Each month comes with an information card detailing each item inside. Geek Fuel doesn’t have themes, but you’ll know 2-3 franchises in each month before it ships.
You’ll also receive a mini magazine with more interviews and stories inside. I love how this month’s magazine was themed after the classic Nintendo Power magazine!
They also include a card that details every item in the box.
This month, they also toss in a Geek Fuel sticker.
X-Men Apocalypse Shirt – Value $15?
This month’s exclusive shirt is a licensed X-Men Apocalypse shirt. I’m really liking this month’s design – it’s simple but also includes a good amount of detail when you really look at the drawings.
It fits well. I’m a big X-Men fan, so I always appreciate a good X-Men themed shirt.
Nintendo Cartridge Cutting Board – Value $15-20?
Geek Fuel pitched this as a nostalgic home good – that’s about as accurate of a description as it could have had. This might take the cake as the most unique item I’ve seen in a geek box.
If you grew up with Nintendo, everything about this item should look familiar. The sleeve looks just like a game sleeve, and of course, the cutting board is a replica of a Nintendo cartridge!
DC Coloring Posters – Value $10-15?
This is another first for me – these are 2 coloring posters featuring DC comic covers. Each poster has a front and back, so you get 4 designs to color.
They’re also a bit oversized – which I really like – you’ll be getting Batman, Justice League, Wonder Woman, and Superman featuring Harley Quinn. Very cool.
Mallet of Mischief – Value $5?
The next item is an inflatable Harley Quinn mallet.
It’s pretty large and has a couple Harley Quinn callouts on the mallet.
Blacksea Odyssey Steam Game + Sticky Star – Value $10
I love top-down games like this, so I’m excited to give this one a try.
This look like a blast to me – it’s supported on Mac and PC.
It also came with a little sticky star toy. This was a real nostalgic moment for me! I remember getting these sticky hands from the machines at our local grocery store…they’d get so dirty immediately. Ew.
Verdict: I’m not sure where I stand with Geek Fuel this month. On one hand, I really like the cutting board and shirt – but I’m not sure they’re the best hero items for a box. The posters are really nice as well – I don’t color, but they are nice enough to just display as is – so that could work for me. As always, I really like the Steam game – they’ve been including a lot of awesome games this year, this month is no different. I’m just somewhere in the middle this month – most of the items are cool, but nothing was over the top for me this month.
Help me decide! What did you think of this month’s Geek Fuel?
