Nerd Block does not have a theme each month – but, you will know at least 3 of the franchises included in the box when it becomes available for sale.



Each delivery comes with an info card with a little more information on each of the items inside.


The block comes with a $10 voucher to the Nerd Block eStore – these will allow you to get a bonus shirt, or Funko POP, for the cost of shipping. Free to the first reader that uses it!

It looks like they are no longer including the $10 ShirtPunch voucher – but the inventory is pretty much the same since Nerd Block runs ShirtPunch.


The Decepticons Shirt – Value $15?

This month’s shirt is the only item that is not Star Wars themed. It features the Transformers, more specifically the Deceptions. I like the design and color choice – overall, it’s a pretty basic tee.


Darth Vader Mug – Value $15-20?

Everything from here on out is Star Wars themed – and one of the bigger hero products this month is a chrome Darth Vader mug.



Unlike the Daredevil mug in the November Comic Block, this isn’t a tiny mug – it’s a 16 oz mug!


Of course I want a Darth Vader mug, I’ll end up using this one a lot – I like the chrome, but a lot of me wished it was a black chrome or even matte black. But that’s just personal preference. Also – this is NOT dishwasher or microwave safe.


Rogue One Death Trooper Coin Bank – Value $15-20?

This exclusive bank was the item that Nerd Block marked as their hero item of the month.



It’s a hard plastic, shaped like a Death Trooper mask – it’s close to the same size as the Darth Vader mug as well.


You’ll find the plug on the bottom when you’re in need of your change.


Rogue One Coaster Set – Value $10-15?

You’ll get a set of 4 coasters featuring the Dark Side of The Force!



Design-wise, I like them. But, I’m not sure how long these will hold up with frequent use. It looks like they are a think cardboard material – almost like an oversized pog – if anyone remembers what a pog was.


Rogue One Lanyard + Keychain – Value $5-10?

The final item is also from Rogue One.



You’ll get a second Death Trooper item – in the form of this rubber keychain – to go along with an Empire-themed lanyard.

Verdict: This month was understandably heavy on Star Wars – but a bit more surprisingly heavy on The Empire from Star Wars. No good guys this month! Overall, I liked the two hero items, the mug and bank, but wasn’t excited for a lanyard or the coasters. I think most people’s opinion will be based on how much you liked or disliked the two big items this month.

  1. OMG Pogs!!!

  2. I absolutely loved the chrome mug this month. I had to cancel my Nerd Block this month and was so sad, it is so much better than Loot Crate, just couldn’t justify spending an extra $10 in shipping. Who knows how long I’ll stay away though 😁
