May 2018 ‘Pew Pew’ Loot Gaming Review

The May 2018 “Pew Pew” Loot Gaming subscription box featured Overwatch, Destiny, and Metroid – with two items featuring Overwatch.

You’ll get a large fold-out information sheet.

One side features a 28×22 poster – this month features an Overwatch anniversary poster.

The reverse side will walk you through the items in the crate.

Pew! Pew! Pin – Value $5?

This month’s pin represents the theme in a pretty straight-forward manner – is it just me who imagines Deadpool being on the other side of this speech bubble?

Overwatch Anniversary Shirt – Value $15?

Like the poster, the shirt honors Overwatch’s two-year anniversary.

The graphic brings together all 27 playable characters!

You’ll also find that little anniversary stamp on the back of your shirt.

World of Nintendo Metroid Figure – Value $15 on Amazon

This month does include a figure – but it’s a non-exclusive figure from Nintendo. Everyone gets this larval stage of the Metroid life-cycle figure.

It’s small – only about 2.5 inches tall – but is also a little squeezable on top – which was a fun little touch.

Destiny 2 host Keychain – Value $15?

This was my favorite item of the bunch – a Ghost keychain! It’s about 2-inches from side to side, which is about as big as I’d want to go with a keychain. Press the middle to play 4 different in-game sounds. It’s a small item, but I thought it was a fun one.

Overwatch D. Va’s Meka Incredibuild Model – Value $18-22 on Amazon

The final item is a wooden build-kit from Incredibuilds. While I’ve done most Incredibuild projects in the past, you can check out my recent Cap Shield build here, this one was over 100 steps long – so I did opt out.

These run across a ton of different brands and markets – surprisingly, this one didn’t arrive with a little book about Overwatch like most do – instead, it arrived with a mini poster.

You’ll get a big sheet of build instructions to get you going. I will say, it helps if you have smaller fingers for these things – the small pieces can be tough to put together. But, once you’re done, you can give it any paint job that you’d like – I think that’s one of the fun parts.

Verdict: This one is tough for me because I’m not an Overwatch player – but I’m definitely in the minority there – so I probably have a slightly different take on the box. The item I like the most was the Destiny keychain, but overall, it fell short for me, personally.

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No – they’re currently taking orders for the June 2018 box. You’ll have until the 27th of each month to get that month’s theme!
