The box also comes with a mini-mag and pin. This month’s theme follows up last month’s Heroes 2, with Villains 2!
Los Pollos Hermanos Apron – Value $29.99
I pulled the value from the official Breaking Bad store. I LOVE this apron. Every Breaking Bad fans will immediately recognize this apron from the ultimate Breaking Bad villain. For me, this is so much better than another t-shirt – what a great idea for a wearable! I’ve been hoping for a change up in geek box wearables lately, so this fits the bill. I better fire up the grill before summer ends.
And here’s a look from the Loot Crate magazine.
Venom 3D Mug – Value $14.99 on Amazon
It’s a toss-up between this mug and the apron for favorite item this month – but since I’ll use this much more, it probably gets the edge. Both Venom and Carnage were possibilities this month, and while I’m glad I got Venom, I’ll probably try to swap for Carnage!
The Joker Wooden Figure – Value 12.99?
Here is the Villains 2 box exclusive. I was unsure if I’d like this item when I first saw spoilers – but I already have this on my desk. It’s a solid, bulky, wooden figure with two head choices. One has text for his mouth that says “heehee” and the other says “haha”. I may have to get the Batman wooden figure to balance out the power struggle on my desk.
Here’s a look at how the heads pop off.
And here’s a look at both available heads!
Captain America Hydra Pin – Value $23 on Amazon
Hail Hydra! Hail Hydra! I really like this prop replica from Captain America: The First Avenger. Cap is one of my favorite superheroes – so it’s only fitting to now have the pin of his greatest nemesis organization!
Loot Crate Villains 2 Pin
And here is this month’s pin. Love the Venom mouth!
Verdict: Another great Loot Crate box this month! While there are fewer items this month, they are higher value items – which I enjoy much more now that I have them in hand. I love the mug and apron, and all the items add up to over 3x value of the price paid – you can’t beat that! I also think that the curation was great here – all villains included are the ultimate villain for the opposition hero (or anti-hero in Walter White’s case!).
What did you think of this month’s Loot Crate? Did you like getting less, but higher value items?
