Last month I posted about Chris’ “My Geek Box” that he received. Sadly it wasn’t that great but he wanted to stick with it and see what the next month brought. On Saturday his latest box arrived and even though it was 11 o’clock at night when he get home, I quickly urged him to open it up so I could snap some pictures. Please excuse the quality of the photos, as they were taken on my phone and at night, though I did go back and take a few new ones the next day.
The box felt pretty light and I had prepared myself for it to be disappointing. I have to admit it was a better box than last month, but sadly it still wasn’t great.
The contents of the box were:
- My Geek Box magazine
- Jason Pop! Funko figure
- Pumpkin Popping Candy
- Zombi Zity figure
- Zomblings blind bag
- Red t-shirt
- a poster
- Nightmare Before Christmas magnet
I didn’t take another picture of the magazine but it was rubbish anyway. Inside was 2 pages of cosplay stuff and 4 pages of games review and basically seemed like a waste of glossy paper. However the second thing out of the box was this awesome Jason Voorhees figure. We’re getting quite a collection of Pop! Funko now and what I didn’t tell Chris when he opened this, was that I’ve also bought him the Jigsaw figure from the Saw movies, for Chritstmas. This will go awesome with this little fellow.
Popping Candy is at least better than a Twinkie, but still pretty weird. I have no idea what this pumpkin flavour will be like but it sounds pretty gross to me. Next up is the Zombie Zity figure which seems pretty pointless to me. No doubt Chris will sit him on his desk upstairs but in by opinion, just a waste of time.
Speaking of a waste of time, the Zombling blind bag was pretty pointless too. This strange looking cow thing is what came out of the bag and I see even less point to this than the Zombie Zity thing. Needless to say it’s actually in the bin now (along with the magazine coincidentally).
Couldn’t decide if last night’s picture was better or if today’s was, so posting them both. Sadly the t-shirts seems to come VERY creased but this month’s was at least a better colour than last months yellow. Chris likes it and it looks less like a tent, so that’s a plus.
This poster is pretty good but sadly its not really our style. Also, as much as its great to be sent some good prints, its often a hassle to go out and buy frames to make them look good. At our age we’re too old to be putting posters up so really it would be nice to get a canvas or something you’d be proud to place on your walls.
Finally, the only thing I really like. A Nightmare Before Christmas magnet that is now on our fridge…
Anyway, once again, its not my box so it doesn’t really matter to me – but personally I’d still have been disappointed, even though I thought it was better than last month. The Pop! Funko figure is really all that saves this box, and a marginally better t-shirt. I have no idea if Chris will continue his subscription or not but I’m definitely sticking to “My Little Box” instead of geek boxes for now.
