The first item I pulled out (I think I naturally drift to POPs) is a Fallout Funko POP! This is an awesome POP, and new to my collection!

Here’s a close up of the detail – it’s a solid POP and has some weight to it.

I really like the Funko mystery minis line – so this is a win for me!

Lootaku Subscription Box Review + Coupon February 2016 - comic and vault boy

Plants vs Zombies Comic #1 – Value $2.99

They include a Plants vs Zombies comic. This is something I never got into, I think I missed the window on this game.

Vault Boy Bobblehead – Value $22.47 on Amazon

The final item is a Vault Boy bobblehead. This is my second bobblehead – We received an exclusive pose in the November Loot Crate. You received one of 7 possible poses, I received the strength pose.

Here’s a look at the bobblehead out of the box.

Verdict: I thought there were great items in my first Lootaku box, but they may have an issue with value when shipping to the US. My total comes to around $54 when buying these items from where I’d normally buy online, which makes this box more expensive for me to buy vs buying all the items individually. They list a $77 value on their card – but it must be based on MSRP since the prices I found were much lower for their higher price items. I’m not sure I’ve ever paid $25 for a POP. This was a really fun box, I loved that they stuck to the theme and I really enjoyed the items, if they could find a way to make it lower priced (I think $49 is the most expensive geek box) – they’d be really competitive.

What do you think of the February Lootaku? have you tried this box?

  1. Hi guys! Thanks for the feedback!
    Here’s a bit of explanation for the pricing. We were originally tailored for the Asia region, where toys generally have a huge markup, so the box was made to give people here really good value compared to if they were to buy the items themselves. For overseas customers, they would see less value for themes like these where we import all the items from the States. Our strengths are anime themes where we can source our figures straight from Hong Kong and Japan, and during those themes, overseas customers will see more value than what they paid for.
    I agree this box hasn’t really hit the mark regarding value for our overseas subscribers, but this is also the first box where we’ve imported everything from States so we’re working on it!
    You will see a much higher value for the next two boxes as there are more items that we source from over here (next box will have a full sized anime figure). Our March box, just based on Amazon prices, is around $67-$70usd if you were to buy all the items individually. Our April box which is currently open for subscriptions will be our highest value box to date, at over $100usd based on amazon pricing.

  2. If this was the same price as the Nerd Block range and Loot Crate then this box would be full of win and I would sign up straight away but it would cost me around £47 a month as opposed to £21/£22.
    Nice try guys but not for me!

    Was this a 1 off review box guys or are they planning on sending more?
    I’d be interested to see if they read comments like this and change their pricing strategy.

    • Hey Jay,

      Yes – they are sending more over to the best of our knowledge. They mention that they send statues, so that would make them pretty unique from other geek box, so that’s the type of thing that I’m hoping for next month. We’ll see!

      • Excellent! I’ll keep a look out for future reviews!
        I already have Nerd Classic, Arcade, Horror, Sci-Fi and my work partner does Loot Crate which we do unboxing videos on (check out my YouTube channel ‘The Gamer Shack’) and we’re currently looking for additional boxes to add to that mix which is where you guys do us a great service in being able to see current and past reviews (thanks to your previous reviews and comment section for My Geek Box it helped us avoid that one) on all geek & gaming crates. This one has interested me as there are some good items but the price kinda puts me off!

  4. I agree with you about the value. With so many geek / gamer boxes for sale now this may be a hard sell at this price point unless it was loaded with exclusives.
    Also if anyone is looking for a new home for their plants vs zombies comics please let me know. My little girl loves them and reads them over and over at her twice weekly oncology appointments.
