Better late than never, right? I finally got the July Nerd Block yesterday!

Each month, you’ll find a card with all of your items. Use this to find out more information about each item in the box. This month, they also included items from their past subscription boxes – so everyone got bonus items!

You’ll also now get a $10 credit to ShirtPunch. You can use this money to buy any type of product in their store – and they have a ton of Funko POPs! This won’t cover your shipping, though, so you’ll be paying $6 shipping for a lot of items.

Ghostbusters T-Shirt – Value $15?

This month’s shirt features Gozer’s minion, Zuul, from Ghostbusters 1! I immediately thought of this scene:



I just crack up thinking about Louis Tully in general.

Nerd Block July 2016 - 4

The Joker Bleacher Creature – Value $10-15?

They included an exclusive bleacher creature from Suicide Squad this month – and it’s the Joker! I’m excited and nervous to see the latest iteration of The Joker on screen – how are you feeling about it?

Nerd Block July 2016 - 5

Attack on Titan Blind Bag – Value $5 on Amazon

We got a blind bag backpack hanger featuring a character from Attack on Titan. I got Annie. I like the mold of these little vinyl characters, but you can only use them as backpack hangers, they don’t really stand on their own – unless you super glue them to a base. hmmmmm….

Nerd Block July 2016 - 6

Harley Quinn Black and White Pocket POP – Value $7+

There is also an exclusive Pocket POP this month! Get ready for Suicide Squad with a black and white Harley Quinn Pocket POP! Usually, I can leave these freestanding – but this one just doesn’t cooperate! This is a great little Pocket POP, though, I like the sculpt! I’m happy to see an exclusive Funko item in a Nerd Block, in the past, they had mostly exclusive Titan vinyls.

Nerd Block July 2016 - 9

Transformers Pin – Value $5?

This is yet another exclusive item this month. They sent out an Autobot insignia pin to celebrate the 30th anniversary of The Transformers: The Movie. I, beyond all odds, never got into Transformers as a kid, so I don’t follow them, or get excited for them, now. That’s ok, I think I have enough fandoms 🙂

All subscribers got some bonus items from previous blocks this month. They didn’t specify them on the card, though.

Exclusive Aliens 2-Pack Vinyl Figures – Value $30.00

This item comes from the October Horror Block. I still love the Alien detail and its tongue – very cool. This is something I don’t mind having duplicates of, either – I have friends that love this kind of stuff, so it’s easy to gift or add multiple Aliens to a display!

Nerd Block July 2016 - 7

Awkward Family Photos Postcards – Value $7-10 on Amazon

This item first appeared in last August’s Nerd Block. These are fun to cycle through – they still crack me up.

Nerd Block July 2016 - 8

It’s kind of like walking down memory lane because I remember when the book and site were first a thing – so these are fun.

Nerd Block July 2016 - 10

Night Of The Living Dead Magnet Set – Value ?

And finally, the last item first appeared in the September Horror Block. I gifted these to my brother – so I think he’ll be getting a second set!

Verdict: This month’s box was an ok box for me – I think that’s mainly due to the fandoms I follow. I really like the shirt and Pocket POP – but the other items weren’t too exciting for me. It’s great that they’re including free items in the box as well, it’s adding on top of the value that’s already there with the 5 featured items. Also – I personally love the inclusion of the ShirtPunch credit – I always use them to buy POPs!

What did you think of the July Nerd Block?

  1. Wow, OK, I was confused when we got extra stuff! We got the Ripley and Alien Titans, which we already had, so we’re gifting them, most likely. I wish we had gotten the Parker one this time. At least that would have been different! We also got the cards and we got Super Mario magnets, which we didn’t already have. I couldn’t figure out why we had extra stuff in our box this month. Cool, though!

  2. You seem to have gotten Armen from the Attack on Titan blind bag, not Annie. Annie has eyelashes and a different hair style / pose. That having been said, it’s not the highest quality figurine, so the distinctions are limited.

    • Apparently it’s spelled Armin, not Armen. That’s what I get for only watching the anime and not reading the manga.

  3. When do these normally ship? I have a box in transit BUT I signed up specifically so i could start with the August box. Any clue what I will be getting?
