Last month I subscribed to the whole NerdBlock thingumybob.
Each month they send you out a box with semi-random geeky content, including a TShirt of your chosen size (Selected when subscribing) and a few silly model/shelfy things..

Since they take the payment a whole frickin' month in advance, you're left waiting bloody ages for your first parcel to arrive.
I subscribed early-May, they took £20 out of my account on the 15th of May, they sent out my first NerdBlock around about the 15th June, and it finally arrived today... Over a month later!
Geeze!!

Was it worth it?

If you're expecting your own NerdBlock, don't click the spoiler, because it's a spoiler!!

UK vs US Size
Ordered a Large size T-Shirt, but I think American-Large is slightly larger than UK-Large. .. TShirt's a teensy bit big, but the sort of big that I don't mind, so I'll probably stick with this size. (You can change your size, at any time, on the website)
But if you plan on ordering, and prefer a tighter fitting TShirt, probably better off going for the size smaller than you're used to instead.

That's pretty damn good for £20!

Better than the ones Ashen's has been receiving.

Did you cancel your subscription Jay?

Did you ever receive other boxes? Were they as good?

Lovely getting a new random TShirt each month, and the tat is filling my shelves, nicely

I'll post this month's later. Haven't taken big HD shots of it, since... Honestly, my room's a mess, and my phone's charger hasn't been plugged in for a good number of days!!!

Some really nice stuff there

What are those Doctor Who things? Comics/DVDs/Postcards?

What are those two mini-figs next to the Comic-Con mag? I can't really work them out. Are they super-hero related?

The ComicCon "mag" is a DVD all about ComicCon . Unwatched due to .. Why would I!!?
The minifigs are Stan Lee and Harry "Ain't it Cool" guy...
They're both just the right size to sit among my arcade cabinets!

The two Who-things are the first issues of the two comic series.
I'll be honest, I haven't read either, mostly because I'm not a fan of American comics.. I prefer a good old Beano/Dandy/Wizzer&Chips, myself, as they're usually chock full of odd tidbits. American comics are "here is a picture with some words", whereas UK ones are much more humerous and full of little details and things.

Next month : I've signed up for the new Arcade Block, too, so hopefully that'll be a bit more gamey, each month.

Not a bad haul there. Could the mini-fig be some sort of Conan or Game Of Thrones character?

As for Willow, it's showing its age (especially the transformation effects), but it's an excellent film. And Val Kilmer - yeah, I agree he's a bit shit but to be fair he doesn't stink up Willow.

And Gizmo. Gotta luv the Giz!

Nice haul. I am actually a big fan of Val Kilmer, so I am quite envious of your haul this month.
