This month featured Jayne Cobb! The first box featured Kaylee – so it seems as though each delivery will have a “hero” character to it – that seems like a perfect idea for show that was only one season and a movie (and comics)!
The Signal is Cargo Crate’s informational mini magazine. In here you’ll find details about each of the month’s items, interviews, and looter pics.
Dead Fish T-Shirt – Value $15?
This shirt was actually one of the spoiler items this month. It was worn by Jayne in an episode of the show. I’m loving this shirt. I like the graphic and the color – this wasn’t worn much on the show (to my knowledge), but none the less, it’s a great pick for this month’s shirt.
Each month comes with a themed pin as well. This month’s theme was “Let’s Be Bad Guys” – which goes nicely with Jayne! I’m not big on pins, but this one is great, and features Jayne favorite gun, Vera!
Qm Mini Masters Figure – Value $20-25?
This line of figures is made exclusively for Loot Crate (they could possibly be on sale to the general public at a later date, though). I love the detail in the Jayne figure (and in the previous Kaylee figure!) – these are really the hero item in each box, you’ll be getting this until they feature each character from the show.
Here’s the collection to date – It’s going to be awesome once it’s all built out!
QBit Figure – Value $10-15?
Next up is a QBits blind box figure! These are little, Funko POP-esqe, PVC figures.
You could have received either Kaylee or Shepherd this month – I got Shepherd!
Jayne Cobb Flask – Value $10?
I don’t have much use for a flask these days – but this is still one of the coolest flasks I’ve seen! I feel like this could be a party hit with any Firefly fan!
Jayne Cobb Coin – Value $10?
This is a fun item this month. I was curious how they’d integrate “The Hero of Canton” and his subsequent statue into this month’s box. On the back of the coin, we get a shot of his famous statue and see that the coin is worth a pint of Mudders’ Milk (of which there is a recipe in the mini magazine).
The front highlights Jayne in his hero status on Higgins’ Moon. This was easily one of my favorite episodes from the run.
Jaynestown Sticker – Value $3?
They also include a Jaynestown sticker to commemorate the statue.
Jayne Cobb Wanted Poster – Value $5-10?
The last item is a print. They made it a little more fun by making it look like a confidential folder that you unfold to find Jayne Cobb’s wanted poster. I think everyone knows my stance on prints these days.
Verdict: I’ve had a blast unboxing both Cargo Crates so far! It’s a bigger investment than the Core Crate, but I’m wondering if the price will come down with quantity over time? The value is definitely there, but the price point is probably a bit of a deterrent. The two vinyl figures are worth it alone if you’re a collector like me.
What did you think of the second Firefly Cargo Crate?
