Box Review: LootCrate August 2015

IMG_9843

“Loot Crateâ„¢ delivers the best in geek + gaming gear. From collectibles, apparel, tech gadgets, art, and other epic gear, it’s like Comic-Con in a box!”

LootCrate is $13.95 plus $6 shipping and handling for month-to-month subscription. Less for multiple month purchases. They also now offer “Level Up,” 3 apparel upgrades at different pricing levels that you can add to your monthly subscription.

Included is a nice booklet, detailing the box contents.
Los Pollos Hermanos Apron (Retail $29.99 but $25 on Amazon) – This is apparently from Breaking Bad, which isn’t something I’ve ever cared to watch – and isn’t remotely scifi or fantasy. So I’m not sure why the series is sometimes included in geek boxes. Total fail for me.

Next up is easily the ugliest mug I’ve ever seen.
Carnage Mug (Retail $9.99) – Subscribers could receive either Venom or Carnage mugs (for the Villains 2 theme). Both are equally hideous. And neither would be used, as it looks like something paint-by-numbers not official Marvel. Another bummer.

The Joker Painted Wooden Figure (Retail $12.99?) – This is another LootCrate original, a cute toy with an interchangeable face.
Hydra Prop Replica (Retail $15) – This was my favorite item in the box, and probably the only thing I’ll keep.
LootCrate Button – Venom

Summary: The two highest retail items were a total bust for me. Not a great start to my LootCrate experience. But they have 2 more months to win me over, since I signed up for a 3-month subscription.

What do you think of this month’s LootCrate?
