A few days after I signed up for Loot Crate, I came across Nerd Block and decided to sign up for that as well. Both boxes arrived on the same day and the Nerd Block was a big larger and quite a bit heavier. Let’s a take a look inside!
So April’s theme was “Growing Up 80’s”. It’s a blast from the past and the perfect month to start since I grew up in (and still love) the 1980’s. As you can tell by the card, there’s an exclusive vinyl ECTO-1 figurine.
Made by Titans Vinyl Figures, it’s similar to POP! Vinyl. I think it looks cooler left in the box thanks to the box’s background of the Ghostbusters firehouse.
This is great! A Pac-Man heat changing mug. When the mug is warm, it comes to life and Pac-Man, the ghosts and the pellets appear. Very cool. I LOVE collecting coffee mugs: Doctor Who, Marvel, Christmas, KISS, Easter, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, Disney, etc… Now I can add Pac-Man to the list!
This one may stray from the 80’s theme, I don’t know. I’ve never read it but I’m sure it features tons of pop culture references from various decades. I’m not necessarily a Kevin Smith fan but he can be pretty funny sometimes so I’m looking forward to reading this one soon.
I know cosplay is a big thing these days, but trading cards? Really? I guess I don’t take it that seriously. I just like seeing hot chicks in skimpy tight clothing.
And now, the shirt…
YES!!! Back to the Future is one of my favorite movies of all time. If you look closely, you’ll see that each Delorean is representative of its appearance in each of the three movies. I love this shit and I haven’t even worn it yet.
So that’s it! I’m extremely happy with Nerd Block. Lots of cool things here and as much I as liked this month’s Loot Crate, I think Nerd Block wins April.
Nerd Block has a couple of different boxes you can subscribe to. There’s a Nerd Block Jr. for girls and one for boys, Horror Block, Comic Book Block, Arcade Block and the classic Nerd Block (which is what I’m subscribed to). I would love to try the other boxes but I don’t want to miss out on the classic Nerd Block either. Decisions, decisions…
