There are two new shipping delays and one shipping update tonight:

Stranger Things crate will finally be shipping by Tuesday – check your email for this update since it includes a $5 coupon code.

Firefly Cargo Crate has shipping delays on November and January Cargo Crates.  Again, check your email for this – there is a $20 coupon code to Loot Vault attached.

And, finally, Loot Tees and Loot Undies are both delayed. Not coupon on this one, though.

  1. November’s Wizard world crate won’t be arriving till mid December due to “unexpected production delay has caused one of the items to arrive late at our warehouse” and they have already pulled payment for January box. Getting a little leery. I think they’re spreading themselves too thin with all the new boxes added

  2. My October Loot Crate arrived the day before Thanksgiving. No explanation, no apology and no coupon. Not sure how I feel about this….

  3. I’m not sure if you posted on it but they have sent me many conflicting emails about payment dates. At first they stated I’d be billed for all but DX on the 1st and dx on 15. Now they are stating All but dx billed on 25th. I’ve slowly been getting rid of crates I joined when it was JUST loot crate and I wanted the gaming stuff, now half the time you don’t know what crate will have what or even what crate it is on.

  4. I’m so disappointed. I bought the Firefly box as a gift for my husband and it started out so well.

    Has there been one box this year that we received when we were supposed to?

    I haven’t been getting the update emails so unless I read it here, I have no idea what’s going on. I sent them a message about it. Hopefully they can fix the issue.

    Thank you for posting updates!

    Don’t think I’ll be renewing this one again.

  5. The “manufacturing issues” could also mean that the factory that makes their stuff got busted for not paying licensing fees to the owners of the trademarks.

    • I can’t speak for the other lines, but they work with QMx for the Firefly Cargo Crate, & they are 100% legit.

      • Ha ha, bad syntax… I want to clarify my opinion that QMx is 100% legit.

        My estimated LootCrate legitness is much (much) lower.

  6. Loot Crate? More like “Give them the Boot Crate”. They screwed me over bad last holiday season. Once burned, twice shy. After reading all of the problems that are never their fault but always someone else’s (like the manufacturers), I am glad I cut my losses when I did!

  7. All these things added up makes me wonder if it really is “manufacturing issues” or whether they’re just not able to pay their vendors, like Nerd Block.

    • That worries me too! I was going to get the Dec box as a present for someone for Christmas but now i’m thinking that’s a bad idea. We got Nerdblock before and this is sounding just like they did before they closed down.

  8. Also got an e-mail in regards to November’s Loot Crate DX. I won’t be receiving mine until January due to manufacturing issues with the Justice League shirt.
