The first thing to note was that this was a pretty big box. It’s definitely the size of their special edition crates. It also had weight (thanks to the glasses) – so I was excited to dig in.
It came with a little pamphlet and this jumbo compass pin.
Here’s a better shot of the pin. It’s much bigger than you typical Loot Crate pin – and I thought a compass was a good choice for Quest!
The pamphlet unfolds to show you all items in the box. Every item was an exclusive item, and I expect that for most items in this box. The Loot Crate DX theme is the same as the Core Crate’s theme – so this month’s theme was Quest.
Legend of Zelda Jersey Hoodie – Value $20?
This month’s clothing item is a jersey hoodie featuring the Legend of Zelda Hyrule crest. This is a super thin, t-shirt hoodie.
It’s thin, but also really soft and comfortable. I was a little bummed when I went to put my hands in a front pocket only to find that it doesn’t have one.
It has a giant crest on the back as well. I’m not a big Zelda fan, but I really like this item and would be thrilled to get more stuff like this in the coming months.
Glow-in-the-Dark Adventure Time Puff Jake ‘n Lil’ Finn – Value $40-45?
The non-GITD version retails from $35-40, so I thought it’d be fair to add-on $5 for the exclusivity of this item. Finn in a Jake-suit,. Yes, please! I love Adventure Time, so I was excited to see this in the box (still waiting for my bacon pancakes Loot Pets shirt – I’m looking at you, Loot Crate!).
Here it is out of the box. I love that he’s jammin’ with BMO too!
It was a bit hard to photograph the details, so I made sure to get the back of the box which features the item in non-GITD form. Is it bad that I now want the normal version?
World of Warcraft Lowball Glasses – Value $20-30?
These are some impressive glasses. The first thing I noticed was that they are very well made, and high-quality. The glass is really thick – which is something I look for in a good whiskey glass.
Great detail on each crest. These are not dishwasher safe, though – which is a big minus in my book!
D20 Chilling Dice – Value $15?
These are a pair of (stainless steel?) 20-side die whiskey stones to go with your glasses!
They are, again, well made with a good weight to them. Just don’t drink too fast, I think these could chip a tooth!
“Even Dragons Have Their Endings” Print – Value $10?
The final item is an exclusive print from artist Miquel Membreno. It’s an 8×10 print on thicker card stock. It’s a cool print, but I’m not sure prints fall into the high-end box category for me.
Verdict: My value comes to anywhere between $110-120 for these items. I think it’s a good start for the DX box, and I think they’ll get better down the line as it builds momentum. It was nice to get really quality geeky items, so I think this is a box that could survive the long run – but I’m hoping for no more prints, we get enough of those already.
What did you think of the very first Loot Crate DX?
