Chris has had two boxes from “My Geek Box“, both of which have been a little disappointing. As such he decided to cancel, but a little too late for November’s. That means, yesterday his Geek Box arrived and of course I was there to snap a few pictures, to share them with you all. Typically, in my opinion, this is the best box so far…
As soon as Chris opened the box, my eyes went to the plush. I almost squealed, except for the fact that it doesn’t belong to me, but Chris instead!
This was the contents of the box:
- My Geek Box magazine
- 2000 AD magazine/comic
- Thunderbirds shot glasses
- Darlek plush (with noises!)
- Red Dwarf t-shirt
- Baker Street sign
- Sweets called Weirds (presumably like Nerds)
Neither of the magazines are particularly exciting, though I am amused by Simon Pegg with a moustache! We quickly moved onto the rest of the box, hoping it would be better.
*SQUEAL* Seriously, I love this. It’s squidgy and cute but it talks and I especially love the fact it says “you would make a good darlek” – hell yeah I would! Chris was actually kind enough to give this to me! Although he loved it himself, he isn’t actually a Doctor Who fan, so it’s now mine. Yippee!
This is mine now too! I’m a huge Sherlock fan, though more traditionally rather than the recent BBC series or even Elementary. That said I do love the Sherlock movies that star Robert Downey Jnr – even if the second one was a bit dire. I also love London, the tube stations, the street signs etc. Chris was more than happy to gift this to me, knowing I’d love it on many levels.
How awesome are these? Thunderbirds shot glasses. This set of 5, features each number/vehicle, from the TV series Thunderbirds. They’re proper glass too. I’m not sure if they’ll ever make it out of the box but they’re pretty damn cool.
Finally, a pack of sweets – Weirds – and the obligatory t-shirt. The Weirds are Dennis the Menace themed and in a weird flavour of Strawberry and Grape. The t-shirt, by far the best of three that have arrived. is Red Dwarf themed (awesome in itself). It’s also a good design in a really decent colour!
As I said, in my opinion, this is the best box out of the three he’s had. Typical really since he’s cancelled the subscription. All of the things that came (except maybe the magazines) are pretty decent. For the first time, it actually feels like value for money – well for Chris anyway, since it was his money. I know that we’ll get use out of everything (even if only in a display sense) but finally, a decent box – YAY!
