Unboxing: Arcade Block [January 2016]

Arcade Block finally made its appearance on our doorstep on Monday.  Its not too late so that’s good! We’re nearing the end of our subscription.  I think the next one is the last one.  We are debating whether to keep subscribing or not. Next unboxing, I’ll probably give an update on what we decide to do.  That aside, these Arcade Blocks have been rather awesome and really makes our day.

Let’s open it up, shall we? 😉

Arcade Block [January 2016]

Puzzle Cube (Exclusive item)

Arcade Block

Anyone like to figure out Rubik’s Cube? I used to when I was young but nowadays, its not a frequent thing I do.  However, this puzzle cube is cute as a button with all 6 sides with different gaming icons. I love it! 🙂 Although its also the reason why I wouldn’t mess it up and rely on myself to put it back together.

Morph Ball Stress Reliever(Exclusive item)

I’ve previously mentioned that we’ve gotten a lot of stress ball-like sort of nerd gear.  Some of them are just hanging out on shelves and bookcases as decor.  This one is legitimately a useful stress ball.  I’m thinking of moving it into the basement with as a stress reliever when I’m raging over how I can’t pass a level in some platformer like Rayman or my most rage-worthy game, Trials Fusion. Maybe it’ll help me not want to toss the controller at the TV because I can never figure out how to do a bunny hop…

Portal-Safety First Tin Sign

This is completely laugh out loud! I just love it! I’m still deciding where to put this! 😉  Where seems the most suitable?

Trainer Beanie

I’m not sure exactly who will wear this.  We’re not Pokemon fans.  Digimon was a thousand million times better to me. And we’re both not exactly beanie types.  I have a winter beanie hat but its warm and adorable so I love it.  Maybe I can use this to shovel snow on our next snowstorm 😉

Mortal Kombat X Bobblehead: Scorpion

I haven’t had the chance to play Mortal Kombat X yet but I’ve seen tons of gameplay videos on it and it looks great.  Scorpion is a classic character and its absolutely suitable that he’s the one we get in this block.  I’ve creatively opened up a new spot to put the figures 😉

Street Fighter V T-Shirt (Exclusive item)

If you’ve seen the Want to Play It Now post that I did with David over at That Moment In, you’ll know that while I’m not a really great combat game sort of person, Street Fighter is absolutely fantastic. Its a classic and I’m excited about Street Fighter V. This is a super cool T-Shirt with artwork from Stanley Lau (ArtGerm).  Some boxes got the Ken T-Shirt.  We got Ryu and well, I’m perfectly fine with it! 🙂


January 2016’s Arcade Block was fantastic.  I’ve ordered the Arcade Block for a year, guys! I started last year in January!  This box was fantastic.  It hits a lot of games that we love a lot and I can see use for most of it and that is just great! Arcade Block still keeps its high quality/value.  Loving it! 🙂

*There should be another unboxing for something completely different soon.  I’m just waiting for it to arrive*
