Loot Crate vs Nerd Block – February 2016!

This post may contain referral/affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.


Previously, on Geek Box Showdown: Nerd Block had a clean sweep with its box and Khal Drogo figure!

Just a note before starting – Since geek boxes are including more and more exclusive items, it’s becoming harder to get a real value, so I figured I’d give a fair estimate of those items. Also, if the review has a value range – I took the high-end of the range.


Nerd Block ClassicRead the Full Review

The Cost: $19.99 plus shipping (Shipping is $8.75 to Canada, $9.50 to US, $12.50 Worldwide)

Number of items: 5

Value of items: $55

Exclusive Items: Deadpool Shirt and Plush, Super Wine Stopper, Power Glove Oven Glove

Synopsis: This month’s theme was Deadpool at Home and included a couple Deadpool items and some cool geeky home items. This month was a real hit for me – I really love the wine stopper, mug, and Power Glove!


Loot Crate – Read the Full Review

The Cost: $13.37 plus $6 shipping a month

Number of items: 4 (not counting the monthly pin)

Value of items: $50

Exclusive Items: All items were exclusive!

Synopsis: AWESOME month for Loot Crate! The theme was Dead and focus on two things – Deadpool and The Walking Dead, so it suited me pretty well. I can’t say enough about the Deadpool Q-Fig, I absolutely love it. I’m really appreciating the fewer, but high-quality, items.


Geek Fuel – Read the Full Review

The Cost: $23.90 a month

Number of items: 6

Value of items: $62

Exclusive Items: All exclusives (besides the game)

Synopsis: This was my favorite month to date for Geek Fuel. I was a big fan of my Deadpool shirt (not to mention that I loved the packaging) and my Firefly hat! I also like getting magazines, like this Retro magazine, in boxes. They aren’t a big driver of value but I really lie to sit down and read them – it kind of brings me back to growing up when these magazines were the only way to get video game info and reviews!

Powered Geek Box Subscription Box Review February 2016 - all items

Powered Geek Box: Premium Box – Read the Full Review

The Cost: $19.95 + $6.95 shipping a month for the Deluxe Box, $29.95 + $9.95 shipping for the Premium Box

Number of items: 6

Value of items: $77

Exclusive Items: None

Synopsis: This was a really good month for Powered Geek Box, and it has to be one of their highest valued boxes yet. I’ve already got my Deadpool Pocket POP on my shelf and I absolutely love my new Batman tumbler, I have it right next to me as I’m writing this.


1UP Box – Read the Full Review

The Cost: $18.92

Number of items: 6

Value of items: $45

Exclusive Items: Shirt, Decals, and Metallic Tattoos

Synopsis: This month’s theme was Transform and they did a great job of featuring Kirby and Jake! Those were my two favorite items, and they really weren’t items that I’d use, so I really didn’t feel like the demographic for this one.


Super Geek Box – Read the Full Review

The Cost: $13.92 plus shipping ($6 shipping to the US)

Number of items: 6

Value of items: $34

Exclusive Items: Decal, Zipper Pull, Air Freshener, Magnet, and Shirt

Synopsis: This month’s theme was Apocalypse. This was easy for me, my favorite item is the Daryl Dixon Dorbz figure! Beyond the figure, the items weren’t really my style.


Favorite Box: Loot Crate was really impressive this month! The Q-Fig alone sealed the deal for me.

Favorite Item: My overall favorite item came from Loot Crate, too. The Deadpool figure is in a prime spot in display on my shelf – it’s awesome!

February was a really great month for geek boxes, especially if you can’t get enough Deadpool. I’m really excited for March as well. With the release of Daredevil and, of course, Batman vs Superman, I fully expect the boxes to be just as great.

  1. In love the power glove oven glove. So cool

  2. My son gets Loot Crate and Geek Fuel and I thought they both did a great job with the dead themes. I loved that Geek Fuel packaged their tee like a burrito. That was so funny and cool to unpack. I think I liked Geek Fuel’s Deadpool tee better because it was more subtle.

  3. You need to try Bam Box. It’s as good as Nerd Block in my opinion. Plus they often include autographs.

    • I’ll definitely check it out – thanks!

  4. Too much Deadpool.

    • There is no such thing 🙂

  5. I loved Loot Crate!! The Deadpool figure is great but my favorite item is the ears on a rope. This was very creative, unexpected and instantly brought a smile to my face. Plus I really love that episode. ?
