Each month is themed. This month’s theme was ‘DEATH’ and featured Dark Souls, Fullmetal Alchemist, and Bleach.

It will include a large card with details about the items in the box.

Banpresto DFX – Dark Souls Sculpt Correction Vol. 1: Faraam Knight – Value $50

The card lists the value at $50, I found it at my go-to toy store for $35 – but there are a couple things to consider for value with this item: this is an early release of this statue releases in July 2017, and this is an Aisa exclusive limited release – so those things definitely have value – so I don’t think $50 is overvaluing it on the card.

This early release is fully painted and ready for display. It’s full of details, as you’d expect from Banpresto.

Lootaku has included a lot of Banpresto items in their box – and I have really loved each one. I’m a bit of a statue hoarder – so even when I’m getting a franchise I might not follow, I’ll love the statue if it’s great artwork with and awesome sculpt.

This plush has a little bit of weight, along with flat feet, that allows it to easily stand!

It’s a fully working pocket watch, with clip for your pocket. It’s got a bunch of little details, too, including the inscription “Don’t Forget 3.Oct.11” which marks the date that Edward and Alphonse began their journey.

Bleach Pin Gotei 13, 13th Division – Value $3

The last item from the box is also from Bleach – it’s a Gotei 13 pin.

Verdict: You don’t have to look further than the Dark Souls statue to realize why I suggested Lootaku as “one to watch” for geek boxes in 2017! This box has been including awesome statues – big and small – since I’ve been receiving boxes, as a statue collector myself, this is the only subscription that I can count on to add a statue to my collection almost every delivery. With the reduction in price – I’m hoping it will get more US subscribers. It’s kind of my perfect box – even if I’m not always a fan of the franchises.

What did you think of the February Lootaku?

  1. Oh my goodness!!! I wish I didn’t miss out on this subscription this month!! Full Metal Alchemist is my favorite anime, and I haven’t come across many FML items in geek boxes, even though it’s one of the most popular anime series in the states. This box is so awesome! I will definitely be subscribing to this sub in the near future. Thank you so much for reviewing this!

  2. Ooo this box looks nice, especially the Dark Souls Figure ! I signed up for the March box and I am so excited waiting for it!

  3. I wish I got this box. That Dark Souls figure looks awesome and would’ve been perfect for a friend’s upcoming birthday. Maybe next time.

    • Hi Jackie! We still have a couple of these boxes left. Normally they’ll be back on our shop the following month, but if it’s for a birthday we can make an exception. If you’d like to purchase the box, create an account on our website then send us an email with your account email with the request to buy this box and we’ll send you an invoice.
