Last month’s Horror Block was one of the best I’ve ever received so they set the bar pretty high for themselves for this month.

Horror Block is Nerd Block‘s horror-themed mystery box that every month includes a t-shirt and a selection of toys & collectibles.

The box is the same size and weight as last month, along the lines of a large shoe box. The box featured the same fun bloody packaging with the blood soaked packing tape. Enough talk, onto the horrific loots inside!

The “Horror Certified Product of the Month” is the NECA Cult Classics Hall of Fame action figure of the Jigsaw Killer. In addition to Saw’s Jigsaw Killer, he also comes with his puppet which can ride the included tricycle. If you know NECA, you’d know this is a high quality sculpt that’s nicely painted and decently articulated.

I believe some of this month’s boxes included the red coated masked version and some received the black coated unmasked version.

Retail: $19.99

IMG_20140902_235004This month’s box included over $60 worth of horror items! Just like last month’s box, this one is also a great value. It’s worth the subscription price for Rue Morgue and the shirt alone but it’s awesome that they include a marquee item like NECA figures. Even if you don’t buy subscription boxes, I still recommend Horror Block if you’re a horror fan.

In addition to the Horror Block, they also offer also Nerd Block Classic (“Comic Con in a box, plus a shirt, monthly!”), Nerd Block Jr. (“Awesome nerd gear for kids aged 6 to 11”) for boys and girls and the upcoming Arcade Block (video game mystery box).
