Marvel Gear + Goods is new to the line of Loot Crate themed boxes.  This is a ‘Partner Crate’ from Loot Crate, so you’ll be only receiving official Marvel collectibles, apparel, home goods and more. It’s also bi-monthly – so expect it at your doorstep every other month.

Mine came very late this time – this is the January crate, but I only received it yesterday.

Each delivery will be themed. The January boxed was themed as ‘Super Science’, but they also hinted that the items themselves would be for your kitchen.

The box itself folds into a tablet stand to use in the kitchen.

While it was a fun idea, it didn’t work too well for us.

The information cards for this subscription are higher quality and double as posters. The front shows off blueprints of Tony Stark’s Iron Man suit.

On the reverse side, you’ll find all of your items.

The Super Science pin is just phenomenal. This is Ultron and might be one of my favorite pins from a box to-date.

Black Panther Apron – Value $15-20?

First up, Black Panther – in apron form!

Loot-Crate-Marvel-Gear-and-Goods-January-2017-0022

The material itself feels durable – which is important for an apron.

It’s a good length, too. It comes down to my knee. Buckles is always interested in any item that could yield f

M.O.D.O.K. Ice Mold – Value $10?

The next exclusive item is an ice mold in the form of M.O.D.O.K.

You’ll pour the water in his head and freeze it while it’s laying on its back. We had had to tighten the mold with a rubber band to ensure that it didn’t leak – so that’s something to look out for.

It made a good size ice cube for a glass of whiskey. M.O.D.O.K. has always been creepy to me since I can remember, so seeing his face/body quickly melt away was alright with me.

Super Science Plate Set – Value $20-25?

One of the big items this month was a 4-piece plate set featuring Spidey, Hulk, Iron Man and Ant-Man.

There is a misprint on the information sheet to note: These are dishwasher safe, but they are NOT microwave safe!

The 8×8 inch plates are not that high quality, so that’s a bit of a bummer because I really like the designs.

Hank Pym Measuring Glass – Value $15?

The last item in the box is a measuring cup that features the most appropriate Marvel character – Ant-Man.

Loot-Crate-Marvel-Gear-and-Goods-January-2017-0016

It measures up to 2 cups.

I love that it shows off the shrinking/growing Ant-Man.

Verdict: I thought these were good kitchen-themed items, as advertised. My biggest complaint is that the plates were just a bit thin and flimsy for me to consider them quality or everyday-usable – and that’s a bummer. Besides that, I liked the designs/sculpts for every item and I’m excited to see a less familiar character, M.O.D.O.K., included. As a whole, I still like the contents more than the first delivery – so I think they’re on the right track.

What did you think of the January “Super Science” Marvel Gear + Goods box?

  1. I have Star Wars plates that look pretty identical to those and I can verify they are NOT microwave NOR dishwasher safe.

    • Just for clarity, in case people are wondering, These plates are marked as dishwasher safe (top rack only) but not microwave safe.
