My Geek Box- “It's mine, I tell you, MINE!”

With so many 'Geek Related' subscription boxes out there to chose from, it can be hard to know which one to commit to. Here is your chance to see some of the items included in surprise boxes. MyGeekBox.co.uk is a UK company which means the boxes are cheaper to recieve for UK residents than US alternatives. They have a good offer to get you started (I got my first for just £10) and offer a consistent low price of £17.99.


You get 4-6 items per box.


So, what do you get for your money? 


Aprils box was packed full (literally bursting!)...



Both GeekFuel and LootCrate feature magazines telling more about the items, showing pictures and articles related to the products, this was something I missed in My Geek Box.


First up, BNIP, a cute green ghost- it's everyone favourite messy monster- 'Slimer!'. Most people have seen Ghostbusters so it's a good all-rounder, and its a pretty cool plush to have- it was made in 2015 and is part of the 'Monsters Everywhere' range. 


Next up is a sealed box from DC Comics- it is a figure from the kidrobot mini series, but which one is it! On the back of the box there seems to be around15 options, from the joker to superman. As I open the sealed silver packet with scissors I tell my partner I want Batman....



The t-shirt in this box is an epic design. It is Captain Americas sheild and it has been shattered. It is just a shame about the sizing, I went 'over large' with my size choices as i'd always rather have a big baggy PJ top then something too small.. but it seems it wasn't meant to be as it is just far too small! I thought i'd have problems with the US sizing, but it has actually been perfect. 



This months box included a Doctor Who item (just like this months GeekFuel is supposed to...) - it is the sonic screwdriver from the 10th doctor...it is a UV light and pen- pretty cool! This is sure to help on our summer adventures.



Also included is a brand new DVD of VHS2- a horror movie (at least part of it has the same director as The Blair Witch Project.) that focuses on two investigators who are searching for a missing boy- they find his collection of odd tapes and we are taken on a ride through some messed up things! Some it verges on weird psychedelic 'Old Boy' craziness, parts are reminiscent of '28 Days Later' or 'I am Legend' and parts are just plain taken from 'Signs' , but overall it is a good movie if you are a big fan of the Horror Genre. I found it to be an interesting approach as each segment (there are 4/5) is a self-filmed 'Cloverfield' camera effect. The movie starts really well, it has a great pace and a few good scares. However, it unfortunately stays true to the saying of starting high with only one place to go …. 4/10


Last up is issue number #1 of a comic called 'Empress'...from 'Icon's Mark Millar and Stuart Immonen, this comic is a story about the Earths first rulers, “These are the people who lived here before us.” It is quite fast paced and well illustrated as comic books go, as it is the 'pilot' there is a lot to get through and it needs to find its ground but overall it seems solid. There is also a preview of 'Jupiter's Legacy' at the back, from creator Frank Quitely.



You can order your own My Geek Box here. I found it to be amazing value- but i'm here for the Geekness, not to re-sell on Ebay! So, in the long run i'll be sticking with GeekFuel.
