Loot Crate Subscription Box Review & Coupon - Sept 2014 Alien

Funko ReAction Alien Figure – Dallas – Value $11

I love the vintage looking packaging of the Funko ReAction line! (Subscribers received one of five different Alien figures).

Funko Science Fiction Vinyl Figure Mystery Mini – Value $10

Even though we’re not big science-fiction fans, two Funko items in any geek box is impressive! This will probably be swapped!

I planned to give this to one of our Star Trek fan friends, but our dog claimed it a few seconds after this picture was taken!

Han Solo Fold Out Poster – Value $5?

Verdict: I think Loot Crate did an excellent job with the Galactic theme this month. The genre isn’t really for us, but I know so many people who would love this box, and the value is there too – approximately $45 worth of items.

What did you think of Loot Crate this month?

  1. I was a little disappointed with this box. My personal preference is that they al contain a shirt, but I know that’s a little unrealistic! The only item my husband even liked was the Alien figure.

  2. I was actually happy there was no shirt! I hate shirts that aren’t v necks and I really just don’t wear t-shirts ever, except to sleep in. I’d rather have more *stuff* than another shirt. It’d be nice if they had a premium Crate or something that had a shirt, the way iBBeautiful does!

  3. I was sad they didn’t include a shirt… so many possibilities for that.

  4. We’re HUGE Firefly fans…. I watched it when it was really on and indoctrinated my kids as soon as they hit about 10 years old… so we were excited by the pre-box emails including a FF homage video. But we’re disappointed to not get a shirt, I think for the 2nd month in a row???

  5. I wasn’t thrilled with the Alien fig, I would have preferred Star Wars or BSG, but I LOVED the Firefly stuff, and so did my husband!

    Captain Tightpants is now happily hanging out with other figures on my bookshelves 🙂

  6. Loved this box so much!!
    Firefly is one of my favorite shows and it use to not have any merch until recently.

  7. I’d cancelled Loot Crate many months ago because most of the items were a miss for me each month. When I heard this month’s theme, though, I quickly re-subscribed. Thank goodness! This hit my happy spot pretty much all around. The only item I put up for swap is the poster. Everything else really represented things I adore, and the box turned into a family bonding thing, since my kids have only seen new shows we watch, like Doctor Who.

    First, we loaded up Amazon Prime on the TV and watched the “Trouble with Tribbles” episode from Star Trek TOS (my favorite series of the Star Treks–I’m one of those uber geeks who can recite all the lines). Then we put the plush tribble on top of the door to my husband’s closet so it would fall on him when he opened it, just like when Kirk is being pummeled by tribbles falling from the storage locker.

    Next, the kids set up Captain Malcolm in the fridge on top of the cookies, so he could protect them. We then watched the first episode of Firefly (we have the whole series on DVD, natch).

    I got the Alien figure, not Dallas, so my son put it under the sheet on my husband’s side of the bed, so he’d be alarmed when he lay down. Only my older daughter (age 10) is ok to watch Alien, so I’m waiting for the weekend to show it to her at night (she likes scary stuff like I do).

    The Pop Rocks were enjoyed by all. The money was handed off to the kids for their next pretend store play session. The magnet–and I NEVER have enough fridge magnets–is holding up reminder notices for school stuff. The poster got swapped for an Adventure Time puzzle. 🙂

    Best. Box. Ever.

    • I enjoyed reading how much your family liked the box. You should send this message to Loot Crate too!

    • I loved hearing about your family too! You should totally tell Loot Crate!

  8. My 14 year old son really loved this box. His suggested improvements would be more Star Wars and less Star Trek, oh, and maybe add a sprinkle of Battlestar Galactica.

    • I’m sick to death of all the Star Wars stuff and I’m really a Trekker anyway, so I’d argue with that first part. But Galactica would be great!

      • I love Star trek and Star wars, so more of those and yuck wish there was no Alien or Firefly. Basically every geek is different. Yay for swapping and dumping on family members.
