Geek Fuel EXP January 2019 - Volume 3 Info Card

The info card is HUGE – it’s like the size of a full-size calendar – and full of details about each item.

Geek Fuel EXP January 2019 - Doctor Strange Tshirt The Mystic Art 3

The Mystic Arts T-Shirt – Value $15?

This month’s featured exclusive t-shirt features Doctor Strange. I’ve always loved the designs around this character – especially when you get a good look at everyday life through his eyes in the comics – while this doesn’t entirely capture that, it does capture that great artwork around the spells used throughout the stories.

Firefly PIN Palz – Value $15-20?

If you were a subscriber to their previous monthly subscription – these should look really familiar! I was excited to see the return of PinPalz in this box – these were always a fun little take on a popular franchise, and usually had some great nostalgic packaging.

I got Wash and Zoe – who did you get?

Masters of The Universe – 2x Exclusive Keshi Figures Back + Battle – Tats Tattoo Pack – Value $10-15?

Super7 is a company that is really bringing a ton of nostalgia back through their old-school figures.

This Geek Fuel exclusive gave you a chance to get 2 of 3 little Masters of the Universe figures and their matching stickers – I got He-Man and Beast Man. These are small figurines – each stand only 1.5 inches tall.

Incredible Hulk #1 Canvas Art – Value $15-20?

Geek Fuel has been crushing it with this little canvas series they have going. Each canvas is about 6×9 – and, so far, each has included a first-appearance comic cover of a specific character. This quarter featured The Incredible Hulk.

Lord of The Rings Mini GeekiTikis – Value $20-25?

GeekiTikis are pretty hot right now. At first, I wasn’t really a fan of them, but they have grown on me over time – I actually really love my Rick and Morty GeekiTiki – so I was excited to unbox these.

This exclusive set features Frodo and Gollum. These are great to use at your desk for toothpicks, paperclips, or even pencils/pens.

Masters of The Universe Battle Tats Tatoo Pack – Value $10?

Coming back to the Masters of the Universe franchise, you’ll get a set of 11 temporary tattoos. Something about temporary tattoos definitely screams nostalgia for me – they always remind me of something I’d try to get from those quarter machines at your local grocery store.

The Art of Mondo Book – Value $30 based on $40 hardcover

This was far and away the coolest item in the box – and maybe my favorite item from Geek Fuel EXP so far.

This is a soft cover version of the Art of Mondo and features over 300 pages of incredible artwork from some of my favorite movies and franchises – definitely a keeper as a coffee table book.

Geek Fuel EXP January 2019 - Greekfuel Doors 1

Geek Fuel EXP January 2019 - Greekfuel Doors 2

Don’t Open The Doors Steam Game – Value $11 (right now is on sale for under $4!)

Don’t forget to snag your quarterly Steam game – this delivery features ‘Don’t Open The Doors’.

It is very much a mixture of that old-school type of game map with some upgraded graphics.

To finish the delivery off with style, they include an homage to the late, great, Stan Lee!

Verdict: After 3 deliveries of Geek Fuel EXP, I think I’m liking it much more than their classic monthly delivery. Yes, it arrives less often, but I just love digging through this big ol’ boxes of goodies – and they’ve done a great job of getting great items for each box. What do you think after the first few deliveries from Geek Fuel EXP?

  1. Ick…? What? Who in there right mind would buy this? $70? For key chains & pins?

    You can buy yourself a nice figure for that price each month and grow an epic collection, and if you start to hate them sell it on eBay most of the time, they go up in price like the Kotobukiya Bishoujo!

    This is such a waste of money when you can do something better with it!!

  2. Personally the monthly geek fuel used to be one of my favorite boxes but I can’t get behind this one. It’s like if you don’t like the franchises your screwed at least the prior feel fuel mixed it up a bit more

    • Agreed. It seems to be nice stuff, but I haven’t hardly liked any of the franchises they’ve done. And the few things I did like ended up being the smallest part of the box. And they seem to be doing the same kind of theme repeatedly to me.
      I will say the quality of the stuff was good when I got it, and your reviews indicate better quality…but that’s not worth much if I don’t like it. There hasn’t been a single item I’ve seen reviewed from it and thought “Darn, I wish I still had that subscription”
