Unboxing May 2015’s Geek Fuel

Geek Fuel is a monthly comic con in a box subscription service that will run you $23.90 a month.  If you order multiple boxes at once though you will be hooked up with various discounts and bonuses. Is May’s box worth the cash?  You be the judge.


The first item to catch my eye when I opened this crate was a bag of Plants Vs. Zombies 2 enamel pins.  Within the bag are four individually blind bag sealed pins.  This is a neat item, but I must confess I am not the biggest fan of this franchise.  Next up was a Dynamic Forces Variant cover of Secret Wars #1 complete with a COA listing it as a limited run of 15,000.  While I already had this issue, its still a cool copy to have.  Speaking of cool, a geek fuel koozie  which is currently wrapped around a microbrew in my beer drawer was also included. (If you do not have a beer drawer, I recommend you get one)


As usual you also get a mini mag with facts on the goods in this months crate and a few interesting but brief articles.  Also there is a download code for the steam game Square Heroes as well as temporary tattoos of the cast of Square Heroes.  While I was not a big fan of last month’s MMO game, simply because I dislike MMO’s this one is perfect for me.  It’s a worms esque fast paced shooter.  The type of game that is easy to learn and difficult to master.


By far the coolest item this month is a Geek Fuel exclusive Weeping Angels Doctor Who t shirt.  This parody mashup even includes a faux touring schedules for the angels.


The final item included this month while not exclusive is incredibly rare.  It is a limited edition Yoda poster by Terribly Odd.  While I’m unsure where is is going to end up, it is definitely a very hang-able image.

So was this month’s Geek Fuel worth the $23.90 price tag to you.  While the items included clearly exceeded that value it all comes down to if you like the franchises represented.  But what I can say is that this not not a cheap box full of filler.
