Okay, let’s see what’s inside the January 2016 Loot Crate!
A peek inside!
January’s theme was “Invasion” and the mini mag/info booklet featured an X-Files quick start guide, a Q&A with this month’s t-shirt designer, helpful tips for surviving an alien invasion, and more.
Exclusive X-Files “The Day has Come” T-Shirt – My husband has been (not so) patiently waiting for the return of the X-Files, so he was stoked to see this month’s t-shirt. Loot Crate recently collaborated with Threadless to run a design contest and this was the winning submission.
Exclusive Alien Facehugger Plush – If facehuggers were actually this freakin’ adorable, I’d let ’em hug the heck outta my face all damn day. True story: One of my 3 year olds took this with her to sleep (along with her Peppa Pig & Hello Kitty) and said that she “loves her facehugger”. Awww. She made her daddy proud. 😉
Exclusive The Fifth Element Prop Replica Multi Pass – I don’t know anything about The Fifth Element, so I don’t know if the girl on this ID is supposed to look cracked out or what… Either way, well, she does. Anywhooo… this is an actual functional card holder that you can use for your work badge, library card, whatevs.
Exclusive Space Invaders Vinyl Figure – Yet another Loot Crate exclusive, this little guy is a 3D vinyl replica of the very 2D character from Space Invaders. Looters could receive one of three different color combos.
Exclusive X-Files LED Flashlight – This officially licensed LED flashlight featuring the X-Files logo is water-resistant, has an anti-shock switch, and even includes batteries. Nice!
Exclusive “Invasion” Mini Art Prints – These prints are great for framing! They both measure 9″ x 6″ and feature movie art from classic “invasion” films from the 1950’s.
Invasion Pin – Loot Crate has totally upped their game with the pins! Not only do they look cooler, but you can use them to unlock “something epic” every month on their site.
Loot Crate has totally stepped it up for the new year! According to the info booklet, every box from here on out will include a t-shirt. The new pin design is a nice change too. Come to think of it, the booklet itself even seemed better designed/filled with more content. Great changes, great box!
Remember — If you’d like to sign up for Loot Crate, you can save $3 on any subscription plan with coupon code “LOOTR3“!
January 2016 Loot Crate Review
Loot Crate has been totally killin’ it lately and this box was no exception. I thought all of the items were great (except maybe the “meh” ID thing) and I love that pretty much everything was exclusive to Loot Crate. Oh, and my daughter made a new friend too! 😉
What do the stars mean?
★ = Crummy ★★ = Just Okay ★★★ = Good ★★★★ = Awesome ★★★★★ = Extraordinarily Awesome
