The May Loot Crate DX included mostly Superhero items fro the second month in a row (not complaining!) – it featured Star-Lord, Wonder Woman, Destiny, and an exclusive Marvel book!
Destiny Ghost Pin – Value $5-10?
This month’s pin features your very own Destiny Ghost to carry around on your lapel.
Destiny Shirt – Value $15?
This month included only one wearable item – it’s this exclusive Destiny Shirt.
It’s got almost hidden graphics on the front and back of the shirt. The graphic represents The Last City in a nice and subtle way.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Star-Lord QFig Max – Value $20-25 based on other QFigs
I *think* this is the first month of Loot Crate DX with a QFig – and I couldn’t be more excited after seeing it. There was literally an audible gasp as I pulled this out of the box.
This is marked as a “Timed Exclusive”, so you’ll eventually be able to buy these – but you’ll get it here first.
Such a fantastic sculpt! QFigs are right up there with Funko in terms of collectibility for me – I’m just loving them more and more as I get each new figure.
Wonder Woman DC Bombshells Figure – Value $30+ based on non-exclusive figure
This one is perfectly timed with today’s Wonder Woman cinematic release!
This 7-inch tall figure/statue comes with an exclusive metallic paint job – even on the base! I’ve received a few of the small figures in this line – but these statues are definitely a few steps above those – perfect for a deluxe box.
The Complete Marvel Cosmos Travel Guide – Value $12 on Amazon ($20 Retail)
The final item in the box is the only non-exclusive item of the bunch.
This guide to the Marvel Galactic universe is just pure fun. Here’s a little excerpt from Amazon:
The ultimate guidebook to Earth, the Nine Realms, and other dimensions from Marvel Comics, as told by Peter Quill, Rocket, Groot, and the rest of the Guardians of the Galaxy.
Ever since Super Heroes like Thor and the Guardians of the Galaxy started stomping around planet Earth, we’ve had to open our horizons a little and embrace the wider reaches of space. If you’re thinking of journeying to one of the many new realms for a little R’n’R, then don’t leave home without Hidden Universe’s guide to the cosmos. Whether you’re looking to enjoy the divine splendor of Asgard or soak up the multicultural atmosphere of intergalactic waypoint Knowhere, this is the book for you. It even provides some tips on surviving excursions to Planet Moord and Chitauri Prime, if you like your vacations to be on the extreme side.
I spent a ton of time browsing through all of this information, and it’s a lot, and I’m nowhere near done with this 159-page book!
Verdict: As a fan of all of the comic franchises included this month – this is my favorite Loot Crate DX to-date. I’m really big on figures and statues – so getting two new statues is just all kinds of perfect for me. On top of that – the shirt, book, and pin are also just great – so I’m really satisfied with May’s box!
