Arcade Block Subscription Box Review – May 2015 Info

Each box comes with a card detailing the items included.

Arcade Block Subscription Box Review – May 2015 Tee

Fantasy Fighter T-Shirt – Value $10

This is an exclusive ShirtPunch T-Shirt for Arcade Block based on Final Fantasy. (It’s made with 100% Heavy Cotton).

Arcade Block Subscription Box Review – May 2015 Cart

South Park Stick of Truth Figure The Grand Wizard by Kid Robot – Value $17

Subscribers will receive one of five figures. I think my first choice would be Cartman, so we lucked out, and I bet my husband will try to swap for the rest!

Arcade Block Subscription Box Review – May 2015 Sign

Blue Shell on Board Hanging Car Sign – Value $4?

I couldn’t find this online, so I’m guessing on the value. It’s a fun Mario Kart item, and I have someone in mind to gift it to!

Arcade Block Subscription Box Review – May 2015 Kick Punch

Kick Punch Wood Magnet – Value $4?

Apothecary Jar – Value $6?

I’m not sure what the Kick Punch magnet is from – let me know if you know more! This jar is fun desk accessory – it seems like a classic item for an Arcade Block.

Arcade Block Subscription Box Review – May 2015 Hat

Special Forces Fox Hound Military Cap – Value $15?

This is another item I couldn’t find online, so I’m guessing on the value. The cap is surprisingly well made. It has a padded interior rim, and an adjustable velcro back.

Verdict: Based on my estimates, this box has a value of about $56. I think that’s good for the cost. Not every item was a hit for us this month, but that’s to be expected with geek subscription boxes. The Stick of Truth Cartman figure was definitely a win though!

What do you think of the May 2015 Arcade Block subscription box?

  1. I’m going to have to go through my sub box stuff and list things for swap fast… I NEED that “Kick Punch” magnet from PaRappa the Rapper! I played that game to death, and both myself and my boyfriend remember the raps by heart (we are both in our mid 30’s too lol).

    • It doesnt show it well in the pic here, makes the magnet look flat…..BUT it isnt! The mic/fist section was printed/cut seperately and then put on top of the main magnet for a 3D effect!

  2. I saw that some people are looking for this stuff for sale, check ebay I’ve noticed a bunch of the subscription box stuff for sale on there.

  3. My box came with a heavy smash on the back side, put a nice crush spot on the South Park figure : (

    Wrote Nerdblock, but from previous experiences I can pretty much assume they won’t give a crap.

  4. I need that jar!

    • So do I! I’m not having any luck finding it for sale online. Can anyone who received this box tell me what the words printed at the bottom of the jar say. AZU something?

      • I have spent way more time than I want to admit trying to find this jar. It says Made in USA, heh – we’re looking at the back of the writing. Nerd Block redid how they ship boxes this month, so some people with subscriptions to their various boxes received 2 Arcade Blocks instead of 1 Arcade, 1 Nerd – might see a bunch of these for sale/swap as a result of that. Fingers crossed!

        • Ahahaha! Thank you for solving that puzzle for me!

  5. Oh my goodness, I love that Final Fantasy shirt so much!!!

  6. The jar might be a reference to the video game the binding of Isaac?

    • Jar is Legend of Zelda life hearts 🙂

      • Legend of Zelda Hearts! My 16 year old would had loved this.

  7. Magnet is from PaRappa the Rapper – seriously obscure lil piece 🙂 It was like the Guitar Hero for PS1

    • Yeah, my little brother had that game way back when. I was terrible at it. But I remember that line. I scrolled down to see if someone else had posted, but you beat me to it.
