March Loot Crate Review

Loot Crate is a monthly subscription box that is very unique in the subscription box world. It is a geek/gamer themed box.  I think this is the only box with that theme, and I think there will be some other box companies looking at the success of loot crate and making a geek/gamer box.  It might just spark a new genre in boxes.

This box costs $19.99 a month, but like most subscription services, you can save a couple bucks by getting a 3 or 6 month subscription.  They also sometimes send bonus items for people who upgraded, so that provides a lot of incentive to upgrade in my book(that's what made me do it!.)  This box ships on the 20th of each month.  Am I the only one who wished that there should be some boxes that ship on like the 28th? Then you would at least have a box for the subscription box "drought" part of the month (the very beginning).

Loot Crate describes their box as a comic-con swag bag sent in the mail every month.  I would say that is pretty accurate.  I usually don't go to any conventions so I guess I can get my "swag-fix" this way instead. And if you don't like one of the items, they usually make great gifts to geek/gamer friends!

 This month's box didn't have an info card for me ):
Pop! Star Wars Yoda Vinyl Bobble-Head ($10)- I am guessing that this was the "main" thing in the box; and I'll admit it is pretty neat.  It would make a super awesome gift to a star wars fan, because I am not a huge fan of star wars.

One Hex-Bug Nano ($6)- From what I understand this is a little electro-bug that you turn on and it starts to spaz out.  Kinda wierd. I always thought these were super overpriced, but I see they have lowered the prices.  I do not know what I will do with this. Who knows, maybe I'll get addicted to them like subscription boxes? Probably not, but this will make another gift too.

2 Star Wars Postcards- ($0.37)- I guess I'll use these for decoration

One wall sticker of something ($3??)- I do not know what this is a wall sticker of, so I don't know the value.  I hope Walls360 made it.

1  loot crate bracelet ($1.50??)- I also don't know the value since this was made by loot crate   I haven't worn the last bracelet they sent me,  but I'm sure I'll find a use for them somewhere.

The total value of my March Loot Crate is about $20. I am not blown away by this value, but not disappointed  It is not as good as usual, but I still liked most of the contents.

Verdict- Subscribe if you are into this stuff for sure!


  1. It is! I would've been a little disapoited if it loom exactly like yoda from the movies.
