Yay! It’s that time of the month again – no, not that time – the halfway point of the month marks the arrival of yet another My Geek Box!
This is a fun-filled subscription box that manages to pack a mini comic-con within its cardboard confines.
July’s theme is Nemesis.
I was not disappointed.
This is my new favourite mug. I’m not sure if I want to use it in case it transforms while I’m drinking my coffee, but it’s way cooler than my Hello Kitty mug.
And then there’s Davros. I thought it really strange that the MyGeekBox seemed heavy when I picked it up but after lifting him out I understood why – he’s pretty solid! So much weight for a little figurine. The details are great too – all the tiny little dials and buttons are finely painted, he looks tremendously wicked.
I’m really happy with the little knick-knacky bits that are in this months box too. Usually theres things like badges or magnets and something handy like a bottle opener or a wallet (I’ve been using my Marvel wallet from April’s box a lot). This month has a coaster, a card holder, and a notepad. The coaster I won’t use (it’s too good to ruin with drink stains) but I can see the note pad coming in really handy, I’m pretty sure my boss is fed up of finding my scribbled notes in random places and having to stuff them into my drawer – but I may have to keep a close eye on it since she’s a pretty big fan of Breaking Bad.
I have deliberately left the best thing til last – the t-shirt.
The past few month’s t-shirts have been awesome, although most I wont wear as they are slightly on the tight side for me. When gifting the original subscription at Christmas mum chose the largest women’s size available – unfortunately this is the equivalent of about a size 14-16, which I am not. I was starting to get a little disheartened that I was missing out on the best part of the subscription. Fortunately My Geek Box have a fantastic customer service team and after a query on sizing they changed it over for me. For those interested I get the men’s XL which is the equivalent of a women’s size 18, possibly roomier (I like my tees baggy), if you like your tees slightly fitted a men’s Large will also do the trick.
This t-shirt really made it for me. I love Resident Evil. I love all things zombie/mutant. I can’t wait to get this on! I’m going to wear this to work. I’m going to wear it to my Grandparent’s house. I’m glad no one judges me on my choice of attire. To my face, at least.
So there it is, a neat little package of geeky goodness shipped to your front door. If you take the time to price everything they pack in individually you can really see how they make it worthwhile, and since they are based in the UK there’s no customs charges to worry about.
