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.

Nerd Block July Unboxing: ComicCon Edition


It’s Nerd Block Time! They call it comic con in a box and this month they really mean it. Timed to arrive just before Comic Con this week they included an actual Comic Con item but more on that later.

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 Star Wars Insider  The magazine focused on Star Wars. I used to get this but let my subscription lapse since there were no new movies planned. Now that Disney is producing more films maybe it’s time to renew. The Cover article is Jeffery Brown’s Darth books. These are cool books I have Darth Vader Father and Son book. I love it. Star Wars Insider retails for $7.99. This is the first of two Star Wars items this month.

NERF Zombie Strike Ricochet ($7.99) Read about it in Nerf Wika. They give it a retail of $7.99. It is neat. Too big for my son to use. I could use it as a costume accessory. If I get finish my steam punk outfit.  Here’s a picture of how others have painted NERF guns for costume uses.

The shirt is a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles design. Turtles are awesome I will wear this one. Retail ~$11.00TMNT_shirt

The second Star Wars item is a deformed plush vehicle. I got the Millennium Falcon. Their postcard also showed an AT-AT and an X-wing. Any of them would have be cool but I’m glad I got my favorite ship.

The Comic Con tie-in is a DVD of Comic-Com IV A Fan’s hope. It is a documentary on Comic Con. I haven’t watched it yet.I hope it is entertaining.  It has interviews with Stan Lee and Joss Whedon. Which partly explains how Nerd Block tied them into this month the other reason, the dvd included a PVC figure of Stan Lee and Harry Knowles of Ain’t It Cool News. Others sets had Joss whedon and the Morgan Spurlock, who directed the documentary.

I found a little history on the figures. NECA had them a while back and there were only 20,000 of the figures made.

In review some cool stuff this month. A Star Wars magazine, A NERF gun, a plush Millennium Falcon, A cool TMNT shirt, and a DVD with a Stan Lee figure.

Nerd Block June Unboxing


I had a day off on Friday. I spent part of the day shooting mini figs. I had just download the  new images to the computer. Thunderstorms have been in the forecast all day and they finally started. I could hear the thunder outside my office, I glanced out the window and saw the rain falling but not heavily. I spotted the mail truck outside and figure I better get the mail before the rain got bad.

I shut down the computer and downstairs. As I opened the door, the lights go out. We just lost power. And where it was light rain a few moments before it was now pouring outside. I stepped on the porch and the wind is blew rain in my face. There’s thunder and lighting  but the porch is covered so I thought I’ll wait out the storm. The lights flicker back. Then there’s a Kaaarck as a tree limb crashes to the ground.

I watched the rain awhile longer then decided it’s not slowing down so I’ll head back inside. I turn around and there at my feet is the my first Nerd Block.

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. I signed up for the June box because they announced there were two shirts and a Doctor Who item in the June block.

So What’s in the Box?

I’ll  start with the smallest item, a Minecraft sticker by Jinx. Retail $1.99. Cool if you play the game. I don’t but will pass it on to somebody that does play.

But the big surprise in this box was a game.

Nerd Block unboxingIt’s a Nerd Block pin art game. You make shapes and design by pushing the pins. This will live on my desk and most likely appear in action figure photo some day.

Here is  the Doctor in the blue box of pins.

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. I saw “vinyl figure on mine.” which was the Doctor Who figure. After the unboxing I read the entire label. It specfically said Mario cart racer but were listed in generic terms; shirt, sticker, game.

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