January 2018 Loot Crate DX Discover Review

This month featured Bill & Ted, Westworld, Clue, The Dark Crystal, and Harry Potter!

It comes with a fold-out information card that details the items in your box.

Clue Pint Set – Value $10?

This month’s pin is 3 pins and each is a featured weapon from Clue – this was a fun idea!

Bill & Ted Wyld Stallyns Raglan – Value $20?

I grew up loving both Bill & Ted adventures, so this raglan is right up my alley – it features their band name on the front.

With tour dates on the back, of course.

Harry Potter Q-Fig – Value $15?

I’m a BIG Q-Fig fan (go check out their Animaniacs growing line!) – I don’t have this Harry Potter Q-Fig yet, so I was really happy to find it inside.

Like some Q-Figs, it comes with a removable speech bubble.

Westworld Delores SuperEmoPlush – Value $15?

Loot Crate has been producing a ton of items from the SuperEmoFriends artist J Salvador – this is the second plush from this line.

It’s cool that they’re bringing artist renditions to life – but I’d like to see more artists, the majority has been from SuperEmoFriends. Delores will go well with Barb!

The Dark Crystal: The Ultimate Visual History – Value $45 on Amazon (different edition on-sale for $29)

EDIT: Thanks to Loric in the comments for letting us know that this edition has content cut from the Amazon edition!

This is the ultimate coffee table for Dark Crystal fans.

This is a fantastic look at the art and creation of the Jim Henson classic. The book gets very high reviews and it’s easy to see why.

Verdict: First things first, this yet another delay from Loot Crate – it arrived right around the end of the month, so it wasn’t too bad. When it comes down to the items, I loved it. I’m not quite sure that this will be a global hit, though, since it hit some older and maybe not-so-well-known franchises.

As a general word of caution – Loot Crate has been having numerous manufacturing delays across a number of their lines – it’s something to beware of if you’re trying to get a box on a schedule.

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 January subscriptions – every month’s cutoff date to order is the 19th of the month at midnight EST.

  1. The book is absolutely amazing and paid for the box in of itself!!! And the shirt was just perfect. I loved everything in the box, including the Dolores plush and the pins from the Clue game. Loot Crate is always worth every penny for me!!!

  2. I need the Clue pins and Bill and Ted shirt!

  3. Wow. That book is amazing. It’s the only thing I like though.

    • That’s not the same book from Amazon.

      Loot had their own edition made and cut tons of the content. The book is meant to be filled with notes and concept art that is wedged in like its a scrap book. That’s the $45 version.

      The Loot version scrapped all of those parts and didn’t even print that content. It’s just excluded making some of the pages nonsensical as they refer to missing art pieces.

      • Thanks for this – I didn’t know his was a lesser edition!
