My Geek Box is exactly as it sounds – a big box full of geeky stuff!
It costs from £19.99 a month, including postage, and contains a bunch of fun geeky things including a monthly t-shirt.
I’m familiar with quite a few of these type of boxes, but this on is a new one for me! The box itself is remarkably heavy and pleasingly large.
This is one reason why it’s heavy! An Officially Licensed Game Of Thrones Ceramic Mug.
It’s really rather large and sturdy, and the pattern showing the sigils of all houses is printed on both sides. It’s perfect for watching the final season of GoT,. You can fit an awful lot of tea in this mug, or whatever they drink in Westeros!
More weight from this Call of Duty Skull Glass.
This is such a fun item! It’s really heavy and thick, it’s big enough to keep you going with a lot of drink while you’re playing Call of Duty. The shape is also excellent, and rather sinister. This would look pretty good with beer in it!
Another GoT item, this time a notebook.
The quote The night is dark and full of terrors goes across both covers. There’s also an elastic band to keep it closed, and also a ribbon bookmark, which would make it particularly good as a journal.
A slight change of tone with this Metals Die Cast Hulk Figure. This is actually a nice collectible for any Hulk fans, the arms move and it’s pretty well painted. It’s also quite heavy, being metal.
A third Game of Thrones item now, a Sark Sigil USB Flash Drive. This is a nicely detailed wolf head, and the cover for the metal part itself fits well. It’s 4GB and small enough to pop into your pocket. It’s a fun little bit of fandom!
Finally, this month’s t-shirt, showing Pip-Boy from Fallout. This is a really fun shirt with a great design, plus it’s 100% cotton which is a big thumbs up!
There’s no list or menu in this box, but that doesn’t matter, it’s very clear what everything is.
I don’t think this is a themed box in any significant way, though I like the three Game of Thrones items because everyone is currently going nuts over the final season! It’s simply a box of cool geeky stuff.
It might seem a little bit strange to have two mugs, but they’er so different I don’t mind at all. I’m also really pleased that four of the items – mugs, USB stick, and notebook – have actual practical use. I love practical geek items.
All the items are of pretty good quality. A little light googling indicates that the value of the items in this box are way more than the price of the box, so you’re really getting a very good deal!
