Good To Know: This month was all exclusives!


The box also comes with a mini-mag and pin. This month’s theme was Time.



It should be mentioned that the mini-mags are so well done! Including this awesome, fold out, OUTATIME license plate!


Dr. Emmett Brown Funko POP Exclusive Variant – Value $25+

WOW! What a first item to pull out of the box! Here is the Loot Crate exclusive variant of Dr. Emmett Brown. This is the best POP I’ve receive in quite some time – and I can’t wait to add it to the collection.


Here’s a close up of Emmett out of the box! It’s so awesome!


Bill & Ted T-Shirt – Value $10?

I loved the Bill and Ted movies as a kid, and the possibility that there might be a third has me ever more excited to sport this exclusive shirt. The only thing better I could think of for a Bill an Ted shirt would be to include the ‘Stations’ from Bogus Journey!


Hover Board Replica – Value ?

I already own the full size replica of the hoverboard – so I was super excited to get this mini version! Everything about this was so well done, from the beautiful packaging, the certificate, and tge hoverboard itself!


Here’s a shot of the inside packaging.


It set above a mirror so it really give it’s the feeling of hovering – great addition!


And here’s a close up of the detail.



Doctor Who Sonic Spork – Value ?

This exclusive item is based on Doctor Who’s sonic screwdriver! If you really love it, you can add other utensils with a whole cutlery set!

Verdict: Best. Box. Ever. I’m head over heels for this month’s Loot Crate! I can see who it might not be as popular for someone who isn’t a fan of Back To The Future or Bill and Ted, but it was perfect for me. Loot Crate packs in so much value for the price, especially now that they’re doing really well done exclusives! If this is the directions of their exclusives, I hope to see more and more of exclusive only boxes!

  1. This was hands down my favorite Loot Crate I’ve ever had and I generally like all Loot Crates. This is also the first one I’ve subscribed to since Fantasy in April. Time travel is my fave so they really had me on this one.

  2. I just got the level up loot crate. It is a Dr. Who cinch belt and Dr. Who necklace. I am not a Dr. Who fan so if anyone wants to trade/buy these from me, let me know!

  3. An amazing Pop for sure. If I weren’t at sub box maximum I would regularly subscribe to Loot. I wish geek boxes would do an actual reveal, not hints like some other boxes do. (For instance one box hinted at one of my favorite fandoms so I was excited and then I received the most horrific figurine…. I can’t even…).

  4. Loved this box so much that I bought an extra – one for me and one for my son. Best LC ever!!

  5. I love it, too! The details on the Doc POP are so charming. Each wrist has a watch, and his electrical charge is bright blue, just like the first Back to the Future movie.

    The Bill and Ted shirt has a smaller fit than the measurements given in Loot Crate’s t-shirt sizing guide. I wanted a loose shirt for my gym workouts, so I ordered a men’s XL, but if I’d ordered my usual size, then it might have been too tight. If anyone buys this shirt (or swaps for it), then I encourage you to size up!

  6. If i signed up now, i wouldn’t be able to get this box right? My sub would start with the November LootCrate? SIGH! Major regret right now. It looks like a fantastic box.

    • Unfortunately your subscription would start with November. They occasionally do “past boxes” sales, so watch for those, though!

  7. I’m normally meh about LC boxes but this one was super awesome. We received it the day before BTF Day too so my husband was able to take Doc with him to work for the day.

  8. That sonic spork continues to amuse me. 😀

    • That’s my absolute favorite part of the box!!

  9. I love the Pop figure, but what makes it be so much more expensive than regular Pops?

    • Nana, this one has an exclusive outfit

  10. My fiancee agrees – this was his absolute favorite LootCrate so far, and he’s been subscribed for a year now. Everything is already on display (or stubbornly being used to eat cereal), and our older Marty Funko Pop fits perfectly on the hover board 🙂

    • What a great idea! I’m going to have to try that with my Marty!
