Geek Fuel Subscription Box Review + Exclusive Coupon June 2016 - card back

Each month includes a card featuring detail about each item in the box. This month featured a lot of Pokemon and TMNT items – and even one mashup item of the two franchises.

It also comes with a mini magazine. Inside you’ll find more information about this month’s featured franchises. They usually also include other fun things – like gift ideas, which I always find something new to want.

Here’s a look at the inside of the booklet, and more specifically, the gift guide! That Adventure Time driving shade is incredible!

Geek Fuel Subscription Box Review + Exclusive Coupon June 2016 - shirt

Big League Pikachew Shirt – Value $15?

This month’s shirt features Pikachu. It’s also a mashup with the classic bubblegum – Big League Chew! When I was in Little League, I used to take at least half of a bag of big league chew gum and play with it in my mouth. Probably not the greatest thing to emulate baseball players and chewing tobacco – but the gum was pretty delicious.

Geek Fuel Subscription Box Review + Exclusive Coupon June 2016 - Turtle Trainer

Turtle Trainer Stress Ball – Value $10?

One of the exclusives this month if a Pokemon/TMNT mashup stress ball. You’ll be getting one of four possible Turtles color variations.

On the bottom of the container, you’ll see all four color variations – which is really not new information if you’re familiar with TMNT.

I really like the presentation of the stress ball – it was kind of a fun reveal.

Geek Fuel Subscription Box Review + Exclusive Coupon June 2016 - turtles pokeball

Inside, you’ll find your Pokeball. I got the Donatello variation with the purple color band. I actually use stress balls from time to time when I’m coding, it’s good relief for my hands and fingers – so this will be put to use.

Geek Fuel Subscription Box Review + Exclusive Coupon June 2016 - planter box

Super 1-UP Planting Pot – Value $15?

This is the hero item of the month for me! It’s a planter modeled after the tubes in the Mario games!

It’s a really great design – and I like the work they did with the shadowing of the tube.

Geek Fuel Subscription Box Review + Exclusive Coupon June 2016 - venus fly trap

To make this even better – you’ll find a mail-in rebate to get a free Venus Fly Trap for your planter! That’s one of the coolest items I’ve seen in a geek box.

Geek Fuel Subscription Box Review + Exclusive Coupon June 2016 - steam game

Bit Evolution Steam Game – Value $10

First, I love the graphic on the card – I miss the classic Game Boy even though it was kind of a nightmare to keep up and running – don’t forget extra batteries!

This month’s game really reminded me of Mario!

BiT Evolution is a journey into the past that draws inspiration from all of your favorite titles from the 70s, 80s, and 90s.

Again – I must call out how great it is that it’s compatible with Mac and Windows – they’ve done a great job on that.

Geek Fuel Subscription Box Review + Exclusive Coupon June 2016 - Sherlock comic

Sherlock Manga “A Study In Pink” #1 – Value $3.99

This Sherlock issue is an exclusive Geek Fuel variant cover! The did “A Study in Pink” on the Sherlock TV show, as well, I haven’t had a chance to read the comic to see if it’s the same story. This is a manga comic as well – so you’ll be reading it backwards (for you US subscribers out there).

Geek Fuel Subscription Box Review + Exclusive Coupon June 2016 - stamp and tattoos

Pokemon Tattoos – Value $1?

Super Mario Ink Stamp – Value $1-2?

The last two items felt like toss-ins. You’ll be getting some temporary tattoos and a Super Mario ink stamp.

Here’s the stamp I got – you could have received Luigi, Donkey Kong, Mario, or Yoshi – as seen here!

Here’s a look at the stamp itself.

Verdict: While the planter pot/venus fly trap is one of the coolest items I’ve received in a geek box, the box as a whole just ok for me. I think a lot of that has to do with it being very heavy in the Pokemon category – it’s not something that I ever got into – so I’m sure that Pokemon fans will have a blast with the box. I will certainly mail in my rebate for my fly trap! Will you?

  1. I think my Big League Pikachew is my favorite of the four shirts I’ve got from Geek Fuel and I love all the items in the box. I’m not too fond of Sherlock, but have been told the story is amazing. Even though I only got the box yesterday it was amazing.

  2. Yes, the mario planter is awesome! Hope I can swap for it.

  3. so reading the small letter on the mail-in rebate to get a free Venus Fly Trap, it says it’s only available for US residents… well… that sucks!

    • That’s likely because shipping plants/seeds across country lines is often illegal!

  4. I WANT THAT PLANT POT!!
    I didn’t realise this one shipped to the UK…might have to look in to it a little further!!

  5. I need that flower pot!

    • I KNOW! Eric and I are still talking about how awesome it is! 🙂 ?

  6. Omg – I’m not into these boxes but always read the reviews- that planting pot is the COOLEST thing ever!
