Loot Gaming Subscription Box Review + Coupon May 2016 - booklet and pin

Here is this month’s information booklet – the ‘Game Manual’ – and pin.

Here’s a closer look at the Dungeon pin -I’ve been impressed with all of the Loot Gaming pins so far, I like the token style of each one.

And here’s a look inside the booklet. Inside you’ll find details on each item in the box along with extra details on the game/movie/show that was featured on that item.

Loot Gaming Subscription Box Review + Coupon May 2016 - shirt front

Dark Souls 3 Shirt – Value $15?

This month’s shirt features Dark Souls 3. On the front, you’ll see the crest of the knight Solaire of Astora – who is the Knight of Sunlight. I actually love this description of him from a Dark Souls Wiki:

He is a cheerful and powerful knight who does not let the crumbling world affect his mood. He speaks of willingly becoming an Undead so that he could search for his own sun.

On the back, we see the knight in detail. In the game – ‘Praise the Sun’ is a gesture you can make your character perform – hence the quote “Do You Even Praise?”.

Loot Gaming Subscription Box Review + Coupon May 2016 - doom glass

DOOM Glass – Value $5-10?

There was a bit of a mixup with their original DOOM item they had planned on featuring – the fake blood leaked in shipping causing a delay and the need to find a different item. This is that item, and I think it’s actually really cool.

This is as good of a look as I could get of the front and back detail of this glass. I really like the lower bloody portion – this glass certainly screams DOOM to me. It also just reminded me of playing DOOM on Sega 32X – does anyone remember 32X?!

Cute But Deadly Vinyl Figure – Value $10 on Amazon

Speaking of the shipping fiasco – this item was included as a bonus for the delay. These are blind box vinyl figures from the Cute But Deadly Blizzard game.

Here is the vinyl that I pulled. I don’t play this game, but this is now the second blind box vinyl I’ve received from Cute But Deadly, and I’ve really liked both! Maybe that means I should try the game?

Loot Gaming Subscription Box Review + Coupon May 2016 - zelda dog tags

Legend of Zelda Dog Tag – Value $5-10?

The next item is from Zelda. It’s a zinc alloy and faux leather dog tag set.

Here’s a closer look at the design of each tag.

Warcraft Flag – Value $10-15?

This is one flag, and what you’re seeing above is both sides of the flag. Choose your allegiance with the Horde or Alliance! It’s a decent size flag as well, measuring 18 x 24 inches.

Loot Gaming Subscription Box Review + Coupon May 2016 - Uncharted 4

Uncharted Journal – Value $10?

The final item in the box is a faux leather-bound journal from Uncharted. I actually really like this item – it looks and feels nice, I’ll have to keep it around for note taking.

On the inside, you’ll find a nicely detailed map as well!

Verdict: I didn’t have the highest hopes this month since most of the featured games were ones that I don’t play – but overall, it was a decent box. I think there’s definite room for improvement in getting towards their vision of bringing items out of the game and into this box – which worked this month for the Uncharted journal, but not much else. That being said, I thought the other items were mostly high quality (and no prints!) – especially the DOOM glass, which turned out to be my favorite item of the month. I will say, I REALLY would like to know what the original DOOM item was that was canceled due to fake blook leakage!

  1. I love how you can invert these boxes! Thanks for showing that!

    Resident Blizzard fanatic here. I love the flag is two sided, I know recently there was a Warcraft box and I think it was a pin (?) that you get one or the other faction emblem, which could be pretty disappointing if you’re loyal to your own like me!

    Also, not that it matters really or that anyone cares but ‘Cute But Deadly’, isn’t a Blizzard game. Its just the name of that line of blind boxes. The character you unboxed is from Starcraft (I think he may be on Heroes of the Storm also). A fun fact though – Blizzard tried trademarking ‘Cute But Deadly’ which caused some buzz about a game but…I’m not really sure where that went!

  2. I was thinking the original DOOM item was one of those double-walled plastic cups with the fluid in the middle. It would have had a similar look to the glass, but with the blood sloshing around more. That said, I love the glass, and think it may have been better than what we were supposed to get originally.
