Geek Fuel doesn’t have themes, but you’ll know 2-3 franchises in each month before it ships.



Each month includes a card that details each item in your box.



They also include a mini magazine every month. Inside, you’ll find exclusive interviews and content along with more detail about the items in the box.


ED-209 Shirt – Value $15?

This month’s exclusive shirt comes from Robocop and features ED-209!



I’m loving this Robocop shirt, but I’d also take anything Robocop related since I love the movie! The men’s shirt comes in this darker blue, while the women’s cut tee comes in a light, baby blue.

ED-209 seems like a real challenge for Robocop until you find his biggest weakness: Stairs.

Wizard Wear Winter Scarf – Value $10-15?

The next exclusive item was a Harry Potter themed scarf.


It sports the classic Gryfinndor colors.


The scarf is 95% Acrylic and 5% Spandex and did not react well to being steamed. It really just crinkled up. The scarf was also a bit short – it won’t wrap twice around comfortably – overall, I was a disappointed with this one.



Epic Enamels Pin: Droid Edition – Value $5-10?

This little robot is the geek fuel mascot – this time it takes the form of R2D2!


We received an Indiana Jones Droid pin last month – so this may, or may not, be an ongoing inclusion.



The pins are really solid and well made – and easily have the best packaging for a pin I’ve seen in any box.


The World According To Iron Man Book – Value $17 on Amazon

You received either an Iron Man or Thor book – I got Iron Man.



I’ve received a bunch of these “World According To…” books – but these are bigger than the older books. Like the others, they have 3D elements to them – like this Iron Man suit that jumps off the page.



It’s got some removable pieces as well.


8-Bit Gift Wrap – Value $10?

We received this gift wrap last December as well.



It’s the same paper as well year – but I don’t think the gift recipient will hold a grudge.


Caveman Craig Steam Game – Value $10.99

This month’s game is Caveman Craig. It’s downloadable on Steam for both PC and Mac!

This is a unique strategy and survival game that pits you against fellow cavemen and dinos!

Verdict: I thought this month was pretty good for Geek Fuel. I really love the shirt this month, and I love trying out a new Steam game every month. Geek Fuel has had some great shirts lately – so the value is usually covered between the shirt and game! My biggest disappointment was the scarf this month – it was a good idea to include a Harry Potter item – but the odd size and shrinking material made it the low point for me.

  1. Any word on what the bonus Star Wars item is?

    • I haven’t heard – this is a recurring subscription, so we didn’t receive the bonus item.

    • I chose the Star Wars extra pack program for November (Black Friday bonus) and I got a Vader Down variant edition comic book from Marvel (with a certificate of authenticity), a Boba Fett sticker and Admiral Ackbar’s “It’s a Trap!” pillowcase. Not that thrilled with the sticker, but the pillowcase and the comic book were very nice. So you can probably expect some of those.

  2. As excited as I am because that’s my house and we hardly ever get represented, yellow and black is the Hufflepuff house (which is Newt Scamander’s house). The Gryffindor colors are scarlet and gold

    • Sorry if the picture made it look black, but the colors are a burgundy and gold.

      • aww, that’s a little disappointing. I thought it was a tie in with Fantastic Beasts 🙁
