Every month has a different theme, and this month’s theme was Speed! Typically, each month’s box unfolds and transforms into something cool – this month was no different!
This month turns into a Speedster with Loot Year tires – very cool design, I’d love to see what some of the other box design ideas for each month were as well – that’d be a fun brainstorming session to be in!
Each month comes with a mini magazine as well.
Here’s a look inside. You’ll find information about each featured franchise along with information about individual items.
Finally, every month includes a themed pin as well – this month’s pin goes along nicely with the inverted box! This month’s pin will also get you a free digital copy of Velocity #1 from Comixlogy.
Ok – on to the loot!
Stark Motor Racing Shirt – Value $15?
This month’s shirt is a call back to Iron Man 2 – and it’s a fun one. I was worried about featuring Iron Man 2 again, but this makes a lot of sense with the theme. This is one of my favorite Loot Crate shirts this year – and Iron Man 2 was one of my least favorite Marvel movies.
Qm Batwing Keychain – Value $10-15?
The next item is from Qm and Batman.
This little metal Batwing is going to be a perfect addition to my keychain.
Here’s a look at the detail on the Batwing itself. Qm typically produces figures, so I’m not sure if this is a first for them, but it may be something they should do more!
Eleanor Collectible Car – Value $10?
This was a surprise franchise for me. The movie is rather old at this point, so I was surprised to see it as a featured franchise – that being said, I did really enjoy Gone in 60 Seconds when it came out, so I was cautiously optimistic.
Eleanor was Nicolas Cage’s White Whale in the movie. The ’67 Mustang is absolutely beautiful in the movie – so it’s fun to get a little replica. This was a fun item for me, but I’m guessing it’s going to be a miss more than a hit based on the age of the movie.
Collectible Hood Ornament – Value $15-20?
Now this is a fun and unique item. This is definitely the first hood ornament I’ve received in a box. You could have received Arrow of The Flash.
Here, you can see The Flash, ready to lead your car down the street.
It’s held on by magnet only. I’m not sure how well this will hold on in the long run – but it’s cool for display if you don’t want to risk it on your hood.
Cylon Raider Titan – Value $15?
The final item of the box is from Titans and Battlestar Galactica!
This little replica vinyl Cylon Raider is awesome!
It’s got a lot of great detail – it’s immediately my favorite Titan figure. I think this is only the second vehicle I’ve received from Titan (the Ecto-1 being the other), but this easily takes the cake.
I think I like this one so much because it doesn’t have the typical exaggerated features from your typical Titan figure.
Verdict: I wasn’t sure about this month’s theme – and I don’t think I was alone with that worry – but I really liked my Loot Crate this month. I’m a sucker for little replica items, and that was everything in the box! And the shirt! The shirt was my favorite shirt of the year from them. I’m not sure what the response will be as a whole to the Gone in 60 Seconds car, but I personally got a kick of it. I was also excited to see a really unique item this month with the hood ornament – while I’m not really sure if it’s practical, it can see be displayed on a shelf
