Loot Crate vs Nerd Block – July 2015!
Previously, on Geek Box Showdown: Nerd Block to the inaugural victory for best box and best item in June. Can they hold on to the top spot in July? Find out below!
Just a note before starting – Since geek boxes are including more and more exclusive items, it’s becoming harder to get a real value, so I figured I’d give a fair estimate of those items. Also, if the review has a value range – I took the high-end of the range.
The Cost: $19.99 plus shipping (Shipping is $8.75 to Canada, $9.50 to US, $12.50 Worldwide)
Number of items: 6
Value of items: $47
Exclusive Items: Cobra’s Motto T-Shirt, Ghostbusters Wallet, Mad Max Variant Cover, Spike Titans Vinyl Figure
Synopsis: This month’s them was Humanity’s Last Hope. I really like 4 of the 6 items I received. The Mad Max comic was a great read, and the mini Iron Man is on my desk as I’m writing this. The value was a bit lower than last month – but it was a good collection of geeky goodies! My favorite item was the Ghostbusters wallet!
The Cost: $13.37 plus $6 shipping a month
Number of items: 7 (not counting the monthly pin)
Value of items: $72.99
Synopsis: This month’s them was Heroes 2. The value comes in well over the cost of this box. I absolutely loved 4 of the 7 items this month. the Q-Pop Batman is phenomenal, and it made me go look for more Q-Pop vinyls only to find very few available :(. Loved the Batman keychain, hardcover book, and the Steam game – Brawlhalla – has been my favorite Steam game from a box yet! This month, the Batman vinyl took the top spot for me!
The Cost: $23.90 a month
Number of items: 6
Value of items: $40 (estimating the poster at $5)
Exclusive Items: All exclusive items this month!
Synopsis: This month didn’t seem to have a theme, at least I couldn’t find it on the card. I was excited for 2 of the 6 items this month, but I couldn’t play the Steam game, because it was PC only – so that was a disappointment for me. That being said – the comic was the item of the box for me, while I haven’t read it yet, I know it’s gonna be ultra enjoyable for me!
The Cost: $19.95 + $6.95 shipping a month for the Deluxe Box, $29.95 + $9.95 shipping for the Premium Box
Number of items: 8
Value of items: $58.94
Exclusive Items: None
Synopsis: This box does not have a theme, although it’s very close to being a super hero/villain box. I was excited for 4 of the 8 items this month. I love the shirt and bobble head, and am excited to read the comic and use the playing cards! My favorite item this month is a tie between the shirt and the bobble head.
Favorite Box: The winner for me was Loot Crate! It ended up having the highest value this month and had tons of fun items!
Favorite Item: My overall favorite item also came from Loot Crate – it was Q-Pop Batman ’66 Vinyl Statue!
