May didn't have a theme, but they did hint at a number of franchises. May's box featured Predator, Firefly, Masters of the Universe, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Harry Potter, and Stranger Things - A really strong lineup!
Each month comes with a booklet that details every item in the box - including the different variants of the figure and pin that you could have received.
Predator Shirt - Value $15?
This month's exclusive shirt features the most famous line from the movie Predator - "Get Tp The Choppa"!
I'm loving this shirt - but was surprised that it doesn't feature Arnold's character, Dutch, in the graphic!
Guardians of the Galaxy Baby Groot Mug - Value $10-15 base on other Surreal Entertainment mugs
I can't find this exact mug online - so I'm ballparking the value based on prices of the brand's similar mugs on Amazon. The mug features Baby Groot being mischievous with mixtape Vol. 2!
The mug itself is pretty standard - with the same graphic on either side.
Super7 Master of the Universe He-Man Figure - Value $20+?
The original version of this retro figure is selling for $40+ on Amazon - I believe because it was a Comic Con exclusive. This one is also an exclusive variant - it glows in the dark!
Yay for glow in the dark variants!
You'd receive one of three figures this month - He-Man, Man-At-Arms, and Sorceress.
Firefly Socks - Value $10-12?
This month includes a pair of exclusive Firefly socks as well.
These are exactly the same as the Futurama socks from the February Nerd Block Classic box. These are thin, and REALLY tight on my foot - to the point that my foot was falling asleep - that was a big bummer for me.
Harry Potter Enamel Pin - Value $5.95
This month comes with a pin from Harry Potter - you'd receive on of the three best friends - Harry, Hermione, or Ron - I got Harry!
Stranger Things Print - Value $10?
Finally, you'll receive an exclusive print - this print features the same graphic as the September 2016 Shirt Block.
It's got embossed text at the bottom as well. Definitely one of their best shirts, and now the best print, across their blocks!
Verdict: I was really excited when hearing about the franchises for the May box - and they really delivered. My biggest issue is with the really tight socks, which might not be an issue for everyone - besides that, I really liked every other item in the box. We got all different types of items as well, a home item, wearables, figure, a print, and a pin - nicely done!
