Unboxing: Nerd Block June 2015 [British Invasion]

Maybe this didn’t surprise you but it sure surprised me when I walked through the door and saw this month’s Nerd Block sitting on my counter. I knew that I didn’t order it so I went to investigate.

Apparently, I’m really stupid and didn’t realize that when you order one month, it becomes recurring charge so I ended up having a payment go through for June and not realized until I got the box.  Well, that’s also because I didn’t get a payment confirmation from Nerd Block either or delivery notice which is all feeling a little weird because then I can’t even back out or know that it was a mistake.  Still, its here and I just hope that it’ll be as fulfilling to make me not regret especially when I’ve been trying to cut expenses after vacation.

Still, British Invasion is a good theme so let’s check it out! 🙂

Nerd Block [June 2015 British Invasion]

 Mr. Bean Teddy

Nerd Block

Mr. Bean is the staple of British humor or any humor.  Other than Stephen Chow for me in Hong Kong movies that made me laugh, I remember Mr. Bean being a constant in our house when I was younger.  My parents and I would sit around watching Mr. Bean whenever it was on TV. And his Teddy? That’s awesome! Just so awesome! 🙂

Doctor Who Titan Figure

Nerd Block

Maybe I shouldn’t confess it because I’ll get a lot of crap about it.  But maybe I already did last year when I posted about Comic-con.  So…I’ve never seen any Doctor Who.  Its probably a bad thing and I should ASAP.  But, I haven’t yet.  But while that is a fact, this vinyl figure looks really awesome.  Who plays the 10th Doctor Who, BTW? Anyone can help me with that?

Monty Magnets

Nerd Block

I can’t remember seeing the entire Monty Python and the Holy Grail movie.  At least I knew what it was, right? Who doesn’t need magnets, right? 😉

Whovian Art Print

Nerd Block

Sorry for the weird background leaking into this picture, especially on the top.  I was watching a Let’s Play video on Youtube when I decided to do the unboxing and propping it up on the screen was the best way to reduce glare from the light.  As previously mentioned, I know nothing about Dr. Who but this poster/art print looks absolutely fantastic, don’t you think?

Mr. Bean Bendable

Nerd Block

So okay, I love Mr. Bean and I do love toys, except I can’t quite figure out what to do with this.   But then, I guess this one could go in the display case if it stands up on its own…I’ll have to investigate it a little further.

Bored T-Shirt

Nerd Block

The card says this is from Sherlock Holmes and that was my initial thought.  I just love the T-shirts.  This one looks awesome!!

Overall, British Invasion was pretty good.  It was very Doctor Who dominant and I’m not very familiar with it but the items for that was quite good.  Mr. Bean stuff is always great.  The T-shirt just wins it completely for me 🙂 Loving it!

Due to financial situation, I’ve made sure to stop Nerd Block for next month.  Arcade Block should be in the mail soon so more unboxing posts coming up soon 🙂 If you enjoy these posts, remember to drop by again!!

What did you think this month’s Nerd Block? Any item peak your interest?

Arcade Block: February Unboxing!

Welcome to another Arcade Block unboxing! No video this time (but I promise I will have one for the next one).

I actually received my Arcade Block back at my own place (which I STILL haven’t moved into) on Monday.  After I managed to hurt my knee bad enough to not walk from helping assemble an IKEA dresser on Sunday, I finally managed to move with much less pain after 4 days.  Yay! Which also means, I can now drive over and open it with my boyfriend. Double YAY!

(Sidenote: You never realize how amazing walking is until something hinders it. Cherishing life moment)

If you’re a Zelda fan, you may envy me…just saying 😉

I haven’t played much Zelda but I intend to when I save up for the 3DS that I hopefully will purchase later this year. Thats the goal at least.

Enough rambling! Lets check out the February 2015 Arcade Block!

1) Link Plushie!

2) Sonic the Hedgehog Buildable Figures

And after we open it…

Arcade Block February 2015

Shadow the Hedgehog

So far so good, going right into my display cabinet, not on the My Little Pony level though 😉

3) Starfox Coffee Mug!

Arcade Block February 2015

Starfox Coffee

If there’s anything we have a lot of at our place, its mugs.  But you know what? I like this one a lot! I know nothing about Starfox but its a fox and I like foxes.  Thinking about all these mugs, I should have a mega tea party..haha! Okay, writing posts at 1am apparently makes me say silly things…and have weird ideas.

4) Zelda Map Mousepad

Arcade Block February 2015

I know this map has a name for the place, but I can’t remember it without the info card.  Thats how much I lack knowledge of Zelda. I will use this though.  It sure beats my pile of paper.

5) Pacman Keychain (and it makes the chomping sound!)

Arcade Block February 2015

I’m geeking out over this.  You know that high pitched voice that I made for the Tetris notebook in the last unboxing video.  Yeah, thats how I was reacting to this one 🙂 I like these retro arcade games: Tetris and Pacman being my fave.

6) Zelda T-shirt!

Arcade Block February 2015

Apparently these Zelda products are from different games.  I knew this looked familiar but I have to confess that I had to do a little research to figure out whether this was actually Zelda.  This shirt is totally cool.  Arcade Block shirts are for my boyfriend so I’m sure he’ll enjoy wearing this one.

And thats it, my lovelies! A recap of everything down below.

Arcade Block February 2015

I have to admit that these Arcade Blocks are rather fun.  From the videos of some other surprises boxes that I haven’t subscribed to, these are really hit and miss but so far, I’m relatively impressed.  The boyfriend read somewhere that next month has two T-shirts? Wonder if thats true because those shirts probably take up about 50% of the reason I’d renew my subscription, even if I don’t wear it.

What do you think? Are you a Zelda fan? Have you ever (or are you) subscribed to any of these mystery surprise box thingies? 

Happy Friday, my lovelies! 🙂

1UP Box: February Unboxing! :)

We’re back with another unboxing!

Last time, I posted a video of the January unboxing of Arcade Block. It had a ton of cute and fun goodies and they are now placed around my house and whatnot.  While I really wanted to check out the Arcade Block, I was desperately waiting for the 1UP box to be available for shipping in Canada.

I’m new to this funky surprise box business and what I’ve learned is that they only started in September 2014 so I’m pretty glad that I signed up in late December and go the notice a few weeks ago that they had shipping to Canada starting with their February box.  1UP box is one of the more economical surprise box choices especially if you’re in the US. Canada subscription includes shipping so the higher price makes sense to me.

Long story cut short (not really) Signed up and got the box on Friday.

1up box February 2015

We’ve been in a snowstorm and whatnot for the last few days so I didn’t end up going to grab my package and open it with my boyfriend.  Earlier this afternoon, we did do it.  Unlike last time, we decided to do snapshots of the items instead.  We’ll probably fluctuate between snapshots and videos.

I’m talking too much! Here it is! By the way, February’s theme was Apocalypse!

Here we go! February’s 1UP Box! I haven’t gotten into The Walking Dead hype so my boyfriend was more of the connoisseur here.  But, I love Mario related stuff so yay the Mushroom! February was Apocalypse theme.  I wonder what March’s theme will be…

As usual, it was really fun! Maybe you can tell me if you’d prefer the unboxing in a video instead. You know, vlog style? I’m going to keep doing these because I personally find it pretty fun and refreshing.  Its a change of pace.

I’m going to end this here. Time to get ready to gear up for sitting in front of the TV for Oscars.

Hope you all had a lovely weekend! Stay awesome! 🙂
