May 2019 Loot Crate ‘Nemesis’ Review
Let’s dive into our items!
Ghostbusters Terror Dog Pin
This hellhound is arguably not a ‘good boy’ but he sure does make a cool looking pin!
Ghostbusters Slimed Figure
Can you believe it is the 35th anniversary of Ghostbusters this year? Wow! This Bill Murray as Venkman figurine is the perfect way to celebrate. The details on this thing are pretty great and I love how Slimer is clear green plastic.
Jaws Drain Plug
Jaws was the first film that actually terrified me as a kid, even though I lived in a landlocked state where shark attacks were—predictably—impossible. I kind of really love this drain plug dedicated to everyone’s favorite shark. It is made out of a heavier rubber material and does its job quite well.
Blade Runner Patch
I am not super familiar with Blade Runner, but my husband is into it. I am sure he will be charmed by this embroidered patch!
The Legion of Regrettable Superheroes: Half-Baked Heroes from Comic Book History – Estimated Value $24.95 (buy the non-Loot Crate edition here for $17.70)
FYI: This is a repeat item from July 2015! (Thanks Matt!)
Ok, I love books. I buy way too many. It drives my husband nuts! I especially love books like this that are more of the coffee table variety, and are image-heavy. As soon as I pulled this book from the box I started to giggle, because it is genius. A collection of the worst and failed superheroes, complete with their authorship info, years active, and general weaknesses.
My fave so far? On page 59, we discover a hero called Speed Centaur, who—you guessed it—is a centaur. Under his weaknesses? Sugar cubes.
Honorable mention: Page 27. “The Eye” is just a giant floating eye.
The Legion of Regrettable Supervillains: Oddball Criminals from Comic Book History – Estimated Value $24.95 (buy the non-Loot Crate edition here for $16.96)
FYI: This is a repeat item from October 2016! (Thanks Matt!)
I was also so excited to see a supervillain version of this book.
Worth mentioning: The Balloon Maker on page 16. He turns people into human balloons. What a fun guy!
Verdict: I thought Loot Crate was excellent this month because I love those books! The figurine was also really well done and I thought the Jaws sink stopper was cute and super unique. More like this, Loot Crate!
To Wrap Up:
Value Breakdown: This box is $24.99 ($19.99 plus $5 shipping a month) meaning each of the 6 items included has an average cost of $4.17.
