I <3 Chimichangas Shirt – Value $10?
This month is officially Deadpool month for all geek boxes. I love this shirt, and I love the chimichangas packaging even more – what a great idea! My favorite part about the shirt is that it’s subtle, and still kind of an insider reference.
Shiny Winter Hat – Value $15-20?
Alright, Brown Coats, this is the exclusive Firefly item this month, and I love that it’s also a subtle tip of the hat to Jayne. Not only is this a quality hat, but it’s a cool way to show your fandom! I only have 2 episodes left of the series (and the movie), but I’ve really enjoyed the show! The latter episodes get much stronger than the first 4-5 in my opinion. I found a similar hat on Amazon that I’ve linked to when determining value.
Here’s a shot of Jayne sporting the hat for all of your Alliance out there.
Elliot Quest Game with Candy/Puzzle Tin – Value $10 on Steam
This game is compatible with PC and Mac – Yes! It looks like an old school, Super Mario World-esqe sidescrolling game, I’m sold!
They include a bit more info about the game inside the magazine.
I must say, I absolutely love how Geek Fuel packages their Steam games! While the candy was too sour for me to try, I had a blast toying around with this little magnet puzzle.
Deadpool Keychain – Value $5-10?
You receive one of three possible Deadpool items – a keychain, bottle opener, or pin. I got the keychain! It’s a very quality keychain, now I’m just trying to figure out a way to display since I can’t really use keychains with my keys in my pocket.
Geek Fuel Magnet – Value $5?
They also include a Geek Fuel brand magnet.
Retro Video Game Magazine Issue #10 – Value $6.99
This is an exclusive variant cover of Retro magazine – I didn’t even know they did variant covers for these magazines. These video game review/info magazines really bring me back, and that’s why I love getting them. I used to subscribe to PSM when I was much younger – and it was the first thing I had purchased myself with the money I had earned working with my Grandpa doing masonry – and getting it every month was a big deal for little me. I know some of you don’t know a time when there was no internet and you had to rely on these magazines for information – but these were a big deal!
Here’s a look inside.
Verdict: This is easily my favorite month of Geek Fuel in the past couple of months, maybe ever. I loved every item in the box (the keychain is kind of a toss-in, but it wasn’t a big factor in value, so I’m cool with that). Great Deadpool items and an amazing Firefly item would have been enough for me, so the game and retro magazine are icing on the cake.
