When they rumored a Gremlins item this is exactly what I wanted, a nearly life size exact replica of Gizmo, I watch Gremlins every year in my Christmas movie list and having my own Mogwai is sweet indeed!

Being a former Dungeons and Dragons player (and current Neverwinter MMO player) this D&D item came very well received and will sit by my gaming PC proudly.

A Tetris notebook with block dividers is interesting, and cool for the anniversary of that classic game.

For the holiday season a bonus shirt came included, first up is a Harry Potter Butter Beer Pub Crawl shirt, nice design and color and second was an Anime themed shirt depicting a white wolf and the saying “The Battle is Coming” Now I don’t know the anime this represents honestly? If anyone does you might comment below just so I don’t wonder forever. ūüôā

Last be far from least is this, a certified Print from the classic fantasy 80’s movie Willow, both Warwick Davis of Willow/Lepracaun/Harry Potter fame and Val Kilmer of Willow/The Saint/ Batman Forever fame signed copies,I received a Val Kilmer, I’m not a “oh boy I got an autograph” type but it’s very cool since I have seen the movie many many times growing up.

That’s all for the Nerdy Blocky fun this time, nice stuff and good end to the year, Let’s wait and hope 2015 gets even more Nerdy!!

A Simpsons ¬†item came in the crate, a wallet depicting nearly every character in the series, as the immortal Bart Simpson would say “Aye Carumba man!”

My Nerdy Christmas items for 2014!!

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Greetings and Salutations In 2015!!! As my first blog post after a bit of a holiday season break I thought i’d share some of the more fun items I got for Christmas, I got many stocking/clothing items that i needed which is good then the items you see here just for fun.

First up I got The complete series of Firefly, a ¬†low run sci-fi western-ish show high on the cult following and under appreciated for the writing honestly, one of Joss Whedon’s¬†best series in my opinion.

With that is the Movie Serenity, a sorta retelling and wrapping up of sorts to Firefly, obviously higher budget but same quirky comedy and excellent writing, great as a Firefly companion or standalone movie honestly.

Next up is the first of 2 Xbox 360 games that giving my gaming schedule will take me a year to beat lol is Assassins Creed 4: Black Flag, Among the AC titles this one is a full on Pirate themed adventure, kinda a Pirates of the Caribbean meets Jason Bourne…sorta,very fun and as usual excellent on graphics and sounds.

Second in the gaming department is Shadow of Mordor, a Lord of the Rings parallel story featuring locations from the books/movies as well as familiar characters like Gollum. A similar stealth mechanic as Assassins Creed games mixed with similar fighting engines found in games like the Batman Arkham series filled with tons of quests,side quests, and collectibles. If you’re a LOTR fan or stealth/action combat games it’s a definite buy in my opinion.

Recently I began getting Funko bobbleheads in Lootcrate and Nerdblock boxes so getting 2¬†Jack Skellington bobbleheads of different types was cool indeed, a huge fan of The Nightmare before Christmas they will sit beside my gaming pc gladly with the others i’ve gotten.

Well that’s it for the nerdy side of Christmas, I hope yours was as fun and nerdy as well, take care all!

Z reviews the October 2014 Nerd Block! Snooches!

Hey all, Z ¬†here with October’s Nerd Block Subscription box review and I have to say it was totally worth it. Not only were there great items but this month’s box was personally created by the one and only Kevin Smith!!

Now if your living in a cave, under a rock, or just not hipster enough to know who I am talking about Mr. Smith is a Movie writer/actor/director as well as a voice over actor and comic book writer. He will also be in the Newest Lego Batman video game playing the voice of..who else..Kevin Smith.

As big of a fan of both Marvel and DC comics (and having worked for both) this month’s box theme was COLLIDE: Marvel vs. DC and a good assortment was representing both companies as well as a couple Kevin Smith specific items.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

First up was the shirt this month featuring Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes Characters Jay and Silent Bob dressed as the Dynamic Duo-ish lol Very nice shirt that surprised me as I’d never seen this one before anywhere really.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Next is a true Marvel V. DC item, POW! Brand Buttons featuring Spider-Man and Wolverine against Batman and Superman, which I find hilarious given the pending Bats vs Supes movie looming and the fact that Spidey kinda replaced the recently deceased Wolvie in the comics.

Next up was the promised OfficialAvengers Movie prop replica and I sort’ve had guessed it would be this or something else small like a shield pin but it’s the Captain America Trading cards that Marvel’s Agent’s of Shield Coulson had in the movie and subsequently “died” spilling blood on them. They came with a certificate of Authenticity card in the back of the deck as well.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

For the DC side is this Arkham Asylum Patients Notes notebook, inside are even post-its and colored post-it tabs for marking certain notes by color code, pretty cool being a huge fan of the Arkham video game series.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Back over to Marvel is my 2nd ever POP! Marvel figure, Maskless Deadpool this time, so he can now sit next to my Groot figure and have very…odd…conversations together…very odd.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Another Kevin Smith themed item is these various stickers featuring such things as Lego Jay and Silent Bob, Super Jay and Silent Bob Bros., and of course some references to Smith’s newest movie Tusk with Walrus imagery.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Finally this month while not with the theme but still..it’s ZELDA related is a Mascot Dangler charm. I got the princess one but still, anything Zelda is alright in this Nerd/Geek’s view.

Overall one of the best boxes I’ve gotten since trying these sub boxes, let’s hoping it keeps up in the future!
