Loot Crate is a monthly subscription box full of hand-picked, awesome geek and gamer products. Each month, for less than $20, you’ll receive 6-8 products which are guaranteed to have a value of $30 or more.
Loot Crate ships via FedEx Smart Post and took about a week to arrive. You can expect to receive this box around the 20th of the month.
I don’t always mention it (although I should), but the inside of the Loot Crate boxes are printed to match that month’s theme.
In addition to product information, the booklet that comes along with Loot Crate also includes fun extras like puzzles, articles relating to the theme, trivia, interviews, etc. The January 2016 Loot Crate theme was “Invasion” and included the following items:
~Exclusive X-Files The Day Has Come T-Shirt: This t-shirt was the winning design from the Loot Crate + Threadless design contest collaboration. The shirt celebrates X-Files return to television beginning tomorrow night! I actually never watched the X-Files (it was totally my generation though), but maybe I will check it out tomorrow night.
~Exclusive Alien Facehugger Plush: Hmm. I am not sure that I have ever wish I could wear a stuffed animal on my face, but Loot Crate has provided us that option this month in case you want to! LOL! It works exactly like you’d think it does. You hold the alien in front of your face and then you strap the giant rubber band around the alien and your head and boom, you have a facehugger.
~Exclusive Space Invaders Vinyl Figure: These were sent out in three different color combinations (orange / yellow, green / blue and pink / blue). L (my 7 year-old) isn’t familiar with this game, but he has this guy in his room already! Do they make Space Invaders for PS4? They really should. That would be fun!
~Exclusive The Fifth Element Prop Replica Multi Pass: This prop replica is from the sci-fi movie “The Fifth Element” and can be used to hold your own credit card sized id or whatever else you wish. It’d be a unique way to hold your work or school id that’s for sure!
~Exclusive “Invasion” Mini Art Prints: These 9×6 art prints are a salute to the classics. I think they would look amazing framed in a movie room.
~Exclusive X-Files LED Flashlight: I was hoping that this would have a fun X-Files logo that made a cool pattern with the light, but it’s just a regular LED flashlight. It’s super bright and who doesn’t need an extra flashlight? Also, I LOVE that Loot Crate included batteries for it (THANK YOU)!
~Loot Crate Pin: As usual the box also included the monthly Loot Crate pin. What does everyone do with their Loot Crate pins? Do you keep them all together?
