Spider-Punk T-Shirt – Value $15?

The PS4 Spider-Man game is SO GOOD – so I’m excited to grab anything featuring Spidey right now! Spider-Punk has come to the forefront a bit with the suit being an unlockable item in-game – on top of that, it has an awesome special move attached to it. While you’re crushing enemies with power chords, you can rock this shirt that is inspired by Spider-Punk’s vest.

Doom Cacodemon Bottle Opener – Value $10-15?

The next item is a literal metal item. It features Cacodemon – one of the demons from the DOOM series. I’m happy to see magnets on the back so that you can keep this easily within reach – and showcase it, of course.

Metal Sonic Figure – Value $15-20?

Typically, my favorites items in these boxes are the figures/statues – that was the case again this month. As someone who was raised on Sonic, I’m always happy to add to my Sonic figure collection – and this is the first time getting anything Metal Sonic, so it’s even better.

Loot Gaming Metal September 2018 - Metal Gear Solid Pint Glass With Box

Metal Gear Solid Pint Glass – Value $10-15?

Finish the box off with a pint of your favorite beverage in a classic Metal Gear Solid glass. I can’t believe it’s been 20 years since the Metal Gear Solid Playstation game – while it makes me feel old, it also brings back some great memories of beating that game – especially the section where you had to switch controller ports to beat the mindreading foe. It was such a classic.

Verdict: As a gamer who is currently loving Spider-Man and has tons of nostalgia for both Sonic and Metal Gear Solid on PlayStation I thought the items were pretty darn good this month. There was nothing that totally blew me away, but I thought it hit my interests pretty well – so it was solid for me.

To Wrap Up:

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

  1. Anything about the new box to come?

  2. Loving that Metal Sonic figurine!

  3. This box just arrived. I’m still waiting on my August box. I am not at all pleased. The shirt looks so plain!

  4. I got an email with tracking for the August crate this morning with an estimated delivery date of Oct 4th (finally). The Metal themed crate I thought was overall pretty good this time around. The bottle opener looks sweet on my fridge and will see plenty of use opening beers, and the Metal Sonic figure is pretty sick.

  5. Has anyone heard anything regarding August’s gaming box??

    • The last we heard was mid-September for the Skyrim item to arrive. It’s still hasn’t shown up for us.
