I’ve been pretty antsy to get this box in my hands for the first time. This is a first dedicated Marvel subscription box that isn’t from Funko – so if you aren’t into Funko items, and have been craving some Marvel gear – this is your chance!

Each delivery will be themed and our first box goes right along with November’s major movie, Doctor Strange – the theme is Mystics!

This month’s info card is based on the book design – it looks like a page torn out of The Book of Sins, the Darkhold (more on that later)!

On the back, you’ll find details on each item in the box.

Like all Loot Crate crates, it will come with a themed pin – this month’s pin is Dormammu. I’m loving the gold/jet black detail on this pin – I hope they’re all like this!

Doctor Strange Cloak of Levitation Robe – Value $25-30?

If you’re summoning some morning coffee in your personal sanctum sanctorum, why not do it like a Sorcerer Supreme in this exclusive robe!

The collar is HUGE, it’s impossible to see to your left or right while wearing this – don’t worry, you don’t need to see with your eyes when you have the Eye of Agamotto! You can lay the collar down flat on your shoulders – but it’s a bit uncomfortable to sit with it.

It’s soft and thin, and a bit higher quality than I thought it might be from the spoilers. It’s a 65/35 Polyester/Cotton blend – this might be more of a post-shower robe than a lounge robe.

I mentioned the Darkhold earlier, because this months box inverts into just that!

Did I mention that we had A BLAST photographing it?

Doctor Strange vs. Baron Mordo Coaster Set – Value $10-15?

The robe had the fun factor, but these were my favorite items in the box. These are 4 steel coasters with dense foam bottoms – 2 are laser-engraved with Doctor Strange, and the other two with his nemesis, Baron Mordo.

I’m very much a fan of both the over-the-top Marvel stuff, like the robe, and the subtle Marvel touches in these coasters.

Scarlet Witch Toothpick Holder set – Value $10-15?

Doctor Strange went ahead and summoned some toothpick holders out of two shot glasses for you. These feature Wanda Maximoff, a.k.a. Scarlet Witch.

Immortal Iron Fist Art Print – Value $15+?

Ok – if you’re going to include a print, this is how it should look! This is easily the best print sent in a geek box yet. It’s big – coming in a 8 x 13 inches, it’s the largest unfolded/not-rolled-up print we’ve received.

marvel-gear-and-goods-loot-crate-october-2016-0017

It’s on quality paper – not unlike the Loot Crate DX prints, this is printed on a really high-quality, textured, paper, it’s got the look that it was pulled straight off of David Aja’s sketch desk! And finally, it’s beautiful and awesome – not much to say here, a couple beautiful cells to get your even more amped for Iron Fist in March!

Verdict: This box was much more exciting once it was in my hands than it was from spoiler pictures on Instagram. While a lot of the value was found in the robe (and that item had been spoiled since NYCC), the other items still packed a punch. They promised apparel, collectibles, and home goods – I think they hit the mark on all of those fronts in their first box. Personally, I’m very excited to see where this box is going – I had a lot of fun unboxing this month’s crate.

What did you think of the first-ever Marvel Gear + Goods from Loot Crate?
