Deadpool Tacos Shirt – Value $10?

I’m loving this month’s exclusive shirt. Naturally, there have been a lot of Deadpool shirts in boxes this month, and I think this one is (at least) a tie with the I <3 Chimichangas shirt from Geek Fuel. I love the graphic design, and it’s all around classic Deadpool.

Deadpool Q-Fig Figure – Value $20?

This is AWESOME. Easily the highlight of this month’s box is the exclusive Deadpool Q-Fig! They also made a rare X-Force variant of this that some lucky subscribers received. I loved the Q-POP Batman figure last year, but this one is so much better.

Here’s a look at the details and size of it. I’m LOVING this item. Early contender for favorite geek item of the month!

The Walking Dead Big Head Figure – Value $5-10?

The exclusive McFarlane item this month was one of three possible Big Head figures. I think these are exclusive right now, and not for sale to the general public, but we were able to see many different Big Head characters in pictures from NYTF 2016 – so I’d expect a whole lot of them this year.

You have to construct each character. I also really want the shopping spree!

They’re small but detailed. At first, I was a little bummed that this was the McFarlane item. But, while constructing it, I was wowed by the little details. They’re as tall as a Funko mystery mini but super detailed. I might have to start collecting these. This is how it starts 🙂

The Walking Dead Soap-On-A-Rope – Value $5-10?

The last item is an exclusive homage to Daryl Dixon. When we first met Daryl on the show, he’d keep the ears of walkers that he encountered. This is a fun item to show off your TWD fandom.

Monthly Pin

Here is this month’s pin. A zombie Loot Crate box!

Verdict: This month is another all exclusive box from Loot Crate! I’m loving the “quality over quantity” approach they’ve been making recently, and I think this box is another great example of that. The Deadpool items are fantastic – and might include my favorite item of the month – and TWD items are fun too. The Q-FIG alone makes this month a huge win for me!

  1. I got the Daryl mini – which I love – but he keeps falling apart no matter how careful I am at snapping the pieces together.

    • Yeah I got Daryl and after a lot of falling limbs and getting that crossbow wasn’t easy, I managed to assemble it perfectly and matches the Daryl on my “Rick and Daryl” poster. Gotta be patient with it. You probably got it by now.

  2. I thought this was a pretty solid box. Like you said, the Deadpool Q-Fig is really cool! I also subscribe to Nerd Block and between the two boxes, the Deadpool figure has been my favorite item this month.

    I was slightly disappointed with The Walking Dead mini figure, simply because I received the burned (I guess?) walker. The amount of detail is impressive for such a small figure and assembly is simple. I was kind of hoping for Rick or Daryl, but I suppose I can’t complain too much since it’s randomly distributed. Overall, pretty terrific Loot Crate!

  3. I think this was my son’s favorite Lootcrate so far! He is off to a robotics competition and is ready to prank his roommates with the string of ears (oh boy). I loved the Walking Dead figure (we got Rick) and the fact that there are sets to collect, like Dale’s RV.

  4. I got a white variant figure, how rare do you think this is? Just curious…

    • Apparently there was a 1 out of 10 chance for the variant. I received it too and I think it looks incredible!

  5. I received Daryl minifigure and I got the variant white Deadpool figure.
    This month’s pin unlocked the Walking Dead Road to Survival which had a $10 value listed.
    Daryl started collecting the Walker ears when he went to go search for Sophia alone.

  6. Are there any boxes that send women’s sized shirts as an option? I love this stuff but would never wear the “unisex” shirts–now if they were my size, they would be my favorite things in the boxes!

    • Good news – Loot Crate offers women’s sizing as T-Shirt options! They also have a wearables subscription called Level Up that also has specific women’s sizes. Hope that helps! 🙂

      • Oh yes, it does!! Thank you!!!

        • Just a word of caution on the women’s sizes of shirts from Loot Crate (by the way Geek Fuel also has a women’s fitted shirt)….these run very small. I wear a large to xl in old navy clothing and in Loot Crate shirts I wear a xxl to xxxl. So size up a bit.

    • Loot Crate has had a women’s fit choice for at least 2 years. I just always size up.

  7. My sister was impressed by the Walking Dead, too. She got Rick, and said the figure looked more like the actor than the picture on the packaging.

  8. Great box! ?
