last nerd block

I’ve found the I’ve rather lost the excitement that came with a nerd block during the last few months. So I decided that after my last one of the batch of 6 in Oct I’ll just give this one up and move to pastures new. The last few boxes just were not doing it for me anymore. Plus my t-shirt collection is getting to the point of silliness now.

Well, that was the plan until Oct box came with a card announcing that November box theme is “Tis the season”, and features exclusives for Firefly, Sherlock and Star Wars!

How can I say no to that.

So I signed up for one more box. (I also got a welcome block for that, but the stuff inside were bleh because I’ve been getting the previous boxes anyway. They were just leftovers, methinks)

And I think I’ve never been happier with any of the past Blocks.

Firefly ornament that I will modify, eventually

Am not overly fond of the moose glass nor the print, but the rest are fab!

Firefly! *squee! Always wanted a Firefly figure.

And this will sit nicely with the rest of my sherlock titan figures.

This will still be my last nerd block though. Am currently quite happy with My Box from Japan and Gachacrate. Though I think I will just give gachacrate a little bit more time before moving off to something else.

As mentioned in the previous post, Johnpop’s hair is waaay wayyyyy too bright blond.


3 colour mix….


and a shock blanket protection sheet later…. (*sniggers* anyone caught the reference, or was I geeking out too much?)


After and Before.

Much better.

P.S. I can’t find my GW purity seal spray!! *frantically rushes around everywhere rummaging through bags/boxes*

So… John is not looking amused with the lack of a colourd robe for quite a while now… We can’t have that!


This proved to be a tad messier and more time consuming that I initially thought. Just in case of any accidents on the head I decided to give it a bit of protection.

“mmm mffpf mm mffmamppf” translate: this is so undignified

Yes, sorry. It looks so wrong.


Paint paint paint paint.

I decided to paint the white strips light grey, and change the tshirt and slippers to dark grey. Leaving it white made it look unfinished.


Ta da!

Those stripy robes took a LONG LONG time while to finish. Touching up was neverending. I also found that using cling film is not great. It stuck to some of the paint (ripped of a tiny bit of skin 😦 ), and somehow made the whole area sticky!

Looking at nearly-finished Johnpop, I decided to redo the hair colour. This was way too bright.
