Loot Crate Play 2015 review
Play Loot Crate 2015
This will be my third Loot Crate in total that I've recived, I've decided to review every subscription box that I sign up for. I know there are thousands maybe even millions of reviews written on Loot Crate and other monthly mystery boxes, but a lot of them are paid to say nice things. Im here to give my honest opinion about the boxes. So you can see if these boxes are right for you.
February's theme was Play, which i though was kind of vague as that could mean anything. Still thought id carry on subscribing, I really wanted to know what they would put in the boxes for this theme. My box arrived at work in the morning and felt a pretty heavy box, which I thought was pretty promising. It also was quite a deep box, which usually means that there will be a Funk pop Vinyl.
I waited all day to unbox my Loot Crate, because I wanted to film my unboxing. I don't know how I managed a full day without opening the box! I expected there to be something in the box to do with some game franchise such as Sega or Pac-man, or something similar. I was really hoping that it wouldn't be to do with a boring board game like Monopoly or something else, Im really not into board games.
Loot Crate Unboxed
When I finally unboxed my Loot Crate here is what I received. First up a DIY 7″ MUNNY vinyl figure from Kid robot. Complete with 3 color dry erase markers. It also wipes clean for endless vinyl figure fun. You can decorate him how you want, and as many times as you like. Loot Crate is currently holding a contest for subscribers to show off their artistic skills on these figures where you could win money and up to a year in free crates.
Up next, is a green Ant Hex-bug Subscribes received one of six of these (two of which are special glow in the dark ‘zombie’ HEXBUGs. these are little robotic bugs, and they are pretty lifelike.
The next item in the box was an exclusive 100 card Superfight Loot crate deck.
In the box there was a little veldt pouch with 2 dices, one black dice and one white dice. With what I initially thought was red hand, but turns out to be rock paper scissors in dice form.
The next item, was a Pac-mac poster, at least I got one thing right about the play theme.
Lastly a gaming book called ready player one, apparently it's a New York times best seller.A bestselling, well reviewed, and much loved dystopian sci-fi story about life inside a video game or as they put it “Willy Wonka meets the Matrix“.
As for the rest of the crate, it comes with the usual theme based pin and magazine. This months issue features a nicely done article about the value of playing co-op games with the ones you’re close to, a nice little info-graphic on the evolution of game controllers and the usual stuff about the items in the box. The box folds up into‘Crate Packing Simulator’ game that the Rock-Paper-Scissors dice are used for.
The Loot Crate Costs £20 a month and the contents are supposed to be worth at least double that. Im not quite sure if I agree what that, but i think if you sold all the items individually you would get about £35, which isn't bad for £20 plus free P&P.
If you are just starting out as i collector, i think that loo crate is a nice little subscription to help you collection from. Plus there are quite a few exclusives you won't get anywhere else. They also make quite nice gifts too, because they are different and unique to other presents.
next months theme is Avengers themed, and there will be an exclusive prop replica, from Marvels agents of shield. Which I'm really excited for. This wasn't my favourite Loot Crate, but still thought it was pretty decent, what made it with the money was all the exclusives.
