Loot Crate

I’ve been back and forth in my mind about Loot Crate for some time, but it’s finally time to share this with others and see what others make of it!

Loot Crate is pretty well known now, but any extra exposure is a good thing, right? So for geeks everywhere, there is Loot Crate.

What do you get?

Loot Crate gives you a random box every month, on a recurring package. Every month, you pay a certain amount and you get given a crate, often worth more than what you pay. The contents of a Loot Crate box is varied and sometimes you might not get the same thing as other people. You get “one of a series” of items. It’s a good way to get geek culture exposure and for a product to get recognised.

This is the only time I can truly understand these unboxing videos, as they are a surprise each month.

You seem to become aware of the months “themes” quite quickly with the Loot Crates, but once you’ve gotten the theme, you’ll get items mostly associated with that theme. The current one on the website is “Titan” themed. Ooh err!

There are some big names partnered with Loot Crate, too! Names such as Marvel, DC Collectibles, Nintendo, there’s something for the geek in everyone, no matter what your geekdom.

How much is it?

Depending where you are, the price does somewhat vary. For the US, it’s $13.37 per month plus shipping and handling. For anywhere outside of the US, it’s quite a bit more expensive at $29.95 per month, but with shipping and handling included.

I’ve been reserved in going out to get these, as I’ve been trying to suss out: Should I, or should I not go for it? It seems great as I adore little figurines (Such as my adorable chibi-Qubeley figurine).

He's so small and Qube-- I mean cute.

What do you think of the idea of Loot Crate?
Who thinks I should at least do a trial and do a small update to this post about the Loot Crate I receive? It’ll likely not be until next months Loot Crate, thus it’d be late April if I did get it… But hey, if I get people recommend it, I will try it at least once.

  1. It’s not something I would go for as it’s quite a bit of dosh for a random item. If you give it a trial by all means do a blog post on it. I would be curious to see what you get.

    • Case and point exactly here. It’s a lot of cash for what is basically a lucky dip. With this being said, I would probably do it at least once for the novelty factor of getting a random box with random items, so I can discuss the type of quality of items I get, along with what each item was actually worth, etc.

      It’ll be quite the interesting experiment, to say the least.

    I’m the same as you: I’ve been thinking about Loot Crate for a while but haven’t taken the plunge just yet! I’d be interested in seeing how a trial goes, if I don’t end up doing a trial myself beforehand. ;)
