As you know I’m a Geek (well an Average Joe too!) And I love getting geek related stuff. I’ve known about Lootcrate for awhile now but was always hesitant of joining their service. Then after I picked up Titanfall I noticed the theme for March’s Loot Crate. They had teamed up with EA and had a Titanfall theme to it! Here was my chance to check out Loot Crate, get some great loot, and write a review of what we’ve all been missing when it comes to Loot Crate. Join me as I take a look inside the box at this months Loot Crate review.
Note: No, I did not get paid anything for writing this review. I will receive a $5.00 discount if you click on the referral links I provide in the article. So, if you decide to sign up? Please click on the links provided it and help a geek out!
What is Loot Crate?
Loot Crate is a subscription based service where each month they will send you a mystery box with random geek related stuff in it. What’s in the box? That’s part of the service’s appeal. You never know what they are going to send you. Sometimes you’re provided a theme and it is up to them to fill the box with the bits of awesome. This month’s (March 2014) theme “Attack on Titanfall” sold me immediately. I currently love the game so the thought of getting some game related swag had my inner geek jumping for joy!
Couldn’t have been simpler. Just put in your info and your set. What was even cooler? They made it so my very first crate was only $14.00 instead of the $18.00 it normally is. And what is nice is you can sign up to receive discounts if you go with their quarterly/yearly plans as well.
So What Did You Get Already!
As I mentioned it was “Attack on Titanfall” for the month of March. This is to help celebrate the release of Titanfall to the masses. In this months box I received:
- A Titanfall T-Shirt ($10.00 – $20.00)
- Attack on Titan Manga book ($7.00)
- Titanfall Lanyard ($2.00)
- Discount Code for the Titanfall Prima Player Guide (Short version) ($9.99)
I give it a rough estimate from what I could find from Amazon at around $30.00 +/-.
Although I probably wont use some of the items, overall I really liked how they blended the theme together. I’m a big anime fan and Attack on Titan is a crazy story. You can check out the series on Crunchyroll or check purchase the episodes directly from Amazon.
One lucky winner each month has a chance to win the Mega Crate which is valued considerably higher than your typical Loot Crate. With the Titanfall theme one lucky winner receives (Amazon affiliate links btw):
- Titanfall Collector’s Edition
- Titanfall Limited Edition: Prima Official Game Guide
- Attack on Titan Cosplay Backpack Shingeki No Kyojin School Bag Khaki
- Nintendo 3DS XL – Yoshi Edition
- Kindle Fire HDX
This is all valued at over $700.00! Who wouldn’t want the Titan collectible? Or a Kindle Fire? Or a Nintendo 3DS?
The other benefit of joining Lootcrate? When you sign up with them you’ll want to sign up for their newsletter as well. Each month they will provide you with special discounts related to the crate you received for the month. This month’s discounts included GAEM’s Portable gaming carrying case, GunnarOptik gaming glasses, and 15% off of Astro gaming headsets!
The Only Downside?
Hmm.. well I guess its all in how you look at it. With a mystery box service like Loot Crate – your gonna get what you get. Some months aren’t going to appeal to you as much as others. If you don’t like getting surprises related to gaming, anime etc.? Then this isn’t the service for you. The good news is you aren’t stuck with the subscription as you can cancel it at any time.
