REVIEW: April 2017 Loot Crate – Investigate

The April 2017 Loot Crate is all about the theme “Investigate”. We get our first glimpse of this with the themed investigative briefcase box. It features illustrations of everything you’ll need to start your very own forensic investigation. Also, the included LootCrate magazine looks like it includes the silhouettes of Dana Scully from X-Files and Jim Hopper from Strange Things. They might just be, since, inside, you get items from both licenses.

The t-shirt of the month in the May Loot Crate is a Stranger Things black tee featuring a homage to the cover of Uncanny X-Men #134. It features Eleven with the Demogorgon flaring up in the background and other characters in black and red on the sides.

Made by A Crowded Coop, the X-Files Pencils features four (maybe No. 2) pencils with various sayings from the show. There’s “That’s Why They Put The ‘I’ In FBI”, “I Want To Believe”, “The Truth Is Out There”, and “Trust No One”.

This month’s Loot Crate pin is basically a mini cassette recorder. I’m guessing most people under the age of 30(?) have no idea what one of these things are, but investigators used to take voice notes on these before iPhones were invented. Just ask Dale Cooper (Twin Peaks) who always spoke to Diane into one.

From The Dark Knight, who is a detective in his own right, the crate includes an Exclusive Batman Color-Changing Mug from Zak! Designs. Featuring the Gotham skyline, put a little hot beverage in this mug and witness the Joker’s gas and the Bat-Signal overtake the once peaceful cityscape.

Finally, there’s the collectible figure (some might say toy) that’s included in the Investigate LootCrate. It’s the Exclusive Marvel’s Jessica Jones Q-Fig from QMx. The head of Alias Investigations is kicking down walls in the Q-Fig as she’s all dressed up in her trademark scarf, leather jacket, and boots.

The Loot Crate subscription runs $15.99 for a single month; $13.25/mo for 3 months; $12.95/mo for 6 months; $11.95/mo for 12 months. Each Crate features over $45.00 retail value of collectible goods and gear.

SportsCrate and the MLB Ballers Line

The folks at LootCrate have introduced a new monthly subscription service called SportsCrate. Featuring items from ten Major League Baseball teams, the Crate starts at $39.99 per month. Or you can pick up a season pass, which covers from May through September, for $179.99. You basically choose one team (Cardinals, Cubs, Dodgers, Giants, Mets, Rangers, Red Sox, Royals, Tigers, or Yankees) and receive 5 to 7 team specific items. What drew my eye was that LootCrate has produced their own line of action figures called Ballers.

Recently, I spoke with Logan Lubera, the Creative Director at Loot Crate, about the new Sports Crate subscription box and, specifically, the Ballers line. Logan, who previously worked at Marvel Comics, Hasbro, and Blizzard, gave me the low-down on what to expect from the Ballers line.

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.

REVIEW: March 2017 Loot Crate – Primal

The March 2017 Loot Crate was designed to help you unleash the beast within. With the Primal theme, this month’s crate features exclusives items from Overwatch, Wolverine, Jurassic Park, and Predator. It includes the “Explore The World Of Primal” Loot Crate magazine.

REVIEW: February 2017 Loot Crate

February 2017 marked a major change for the folks at Loot Crate. They swapped out the box logo we’ve come to know so well for a new stylized LC (shaped sort of like a box). Personally, I’m liking this one better.
