Loot Crate DX-042

Loot Crate DX-046

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!

Loot Crate DX-014

Fallout 4 Headphones – Value $20-25?

The first item in the box is a pair of exclusive headphones.

Loot Crate DX-019

Loot Crate DX-020

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.

Loot Crate DX-021

Blade Runner Police Spinner – Value $15-20?

The next item is a model Police car from Blade Runner!

Loot Crate DX-027

Loot Crate DX-029

I’m a total sucker for little toys and statues like this – and it’s great to get something from Blade Runner!

Loot Crate DX-023

Mirror’s Edge Watch – Value $25-30?

They include a higher quality watch from Mirror’s Edge.

Loot Crate DX-025

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.

Loot Crate DX-033

Art of Bioshock Book – Value $30+

This is my favorite item of the bunch. This beautiful Bioshock art book is exclusive to Loot Crate!

Loot Crate DX-034

It takes you through different cities in the game to things like weapon and ship designs – I absolutely love this item.

Loot Crate DX-037

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.

  1. I liked it-I thought the variety of items was different from the normal stuff and while this box’s franchises didn’t really hit a high note with me I wound up liking the items in the box and was pleasantly surprised.

  2. I have to say that when you are given the box to review I don’t feel you can really appreciate how people who paid for it felt when they received it.

    This box is garbage. Very poor quality headphones even my dad wouldn’t use, a model that is not as advertised, an “exclusive” book that is just a soft cover version of a 3-4 year old book and the rest of the rubbish.

  3. I have a lot of time on my hands which I have been using the last 3 months or so reading and analyzing subscription reviews, I guess because I find enjoyment in weird things, and I really think there is a lot more value and quality in this box than can be found in some of the other subs it would compete with. While none of these particular franchises tweak my geek personally, I am definitely interested in seeing more from this Deluxe box.

    • I agree – Although I haven’t had a DX yet where I was excited about everything in the box, I have a feeling that if I followed all the featured franchises I’d probably love the DX items…maybe not the prints though 🙂

      • The box is indeed worth it, so far it’s been giving out some really awesome things
