December 2017 Fallout Crate Review
This box just arrived this week after falling victim to Loot Crate’s manufacturing delays. I must say – it might be the biggest physical box I’ve ever seen from a geek box company – I was very excited!
Like most geek boxes, you’ll receive an information card that details the items in the box.
Lone Wanderer Perk Pin – Value $5?
This came in two variants – the gold common variant, and the rare black variant. You should expect an enamel pin like this in every box.
Fallout 3 Tunnel Snakes Hoodie – Value $25-30?
I’m excited that they’ve included a hoodie instead of a t-shirt in this box – it’s cool to get something like this in a box that isn’t a limited edition offering!
The front is pretty basic – with a 101 on your upper chest to represent Vault 101.
The graphic is big a bold on the back, though! This is a heavy-duty hoodie – good for the colder weather! It fit as expected and kept me warm during those single-digit temperature days.
Fawkes Figure – Value $25?
The first figure in the brand-new line comes from Fallout 3 – it’s Fawkes.
If you’re a collector of the Halo figure line, then this should be pretty familiar in construction.
As a collector of figures – I can’t help but be excited about another figure line!
Power Armour Build-A-Figure Helmet – Value $5?
These days, figures tend to arrive in ‘waves’ – and to get you to collect all of the figures in that wave, companies tend to offer a piece of a buildable figure in every single character package. Collect all the figures, build the last bonus figure from the wave – that’s what this is, but for subscription boxes.
The first piece is the Power Suit helmet. Every box will have a new piece to build the final figure.
Vault-Tec Schematic Mug – Value $15?
You’ll also get an 11 ounce, all-over printed mug.
This one will go into my geeky mug collection!
Vault-Tec Gaming Pad – Value $15?
If you’re a Fallout PC gamer – you now have a new gaming mousepad to use!
It’s the typical, large, gaming mouse pad that you’re used to – but will some Vault Boy flair.
Verdict: For $40 shipped, I felt that the inaugural box hit the right notes. The items felt like higher-value items that you might find in a Fallout LE box, so it was a pleasant surprise to find them in a bi-monthly box. The hoodie and figure were my easy favorites – and as a figure collector, I’m also excited about the build-a-figure – but I’m more excited to hear your thoughts on that and the box as a whole!
To Wrap Up:
