This month went for quality over quantity. There was a bigger focus on movie franchises for the DX box this month – featuring Back to the Future, Mad Max, and Transformers.
Each month comes with an exclusive pin, as well. The Speed themed pin is a hot rod – and it kind of reminds me of Fury Road a bit, too.
Paper Airplane Baseball Tee – Value $15-20?
This month’s shirt was an odd choice. It was a stretch in following the theme speed and it didn’t capture a franchise. It’s simply about flying a paper plane when you were little. An odd choice, in my opinion.
It’s a baseball tee, so the arm length comes down about 3/4 off the length of your arm.
Transformers Messenger Bag – Value $40+?
This messenger bag is awesome. It feels good on my shoulder, and also feels like it’s a high-quality bag that will last.
It has and under-arm strap here which is good for biking – or just in general if you bend over.
The inner-lining is full-on Transformers! The pattern and patch are also exclusive to Loot Crate. It easily fit my 15″ Macbook Pro with tons of room to spare – I could have used this recently!
Back to the Future 1:24 Scale DeLorean Replica – Value $22 on Amazon
I actually own all 3 of these 1:24 scale replica DeLoreans – I highly recommend them!
This is the model from the first installment of Back to the Future. It comes with a removable lightning rod, also – but who wants to display this without it! It’s iconic!
The Art of Mad Max Fury Road – Value $20?
I based my value guess on the value of the hardcover on Amazon. This is the final item in the box, and it’s a gem. Anyone who loved Fury Road will love browsing through this book.
You’ll find a ton of good info about shooting the movie, and even more beautiful photography.
In case you haven’t seen this – I had to mention this video of Fury Road without all the special effects, it’s still incredible! What an amazing job done by George Miller.
Verdict: While I didn’t like the shirt (graphic or style), I really liked the other items. The messenger bag really stands out as the highlight. I’m not even a big Transformers fan, but I’ll use this the next time I need a bag – it’s got tons of storage, and I may be valuing it low based on some other designs I’m seeing out there. If you love the 1:24 scale DeLorean, I highly recommend picking up the 3-pack from all 3 movies – they’re perfect for display. This was a strong box for me – DX needs to have a high-value hero item every month, and I think this has just that.
