Geek Box Showdown July 2015

Previously, on Geek Box Showdown: Nerd Block to the inaugural victory for best box and best item in June. Can they hold on to the top spot in July? Find out below!

Just a note before starting – Since geek boxes are including more and more exclusive items, it’s becoming harder to get a real value, so I figured I’d give a fair estimate of those items. Also, if the review has a value range – I took the high-end of the range.

Nerd Block Subscription Box Review + Coupon – July 2015 - items

Nerd Block ClassicRead the Full Review

The Cost: $19.99 plus shipping (Shipping is $8.75 to Canada, $9.50 to US, $12.50 Worldwide)

Number of items: 6

Value of items: $47

Exclusive Items: Cobra’s Motto T-Shirt, Ghostbusters Wallet, Mad Max Variant Cover, Spike Titans Vinyl Figure

Synopsis: This month’s them was Humanity’s Last Hope. I really like 4 of the 6 items I received. The Mad Max comic was a great read, and the mini Iron Man is on my desk as I’m writing this. The value was a bit lower than last month – but it was a good collection of geeky goodies! My favorite item was the Ghostbusters wallet!

Loot Crate Subscription Box Review & Coupon – July 2015 - items

Loot Crate – Read the Full Review

The Cost: $13.37 plus $6 shipping a month

Number of items: 7 (not counting the monthly pin)

Value of items: $72.99

Exclusive Items:Exclusive Batman ’66 Q-Pop FigureThe League of Regrettable Superheroes Variant Cover

Synopsis: This month’s them was Heroes 2. The value comes in well over the cost of this box. I absolutely loved 4 of the 7 items this month. the Q-Pop Batman is phenomenal, and it made me go look for more Q-Pop vinyls only to find very few available :(. Loved the Batman keychain, hardcover book, and the Steam game – Brawlhalla – has been my favorite Steam game from a box yet! This month, the Batman vinyl took the top spot for me!

Geek Fuel Subscription Box Review + Coupon – July 2015 - items

Geek Fuel – Read the Full Review

The Cost: $23.90 a month

Number of items: 6

Value of items: $40 (estimating the poster at $5)

Exclusive Items: All exclusive items this month!

Synopsis: This month didn’t seem to have a theme, at least I couldn’t find it on the card. I was excited for 2 of the 6 items this month, but I couldn’t play the Steam game, because it was PC only – so that was a disappointment for me. That being said – the comic was the item of the box for me, while I haven’t read it yet, I know it’s gonna be ultra enjoyable for me!

Power Up Box Subscription Box Review – June 2015 - all items

Power Up Box: Premium Box – Read the Full Review

The Cost: $19.95 + $6.95 shipping a month for the Deluxe Box, $29.95 + $9.95 shipping for the Premium Box

Number of items: 8

Value of items: $58.94

Exclusive Items: None

Synopsis: This box does not have a theme, although it’s very close to being a super hero/villain box. I was excited for 4 of the 8 items this month. I love the shirt and bobble head, and am excited to read the comic and use the playing cards! My favorite item this month is a tie between the shirt and the bobble head.


Favorite Box:  The winner for me was Loot Crate! It ended up having the highest value this month and had tons of fun items!

Favorite Item: My overall favorite item also came from Loot Crate – it was Q-Pop Batman ’66 Vinyl Statue!

  1. Loot Crate’s box looked awesome! I used to subscribe to them but have never gotten a box packed with such awesome. I am so jealous! :-). I did get the Nerd Block Classic box and the T-shirt and Spike filled me with glee! The Power Up box had an amazing T-shirt (do most of the boxes do mash ups because then there aren’t licensing issues?) and the playing cards looked awesome. Although that Iron Man looks wrong and as a plush lover I would gave been sad to see that in person. I’m not feeling the GeekFuel box.

  2. Giving some love to my GeekFuel box.

  3. I REALLLLLY want Geek Fuel’s T-Shirt this month (don’t have the box) but Loot Crate won. I loved the multi-tool keychain and hardcover book

  4. OMG I need that sweep the leg shirt!!!

  5. This is a fun review and I love the poll!

    I had to go with Loot Crate because we love a good heroes theme at my house. 🙂
