This month’s box unfolded into a temple – this is my favorite box transformation yet!

It’s also a great setting for Lara!

The box always is accompanied by a booklet and themed pin. In the booklet, you can get details about each item in your Loot Gaming box.

Here is a better look at the ‘Stranded’ pin. A survival knife planted on a deserted island – can’t get much more ‘Stranded’ than that.

Far Cry Primal Shirt – Value $15?

This month’s shirt features Far Cry: Primal. Pretty much every single Far Cry game has been great. I haven’t had a chance to play Primal, but I can pretty much guarantee that it’s an awesome and fun game. Any Far Cry fans out there want to chime in?

Lara Croft Vinyl Figure – Value $10-15?

This is a little vinyl version of Lara Croft – she’s the size of a Funko Mystery Mini. Major complaint – the figure can’t stand! Her head has too much weight and is tilted forward – so the figure just falls over all the time. I would have liked to see them include some type of base with this specific figure.

Also – How has it been 20 years already!? Does anyone remember the first time you faced the T-Rex in the first Tomb Raider?



I remember this game as being groundbreaking for this genre – at least for myself. Also, I thought the graphics “looked real”. It was a simpler time.

I love the current gen reboot of Tomb Raider. A lot. It’s one of the best  adventure game lines out today – I highly recommend giving it a try if you haven’t.

Assassin’s Creed Black Flag Flask – Value $10-15?

Next up is a flask from Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag. This is the only Assassin’s Creed that I got fully engrossed in – even though I know there are some awesome Assassin’ Creed titles aside from it.

Here’s a better look at the embroidered logo in the faux-leather. It’s a cool item – and it’s appropriate to the game itself.

Speaking of the first time seeing the T-Rex in the original Tomb Raider – I still remember battling the White Whale in Black Flag – that was a great moment when you finally won that battle.

Dead Island Banoi Resort Towel – Value $25-30?

This falls into the “hardest item to photograph” category for me. It’s a large (30×60) 100% cotton towel. It’s nicely done, too. It’s a resort towel from Banoi Royal Palms Resort – the setting for the game Dead Island. Naturally, the island is overrun by zombies – so what you’re left with is the aftermath towel.

Verdict: Loot Gaming seems to be going down the ‘quality over quantity’ route – which I appreciate. There’s no filler in the box – and I thought these were unique items. While the titles weren’t ones that I often play – except Tomb Raider – I still like the items a lot! I am disappointed that my favorite item, the vinyl figure, can’t really be displayed since it just falls all the time – I’ll be on the look out for solutions. Overall, this is a good box – it might even be a great box had I loved each title.

What did you think of the July Loot Gaming?

  1. Is it possible you missed a stand that was in the box for Lara? I have the whole set of Firefly Funko Pop! figures, and the girls (Zoey and Kaylee) are so top-heavy they’d certainly fall over without the stands, and the stands are transparent plastic that are nearly impossible to notice in the package if you didn’t know they were there.

    • Unfortunately no – there was no stand for that figure. You’re totally right – those stands are tough to see in the POP packaging sometimes!

  2. I must have that towel but I don’t want the whole box!!!!!!!! Maybe ebay…
