Disclosure: I paid for this box because my son is a broke 16-year-old. There are no affiliate links.
Loot Crate announced a mystery crate and t-shirt sale on August 26th. I haven’t been ordering LootCrate much in the past year and decided to purchase one of each for my 16 year old. Subscriptionista has set us a few Loot Crate shirts which he appreciates! The t-shirt shipped on 8/31 and arrived on 9/1. The crate shipped on 8/28 and may arrive on 9/8. I don’t understand FedEx Post delivery times, but at least the crate is not lost.
Subscription:Loot Crate Mystery Crate one time purchase
Cost: $ 25.00 with free shipping
Notes: The sale is no longer available.
It’s the Voltron shirt from the Rewind themed January 2015 box. T will add it to his collection of t-shirts. The Death by Kitties t-shirt feels softer to me.
T loves anything Marvel including Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. The lanyard is from the March 2015 Covert themed box. T hated that box and kept only the replica. He gave everything else to J.
Loot Crate Super Fight: The card deck is from the February 2015 Play themed crate. The boys received the box and played with the deck, but weren’t into it.
Hexbug Scarab: J assisted me in opening the box aka he wanted to pick out the good stuff first. The hexbug will join the other hexbug that he received from the February box.
Avengers Age of Ultron Decal: The boys received one from Subscriptionista and have big plans for the second decal. The decal is from the May 2015 Unite theme box.
The inflatable crown is from the April 2015 Fantasy themed box. Do adults enjoy receiving items like the crown? My little guy loves it.
The Game of Thorns USB stick is from the April 2015 Fantasy themed box. I haven’t decided if I should give it to T because it is a dragon or find a Game of Thorns fan. Is it a dragon? It looks like a cross between a wolf and a dragon.
Verdict: We haven’t ordered many Loot Crate boxes this year. I was hoping the majority of the items would be items the boys wanted. That’s the thing with mystery boxes; it can be a hit or a miss. I’ll call it a hit because the boys will use most of the items. T calls it a miss because he was hoping for different items. I do wonder if adults become frustrated with gamer boxes. A lot of it appeals to my children. Does it appeal to adults too?
