Firefly Cargo Crate - June 2017 - No Power in the 'Verse - Fruit Oat Bar Lapel Pin

Fruity Oats Bar Pin – Value $10?

The pins in this subscription are probably 3-4 times the size of the core crate Loot Crate pins – and they have been getting better and better – this one is sure to be a fan favorite!

Ready to have the song stuck in your head? This is from the Serenity movie!

Firefly Cargo Crate - June 2017 - No Power in the 'Verse - Glow in the dark Octopus shirt

Octopus Glow in the Dark Shirt – Value $15-20?

I gave a little bump in value here for the GITD variation! Sticking with the Fruity Oat Bars and Serenity theme – this shirt comes from the commercial above – it’s based on the subliminal message in the commercial.

Firefly Cargo Crate - June 2017 - No Power in the 'Verse - Little Damn Heroes - River with box

Little Damn Heroes – River Tam Figure – Value $20-25

Ready to add to your Little Damn Heroes collection?? This month includes River!

Loot Crate’s figure line in their Halo and Firefly boxes have really been one of the highlights for me across all of the lines – this figure is no different. I’m also excited about the idea of another River Tam figure from the end of Serenity!

Firefly Cargo Crate - June 2017 - No Power in the 'Verse - QBits - Kaylee

Wedding Cake Dress Kaylee QBit Figure – Value $10-15?

The QBit figure is back this month (I was a bit worried about not seeing it in the spoiler)!

Again – this little figure line is fun and more quirky than Little Damn Heroes – there’s a bit of an 8-bit character feel to these little figures.

Typically, you’d receive one of two figures – but this month, it looks like everyone received the same figure.

Firefly Cargo Crate - June 2017 - No Power in the 'Verse - River's inflated axe

River’s Inflatable Axe – Value $5-10?

The next item is more of a funny little cosplay item than a collectible – it’s the Reaver Axe from River’s most iconic moment in Serenity!

Yep – it’s got all the flash of the post-battle scenes.

Atlas of the ‘Verse Flash Card – Miranda – Value $1?

They’ve started to send out Planetary Flash Cards each month – this month features the planet Miranda.

These do have fun little bits of information for those looking to get deeper into the ‘Verse.

Firefly Travel Sticker – Value $2?

Finally, continue your Firefly passport with this Miranda sticker!

Verdict: For me, this month turned out to be a big win – the QBit, Little Damn Hero, Pin, and shirt are all just perfect! While the Reaver axe was kind of ‘meh’ – I think it’s really intended to be just that fun item in the box after an awesome first 4 items, so I’m ok with that – but I’m curious about what you thought!

What did you think of the May 2017 ‘No Power in the ‘Verse’ Firefly Cargo Crate?

  1. So disappointing!!!! Price went up and quality went down. Until this last crate, I’ve always been very happy (been a subscriber since the first Firefly crate) but this last one really sucked. Definitely not worth the money. I’ll give them one more crate and it it’s like this one, I’ll unsubscribe….. So sad.

    • Agree 100%

      I thought a couple of the previous crates were borderline, but this one was just laughable.

      Makes me wonder how long they are going to try and stretch it out.

      Right now, it puts lootcrate firmly at the top of my “Things I’m Wasting Money On” list, and it’s a long list 🙂

  2. I’m not sure exactly what will be in the next box but I know what they SHOULD include and that’s an apology for the inflatable axe.

    • Agree! The worst item in any of the Firefly crates…

  3. Thats super cool that the shirt glows in the dark! Also, thanks for introducing me to that song… Lol!

  4. So bummed that I missed out on this. By the time I got off the fence it was sold out. Awesome box though- I do like the inflatable ax. Something I can picture whopping my boyfriend with to wake him up in the morning. bahaha.

    • Excellent usage idea haha
