This month’s crate features Ghostbusters, Thor and Loki, Stranger Things, and Buffy! While Loot Crate has had shipping issues with their lines lately, this one arrived on time, only a few hours ago!

Every month, the packaging with fold into something fun to compliment the theme – this month’s box turns into your own Mjolnir!

Every delivery comes with a booklet that highlights each item in the box along with stories and pics of fellow Looters.

Dracula Pin – Value $5?

Each month starts off with your themed pin. This month’s pin is very Halloween – it’s Dracula.

This month’s bonus digital loot give you Thor and Loki in Marvel Puzzle Quest.

Also – check it out! I TOTALLY have missed this, but they have a bonus digital comics section of your account as well – this month, you can score Paper Girls #1 and #2 until October 31st – I highly recommend this series!

Ghostbusters Shirt – Value $15?

This month’s shirt is so 80’s and I LOVE it! It’s the classic logo that everyone knows and loves with an 80’s flair.

Stranger Things Diorama Figure – Value $20?

This month include two little buildable figures – the first comes from Stanger Things.

You can turn Eleven to have her run away or face the Demogorgon.

It’s based on the art from SuperEmoFriends artist J Salvador. It’s about 4.5 inches tall with a 5-inch depth when it’s all constructed. While it’s not my favorite depiction of Eleven or the Demogorgon – it’s fun that Loot Crate can bring a piece of art into the 3D world with their new figure lines.

Based on the back – I’m wondering what else we might see in the future from the ‘Loot Crate Artist Series’.

Thor and Loki PhatMojo Figure – Value $15?

Remember the Alien buildable figure from last month? This continues that toy line with Thor and Loki.

It arrives in pieces, similar to a Banpresto figure.

Once constructed, it’s about 3 inches tall to its highest point. You’ll notice that it’s the same artistic style of the Alien figure as well – I’m guessing we’ll see a few more of these in future boxes. Overall, I don’t hate these, but they also aren’t my preferred vinyl figure from Loot Crate – I really liked the Ice King figure and hope to see more like that!

“Mr. Pointy” Bookmark – Value $5-10?

The final item in the crate is a poplar wood bookmark from Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

it’s a bit on the thicker side when it comes to bookmarks – but I’m sure fans of the show will get a kick out of it.

Verdict: I’m all for vinyl figures all the time – so I was happy to see a double vinyl figure month – but the figures weren’t my favorite designs so that definitely brought my overall excitement down. The being said, they’ve already found a home in my office and I’m absolutely loving this month’s shirt! Combined with the bonus loot and the bonus digital comics – I think you’re almost always coming out ahead in value with Loot Crate. The downside – you might have to wait a bit for your box as they’ve been having issues with manufacturers across their lines (this box shipped right on time).

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No – you can find the current month available at the top of their homepage. They are currently taking November subscriptions – every month’s cutoff date to order is the 19th of the month at midnight EST.

  1. Really loved the stranger things figure! So cool

  2. Apparently Loot Crate is too good to ship my crate. When I inquired for tracking info. they told me they don’t know when it will be shipped. When I inquired about shipping info for my Loot Tees and Loot for Her, they said one of them was delayed until late November due to bad weather and the other who knows. Over it.

  3. Did you not notice the design of the T-shirt? Couple of wavy lines, square and circle from Venkmans telepathy cards from the beginning of the movie??

    • Good catch!
