The Nerd Block motto!
This is a bonus to celebrate Nerd Block's first anniversary!
Scribblenauts Unmasked ($5.99)
I've never heard of Scribblenauts before now and I still don't really understand what they are!
This Gaurdians of the Galaxy theme t-shirt is exclusive to Nerd Block subscribers. The value is approximate based on similar style and quality t-shirts.
Giant Microbes STD Plush - The Pox ($9.95)
I didn't know what to make of this one but after reading the accompanying card (below), I get they are looking to bring awareness to STD's. It's a cute way to do it I guess. Thankfully I have a co-worker who loves this kind of crazy stuff so I passed it on to her... and now she can forever claim that I gave her Syphilis.
STD's - even uglier than you realized!
Funko Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Papercraft Playset ($9.99)
This is the boy version of paper dolls. It's pretty hilarious.
Nerd Block contained five products, valued around $32, plus a cool custom T-shirt. With tax and shipping, this box cost me $30.18. When you factor in the estimated value of the t-shirt, this box is worth close to $50. I only subscribed to Nerd Block to review a couple Blocks for my blog, but if you're into sci-fi, comics, video games, and that sort of thing, this is a fun box. Most of the items I received will be donated to a holiday toy drive in December.
If you are interested in trying Nerd Block, they have released a spoiler for the October box. The theme is COLLIDE - Marvel vs. DC and the items will be selected by famed director Kevin Smith!
