Nerd Block Subscription Box Review – February 2014

NerdBlock Subscription Box Review - January 2014 Review

Nerd Block is a monthly subscription box for geeks and gamers. This box typically includes at least a figurine or two, and always a new exclusive shirt. Compared to Loot Crate, I’ve found that their seems to be more variety in boxes each month among subscribers. (This can be a good or bad thing depending on what you get in your box!)

NerdBlock Subscription Box Review - January 2014 Halo

HALO Action Clix – Value $6

Power Ranger Mashems – Value $1.50

We have a friend who loves HALO, so these mini figurines are going straight to him! (The power ranger was a bit of a disappointment though).

NerdBlock Subscription Box Review - January 2014 ET

Battle Beasts MiniMates 2 Pack – Retail Value $12

E.T. Mystery Foil Pack – Retail Value $4

E.T. was one of my favorite movies growing up, so this was a fun little addition to the box! (From what I can tell on Instagram, this MiniMates item varied per box).

NerdBlock Subscription Box Review - January 2014 Shirt

Samus Shirt – Value $20

Each Nerd Block box comes with an exclusive shirt. I really like this aspect of the subscription because even if some of the other items included aren’t for us, the shirt in itself almost makes the box cost worth it. (And the shirts so far have been good quality and made with 100% cotton).

Playful Gorilla Presents the 80’s GelaSkins – Value $8

The Smurfs Tag-Athon Collectible Game Piece – Value $1

Verdict: This box wasn’t our favorite Nerd Block, but that’s just due to personal preferences. (My husband would have liked this box a lot more if we had received Marvel items like some other subscribers!). I think with Nerd Block and Loot Crate the value for you can really vary depending on whether or not they include items from some of your favorite shows, movies, books, etc. – so it’s a bit of a gamble!

I think we’ll be swapping some of these items and hoping that we luck out with the March Nerd Block! What did you think of Nerd Block this month?

  1. This was my first Nerd Block (or sunscription box of any kind) and it left me very very underwhelmed. The t-shirt was cool and I loved the 80’s stickers but otherwise no use for me. Hoping March can convince me to stay subscribed. (giving it 3 months and if is a bit miss like February will cancel)

  2. Seriously??? The Power Rangers are AWESOME.

  3. This was my first Nerd Block, and it was a bit underwhelming. I loved the T-shirt, but everything else wasn’t super interesting. The figures I’ll probably end up using for DnD. But I’m glad I got a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Mashem instead of a Power Ranger.

  4. I don’t understand why the t-shirts are valued at $20 when they’re originally a t-shirt company that sells their shirts for $10 (and once put one of the “exclusive” shirts on their daily site giving it a $10 price tag).

    • You’d gave to pay shipping through the shirt site.

      • *That should be have not gave!
