November 2017 'Crime and Politics' Firefly Cargo Crate Review

Like the September box, this was SUPER late. Loot Crate has been having shipping issues across its boxes lately - so make note of that if you need your geeky goods on time!

You'll find details and stories about the featured character - and all the info you need about your items.

Badger Family Heirloom Flamingo Pin - Value $10?

Every delivery comes with a themed pin. This month's pin is more of a lapel pin for your Badger cosplay needs. Very cool.

Crooks in Ties Shirt - Value $15?

This month's shirt is a callout to Badger's style choices.

Little Damn Heroes – Badger Figure – Value $20-25

This month's figure gives you a better look at Badger's style choices!

This figure line features figures that are 5 inches tall - with the character as the centerpiece. The January figure is the last in the line, so I'm curious to see what happens next.

QBit Figure – Value $10-15?

I was happy to see the return of QBit figures in this month's box! We're now into series 2 of the figure line, and everyone got Malcolm.

I really like this little stylized figure line. It seems like these will keep rolling out with future boxes, even if the main figure line changes.

Eavesdown Docks Wave Card - Value $5?

You'll get an exclusive postcard to send to a friend.

Finally, the deliveries usually arrive with a travel sticker to collect with every theme.

Verdict: I'm a big collector, so I can't help but enjoy adding to both figure lines. The downside, I really don't have any feelings about Badger as a character, so all of the Badger-themed items had me feeling a bit 'ehh'. With the $7 price increase, that means you're going to have to like most of the box to get value from it, too. Let's see where this subscription goes.

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No. You'll find the current theme on their landing page.

Unfortunately my QBit arrived broken. Mal’s head came off as soon as I took him out of the box. After a week of back and forth emails, they finally agreed to send me a replacement in another 2-4 weeks. As much as I love Firefly, between this and the price increase and the delayed shipping, I’m close to canceling. 😟

My Qbit Mal did to. They sent a replacement in about a week, even though they said it would be weeks. The Badger crate was the last straw, I just cancelled today.

I LOVE Badger! I am looking to swap for the Badger fig & the flamingo pin. I have most of the other Little Damn Heroes figures unlisted. Click on my name to hit me up on the swap boards!

Hi Marion, I can’t figure out how to hit you up on the swap boards. I would imagine this is a very very very long shot but is there any chance you have the Kaylee figure and would be willing to swap for Badger/the pin (the whole badger box)? I didn’t know about the sub until the second box 🙁
