Each month comes with an information card and themed pin. Unfortunately, mine was missing the Blade Runner pin – which is one of the best pins yet!
Fallout 4 Headphones – Value $20-25?
The first item in the box is a pair of exclusive headphones.
Each side is branded for Fallout 4 – which is cool. Overall, the quality of the headphones leaves a bit to be desired. They are pretty lightweight and heavy in the low-end for sound quality.
Blade Runner Police Spinner – Value $15-20?
The next item is a model Police car from Blade Runner!
I’m a total sucker for little toys and statues like this – and it’s great to get something from Blade Runner!
Mirror’s Edge Watch – Value $25-30?
They include a higher quality watch from Mirror’s Edge.
It’s essentially a more formal version of the watch from the April Loot Gaming – which I can appreciate. Overall – it’s a nice watch with some subtle Mirror’s Edge flair to it. I typically don’t like the more formal version of items – but I like this better than the Loot Gaming version.
Art of Bioshock Book – Value $30+
This is my favorite item of the bunch. This beautiful Bioshock art book is exclusive to Loot Crate!
It takes you through different cities in the game to things like weapon and ship designs – I absolutely love this item.
Escape From New York Art Print – Value $10?
The final item in the box is a print from the classic dystopian movie Escape From New York. I was a bit young and didn’t watch this one that much – but I remember the follow-up, years later, Escape from LA!
Verdict: I thought this was a good Loot Crate DX, and that opinion is against popular opinion. I got this box very late, so I had seen all of the negative reviews, and it may have set my expectations lower – which led me to like the box. The book is beautiful, the watch is really nice and quality, the statue is cool and unique. The headphones aren’t the highest of quality – but I like the Fallout design and I would use them in a pinch. With that in mind, I think it was a good box – but it might be a tough crate for Loot Crate with it being such a vast selection for each theme.
