YES! I pulled out all the stops this month and got the mother load of geeky subscription boxes! Today we put them all head to head to see which one wins the month of September. So without further ado …meet your competitors…

geek me box

Geek Me Box Another tough competitor! This one with several large items including the cool Adventure time eraser figures inside the pencil case. Total value is $47.50 for $30 shipped. Check out this unboxing here.

I will also point out that I got the new Arcade Block and Nerd Block JR but opted to keep them from this competition as I already have the Nerd Block company represented. Plus both were kind of a let down anyways.

My Thoughts: This is the first month I researched the actual value of the items only to find out that they are all essentially the same. However, Loot Crate comes out on top for being the least expensive in the bunch at $20 followed by My Geeky Goodies for $25. So in a purely “value for your money” stand point naturally the Loot Crate wins. But for me its not about the dollar amount because you can get $100 worth of stuff but if you don’t like what you get you’ve still wasted your money.



And The Winner Is… The “Geeky Subscription Box” winner for September 2014 is My Geeky Goodies! This was a tough one… but first lets just put this out there: Nerd Block came in dead last by a mile! Not only that but so did their very first Arcade Block and the just for kids Nerd Block JR. They are the most expensive box on the market and they consistently keep coming up on the bottom. Loot Crate had the ability to take first but blew it with the unrecognizable Malcolm Reynolds figure and play money. I am a huge Firefly fan but they could have done better which knocked them into 3rd place. Geek Me Box was cool and slid comfortably into second… lots of big stuff but no real collectors item to solidify the deal. My Geeky Goodies took first because …well for starters they had 2 powerhouse items: the bad-ass shirt and the Pop Vinyl… but also didn’t fizzle out with garbage they kept it alive with the TMNT and Adventure Time figures. All big items no filler! They deserve the title and I can’t wait to see what they bring to the table next month.
