Every month has a different theme, and December’s theme was Revolution. It featured 3 franchises – Mr. Robot, Assassin’s Creed, Firefly – and something special from Sideshow Collectibles!
This month’s box folds up into a building for Aguilar to perch on!
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 Assassin’s Creed insignia.
In the magazine, you’ll find details on how to redeem this content. This month’s digital loot is a digital excerpt from the new Assassin’s Creed Heresy novel.
Mr. Robot fsociety Shirt – Value $15?
This month’s shirt features Mr. Robot. fsociety is the name of Mr. Robot’s hacker group! We really have a lot of TV to catch up on, and this is one of the shows I need to do a lot of catching up on. I think we watched about 4 episodes of season 1 – we liked it a lot, but never found the time to keep going!
Assassin’s Creed Aguilar POP – Value $15-20?
This POP has yet to show up on POP Price Guide, so I’m ballparking the value based on past exclusive POPs.
Aguilar is Michael Fassbender’s character in the upcoming Assassin’s Creed movie. This exclusive variant features the perched post that all Assassin’s Creed gamers will know – get ready to jump into the closest bail of hay!
Collectors beware – my POP’s box arrived pretty smashed which will greatly affect the value.
Figure Fantasy Hardcover Book – Value $20-30?
This item couldn’t be more perfect for me. This book is entirely exclusive to Loot Crate and shows off statues from one of my favorite manufacturers, Sideshow Collectibles!
These are all photographed by Daniel Picard and show off some of the best figure photography I’ve seen!
I love how it’s all set up and shows off how much detail goes into the figures themselves to make them look extremely detailed, and now lifelike and interacting with everyday objects!
Firefly Independents Patch – Value $10?
The final item in the crate is from Firefly.
It’s a replica made by Firefly graphic designer Dylan Hay-Chapman.
Verdict: I thought this month was packed with value in only a few items – and I’m all for quality over quantity. Exclusive POPs are typically worth around the cost of one month of Loot Crate from my experience – so that alone is worth the cost. The book is what stands out to me as the highlight of the box – an exclusive hardcover book featuring the toys that all of us collectors want/own! It felt like a DX item in the core crate, which I was very excited about.
So far, all of the December crates have been great – so I’m really looking forward to what 2017 brings.
