Geek Fuel doesn’t have themes, but you’ll know 2-3 franchises in each month before it ships. This month we got a hint that it was the biggest box yet – it definitely was!

You’ll get an information card with all of the details about the items in your box.

You’ll also get a mini magazine that features stories and interviews along with a fun shopping guide that I’m always jealous of!

Wonder Woman Shirt – Value $15?

The box starts off with a bang with this Gal Gadot Wonder Woman shirt! With the digital release of Wonder Woman arriving next week, it’s time to fall back in love with that movie. Overall, I like the graphic design of the shirt – it’s very much like a pin you might receive in a geek box.

Dorbz XL Groot – Value $17 on Amazon

This is the largest box from Geek Fuel ever – why? Because you’ll be getting 1 of 6 possible Dorbz XL figures!

I got Groot, but you could have received Rocket, Big Daddy (from Bioshock), Stay Puft Marshmallow Man, Ant Man, or Robin.

I was pulling for Ant Man or Stay Puft. But, with this being my first-ever Dorbz XL I’d be lying if I told you that I wouldn’t have been happy with any of these options.

Dorbz XL figures are 6 inches tall – the same size as the super-sized POPs!

Epic Enamels Super Edition – Value $5-10?

One of my favorite aspects of Geek Fuel is their presentation and fun packaging. These Epic Enamel pins always bring me back to browsing the aisles of my local department store (it was Hills for me).

You’d get Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Cyborg, The Flash, or Aquaman – who is the rare pin this month and limited to only 500.

OUTATIME Luggage Tage – Value $10-15?

Do you have a movie that you stop and watch if you’re channel surfing? For me, it’s definitely any of the Back to the Future movies, so this OUTATIME luggage tag is just pure fun for me.

It’s a flexible vinyl with a removable information slip – the slip itself is also covered by clear plastic when inserted back into the tag so you won’t have to worry about smudging your info.

Spacejacked Steam Game – Value $10

This month’s Steam game if a platformer/shooter – Spacejacked.

It’s got the level design of the original Mario Bros. NES games and the run and gun of a Mega Man or Contra! I should also note that it’s been quite a while since I’ve received a game that wasn’t both Mac and PC compatible – probably years now – this is super important for a Mac user like myself!

Verdict: If you’re a Funko collector like myself, there’s a good chance you’ll really enjoy this box for the mega hero item – I know I did. Outside of that, it did hit on all franchises and brands that I really love, so this one was right up my alley. Which Dorbz XL figure did you get?

What did you think of the August 2017 Geek Fuel?

  1. My fiancé bought me a six month subscription and this was my last month. I can definitely say it’s been worth it and when funds are available, I’ll re-subscribe.

    So here’s the weird story. The first day I wore the WW shirt, I was walking in Boston near Faneuil Hall and a man carrying a giant load of clothing ran past me. He dropped an article of clothing and I picked it up and noticed it still had a security tag on it. I ran after him and tackled him and proceeded to hold him until police and the shop owner he had just robbed showed up. I would’ve reacted the same way regardless of what I was wearing but a few people pointed to my shirt and said I must have been feeling the WW power.

    The point of it all is just to say that this is a great geek box every month, and I’ve loved it and been a little inspired by it.

  2. I got the Sdcc Rocket Raccoon, my problem with it though is that there isn’t a sticker that said it was the SDCC version.

  3. I got Robin 🙁

  4. Really disappointed. They sold Wonder Woman and the “Bigger box” together so much and it’s not even a WW item that makes them make it a bigger box… just a Dorbz… From the way they sold it I was expecting something like a WW shield replica (the box they showed in the ad would have fit one), now that would have been epic.. and worth it.

    • I’m with you on that. I renewed the subscription after they advertised an extra large box and a Wonder Woman item hoping for it to be something big WW related – like an extra large figure maybe or a small diorama, anyway something a bit more… epic. But as it turns out she’s just on a t-shirt and with an average, fairly unimaginative design too. As for the figure, my box still hasn’t arrived, but I’m really hoping for a Groot or Rocket.

  5. All I want is the Big Daddy. ;___; fingers crossed

  6. Yep, Ant-Man and Stay Puft are definitely the two I want!

  7. I hope, hope, hope I get Groot!!!
