My First Lootcrate


I’ve been hearing about these “Lootcrate” things for a few months, but only recently really had ’em brought to my fuller attention. And with the advertising push for the September crate–the month’s theme being “Galactic”–I gave in and decided to go ahead and order one.

loot_crate_september14_01So my first Lootcrate arrived this week…I don’t know what size box I was truly expecting, but this was not a bad size at all.

A Lootcrate-exclusive Tribble. A RetroAction figure from the Alien wave (I got Ripley…I was expecting the Alien itself, so kinda disappointed there. Not really sure what to make of the other stuff…not particularly impressed with the other inserts.

I figure the Alien figure would be $10, the Tribble would probably be at least $5-$9 if not $10, and the mystery mini would be at least $6.

All in all, not bad, and while I may not be overly “excited” by what I’ve got, they’re cool to have, and I look forward to finding out what October’s theme will be.
