Geek Me Box Subscription Review – November 2014 Tee

Pac Man Sticky Notes – Value $5

Both of these items are pretty awesome – and I think my husband is claiming both of them for his desk! (Subscribers either get the ghost or Pac Man post its).

Geek Me Box Subscription Review – November 2014 Mystery

Kid Robot Street Fighter 2-Pack Figures – Value $10

This figure set comes with one figure revealed and one mystery figure. (I should have taken a picture of the opened bag, but this is the mystery one we received).

Geek Me Box Subscription Review – November 2014 Megaman

Minecraft Gold Nuggets – Value $1?

Mega Man E-Tank Energy Drink – Value $4.50

These Minecraft repackaged Hershey’s chocolates would probably make a great stocking stuffer. I didn’t try the MegaMan energy drink, but it seems to get good reviews on Amazon!

Verdict: I think Geek Me Box has been one of my husband’s favorite new geek subscriptions this year – they always seem to send out stuff he loves. The value was good this month too – almost $50. What do you think of the November Geek Me Box?

  1. Chris,

    Thanks for listing all the boxes you’ve been trying. It’s the first comprehensive list I’ve seen of Geek boxes. I can’t wait to check out more of them.

  2. Do they send a T-shirt every time with this box?

  3. I joined too late to get the November box, I am waiting impatiently for the December box to ship. I have also been trying to subscribe to or at least watch reviews of all of the geeky boxes I can find. One thing I have been hoping is that you might be able to add a Geek theme category here. This is a list of all of the one’s I am currently trying. So Far, I’ve gotten November’s LootCrate and NerdBlock both of which I really enjoyed, particularly the shirts. The rest, I am waiting for my first box:
    1Up Box, GeekMeBox, InfinityCrates, LootCrate, MyGeekBox, My Geeky goodies, NerdBlock, Quarterly Co Toys and Collectible Box

    I have also beel looking at some that also do geek boxes, but that don’t follow the standard subscription model. The first are one’s I’ve got stuff coming from, the second, I am still considering:

    CollectibleGeek, HeroCrate.

    The F Box from fugitive Games, J and K Stuff’s Boxes of Stuff.

    I am interested in finding out about any other services to consider. I am pretty much at my limit, or probably a bit past it, but I figure I can try out all of the interesting ones for a couple of boxes and then cut it down to my favorites. From what has been posted on a lot of the sites leading up to this month’s boxes, the holiday season might be the best time to splurge and join a few extra services for their Christmas boxes. I am already glad that I am around for the December LootCrate and that I caught the special grab block from NerdBlock.

    Anyway, thanks for all of the reviews. I fond out about more of the sub box services here than I have at any other review site.



    • I got Loot Crate, Nerd Block, Arcade Block, My Geeky Goodies, Geek Me Box, 1 Up Box, Gizmo Crate (which I cancelled immediately and strongly don’t recommend), and Otaku Crate for the boyfriend. Originally he had only asked for Loot Crate, but having experienced the different boxes, his favorite (the one box he chose to keep) was Arcade Block. If you are a gamer, I’d recommend that you try Arcade Block. He has loved every box from Arcade Block so far. He’s not much of a Walking Dead/ Star Trek/ Firefly/ Dr. Who fan.. so a lot of the items in Loot Crate, Nerd Block, and My Geeky Goodies were a miss for us. (We also like the Funko Pop figures, but we’re not going nuts collecting them.) Geek Me Box and 1 Up Box both do a great job, and 1 Up Box especially for a lower price, does really well. I was lucky enough to lock in the discount that the initial subscribers got.. So we’ll be keeping Arcade Block and 1 Up Box. I’m also secretly very tempted to uncancel Geek Me Box…

      I also would not recommend Otaku Crate. Between this, that, and the other thing, what I originally expected to be a $25 box (that’s what I signed up for) became a $40 “regular” box, and with shipping and taxes and fees, I ended up paying over $50. There was more than $50 worth of products in the box, but none of them were really exciting for my otaku… If you have money to burn and want more Japanese anime related stuff, it’s fine, but if you’re a real otaku, I think it’s better to get the specific things you want (figures, comics, paraphernalia, etc).

      • I avoided GizmoCrate after reading some reviews and watching a couple of unboxing videos. I considered Arcade Block, but I am more a retro gaming fan. I lost too much of my vision to actively game anymore back around 1999 or 2000, so my interest in newer game franchises is more vicarious than anything else. A lot of my family are WoW players and it is a type of game that would have been right up my alley, so I keep up with how all of them are doing at the game, but don’t collect any game swag and such myself. When I run into retro themes like Mario and Zelda or early Final Fantasy, even back to Atari and early arcade gaming, I am right there, but I figured that over time, the gaming dedicated boxes would offer more to my younger brothers or my nephew. I was leery of the Otaku box for some of the same reason. Though I would like to be a subtitle only fan, I don’t understand enough Japanese, so subs are lost on me and I can’t read manga anymore, so I decided I would stay away from any boxes that might offer me subbed anime or manga I would have to get someone to read for me and I went with Okashi Connection for the snacks. My first box is on its way from them. Wish it wouldn’t be so costly to add the Old British candy box and the German Candy boxes as I am fond of trying snacks from all over the world aalong with all of my geek hobbies.

  4. Do they ask what size t-shirt you want with these geek subscriptions? Or is it just a random size?

    • You get to let them know your size when you sign up!

      • Most also have a pretty good range of sizes, and at least a few offer fitted men’s and Women’s sizes as well as unisex. I’ve found it really easy to get shirts the way I like them as I prefer lots of room, Xl generally fits, but I like 3XL or at least 2Xl for roominess and room for shrinking in the wash. I’ve only had to settle for 2XL a couple of times and only been charged extra for the larger size a couple of times and then only an extra couple of bucks. considering that all of the shirts I’ve gotten so far are very good material that did shrink quite a bit, I am very glad of this.
