YAY! It finally arrived today!

Loot Gaming is themed for every delivery. Typically, you can expect to hear about the upcoming theme shortly after the boxes ship around the 27th or each month (this month was delayed in shipping). February’s theme was ‘WILD’ and featured Pitfall Metal Gear Solid, Legend of Zelda, and Warcraft.



You’ll get a large fold out poster. The reverse side features all of the items in your box – and the epic drop prize!


This month’s box inverts into a fun Metal Gear Solid hiding place box!



I love that the cardboard box is still being used in recent Metal Gear Games! It’s the perfect box for this month’s Loot Gaming since it features a Metal Gear Item.



Pin – Value $5?

Each month includes a themed pin. The ‘WILD’ pin is a compass.


Breath of the Wild Shirt – Value $15?

This month’s shirt features Link from Breath of the Wild!


It’s a great design and has that rough sketch look. Hopefully, you were lucky enough to get a Nintendo Switch and are playing this game – I’m jealous!


Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain Plush D-Dog – Value $10-15?

You’ll get a little plush d-dog from the latest Metal Geat game!



Snake can find D-Dog in numerous areas of the map and can be deployed on missions. Buckles had eyes for this toy as I pulled it out of the box – since he always gets the plush toys, he’s really been enjoying running around with his little D-Dog.


Pitfall Canteen – Value $20?

The older generation of gamers will definitely remember Pitfall! I remember playing this game on our computer and it definitely came on a floppy disk!




The canteen is a quality item, too – so it can definitely be put to use! The imagery is printed on a fabric and really stand out with its color.


Warcraft Reversible Beanie – Value $10-15?

The last item in the box features World of Warcraft.


Unfortunately, it’s still winter so this beanie is still usable this year (come on Spring!) – it’s reversible and features the Alliance one one side and the Horde on the other.

Verdict: This month had a unique item with the canteen and featured a few franchises that I enjoy – overall, I like it but I’m wasn’t blown away by any single item. The shirt is sure to be hit with the recent release of Breath of the Wild, though! Hopefully, Loot Crate can get its shipping issues figured out – this and Loot Wear have had a lot of recent delays – and it’s definitely a bit of a damper to get a box much later than you think you will be getting it. Hopefully, they sort out those growing pains.

What did you think of the February ‘WILD’ Loot Gaming?

  1. Love the beanie! But not sure what I will do with a canteen. Never used one in my life 😂

    • Same here, I like the style of it though – I guess I’ll need more adventures!

    • I love the beanie too, although I’m not sure how it fits the theme. I also love the box itself, hah! MGS was one of the first game of its type that I remember playing (I usually played racers, skateboarding etc) and I got such a kick out of hiding in boxes and smoking cigarettes.

      These boxes always have something that throws me down memory lane and I love that!

      • I played so much Tony Hawk Pro Skater 2!
