REVIEW: February 2017 Slam Crate
I was able to get my hands on the February 2017 Slam Crate thanks to the folks at Loot Crate. Their specialized Slam Crate is made for wrestling fans, specifically fans of the WWE. Since February was the last crate before Wrestlemania 33 in early April, there were plenty of reasons to want to nab that loot. One of those reasons being that the Slam Crate informational insert was also a poster of The Undertaker from what I believe was last year's Wrestlemania.
The Road To Wrestlemania Slam Crate included an Exclusive Seth Rollins Authentic T-shirt. The grey short sleeve tee shows off Rollins’ logo as well as having “The Architect” and “Seth Freakin’ Rollins” printed around it. Apparently, Rollins even sported this version on an episode of RAW.
There was also an Exclusive Topps Card Pack, which featured three full-color trading cards (John Cena, Kevin Owens, and Charlotte Flair) as well as a code card that unlocks something in the Topps WWE Slam Card Trader App.
And, as with all crates, you get an exclusive pin. This month, it’s the WWE Attitude Era Championship Belt Enamel Pin. You can celebrate the title runs of The Rock, The Undertaker, and Mankind with the replica of this 1990’s belt.
The big toy included in the February Slam Crate is an Exclusive The Rock Figure from Jada Toys. The figure is part of Jada’s Metals line, a die-cast series of hefty and solid collectibles. The 4-inch tall figure features a single point of articulation at the waist. It also comes with a small black stand base. I often test my 6 and 5 year olds on who a toy is supposed to be, based on its sculpt, and they got my fellow Freedom High School alum correct.
The final piece in the crate, and what will likely get the most use around my abode, is the Exclusive World Heavyweight Championship Belt Pouch. Think of it as a giant fanny pack in the shape of a WWE belt. But the great thing about it is that it can fit a not-so-svelte 39 year old as well as a 6 year old because it’s got some serious adjustability. My kids love that they can pretend to be a WWE champion, and my wife suggested I use it as a part of my next Halloween costume.
You can sign up for the bi-monthly Slam Crate with the following plans: 1 Crate - $29.99; 3 Crates - $28.99 ea.; 6 Crates - $27.99 ea.
