Review: My Geek Box – Doctor Who Collector’s Box

Fairly recently My Geek Box announced they were doing a Doctor Who special version of My Geek Box, their monthly subscription box, for £35.99 with over £100 worth of Doctor Who specific merchandise inside. I don’t often go for these monthly subscriptions, especially these geeky based ones, as they have such a huge range of franchises in them that I’m normally only interested in about half of the stuff in there so it’s a bit of a waste. This one is all Doctor Who and it says limited to 1000 so I got one. They are still available as I type this, here, on their website but as they have a limited number I don’t know how much longer they will be there.

With is saying £100 worth of products I had no idea what they would be and I don’t even know if they’re all the same, I haven’t seen any reviews of this specific box when I look on Google, but I am pretty happy with what I got. Everything apart from one thing will definitely be used and I like that it’s got some more grown up merchandise rather than just toys, which is what I expected given the price they claim it’s worth as that would be a lot of toys.

Review: Doctor Who Lego Ideas Set (No 21304)

Adding this after posting: I just realised the spare clear one by one stud I found on the floor after finishing the set when I’d put the spares away is still attached to the top of the console, that isn’t meant to be there.

I have a few Lego sets, I just find them so relaxing and fun to build and take apart, but I think this is the only one I have that’s actually a current one and I wanted to do a post on it. I guess it’s kind of a review but it may not be as in depth as other Lego reviewers as I’m mainly going on how fun it was to build and the final look of it rather than a more specification based one as I do not have a huge amount of Lego or follow the news from it. I have included some measurements at the bottom of the review though.

This is a Lego set that I was hoping would be made at some point, it’s the TARDIS along with three of the main characters; Eleventh Doctor, Twelfth Doctor and Clara Oswald along with a Weeping Angel and two Daleks which had to be built from standard Lego pieces and I really like. The TARDIS front itself is detachable so it can be kept as a smaller display if you want, how I’m planning on doing it, but it also attaches to the rest of the set that makes up the inside of the TARDIS. The internal part is based on the Twelfth Doctor’s TARDIS and is all greys.

The set number is 21304, has a total of 623 pieces and costs £49.99 in the UK. It was released in December 2015 and is still available on the Lego store here but I have seen it in other places too. I know my parents bought it on the Tesco website though it shows as out of stock at the moment and it’s probably in a lot of physical stores too.
