The subscription box addiction continues! There was actually a 50% off discount code during Boxing Day, so J ordered the Sci-Fi Block over from the folks at Nerd Block. Since Nerd Block is based in Canada, this box arrived a lot faster than all the previous subscription boxes we had ordered.
There was not specific theme for the January 2016 Sci-Fi Block, but they did say that there was going to be goodies from The Terminator, Dr. Who and The Matrix.
The first thing we pulled out of the box was a Funko Pop vinyl from The Matrix, featuring Agent Smith! This is an older one, but it's always fun to get a Funko Pop and makes the box worth more, since Pops tend to go for $10 and up in Canada.
Next was a black t-shirt with a schematic of a Tardis from Dr. Who. I love schematic designs.
There was a Iron Giant 4 button set. The Iron Giant is an animated cult classic from the 90's and has some big names narrating including Jennifer Aniston, Harry Connick Jr. and Vin Diesel. I remember watching this movie as a kid, and I think it's time for a re-watch.
Some filler items were Dr. Who stickers. There was an entire sheet as well as an individual decal that had a few variations.
Another Funko item! A T800 Endoskeleton Funko ReAction figure from The Terminator. I'm not sure of the popularity of ReAction figures - it seems like a lot of subscription boxes have been using them as filler lately. This one is pretty neat though (scary looking!).
There was a blind bag included, which I love. This one was a Star Trek Skele-Trek, which is an odd combination. I guess people really like skeletons and zombies. We got Data (I think? It's hard to tell...) but the neck part looks like it was bent, so he is hunched over.
Here's all the goodies in the January 2016 Sci-Fi Block:
The Sci-Fi Block starts at $19.99 USD month to month, plus shipping and HST. The February subscriptions are open now and it sounds like another neat box - the items included something from Star Wars, Alien and The Guardians of the Galaxy. Keep in mind our dropping Canadian dollar before you subscribe though!
