Welcome Block Review

With the announced theme for September’s upcoming Nerd Block being Star Wars I decided this was a good time to try it out. Currently any new customers or any current subscribers who add a different block receive a free “Welcome Block” (one per customer). The Welcome Block is a smaller version of their mystery boxes and contains a variety of items from past blocks as a sampling of the kind of things they offer. They quote its worth at $20. Let’s see what came in mine:

Five items in here, which seems pretty good for a welcome gift to me. The big thing I got was a vinyl Doctor Who figure of the Tenth Doctor. Never got into that fandom, but it looks nice and I have plenty of friends who are. Guardians of the Galaxy on the other hand is one of my current obsessions, so the Groot magnet was an awesome find. I don’t have a device that will get use out of the mini joystick for touchscreens, but it’s existence amuses me.

From what I understand Cliccors have been included a few times in past blocks, but this is my first time receiving them. It’s a cute little toy that’s fun to play around with. I have however gotten a mystery pack of nommies in a past Arcade Block. As before, cute for what they are. My nephew and niece will be pleased I have a few more for their collection.

Conclusion

Not bad at all, particularly for free. A nice bit of extra incentive for anyone on thinking about trying out one of the Nerd Block line of mystery boxes.
