We’ve written before about Nerd Block, the subscription service that lets nerds around the world sign up to receive monthly boxes of ‘epic geek gear.’ The boxes, which cost $19.99 per month, each contain a nerd-themed T-shirt, as well as five to six delightfully dorky items from brands like Disney, Marvel and Star Wars.
This month, Nerd Block sent us a box of our own, so we could experience first-hand how truly liberating it is to not have to go out and track down our own Star Wars shirts.
Our box contained some true relics of nerddom, including an Assassin’s Creed action figure, some jokey stickers that poke fun at food packaging, and a small figurine from a brand called “Skele-Treks,” which re-imagines classic Star Trek characters as skeletons. Hey, why not?
“But don’t nerds enjoy the challenge of having to track down those collectibles on their own?” one of our coworkers asked as we opened the box at our desk. We suppose she had a point, but we must say, it was certainly exhilarating to receive a big package, pry it open and explore its mystery contents one by one.
And besides, getting your geek gear delivered in a monthly box is really convenient. Who has time to go track down a limited edition light saber when you’ve got a World of Warcraft raid to coordinate?
Check out this slideshow of all the
cool unabashedly un-cool stuff that we got in our box from Nerd Block.
