Loot Crate DX Subscription Box Review + Coupon – January 2017

This post may contain referral/affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

Loot-Crate-DX-January-2017-0001

Loot Crate DX is Loot Crate’s first monthly Deluxe subscription. They pitch it as an “elevated assortment of collectibles, apparel, home goods and more from your favorite pop culture franchises every month.” They also promise no crossover items from the Core Loot Crate box.

This month’s theme was Origins.

As you can see – my box got really crushed in shipping. Luckily, nothing inside was ruined.

Loot Crate kindly sent us this box to review. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).

Each month always includes a pin as well – these are usually bigger than the core crate pins, too. This month’s pin features one of the original Batman logos!

As you can tell, the paint job isn’t the greatest. Luckily, you can’t tell from a distance.

Batman even has a little cape! It reminds me of the material from a bib you’d wear at the dentist.

Robin has a cape of the same material.

These will go well with all of my Batman stuff – and it’ll be easy to set the scene since they are so bendable. I like that these are a classic style toy of classic characters – it goes well with the ‘Origins’ theme.

Art of Atari Hardcover Book – Value $15-20?

This was a very pleasant surprise this month!

This book was a real flashback for me. I can remember playing Realsports Baseball and Dig Dug SO MUCH when I was really young – so seeing the artwork around those games was just too fun. This is going to be a great ride down memory lane for gamers of the 80’s.

Superman and Batman Metal Signs – Value $20 ($10 each)?

The final item of the month was a set of tin signs that feature classic comic covers!

The artwork is great on each one.

It’s an indented tin sign – it’s the same quality as past tin signs – like the Fallout sign from Loot Gaming.

The Superman tin ties in the reprinted comic that you receive in this month’s Core Crate as well!

Verdict: This wasn’t my favorite DX box – but I did think they stayed with the theme and sent out some fun items for the franchises. My favorite items this month are easily the figures and the book. The other items were fine but didn’t get that “ooooooo” reaction while I was unboxing everything.

What did you think of the January 2017 “Origins” Loot Crate DX?

  1. My box came crushed in shipping as well. It was odd considering Lootcrate always seems to make such study boxes.

  2. Don’t see anywhere near the “$100+ value” in this release.

  3. I agree, I love the figures and the book!!
