Exclusive “Stand Firm” Shirt – Value $15?

This shirt was made exclusively for the crate by Firefly Costume Designer, Shawna Trpcic. That, in itself, is so cool! Does anyone know what exactly this is referencing? Is it just about the war? Did we see this on the show?

Zoe Washburn Qm Mini Masters – Value $20-25

The best part of collecting this box is building out the Mini Masters Firefly collection! Zoe is the latest edition – and she looks ready to battle, as per usual.

QBit Figure – Value $10-15?

You’ll also get a blind box QBit figure. Up to this point in the subscription, it seems as though you’ll get one of two possible figures each delivery. This month I pulled Malcolm Reynolds!

This month you could have received Malcolm or Hoban Who did you get?

Serenity Journal – Value $10-15?

Next up is a faux-leather journal. I’ve received a lot of journals in subscription boxes – and they’re useful to me for keep notes – this is easily one of the best I’ve received. The faux-leather is firm enough to use as a good backing for writing, while still being a bit flexible for transporting.

Independents SDCC 2016 Chellange Coin – Value ?

This coin comes straight to us from SDCC 2016 – which is nice for us unlucky people that couldn’t attend. One side says “Keep Flying” with a partial shot of Serenity. The other says “Never Forget Serenity Valley”. I don’t have much use for collector coins – but it’s one of the cooler ones I’ve received.

Zoe Certificate of Valor – Value $5?

They include a replica Certificate of Valor for Zoe from her life as a soldier.

Firefly Cargo Crate July 2016 - 6

Big Damn Heroes pin – Value $5?

This month’s pin comes straight from Zoe’s line in the show:

Exported From Hera Sticker – Value $2?

So far, there has always been a stick from a location in the ‘Verse as well – this month is from Hera.

Verdict: I’ve really been enjoying Firefly Cargo Crate so far – this keep the good times rolling. Overall, I’m totally in it from the Mini Master vinyl figures now – I’m a completionist, I NEED to finish the set now! For me, there has yet to be an issue with value, either – if you’re a fan of the show, you’re going to love all the loot in your crate!

  1. I would have happy if I had received half of my items but this my 3rd box and I didn’t get half of the items and for $40 I am getting pissed!
    Loot crate hasn’t stood behind this and they haven’t made it right.
    I order 2 boxes because there are 2 of us that are BDH in the family and we don’t want to share so it is really upsetting to have one person getting things and the other is missing things…

  2. Another great box. Loved the challenge coin and the journal and most of all the T-shirt. The 60’s sci fi style was great. I love getting unique shirts like this one. Can’t wait until the next box.

  3. Totally agreed about the shirt being bizarre. A bikini-and-fur-boots wearing woman surfing with a glow stick?? For a Zoe box? I just don’t get it.

    I had been excited to get something from Shawna Trpcic, but I’m disappointed. I know boxes can’t please everyone, but come on, a Zoe box deserves better than this.

    • I don’t understand why they couldn’t send a replica of her necklace, belt or bracelet. Why that shirt?

  4. I haven’t gotten my box yet so maybe I’ll like it a bit more in person, but I’m a bit concerned about the t-shirt. It really doesn’t seem to fit with Zoe. :/ The other stuff looks great though!

  5. Please everyone… contact Firefly crate and complain about the tee… I spoke to them and they said unless people tell them they will keep sending tees like this!!! I actually just cancelled my subscription.

  6. I agree with Jeremy about the shirt. I was incredibly upset by it. I don’t think I can wear it anywhere because it’s so overly sexualized. It was quite offensive, especially for Zoë’s character. Really disappointed.

  7. I worry some about the QBits, if they’re random, will I end up with two the same rather than a collection of all of them? Or do they know what they’re sending out? I can’t be bothered with swapping them or headiing to ebay

  8. We love Firefly and most of the Whedonverse. That shirt design is unbearably lame. A mini-bikini? Really? In the Zoe box? What kind of Gamergate pandering is this? Inara is never scantily dressed and she’s a professional courtesan. LAME.

    • How in the world is this even remotely gamergate pandering?

  9. Need box ASAP… New subscriber.

  10. Amazing once again! High quality and unique items easily exceeding the price tag (I would put my estimate at $89 value). Love this box of happiness!
