Good To Know: This month was advertised as an entirely exclusive month.
Le Tour de Geek T-Shirt – Value $10?
While it’s not my favorite shirt from a geek box, I do like the art work! Another interesting twist is that there is a variant yellow shirt this month – representing the leader in Le Tour de France’s yellow leader shirt. Did anyone get a yellow shirt?
Marvel Civil War #1 – Value $3-4?
I did an unboxing, flipped through it, and took pictures, all just assuming it was the Civil War from 2007 that I’ve already read. It’s only now that I’m writing this that I’m getting giddy realizing that this from the Secret Wars run – so it’s new to me, and forgive me for completely missing it during my future unboxing video! This is an exclusive variant cover as well. It cam bagged and boarded, and with a certificate of authenticity.
Just a couple extra shots of the certificate. I really appreciate when a box bags and boards their comics! It makes a world of difference.
Aliens vs. Vampirella Poster – Value ?
This is one of the larger, thicker, posters I’ve received in a geek box – or any box for that matter. While I’m not a big fan of either topics of the poster, it is an awesome Alien depiction and has a nice glossy finish.
Burnstar Downloadable Game – Value $10
This month’s Steam game is Burnstar, and it comes with a pack of candies along with the download code. I was going to try to play this until I got bummed out and realized that it is PC only. Out of curiosity, does anyone know if they are packaging and selling download codes like this in stores now? Seems like a cool concept for and industry that is moving towards disc-less technology.
Ant-Man Mini-Pint Shot Glass – Value $5-10?
The next exclusive in the box is the Ant-Man “Mini-Pint”. I love the simple graphic on the shot glass, and it’s a fun way to describe a shot glass in the Ant-Man realm.
Shiny! Button – Value $1?
I couldn’t figure out what this is from – Let me know in the comments!
Verdict: This one is impossible to judge from a value standpoint since it is entirely exclusive, so I’ll have to purely focus on the items. While I like a couple of the items, one of those being a comic that I’m excited about reading, it’s not my favorite box. If I could actually play Burnstar, it may have changed my opinion on the box, but as it stands I really didn’t have a wow factor this month. That being said, I’ve loved the past couple of Geek Fuel boxes – so I’m already looking forward to the next one.
