#GeekFuel Review: October 2015

October's Geek Fuel box gets our money and our loyalty. Sorry/Not Sorry, Loot Crate!

Review by Matt Cummings

After a disastrous September Loot Crate, The USS SJF pulled out of port, searching for a new subscription box to feed our addiction. We were tired of Loot's decision to remove the t-shirt (our reason for joining in the first place), so we wanted a box that offered one without the pricey upsell for which Loot had become notorious. Luckily, we found an alternative right away, as Geek Fuel delivered with a great October box.

Before diving in, let's review the details:
  • The cost for a Month to Month is $17.90, $16.90/month for a 3-month subscription, $15.90/month for a 6-month tour and just $13.90/month for a one-year subscription.
  • Shipping $6.00 to the US, Canada, and at least a few other countries.

  • Rather than spend time taking the thing apart, let's allow the pictures to sell how cool this box is, and we'll provide some additional thoughts at the end:
    I'm In!
    Filled with enough high-quality coolness to more than justify the roughly $20 investment, Geek Fuel hits an outstanding double with a great shirt, an awesome pillowcase, rad Back to the Future swag, a Yondu Pop! that might be worth the entire monthly price, and all the attitude of someone who knows how to do a box right. This is where Loot Crate has failed, seeking profit over giving fans what they want. Fuel might pull a Loot one day (when the apocalypse arrives), but until then they have our love. If every box is at or near this quality, we'll be here for awhile. This box is highly recommended.

    What is the T-shirt? I do not recognize the alien guy thing. Is it a random picture or is the image lost on me?
