#GeekFuel Review: March 2016

March's Geek Fuel sets its sights high and mostly achieves them. Mostly.

Review by Matt Cummings

As the dead of winter gives way a breath of fresh spring air, we couldn't help but wonder why the same love didn't happen for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Hoping the superhero team up would lead to big bankrolls, Geek Fuel and other subscription boxes hopped onboard. But just like them movie, March's box achieves only some of its goals.

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.

  • We use QUALITY and TIMING to base our reviews, so let's see how this box stands up. As always, we'll end our review with some additional thoughts after the unboxing:
    Winners
    For sure, the superhero t-shirt ios legit. The eyes remind us of the classic Star Trek TOS episode Let This Be Your Last Battlefield. I also like the thought of "mystery" boxes which we got with the vinyl figure. Not sure if I'll keep or sell, but the last thing I need to do start buying more vinyl figures. Having met Stan Lee, I also like the hardback graphic novel, although I have to admit that such things aren't exactly "exclusive" to GF.

    Losers
    Yeah, about that. The poster is odd, considering this is the month BvS came out and we're getting a seemingly random poster and fantasy game. We should have gotten a superhero Steam game and mini-poster (preferably of Wonder Woman) instead. It's also interesting that this one feels like the smallest offering of recent efforts. That's not a bad thing, especially

    A Mostly Good Box...Mostly
    Just like the BvS, March's Geek Fuel mostly delivers, hitting the heights with a fabulous shirt, a good book on Stan, and the mystery vinyl figure. The rest is out the door. So what happens in months in which huge films don't come out? Sometimes GF rises to the occasion, but it will be interesting to see how they can survive alongside such powerhouses like Star Wars, Marvel, and DC, when they have a seemingly unending amount of characters they can create for these boxes. Sure, GF has the same chance - perhaps more with so many geek properties - but their uneven effort as of late has got to change.

    March's Geek Fuel is either a well-rounded effort or another frustrating head-scratcher. It contains the fewest items of any box I can remember, perhaps showing that the company is moving towards the fewer/better model, something they absolutely demonstrated with their Back to the Future box. But is there enough time (and fan money) out there to make this change? Only time will tell, and we might not hang around long enough to find out.

    DOWNSIZING imagines what might happen if, as a solution to over-population, Norwegian scientists discover how to shrink humans to five inches tall and propose a 200-year global transition from big to small.
