November Loot Crate Review - "Combat"

Posted by KGabriele on December 4, 2015 at 10:00 PM

As usual, I received my monthly Loot Crate, and I have to say that this will be the [foreseeably] last regular Loot Crate review that I do, because I switched my subscription over to the Anime Loot Crate subscription, because I’ll find more fandoms that I relate with! But, I have to say, that this month’s crate wasn’t as good as the others, though there were some items that were really stellar.

The first thing I opened was the blind figure pack from Blizzard’s Cute But Deadly series. I’m not extremely familiar with Blizzard’s games, as I’ve never played them, but the figures are cute and would make great stocking stuffers or even little Christmas presents if you don’t want to break the bank! I got a Zeratul, who, if you’re unfamiliar with Starcraft (I had to look it up myself), is an assassin hero. He’s a pretty cool figure who comes with his own translucent stand. I look forward to adding him to my developing figure collection! 

The next item was from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and they’re “Shredder shades”. As you can tell from the picture, they’re plastic sunglasses that make you look like the famed villain. These are great for kids, but older buyers of the Loot Crate might not care for them, as they’d give you an odd tan if you wore them to the beach, but nevertheless, for TMNT collectors, these are a nice item!

This is one of my favorite items in the crate, since I actually really love these movies, and I’m a sucker for collectable items. We have here, a Mockingjay pin from the newest Hunger Games movie. It’s a nice pin, and since there are all different designs of the Mockingjay, I didn’t have this one, and I’m glad that I have it now!

This Fallout 4 Vault-Tec bobble head is probably the nicest item in this crate. My brother has been playing a lot of Fallout 4, so this will definitely be one of his holiday presents! This is a nice quality bobble head, and it was packaged very sturdily, so he wasn’t broken. Especially considering that you collect these little guys in the game, having one in your collection is a must for any Fallout fan!

I wasn’t one-hundred percent sure why these were in the Loot Crate, besides being additional advertising, but they’ll definitely come in handy if I decide to regift some of the items. Though they’d come in handy if you wanted to use them for just your regular gifts, especially if you forget to buy holiday gift tags!

Going back to Blizzard’s items, this was another item I received that I found as I neared the bottom of the crate. To correspond with the Zeratul figure, I also received magnets that go with the Cute but Deadly series! These are cute magnets that are great for a locker or a college fridge! You have to be careful peeling them off from their sheet, since some of them peel if you’re not careful, but otherwise they look adorable!

Though I haven’t read the comics myself, these Loot Crate excusive covers are always great collectables. This Street Fighter comic is one that I’m not too familiar with, so I didn’t bother opening it as to preserve it’s “mint” condition. However, for people who collect comics, this would be a great addition, especially considering that I’ve seen people sell these “Loot Crate exclusives” to comic stores. It’s always great that Loot Crate caters to people of all fandoms, not just certain ones that are mainstream popular.

The Loot Crate pins are always great to have! Found at the bottom of my box, I love receiving these and putting them on the lanyard I use to keep them safe. The buttons are great, and remind me of a time years ago when I was in the Girl scouts.

The Loot Crate magazine is another great addition to every box and makes me excited to collect them. I have to say, one of my favorite parts of these magazines, are the front and back cover art. As you can see in the picture above, they’re always extraordinarily well-drawn to the theme, and captures what each of the crates represent. They also have relevant articles that are nice to read when you have some spare time!

The box is decorated like a long road, fitting to the Combat theme. This is one of those boxes that would make a fantastic shadowbox, though, personally, I plan to turn it inside out and use it for holiday presents! 

I enjoyed this box, but not as much as the last box, since I felt like the gift tags and the magnets were a bit cheap, and there weren’t too many fandoms that I was into. However, the Fallout 4 bobble head was the best item in this crate, in my opinion, but I wouldn’t count out the rest of the crates, as Loot Crate, for those of you who enjoy knick-knacks and other collectables, it’s a neat investment that you should definitely try out at least once!
