My Geek Box - November Review

My Geek Box

This month in my quest to find my perfect geek box subscription I received The Geek Box.   Now, before I go into the contents of this box, I must say I wasn't that impressed with the communication with this box.  The Facebook page doesn't appear to engage with fans as much as other boxes I've received, the build up to when the box was being sent out was very minimal but you do get a notification from My Geek Box to say when the boxes have been packed, and one from Royal Mail to say when it's coming, other than that, no real excitement from the company in my opinion.

So, what's in the box? (I honestly can not say that without hearing Brad Pitt in my head and doing a very lame impression)!

Well from the banner, I think it's pretty obvious that the theme was Best of British, and I will post the contents in order of my preference of show rather than my preference of gift.

Before we get into the shows, we have a monthly My Geek Box Magazine, which mainly had a review on a game.

The British Sci-Fi comic 2000 AD - never read it, never got into but still I'm sure I can find a use for this.

Next up were some shot glasses with Thunderbirds theme, rather random!  I did catch the odd episode of F.A.B. and always loved it when you saw a real hand grabbing something out the cupboard - classic.  I've taken a picture of the back, as it gives a better image then the front.

3 items down, 4 to go.....

Next up is an item related to a comic that I did read - all the time!  Beano Weirdos.

Maybe due to the fact my mother used to make me watch Sherlock ALL the time, is possibly why I now don't watch it at all!  Don't get me wrong, I do enjoy Sherlock - I just seriously think I've had my whole life's quota!  Saying that, the street sign - MAJOR COOL!!

Now, the only reason why the T-shirt is not at number 1 is because after about season 6 I started to lose interest in the program - but I still to this day love watching the early episodes of Red Dwarf.

In in at number 1, gets it's own Instagram video shot as I love him so much!!  Of course it's Dr Who!!

So there we have it, my 7 items in My Geek Box.  What do you think?  I must say I'm not that keen on this box, it didn't give me the excitement that the Infinity Crate did and so in order of preference with regard to my geeky subscription boxes I would say :

Number 1 - Infinity Crate   £16.99
Number 2 - Nerd Block approx £21
Number 3 - My Geek Box £14.99

Kawaii Boxes is also a fantastic box and deserves its own mention.

I'm not going to dismiss My Geek Box after 1 order, I'm going to give it one more go before cancelling my subscription and moving on, so the order may change again next month!

From my original post here, you can see I have so so many yet to try and will be cancelling My Geek Box after Christmas now and maybe going with another UK based box : Qwerki Box
