June 2014 Loot Crate Review: Transform!
Loot Crate is a monthly geek and gamer swag subscription box. Each month they send 6 to 8 handpicked items for $13.37 plus $6 shipping and handling. Each box are guaranteed to have a value of $30 or more. The box is shipped via USPS Priority Mail and most times arrive in about 2 days which is very awesome.
At first when you open the box immediately your thoughts were "hey, this may end up awesome." After removing the shirt its rather plain and disappointing. I feel as if they didn't even bother with this months. It most definitely was aimed towards guys completely, making it specifically Transformer themed, no originality or anything. You pretty much pay for the shirt and thats it so if you were super in love with the shirt then it would be worth it for you.
The theme for June is Transform. You'll find items from Transformers. Heres what i received from Loot Crate this month:
Marty Mcprime Shirt: If you are a huge Back To The Future fan as well as Transformers than this is the shirt for you. It's a mash-up of the two awesome characters. Estimated retail cost for the shirt is $20.
Artist: Nathan Davis
If you are looking to purchase the shirt you can get it here.
Transformers Blind Box: These are always fun because its a surprise in a box and surprises are always fun. I think i may have been happier if i got Optimus Prime but hey thats why its a surprise, right? Estimated retail cost for the box is $13.
Transformers Hex Bugs: Ok, so honestly my first reaction when i saw this in the box was, what the heck is this stupid toy. We had no idea what the point of it was. After taking another look at it i found a tiny switch at the bottom of it, switched it on and the toy began to vibrate. If you place it on the ground it moves around super fast like a bug trying to run around. This amused us for a good 5 minutes and then we got bored of it. Estimated cost $8.
MLG Terry Cloth Wristband: Wristbands are always neat to have but sometimes find them useless and cheap. I guess since my husband and I work out this could come in handy. Estimated cost probably $2.
MLG Stickers & Transformers Sticker Set: ....Stickers, joy.
Warheads Candy: Because when i think of Transformers and gaming i think of Warheads? These were so disgusting.
Themed Button: Button Swag
Loot Crate Unboxing Guide: Every Loot Crate comes with a booklet that explains every item in the box and where it comes from.
So thats pretty much it, nothing too exciting and not very thrilled at all with this crate. I feel as if they are getting worse and thats pretty disappointing. But hey, if the shirt is what made it worth for you then awesome, for me it left me dry. After calculating all the retail costs it came to about $45. Not bad, altho i'm pretty sure most of this stuff here you could find for cheaper if you are lucky.
