Geek Me Box Subscription Review – July 2015 - Info Card

Each box comes with a card detailing the items included with pictures.

Geek Me Box Subscription Review – July 2015 - Arkham T-shirt

Arkham Is The New Black T-shirt – Value $10?

I thought this was a good mashup t-shirt. Love the graphic. The shirt arrived very wrinkled, almost like it was balled up somewhere and just folded up and shipped.

Geek Me Box Subscription Review – July 2015 - Pac-Man

Snoopy Grow Toy – Value $3.99 on Amazon

This is a swap for me, but I’m curious what it will look like at 6 times the size.

Pac-Man Cherry Sours Tin – Value $3.98 on Amazon based on pack of two

There are SO many Pac-Man candy containers! I always love getting Pac-Man related stuff, but I am curious of when I will have seen all available Pac-Man tins in the world.

Geek Me Box Subscription Review – July 2015 - Comic

The Monsters of Jimmy Crumb – Value $9.99

This was a kickstarter campaign started by Batman writer James Patrick. Here’s a very short synopsis of what we can expect:

The murderous monsters of urban legends have belonged to the ages. Now they belong to Jimmy Crumb

Interesting! I love getting comics, and this is a full volume so it’s even better.

Rare Elements Half Dragon Coin – Value $22

Here’s a bit about Rare Elements:

We’ve designed realistic fantasy currency to enhance tabletop Role Playing Games. Rare Elements Foundry mints authentic coins to bring depth to the role playing experience. We make fantasy a reality by creating dynamic tabletop gaming supplements to enhance game play for passionate geeks like us!

I’m not into tabletop RPGs, but the coin is really well made, and large. Here’s a shot of the front and the back of the coin.

Verdict: The value comes in over the price of the box, so that’s good. But, there’s a lot of value in one item, and for me – it was the item I had the least use for. When I first saw the comic, I wasn’t super excited, but now that I’m reading a bit more about it – I can’t wait to read it. I do wish there was a theme to the items in Geek Me Box – I think it would allow customers to get an idea of what the month’s items will be.

What did you think of this month’s Geek Me Box?

  1. I thought I would give Geek Me Box another try, after being let down many times before. The hook that this was their anniversary box drew me in for one more try.

    Unfortunately, nothing really wowed me, again. The comic was nice. But other boxes would of had it bagged and boarded. Snoopy and Pac Man look like something you would buy in a hospital gift shop. The shirt was balled up in the box. No respect.

    The coin was very nice. But I don’t have any contex to understand what it does.

    As more and more high rollers come out with there high tech boxes, GMB is really going to have to be uniquely cool to compete.

  2. The box was a bust for me, but your comment about when you’ll have seen “all available Pac-Man tins in the world” just makes me want to give you a high five. That was perfect.

  3. I’m not crazy about the box, but I love the thought process on going with a hot, underground comic, alien addition to a unique RPG item. I personally have no interest in any of this, but I do wish more boxes swung for the fences like this.

  4. Not all too impressed…you’d think that they would come up with a theme of sorts but this is scattered all about. And what is with the Snoopy and Pac-Man candy? Very weird! This is my first Geek Me box and will probably be my last. I bought this for my son who is totally into Sci-Fi, comics, and video games. I carefully reviewed every past box to see if they would fit with his interests and this box seemed to match really well but then this shows up at my door…ugh! I will try and swap anything he doesn’t want (most of the box) and cancel the subscription and just go with the Marvel Funko Pop box. Even though it is just Marvel it seems to align more with his interests and as a parent what I would want him to receive. If I can’t swap these I may have to put them up on ebay.
