Nerd Block August Unboxing


What is Nerd Block?

Nerd Block is a monthly subscription service for geeks. Every month, subscribers will receive a package containing a t-shirt and 4-6 toys or collectables. You pick the shirt size but the design and toys are unknown.

So What’s in the Box?

First up is Garbage pail minikins series 2($2.99). Two figures with matching stickers. I remember Garbage pail from when I was little. There were gross and fun. I got Micheal Mutant ans Pete Seat. Pete Seat is a yellow Variant version. That bag said yellow was ultra rare but I have no clue as to how rare. The comic store version have peach as their ultra rare and they are 1 in 12. Yellow rare were sold in retail blind bags.

The shirt is a pokemon pokeball.  It is a cool design. I like the look of it but since I don’t play Pokemon, this may end up on E-bay or storenvy.

September Nerd Block: They have said September’s box will include a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle item from the classic cartoon series.  Plus some big reveal about the box sometime this week. I’ll update it here.


Nerd Block made their Big announcement. In addition to the classic Nerd Block, Jr Nerd Blocks, and the Horror Block, they now have an Arcade Block focused on gaming. The first one ships on September 25. You have four weeks to decide if you want one.



Spoiler alert! If you get a box don’t read the shipping label. There is a mini invoice on it that tells whats inside. It’s vague but may reveal more than you want to know.

Do you enjoy this review? Any questions. I’m considering reviewing the Nerd Block as a monthly feature.

800 Posts

With this post I hit the 800 mark. I can’t believe I hit this milestone. I really enjoy creating these images and writing the blog. The site keeps growing July 2014 was the most traffic this site has ever had. Plus for August we’ve  already doubled last year’s numbers. In fact it is very likely that later today we will surpass last year total views with four more months still to go in the year.

I have several things in the works for the site,  The August nerd block review will be soon. It has been photographed I still need to read the periodicals that was part of the set, plus research some of the items. I will say I did get an awesome Funko pop item. I promised a nanoblock review I am working on it as well. And of course I have more action figure photo in the works.


Thank you all for following.

Minion Surprise Figures Update

I previously posted about new Minion Surprise blind foil bags. At that point I had not found the new bags in store. Well I finally found them at Toys R Us. from the  image on thinkway’s site, I was worried the new and old figures might be mixed in the bags. They are not. The new ones are labeled as Despicable Me Minion Made, Minion Surprise.

There are eleven figures pictured on the bag and checklist card. See the Minion Made list below. All these but the kicking minion are in the Toys R us Boxed set. The box set is $19.99 and the bags are $2.99 at Toys R Us. I do not see any cheat code for these.  The bags have the same  code, D62504 stamped on the bottom of each bag. The figure is packaged in a way that makes it hard to use the feel method to determine what minion is in the bag.
