Each bi-monthly delivery has been themed around one of the characters. So far, we’ve had KayleeJayneZoeWashburne, YoSaffBridgeSerenity shipShepard, and River – this month features her brother – Simon!

You’ll get a book that features interviews, stories, and information about all of the items.

Blue Sun Pin – Value $10?

The pins in this subscription are probably 3-4 times the size of the core crate Loot Crate pins – this one even has some extra weight to it and features Blue Sun, similar to this month’s shirt…

Jayne’s Blue Sun Replica Shirt – Value $15?

This month’s shirt is something a bit different – as soon as you see a sleeveless shirt, you know it’s from Jayne!

It features the Blue Sun logo – ready for you to stroll out into the ‘Verse.

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

Loot Crate adds onto the figure collection with Simon!

Simon is the eighth figure in the set – it features that classic tan vest.

As an ode to the Doc – you’ll get a pair of gloves, too – as a bit of a gag.

Mal in a Spacesuit QBit Figure – Value $10-15?

We’re now into Series 2 of these figures, and it means we’re getting some fun variants now!

This month features Malcolm in a spacesuit from Episode 14! As you can see, mine has a little imperfection right on the forehead which I wasn’t able to fix, unfortunately.

Alliance Cruiser Q-Craft Puzzle Model – Value $15-20?

if you’re into puzzles or 3D builds, you’re going to have a blast with this kit.

This is 113 pieces to construct your own Alliance Cruiser.

You’ll get 8 sheets of thick cardboard pieces and a two-sided direction card.

I’d say about an hour and a half to 2 hours later, you’ll get this:

It’s actually really cool once you’ve finished – most of the pieces were easily put together with a few bits of pain points – overall, worth it!

Londinium Wavecard – Value $5-10?

This is a 5×7 postcard!

I love the graphic design of it. The cardstock is a bit flimsy than your typical postcard, though. But you’re not sending this – you’re framing it!

Firefly Travel Sticker – Value $2?

Finally, continue your Firefly passport with this Londonium sticker!

Verdict: I loved this one! The build-a-ship made of for the weaker shirt this month (I just don’t wear sleeveless shirts) – and, of course, the two figures are fantastic and go right into the collection. This one was late – it typically ships around mid-July, and it was just arriving today – it was one of the latest boxes to have some Loot Crate shipping sturggles – and I sound like a broken record, but, I hope they can solve it because the products have been great.

What did you think of the July 2017 ‘Going Mad’ Firefly Cargo Crate?

  1. No gloves in mine but I guess I should consider myself lucky for those to be the missing item if there was going to be one. I do wish the sleeves and collar of the shirt were finished. I’m a little worried about them fraying in the wash. The figures make me all kinds of happy! Now I just need to clear another shelf for my expanding Firefly collection!

    • No gloves in mine either.

  2. Love the “hands of blue” reference. 🙂

  3. I subbed to this box as my husband and I are die-hard Firefly/Serenity fans…and we have never been disappointed. My husband gets super excited whenever this box shows up. The t-shirts are really well made and the Little Damn Heroes figures are very detailed and well made. We love it!

  4. That building kit looks amazing! I would love to do that! That’s unfortunate about the defect, did you reach out to them to get a replacement?
