Geek Fuel doesn’t have themes, but you’ll know 2-3 franchises in each month before it ships.

It comes with an information card that details each item in the box.

It comes with a mini mag that has featured stories and a little bit more about the included items. Who is excited for Nintendo Switch?! I’m disappointed I didn’t get a pre-order!

Nuka-World Amusements Shirt – Value $15?

This month’s shirt features Fallout! I’m always more of a fan of the more obscure shirt – so this one is calling out to me.

Geek-Fuel-February-2017-0014

You’ll even have a little glimpse of a Nuka-Cola cap on the back!

The shirt is also accompanied by an oversized ticket for an instant giveaway! I didn’t win – and I’m not sure what the prize is – but I have loved their fun giveaways.

8-BIT Sword Portable Charger – Value $20-25?

I am LOVING this Zelda power bank!

Geek-Fuel-February-2017-0023

The first thing to mention is the packaging. I think Geek Fuel has the best and most creative packaging in the business – so it was no surprise that unboxing this power bank was as excited as using it.

It comes with everything you’ll need to power this sucker up. If you’re phone charges via micro-USB then you’re all set with just this cable, while iPhone users will still need to carry their normal charge cable.

Stranger Things Pin – Value $5-10?

They’re now including a limited edition pin, featuring their mascot, in every box. Again, amazing packaging mimicking an old-school action figure!

Geek-Fuel-February-2017-0021

There were 3 possible pins to get – the pin I got featured Dustin, while there were 500 Demogorgon and only 1 Upside Down Will pin. Not that’s Ultra Rare!

Hero In Training Print – Value $10-15?

The hero in training print features Batman!

Geek-Fuel-February-2017-0018

This 11×17 print from Juan Muniz is a Geek Fuel exclusive.

Geek-Fuel-February-2017-0017

It features baby Batman playing with his toy villains – sort of what he’d still do as the caped crusader. There were two versions of this poster. The version I received was the typical version, but there is a limited edition 500-run print of a different blue Batman.

Archibald’s Adventure Steam Game – Value $5

I’ll never shy away from a little side-scrolling action – that being said, this wasn’t my favorite game from Geek Fuel.

Help Archie to overcome all pitfalls of the Dr. Klumpfus mansion in this funny action puzzle game.

Verdict: The shirt, pin, and amazing power bank put this month’s box well over-the-top for me! I’m starting to really like their pins, too – they’re unique and fun – and while I don’t wear the pins, I do attach them to my POP shelves for display! While I’ve never been a big Zelda fan, the word bank is just too cool – and it’s getting me even more excited for the Nintendo Switch – fingers crossed I can get my hands on one!

  1. yes i just joined thanks Eric !!! i’m not interested in the print if anyone wants to trade for it… im on the ok to trade list.

  2. Before I subscribe I’d like to know if these products are real licensed products or just fan made items? I don’t see any legal lines from the franchises so just checking. I like to collect real items and don’t want to be stuck with things I can’t see the value increasing over time.

  3. Does the back of the ticket say you’re a loser?! What’s it say?!

    • Late for a reply, for those who are wondering, the other side of the ticket contains a number which you can enter at the geekfuel site and if you’re lucky, you get a vault code, which can be used in the Geek Fuel Nuka-World Giveaway to win Xbox One, Pip-Boy and Fallout 4 bundle. To win you gather entries by clicking on it once per day (+1 each time), visiting the Geek Fuel website (+3), Instagram (+5), Facebook (+5), retweeting (+10) and so on. The vault code, if you’re lucky enough to get it, gives you 100 bonus entries.

  4. The link doesn’t seem to be giving the discount. Any ideas on why that might be happening? Thanks!

      • I’m totally wrong – the $3 doesn’t come off – just use the link above, and I’ll update the post. thanks and sorry!

        • Thank you for your quick response!

  5. That Zelda Power Bank is amazing! One of the coolest items I’ve seen! The packaging is also great!

    • Yes! Glad you think so too – it’s one of the best items I’ve received in a box with its presentation

  6. Would anyone want to swap for the shirt?? I love it but nothing else in the box really speaks to me…

    • I have the box coming and I can get whatever size you need. What size do you want and what do you have for trade or would you like to buy?

      • I have the Fall and Winter pusheen boxes, if you would be interested in one of those? I also get the sephora box and have a few mystery modcloth items i got but never wore. (I really need to find the time to update my swaps with pictures lol!)

        • Sorry, I am a nerdy/geeky guy. Do you have anything else? If not, I could sell it for $12 shipped if I can get your size

    • I would love to, but I am from India and shipping will cost me a bomb!!

  7. I love the shirt and am glad its red instead of black. Even though I never played Zelda, I do love that 8-bit USB charger! That is so awesome. I too am liking the pins, but I hate having to open up the packaging. I am not a print fan, although this one is cute, its just not my thing. I can’t wait for this box!
