This subscription has no theme, but they now include an information card.
The card has a paragraph or two that lists each item in the box.
Straight Outta Gotham Shirt – Value $15?
This might be my favorite shirt from My Geek Box yet. It’s basic but combines two unmistakable classics.
Cult Vinyl Dredd Figure – Value $10-15?
This little 3-inch vinyl figure is a brand new line and is an exclusive launch for this box!
He’s got the classic Dredd scowl – he’s still totally the law. The arms and head do twist a bit – but, overall, I’m not sure how I feel about this new line – nothing sticks out as original or gets me excited.
Homer Simpson Buddha – Value $10 on Amazon
We first received this vinyl in the September 2015 Loot Crate.
I’m ok with having a second Kidrobot Homer figure. What’s more interesting is that this is now the 34d month straight to have an item that was in a past Loot Crate box – We received the Venom mug in November and the Marvel shoelaces in October. We’ll have to keep an eye on this for subscribers that get multiple geek boxes.
Deadpool 16-Month Calendar – Value $7.99
We just received an incredibly similar calendar in the December Comic Block as well – only with an exclusive variant cover.
The imagery is different, with some crossover from the other Deadpool calendar. I love the artwork in the previous calendar, and this one has artwork that is just as good.
Turncoat Graphic Novel – Value $10 on Amazon (based on similar novel)
The final item in the box is a graphic novel from UK publisher TPub.
It’s got a bit of comedy in here as it follows Duke – who is the world’s worst superhero assassin.
Turncoat follows the story of Duke, the world’s worst superhero assassin, and his constant battle with his ex-wife-and-rival assassin, Sharon. Duke is always one step behind Sharon, constantly missing out on the “big hit” that will set him for life. (It certainly doesn’t help matters that he only ever seems to go up against D-list superheroes like “Bug-Boy” and “Freedom Fighter”.)
…so when Duke receives a contract for the most famous superhero team in the world, he realizes his time has come. Not just to finally make the big hit, but to finally move on from his ex-wife.
Verdict: It’s a bit odd to see an old Loot Crate item in the past 3 deliveries – it’s not a good trend for multi-geek-box subscribers. I like seeing My Geek Box start to get some exclusive items, though – that’s a step in the right direction for this box. Overall, this month is pretty good – I like the shirt and graphic novel – but it does seem to miss a hero item.
