Nerd Block Classic June 2015 Unboxing – Oh It’s So British

Beatlemania may have started the British invasion with irresistible music, but since then, folks across the pond have expanded their grasp on even larger swaths of the pop culture landscape. And, yes, nerds have fallen prey to their wiles, too, as evidenced by this month’s British Invasion Nerd Block Classic.

To the unfamiliar, Nerd Block Classic is a monthly subscription package containing nerd-related stuff that’s curated according to a theme. The theme varies from month to month, with this month’s box containing items from across the pond.

What did we get from the box? We got stuff from Doctor Who, Mr. Bean, Sherlock, and Monty Python. For Whovians, there’s a 4.5-inch vinyl figurine of the bespectacled 10th Doctor (with a detachable Sonic Screwdriver), along with an art print featuring three of the series’ nastiest villains, namely a Weeping Angel, The Silence, and one of the Cybermen. It’s important to note that the art print is in green, which, we think, is a limited edition (it’s supposed to be blue). Rowan Atkinson’s minions can enjoy a Bendable Mr. Bean figure (seriously, you can make it do gymnastics and stuff) and a slightly smaller version of Mr. Bean’s teddy that you can cuddle with at night. Monty Python fans get a set of fridge magnets filled with words that you can mix up to write on-fridge poetry, while this month’s shirt is a Sherlock-inspired tee with BORED emblazoned in all caps.

So, that’s two character figures, one doll, a set of fridge magnets, an art print, and a nice tee, all for $19.99. Definitely not a bad deal. You can order the next Nerd Block Classic directly from their website.

    I love nerd-block! Their boxes are so cool, and it’s always exciting to explore the different products and themes each month. This is a neat British theme, and i like the touch they added by the various nicknacks and gadgets. Its so cool that often you get clothing, like a t-shirt, and it shows you that the makers and supporters of this product service are old-school, since they commonly include products from shows like Dr. Who! Check out Mr. Bean! So sweet. Theres a lot of cool stuff for your computer-desk area, and even neat posters a lot of the time to hang up. It’s nice too because they commonly include books–kind of a rarity for most people now a days due to technology. Nothing wrong with promoting a little reading–keep it up!
