Every box contains the new Nerd Block Magazine.

This month’s theme is HEROES FOR HIRE!  The magazine comes with feature stories —  this one features 10 facts about the Guardians of the Galaxy!

The centerfold gives you a list of all the items included, plus a brief description of them.

Everything in the May box!

Alias Investigations Business Card Holder

This little card holder is from Jessica Jones!

I just thought this was funny, it’s basically the same card holder that was in Loot Crate DX last month (just a different franchise), which is a much more expensive box! I’m not personally crazy about the business card holders, but I know lots of people are into them. It’s a fun cosplay item!

Laces Out Pin

My husband DIED when he saw this! What a great reference, and I haven’t seen this scene referenced in a box before!

Baby Groot 3D Magnet

This magnet is awesome! Fully sculptured it’s about 5″ high.

Groot holds the mixtape and just looks like he’s hanging on your fridge. One of the best items from Nerd Block!

Deadpool Mug with Stirring Spoons Set

In a bit of a bummer, mine arrived broken. For a review box I normally wouldn’t ask for a replacement, but Deadpool, so Nerd Block is sending one along. I think this is a great mug.

It even has a little backpack on the back for storing the katana spoons.

Deadpool Coaster

The box came with a coaster too. I wasn’t impressed with the quality of this item, it had some serious pitting, and asked for a replacement as well.

It seemed like more of a ring dish than a coaster, but it will certainly be used – because Deadpool! The mug looks great sitting right on it too.

Guardians Of The Galaxy T-Shirt: This officially licensed GOTG vol 2 shirt is a total win!  We loved the design of this shirt, which will totally get worn hundreds of times!

This was a great box from Nerd Block – with much better items than I’ve been seeing from some of their other blocks. I had some quality issues with the two Deadpool items in my box – but I haven’t heard or seen any other complaints about those items from subscribers, so I am happy with the replacement resolution. This Heroes for Hire box was Marvel-heavy, and I can’t say I’m disappointed in that one bit! Next month’s box theme: BADASS WOMEN!!
