May’s theme was Heroes For Hire and featured A LOT of Marvel characters! Inside, there are items from Deadpool, Jessica Jones, Guardians of the Galaxy, Groot, and Ace Ventura!
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Shirt – Value $15?
This month’s exclusive shirt features Awesome Mix Vol. 2 from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2! Peter Quill’s second mixtape is the perfect little callout, and is still ultra-recognizable, for the latest entry into the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Deadpool Mug with Stirring Spoons – Value $15+?
One of the bigger ticket items of the month is actually two items – this mug and the coaster/saucer later in this review.
The mug comes with a holster for the cream and sugar spoons and looks like Deadpool’s swords when they’re sheathed – great design! The mug itself is handwash only and is not microwave safe.
Deadpool Coaster – Value $5-10?
This coaster, or really a saucer, is the other piece of the Deadpool drinkware puzzle.
It’s got that classic Deadpool logo look and feel to it. If you don’t want to use as a coaster – I think this could also work as a key tray.
Put them both together for a classy tea time with your buddy Deadpool.
Baby Groot 3D Magnet – Value $10?
This month’s Groot item is a magnet of the character!
I was really disappointed with the quality of this item – the paint job is sloppy, and with the glued on magnets, it almost feels like an art project.
Jessica Jones Alias Investigations Business Card Holder – Value $10?
I guess I have a collection of Marvel Netflix character business card holders after last month’s Loot Crate DX. Nerd Block’s features Jessica Jones instead of Daredevil.
Like the Daredevil card holder – this is a cool business card holder – and is nice and subtle enough at the same time.
Ace Ventura Laces Out Pin – Value $5?
The final item in the box really hit its target demographic with me – it’s a Laces Out pin from Ace Ventura! Ray Finkle’s battle cry is featured – with Miami Dolphins colors – on this month’s pin!
This might be my favorite pin. EVER!
Verdict: This was a solid box from Nerd Block – I really like the shirt and pin – but nothing felt like a really strong hero item to me. The three biggest items in the box, the mug, coaster, and magnet were all made by the same company, and they all felt a tad sloppily made – especially the magnet. Without that issue, it’s probably a homerun for me.
