Geek Fuel what a bold statement? Even though I can’t stand here and say it’s the best monthly subscription boxes for geeks because I haven’t tried any other subscription box other than Think Geek Capsule. However, I can say that their new EXP box which is a quarterly box is amazing but I couldn’t always say that. For those who have never heard of Geek Fuel, it is a quarterly subscription box that packed with about five geek related collectibles and a steam download code.
Now Geek Fuel started out as a monthly subscription box but two boxes into my subscription they decided to go every three months and the items within increased in size. The box always contains a themed T-Shirt, Theme canvas, Bobblehead character, Comic Character Pop figure, some geeky household items such as a Chef apian or salt shaker and a downloadable steam code.
Past Subscription Boxes
In the past, the boxes where much smaller and you got one every month. This is normal for subscription boxes such as Indie box or loot crate and I myself was ok with this. The items Within The Box would range in themes but I remember getting geek fuel magazine which they have done away with, there was a ready player one crystal keychain and there was a Dana Skully Pin from X-files. The box has items that are movie, tv, comic, and game related. There was a t-shirt, small vinyl figure, a collectible pin, keychain, and a downloadable steam code. Don’t forget to check out the video above to see what else I got in my first Free Geek Fuel box, take a look at some of the other videos on the We Deem Channel and Don’t forget to subscribe to keep informed of future videos.
Geek Fuel EXP
Geek Fuel has evolved and now it is calling itself Geek Fuel Exp. Instead, it being every month, it is not every three months and the items With The Box are now larger. The monthly version of the box you got about five smaller items and now in EXP, you are getting six items. You still get the T-Shirt, the downloadable steam code, and the vinyl figure but some things have changed. In the August Exp box, Geek Fuel gave us a large Predator Vinyl bobblehead figure and a large Vinyl figure from Q-Fig they dubbed #unicornselfie which you’ll have to head over to the channel and check that video it was hands down the best thing in the box.
Thoughts on Geek Fuel Exp?
At first, I was too impressed with the first edition of Geek Fuel Exp, don’t get me wrong the items Within The Box we cool but they just didn’t excite me and ultimately I end up selling them. At the time I just felt like I got a better deal with the monthly boxes than with Exp but then the August edition of Exp came out and I had a change of heart. The items contained within were far better, more impressive and made me feel like Geek Fuel gave me my monies worth. Two large vinyl figures, a t-shirt, an art canvas, video game themed salt/pepper shakers and a downloadable steam code. Now I’m starting to think Exp is far better, the way to go and far more exciting.
Geek Fuel Finally Thoughts
I think the question now is what do I think of Geek Fuel overall? Is it worth it? Is it better than other options out there such a Loot Crate? Overall, I think Geek Fuel steps their game up for the August box and I was impressed. The items contained in that box was amazing, I knew when I first saw them I would be able to part with them and this box made me feel I got my monies worth. For about $64 every three months I do think it is worth every penny if they keep up what they did with the August version of the Geek Fuel and I believe the Exp was the right move for all of us. Now do I think it is the better option then Loot Crate? Well I can answer that honestly, Loot Crate has been at this for a while, then have several different options varying in themes which is something for everyone and I have yet to subscribe to any of it. This is definitely a question I will have to revisit in the near future!
