The September 2017 Loot Crate DX included items from Power Rangers, Aliens, Star Trek: TNG, Heavy Metal, and Mega Man.
You'll get a fold out information card that lists out your items.
Robotic Pin - Value $5-10?
Each month includes a themed pin with the delivery. They're about twice the size of the pins delivered with core crate. This month's pin shows off a DX robot skull.
Aliens Raglan Shirt - Value $20?
This month's DX includes a raglan tee featuring Bishop from the Aliens franchise.
The like the graphics and the color scheme - I typically don't really like this type of shirt, but it fits me really well!
Power Rangers Alpha 5 Scoops Figure - Value $20-25?
This month also adds to the Loot Crate created figure line with Alpha 5 from Power Rangers.
It arrives in 3 pieces to construct.
Alpha 5 has a 5 scoop ice cream cone with each scoop representing one of the Power Rangers. It's about 7 inches tall from the base to the top of the scoops.
Mega Man MUSCLE Pack Figure Set - Value $18 based on similar products in their store
The next two items are from Super 7.
You'll get Shadow Devil and Mega Man to pit against each other!
M.U.S.C.L.E. or Millions of Unusual Small Creatures Lurking Everywhere, were a big figure in the 80's - I can really remember the old He-Man figures! So, Super 7 is bringing them back to the forefront - and not just in the classic pink color anymore!
Shadow Devil is about 3 inches tall, while Mega Man is just under 2 inches tall - each in their own color.
Heavy Metal Lord of Light ReAction Figure - Value $15 based on similar products in their store
Next, Super 7 brings us a figure from Heavy Metal - a glow edition of the Lord of Light.
Super 7 must have bought the rights to these ReAction figures - I can see old products in the store listed as Super7/Funko, while the new ones are solely Super7 - I think they're a great company to make these since they focus on retro toys!
Lord of Lights stands about 4.5 inches tall - they stand pretty well on their own, but you can also buy a pack of 10 stands on the site.
It's a fun little design of one of Jack Kirby's creations, and even better...
It glows in the dark! How cool does this look?
Star Trek: The Next Generation Socks-In-A-Box - Value $15-20?
The final item in the box is a set of sublimated socks.
Pop open your Borg cube and two designs - the Starfleet design.
And the Borg design. Not everyone is a fan of the sublimated sock (it allows for a better all-over print), but I grew to love them when they were including them in Loot Socks all the time. They seem to have stopped including them there, so I was happy to see them again in this box.
Verdict: I ended up liking this box much more than I thought, and the Loot Crate figure turned out to be my least favorite item - that's typically not the case, so I'm pretty happy! I do think this box may not be as much of a hit if you're not getting the nostalgic feels from the 80's style toys, so I'm curious to hear what you have to say about it!
