bttf tee
Back to the Future 88MPH Tee
by Shirt Punch, exclusively for Nerd Block
approximately $10
This is an okay tee for a great movie. Personally I would have liked something more innovative. I can’t find this particular tee online. Here’s one on Amazon that includes 88MPH. This one is more of a cosplay style. It actually has Marty’s shirt and vest printed on it. Now I would have LOVED something like this! BTTF tees seem to retail online for about $10-20. This actual shirt was made exclusively for Nerd Block from Shirt Punch. Shirt Punch is a site that has a tee for a limited amount of time. Tees on there go for $10.

kevin smith book
Tough Shit: Life Advice from a Fat, Lazy Slob Who Did Good (paperback book)
by Kevin Smith
retail $13.49
I love Kevin Smith, but I have a huge stack of books to read. Hopefully this will be entertaining when I actually get around to reading it. IMHO-Books shouldn’t be a main item in a crate because it’s been my experience that they have the lowest resale value right after you buy one, even if it’s brand new. For instance, you can buy this used for 15 cents right now on Amazon. Why do I mention resale? I will resell items that I don’t want.

ecto 1
Ghostbusters Ecto-1 Car
by Titan(s) Vinyl Figures exclusively for Nerd Block
approximately $20
This is exclusive to Nerd Block. I immediately resold on eBay for $10, because it’s not my style. It would probably have a projected retail price of around $20. This is the Funko that I refer to in the video. If I had received this, it would be proudly displayed in my home right now.

pacman mug
Pac-Man Heat Changing Mug
by Paladone Products
$10.99
This mug sells for $10.99 on Amazon. The design changes with heat, which is cool, but I most likely would not pay over $5 for it.

nerd block cards
Nerd Play Cosplayer Playing Cards
by Nerd Block
approximately $1
I’m being generous at estimating these at any type of price point as I think they are a ridiculous product.

Actual Price
almost $30

Approximate Retail Value
$55.48

This box did not live up to my expectations. It proves that even if the items are technically worth an adequate amount, if they are not worth it to you, then it’s a waste of money.

loot 3

I can’t/won’t? estimate the cardboard game box. The total of the rest of it is definitely higher than I thought when I recorded the video. I’d never pay that much for a poster. It’s a cool design though and the tee version is a decent price. Plus I wasn’t familiar with the pricing of the toys. This is definitely a fun collection that I’d recommend.
