REVIEW: May 2016 Loot Crate – Power
The May 2016 Loot Crate theme was Power. Miriam-Webster defines power as the ability or right to control people or things. This month’s Crate features all sorts of collectibles that revolve around that basic theme. There’s a special May 2016 – Power Loot Pin as well as a special book detailing the month’s loot.
Like with all Loot Crates, this one included a t-shirt. The chosen grey short sleeve t-shirt is from the upcoming World of Warcraft film – Warcraft. It features silhouettes of the main characters, with the orc in a cranberry color.
There’s also the Thanos oven mitt – officially named the Infinity Gauntlet Oven Mitt. The bright yellow glove features six Infinity Stones. However, those Infinity Stones might not be that powerful because I just received a voluntary recall email stating that it might not withstand high oven temperatures. Truthfully, I wasn’t ever going to use this as an oven mitt anyway.
Then there’s what’s apparently a Dragonball Z plush ball. This was clearly the most popular item in the Loot Crate with my kids. Oh, they wanted to steal it before I was able to take photos. I mean…it’s a dragon wrapped around a ball with a hangtag. What’s cooler than that? Pop it on your book bag and you’re the talk of kindergarten.
Finally, the big collectible for toy fans, and what’s likely the most expensive piece in the May 2016 Loot Crate, is The Hulk Q-Fig statuette from Quantum Mechanix. The 3-inch tall maquette shows off Hulk with a stylized look. The figure reminds me of the now defunct Disney Infinity video game collectible line. Unfortunately, this Hulk doesn’t unlock a digital version of himself in Contra or anything.
