Loot Crate is a monthly subscription box for geeks and gamers and collectors of all ages. Each month they include themed collectibles and shirts that are exclusive items/variants at the time of shipment.
January's theme was 'Binge' and had a bit of a different feel to it with franchises.
Please Note: This arrived pretty much on time (I'm just super late with the review) - we received it early-February. But, to track your subscription, they now have this handy-dandy shipping status page to help track down what's happening across crates.
My Subscription Addiction pays for this box. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).

January 2019 Loot Crate Binge Review
January's “Binge” theme features items from Black Mirror, Spongebob, Futurama, and Friends - I told you it was an odd mix!
The box converts into a tv screen and lets you use Loot Lens in the Loot Crate app to unlock some augmented reality if you're interested - again, I like the stuff they're doing with their boxes.
Here's what this augmented reality looks like (I could actually do it from my box picture!):
Video not working? Check it out here.
It's pretty cool! I did the nature walk one and it was a fun little extra.
It comes with a booklet that will detail the items in the box.
I'm happy that they've returned to the information booklet!
There is ever more augmented reality to be had this month!
Black Mirror Pin - Value $5?
This month's pin is from Black Mirror and gives you a piece of the U.S.S. Callister. This is one of my favorite episodes (I actually really enjoy most of them, though).
Each month comes with digital comics through my all-time favorite app, Comixology. This month features issues #1 and #2 of Sabrina The Teenage Witch's new series.
Black Mirror Tee - Value $15?
I love a good black-on-black design, and for it to be from Black Mirror makes it doubly awesome. This shows off a little icon that represents one of Black Mirror's episodes - it even has the season and episode number underneath. I'm very much into this.
Friends Socks - Value $12?
This might be the most surprising item in the box in terms of a geeky franchise, simply because I wouldn't consider Friends to be a geeky franchise at all. That being said, I do love Friends - and specifically love Joey/Monica with the chicken on their head - so I can't act disappointed to see these.
Futurama Blind Box - Value $10-11 on Amazon
I collect statues and figures - so any box with a vinyl figure in it always sees me perk up. The January box features a Futurama Kidrobot figure. I got Fry, who did you get?
Spongebob Calendar - Value $10?
Lastly, keep track of the important dates in 2019 with this mini Spongebob Squarepants calendar.
Verdict: The franchises were a bit odd this month - but, honestly, it was pretty dead on for me, personally. I'm betting it's not the case with a lot of Looters out there. It'll be fun to see what their augmented reality stuff brings - and it was notably not that late this month...so, positive signs?
