Get your disappointment on with MyGeekBox

Update: it seems My Geek Box read this review focusing on “I thought something might be missing“. So thanks for missing the point, pestering me on Twitter and generally wasting my time.

With some excitement I received the latest My Geek Box, after all it is “the must-have mystery subscription box of geeky goodness, hand-picked and sent straight to your door every month by our passionate team of Geek aficionados.”. One word? Disappointed.

It’s a good sized box and it has a lot of room for activities. I thought it might be missing something. So I’m going to talk about what’s in it in the same vein as it was put together – briefly and with little care.

There’s a tee shirt which I think is meant to be the Vulcan greeting but is a skeletal hand. Halloween related maybe?

AquamanUnder this underwhelming appetiser we have an Aquaman figure. I’m not big on DC and don’t really get Aquaman anyway but it seems reasonable quality.

We celebrate Sonic the Hedgehog’s 25th anniversary with a drawing.

Next some Marvel shoelaces which the rear of the packet proudly announces as an exclusive to Loot Crate (spoiler – it isn’t).

I’m losing interest to even describe stuff now but next is a comic boldly exclaiming “PANDORICA the exclusive prequel to the hit movie!”. I have no idea what movie it’s talking about and can’t be bothered to open it far less take a picture.

Five items.

This might be an off day for the company but I sure won’t recommend this to anyone.

Disappointed.
