Each box comes with a card detailing the items included. This month there was also a Deadpool giveaway – random boxes had the blu-ray inserted into the box.
It also comes with a mini magazine with all kinds of news/stories on current and upcoming geeky goodness.
Here’s a glimpse inside, to my favorite section actually, the gifting section! I love checking out the items in here!
Tyrion’s Vineyard Shirt – Value $10?
This month’s shirt is an awesome call out to one of the best scenes in Game of Thrones! A+ for being a little subtle while still being an obvious call out to the one and only scene!
The Weaponographist Steam Game – Value $10
Play as Doug McGrave, famous demon hunter for hire. Highest level, bestest gear, ruggedly handsome, and unrepentant jerk. For refusing to aid one stinking demon-infested town, you are immediately – and deservedly – cursed. Your powers, your wealth, and your weapons… Poof! Gone.
It’s worth mentioning how good they’ve been lately at picking games with Mac and PC availability!
Sir Francis Drake’s Lost Ring – Value ??
It’s Uncharted 4 time – so naturally we’re going to get a ton of items in geek boxes I’m not complaining)! I have the game just sitting on my table, waiting to be played!
This little treasure chest is in the burlap sack.
You’ll open it to find the ring lying in wait.
It’s attached to a lanyard for you to wear around your neck. This is how the game’s protagonist, Nathan Drake, always wore it in the game!
Here’s a look at the ring itself. It’s well made, and a cool collector’s item from the video game.
This isn’t an actual valued item this month, it was only used to hold your shirt in place, but I thought it was cool enough to snap a picture of! Great packaging.
Refueling Pint – Value $5-10?
They included a Geek Fuel branded glass.
Deadpool “Ouchie!” Sketch – Value ??
This is another exclusive this month (almost all of the items are) – and it’s awesome. This is such a classic sketch already, in my opinion, because it’s one of the first things we saw from the leaked footage before they even decide to produce the movie. The drawing was a little different in the test footage (this is the drawing from the final movie), but it definitely reminds me of the feeling I had when I first saw the test footage and hoped for a full-length movie! Now it’s the #1 grossing rated-R movie, ever – crazy.
Uncharted 4 Double Sided Mini Posters – Value $5?
These are 7×5 glossy shots of concept art for Uncharted. The top picture is concept art for Uncharted 4, while the bottom is a nice throwback to the original Uncharted.
Deadpool Blu-Ray – Value $19.95 (but this was a giveaway item)
Geek Fuel has been doing giveaways like this for a bit now. They insert items into boxes at random. I never got any of the movie tickets from the past – so I was blown away to see that I finally got something in my box, and I couldn’t be happier! I know this digitally, but of course, I want the physical copy too!
Deadpool Monitor Mate – Value $5?
I love this item! Deadpool doesn’t quite sit well on my monitor, but he’ll fit just fine with all the other vinyl figures!
Deadpool joins the “random subscription box toys” shelf!
Verdict: I thought this was a good month for Geek Fuel. The only reason it wasn’t a great month for me was that there were too many prints and we received a branded item – personally, I’d rather have one high-value item to replace the small stuff. Getting the Blu-Ray majorly enhanced the value of this box for me, so I hope a lot of subscribers out there won as well! I also wanted to call out the ring – I thought it was a cool item this month – and I feel like they beat Loot Gaming to their idea of including items from inside the games in their boxes. I feel that Geek Fuel is progressing well in the geek box category this year, I’ve really enjoyed a lot of their boxes, and this is no different.
What did you think of the May Geek Fuel? Did you get the Blu-Ray?
