Powered Geek Box Subscription Box Review November 2015 - GI Joe Shirt

G.I. Joe Shirt – Value $8.99 on Amazon

This month’s shirt features the classic G.I. Joe. My brother and I, like a lot of kids in the 80’s, loved G.I. Joe – so this is a nice throw back. I know he’ll absolutely love this shirt, so he’s getting it.

Powered Geek Box Subscription Box Review November 2015 - Adipose

Adipose POP – Value $8.43 on Amazon

This month we get a POP as well! The POP features Adipose from Doctor Who. You really can’t go wrong including Doctor Who in a geek box, I think we’ve seen that demonstarted as a fact so many times this year!

Powered Geek Box Subscription Box Review November 2015 - dice and stress ball

ASOBU Stress Controller – Value $6

We also received this back in March from Arcade Block. I always have an assortment of stress balls at my desk, so it’ll go to use.

Family Guy Drinking Dice Game – $5.78 on Amazon

They include a Family Guy drinking dice game.

Powered Geek Box Subscription Box Review November 2015 - touchstick and candy

ASOMU Touch Control Joystick For Touchscreens – $8.17 on Amazon

I’ve thought about buying these before, but never have, so I was excited to try it. I downloaded a game on my iPad, but it really doesn’t work well at all. A major design flaw is that it’s a square, so it’s hard to use all 360 degrees of a thumbstick, plus it kept popping off.

Assorted Candy

Powered Geek Box Subscription Box Review November 2015 - Guiness World Record Kit

Guinness World Records Build Your Own UFO Kit – Value $10.32 on Amazon

Here’s something I didn’t know eve existed. This kit includes everything you need to build the UFO and all of the Guinness rules and restrictions along with a bunch of different records you can try to beat.

Powered Geek Box Subscription Box Review November 2015 - Tetris magnets

Tetris Magnets – $7.84 on Amazon

While I love Tetris, I think I’ve received enough Tetris magnets for a lifetime at this point!

Verdict: I love getting a POP in a box, it usually means its a win for me, but this month didn’t do it for me. I love the shirt and the POP, but I’m not too interested in the the other items, and the thumbstick doesn’t work well at all! It feels random, and it is, so I shouldn’t be surprised at this point since I’ve reviewed quite a few of them.

What did you think of the November Powered Geek Box?

  1. I love those magnets!! I have the Tetris stickers but haven’t placed them because I’m afraid of commitment (LOL). I’ve been planning on buying a magnet sheet so I can use them as magnets but those would save me the trouble! I should just order some…

  2. Squee! Adipose! Want!!

  3. Whoa, you doubled your price on the box with the magnets alone.

    • haha…whoops. fixed.
