This post may contain referral/affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

Loot-Crate-March-2017-0001

Loot Crate is a monthly subscription box for geeks and gamers. Each month they include themed collectibles and shirts – they’ve moved towards a mostly exclusive model – so you can’t get most of these items/variants anywhere else!

Loot Crate kindly sent us this box to review. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).

Primal Pin – Value $5?

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

This month’s pin gets you issues #1 and #2 of Savage on Comixology!

Overwatch Primal Rage Shirt – Value $15?

This month’s tee features Winston from Primal Rage! They used Overwatch’s Winston graffiti tag from in the game! This is a great idea and an idea that would be perfect for Loot Gaming since they talked about pulling in-game elements into items.

Logan Metals Die-Cast Figure – Value $15-20?

How appropriate to display Wolverine as a 100% die-cast metal figure!

Loot-Crate-March-2017-0034

There are 3 variants of this figure – I received the basic Logan figure – but you could have received Old Man Logan or Raw Adamantium Logan. I was hoping for the Raw Adamantium variant since it reminds me of how Logan met his demise in the comics – but, it looks like these will be available in the vault sooner or later.

The back features a collection of my ideal lineup! I might have to get that Colossus figure…

Predator Bottle Opener – Value $10?

The Predator item is a 3-inch tall bottle opener. This comes in two variants – the ‘Jungle Hunter’ from the original Predator and Gort from Predator 2.

It’s got a hollow back – I was hoping it was magnetized which it’s not, but you can always glue a magnet to the back without changing the look too much.

Jurassic World Sign – Value $10?

The final item in the box is from Jurassic World.

Loot-Crate-March-2017-0022

This is a metal sign crafted from designs in Jurassic World. I can’t help but love this franchise. I was very young when the first one came out, and I remember first seeing the T-Rex on the screen – it’s a cinema moment I’ll never forget!

It even came with some zip ties for hanging.

This month also continues the ‘Secret Order of Keys’ challenge. Looters who answered the questions correctly last month received a bonus ‘Secret Order of Keys’ pin this month – so I’m curious what the next prize will be.

Verdict: At $22, I still think Loot Crate is hard to beat. I think they’re doing a good job at getting fun and exclusive items, but they really need to fix their shipping inconsistencies – it’s ruining the experience for a lot of new subscribers. I’m not loving the new existence of variants within the box with the option to buy the others in the vault – I get that it’s a business move, but it makes my items feel less special – I’m curious if this will be a common occurrence.

What did you think of the March ‘PRIMAL’ Loot Crate?

  1. This was my first Loot Crate, which I got just for the Overwatch item. I was slightly disappointed the OW item was a shirt instead of an exclusive POP, but it’s a pretty decent shirt. I wish the sleeves were longer, but it at least seems good quality. I got the same Logan, which I’m happy about, but the seams around the sides is a little disappointing and takes away a bit from the quality. But I love the heft to it. The JW sign is awesome, but I too was disappointed the Predator bottle opener wasn’t a magnet. I’m currently hanging it from another magnet on my fridge.

    I was going to cancel after this since all I cared about was Overwatch, but the overall quality of the box and next month’s franchises (of which I’m a fan of them all), has kept me for now!

  2. I love the crate, but the Pin doesn’t give you the Savage comics. The pin unlocks an IOS game. So, I have no idea how to redeem the comics, unless I’m missing something.

  3. This box was great! Especially since I got it on a Groupon pretty cheap. But I don’t understand the shirt. Is it Overwatch or is it Primal Rage (the old game)? Or maybe both? Yeah, just trying to figure it out before I wear it and people ask 🙂

    • It’s an in-game graffiti tag from Overwatch. But I’m with you, the old Primal Rage was what I jumped to! I wish!

  4. This one was a total home run for us! It’s funny to me how the first thing my husband said was how he was going to add a magnet to the back of the Predator bottle opener! Great minds! We got the same Logan figure and he loves it. I have a feeling we’ll be hitting up the Vault for the others once available.

  5. I got the old man luke. I liked the t-shirt and it was so soft and actually seemed to run to size and was a bit loose for once.

  6. I still haven’t got my box 😐 I’m getting another from the deal but supposedly my other one shipped a week ago but tracking says they haven’t even received it. Ah well I’ll blaim it on the weather lol

  7. Loved this box! I got the same Logan, but he was who I was hoping for so I’m happy. I also got the same bottle opener, such a good idea to glue a magnet to the back. I feel like the quality has been really great lately, I was subscribed last year for a bit and stopped because I wasn’t sure the items were as good as I wanted, but they have definitely improved that!

  8. Love everything in the box~
