Exclusive Batman ’66 Q-Pop Figure – Value $15-20?

I pulled the value from the edition of this that is for sale. But, the Batman ’66 TV Series version is a Loot Crate exclusive which does increase the value. I love this vinyl figure. A lot. I may have to do some research and start collecting some Q-Pop figures.

The ‘Kapow’ pulls off and there is a mini dry-erase board that you can write messages on. Also – you don’t have to include the speech bubble at all, it just pops off.

The League of Regrettable Superheroes – Value $13-15

This book comes with an exclusive cover from Loot Crate. I’m excited to read this, and I love the concept. The book introduces fifty of the strangest superheroes ever written.

You know about Batman, Superman, and Spiderman, but have you heard of Doll Man, Doctor Hormone, or Spider Queen? In The League of Regrettable Superheroes, you’ll meet one hundred of the strangest superheroes ever to see print, complete with backstories, vintage art, and colorful commentary. So prepare yourself for such not-ready-for-prime-time heroes as Bee Man (Batman, but with bees), the Clown (circus-themed crimebuster), the Eye (a giant, floating eyeball; just accept it), and many other oddballs and oddities.

This is a great discovery for me this month!

And here’s a look at the art work and writing style.

Wonder Woman Poster – Value $8-10?

I could only find the full size version of this poster online. This one is a much small, glossy, print. I really like the art style of this print.

Brawlhalla Download Card – Value $12.99 on Steam

The preview of the game looks great! I’m excited to see it’s available on both PC and Mac (some of the other Steam downloads I’ve receive weren’t available for Mac) – I’m excited to try it out.

Star Trek Air Freshener – Value $1?

Great design for any Trekkie out there!

Batman Multi-Tool Keychain – Value $9

This is a definite keeper. This batarang style multi-tool has a philips and flathead screwdriver, plus a bottle opener. I will admit though, I was tempted to throw it like a batarang as soon as I opened it. Liz would not have been too happy.

Legend of Zelda Sweatband – Value $5?

I couldn’t find this wristband for sale anymore – so the value is just a guess. I don’t wear wristbands, so this is probably a swap candidate.

Verdict: First off, I appreciate that there was not a t-shirt this month. I find that I typically am impartial to the t-shirts more often than not. I’m pretty amazed by the value the Loot Crate can get into their boxes while keeping the price point lower than most other boxes in the category. This month didn’t disappoint for me. I love both Batman items and the book, those were enough to make it a win for me.

What did you think of this month’s Loot Crate?

  1. The batman tool is awesome and well made. My BF loved it.
    The book is fun to flip through and love looking at the art.
    The game invite is great.

    I wish all loot crates were this good of a value. June was my first and I was very disappointed and I felt unfulfilled and I regretted I spent the money. This one felt worth it to me.

  2. In my humble opinion, Loot Crate is on a tear. This month was the Batman Figure. Last month was Terminator Skull. Lots of original stuff that I have never seen before. And gosh, there is something about a full color hard cover book that makes me happy. I love Nerd Block. But Loot Crate is right up there in quality, creativity, and price.

  3. I’m so insanely excited for this box! We also ordered the Comic-Con Lootcrate box and that should be arriving within the next few days. I cannot wait to see what they have for us!

    • Please post what you receive in the Comic Con edition. My boys are excited that there is a Fallout 4 edition planned for the fall.

      • I will defiantly share. It’s such a fun concept and I can’t wait! It’s a surprise for my son who has just started collecting vinyl figures and other Sci-Fi stuff.

      • There’s a Fallout 4 themed what?

      • The Comic-Con Lootcrate was really interesting but lacked a theme. It included a Godzilla T-Shirt, Q-Pop Ghostbusters character, a mini Q-Pop vinyl Ghostbusters figure, a raptor claw key chain that is really well made and very heavy from Jurassic World, three creature trading cards in an black envelope, a pin from Comic-Con, a luggage tag with Weyland-Yutani Corp (Firefly), and a certificate of authenticity to show that everything was exclusive to Comic-Con. I think it was a good box overall and my son loved it. He has been carrying around all of his POP and Q-Pop figures for the last week. He recently discovered them after a trip to the arcade he used his tickets to buy a POP Spock and Worf. I will be transitioning him over to the Marvel POP sub box since that is what he actually is more intereted in. I did like how increadably unique all of the items from the Comic-Con box were. Definately going to try and go to our local one next January!!! I am annoyed with Lootcrate with our July box…we still haven’t received the actual box and about three weeks after we were emailed the tracking number for it we received another email from Lootcrate with another tracking number and no explination as to what was going on. We received the second box first and the origional should be arriving on Monday or Tuesday. I think that they forgot or somehow our box didn’t have the Batman Q-Pop figure in it and the Spock air freshner because that was all that was in the second box. It is very weird that the add on box would arrive before the origional. Definately rethinking Lootcrate for our family. I do like the items but it seems off somehow. I will have to wait and see one more month.

        • I was actually disappointed with the Comicon box mainly because I feel I got about the same gear I get from a normal box but I paid almost 3 times as much for the CC box, I understand they were SDCC exlusive items but they were Loot Crate booth items not items from the Comicon itself, just felt like they were getting rid of the stuff that they did not sell off in the CC, I guess I had high expectations for this one.

  4. The sweatband comes from Twilight Princess and has since gone out of production. Where still available, it retails for $6.99

  5. I got the batman figure but as soon as i took out the stick that holds the pop bubble broke which was what i loved about the figure :/

  6. I really wanna subscribe to Lootcrate but I need more geek/gamer shirts in my life lol. Eric have you heard of Teeblox? It’s a monthly shirt subscription for $9.99 and they have a few categories of different types of shirts that you can choose to receive.

    • Thank you for mentioning Teeblox. This looks like a great subscription for my teenage boys. They alternate months of Lootcrate and love it.

  7. Man, this is the first geek box I’ve really wanted! That book looks awesome and I *need* a feminist wonder woman poster for my office.

  8. I didn’t get the box this month, but it looks like a great one! I wish there was a way to see what was going to be in boxes while they were still available because I would have definitely bought this one. I also love that there wasn’t a t-shirt! Geek boxes, t-shirts do not need to be in every box! 🙂

    • That’s so funny! I’m upset if there isn’t a t-shirt. I love geeky t-shirts! However, this box is great!

      • I like geeky t-shirts, too, but I’m not crazy about surprise ones. If it’s one you like, great! It’s harder to trade off/give away a t-shirt you aren’t interested in than other items, though. I feel if I want a nice t-shirt, there are enough sites out there (Teefury, Threadless, Shirt.Woot) where I can pick the exact geeky shirt I want. 🙂

  9. I want that book!! I’m attempting to trade for it, as I write this. 🙂

  10. This is the first Loot Crate I’ve enjoyed in months. I’m happy to see it’s full of geeky stuff, not Loot Crate stuff.

  11. Fun review! The Batman multi-tool is pretty cool. Also always love the boxes themselves.
