Loot Crate Review July 2014 Villians plus August Theme, Spoilers and Coupon Code!

Loot Crate for July 2014 had a theme of "Villians" and while that wasn't super interesting to me, my husband said he had to have it.  Next months theme is more my style!  Read on to discover more!

Here it is... mostly!

The T-shirt was right on top!  This was done in-house at Loot Crate and is supposed to be a combination of Joker and Loki.  I think it's ugly but DH grabbed it and put it on right away.  I have no other pictures of it because of that.
This is what happens when I let my husband and his gamer friends open the Loot Crate.  Things disappear!  I like to take a picture of everything but this doesn't have the shirt in frame because its being worn and the socks aren't in here either because *I'm* wearing them! :D And the fridge is wearing the Bowser magnet. :D

The Cost: $13.37/month plus $6 shipping

What You Get: A box full of unique, interesting and fun gamer geek l00t catered to a new theme each month with occasional awesome T-shirts included.  Worth at least $40!


DC Comics Harley Quinn and Joker Posters- These might be DH's favorite part of this Loot Crate.  I'm going to have them laminated or maybe framed because he wants to put them up in the game room.  They're pretty amazing even though they aren't my style.

Marvel Extreme Deadpool Socks- Okay, so I *love* socks!  I have Storm Trooper socks and R2-D2 socks and now I have Deadpool socks!  I totally took these and didn't care if DH wanted them or not!  They're man sized and too big but I don't care.

Exclusive Rocket Raccoon Comic-  This is the first comic for Rocket Raccoon from Guardians of the Galaxy.  It's exclusive because it's got Loot Crates added into the cover.  Art is by Skottie King and Cover by Dale Keown.  It's in plastic and on a board.  I can't decide if I want to open it or not...

Loot Crate Mini Mag Issue 12 Villians- Each Loot Crate comes with a magazine with interviews, silly puzzles and explanations for each of the items put in it.  I think they tried to go digital but Loot Crate fans nixed that idea.  I'm glad it's back in paper form because its fun to read.

Bowser Magnet-  I like this magnet and its already on the fridge!  He's the most hardcore boss in the Mushroom Kingdom and has killed me many times back in the day.

StarWars Key Chain in Darth Vader-  Well, you can't deny that Dark Vader is a pretty bad guy.  He definitely deserves to be in this Villians Loot Crate!

Loot Crate Button- The requisite pin for July.  I still wish they were magnets because they would be easier to display but I'm okay with this.  I'm pinning them all to my PAX lanyard.

Necessary Evil Super-Villians of DC Comics Documentary- Seventy years of DC Comics bad guys, narrated by Christopher Lee.  I haven't watched it yet but we will.

VERDICT: My husband thought this crate was fantastic.  He especially liked the posters, the T-shirt, the keychain and the Documentary.  I took the socks and I'm not sure what to do with the Rocket Raccoon comic.  I don't know much about comics.
One thing I like about Loot Crate is how eclectic it is.  There's no telling what you're gonna get.  It could be anything!  I wasn't expecting posters or a documentary!  And it makes my gamer husband happy.

SPOILER ALERT!

As for August, the new theme is HEROES! Yeah!!  I hope for Superman and Batman in there somewhere.  I wonder if there's a T-shirt!  There *will* be an Exclusive Funko POP Vinyl figurine especially made for Loot Crate!  It's also Loot Crates One Year Anniversary in August so you *know* its going to be good!

    1. Hopefully they will soon! They just added three new ones last week (which I think makes 7 countries they ship to) but I'm hoping they add more!
