Powered Geek Box now has themes – February’s theme was ‘Time Travel’!

Powered-Geek-Box-March-2017-0004

The Flash Shirt – Value $18 at Hot Topic

You’ll get a shirt every month – but they aren’t exclusive shirts. This month’s Time Travel shirt features The Flash – who can pop on his cosmic treadmill and time travel!

You’ll get a lunchbox from a character that can travel to dimensions where time is irrelevant – Doctor Strange!

Doctor Who 500 Year Diary – Value $5-10 on Amazon

From one Doctor to another – the next item is a 8×5 Doctor Who notebook.

Powered-Geek-Box-March-2017-0038

It’s made to look like the 500 Year Diary, of course.

Powered-Geek-Box-March-2017-0037

Even the pages are made to look old and weathered.

Doctor Who Top Trumps – Value $11 on Amazon

Staying on the Doctor Who theme, it also includes a mini card game.

There are 30 cars in all. This is a stat-based game where you’ll duel against your opponents.

Doctor Who Topps Alien Attax Card Game – Value $30 on Amazon (from 3rd part resellers)

The next item is another card game featuring Doctor Who from Topps.

There is a lot to unpack here – you’ll get a large binder for your cards, a pack of cards, a special card, checklist and game board.

Here’s a look at the game board and checklist for your collection.

Powered-Geek-Box-March-2017-0014

Powered-Geek-Box-March-2017-0016

There is a lot to understand before you start, but it’s a stat based game where you can attack or defend against the opponent’s card – that’s the very simple version of it.

Powered-Geek-Box-March-2017-0018

Powered-Geek-Box-March-2017-0019

The binder is a basic, clear, binder – but that’s nice, you can use this for any cards you’d like.

Finally, you’ll get a pack of cards to get you started.

The Flash Pin Mate Wooden Figure – Value $5

You’ll receive a wooden Flash figure.

If you’re a fan – there are 8 more to collect!

Flash Button – Value $1?

The final item in the box is Flash button. It’s a small button, too – it’s diameter measures about 1.25 inches.

Verdict: This month had a lot of items, but it did feel like it was missing that one hero item. I was a bit bummed that we didn’t get a POP figure this month – while it’s not a promise that they’ll include it, this was the first box since May of last year to not have one. They did stick to the theme nicely, but their theme spoilers also included a bunch of imagery and quotes from back to the Future – so I was also surprised to not find anything BTTF related.

What did you think of the February 2017 Powered Geek Box?

  1. Yeah, looking at the spoilers, I definitely would’ve expected lots of BTTF. Kind of a disappointing box…

    • I was definitely expecting something from BTTF.
