I recently received a discount code to try out Nerd Block once again, so I figured I'd give it a shot.
Nerd Block is a blind box service that delivers a box full of "nerd" goodies every month for about $30. $20 for the box and $10 shipping. It's a good deal as far as product goes, but I stopped getting them because they just weren't putting enough things I'm interested in for me to keep the service going.
I received my new box in the mail and was surprised to see that they box has changed some. There seem to be fewer items in the box but the quality of the items has gone up.
This is a good thing. One of the things I didn't like was that there were a bunch of "filler" items like stickers that were kinda disappointing.
Let's look at each item shall we:
Nerf Zombie Strike Blaster:
Woo Hoo! This is a cool surprise, I love me some Nerf Blasters. This is a cool single shot blaster that uses the disks instead of darts, and is from the zombie strike line. I'll let you know how effective it is next time I run into a zombie.
Ninja Turtles Shirt
Ninja turtles are cool, but I'm not a big fan of the design. This was another thing I wasn't crazy about with Nerblock. They sometimes including odd t-shirt designs, sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't. For me, this one doesn't.
Comic-Con DVD with mini figs.
This one really surprised me. I've never seen this documentary so I'm looking forward to it. The mini figures were hilarious. The figs are Harry Knowles from Ain't it Cool News and Stan Lee. The other set included Joss Whedon and Morgan Spurlock (the films director) the timing is perfect too since San Diego Comic Con starts this week.
Star Wars Insider Magazine
Not so long ago I was a big reader of this magazine, but slacked off reading it. Super extra bonus is the Jeffrey Brown cover and article. I've seen his stuff on shelves and thought it looked hilarious, but haven't picked it up... Yet. Something tells me this article may send me out shopping.
So that's it for this month, an impressive haul. I originally was only going to get this one box, but now I may get another one to see if this box was a fluke or if the quality is this good every month.
I may also check out some of the options that have been added to the Nerblock family; Nerblock Jr for boys and or girls and horror block.
