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.

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.

Next Time in Nerd Block!

Beginning January 2015, Nerd Block  Classic will have a different theme every month! As a preview into the world of themes Nerd Block has asked October’s Guest Curator, Kevin Smith, to choose a theme for this October’s Block! He chose the theme Collide: Marvel vs DC! You read that right Kevin Smith of jay and silent bob is choosing what will be in the next Nerd Block and it will be comic book themed.

        Seriously though. DC and Marvel and Kevin Smith? Lordy. I think I want to do this more than the beauty box deal at this point! 🙂
