My Geek Box Subscription Box Review – August 2014
My Geek Box is a monthly geek and gamer box that ships from the UK. (Lately we’ve been on a bit of a quest to subscribe to all the geeky boxes that exist, and this is one of the few from the UK that ships to the US!)

Rivendell Dogs Shirt – Value $18?
I feel like geek boxes love doing t-shirt mashups! (I wonder if it is considered parody and not subject copyright?)
POP Vinyl Game Of Thrones Brienne of Tarth – Value $10
I think any geek box is a success for my husband if it includes a FUNKO POP Vinyl! He only has a few GoT figures too, so this was a new one for the collection!
Hobbit Postcards – Value $1?
We love the Hobbit, but in general don’t like getting postcards in boxes. They feel like freebies.
Harry Potter Bertie Bott’s Every Flavour Beans – Value $2,25
Game of Thrones Bookmark – Value $3?
I am afraid to eat these jelly beans, but I was so excited to see them in the box! (My husband and I are going on our year late honeymoon to Disney World and Universal Studios later this year, and I can’t wait to go to Harry Potter world! It’s my first time to Universal Studios, so if you have any tips let me know!)
Verdict: Since we had to pay additional shipping, we knew this box may not be a high value, but still wanted to experience a geek box from overseas. I think this box is pretty good, but I’d love to see it come with a card detailing the items included. We weren’t blown away by our first box, but not disappointed either, so we’re going to keep subscribing to get a better sense of what we can expect from this box.
FYI – If you are from the US and considering subscribing, we did not receive a shipping confirmation email and had to follow up with customer care to get an update on the status of the box. I think they are still working out the international shipping piece as the original box they sent us apparently was lost, but they immediately sent a new one. So, great customer care experience, but not great shipment tracking yet.
