Nerd Block: AUGUST 2014 REVIEW
Nerd Block is a monthly mystery package delivered right to your door filled with nerdy apparel, toys, and collectibles! Plans start as low as $13.99 for the Nerd Block, Jr. boxes and $19.99 for Nerd Block Classic and Horror Block.
This is our third Nerd Block box and from what I’ve learned thus far is that there are always a bunch of random items. Sure, a bunch of fun, nerdy things, but random nonetheless. Reactions range from “Sweet!!” to “Uh, sweet…?”
So right off the bat (ha!), I see the Funko Batman which makes me squee! on the inside, a t-shift (natch), and a figurine perhaps? Let’s take it all out!
As you may have guessed, the Funko Batman is a favorite of the box. It’s going in the collection, but I hope I can keep my hands off of it!
My husband saw the Doctor Who mags before I did and proclaimed, “These are yours.” Thank you, Sir, and right you are. These Doctors are mine. It was particularly timely as we had just watched “The Christmas Invasion”, episode 1 of David Tennant’s reign, the same night. I
was am beyond ecstatic.
The rest of the items were a bit of a crapshoot. The Garbage Pail Kids were a part of my generation, but I’m still not sure what I’d do with this mini figures. They’re still mini enough for me not to trust my two-year-old around them.
Next, I was never really a fan of Pokemon (sorry!), but the hubby seemed to like the shirt so I guess it’s a keeper.
Lastly, I have never heard of Bravest Warrior, but the key chain is going up in our collection and will get used eventually.
This box was A-OK for me. [FYI: A-OK is above “meh” and below “awesome”.] While still not as exciting as the June box, it’s enough to keep us subscribing for at least one more month. The Doctor Who mags won me over, the t-shirt for the hubs, Batman for both of us, and the GP Minikids (eventually) for my daughter. A little something for everyone…
