Nov. 2015 Loot Crate [Combat] Unboxing

Purchased Affiliate / Referral Link

Tofu already has a subscription to Loot Crate, and since they were doing a promo that allows two free boxes to other people, I was able to sign up for the November box free of charge.

What is it?

Loot Crate is a geekery monthly subscription box full of trinkets that range from tees to mugs, and figurines to stickers. Each month has a theme, and this month's is Combat.


I "purchased" mine for $0, but the regular pricing models can be viewed here.


My box was free and there was no shipping cost, but the usually amount is $6 USD per box.


It comes in a black box with the Loot Crate logo outside of it, as seen above. There are no extra packaging materials.


All of the contents inside the black box.

TMNT Shredder Sunglasses
First up are these Shredder shades. They are funky, but other than that, I don't know what to do with them! I can't really display them, either. I feel neutral about them and I might give them away to someone.

Exclusive Fallout 4 Vault Boy Bobble Head
And here's Vault Boy! But... I don't follow the Fallout franchise so this is a miss for me. Plus, I don't like bobble heads. It will be given away to someone who appreciates it.

Cute But Deadly Vinyl Mystery Figures
Cute But Deadly look like a selection of Blizzard's characters turned chibified and stuffed into blind bags. The last Blizzard game I played was Warcraft 3. Anyways, I wanted Sylvanas but got Zeratul instead. Tofu wants it, so it will be given to him. These figures are pretty hefty for their size, and are well painted.

Exclusive Cute But Deadly Magnet Set
These are magnets to accompany the blind bag figurines.

Exclusive Street Fighter Hyper Looting Comic Book
A Street Fighter comic book. I'm not particularly a fan of Street Fighter, and this comic looks kinda cheesy from the title. Now I gotta find a Street Fighter comic book lover to pass this on.

The Hunger Games Mockingjay Part 2 Pin
Although I am partial to the Hunger Games, the mockingjay pin is beautiful with its intricate details of the wings, tail, and breast feathers. I'm keeping this and I'll wear it to the movie showing.

Combat Pin
Of course, there's the Loot Crate pin. Gotta collect them all!

Here's the Loot Crate pamphlet of interviews, box contents, and prizes of the Mega Crate. Do people actually read any of the contents besides what is included in the box? They have the zine online and I think printing it is just a waste of material resources.

There's also 4 perforated tags that you rip out so you can gift someone some loot with those tags.


I'll have to say that this box, and Loot Crate as a whole, is not for me. I am simply not interested in the majority of this particular box because I do not really keep up with a lot of pop culture happenings and like enough of a variety of stuff. When I initially found out about Loot Crate, I was excited for the reveals and wanted to purchase a subscription. It is a good thing I did not and chose to view the contents from month to month as a bystander, because then I would be disappointed and out of money.
