Geek Fuel is a new subscription box that caters to fans of all things, well, geeky. Games, collectibles, toys — if it’s nerd-approved, you can find it in Geek Fuel.
There seems to have been a huge rise in this type of subscription box over the last year or so. With the success of a certain other “geek” box (*cough* Loot Crate *cough*), it became obvious that there’s a big demand out there for geek/gamer mystery boxes. No complaints here — my husband loves this stuff.
Geek Fuel boxes can include items such as t-shirts, action figures, comics, movie posters, toys, downloadable games, and more. They feature plenty of exclusive items and promise a total value of at least $40 in each box.
Monthly subscriptions are $17.90 (plus $6 shipping, so $23.90 total) or lower with multi-month commitments. 6 and 12 month subscriptions come with mystery bonus items! (Oooh!)
Alright… time for the Geek Fuel unboxing!
Let’s see what’s inside!
The big red Geek Fuel box. Diggin’ the cute little robot dude.
First look. (There’s my lil’ robot friend again!)
The box came with a mini mag featuring a list of their most anticipated new comic releases, a geek gift guide, and more. Oh yeah, the theme for January’s box is “Time”.
A 2-sided info card listed everything included, as well as a short description of each item.
“A Brief History of Time Travel” T-Shirt by Geek Fuel Armory – Clearly I’m not geeky enough because I only knew 2 of the references on this shirt (my husband knew them all). This is a Geek Fuel exclusive shirt. I asked my husband if he’d wear it and he said yes, so I’ll call it a win.
Doctor Who Dalek Monitor Mate by Bif Bang Pow – If you ever find yourself feeling lonely whilst you compute, here’s your solution. Just stick this Doctor Who Dalek bobble head dude on your monitor and let him nod his way into your heart. Bam! — Lonely no more!
Star Trek Desk Coaster – This is one of 4 different Enterprise and Bird-of-Prey blueprint design coasters sent to subscribers this month. It’s made of real glass with rubber feet on the bottom to prevent slippage. Cos no one likes slippage.
Mash-Up Magnet Featuring Iron-Ant (~$3.00?) – A Geek Fuel exclusive magnet featuring a mash-up of Iron Man and Ant Man. Who couldn’t use another magnet?
Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time Mints – Why use a breath mint when you can have a geek mint instead? This shield tin contains 100 teeny tiny mints guaranteed to thwart the stankiest of stank breath.
Full Mojo Rampage Download Code – Included here is a code for a free full download ($13 value) of Mojo Rampage, along with a vinyl sticker depicting one of the characters from the game. Since my husband only plays console games, we won’t be using this. Soooo… If anyone wants it (the code), just leave a comment on this post and it’s yours.
So there it is — January’s Geek Fuel unboxing. Overall, I think it was a fun box with a nice variety of items. My husband will probably use everything except the bobble head (not a Doctor Who fan) and the game code. As with any box that includes an exclusive t-shirt, the total value is surely well over the monthly subscription cost. Definitely a box to try if you’re into the geek/gamer genre.Browse more Geek and Gamer Boxes in my Subscription Box Directory

I signed up for a year for that Dalek alone!
My only concern with all the geek boxes is that they do appear to be pushing themselves on the wrong audience at times, and they end up alienating the real potential fans.
I have to agree with your husband, though I’m surprised he doesn’t want the game – it looks fun. Not all of us are Dr. Who fans, even though it seems most the geek subscription services throw in something from the series. I dig the shirts and games though. I’ll definitely be subscribing to Geek Fuel. Thanks for the insight!
Yeah, I guess it’s pretty impossible to please everyone all the time. That’s the chance you take with subscription boxes though. The mystery is part of the fun. 🙂
If you want the game code, let me know and it’s yours!
Hi, Would like the Mojo Rampage Code if still available. Thanks and keep up the good work! Favourite reviewer so far!
I’ll try to dig up both codes you requested later tonight! I’ll send them to the email you’re logged in with unless you want me to post them here. 🙂
To the email please. Thanks so much!
