October 2014 Loot Crate Review: FEAR!
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.
The theme for October is Fear. You'll find items from The Walking Dead, Dead Rising and Sharknado. Exclusives were also included in this months box as well. Heres what i received from Loot Crate this month:
Death By Kitten T-Shirt: The shirt material felt super comfy, almost like American Apparel. It was very lightweight and soft. I'm not sure if i like the style. This box is set to fit my husband. He's deathly allergic to cats so i guess this is the best he can get as close to them without dying. Estimated retail cost for the shirt is $20.
The Walking Dead (Issue #132): Ok, WHO told them i love comics!?! Thank You!!! Especially one i currently read too. Estimated retail cost for the comic is around $15.
Sledgesaw Hammer Pen: When i first looked at it i was like what in the world is this. I totally didn't even realize it said DeadRising on the bottom of the box either. I didn't know it was a pen either until after i looked through the booklet, I thought it was just a toy replica. Kinda made me feel better to see other people didn't either until later. Estimated retail cost for the pen is around $10.
How To Survive A Sharknado Book: Not just comics, I love books, I love anything that has to do with reading. This is definitely going to get read and would make an awesome gift afterwards. Estimated retail cost for the book on Amazon listed around $10.
"Oh, Brother" Art Print: This is just the cutest and will be going up on the wall with my other prints. Estimated retail cost for the print is around $5.
Slashes & Bites Tattoos: Tattoos are cool. I sort of want to use them for halloween but i just know i'd mess it up. Estimated retail cost for the tats are around $5.
Smite Gift Card: I'm still really not quite sure what this is exactly but HEY free stuff. Estimated retail cost is null.
Toxic Candy Waste: ....Because? Blech. Who seriously likes these?!
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. This months booklet is full of 3D images so they included some nifty 3D glasses. Reminds me so much of Tennant :)
Yet again they decorated inside the box to set up your figures inside. I LOVE it. This needs to be a monthly occurrence.
I definitely loved this theme box this month. Perhaps its my obsession with anything horrific and Halloween that makes me love it even more. I think the fact that they include things to read, it just makes the money that much more worth it. I would have to say my favorite item in this month's box would be the Dead Rising Pen. So after calculating the amount all together I say it all came to around $65.
But hey you make the call on what you think the cost would be. After shipping is included you are paying $20 in total so for me this months box went above and beyond that price.
