July 2014 Loot Crate Review: Villains!
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.
I wasn't sure what i loved more, the inside contents of the box or the actual box itself. They had the box decorated to look like a villain had actually graffiti'd all over it. I almost thought it was done by hand with a sharpie. Another thing i pointed out to my husband was the size of the box was abnormally longer than usual and it seemed like some sort of comic book could fit inside. Lets take a look.
The theme for July is Villains. You'll find items from Star Wars, Mario and DC/Marvel Characters Heres what i received from Loot Crate this month:
Joki Villain T Shirt: Loot Crate has partnered up with Woot! once again to bring us this awesome mash-up of Loki and The Joker. Estimated retail cost for the shirt is $20.
Deadpool Socks: Husband nor i are definitely not Deadpool fans but socks are socks and i think they are pretty awesome and cozy. Estimated retail cost for the shirt is $9.
Exclusive Rocket Raccoon Comic: I KNEW the box looked about the size of a comic book and BINGO, one was shining in that box. I am all in for every Loot Crate box to include a nifty comic book in them. Since it's an exclusive and comic book pricing varies the pricing would estimated about $10.
Bowser Magnet: Oh yes, i do love me some magnets, especially if its anything to do with Mario related. Estimated retail value $4.
Darth Vader Key Chain: Vader is awesome and so are keychains. I may have to take this away from my husband, shhh. Estimated retail value about $7.
Necessary Evil DVD: At first i thought this was a soundtrack of some sort but it turns out Christopher Lee narrates this documentary that explores the villains of the DC universe from over seven decades of incredible comic book chaos. Necessary retail value about $3.
Harley Quinn and Joker Posters: 2 in 1 poster duo so this counts for 2 separate items in the box this month. i immediately hung it up on my collection wall. I haven't been able to find out who the artists yet. Posters estimated retail value for $5 each.
Loot Crate Unboxing Guide: Every Loot Crate comes with a booklet that explains every item in the box and where it comes from.
Overall i think they did very well with this months box, i love all the choices they picked out and i really love the comic thrown in there as well. Can't wait for next months crate i hear we get a special POP! figure just for us. This box alone was estimated to about $60 which is DEFINITELY worth it since you only payed $20.
