The sounds of the modules you use, and the ability to conceive of sounds in a way you wouldn't have due to the different workflow. On a general note, any way to wrap your mind around a new way of working will produce different results. On a specific note, boxes like the Mutable Instruments modules have distinctive and sought-after sounds that make the most sense in a modular context.
It's not just about what you could do, it's what you actually end up doing. So while you could theoretically spend a long time tweaking a virtual analog vst and a resonator and a reverb to replicate the kinds of interrelated modulated sounds that modulars lend themselves to, it's much easier and more natural to whip it up in an actual modular environment like VCV.
You missed the keyword Reaktor there. Currently VCV doesn't offer anything that wouldn't already be possible for him in sound design with Blocks. Don't get me wrong, this is an absolutely awesome project that can become something totally amazing in a short time, but the realistic answer to his clearly formulated question is nothing.
As VCV grows in module selection, matures and catches up on features, choosing between Blocks and VCV will be mainly a question of UI preference.
