Well, it was a lovely surprise coming home to this box. It is definitely larger than previous boxes I have had (almost twice the size of a Loot Crate box) so I was eager to see what was in it. Definitely worth the wait.
The box itself was rather plain with a printed GeekGasm logo stuck on. Not the best or most professional presentation but I figured appearance isn’t everything…
On opening the box I found it to be neatly packed with orange tissue paper over the contents. The items in the box were in a word – awesome!
- Big Bang Theory Bazinga Mug
- Big Bang Theory Tattoos
- Game of Thrones Coasters
- Transformers Popping Candy
- Marvel small badges
- Marvel theme Kinder Egg
- Tab App Marvel Heroflix starter pack
Definitely a good selection for geeks, young and old. I loved the Big Bang Theory items as I’m a huge fan (who isn’t?)! The Bazinga mug is a striking blue and seems well made. Only downside to it is you can’t put it in the dishwasher. A fab mug though! The tattoos are a great novelty gift too to keep fans of any age amused. My daughters and I will have fun with these.
Second fave item is definitely the Game of Thrones coasters. They look great in the living room! They’re cork based with the house crests on. Perfect for any fans out there!
The popping candy is an old favourite of mine, which I don’t see in shops often. I can honestly say I’ve never found Tranformers popping candy before. The bag contained a few small packets of popping candy in different flavours. They all tasted great and reminded me of Pop Rocks, the kids loved them too :) The Kinder egg didn’t last long either. We found a Wolverine in our one and as you can tell by the pic, the chocolate didn’t last.
The Marvel badges/buttons were great quality too featuring favourites such as Deadpool, Spider-Man, etc. They’d look great on any fan’s clothes, bags, etc
Last but definitely not least, Heroflix Superheroes starter pack – I hadn’t heard of these at all before now to be honest. They are from a company called TabApp. The pack contains little figures (Ironman, Captain America and Thor) with bases which can be twisted. The figures are used with an ipad app and you place the figures on your ipad while the game is running to activate your heroes. I tried using these with the ipad, but found them fiddly and unless you like changing your character a lot, you seldom use them. They do look good as ornaments when not in use I have to say. These are a great item for teenagers or younger kids but unless you have an iPad, or access to one you can’t really use them for their gameplay.
Conclusion – this is definitely one of my favourite geek boxes so far! The outside of the box was nothing special but what the outside lacks, GeekGasm make up for inside the box. The items appealed to all ages and fans rather than being centred around themes and games. The GeekGasm box I received was the Bronze box and although it’s the cheaper package, I can definitely say you get value for your money and a great selection. The favourite in my box for me, was the Bazinga mug. My daughters loved the temporary tattoos and popping candy and my husband’s fave was the coasters as he’s a huge fan of Game of Thrones. There’s definitely something for everyone, so I’m sure the larger boxes will be good value too. Worth signing up for :)
