Check out all of my Geek Me Box reviews!
The last time we reviewed this box was July 2015. At that time, they had included a card that detailed the items in the box, which now seems like they have done away with – which is a step backwards, in my opinion. To me, the work put into cards and booklets that geek boxes like Loot Crate, Geek Fuel, and Nerd Block do show how much time and effort goes into curating your box!
Battle Shirt – Value $10?
January’s shirt features your favorite heroes battling it out. Apparently, Pikachu has killed Michelangelo!
The World According to Batman book – Value $16.59 on Amazon
We have previously received the world according to Wolverine and Spider-Man in past boxes, so I had a general idea about this item. The books are pretty cool, they include interactive items on the pages – of course, it’s fun to flip through this one because I’m a big Batman fan!
Kidrobot Street Fighter blind box vinyl figure – Value $6.49 on Amazon
They include a Kidrobot blind box figure. We’ve seen a ton of Street Fighter this month, and I expect even more next month with the release of the Street Fighter V.
I got Zangief, and here he is.
Dragonball Z cards – Value $0.99 on Amazon
They include a pack of Dragonball Z Chromium Edition trading cards.
Here are the cards that I received. The bottom middle is actually a sticker.
Zelda Figure – Value $7 on Amazon
I was actually surprised at how expensive this was to buy on Amazon! This is, essentially, a blind box vinyl figure.
I got Link. These figures are based on the Phantom Hourglass game, so it also has a little hourglass at its base.
Verdict: I’ve calculated the value close to $40 in this box, so that’s a good return for a $30 box. While this box did have a theme according to the website, Battle, it still didn’t feel very curated, and I think that’s just down to presentation. For me, presentation/curation of a box makes you feel like you’re getting something special instead of getting items at a value because they were bulk purchased. I think this box can get there, though!
