January is here and Nerd Block is kicking their year off with the “Neverending Stories” theme. Obviously this box is said to contain a Neverending Story item but also several other fantasy themed items such as Game of Thrones and the Hobbit. I was very excited for this box because those are some of my favorite franchises… so let’s quit talking and start some video watching:
…so what did you think? Here are the photos so you can see everything better…
Harry Potter Film Cell Bookmark
This is very similar to the bookmarks that came in the Hero Crate boxes last month. I wouldn’t doubt that they are made by the same manufacturer. The image in my film cell is that of Harry Potter but I cant make out the exact scene because it is just him in the frame. I actually traded this off in exchange for another item from the box which I normally wouldn’t do until after my month end review but I made an exception in this case.
The Hobbit Bag End Print
This is a nice quality print on thick cardstock. It is a very good depiction of Bag End from the Hobbit and the Tolkien fan in me absolutely loves it! I’ve said it a million times and I’ll say it a million more… if only I had more wall space I would frame and hang this.
Harry Potter Hogwarts Crest Keychain
Yes that is a second Harry Potter item in this month’s box. This keychain is really nice looking and displays well inside the box. I really have no need for any keychains though and if you follow me regularly you know that I don’t use them.
Your Neverending Story Notebook
This is just a plain notebook inside but the quality of the item is amazing. With a faux leather binding and even a little attached ribbon bookmark makes this look very authentic. Of course it’s a fraction of the size of the movie book but ya know… cant have everything I guess lol.
Game of Thrones Legacy Figure
You could have received one of several different figures in this month’s box. I got The Hound which is one of my favorite ..although very dead …characters. I traded my HP bookmark for a Tyrion figure as I mentioned earlier which I didn’t feel was an even trade so I added a few extras in there to make up for it. That’s how I roll… the honest Nerf Herder lol.
Harry Potter Deathly Hallows T Shirt
Yes that makes 3 Harry Potter items in this month’s box. I like HP as much as the next guy but I’m no super fan so to me this was a bit excessive. The shirt design is cool though and it is definitely something I would wear so no complaints there.
…and that was the Nerd Block “Neverending Stories” box for January 2016. They did a decent job as always but they could have switched out one or two Harry Potter items for some other fandom.
