Good To Know: Sci-Fi Block, like all other Nerd Blocks, does not have a monthly theme – but you will know at least a couple of the franchises that will be in the box before it ships.



Each month includes an information card as well. You find information about all of your items here.


Each month includes a $10 credit to ShirtPunch as well. This can be used for shirts and toys!


X-Files Shirt – Value $15?

This month’s exclusive shirt features The X-Files! This is just awesome, and so X-Files – I recently re-watched the episode in season 1 that features Lake Okobogee – so this was a bit timely for me. Also, the fox at the bottom is perfect, too!


X-Files Lunch Bag – Value $10-15?

The second, and final, X-Files item is this Fox Mulder lunch bag.


It’s lined inside to keep your food hot or cold – it’s a fun lunch bag, and perfect for an X-Files fan looking for a new lunch tote!


Star Wars Death Star Ice Mold – Value $12 on Amazon

They include a Star Wars item this month as well. This is a Death Star ice mold. It’ll make 4 Death Stars at a time.


A lot of people loved the single Death Star ice mold from the December Geek Fuel – so I can see this one going over well!


Star Trek: The Original Series Teeny Tin – Value $5?

This is a teenie tiny lunch box featuring Kirk and Spock.


They mean it when they say teeny. Here’s a look at the size.


It’s about the size of an Altoid tin – but with a little more depth.


Doctor Who New Adventures with the Third Doctor #1 – Value $3.99

There’s an issue of New Adventures with the Third Doctor as well. While I’m not a Doctor Who fan, I do love how much comics are extending TV series and movies – it’s a fun way to follow more adventures with some of your favorites. Plus, it’s really easy to put a voice to the characters.


Starship Troopers Temporary Tattoo & Patch Set – Value $5?

They include a patch and tattoo from Starship Troopers – now you can show off this classic tattoo without the pain!


Space Girls Art Print – Value $10?

The final item of the month is a print. This is from artist Tom Kennedy that replicates The Spice Girls – you’ll find some classic heroines here, from Leia to Ripley!

Verdict: I’m not sure how I feel this month’s Sci-Fi Block. I like both X-Files items, and I can see myself using the ice molds – but I’m not really big on any of the remaining items. But, they’ve showcased a lot of great franchises, so I can see fans of those fandoms liking the items. So, it’s really a toss-up for me this month.

What do you think of the September Sci-Fi Block?

  1. This one was bery “meh” for me. I guess I liked everything okay, but I wasn’t really excited about anything. The MST3K dvds from next month’s spoiler have me really stoked though.

  2. I didn’t like this box. To be honest, I thought the box was pretty dinky for $30 and I would have much prefered to have bought things I actually wanted for $30 than this. I looked at past months of Sci-Fi Nerd Blocks to remind myself WHY I thought this would be so cool, but had to go back to May and April of 2016 to find those boxes that struck my fancy to begin with. Imho, these earlier boxes, by same company, were much, much better. If this past summer is any indication, they are sending out cheaper items.
    Something I didn’t know before, rubber death star ice molds are a PAIN IN THE BUM! One big death star, great! 4 little ones? Enjoy them leaking all over your freezer after you had to use surgical precision to fill the damn things with, and I kid you not, a tiny funnel. The other items, a lunch bag and tiny lunch box that holds nothing? Ok… This seemed to be more geared towards geeky children than geeky adults and I just found the whole thing disappointing. WHAT am I going to do with an “art print” other than say, “neat!” and then throw it away? No, really…

  3. Darn it. This subscription box has the best t shirts. I was thinking of subscribing but didn’t because I figured it would be a star wars t shirt and I’m not very into star wars. Now I’m regretting it.
