January 2018 'Aim to Misbehave' Firefly Cargo Crate Review
January's crate featured the Malcolm Reynolds figure we've all been waiting for along with a towel, patch, pin, and buildable Serenity ship.
You'll get a copy of The Signal, as always, except this month's seems like it has much less content than past issues. Either way, it still has the most important info - your haul!
Serenity Valley Veteran Pin - Value $5?
This month's pin is a little less giant and articulate than past pins - but still cool none the less. The show starts with talk about the recently passed war - and this pin is a call back to just that.
Serenity Beach Towel - Value $20?
Instead of a wearable item this month, they've tossed in a Serenity themed beach towel. As an East Coast dweller, it was a bit odd to get a beach towel in January - but maybe that's just me.
While the backside felt like a nice and absorbent terrycloth material, the front was oddly slick feeling - maybe that's better for beach lounging? Overall, the towel felt a bit small at 55x28 inches, but the graphic does really pop.
Little Damn Heroes – Malcolm Reynolds Figure – Value $20-25
Well, this is the one I've been waiting for since the first delivery of Cargo Crate - it's Mal!
This figure line is 5 inches tall and very nicely detailed and painted. I think this is one of Loot Crate's best exclusive lines in terms of quality and accuracy.
This is the final figure in the first series of Mini Masters - the second series will kick off soon, and it looks like it will include some of the same characters with variant outfits and stances.
Firefly Independents Patch - Value $10?
The box also includes a replica patch created using the original artwork.
It's an iron-on patch, so it'll go on a jacket, backpack, jeans - whatever you'd like - how do you use these?
Serenity Q-Craft - Value $15-20?
This is an exclusive item to the box - it's a cardboard build-kit for the Serenity ship!
I've done quite a few of these recently. They can typically take from 30-45 minutes depending on how tiny and intricate they get. Overall, the directions are very easy to follow.
Bellerophon Wave Card - Value $5?
This is the second shipment in a row where you'll get an exclusive postcard to mail out.
Finally, the deliveries usually arrive with a travel sticker to collect with every theme.
Verdict: Without the typical t-shirt and the towel being a little less usful for me, this definitely isn't a favorite of mine. I do really love that we finally have the Mal figure and have completed the Series 1 line - it's just the collector in me.
Again, and I feel like a broken record here, you'll have to be wary of Loot Crate's shipping isues if you're planning on getting the crates by a certain date!
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.
