Nerd Block unboxing time!
Kevin Smith is the Guest Curator for this month’s Nerd Block. The theme is Collide: Marvel versus DC. They teased that the box would include a tee-shirt, Deadpool Figure, an Avengers replica prop, and on the noncomic side some kind of Zelda related item.
So What’s in the Box?
Let’s see what’ in the box.
The A Legend of Zelda Dangler.
Arkham Asylum patient notebook. I can’t find much about this online other than other unboxing post it’s cool.
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.
MSRP: $40 (Plus Shipping/Handling)

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.
Nerd Block subscriptions ends in five days. Here is what we know about October’s block.

Deadpool is bringing his wise-crackin’ smart mouth attitude to Nerd Block Classic this month in the form of a limited figure!
With two variations of the figure that you could receive, this is a Block you don’t want to miss!

LEGO CUUSOO has announced the results of their current review. They were reviewing four projects. the results are.
EVE Online Ships – Rifter the LEGO Review Board has decided that this project does not meet the requirements for the business case
The Modular Western Town would conflict with the upcoming Lone Ranger line so it will not be made.
The Legend of Zelda will not be made due to the cost of making news molds for the mini-figs in the games.
But one set did make the cut and passed the review. One of the best film trilogies will be made into LEGO form.
Back to the Future DeLorean Time Machine
by m.togami* and Sakuretsu
After analyzing the supporters of the Back to the Future project, we learned that this product has a broad, worldwide appeal. The model presented in this project is built very closely to the LEGO Group’s design standards and has therefore provided a strong base to design the final product. It has a high play value and it fits well with supporters’ price expectations.
For these reasons, the Back to the Future project has passed the LEGO Review, and has been selected for production as the next LEGO CUUSOO set. The final product, pricing, and release dates are still being determined.
I’m really excited about Back to the Future theme. I would have like also had Zelda approved cause it is so popular. New western stuff would be cool as well, I guess they are banking on Lone Ranger to fill that void in the LEGO line.
