Gremlins T-Shirt – Value $20?

I couldn’t find this shirt online, but I it’s supposed to be custom for the box, so maybe that’s why I can’t find it! My boyfriend is a Gremlins fan, so this shirt was a win!

Verdict: My boyfriend really liked everything in this box (with the exception of the Wacky Packages), so we’re Nerd Block fans now! We paid $29.49 total for this box and received over $50 worth of items, so I think the value is great too. What do you think of the first Nerd Block box?

  1. Thinking about subscribing to this one. I like the idea of getting a t-shirt in every box, just not too excited about the shipping costs. I enjoy the Loot Crate box, but I’ve had too months of not liking most of the items unless it was a t-shirt, mystery box type item or funko toy. Do you they give out first month discount codes?

    • I haven’t seen a coupon offer from NerdBlock yet. Sorry!

  2. Can’t see paying a full $10 more than loot crate for basically the same items.

  3. Received the same stuff but got the man of steel hero clix which was General Zod. Pretty nice first run and hoping to see what the next few months gives us.

  4. I got a different brand of superhero miniature (man of steel heroclix) than you did, but everything else was the same. I was really pleasantly surprised by this box. The shirt fits well, and my wackypack came with a pretty funny magnet. I can regift the BBT figure and the stickers. Basically, everything but the game/miniature was a hit for me, and the anticipation/surprise was totally worth the cost!

    I also love that they’re Canadian so the shipping cost is way cheaper and the delivery time lower than lootcrate!

  5. hi there; i am so psyched for my first nerd block subscription box (for october.) i am curious though – how would you compare the t-shirt sizes to? would you say its similar to threadless, or woot shirts? thanks!

    • Similar to woot t shirt sizing. Hope that helps!

  6. I am so Jealous of the Gremlins shirt! :O! I was a huge fan as a kid it was one of my favorite movies!

  7. My box was missing the wacky packages stickers so I sent an email to custom service. Except for the shirt the other items received I’ve already gotten in other lootcrate boxes. If they are going to copy I don’t see any reason why I should duplicate subscription services and may cancel this.
