The year really is slipping away, isn’t it? I honestly couldn’t believe it when the August/September edition of Nerd Nab appeared on my doorstep. It doesn’t feel like I unboxed the last edition (June/July) that long ago!

But arrive it has, along with its innards of goodies. So, what’s in the latest orange box? Let’s take a look…

Dammit, I wasn’t a Nabber Ninja winner again this time around! If I was, I would’ve gotten myself a Hashtag Escape Voucher (which I would’ve loved, seeing as I had such a great experience last time), Pokemon GO team car magnets, and a Zomling ‘In the Town’ Tower pack.

I ain’t complaining though. I still scored myself a load of neat stuff anyway:

  • T-shirt (with Pokemon/Lord of the Rings print)
  • Comic Book (Suicide Squad #1)
  • Mafia III Dog Tag (dead handy, I’ll have you know)
  • Rayman Rabbids Invade the World collectible (I didn’t get the  SA one dammit)
  • 1GB Always On voucher (not as delicious as sweets, but far more useful)
  • Pokemon GO car Magnet (for when I need to pull over for a Zubat)
  • Zomlings ‘In the Town’ (for my collection!)
  • Pokemon black & white stickers (my PC case is going to look amazeballs)

I criticised the last Nerd Nab box for having Always On sweets, but no actual Internet code. I’m very happy that this latest edition has remedied that.

I’m also very happy with my Mafia III Dog Tag. It really feels nice and solid, which leads me to believe that it is of decent quality. The Pokémon shirt is very cool too. Upon further inspection (see: the Nerd Nab pamphlet in my box) I’ve discovered that the wording in front is actual Lord of the Rings Elvish. Neat!

That’s the August/September Nerd Nab box in a nutshell really. What do you think of its contents? Reckon it was worth the money?

Defence of the Ancients? More like Defence of the cabbages! Have you seen my head? I look like a Merino Sheep on pole. NO SHANGE only SHAPPIES! :D

    Maybe I’m expecting a bit more, but this seems a little light on content. :/

    • Matthew Figueira

      This box was a teeny bit emptier to be honest.

      • The Order of the Banana

        Are you also recieving goodies from Loot Crate?

        • Matthew Figueira

          Nope 🙂 just Nerd Nab.

      • Sageville

        …and very Pokemonish

  • Alien Emperor Trevor


  • Dutch Matrix

    DO they ask you your shirt size before you order?
    Dumb question I know…

    • Zoe Hawkins

      yes. yes they do. 🙂

      • Dutch Matrix

        Not like Takealot. I ordered The Simpsons Movie way back in the day with T-Shirt. They sent a medium! A MEDIUM! DO I LOOK LIKE A MEDIUM TO YOU???

        • Original Heretic
        • Alien Emperor Trevor

          I don’t know, do you talk to dead people?

          • Dutch Matrix

            I am more of a Ghost Whisperer…

        • ??????? ????? ™

          Did you just assume your size?

          • Dutch Matrix

            Now why would I assume my size???

        • Dungeon of JJ

          You just look like an avatar pic to me, so could be medium. Depends on the resolution, really

          • Sageville

            He’s Arnold size, I suppose Chief is Deadpool size, you’re about hand size, while I’m maybe the size of a leaf or a emoji…

          • Dungeon of JJ


  • VampyreSquirrel

    Technically that’s worth more than the R350pm (or R333pm if you buy 3 months) that you’re paying… but I’d expect a lot more out of it. It was looking pretty promising with the earlier boxes (not including that ninja one you got Matt)… but feels like it’s falling flattish in my opinion.

    “…not expecting any No Man’s Sky stuff…”

    Matty, you goddamn savage!!! XD

      And drinking the sweet, sweet tears of Geoff, Darryn and Sandy XD

      Matts you savage beast you 😛

    • Matthew Figueira

      xD ain’t even mad!

    Speaking of unboxing and seeing the youtube video.
    I’ve read the new films and publication bill in its current state will halt SA people from uploading videos to youtube, twitter, facebook and instagram unless they pay a registration fee…… like what the actual $#^&.

  • ??????? ????? ™

    I can honestly say, not interested in any of these items

  • DrKiller

    What does the pokemon magnet thing look like?
