May 2017 Loot Crate unboxing time!
If you still haven’t heard, Loot Crate is a monthly subscription box for fans of gamer/geek culture. Every month you’ll get a box packed with 6-8 items that can include toys, gear, figures, art, accessories, and more. They often (more often than not actually) send special limited edition Loot Crate exclusive items as well.
Disclosure: I received this box for review purposes. I was not compensated in any way. All opinions are my own. Post may contain affiliate and/or referral links.
Subscriptions are $21.99/month (price includes shipping), or less with longer plans. — You can save $3 on your first month with coupon code LOOTR3.
Okay, let’s see what’s inside the May 2017 Loot Crate!
A peek inside.
The theme for May’s box was “Guardians” and the mini mag/info booklet included photos and descriptions of each item. The info booklet used to also include interviews and various articles relating to the theme, but it looks like they’ve expanded on the item details and left the other features out.
Exclusive The Goonies T-Shirt
So, um, is it bad that I’ve never actually watched The Goonies all the way through? I hadn’t even seen E.T. until a few years ago… I guess movies weren’t really my thing in the 80’s. 😉 Anywhoooo… This bright red tee sports the classic phrase — yes, even I’ve heard of it — “The Goonies Never Say Die” in bold black print surrounding their signature skull & crossbones design.
Timed Exclusive Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Rocket & Groot Q-Fig
Loot Crate subscribers were the first to get ahold of this new Q-Fig featuring Rocket & Baby Groot from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. As with all Funko Pops and Q-Figs, I’m keeping this duo safe & sound in their unopened package. The detail on this thing is quite impressive and Groot’s expressive lil’ face is too stinkin’ cute. Aww.
Loot Crate Edition Star Wars Adult Coloring Book & Colored Pencils
This special Loot Crate Star Wars coloring book features an exclusive variant cover and pages that were hand-selected by the Loot Crate team. It includes a good mix of both simple and super detailed images for all skill levels. They also threw in a 6-pack of colored pencils with a little pencil sharpener to get you coloring right away.
Exclusive Destiny Patches
I’ve never heard of Destiny, so I’m not quite sure what these are all about. I do know that they’re an official set of embroidered patches that can be sewn or ironed onto your clothing or bag of choice (thanks, info booklet!).
Exclusive May 2017 Loot Pin
May’s exclusive pin allowed subscribers to unlock free digital copies of Rocket Raccoon #1 and Groot #1. It also glows in the dark! Cool!
May’s “Guardians” themed Loot Crate included a great collection of items. My personal favorite was the Q-Fig, mainly due to the presence of adorable Baby Groot. 😉 — If you’d like to sign up for Loot Crate, you can save $3 on any subscription plan with coupon code “LOOTR3“!
