Fortunately we are only waiting on March/April boxes but the real issue is that Loot Crate has bit off WAY more then they could chew and are even now CONTINUING to do so. When it was just ONE subscription box, being what is now the “Core Crate” the items were of good quality, the shipping was on time & the customer service was satisfactory…THEN, they began adding multiple Crate/item options and are STILL launching new crates. THIS was their downfall. LevelUp (LootWear) should have been the only expansion (if any) but INSTEAD they added Loot Crate DX, Loot Gaming, Wizarding World, FallOut, FireFly, Star Trek, Star Wars, LootAnime, WWE, MLB, LootSports, LootFright & these are ALL complete train wrecks that have been poorly executed. ON TOP OF ALL THAT, Loot Crate has burned bridges with a LOT of distributors, shipping partners, printing companies, etc. The item quality has COMPLETELY tanked, PLUS they are being taken to court by FUNKO & several others. They have had a NUMBER of price increases while including REPEAT items in their crates as well as TERRIBLE in-house exclusives that are poorly made, BARELY licensed products all in a stint to lower cost & quality but again, while RAISING subscription costs. The number of items has gone from 6-8 items to 4-6 to now being LUCKY if you get 4 items you haven’t gotten before. If LootCrate would JUST dial it back to 1 or 2 crates, find & stick with a few partner companies (distribution, printing, product licensing, etc) and maybe even rebuild relationships with some of the brands that drew people to LootCrate from the beginning..it is POSSIBLE that they could come back from the brink of destruction but they won’t. They are just barely keeping appearances & sooner than later, the company WILL fall and when that happens, a LOT of people are going to eat that cost. I suggest that If you REALLY want something from LootCrate then wait until near the END of the cycle & use one of the promo codes they put out ranging from 30-50% off and DO NOT sign up for ANYTHING over 1 month. Then immediately after you subscribe, go in & cancel so you can repeat this method the following month without having to worry about an automatic billing. It really is a shame what LootCrate has evolved into but I’m afraid we are at a point of no return….
