May 2018 Marvel Gear + Goods ‘Assemble’ Review

The “Assemble” box features the Avengers while focusing a lot of the item on the latest movie from the Marvel Cinematic Universe – Infinity War.

It comes with an information card that can double as a frameable poster. It’s a thicker cardstock, too – ours arrived in decent shape – still in good condition to hang up.

Black Panther Battle Cry Pin – Value $5-10?

This month’s pin moves away from the comic book cover pins of the recent past and goes with a Black Panther theme. All it’s missing is “Wakanda Forever!”.

Infinity War Shirt – Value $15?

This month’s exclusive shirt highlights Black Panther, Thor, Iron Man, Hulk, Black Widow, Vision, and Cap in this retro Infinity War graphic. What I like most about this is how it feels like it ties in with the recent Marvel movie posters, I get the same vibe from this shirt and the posters – I’m really liking it.

The upper back features a little Infinity Gauntlet as well – why not.

Infinity War Stacking Glass Coasters – Value $9-13 online

While this isn’t an exclusive, I thought it was one of the cooler items in the box.

They are 4 separate glass coasters – very high-quality.

As you stack them up…

You can start to assemble…

The Avengers!

Each coaster has 4 little plastic bumpers on the bottom, too. Very nice.

Infinity Gauntlet 20-ounce Sculpted Ceramic Mug – Value $22

This is also a non-exclusive item – and I think you could consider it the hero item of the box, as well.

This is a large 20-ounce hand painted mug of the Infinity Gauntlet – I feel like all Infinity Gauntlet mugs should be oversized. It’s also hand-wash only.

Incredibuilds: Captain America Civil War 3D Wood Model – Value $9 on Amazon

The last item in the box is an Incredibuilds wooden model kit.

Each comes with a sheet of perforated wooden pieces to pop out.

Along with instruction to assemble it.

These always come with a little booklet, too. Inside, you’ll find all sorts of detail about your favorite heroes.

I would have totally been into this at a younger age.

Here it is assembled! I think it took about 15-20 minutes – so not nearly as bad as the R2-D2 model I had to do in the past!

It has some good detail to it in the end – you can let it stand by itself, pop it on the stand, or even use it with a figure. These are also ready to be painted if you’d like to take it a step further.

Verdict: It seems that the Marvel subscription is more on track with its shipping schedule than the recent past – so that’s good. I thought they the items fell nicely into the ‘Assemble’ theme with the stackable coasters and Incredibuild set. I was surprised by the lack of exclusive, though – exclusives aren’t a deal-breaker for me at all – as long as the items are good, I’m on board!

  1. Am I the only one disappointed with this box? Don’t get me wrong, I liked everything in it but it didn’t wow me. The reason why I’ve always liked this box is because it’s always revolved around a theme (ie. beach, party, kitchen, travel) but this time it was just about Infinity War, which everyone else does. Also, all of these items can be purchased separately. I always love exclusive items from Loot Crate because they give a geeky spin to common everyday items that you wouldn’t regularly find anywhere. They could’ve done so much more since there were so many characters or something unique with the infinity stones. Again, I liked the box but I wasn’t impressed.

  2. Love it. Wish I bought.
