September Nerd Block Unboxing.


It’s Nerd Block  time. The hints for this month were a Classic TMNT item, a scribblenauts item, and a Guardians of The Galaxy shirt and a STD. Lets see what was in the box.  Plus an announcement about October’s block.

Mega Bloks series 2 blind Bag ($2.99) Series 2 featured characters from the Marvel movies but not actual screen versions of the characters. These figures were released a few years ago.  I got Captain America. I already have this figure. I may send him to ebay or put him in our booth.

Nerd block contents

DC Collectibles Scribblenauts Unmasked Series 2 Mystery Figure ($4.99) Nice looking figure plus a code for a digital comic.

Nerd Block stress relief squishy brain. (~2.99) It’s cool.

The big TMNT item is a paper craft set by boxos and funko. ($9.99 ) The set has all four turtles, Splinter, Shredder, a foot solider, a pizza place and the Turtle van. Not sure what to this of this. Not nearly as cool an item as I was expecting when they said “dubbed by our staff as their top Nerd Block item of 2014.”

Ninja Turtles are cool. I’ve built a few papercraft items. I just don’t know if I want to set this up. My son is too young to build it and not destroy it.

The STD item is a Giant Microbe. It is a plush toy of a microscopic organism. I guessed this was what we would get when they said the box included an STD. The toy is bagged with a card with information about the microscopic organism. There’s a card that says not for people under 12 years of age. But the same info in on a post card in the box. The card has facts about STDs such as *one in every 4 collage students has had an STD. Yes they spelled it as collage not college.

Anyway you could have caught one of four bug from the box. Mine had Chlamydia.

The best thing this month is the shirt.  An Awesome mix tape Guardians of the Galaxy shirt.

Classic Spaceman minifig


September 1-14 LEGO VIP members can get a classic spaceman minifigure with a $99 purchase at LEGO Stores. I held off on buying a few sets till the first so I could get this set. The set includes a classic spaceman in a white outfit and a black robot. The set was a quick build since it is two figures. It comes in a nice box with a booklet. The booklet show the box art from the Space theme and some of the space minifigs.
If you are interested be quick. I have a feeling these guys won’t last long.

What else did I get today?
The 2014 Star Wars Advent Calendar, a Spider-man set, and a LEGO Ideas set. The Advent calendar features Santa Darth Vader. Yes! I’ve tried not to look at the box or online pictures too much but have glimpsed enough original trilogy stuff to make me happy. I will blog this calendar in December. I also picked up Spider-man verse Electro set and since it was in stock and the movie is in theaters this weekend, I got the Ghost Busters set. Hopefully I can build this later in the week.
