Each month comes with a pin as well – Naturally, this featured Washburne with the slogan of the box – I’m a leaf on the wind.

Here’s a better look at the detail – I like that the got Serenity in there!

The Many Faces of Wash Shirt – Value $15?

This month’s Washburne shirt gives you a look into the life of the Serenity pilot! I like this month’s shirt, Washburne was definitely one to deliver some great reactions – so I felt like this fit nicely.

Wash Little Damn Heroes Mini Master Figure – Value $20-25

The collection continues to grow with the exclusive Hogan Washburne QM figure.

Wash is playing with his toy dinosaurs that accompany him in his cockpit – speaking of those dinosaurs…

Inevitable Betrayal Playset – Value $10-15

Replacing the QBit figure this month is a real ode to Wash! Prepare your desk like he prepares the Firefly cockpit with you very own dinosaur set!

The T-Rex is tough to stand up (at least mine was)

They definitely did a really good job in recreating the figures, though!

Continue your Firefly passport with this Beaumonde sticker!

Where in the ‘Verse Planetary Flash Cards – Value $5-10?

This is new to the box, but it seems like it may become an ongoing addition to future boxes too – this month we received cards #36, 80, 105, and 185.

The cards show off Hera, Beaumonde, Persephone, and Higgin’s Moon- which are also the 4 stickers we’ve received in the Firefly Cargo Crate subscription’s first 4 boxes.

I love the informational pieces about the planet on the reverse of the card – these are fun for a Firefly fan.

Firefly Fluxx Saffron Expansion – Value $2?

These cards expand on the Firefly Fluxx card game.

Here are the 4 expansion cards I received – I think everyone receives the same 4, but I’m not 100% sure.

Door Hanger – Value $.50?

They had a little bonus door hanger that is also an ad for the Con Man phone game.

Verdict: I thought the big 3 items – the shirt, figure, and dinosaurs – were great this month! Those big 3 hero items have been great in every box so far and typically hit the value every time. I’ve been impressed with Firefly Cargo Crate so far. This was Loot Crate’s first venture into what are now referred to as a ‘Partner Crate’ – and I think it’s been super successful since you know you’re getting Firefly, and only Firefly – it gets me really excited for the Harry Potter, Marvel, and Sanrio boxes that are upcoming!

What did you think about the Hogan Washburne Firefly Cargo Crate?

  1. This crate sucked … Chinese made Dino toys and a bunch of cards … waste of money!

  2. I love this box! It’s not my all time favorite but it’s still super awesome and 1000% worth it! I hope they bring back the blind box figures, I will miss those if they don’t.

  3. It was missing the mini-fig mystery box. The last 3 had it, why not this one. Seriously, with the 2 month hold-up, tossing one of those in was the least they could do.

  4. What a fun box! All the little details and I love the Dino’s!

  5. I wish they would do something different like the Kaylee bear in the first box instead of t-shirt after t-shirt (3 in a row). This shirt I probably won’t wear and the other two skewed more male demographic as well, especially when only available in unisex sizing.

    • Hoping that’s the case with the December Serenity box!

  6. The shirt is pretty cute this month. Too bad it’s useless to me. I really wish they’d offer women’s sizes. Girls are geeks, too!

  7. I just wish my Crate would hurry up and get to me. Or that Loot Crate customer service would respond to my email regarding not receiving any tracking info (even though they stated in a mass email sent out that tracking would be sent last week). It’s kinda uncool that I was charged for the next one without having received the current one yet. 🙁
