The Loot Crate March 2017 theme is Primal with connections to Overwatch, Logan, Jurassic World, and more. We’re here to unbox all that’s included to show off the $20/month geek/gamer box for the new month. Our Loot Crate unboxing:
Loot Crate ($20/Recurring)
Loot Crate has started 2017 strong with great showings in January and February. Can they keep it going? The March 2017 edition includes four main items along with the usual flier and pin. The main item each month is a t-shirt, and this month’s shirt is all about Overwatch. It’s a grey shirt with a big banner of “Primal Rage” across the chest. Primal Rage is a special mode for Winston, the big ape, and the shirt captures it. The shirt is definitely made for Overwatch fans to nail that theme, but the shirt doesn’t have the widest outside appeal compared to the other franchises in this crate.
The next main item is the figurine, and March 2017 includes a Metals Die Cast figure of Logan. You will receive either Old Man Logan, standard Logan, or Adamantium Logan. Metals Die Cast aren’t exactly Funko Pops in terms of popularity, QFigs in terms of styling, or KidRobot in terms of quality. They often end up on clearance shelves at your local big box store, but they still have their own unique style. You can’t go wrong with Logan in March, and the top heavy design of Metal Die Cast really fits him.
Two smaller items round out the crate beginning with a Jurassic World inspired sign. It’s a warning sign for the electric fences, and it’s great piece to define any of the Jurassic movies. Then, there’s a Predator bottle opener. It’s not the biggest item, but it gets the job done in a fun and recognizable form.
Loot Crate stumbles a bit for March 2017 with odd choices across the board. Overwatch for the t-shirt seems like an odd match, and relegating Predator to a bottle opener is a let down. There are better figure choices than Metals Die Cast, and it all adds together to be a disappointing crate.
