January 2018 Loot Crate Review
The January 2018 Loot Crate featured items from 4 franchises – The X-Files, Rick and Morty, Westworld, and Harry Potter.
2 things to note about the presentation – it looks like they’ve definitely done away with the extra little box inversions and the monthly booklet. If those cuts get me the box on time, then I can live with it! If you miss the booklet – you can find a digital version here.
Instead of the booklet, you’ll get a basic information card. I guess I’m just a little surprised at how basic, un-branded, and no-fun the card is. It doesn’t feel very Loot Crate to me.
Westworld Pin – Value $5?
Each month still arrives with a themed pin – and this month’s pin also features Westworld.
Your subscription also gets you some digital loot to be on the lookout for:
You’ll get 3 free comics, some free Westworld bonus digital content, and 20% off of season one at Vudu.
OK – on to the loot!
Rick and Morty Shirt – Value $15?
Um. Yes, please! I’m so pumped for this month’s exclusive design! We all know there’s a lot going on in Rick’s brain, this gives you a tiny glimpse inside.
Westworld SuperEmoScenes Diorama – Value $20?
This is yet another entry into the Loot Crate Artist Series and again features a 3D version of the art of SuperEmoFriends’ artist J Salvador.
These dioramas arrive in pieces but are simple to snap together.
It’s about 4.5 inches tall when constructed – and will partner nicely with your Stranger Things scenes!
The case always has a little bit of extra information about the artist, if you’re looking to find more artwork. I’m hoping to see more stuff from different artists this year.
Harry Potter Socks – Value $10-12?
The Harry Potter item is a pair of house sigil socks.
These fit pretty nicely, not too tight, and have been fine for me in the cold.
They feature the sorting hat – with all of the house represented.
X-Files Card Game – Value $10?
The final item in the box features The X-Files.
“Circle Of Truth” is a little X-Files based card game.
It comes with instruction to get you up and running. I do like that it arrives in a government badge-type holster.
Verdict: I was incredibly let down by the December shipment – this delivery is much better in terms of value and items. I am loving the shirt – it’s probably my favorite Rick and Morty design that I own. I was happy to add the diorama to my collection – and, well, socks are kinda my thing – so I was happy with that. More importantly, this one arrived as expected – while they’re still having shipping issues with other lines, hopefully, this is the start of something more solid for the core crate – still, if you aren’t alright with possible delays, I’d steer clear until they have a better track record.
