Geek Fuel Subscription Box Review – February 2015 Info

This box came with a card detailing the items included. (I like that they show variations you may receive of certain items).

Geek Fuel Subscription Box Review – February 2015 Tee

Batman Pacman Tee – Value $12?

This shirt is 100% Cotton and one of my husband’s favorite mashup tees he’s received in a while from subscription boxes. I also like that it isn’t a super bold color/design!

Geek Fuel Subscription Box Review – February 2015 Retro

Retro Magazine “Best of Year 1” Issue #0 – Value $10

Space Invaders Soap on a Rope – Value $9

This mini mag was made for Geek Fuel subscribers. The emphasis is on retro games, which I love. I have memories of trying to get cartridges to work by blowing on them, shaking them (basically everything I’m sure you’re not supposed to do), so it was fun to see an article about the best tools for working with cartridges.

This soap on a rope is fun – we’ll probably use it as a gift!

Geek Fuel Subscription Box Review – February 2015 Sticker

(Geek Fuel also included a pin and sticker for Read Retro).

Geek Fuel Subscription Box Review – February 2015 Glass

DC Comics Superhero Pint Glass – Value $7.50

Worms Downloadable Game w/ Gummies – Value $8

Subscribers will get one of 4 variations of the DC Comics pint glass: Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Batman, or a Mystery design.

The candy worms come with a unique code for a free download of the Worms game at SteamPowered. Looking at past boxes, it looks like a free game download seems to be consistent for all the boxes so far, so that’s something to keep in mind if you are thinking of subscribing.

Verdict: This box has a value of about $47. It isn’t my husband’s favorite box, but he’ll use about half the items and likely swap the rest. I’m not sure if Geek Fuel is the best fit for him, but we’ll give it another month or two to be sure!

  1. OMG I am IN LOVE with that Wonder Woman glass. I wish someone was on the swap site with it!

  2. I ordered this box but have not received it. I can’t find any contact info for them. Can someone help? TIA

    • [email protected] – you will see that email address when you click on “contact us” the very bottom left hand side of their homepage.

  3. I have not received this box yet. I haven’t been able to find any contact information. Can anyone help? TIA

  4. I like this box! Im not a huge gamer but my husband is. I think he’d like all of these things. I have so far only tried Infinity crate, which I haven’t even recieved yet due to the international shipping. I really appreciate items in these boxes that are useable and have a function other than display (shirt, soap, glass). I do love my funkos but I think the buttons and stickers are dumb, which is the big reason I’ve stayed away from 1up Box. And game codes are great.

  5. Geek Fuel is one of my favorite geek and gamer boxes. It’s such a fantastic value and they send great quality items.

  6. I like geek fuel. The shirts are always great quality, and are wearable for many age groups. I’ve never liked shirts that the graphic takes up most the shirt. The selection of items in this box is cute. My only issue is when I opened the package to look at the gummy worms, I noticed they are made in China – yuck. I’ll be skipping eatting those.

  7. I wish I ordered this box because the theme appeals to me. I need to show my teenager the t-shirt.

  8. I’ve been very impressed with the last couple months of Geek Fuel. The T-Shirts are great quality and very original, and everything else they send (at least so far) has been excellent.
    The “mystery” glass this month was “The Evolution of Batman” showing the different bat symbols through the years.

  9. Personally, I think Geek Fuel is one of the best for the game codes alone. Their shirts and items are great, but there are several “gamer” boxes and this is the only one that consistently seems to send game codes. I get 1Up and Arcade Block, which you would think would include codes, but no. As a hardcore gamer, I feel like gaming should be represented more in these boxes somewhere. I would like to see it in the gamer boxes, obviously, but Geek Fuel is being proactive and addressing a huge niche that is not being touched for some reason. Kudos to them. And I love that they’re Steam codes, not console specific, because that’s another way to hit everyone. Steam is free and can be downloaded to any computer.
