Nerd Block Classic: February 2017

by xdustineflxon 28/02/2017
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 […]

Firefly Cargo Crate 006: YoSaffBridge

by xdustineflxon 01/02/2017
For the first time since Loot Crate and QMx started doing these, this month’s Firefly Cargo Crate is actually themed after a supporting character from the show instead of one of the main cast. And, they’ve got a crowd favourite, that being YoSaffBridge (a mash-up of her three aliases, Yolanda, Saffron and Bridgette), most commonly known as […]

Nerd Block Classic: January 2017

by xdustineflxon 20/01/2017
As mentioned last month, the them for the first Nerd Block Classic for 2017 is “Stark Industries”, with items based on Tony Stark/Iron Man. Should hopefully be a good box with that kind of theme, so let’s take a look. Item number one: a lapel pin. Designed to (obviously) look like the Arc Reactor, this […]

Like discovering new music? Like supporting upcoming bands and record labels? Get ready then, because Alive & Kicking, the upcoming release from Montreal-based Dany Laj and the Looks is set to release on February 17th.

Firefly Cargo Crate 005: Serenity

by xdustineflxon 09/12/2016
This is the fifth box in the Firefly Cargo Crate series, and this time, it’s dedicated to the ship herself, Serenity. Essentially the tenth member of the crew (and probably even more iconic), it’s fitting she’d get her own box. I’m excited to see what Loot Crate and QMx have put together this time around, […]

Nerd Block Classic: November 2016

by xdustineflxon 29/11/2016
Another month, another dive into Nerd Block Classic. You know, I’m running out of ways to do introductions for these articles. Oh, well. On with the review. First item in the box is a 2017 calendar. A Lord of the Rings/The Hobbit calendar. The calendar features maps of different areas of Middle Earth, a new one […]

Trailer Failure

by SeanPWallaceon 18/11/2016
The movie trailer is one of the most entrenched traditions of film publicism and advertisement. Every film is expected to have a trailer before it comes out. Every one. Hell, the concept of a trailer is so entrenched that TV series, video games, and even books have trailers produced nowadays. Though the latter of the three […]

London Comic Con 2016 from the eyes of a con-newbie

by KadambariTellsTaleson 13/11/2016
Let me start off my confessing that I have been to a comic con before but it was an extremely new one where manga and geek items were overshadowed by Archie comics and funky designer items. I knew MCM London would be different but I wasn’t prepared for how much…. First off, in my experience, Cosplay […]

MCM Comic Con London 2016

by Daniel Delargyon 13/11/2016
Another year, another convention. The weekend rolls around, the weather is sunshine with the occasional cloud, and there is a hum of excitement in the air. Nervous cosplayers wander around the train station as they are directed and redirected to the appropriate trains, all cramming in with their gear and clutching nervously to wallets which […]

by xdustineflxon 22/10/2016
Time again for the monthly Nerd Block Classic review. With it being October, these are all horror/monster-themed, so let’s take a look. First up, we have an exclusive art print. Scre As you can see, it’s a mash-up of Ghostface and Sidney Prescott from the Scream movie series. I am not sure what I want to […]
