December 2014 Loot Crate Review: ANNIVERSARY!


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 December is Anniversary. You'll find items from Funko POP!, Simpsons, and Guardians Of The Galaxy. Heres what i received from Loot Crate this month:

EXCLUSIVE The Joker Batman-Batman POP! Vinyl Figure: This has got to be THE best item EVER. I am obsessed with Funko vinyls, I have started quite a collection especially from the Batman collection. I believe this is a very rare item since its a combination of the Joker and Batman and you cannot get this item anywheres else. Estimated retail cost for the figure is $25.


Simpsons Cast Mighty Wallet: I have always wanted a mighty wallet and now i'm very excited to have my very first one. On top of that its a Simpsons one which is even better. You can tell from my video just how excited I was when I saw this. Estimated retail cost for the wallet is $10.


EXCLUSIVE Batman Comic Book Issue #36: I always love when they include comics in the crates. As a comic book collector this excites me very much and can't wait to add it to my collection. Estimated retail cost for the book is $15.


EXCLUSIVE Dancing Groot Crew Socks: Since I am just about to move to a colder climate these socks will come in handy, and double plus they are Groot socks. The downside of these socks is wether the fact my husband will fight me for them. Estimated retail cost for the socks are $10.


Captain America Air Freshner: Most people know already I am definitely not a Captain American fan. This item will most likely go to someone who is. Maybe if it was orange to match our car i'd consider it. Estimated retail cost for the item is $8.


Tetris Sticker Set: Oh the possibilities with this. Definitely fun to put together and they really look like you are playing Tetris. Apparently this can be placed on pretty much any type of material. Estimated retail cost for the stickers are $5.


EXCLUSIVE Ghostbusters Door Hanger: Not really sure what you do with this since i'm kinda a grown up now and apparently grownups should not hang these on doors, unless you have kids, then thats totally acceptable. This will have to go displayed somewhere on the wall. Estimated retail cost for the figure is $5.


Crunchyroll Flyer: I love that Crunchyroll is getting a bunch of attention now. I use them quite often for anime, manga and most of all my drama shows. Estimated retail cost null void.


Themed Button: Button Swag


Once again our lovely box has turned into an awesome display case for your collectables.




I am IN LOVE with this box, entirely. Between the Funko Vinyl, the comic, and the mighty wallet my brain has exploded with excitement. Everything in this box made it for me. It felt as if they created this box solely for my existence only. Hands down this box was worth every penny. So after calculating the amount all together I say it all came to around $80.

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.

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.

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.
