The box also comes with a mini-mag. This month’s theme was Invasion
Here’s a look at the content in the magazine.
X-Files Shirt – Value $10?
This month’s exclusive shirt features The X-Files. This design was a contest in collaboration with Threadless – which is a very cool idea that I hope they keep up, I think we’ll get many more unique designs when anyone can contribute their designs! This also matches this month’s Loot Pets shirt!
UPDATE: Here is the twinsies photo for this month:
Facehugger Plush – Value $10-15?
This is an exclusive plush from Kidrobot. This will probably be stolen by Buckles, it really is inevitable.
The facehugger is smiling on the backside.
They included a yellow rubber band in the box and it was random and confusing, until I read the booklet more, and found out that this is what its use is:
X-Files LED Flashlight – Value $10?
This is an exclusively branded X-Files mini flashlight. While it’s not really exciting, I can always use another flashlight around the house.
Space Invaders Vinyl Figure – Value $10-15?
This is an exclusive item, and I couldn’t find a comparable online. I really like this one! I already have it on a shelf.
It’s a bit translucent and a decent size. Very cool!
The Fifth Element Prop Replica Multi Pass – Value $10-15?
This is another exclusive this month. It’s a prop replica of The Fifth Element’s Multi Pass
They also include a plastic ID sleeve if you want to use it to carry your ID.
As always, you get your monthly pin.
Here’s a close up of the pin – I like the design!
Mini-Prints – Value $10?
This month also came with two mini prints.
Very cool designs on these prints. I’ve never had a real use for mini prints – but I do appreciate the artwork!
Verdict: While it wasn’t my favorite month of Loot Crate, I did have more fun than I expecting while unboxing it. I’m not a huge fan of the theme, so I knew this one might be a let down for me, but, overall, I thought it was good! I’m a big fan of the shirt, Space Invaders vinyl, and the plush (my dog is a fan now too).
