The June sneak peeks showed we would be receiving items from Ghostbusters, Harry Potter, and The Goonies!

The product card doesn't specify a theme this month, but given that they are items from Ghostbusters, The Legend of Zelda, Harry Potter, The Goodnies, Guardians of the Galaxy, and Game of Thrones (phew), it feels like a bit of a fantasy/mystical theme.

Shirt Punch The Legend of Zelda Rupee T-Shirt ($20 value) 
Along with a cool (and exclusive) new t-shirt, we also received a custom code for $10 off at Shirt Punch. There is no minimum purchase required, but the credit does not cover shipping. Shirts are $10-$20, plus shipping. Each promo card is also a piece to a puzzle. Save all 9 promo cards (over the next 9 months) and you could receive a $100 Shirt Punch gift card. Learn more here. I have to remember not to toss the card!

Dorbz Guardians of the Galaxy Starlord Vinyl Collectible ($7)
Can you believe I haven't seen Guardians of the Galaxy? I have no idea who this character is! Subscribers received either Starlord or Groot.

Harry Potter Gryffindor Crest Bookmark ($9)
I would like to think I would be sorted into Gryffindor House, but you know, sometimes I'm just not sure. I was in London last fall and visited the Harry Potter display at King's Cross Station. I came so close to buying a wand (or letting the wand choose me). I kick myself for passing it up. Hopefully this little bookmark will fill the void.

Tobin's Spirit Guide: Official Ghostbusters Edition (Nerd Block Exclusive ~$10) 
From the Amazon description:
This dynamic in-universe book takes fans inside the world of Ghostbusters like never before. In the first Ghostbusters movie, Tobin’s Spirit Guide is a comprehensive supernatural encyclopedia used by our heroes to research ghouls and ghosts. For the first time, this fully illustrated tome will allow fans to pore through the pages of this legendary guide to learn all about the things that go bump in the night—from Class 5 Free-Roaming Vapors to giant Sloars! 
The hard-cover edition will be released on July 1st (click here to pre-order). This soft cover version is a Nerd Block exclusive! 

Goonies Rolled Map (Nerd Block Exclusive) 
This map is printed on vinyl and has a faux-leather tie. It would look pretty cool framed as an art piece! I wonder if I could take this with me on my next trip to Oregon and try to find the treasure hidden in Astoria (kidding)!

Shire Post Mint Game of Thrones Daenerys Targaryen Copper of Meereen Coin ($7.50)
This is listed as a Nerd Block exclusive, but it's actually part of a 4-coin set. Check the detail of the coin here and check out the entire Game of Thrones collection here. I received a Targaryen coin, while other subscribers received Lannister or Stark (I'm not sure if there were other variations).

The June Nerd Block Classic contained six products, valued over $54 US. This box costs $28.74 US for Canadians. In addition, the box also included a $10 credit for Shirt Punch. I already redeemed my credit and picked up a cool Game of Thrones shirt for my boyfriend (It ended up costing $17 US with tax and shipping).

Looking for a spoiler for July?

Every Nerd Block Classic will have a "psychotic exclusive" from Suicide Squad.

There will also be items from Transformers and Attack on Titan.
Order before July 15th to receive the July box. Boxes ship between July 15th and July 20th. Interested in trying Nerd Block? Use promo code SAVE15 to get 15% off your first block.
