My Geek Box – November 2019

My Geek Box – November 2019

My Geek Box is exactly as it sounds – a box of geeky stuff! There’s no theme or menu, you simply get a selection of items from a huge assortment of geeky franchises.
It costs from £19.99 a month, including postage.
The box is rather large, and I think a standardized size, because the size of contents varies from month to month. There’s slightly less space than normal, which is good to see.
Funko Pop! figure – Shuri from Black Panther. Pop figures are always fun, and this one has great detailing in the costuming and hair.
It also includes a stand, which is necessary as the weight of the head and design makes it fall forward when standing on its feet.
My Geek Box seems to have quite a lot of Fallout merchandise at the moment. This is a Fallout Magnetic Bottle Opener. It’s the same Sunset Sarsaparilla design as the pin in the September box, but this is actually a fun and useful item. The magnet means it’s easy to keep to hand on the fridge.
This is a figurine of Commander Arun Flitt from the movie Valerian. 
I have to admit this movie completely passed me by, and it didn’t get great reviews, but the figure is nice enough, die cast resin with some nice detailing.
This month’s t-shirt is really cool. It’s obviously supposed to represent Jurassic Park, with the skull logo and the velociraptor, but while it isn’t official merchandise it’s a fantastic design, especially the yellow warning colour.
I have to say my heart sank at these final items.
Yet more from the Star Trek Graphic Novel Collection. This is the fourth month in a row (and also June) that two of these books have been included. This time they’re not even consecutive numbers.
I think this is incredibly poor form to have these books yet again. I’m very happy to have books, but I don’t want endless Star Trek. This seriously looks like they have overstock they’re desperately trying to get rid of, and it gives a very bad impression.

Our score: 7.0/ 10

As I said, I'm deeply unimpressed with the books. Enough already. Other than that, the items are pretty good, I like the bottle opener and the POP. I'm not really interested in the Valerian figure, it seems a little bit obscure, and I can't find any reviews of it anywhere on the internet so it doesn't seem to be a particularly popular item in geek culture. The t-shirt is my favourite, it's such fun and I adore Jurassic Park! So a bit of a mixed bag, but an improvement on last month.
