The October 2017 Loot Crate DX included items from Stranger Things, Ghostbusters/Karate Kid, Thor, and Supernatural.

It arrives with a fold out card that details all of the items in your crate.

Mythical Pin – Value $5-10?

Each month includes a themed pin with the delivery. They’re about twice the size of the pins delivered with core crate. This month’s pin goes with the core crate’s pin design and is a classic monster – a werewolf!

Let’s start off with my favorite item this month…

Ghostbusters “Karate Puft” Figure – Value $20?

If you read my reviews you might know that I grew up in the 80’s/early 90’s and that I love me some vinyl figures and statues – this brought together a bunch of those worlds!

It arrives in two pieces – the cityscape base and Stay Puft.

Are you getting all of the retro feels from this…

I feel for those buildings at the end of that crane kick.

Stay Puft stands 7 inches tall when attached to the base.

I’m surprised Stay Puft is agile enough to have such good crane kick form! But seriously, overall, this looks and feels like a better figure from the lines made by Loot Crate. The construction does leave some gaps around the neck, but the paint job – including the ‘Stay Puft’ lettering is really well done.

While I’m not sure how or why they thought of merging The Karate Kid and Stay Puft – I’m not mad that they did.

Barb Pool Towel – Value $15-20?

Fans of Stranger Things know the Barb did not have a good time at the pool – but you can sport her anytime you’re lounging by one.

The towel is 56×28 inches and has a Turkish towel feel to it – and it definitely captures that 80’s vibe from the show.

Thor Dopp Kit – Value $15?

While I get a ton of dopp kits in subscription boxes, I tend to find storage use for them – even if it’s not for grooming products. So, I was happy to see Mjolnir as a dopp kit!

I love the little bits of detail on this.

You’ll even get a Thor comic page lining.

It’s the size of a typical dopp kit – but doesn’t have any inner pockets or little compartments.

Supernatural Bestiary Book – Value $25? (Non-exclusive hardback edition $20 on Amazon)

The last item in the box comes from Supernatural.

Read up on the beasts within the Supernatural universe. This is an exclusive cover – but is otherwise the same as the readily available edition.

Verdict: I loved this month’s vinyl figure – but didn’t love or hate the rest of the items – I’m kind of in the middle on the October box. Last month, I liked it a bit more than I expected, and this month was the opposite of that. More importantly, I see that some lines are delayed again this month – Loot Crate really needs to figure that stuff out, it really damages the entire experience!

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 November subscriptions – every month’s cutoff date to order is the 19th of the month at midnight EST.

  1. No T-shirt? The towel instead? My son gets this box and has been for the past 18 months. He’s ready to try a new box. He doesn’t have much use for most of the items and the novelty is wearing off.
