Nerd Block is a monthly mystery geek & gamer subscription box. Every month includes a new shirt and Nerd Block boxes are typically filled with fun toys and figurines. It really is a box for everyone who enjoys nerdy and pop culture things.
The July Theme was Humanity’s Last Hope.
Ghostbusters Wallet ($8?) Perfect for containing money, maybe not ectoplasm!
Sewn out of Tyvek, you can see that the edges are tinged with a little escaped ghost! One of my friends works at the building where they’re currently filming and has all these photos of her on the set (because it’s just in the sidewalk!).
You can remove the hanger/keychain from both of these guys if you’re not interested in that functionality. My son took both of these immediately, because they’re super cool! I think my daughter will liberate the Transformers one immediately – she’s really into them! I took the hangers off both. The Danglers are made for attaching to cellphone and handheld videogame consoles.
Mad Max Fury Road Comic – Max Part One ($3.99). So this is an exclusive variant cover (I totally cut off the logo – whoops!).
I can assure you that the contents inside are no different than the regular comic. WHOOPS! [Find all the information about Loot Crate here if you’re unfamiliar!]
Cobra’s Motto T-Shirt ($15) Karate Kid and G.I. Joe. Tom says “DO NOT STOP THE COUNTDOWN! WHY ARE YOU RUNNING AWAY YOU FOOOLS!” Obviously he’s a fan of Cobra Commander (he says GI Joes are so highly trained that they can jump out of their vehicles right before the lasers hit them). And who doesn’t love Karate Kid?! (Although, really, Karate Kid does not save the world!)
Titans Vinyl Figure Buffy the Vampire Slayer Spike ($12.99) This design is actually an exclusive to the box. I love love love BTVS. LOVE. And Angel too if you’re asking. Spike does redeem himself in the end, as we knew he would! I love this and am putting it on my desk at work!
Overall this was a pretty good block for us. I wasn’t wowed by the execution of the theme, but we like all the characters/franchises, and my husband is pretty pumped about his new shirt. FYI – promo code Continue may work for 20 or 25% off your first Nerd Block!
