My boys, ages 7 and 17, love Arcade Block. They couldn’t wait to get into the March box.

I seem to accidentally, on purpose, cut off Mega Man’s head in the picture. You will see why later in the review. March’s box is amazing with a variety of fandoms that the family will enjoy.

The exclusive Nemesis figure is the perfect way to celebrate Resident Evil’s 20th Anniversary. Nemesis is the antagonist in the game and the movie. I can’t believe it has been 20 years since the first game came out. I did not know the movies were based on a game. The details on the figure are stunning.

T (age 17)- How could Mom not know about the games? I did not know there were movies! The figurine has nice detail.

The Exclusive Just Cause 3 Grapple Hook is a replica of the one Rico uses in the game. The hand looks realistic. Jsut Cause 3 is an open world action game. The Grapple hook can hold memos or photos. Imagine this on your desk at work!

J (age 7)  – I checked, and the grapple hook does not shoot out. T can have it.

Pokemon Nesting Balls

I’ve accepted that Pokemon will be in my life for a long, long time. J loved the exclusive Pokemon Nesting Dolls. They are from left to right: Mega Charizard X, Charizard, Charmeleon, Charmander, and the Pokeball, I asked J if they are all related and still don’t understand.

J – They are cool. They represent how to catch a Pokemon and how they evolve.

See why I subconsciously cut out Mega Man’s head in the group shot? His eyes look creepy.

T – Mega Man you look really weird. Better get your eyes checked. It seems they’re making a Mega Man cartoon for next year, which is the 30th anniversary.

It’s a Deadpool and Burger Taco Time t-shirt by Shirtpunch. Shirtpunch comes up with brilliant ideas for their shirts. I remember playing Burger Time as a child!

T – It’s J’s first Deadpool shirt. Mom, why did you change the shirt size?

J – The shirt looks cool because Deadpool is trying to make a taco and eat it.

The word of the day is Exclusive. The March Arcade Block has 100% exclusive items which is incredible especially if you are a collector. The figurines are detailed and are well known items from their franchises. The Pokemon Nesting Balls and Marvel Deadpool Video Game Shirt appeal to J. None of us know what to make of the Mega Man plush toy. It’s a great mix of items with fandoms that appeal to adults and children.

The Nerd Block Family, like Pokemon, is constantly evolving.

    At the very end, you suggest:
    Now through May 15 every new subscription from Nerd Block will come with a free shirt (one per customer). **You can combine this with the code** SAVE15 for 15% off your first box.

    Indeed, the free “Welcome Shirt” is offered at the final check-out, (no extra cost for shipping it! Amazing.) but you are incorrect about **combining** it with the save15 code–or any other code for that matter; on their FAQ page, they clarify that the shirt promo offer CANNOT be combined with any codes, subscription package discounts, or other offers. At the “review order” screen, there is a drop-down box to specify which size/style of shirt you want, but if you start to type anything into the code textbox, a little warning will appear: “tread carefully, Obi-wan…the use of any code will invalidate your free Welcome Shirt offer! Are you sure?” or something like that.
    As for me, I put a code in anyway, hit “Validate Code,” and sure enough, the discount was applied, but the “Welcome Shirt” cart item listing was gone.

    P.S. Their FAQ listing for the promo also notes that the welcome shirt will be from the back stock of Nerd Block’s previous monthly boxes…at the final check-out screen, along with size/style, they ask you to specify which themed-block category (Classic, Arcade, Sci-fi, etc.) you want the shirt to have come from.
    I looked at the reviews of boxes from the past few months to get a good guess about what shirts they would probably choose from in each category!

      Thank you so much! This is contrary to what they previously said to us so we’ll update.
