The Deadpool is a Funk pop Bobblehead. There were possible versions, red suit or X-force Gray suit. I got the gray suit.  There was pop vinyl figure back in the August block.

The official Avengers prop is Agent Coulson’s Vintage Captain America Trading cards. These are great there’s two sets of the cards. One  in mint condition one blood stained. Great for Agent Coulson or Nick Fury costumers. This is my favorite item in the box. A quick search shows this retailing at $40.

This said this month will be my last Nerd Block unboxing. We just got hit with some unexpected expenses and we have to trim some things. The mystery box is one of them. Being an adult sucks. November’s box will have a Boba Fett item and a one in seven chance of having an Bruce Campbell Autograph. Plus some time in the future Bruce Campbell will be the Nerd Block curator.

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.

We’ve got a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle item in this month’s Nerd Block that is already being dubbed by our staff as their top Nerd Block item of 2014!

I don’t know what will be in the box. But I’m looking forward to the TMNT item. I’m hoping the shirt is cool. Speaking of nerd blocks shirts last month I same someone in public with the July TMNT Shirt. It was cool to see another subscribe in a random encounter. A couple of days later was when the august box was on my doorstep with the awesome pop vinyl Harley Quinn.
