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 delivery includes a card that details the items in the box.

There 2 new things to mention in this delivery - first, it looks like they are only sending out eCredit to the Nerd Block store now:

Feel free to use my code!

And second - they are rebranding this box in January:

It looks like you'll be seeing fantasy items in the box as well.

20,000 Leagues Under The Sea Shirt - Value $15?

This month's shirt features the Nautilus from 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea being attacked by a giant squid. While I'm not a massive fan of the book - I just like the shirt because it looks like something you'd find on Threadless!

Death Star Pencil Holder - Value $10-15?

This little chrome painted Death Star is 3 inches tall.

It doesn't have a ton of detail, but it's sure to be the shiniest Death Star you'll own.

Star Wars Alderaan Tie - Value $15-20?

Dressing up for the holidays? Now you can sport the demise of poor Alderaan.

Poor Alderaan was one of the planets to feel the full wrath of the Death Star. I like the design of the tie - and it's really shiny, so you're sure to stand out.

Star Trek Borg Puzzle Cube - Value $15-20?

This adds to my collection of Rubik's Cubes - my favorite still being the Hellraiser Puzzle Cube!

It's kind of tough to see what you're supposed to match up from cube to cube - but that makes sense when you remember what a Borg cube looks like:

Terminator 2 Shot Glasses - Value $10?

This month included two shot glasses as well.

scifi-block-december-2016-0013

scifi-block-december-2016-0014

You'll receive a black Skynet and a chrome Terminator shot glass. They're disappointing, though, both graphics are crooked on mine - did you have this problem?

Fleet Pin - Value $5-10?

Lastly, they include a fleet pin from Starship Troopers! I've never been that big on pins, but this is definitely one of the better ones!

Verdict: December was pretty good for Sci-Fi Block. I like most of the ideas for products in the box, but some of them had some quality issues and that knocked some of the items down a bit. I'll be interested to see where they go as they re-brand in Sci-Fan Block in January.

What did you think of the December Sci-Fi Block?

I quite enjoyed this box. Last month was an epic fail for me, but I feel like they’ve made up for it this month! I’m super stoked about the rebranding. I’m very into both sci-fi and fantasy, and the fact that there’s gonna be a D&D item next month has me really excited. I feel like the box has been the same 8-10 fandoms and opening up fantasy avenues will make for much more intersting boxes.

Adding fantasy items? Then it might as well be any other box. I liked that this was just sci Fi.

The tie is an epic fail. I’m female and I don’t wear ties.

The best thing in the box was the tshirt, and I’m not a huge fan of that series.

I doubt that I’ll subscribe much longer, the toe really bugs me.
