FIGHT! — November’s Loot Crate is dedicated to the good ol’ sport of “battle”. Thanks to the crazy weather, I got my box a lot later than usual. Ah yes, the mighty snow storm was a battle of which my trusty mailman just could not win. Zing!
If you’re not aware, 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, snacks, hardware, art, accessories, and more! (They’ve even been sending limited edition Loot Crate exclusive items!) Boxes are $19.37/month (price includes shipping), or less with longer subscriptions.
I apologize in advance for the crummy quality of the photos in this post. I’m having some lighting… issues.
Let the battle begin!
The box was a little different this month. It actually had instructions on how to put it together in order to create a play scene for little cutout fighters included in the mini mag. Cute idea, but this momma of cuckoo bananas twin toddlers ain’t got time for that. 😉
First look at the goods. Definitely got the feeling that I was being watched.
Pirate vs. Ninja Shirt by Zen Monkey Studios – This (Loot Crate exclusive) shirt is done in the same style as the Zelda one from May’s Crate. It’s an homage to the age-old(?!) debate of who would win in a battle — pirates or ninjas. Frankly, I don’t care which side would win. It’s like a battle between Jennifer Garner and Anne Hathaway — I’d be happy if both suffered defeat. I’m just not a fan of pirates, ninjas, or super skinny horse-faced actresses. (Did I say that?)
Assassin’s Creed IV Unity Coin with Velvet Pouch – Another Loot Crate exclusive. My husband used to play Assassin’s Creed all the damn time. All I remember about it, from the occasional glances up at the screen, was a dude running around on rooftops. And doing mean things to a chicken. Or a pig. I dunno. I didn’t pay much attention. Anyway, this coin has the seal of the Assassins on one side, and a space to engrave your name on the other (shown above).
Mega Man Mini Helmet by CAPCOM – Why yes, it’s another Loot Crate exclusive item. This is a replica of Mega Man’s signature helmet. This dude’s been in over 130 different games in the past 27 years. He’s one busy little, er, mega man.
Street Fighter Headband – A replica headband of Street Fighter’s Ryu character. Tie this around your head and get ready for battle. Or Halloween? Again, a Loot Crate exclusive item.
HALO Drop Ship Mini Figure – I think this is the only non-exclusive item in the box. It’s a 19-piece figure that comes in his own drop ship grenade, plus a sidearm. I have no idea what that means, but I trust the description in the mini mag. Sorry, HALO fans.
Mini mag & game downloads. There was a Loot Crate button too, but it got away from me and refused to be photographed. Damn button.
Like last month, I didn’t do a cost breakdown on things since all but one were Loot Crate exclusive items. I think it’s fair to assume that it’s well worth the piddly $19.37 (shipped!) subscription price.
