Crowley is holding his favorite whiskey – Glencraig. I’m not too familiar with the series, but I do know that it’s super popular and has a devoted fanbase.

Bendable Nightmare Before Christmas Jack Keychain – Value $5 on Amazon

They sent two items from Nightmare Before Christmas – both featuring Jack Skellington. The first is this bendable keychain figure. His arms and legs are bendable to your liking, and he measures 3 1/2 inches tall.

Jack Skellington Pin – Value $4-5 based on pack of 4 on Amazon

Harry Potter Playing Cards – Value $6 on Amazon

I actually liked this set a lot because it didn’t feature any pictures of the characters. Instead, each card features an item from the lore of the world they live in. Some characters are including, like Buckbeak and Scrabbers, but it mostly reads like an informative book you’d find in Hogwarts.

Five Nights at Freddy’s Mini Posters – Value $11 on Amazon

The final item is from the Five Nights at Freddy’s video game. This includes two mini posters – there are 18 in all to collect.

This is actually one of the longer length locker posters – 5 of the 18 to collect are locker posters.

Here is my other poster – it’s the typical mini variety.

Verdict: While the value adds up to more than the price, the items simply weren’t for me this month. Outside of the playing cards, everything else was either a slight fandom or not at all. That’s a risk with boxes that don’t disclose fandoms, so it’s something to keep in mind when subscribing.

What did you think of the October Powered Geek Box?
