What is Loot Crate?
Is a theme packed box of 6 to 8 handpicked items every month. Items such as Zombie themed T-Shirts, Simpson’s merchandise, Ninja Turtles, and even good old Ren and Stimpy have graced the stage of Loot Crate.
This Month’s theme is VERSUS which has exclusive items from some of the greatest rivalries to ever grace pop culture.
After hearing about Loot Crate for the past couple of years on various Podcasts, such as The Nerdist Podcast, Steve Austin Show and Talk is Jericho, and a few other life changes in 2015, The Subscriptionist presented me with an opportunity to give Loot Crate a try; and I took it. So without further ado, here is my review for the VERSUS Loot Crate.
Let’s take a peek at the contents of the March 2016 VERSUS Themed Crate!
The first thing that you see when you open this crate is part of the design of the reversible crate along with the AVP Vinyl Figure and the Mirror, Mirror T-shirt.
Loot Crate Exclusive Alien Vs. Predator 4.5″ Vinyl Figures (Titan Merchandise)
Usually you get 1 Vinyl figure in a crate. In this one you get two! This is a definite prize for any Alien or Predator fan!
Mirror, Mirror T-shirt (Quantum Mechanix)
The T-shirt has an amazing graphic of Spock facing off against… Spock! Wait. What? That’s right! Inspired by the Classic Star Trek episode Mirror, Mirror, the shirt depicts Spock facing off against himself from a parallel universe! On top of the graphic, the fit is great! Not too tight, but I’m not swimming in it either and the fabric feels fantastic! This is a guaranteed winner for any classic Trek fan!!
Loot Crate Exclusive Daredevil Vs. Punisher Reversible Beanie (Bioworld)
Two hats? Nope. Better!! You get two hats in one with this Daredevil vs. Punisher reversible beanie. Each side matches their respective character’s colors and dons their logos!! The fabric feels amazing and is warm!! I’ll definitely be rocking this hat while it’s still deciding to become spring here in my neck of the woods. Which side will I wear? That depends on my mood I suppose.
Loot Crate Exclusive Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Mighty Wallet (Dynomighty)
I have to admit that I didn’t know what this was until I removed it from its plastic sleeve. Then I recognized it from the last days of my life in the retail world. It was a wallet! Not just any wallet though; it’s one of those strong yet sustainable wallets. Very heroic in its own right. Then you add graphics from the upcoming Batman v Superman film and you get a pretty badass wallet!
Loot Crate has given their traditional theme pin an even bigger purpose! You’ll just have to be a Looter to see how! It might not look like it in the pic, but I may have gotten the Golden Chase Variant. I’ll post a comment once I get a confirmation from Loot Crate.
Loot Crate Exclusive Harley Quinn Comic Book (DC Comics)
I used to be a big comic book fan back in the day. I still am, but they’re a lot more expensive now! You get an exclusive comic book in this crate though practically for free when you factor in the value of everything else in this crate against the cost! Furthermore it’s a tale featuring the Joker’s main squeeze, Harley Quinn. I haven’t read it yet. I’m still debating on if I’m going to open it or not (Comic heads know what I’m talking about). If any of you have read it though, feel free to share in the comments.
Word Gush Promotional Card
You read that right. Loot Crate does have a game in the mobile app realm. Word Gush looks to be a mashup of mobile fun. I haven’t had a chance to check it out, but I do have it installed on my mobile device!
Loot Crate Official Member Card
I’m still trying to figure this one out. It does have a pretty cool design though and comes with your Looter# printed on it. I’m sure more details are coming. Stay tuned to find out more!
Loot Crate Magazine: March 2016 Versus
As with all Crates, you get LC Magazine filled with great articles, activities and info about most of the items in that month’s crate.
Last but not Least…
The Crate! Returning Looters know what the crate itself does, but for the newcomers, The Crate isn’t just bestowed a fancy interior design. You can actually turn the Crate inside out to end up with a whole new design!
The value of this month’s Loot Crate was most likely over $100 taking into account that almost all of these items were made exclusively for this crate. This was a successful theme in my eyes. The Versus theme was a great idea! Rivalries are what make all of these pop culture characters and franchises interesting. The theme also serves as a great lead-in to the upcoming Batman v Superman film; not to mention some of the upcoming things for some of the other characters represented. I actually enjoyed many of the items for myself. I highly doubt any of these will be easily gifted!
