Loot Crate is a monthly subscription box for geeks and gamers. Each month they include themed collectibles and shirts – lately, they’ve moved towards a mostly exclusive model – so you can’t get most of these items anywhere else!

Loot Crate kindly sent us this box to review. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).

Every month has a different theme, and November’s theme was Magical. This played well into the movies being released November, more specifically – Doctor Strange and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.


This month’s box folds into a potion cabinet.


It even had the months theme as a placard!


Each month comes with a mini magazine that describes and details all of the items in your crate.



Each month always comes with a Loot Pin that unlocks digital bonus loot. This month’s pin features The Elder Scrolls.


In the magazine, you’ll find details on how to redeem this content. This month’s digital loot is bonus content for The Elder Scrolls Online – which you must already own to be able to redeem this!


Fantastic Beasts Obliviator Shirt – Value $15?

I’m loving the design of this month’s Fantastic Beasts shirt! Show off your wizarding pride and help recruit into the Magical Congress!


Doctor Strange QFig – Value $15-20?

This item was my favorite of the month (the vinyl figure pretty much always is)!


Doctor Strange shows up in QFig form. I’m liking the pose of him casting a spell.



Overall, I think this is a great figure design – and one of my favorite exclusive QFigs from Loot Crate. Next month includes an exclusive Funko POP, so I wonder how many more QFigs we’ll be seeing next year.


Game of Thrones Journal – Value $10+?

The next item just makes me miss Game Of Thrones ever more – it’s so far away!

This faux-leather journal features Melisandre – The Red Woman – and is doubled sided, revealing her true form!


I love that! Very nicely done.


On the inner page, there’s a bio of Melisandre.


Beyond that, it’s a standard notebook – but does allow you to note the date, time of day, and weather in the top margin.


Big Trouble in Little China/Escape From New York #1 – Value $3.99 + exclusive variant cover

The last item in the box was a comic featuring two sides of Kurt Russell – Escape From New York and Big Trouble in Little China.


This comic event series follows Jack and Snake as they become frenemies! Not something  I thought I’d ever see.

From Amazon:

It’s the mother of all crossovers as Jack Burton and Snake Plissken meet for the first time ever anywhere! Done with director John Carpenter’s complete blessing, witness this melee of the mullets as two cult-classic characters made famous by actor Kurt Russell crossover in an improbable adventure. As lightning cascades around Jack and his good ol’ Pork-Chop Express, he finds himself transported and driving through the horrors of what seems to be the dystopian future of…Escape from New York?! Snake Plissken catches wind of Jack and goes on the hunt to find who is trying to steal his identity. Prepare for the road trip of a lifetime, with Jack and Snake rumblin’ down the streets of a dystopian future to find what craziness caused Jack to jump through worlds.

Verdict: This month is all about the QFig figure – If you’re a fan of the QFig, then the value is probably there for you – if not, the other items are smaller in value, so it may have been harder to justify the cost. Personally, I’m loving the shirt, QFig, and GoT notebook – so it was a win for me.

  1. If there is anyone out there not playing The Elder Scrolls Online and dont know what to do with the code I would be very happy to receive it, since I bought the wrong version of the game yesterday and would love to play as an Imperial

    Cheers Bapt

  2. Only problem is that the Loot Crate pin code for the Imperial DLC doesn’t work if you play TESO via STEAM.

    TESO support says to send them a support request with screenshots of the pin code and error codes but when you do they just send you back a template email asking for those exact same things. It’s been almost a week and I haven’t had any further replies.

  3. If i order loot crate nov 30 i live in orillia ont canada. Would it be here intime for christmas . Cuz it says something like first renuel date dec 25th.

  4. Do you know if all of the shirts this month men’s/unisex sizing?

    • This was my first box, but I’m pretty sure it’s unisex. I received the Fantastic Beasts shirt in a small, and I’m subscribed for a women’s medium. The fit looks unisex (not babydoll), and a small fits me great! (I’m petite, so it’s just a tad long, but still looks good.) Hope that helps!
