The Loot Crate February 2017 theme is Build with connections to Power Rangers, Lego Batman, Tetris, 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 is celebrating its five year anniversary, and they have grown considerably in that time. That means they need to find items that have large appeal, are trendy, and can be produced in tens of thousands to meet their demand. The February 2017 crate nails those aspects beginning with the one item that is included in every box. The t-shirt offers a Power Rangers theme with a blueprint depiction of the Megazord composition from the original Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers. The shirt helps subscribers get excited for the new movie, and its simply a high quality design that greatly depicts the best part of the franchise. It’s similar to the Voltron assembly shirt from January 2015, and changes it up with a good blue color instead of another black shirt.
The next big ticket item comes from the Lego Batman Movie to tie directly to the February release of the film. The item is a food container formed from a larger scale Lego Batman head. Whether you put food in it or not, the item offers a great design to be shelf worthy. There’s a tight seal lid in which the bat ears portion comes off, and it just represents the Lego Batman movie so well.
Next up, is a Lego Dimensions figure & vehicle set, and you can get one of five different ones. There is Wonder Woman, Cyborg, Bad Cop, Unikitty, and Benny (the one we got). Lego Dimensions is pretty hot, and getting a fully playable figure as an inclusion is a neat idea. If you don’t have Lego Dimensions, it’s still a neat Lego minifigure. To round out the crate, is a Tetris magnet set allowing you to compose your own Tetris arrangement on your fridge, or any metal surface. There’s also a Megazord pin, and online secret code key.
The February 2017 Loot Crate delvers good value for the theme, and for what’s happening in February. A focused solid entry with a few really good items rather than more subpar items.
