Loot Crate Subscription Box Review + Coupon – Protect – February 2018

This post may contain referral/affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

Loot Crate is a monthly subscription box for geeks and gamers. Each month they include themed collectibles and shirts – they’ve moved towards a mostly exclusive model – so you can’t get most of these items/variants anywhere else!

February’s theme was Protect.

My Subscription Addiction pays for this box. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).

February 2018 Loot Crate Review – Protect

The February 2018 Loot Crate featured items from 5 franchises – Black Panther, Fallout, Pacific Rim, The Expanse, and How To Train Your Dragon.

2 things to note about the presentation – the box inversion is back, and the booklet is now digital-only. 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.

Yay! The box inversion is back. Sometimes, it’s the little things for me. The “Protect” box turns into a vault.

They’ve stuck with the more basic card. You’ll be able to see everything in your box but without any Loot Crate character.

Toothless Pin – Value $5?

This month’s pin features my personal favorite dragon – Toothless!

You’ll get some digital bonus items this month as well. 3 issues of Black Panther on Comixology and unlock Black Panther in Marvel Puzzle Quest.

Black Panther Shirt – Value $15?

This month’s shirt features the latest Marvel Universe installment – Black Panther!

It’s an exclusive shirt with design by Chris Visions. I love the black-on-black look of this.

The Expanse Rocinante Ship Replica – Value $20?

The one in-house Loot Crate item for the month is a replica of the Rocinante from The Expanse.

The Expanse is a show that I’ve had on my list to give a shot for a while. I like the little details in the sculpt, though, especially the translucent blue booster flame.

Pacific Rim Coaster Set – Value $10-15?

The next item in the box is a set of faux-leather coasters featuring Pacific Rim.

They’re thin and bendable with a cork bottom. These will definitely last.

Fallout 4 Art Print – Value $10?

The final piece of this box is an art print featuring Fallout 4. The print arrives rolled up in a protective tube – but it isn’t on any quality cardstock – it’s just normal paper, really.

The back also includes a little discount on Fallout Crate.

Verdict: My favorite items in the box were the shirt and pin, hands down. I like the little replica ship – but having not watched the Expanse, I don’t have any ties to the show (yet). Overall, the value is definitely there for this box – and it arrived on time – which I was super excited about until I just got the email that the February Loot Wear won’t ship until mid-April. Ugh.

I typically like the items and the digital extras as a Comixology reader – but you’re going to have to be alright with delays if you plan on subscribing.

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No, You’ll see the current them on the landing page – theme cutoffs are the 19th of each month at midnight EST.

COUPON – Save 10% off any length subscription, or $3 off month-to-month with coupon code ADDICTION or SAVE3
