Every month you’ll get a box with 6-8 items that can include toys, gear, snacks, hardware, art, accessories, and more! Boxes are $19.37/month (price includes shipping), or less with longer subscriptions.
Last month I got a chance to review May’s Loot Crate (which was themed “Adventure!”) and my husband loved it! He was actually just sporting his new Zelda shirt yesterday. I love that I’ve finally found a subscription that even he enjoys! Yay!
June’s theme is “Transform!”. I had heard rumors of yet another exclusive t-shirt this month… Were they right? Read on, friend!
First look. What’s that I see? — BAM! Another T-shirt! (See, you should always believe rumors. Always.)
“Marty McPrime” T-Shirt – I’ll admit that I don’t know crapola about Transformers, but I certainly watched the hell outta Back to the Future when I was a kiddo. So I totally “get” the mash-up goin’ on here. This is an exclusive design by Australian artist/illustrator Nathan Davis. My husband thought the design was cool, but wasn’t a big fan of the actual shirt color. Ah well. I’m sure he’ll still wear it around the house when he’s feeling extra nerdy. (Retail price: $26.59)
Transformers “Bumblebee” Hex Bug – I’ve heard of Hex Bugs, but never really knew what they were. Actually, I still don’t. haha According to Amazon, this has a tiny motor and 12 “legs” that cause it to move around in a bug-like manner. When it bumps into an object it “scurries away”. So… it’s basically like a plastic roach? Cool! No, really… I kinda wanna open it now. (Amazon Price: $12.99)
The Loyal Subjects Transformers Mini Action Figure Blind Box – Mystery box! Ahhh! I really wanna open this too, but I don’t know what I’d do with the lil’ guy once I did. So for now it retains its “collector’s item” status. If I DO choose to open it, I would find one of eight different characters, complete with signature weapons. (Confession: I would have totally opened it by now if they were cuter. There. I said it. I like cute things.) (Amazon Price: $11.84)
Major League Gaming (MLG) Merch – MLG is for the hardcore gamers who like to be involved in playing/watching professional tournaments. Included in this “starter pack” are a sheet of stickers featuring a few of the top teams, a terrycloth MLG wrist band, and a code for one free month of GameBattles Premium Access. (Estimated Retail Value: $7.00)
Transformers Sticker & WarHeads Candies – A Transformers sticker from The Loyal Subjects and a few WarHeads. Those insanely sour candies were the shizz in my middle school in the late 80’s. Ah, memories. (Estimated Retail Value: $1.25?)
Loot Crate Mini Magazine & June Badge/Pin – We didn’t get one of these magazines in last month’s box, because I think they were switching over to a digital version. It must not have gone over too well, cos the print version is back. My husband enjoyed it and wanted to know where last month’s was. Digital, schmid-gital.
Once again, I’m super impressed with Loot Crate. Another exclusive t-shirt, cool collectibles, old school candy… Not bad! Oh, and all totaled (using Amazon and retail prices), the items in the June box come to $59.67! Crazy awesome value for a roughly $20 box!
