Nerd Block Subscription Box Review – March 2015
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. Nerd Block recently introduced Arcade Block, so this box is now known as Nerd Block Classic.
This box was sent to us for review purposes. (Check out the review process postto learn more about how we review boxes).
The Subscription Box: Nerd Block
The Cost: $19.99 plus shipping (Shipping is $8.75 to Canada, $9.50 to US, $12.50 Worldwide)
The Products: Every Nerd Block comes with a custom t-shirt (in your size) and 5-6 epic items for you to tear into!
Ships to: US, Canada, and Worldwide!
Each box comes with a card detailing the items included for that month. They also released spoilers for the upcoming April Box:
Guardians of the Galaxy Nesting Dolls 6 Piece Set – Value $15? (Basing the value off of this Avengers set).
My husband and I both love Guardians of the Galaxy, so we were pretty excited when we saw the spoiler hints for this box.
For the magnet, subscribers will receive Rocket Raccoon, Star Lord or Groot.
This box also promised an exclusive Baby Groot item – which turned out to be the smallest nesting doll in the nesting doll set.
I was expecting something a little more substantial for the Baby Groot item, so we were kind of disappointed in this item.
Munny World Multicolor Edition Trikky – Value $7
We’ve received DIY figures in a few different geeky subscription boxes before, and since we don’t have much artistic talent, they always get swapped or gifted.
April Fools Pack – Value $2?
This April Fools Pack was also in the Nerd Block Jr boxes this month – it includes a whoopie cushion and two “ice cubes” with flys in them.
Nerd Do Well by Simon Pegg – Value $16
I love that Nerd Block is including books in their boxes now! I can’t wait to read this one either – it gets great reviews on Amazon.
Here is the synopsis:
The unique life story of one of the most talented and inventive comedians, star of Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, Paul, Spaced, and Star Trek.
Zombies in North London, death cults in the West Country, the engineering deck of the Enterprise — actor, comedian, writer, and supergeek Simon Pegg has been ploughing some bizarre furrows. Having landed on the U.S. movie scene in the surprise cult hit Shaun of the Dead, his enduring appeal and rise to movie stardom has been mercurial, meteoric, megatronic, but mostly just plain great.
From his childhood (and subsequently adult) obsession with science fiction, his enduring friendship with Nick Frost, and his forays into stand-up comedy, which began with his regular Monday-morning slot in front of his twelve-year-old classmates, Simon has always had a severe and dangerous case of the funnies.
Whether recounting his experience working as a lifeguard at the city pool, going to Comic-Con for the first time and confessing to Carrie Fisher that he used to kiss her picture every night before he went to sleep, or meeting and working with heroes that include Peter Jackson, Kevin Smith, and Quentin Tarantino, Pegg offers a hilarious look at the journey to becoming an international superstar.
A Slice of Fried Gold T-Shirt – Value $10
I believe this is an exclusive Simon Pegg movie mashup shirt made for Nerd Block. It’s a hit with my husband!
Verdict: This box was a bit of a mixed bag for us. On one hand, we were really excited about the Simon Pegg items, and on the other the exclusive Baby Groot spoiler hint was a bit of a letdown. Of course, we’re already excited about the spoilers for the upcoming April Nerd Block box though!
