Good To Know: This box doesn’t have themes or info cards.

Powered Geek Box Subscription Box Review May 2016 - all items

This box doesn’t come with a card or have monthly themes. Although, an argument can be made that this month has two themes – TMNT and Marvel.

Powered Geek Box Subscription Box Review May 2016 - shirt

TMNT Party Rockin’ Shirt – Value $17.95 on Amazon

I’m a 32-year-old man who grew up on the TMNT arcade games, cartoons, and movies – so you can see why the child in me is excited to wear this shirt! While I prefer a good understated geeky shirt now, this is still awesome.

Powered Geek Box Subscription Box Review May 2016 - Pocket POP

Raphael Pocket POP – Value $7.82 on Amazon

This month came with a Funko item as well – this TMNT Pocket POP. I’m not sure if there was any variation to these, but I received Raphael.

Since this is a heavily themed TMNT box, I started looking around at older TMNT clips and was quickly reminded of my favorite Raphael moment from the first movie:

You just can’t beat that first movie!

I digress. Back to the items!

Powered Geek Box Subscription Box Review May 2016 - lunch box

TMNT Lunch Box – Value $11.79 on Amazon

I would have LOVED this item when I was younger and obsessed with TMNT.

It’s got the classic ‘Turtle Power’ graphic on the back.

Here’s a look inside the lunch box – it’s pretty spacious.

Powered Geek Box Subscription Box Review May 2016 - glass front

TMNT Drinking Glass – Value $5?

I can’t find this exact glass online, but there were a number of similar glasses to compare it to. The glass I received had my personal favorite turtle on one side, Michaelangelo.

Powered Geek Box Subscription Box Review May 2016 - string doll

Wolverine String Doll – Value $5 on Amazon

One of the things that I loved just as much as the turtles when I was young, was the X-Men. I’m not sure why these string dolls are a thing – I’m not even sure that I’d like it as a kid (but probably, since it’s Wolverine).

Here’s a look at the doll.

Powered Geek Box Subscription Box Review May 2016 - pin and air freshener

Deadpool Air Freshener – Value $6.49 on Amazon

Hulk Pin

The final two items felt like filler to me. I can’t understand how an air freshener would cost $6, but I’m simply reflecting what Amazon is telling me.

Verdict: This was a fun box for me because it brought back a lot of memories. I wonder how much money I had dumped into arcade machines between the TMNT games and the X-Men arcade game – I probably don’t want to know. They seem to be grouping some items together recently, and while it’s still a complete mystery box – they are somewhat catering to a couple franchises in the past couple boxes.

What did you think of the May Powered Geek Box?

  1. They definitely sent you the best box they could curate because my son had this sub a few months and none of his boxes were been nearly this good, definitely not worth the price. Not to mention they stole my credit card info and made unauthorized charges to my account. They also refused to reply to my 5 emails asking to cancel my sub and about them stealing my card info. I had to contact CrateJoy directly to cancel. BEWARE OF THIS SUB.

  2. I like the theme, but for $40, I’m looking for something you can’t go pick up at the local Target and a little better value.
