The March Theme was 80s. I signed up back in January and finally got a box. I thought that was crazy long.

Shutter Shades, Rubix Cube Keychain, and Ghostbusters patch.

IMG_0608 I have heard this happened to more than one person – it’s not high quality. I signed up for a 6 month subscription with the promise of no filler items. I was disappointed.

Greatest American Hero Magnet

Never Ending Story Necklace – This is really cheap metal. This one is much better! It’s a great idea but the execution was poor.

Slashfest Club Poster – Mashup of 80s horror icons. I generally dislike roll-up posters (which I have said elsewhere).

And the quality on this one is very poor and pixellated.

KRE-O Transformers Micro Changers

Ghostbusters Tee – I don’t recall if I had the option to choose mens or womens (I mix it up). I do wish the fabric had been softer on this one, but it’s a fun design.

I wasn’t crazy about the big thing in the center of the back.

Beetlejuice Funko Pop! – This subscription is supposed to feature a new Funko Pop and this was a great one for the 80s theme.

Save Ferris Mug – As you might remember, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off featured a campaign to “Save Ferris” from his pretend sickness. I loved this.

IMG_0592The Collectible Geek logo on the back of the mug didn’t bother me here!

I feel like I got pretty burned with a six month subscription! I found it hard to identify more than 3 meticulously chosen items in this box. The price per box on a 6 month subscription is $33.50, so I’d definitely expected more premium items in this box. I didn’t think it was any better than Loot Crate, which is over $10 less per month. It does have one huge benefit in that you can skip the month if you don’t care for the theme. I love the 80s theme but this was definitely not my fave 80s stuff, so that may have something to do with my disappointment, but I just didn’t feel that the items were premium enough.

    Having seen the March CollectibIe Geek reviews, I think the Funko Pop-only cache is probably a better bet, in terms of item value, shipping cost justification, and of receiving stuff you’ll actually like. My single experience ordering a set of minis from CG last month was positive (I got a rare Game of Thrones collectible, woooo), but I haven’t delved into cache purchases yet. Let’s see what April brings…

    I received the same items as Brandy. This was a one time purchase box for me. I agree with Brandy that some of the items felt like a filler. My rubix cube was in pieces too which was disappointing.i

    oh sad. I had high hopes for this one. I wonder what a box for someone who didn’t signup for such a long subscription got and if it was really different. A couple of your items I would consider filler and like you said not of great quality. I also do not want a company logo on all the really usable items especially so large that is kindof crazy.

      all the boxes are the same as far as i know. things like the cheapy jewelry, the magnets printed on that flexible magnet stuff, all those i consider filler items for sure. if they’re not filler – what is?! obviously i thought i’d love it if i bought 6 months.

      glad to see you agree with my logo issues 🙂
