Loot Crate Subscription Box Review + Coupon – Robotic – September 2017
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!
September’s theme was Robotic!

Each delivery comes with an information booklet. Inside you’ll find stories and interviews along with the month’s item details.
The Loot Crate box typically turns into something fun and theme related. This month’s box turns into a cereal box – Cog Crispies – I thought it was a fun design!
Robotic Pin – Value $5?
Each month starts off with your themed pin. This month’s pin is a little Loot Bot!
This month’s bonus loot is a 3-month digital subscription to Servo magazine:
It had a special landing page where you’ll enter your unique code with your address details – no other payment information, so I don’t think I’m at risk of the subscription recurring.
Blade Runner 2049 Shirt – Value $15?
This month’s shirt features the upcoming sequel, Blade Runner: 2049.
Get ready for opening night with a Wallace Corp shirt – it also glows in the dark (maybe don’t wear it in the theater).
Aliens “Queen Takes Bishop” Mini Figure – Value $15?
Loot Crate’s new figure line continues with this Alien themed mini figure.
The Queen is taking out Bishop, the android, as seen in the original film.
This figure is just over 3 inches tall – I was surprised by how tiny it looked after seeing the spoilers! While the detail is pretty good, I think this might be my least favorite Loot Crate in-house figure yet.
R2-D2 IncrediBuild – Value $20-22 on Amazon
You’ll get to build a robot out of wood this month with this IncrediBuilds Star Wars set!
It comes with full instructions and a little background info book on the droid.
The book is a fun little read about R2-D2 and it’s different adventures!
It arrives as a flat piece of wood – perforated so you can easily pop the pieces out.
The instructions were simple to follow, I think this took me about 20-30 minutes to finish (unpainted).
Here’s R2 in its droid glory! It’s about 4.5 inches tall when complete. The wood is easily painted, so you can really do it up and finish it with a new paint job!
Star Trek: TNG Mirror Broken Comic – Value $4-5?
This comic is 100% exclusive, and only available via Loot Crate at the moment – that’s pretty cool in itself.
The story follows the origin of Data. Even if you’re not into comics, I recommend this one, IDW has some great lines that extend a bunch of known universes – you might just get the IDW comic itch!
Verdict: While I definitely got my value out of this box with the shirt, figure, and IncrediBuild, it was probably one of my least favorite Loot Crates in quite a bit. For me, the new figures are typically the hero item, but it was so surprisingly small that it kind of lost its luster for me – does anyone else feel the same?
To Wrap Up:
Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No – you can find the current month available at the top of their homepage. They are currently taking October subscriptions – every month’s cutoff date to order is the 19th of the month at midnight EST.
