December 2015 marks the second box from Nerd Block’s latest expansion box: the Sci-Fi Block. November’s box was pretty decent so I thought I would keep the subscription going and see how it pans out. Unlike Nerd Block, Sci-Fi Block doesn’t run a monthly theme …at least as of yet… so it’s up to the hints and teasers to get an idea of what to expect. So let’s jump right into the unboxing and we will meet up for photos after…
…alright you’re back! Ok so you didn’t really go anywhere and may have skipped the video altogether but I have to put some filler stuff to make the transition right? Here’s the pics…
Star Wars Helmet Art Prints
As you can see there were 3 prints on a nice heavy cardstock of half-helmets from Star Wars. I think they’re very well done and if I’m not mistaken they’re from Nerd Block’s own resident artist who has made several similar “half-head” prints for various other characters. They are simple black & white but the detail and likeness is very professional and quite good. I’d really love to frame them if I only had the wall space!
SciFi Block Keychain
A keychain so cool it gets it’s own hashtag! Yes right across the bottom there it’s #scifiblockkeychain. Ok so I’m not exactly sure why there needed to be a hashtag on a keychain item but it is kinda cool I guess… for a keychain. It looks like a classic ray gun or maybe the alien blaster from the Fallout series… in the Classic Block they did the same thing only with a Han Solo blaster look. I don’t like to load up on keychains because it just becomes a big lump in my pocket but I know there are others with more trinkets than keys in the world.
X Files Patch
If you know me at all… I don’t like getting patches. I don’t use them, they’re difficult to display, and ultimately they just wind up in a box somewhere collecting dust. I’m not sure how true to life this X Files patch is… like is it a prop replica or just made to look like it could be. Either way it’s not the X Files item for me.
Star Trek Tribble Screen Cleaner
If I’m not mistaken this is supposed to be a micro-fiber screen cleaner but I think it is SO much cooler as a Christmas ornament! It’s the perfect size and even has a loop on top to hang it… so call it what you want… in my house it goes on the tree!
Firefly Malcolm Reynolds Funko Pop
This combines two of my favorite things: Firefly and Funko Pops! This is too awesome but I still need a few more of the characters so themse boxes better get with it and send me the complete set already lol.
First Order Stormtrooper Shirt
It could be just a regular trooper helmet or it could be Captain Phasma …it is unknown which it’s actually supposed to be. I suppose you get to decide for yourself… personally I think it’s just a Stormtrooper. I really like the design and it does coordinate with the shirt design in the classic Nerd Block from this month as well.
…and that was the Sci-Fi Block for December 2015. Overall I am very pleased with what was included in this month’s box: Star Wars, Star Trek, and Firefly are tops in my opinion! As it stands I have no plans on getting rid of this box as long as they keep a good selection each month. Much like the other “Blocks”, Sci-Fi Block runs $30/month shipped and is usually one of the first boxes to arrive.
