My Geek Box Subscription Review – November 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!)
Shipping takes a while – so that explains why this review is of the November box! (I’m also admittedly behind on reviews right now).
My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
The Subscription Box: My Geek Box
The Cost: £16.99 in the UK (about $30-$35 to the US shipped)

Each box comes with a Mini Magazine – this month the included a free mini poster on the last page:
I would prefer it if they included a page for the items included in the box – hopefully that comes soon.
Doctor Who Talking Mini Plush – Value $11.30
Baker Street Sign – Value $6?
This little plush has two different sayings, and is going straight to my Doctor Who-fan cousin! We’ll be keeping this Baker Street sign for ourselves though – we’re big Sherlock and Benedict Cumberbatch fans. (I feel like that’s the equivalent of saying we like pizza – who doesn’t love Benedict Cumberbatch?)
Thunderbirds 5 4 3 2 1 Shot Glasses – Value $15
Unfortunately one of these shot glasses arrived broken, which makes a numbered set a little less valuable. Everything was packaged fine – I think it just is pretty difficult to ship a product like this overseas.
2000 AD Comic – Value $4
These “Weirds” are basically Nerds – and they provided a nice little childhood flashback!
Starbug 1 Schematical Report Tee – Value $10?
I did a little googling to find that this tee is a nod to the science fiction sitcom Red Dwarf. We’ll probably end up swapping it so it can end up with someone who loves the show!
Verdict: Geek boxes can be hit or miss depending on what items they include from your favorite shows, comics, movies, etc. so that’s a gamble we’ve accepted with all these subscriptions. This month it was more of a miss for us, but I do love the Baker Street sign! I think we’ll give this subscription another month, and if it isn’t more of a hit we may cancel the subscription for now.
What do you think of the November My Geek Box?
