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.

Every month, you’ll get a Loot Pin. It will be theme and grant you access to some digital loot!

Lootcrate-February-2017-0026

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!

Lootcrate-February-2017-0028

The finish is perfectly painted with a glossy finish – it’s perfectly recognizable as a LEGO figure’s head!

Lootcrate-February-2017-0029

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.

Lootcrate-February-2017-0020

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.

  1. I have a nephew that loves batman, but I can’t decide if he’s going to get the batman container, or if it will watch over my desk at work. My children and I are enjoying rearranging the tetris magnets on the fridge, and they voted to make the legos kit a gift. The shirt/pin is nice, but I wish I’d opted for my hubby’s size this month, since it’s more him than me. Oh well!

  2. I’m not renewing my subscription. This was my last box and they just started feeling really cheap lately. I don’t know that I’ve liked any of the shirts which was one of the intial draws for me. I’m going to stick with my Collector Corps and Smugglers Bounty.

  3. This box is cooler than I expected! I’m even excited by the magnets purely because I can use them for my DIY projects. I can cut a photo into those shapes and paste it onto the different tetris squares. Then put the pieces back to show the original picture. I love the Lego movie so much that I’d be happy with just about any of the characters. And that Batman container looks awesome!

  4. I had recently deactivated my loot crate account to just have the wizarding crate that they offer. I’m glad you posted this review of this month before it shipped out. HUGE LEGO FAN. The best part is I don’t have any of the 5 dimension toy sets that they are offering in this crate. Would love to get Unikitty or benny! Reactiveted my account to get this crate! Thank you sooo much!!!

    • You’re welcome! Thanks for reading!

  5. I’m a bit disappointed in the Lego Dimension. The options listed are older and can now be found at several 99 cent stores and Five Below. We already own 3 of the 5 listed so crossing our fingers we get one we don’t have yet. The rest of the box looks good though and my son will be happy with it.

  6. Has anyone had luck with customer their service? I have emailed them twice and haven’t gotten a reply. So frustrating!

    • I’ve used their online chat several times and have always gotten a quick response. Not sure when you emailed but I’m pretty sure they are closed on weekends, so maybe wait until tomorrow to expect a reply?

      • Thanks for the online chat tip. I will give that a try.
        I emailed most recently a few weeks ago so they have had ample time to reply.

    • Yes, I’ve also had the best luck with online chat service.

  7. Already subscribed for 3-month, can’t wait to get it! This month is so good! My husband will love the shirt and the container!

    • I subscribed too. It also appears the price went up. I’m not sure if I subscribed when it was 13.95, but I got 3 months for $40 which it seems a good deal to me.

      • that was my total with shipping costs. 😉

        • That’s my price paid too! Not bad~

  8. IN LOVE!!! I’m buying this box before it’s sold out *_*

    • I know. I especially love the batman container. I’m a batman geek 100% 😛
