by xdustineflxon 11/08/2017
Hey, everyone (all zero of you). I’m back with another review in the Firefly Cargo Crate series. This time, the theme is “Going Mad”, with a focus on Serenity’s resident doctor, Simon Tam. As always, let’s take care of the sticker first.   Londinium, as you can see by the sticker, is the capital of […]

Denver Comic-Con 2017, Part 1: Celebrities

by xdustineflxon 08/08/2017
At the beginning of July, I attended the 6th annual Denver Comic-Con, along with my wife and daughter. We have attended every year since its inception, and it’s the one event in the area we do not miss every year. Tons of celebrities, cosplay, booths, artists, merchandise and more spread across three days of fun. […]

Firefly Cargo Crate 008: No Power in the ‘Verse

by xdustineflxon 06/06/2017
I’m back with another review for the oh-so-good Firefly Cargo Crate series. As I said last month, this month’s theme is “No Power in the ‘Verse”, dedicated to River Tam. River is one of the best sci-fi characters ever created (in my opinion, at least), so I’m looking forward to what’s in store this time […]

Nerd Block Classic: April 2017

by xdustineflxon 10/05/2017
I decided, after the last couple months, that I was going to cancel this subscriptions. The last few boxes have been very disappointing and, to be honest, I didn’t even want this one. However, I didn’t cancel in time, so I was charged for one final box, the theme being “Dressed to Kill”. I’m not […]

Alright, I’m back with the latest edition of the Firefly Cargo Crate from Loot Crate and Quantum Mechanix. This time, the theme is “The Worthier Part”, dedicated to everyone’s favourite preacher-man, Shepher Derrial Book (played by the late, great Ron Glass. We miss you, Ron.).

Nerd Block Classic: March 2017

by xdustineflxon 23/03/2017
Okay, if you were with me last month (and chances are, you weren’t), you know I was disappointed with the box on a whole. This month, the theme is “Team-Up”, which sounds like it has potential. Can Nerd Block bounce back after the blunder? Let’s find out. The first franchise this month is the Power Rangers.  […]

Another month is nearly at an end, which means it’s time for another Nerd Block review. This month’s theme is “Time Travel”, one of my favourite sci-fi concepts, so here’s hoping for some good items. Let’s take a look. There are six total items in this month’s box. Up first is what is usually the […]
