The sneak peek for May said we would see products from Ghostbusters, Sixteen Candles, and Back to the Future. The theme is "80's Takeover"!

The product card shows that three products from the May box are Nerd Block exclusives!

Funko POP Movies: Sixteen Candles - Long Duck Dong ($11.99)
Sixteen Candles is one of my all-time favourite movies. Actually, any John Hughes movie from the 80's get two thumbs up from me. I wish I had received a Jake Ryan figure, but Long Duck Dong is okay too.

Marvel 6oz Ceramic Molded Mug - Captain America (~$5)
This Captain America molded mug is tiny and adorable.

Etch A Sketch Sticky Notes ($5)
I never had an Etch A Sketch as a kid, but I sure played with enough of them. These sticky notes are retro and fun.

Monster Factory Stay Puft Marshmallow Man (Exclusive Item, ~$12.95)
This is an exclusive Nerd Block item and it comes just ahead of the release of the Ghostbusters remake (due out mid-July). Similar sized stuffies go for $12.95 on the Monster Factory website.

Nerd Block Back to the Future Plate Pin (Exclusive Item)
This is another Nerd Block exclusive. It's a subtle way to let time travelers know that you too are from the 80's. My favorite was always Back to the Future Part III. I liked the wild west theme.

Shirt Punch Rick & Morty T-Shirt (Exclusive Item, $20 value)
Call me crazy, but I'd never heard of Rick & Morty until I received this t-shirt. According to Wikipedia, Rick and Morty is an American adult animated science fiction sitcom that follows the misadventures of alcoholic scientist Rick and his easily influenced grandson Morty, who split their time between domestic family life and interdimensional travel.

The May Nerd Block included five products, valued over $55. This box costs $28.75 US for Canadians, including shipping. The "80's Takeover" theme was pretty cool, especially the nod to John Hughes and Sixteen Candles!

Interested in a sneak peek? The June Block will include products from Ghostbusters, Harry Potter, Goonies, and more. I can't wait!

Order before June 15th to receive the June box. Boxes ship between June 15th and June 20th. Interested in trying Nerd Block? Use promo code SAVE15 to get 15% off your first block.
