I am so excited to share this box with you because Geek Fuel is brand new to the subscription box scene and this is their first box, ever! They started off on Kickstarter and their campaign was successfully funded. I really wish I had known about them back when their Kickstarter was still running because I totally would have backed them.
Information card (I actually never read these until I’ve finished going through my box because sometimes I just want to dig into it all and see what I can find). 😄
My eye was immediately drawn to this item because it was in a red velvet drawstring pouch. It had to be something awesome, right?
I pulled out a deck of cards and was immediately excited because… I collect cards! People collect magnets, post cards, or other small knick-knacks from their travels but I get decks of cards. I think my card obsession started with Pokemon and then Yu-Gi-Oh. 😄
PS: this deck of cards smelled amazing – you know, that new, mint condition card smell when you pull them out of their packaging.
The Princess Bride Playing Cards Deck By Albino Dragon – Okay. OKAY. This is my favorite item in the box. The Princess Bride is one of my favorite movies ever so I was totally geeking out when I saw this. Honestly, this makes the entire box for me because this is now one of my favorite deck of cards that I own. Why?
Because the illustration are GORGEOUS.
Seriously gorgeous. *____* I want to rewatch the movie now.
As you wish.
Hello! My name is Inigo Montoya! You killed my father! Prepare to die!
Star Wars Pez Candy – YESSSSS. STAR WARS. I will happily take ANY Star Wars item. 😀 I think this was an awesome item to include since it could make for a great stocking stuffer for any Star Wars fan! There was variation in which Star Wars character you could receive. Hehehe, I was secretly hoping for Darth Vader and now he’s mine. 😄 I’ve actually never collected Pez dispensers but the candies aren’t too bad when you want something sweet. 😉
I’ll probably eat all the strawberry candies first. :p
*cue the imperial march*
Halo Alpha Mega Bloks Mini Figure Mystery Pack – I’ve never played Halo so I honestly don’t know anything about the figures you could have received. 😄 But I do like building figures and I definitely like mystery items within a mystery box. (I guess I could have saved this for my cousin, who does (did?) play Halo, but he’s probably too old for these things now haha).
The 8 different figures.
This was the figure I received – it’s the second one on the top row!
Eye of Sauron Poster by Kitchen Overlord – Aww, this is both cute and creepy! I can totally see this as a recipe to make for Halloween or a LOTR-themed party. 😄 I actually think this is a pretty good recipe because it’s easy to make and the end product actually looks like it would be tasty. Plus, the super cute step-by-step illustrations are great to help you along if you get stuck on a certain part.
Not gonna lie, I laughed at the McDonald’s = Mordor. 😄
Limited Edition Alpha Geek Fuel Graphic Tee – When they say limited edition, they mean it! I got #113 out of 300. So now you know how many December boxes are being sent out. :p (hurry and grab one for yourself or someone you know before they sell out completely!) I think it’s pretty cool that they actually numbered them so that you can see for yourself what limited edition means. 😉
Armor Hunters #1 by Valiant – This is an exclusive chrome cover first issue of Valiant’s crossover event, Armor Hunters. I’ll be honest, I have no idea what this is about (for all the books I’ve read, I never really got into comics or graphic novels) but the imagery is pretty amazing. See for yourself in the photo below!
They also included a really well-thought out magazine in the box! It’s their launch issue so I won’t spoil the content. 😉
(oh and they included a cute Geek Fuel robot/mascot sticker! It reminds me of Wall-E, haha)
The December 2014 Geek Fuel box!
Overall enjoyment: This was such a fun box to go through. 😀 I fell in love with that deck of cards based on The Princess Bride and that by itself just really made the box for me. I don’t think any other geek/nerd box out there would have included a The Princess Bride item! Of course, Geek Fuel also won me over with that Star Wars Pez Dispenser and that creepy/cute LOTR poster-recipe. (I also don’t think I’ve seen many boxes out there sending LOTR-related items!)
There’s still time to get this box! Sign up today to get the December box. 😀 (seriously – I cannot recommend The Princess Bride card deck enough) Below is a quick screenshot of their cost breakdown per subscription length!
