Geek Fuel Subscription Box Review – January 2015 Info

This box came with a card detailing the items included.

The box comes with a mini mag very similar to the Loot Crate mini mag.

Here is a look inside:

Geek Fuel Subscription Box Review – January 2015 Page Geek Fuel Subscription Box Review – January 2015 Tee

A Brief History of Time Travel Tee – Value $15?

While my husband is currently in tee-overload thanks to geek boxes, I think this is one of his favorites.

Geek Fuel Subscription Box Review – January 2015 Star Trek

Vandor Star Trek Coaster – Value $4

Legend of Zelda Candy Tin – Value $3.50

Subscribers will receive one of four variations of this coaster. Since we’re not Star Trek fans, we’ll probably swap this to help someone get the whole set!

(This Legend of Zelda tin is full of mini mints).

Geek Fuel Subscription Box Review – January 2015 Doctor Who

Doctor Who Monitor Mate – Value $15

Full Mojo Rampage Download + Vinyl Sticker – Value $13

Mashup Magnet Featuring Iron Man and Ant Man – Value $2? (pictured in group shot image).

This Doctor Who Monitor Mate is a bobble head that sticks to the top of your computer monitor. I read in one of the Amazon reviews that it works well sticking to a car dashboard as well!

This game download is a free complete game of Full Mojo Rampage through Steam.

Lastly – I forgot to get a photo of the Iron Man/Ant Man magnet, but you can see it in the image of all the items in the box. It was made exclusively for subscribers by Geek Fuel.

Verdict: This box has a value of a little over $50. I think the value is great for the $24 a month cost. Some of these items weren’t hits with us, so it isn’t our favorite geek box this month, but we have some good items to swap.

What did you think of the January Geek Fuel box?

  1. Why does the website for geek fuel say they will have an exclusive t shirt in every box and then during check out it says not a shirt in every box??? Sounds very fishy to me

  2. Is this shirt exclusive to this box? Would love to get for ky husband!

  3. Omg, I love the time travel shirt, so cool! The star trek coaster would be cool if it was a set. I don’t get this box but I like this month.

  4. Liz, you’re subscibing to the Collectir Corps, right?

    • Subscribed the minute after I posted about it! 🙂

  5. Right now, Geek Fuel is my favorite because they have the best customer service of the ones I’m getting (although Collectible Geek hasn’t arrived yet but their service is awesome). I find the bigger ones like Loot Crate and Nerd Block are becoming far more interested in celebrity endorsements and attending Comic Con or whatever than anything their actual paying customers think or say. There’s been a lot of new subs recently, though, so hopefully they’ll realize that and shift gears to retain their long-term subscribers as the subs expire. I know I’m already debating let those expire, but I signed up for a year of Geek Fuel and long-term with My Geeky Goodies and Collectible Geek simply because they’re more responsive and seem less like marketers than real geeks and fans. (Also, the quality seems even across the board, which doesn’t make sense given the foothold Loot Crate and Nerd Block have. They should be able to offer more unique finds.)

    • I’m thinking the new Marvel/Funko sub-box has scared many of the active competitors. Collectablegeek is cool, but the price of shipping itself is more expensive then most sub-boxes.

  6. OMG – please tell me you’re putting the Dalek up for swap! Neeeed…

    • I will tell my husband Eric (he does all the swapping on my account 🙂 )

      • That explains a lot! I have an open swap with you/Eric for a Funco Pop Judge Dredd 🙂
