Geek Fuel is now Geek Fuel EXP! EXP is a quarterly subscription box filled with tees, hoodies, comics, and goodies - they promised $100 in value for every box.
Geek Fuel used to always feature a Steam game in their boxes - just a heads up, that isn't the case anymore! UPDATE: The EXP box WILL feature a Steam game with every delivery - they will be delivered via email, and the game has yet to be sent out for Volume #1.
This box was sent for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).

Geek Fuel EXP Review Volume #1
This box was fully loaded and HEAVY! The first shipment comes with 7 items across 7 different fandoms.
For even a bit more of a surprise, a lot of the items came in their own little containers!
Pop them open to reveal the items!
The info card is HUGE - it's like the size of a full-size calendar - and full of details about each item.
The Wade-Y Bunch T-Shirt - Value $15?
8 Deadpools on one shirt - yes, please! I love the idea of Deadpool in the Brady Bunch scenario as well - he can really show off his character range.
The back even has a little Deadpool logo on the upper neck.
Let's just take a second to acknowledge the greatness of this packaging!
Both sides of the packaging have a little extra Bob's Burgers flare and on the inside...
Bob's Burgers Makin' Apron - Value $20?
I am really into this big, bold, Bob's Burgers graphic!
It's really well made - the material feels very durable.
How awesome does it look!?
Again - the packaging is just top notch. It really adds that little bit more to the unboxing experience - it's like opening a big gift full of little gifts.
Cowabunga Pizza Cutter - Value $15-20?
Geek Fuel felt like it was getting away from some of the great exclusives they've had in the past - so it was such a great unboxing experience to find this awesome exclusive in the first EXP!
What better way to cut the turtles' favorite food than with Rafael's sai inspired pizza cutter!
It definitely feels well-made, like all of the items in the box, too.
GITD Night King Titans Vinyl Figure - Value $5-10?
This item was one of the only items spoiled ahead of this box shipping - it's a 3-inch exclusive glow-in-the-dark variant of the Night King.
If you're familiar with Titan vinyl figures, then you know exactly what you're getting. This is their body style for all of their vinyl figures.
The Geek Fuel box even inverts to give you the castle background scenery for your figure.
It looks very cool in the dark!
Wolverine #1 Comic Cover Canvas - Value $15-20?
I love me some canvas comic art - so this item was speaking my language.
It's the cover of Wolverine #1 on stretched canvas - it's about the same size as a typical print you'd get in a geek box - but this is much higher quality and ready to display.
Again, all of the material is high quality.
And it arrives with the hook for hanging it up. On the case, it mentions this is a part of a "Canvas Collection" - so I hope we see more in future boxes.
LEGO Star Wars "Chronicle of the Force" Collectible Book & Figure - Value $12-17 on Amazon
The only non-exclusive item is this big, 9x11, LEGO Star Wars book.
It wouldn't be LEGO without a minifigure!
Here's a better look at the minifigure itself
There are about 100 pages full of Star Wars lore told with LEGO characters.
This could be a fun coffee table book or a great way to introduce the younger generation to The Force.
Planet of the Apes Pin Palz - Value $15-20?
I used to value their single Pin Pals around $5-10 - with this being a double set + button pack, $15-20 felt fair.
You'll get a mini ANSA button in your pack.
Then, everyone gets 2 of 6 possible pins - with one rare variant in the bunch - did anyone get it?
Verdict: My values add up to around $122 for the first-ever EXP Geek Fuel box - that leaves a bunch of room for value interpretation to still hit that $100 guarantee. On top of the value, I was happy that everything felt very well made - if you're going to shell out $65 for a box, then it should feel high quality and without filler - I think they did that with their first box.
