Every month has a different theme, and February’s theme was BUILD. It features new and classic franchises like Lego Dimensions, Lego Batman, Power Rangers, and Tetris!
This month’s box inverts into a friendly Lootbot.
It’s got an arm extension and everything. This was a good kick-off to the theme.
Each month will include a mini magazine as a guided tour through your box.
Inside, you’ll find interviews, stories, and product information.
Every month, you’ll get a Loot Pin. It will be theme and grant you access to some digital loot!
The pin itself is Megazord from Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers! You’ll be able to redeem 3 comics from Comixology with your pin – Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers #0-1 and Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers: Pink #1!
Megazord Shirt – Value $15?
Sticking to the Megazord theme – you’ll also get a Megazord blueprint shirt! This is a great shirt option to wear to the March premiere of the Power Rangers movie!
LEGO Batman Container – Value $20-25?
The hero item of this box is undoubtedly this plastic LEGO Batman Head food container!
The finish is perfectly painted with a glossy finish – it’s perfectly recognizable as a LEGO figure’s head!
Batman’s cowl unscrews to reveal a compartment that can hold up to 10.5 ounces of your choosing. All materials are BPA-free with double wall insulation to keep food hot or cold. It is not microwave or dishwasher safe, though.
LEGO Dimension Fun Pack – Value $9 on Amazon (values differ for different build kits)
You’ll receive 1 of 5 LEGO Dimensions Fun Packs to be used with your LEGO Dimensions Video Game. You could receive Benny, Wonder Woman, Cyborg, Unikitty, of Bad Cop along with their specific vehicle.
I got Benny from LEGO Movie – which of course means that you get to build his prize Spaceship! There are not build directions in the box, as it’s meant to be done through the video game, but you can find building directions for you Fun Pack on the LEGO site.
Here is a look at a happy Benny with one version of his Spaceship (you can build the ship 3 different ways).
Place these on the gamepad to transport them into your LEGO Dimensions video game – I’ve never played dimensions, but I have tried Harry Potter, Batman, and Indiana Jones LEGO games – they’re family friendly and still fun for adult fans of the franchises.
Even if you don’t own the game – these are fun little builds to display.
TETRIS Flexible Magnet Sheet – Value $5-10?
I couldn’t find this specific magnet set from Paladone, only the previous iteration, so I’m ballparking the value based on the cost of the old set.
The original ‘Build’ franchise is represented in this box with this magnet set. Now you can set up your refrigerator to look like the one moment of joy when you realllllly need the straight piece and it pops up on the screen!
NEW! Secret Order of Keys
Loot Crate has a new little extra in their box, it’s not available yet but make sure to keep an eye out for it! What could it be?!?
Verdict: I love this LEGO Batman container and I think it alone covers, or is close to covering, the cost of the box – that’s a great start and is perfect for a hero item of a box. I actually like all the items this month, including the comic bonus loot – so I couldn’t be more pleased with the BUILD box.
