November 2014 Loot Crate Review: BATTLE!
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 November is Battle. You'll find items from Mega Man, Halo and Assassins Creed. A themed shirt was also included as well. Heres what i received from Loot Crate this month:
Pirates vs Ninja T-Shirt: The shirt gives out a tribute to the ever long battle of Pirates vs Ninjas. Of course my choice is and has always been Pirates. Estimated retail cost for the shirt is $20.
Mega Man Mini Helmet: I thought this was an awesome piece to add to our shelf collection. I've been wanting something Mega Man to display for some time now. I would have loved to receive the blue helmet but green will do just fine. Estimated retail cost for the figure is $15.
HALO Drop Ship Mini Figure: I'm not much of the Halo game fan but I do love me some of the figures tho. This is pretty tiny so to display it on the shelf looks a bit strange. Estimated retail cost for the figure is $8.
Street Fighter Headband: Not sure what i'm going to do with a headband but gosh darnit i'll find SOMETHING. I used to kick ass in the game, Chun-Li's my girl and I had a soft heart for Blanka. Estimated retail cost for the headband is $5.
Assassin's Creed IV Unity Coin with Velvet Pouch: I'm not quite sure what one does with coins. I'm not much of a collector, I have been given some as gifts but I never know where to display them. This baby was quite heavy for its size, pretty cool looking. Not sure if its something I would ever buy or keep. Estimated retail cost for the coin is $8.
Game Redeeming Codes: Always love me some free gaming codes to play with. They offer a FREE full game download for Street Fighter IV Super arcade edition, that alone is actually $20 value and i've been dying to play it so YAY! Theres also a code to try Lichdom Battlemage, not sure if i'd try it out. And then a card that just pretty much states which side are you on.
Themed Button: Button Swag
Once again our lovely box has turned into an awesome display case for your collectables.
This box for the month was one definitely for the gamers out there. I'm not so much of a fan of the items as I am with the games. I did love the Mega Man display item as well as the redemption code for the Street Fighter game. So after calculating the amount all together I say it all came to around $55.
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 some this months box went above and beyond that price.
