It has FINALLY arrived! This box was about a month late in getting to us – which, unfortunately, isn’t unusual for Loot Crate lately. This box is late because of the Groot sunglasses not being able to get through customs – and because of that, they’re actually not in the box – they will ship out the Groot sunglasses separately to subscribers.
The May theme was ‘Cosmic Party’ – a nice little primer for summer weather. As usual, you’ll get a card with all of the details about the items inside.
Thanos Pin – Value $5-10?
This month’s pin features the king of the cosmos – Thanos! The Marvel Gear and Goods pins are a little bigger than the core Loot Crate pins – so they are probably worth a bit more than the typical value.
Nova Corps Lifeguard Shirt – Value $15?
Each delivery includes an exclusive wearable, and this month features a t-shirt.
Sit poolside with this Nova Corps lifeguard shirt! The fit is really perfect for this shirt – plus, it’s softer than usual – hopefully, this is the new norm for Loot Crate shirts.
Yondu Geeki Tiki Mug – Value $15+?
My favorite item of the month is this exclusive Yondu Geeki Tiki!
They’ve made the entire set of Guardians Geeki Tikis for purchase – but this Yondu mug is exclusive to Loot Crate – and those of us who have seen Guardians of the Galaxy 2 know that you have to have Yondu in your Guardians set!
It’s a 14oz tiki shaped mug that is top-shelf dishwasher safe and microwave safe – a double win for our household.
Captain Marvel Beach Towel – Value $15-20?
The last item (minus the missing glasses) is a beach towel featuring Captain Marvel.
The towel is 57×27 and features Captain Marvel, of course.
It’s a 100% cotton towel and they did a get job with this awesome graphic.
Verdict: As a big Marvel fan, I’ve always been excited when this one hits the mailbox. This month, I’m really liking the contents – especially the Geeki Tiki, pin, and shirt – but the shipping delays have been a problem for too long for Loot Crate! The value is there, but the shipping has definitely hampered the overall experience – I’m hoping they solve it sooner than later.
