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.
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.
There are 3 items from Fullmetal Alchemist this month. The first is this 8″ plush of Alphonse Elric.
This plush has a little bit of weight, along with flat feet, that allows it to easily stand!
Fullmetal Alchemist Human Transmutation Circle Coasters – Value $14
How cool is this? This is the very first exclusive item from Lootaku!
You’ll get two ceramic coasters. They feel really high-quality with thicker ceramic and a cork bottom – awesome first exclusive!
You’ll also get a replica pocket watch from Alphonse’s brother – Edward Elric, the Fullmetal Alchemist.
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 Sword Replica with Stand Hyourinmaru – Value $12
This is a 12″ replica of the Zanpakuto held by Toshiro Hitsugaya.
It comes with its own stand that can display the sheath and sword!
I love all the little details in this display piece!
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.
