This month had 5 items + a pin. It featured Power Rangers, Tetris, Robotech, Game of Thrones, and Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them!

Each delivery comes with and information card that unfolds to detail each item in your box.

Each month always includes a pin as well – these are usually bigger than the core crate pins, too. This month’s pin features the Megazord just like the core Loot Crate – except this is much bigger.

Loot Wear Sock – Value $8.99

This was the first month without a big wearable item. Instead, you’ll get a pair of mystery socks featured in past Loot Wear subscriptions. I got a pair of glow-in-the-dark Harry Potter socks!

I have a feeling that most will be disappointed that these were included instead of a new shirt – but I’m always happy to get new socks.

Game of Thrones McFarlane Construction Set – Value $18 on Amazon

From the vague spoilers we received, I had a hunch that this might be the Game of Thrones item.

I’ve already built this set before, so I already know that it’s a great and detailed McFarlane build.

What I was most disappointed about when finished was that there are no other big Game of Thrones McFarlane builds to do!

Robotech Veritech Fighter Figure – Value $50+?

This is an exclusive variant, but the normal build sets for Robotech are available on Amazon from $45-$50 – so that’s what I’m basing value on.

This is my first time seeing one of these – and being someone that enjoy figures and statues, I was pretty intrigued. These robots are cool.

Each figure is 1/100 scale with 30 points of articulation and can for m3 forms – Battloid, Guardian, and Fighter. This one comes with an exclusive variant paint job.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them Incredibuild Swooping Evil Book & Model Set – Value $16 on Amazon

That was the long name of an item I’ve ever reviewed! This is a 3D wood model set featuring the Swooping Evil from Fantastic Beasts.

It also includes a creature guidebook that gives you some information about the Swooping Evil along with some movie character information.

It’s pretty cool looking once it’s completed and stand about 6 1/2 inches to the wing tips.

Tetris Salt & Pepper Shakers – Value $15?

The final item in the box is another exclusive – this time from Tetris.

These are ceramic salt and pepper shakers that interlock!

Verdict: I love build sets like the ones sent this month – so this was a really good month for me. It would have been cool to get a LEGO build set too – since that would’ve aligned with the core crate franchises. But, even without that, it was a strong month in my opinion. It felt almost tailor made for me – build sets + socks – that’s right up my alley, so I’m curious to hear what you thought of it!

What did you think of the February 2017 ‘BUILD’ Loot Crate DX?

  1. I got fallout 4 socks instead, wish i got those harry potter ones!

  2. Those salt and pepper shakers are the bomb! BTW Eric thanks for fixing my email dilemma for me .

  3. I must find and have those salt and pepper shakers! What an amazing item!

  4. Just an FYI on the GoT building sets, its seems that McFarlane Toys has done away with the Walking Dead and GoT lines as neither have had anything new released since early in 2016. If you can find a Toys R Us that still has any in stock they are marked as clearance. Just saw this set the other day at one marked down to $15

  5. I’m disappointed that the items I most wanted weren’t exclusive (fantastic beasts and got). And I love Tetris, but not super into salt/pepper shakers. I will probably like the socks, I’ve always wanted to sub, but never have.
