Geek Fuel EXP is now back to being a monthly subscription! This box is filled with geeky accessories and apparel with exclusive games, toys, gear, and collectibles. A month-to-month plan costs $29. If you want to save and get some bonus items, they also have a 3-month plan with a free exclusive shirt for $28 per month and a 6-month plan with a bonus bundle and a free exclusive tee for $27 per month. Shipping is free.

The items arrive in a sturdy red box with Geek Fuel branding.

Some of the items came with individual packaging.

The card looks cool!

It lists all the items in the box plus a brief description for each.

There are also photos of the items!

Everything in my box!

Enamel Pin. The pin this month features the subscription box’s name! It’s a nice addition to caps, tote bags, jackets, and more so that people can easily how proud of a geek you are.

Mug. This mug is perfect for hot beverages and it even changes colors.

The mug has the same design as the popular British Secret Service Agent!

The box also lists down instructions on how to use it.

It even gave us a picture of how the mug works.

The box indicates that it’s a Geek Fuel exclusive item.

When we opened the box, we saw that our mug was broken.

Despite the box and the bubble wrap to protect it, it still ended up broken. What a bummer.

I emailed them and expected a response within 24 hours because it is their promised time, but I received a message back after 2 weeks.

They apologized for the damaged item, but due to the pandemic, they cannot ship a replacement immediately because they have a limited number of staff in their warehouse.

They won’t be able to ship out the replacement until at least the end of June, and it wouldn’t arrive until at least the 4th of July. To avoid disappointment, they’ve refunded me $5 of the purchase price of the box.

There’s an included game interface of Pacman!

Just by looking at this, it really made me feel really nostalgic.

Pac-Man T-Shirt. I really like this Pac-Man shirt because it features an animated version of Pac-Man!

It also has the game interface as the background of the character. The Japanese characters on the side read “Pakku Man”.

Venom Q-Fig Collectible Diorama. For this month’s Q-Fig, I got Eddie Brock’s symbiote, Venom!

The figure comes in nice window box. It also has the figure’s picture at the back.

The figure shows Venom sticking out his long tongue!

The details of this piece are impressive!

It’s also hand-painted, which makes it special. The colors used are amazing, like the slimy-looking green thing from Venom’s mouth, wrapped around his tongue, and it looks really toxic like it will melt anything that it touches!

If not for the broken mug, this would have been one of the coolest boxes from Geek Gear. It’s really a bummer that the mug is damaged, and that it will take some time before I’ll get the replacement, though it’s understandable why it will take longer. I just hope that they will replace it because the mug looks cool. I also love the Pacman shirt because it reminds me of the days that I played the classic game. I’m also thrilled with the Venom diorama, the details and colors are commendable, you wouldn’t think that the paint job is done by hand!
