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. August’s theme was Mayhem.

September 2-18 Loot Crate DLC

This month, we only receive one digital comic (typically, we’ve seen two) – but it looks awesome, Dark Horse + Predator is something that I’m excited for.

The box inverts into a little Loot Space Station.

Loot Crate Invaders September 2018 - Alien Facehugger Pin Open Top

Facehugger Pin – Value $5

This month’s pin features one of the best creatures from the Alien universe – the Facehugger!

Loot Crate Invaders September 2018 - Venom T-Shirt Front

Loot Crate Invaders September 2018 - Venom T-Shirt Zoomed Front

Venom T-Shirt – Value $15?

I love the Venom character – I have a life-size Venom bust at home, so this month’s shirt is speaking to me! Even if the movie stinks – if it means that I get more Venom stuff, then it’s worth it!

Loot Crate Invaders September 2018 - Alien Walking Facehugger Figure With Box Front

Alien Walking Facehugger Figure – Value $20-25

They continue their Artist Series of figures with one from Joey Spiotto’s Alien Next Door book.

Like all Loot Crate figures, they come in a few pieces. Pop them together to construct the scene.

I love the Alien on its phone. I’m digging this figure – it’s still on the cutesy side of figures, but not the almost Kawaii versions of figures we’ve seen in the past.

Loot Crate Invaders September 2018 - Predator Jungle Camo Bandana Corner Front

Camo Predator Bandana – Value $10

Predator + Camo is just a natural combination. While I don’t really have a use for a bandana, I do think this is a fun Predator design.

Loot Crate Invaders September 2018 - X-Files I Want to Believe Notebook Front 1

Loot Crate Invaders September 2018 - X-Files I Want to Believe Notebook Back

X-Files I Want to Believe Notebook – Value $5-10?

The final item features Invaders of all kinds – it’s The X-Files. You’ll get this little notebook to take on the go and jot down your encounters with the Flukeman.

Verdict: This month, I’m into the shirt, figure, pin, and digital comic – so I’m coming out on top in terms of value. The final two items in the box were just alright for me – but it’s rare that I like everything in a box. This box arrived probably about a week after I expected it – it’s getting better for some lines, but they need to solidify across all of it soon!

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

  2. Eric, thanks for introducing me here to the Joey Spiotto book. I went straight to Amazon from this review, and ordered the book! The cover photo is cute-through-the-roof. “In space, no one can hear you clean.”
