July 2016 Loot Crate Unboxing: Futuristic

What is Loot Crate?

Taken from the Loot Crate site, “Each month, Loot Crate™ ships a themed mystery box of the best geek, gaming, and pop culture gear to a subscriber base of over 100,000 Looters. We emphasize phenomenal support and content, and include gear from some of the most respected entertainment and consumer product companies in the world.” Loot Crate sells for $13.95 a month plus $6.00 shipping and handling. You can save on the costs by subscribing for longer periods as well. If you like this theme check out the link at the bottom to subscribe.

What’s in the Box?

The first item in the box is a cool Rick and Morty t-shirt. The shirt is a blueprint for Rick’s portal gun. I love the Rick and Morty show and I hope they make season three just as good as the last two. Wubba lubba dub dub!

 

The next big item is a mini replica of the Planet Express Ship. This figure is made by Quantum Mechanix, same company that makes the Q-Figs from past crates. The model has some areas that needs some clean up, looks like excess glue around some parts. Overall, it’s a great model.

Next figure is a Megaman variant from Kid Robot. This model is the red and white variant and is also a Loot Crate exclusive. I’m not a huge Megaman fan but I’ll put this on my shelf.

This comic by Valiant is a Loot Crate exclusive. I’m not familiar with Valiant comics but this one looks awesome. It looks like a cyberpunk series and reminds me of Shadow Run. Can’t go wrong with futuristic Samurai.
Last items in the box  are from Star Trek. The first item is a replica plaque from the U.S.S. Enterprise. You can turn anything in the Enterprise! It’s an okay item and it’s a better quality decal than the previous crates. The other Star Trek item is the monthly pin. The Vulcan salute pin like last month’s pin doesn’t have the Loot Crate branding. It’s a great pin that will go well in my pin collection. The pin also comes with a downloadable code for Star Trek Online. The Starfleet Admiral’s Commission Pack gives you some in game stuff and the value is around $50.00. I don’t play Star Trek Online so I will give this away to the first person to comment at the bottom.
The box can be turned into a landing pad for a space ship. It would be a cool way to display the Planet Express ship. Sadly my box was damaged during shipping and I won’t be using it for a display. In the monthly magazine, they included a Rick and Morty coloring page. Once Loot Crate releases the magazine on its website, you can print one too!

Final Thoughts

The Rick and Morty shirt and Planet Express ship were the best items from this month and easily worth the price of the box. I’m interested in reading the comic book and the Megaman mini will just go on my shelf. I’m not a huge Star Trek fan but the decal is cool as well as the pin. Overall, this month was better than last month but their is always room to be better.

    Really do like that pin, but then I’ve always been a fan of Trek. Thanks for opening and sharing so many boxes. 🙂

    Incidentally, if that Starfleet Admiral’s Commission Pack is still available, I’d be quite grateful if you could pass it my way. Thanks! 🙂

        Yes, the email is quite current, so thank you in advance! Very generous of you. I haven’t done a subscription box in a while since I move around a lot and while the things in the crates are cool, its more to take around, but it does mean I miss out on some really nice items every once in a while. So thank you again for sharing the contents of these things!

        Sorry about the multiple comments – didn’t realize at first you had it set to manual approval. 🙂

    The shirt is pretty epic, I have to say, and I like how the box unfolds. It’s a pity I missed this one, given I’m a pretty big fan of all things sci-fi!
