So my 3 month subscription was supposed to run out last month, but someone signed up under my link and I received $5 credit to my account. I decided to renew for another 3 months and see how it goes lol. They are getting pretty popular now so I can only expect some great things to come. This months crate had the theme of "DOCTOR" with it so I was interested to see what it could be about :P  Anyway onto the items!

 

Item #1

 

This is a t-shirt that has the phone booth from Doctor Who (TARDIS) and then it is transforming into a Transformer.

Item #2

 

Mega Man Air Freshener. Mega Man was created by Doctor Light.

Item #3

 

Caffeinated Brain Bits. A small candy goodie they usually like to throw in

Item #4

 

If any of you have seen Austin Powers you will remember Dr. Evil receiving sharks with laser beams on their head from his son. This is a drink holder displaying on one side the shark with a laser beam and on the other side it has the lootcrate logo.

Item #6

 

Is another wall sticker from walls360. This is of Tetris pieces that make up a heart :P

I've never seen Doctor Who so I can't really appreciate the t-shirt fully, but I am glad they have it turning into a transformer at least!! Makes it cooler :P

 

Overall I thought it was a pretty solid crate. I'll give it 7.5/10

 

 

 

 

Oh they also came out with a sweet design for their boxes. I thought they were neat!

At this point in time I am not going to sell anything.  Maybe I'll think about it one day.

 

Instead I ended up doing this with all my items :P

Wellllll another month has gone by... you know what that means! Another lootcrate box! :D   I still get excited to get this box in the mail every month :)

 

This months theme for the crate was COSMOS so I had a few ideas about what might be in there. Anyways here it is.

 

First item was a star trek live long and prosper pin. Who could have items dealing with space and not have a star trek reference :P

Second item was a pair of Star Wars Collectible postcards  that feature art from the comic book series.

Third item was a lootcrate wristband with the secret contra/gradius code.

Fourth item was a Hexbug nano Micro Robot. Your turn it on and it scoots across a flat surface like a bug. Pretty Neat!

Fifth item was yet another wall sticker from Walls360 of the Dead Space video game :) I love these wall stickers!

Good news to my fellow Canadians Loot Crate has expanded to Canada! Unfortunately it is pretty expensive, so probably not worth the extra $10 compared to US :(

On another note I received my 6th box the other day!

 

The theme of this months crate was TOKEN. So it had to do with Arcade type stuff.

 

 

First is a Mario Kart inspired sports carry bag!

#2: It was a Kidrobot mystery box that contained 1 of 15 or so variations of a streetfighter character. I got a blue colored dhalsim figure. Pretty neat :D

#3: Arcade themed candy

#4: A tin collectible of space invaders arcade game. There was candy inside of it.

#5: Was another mystery type package from Kidrobot. It was a random keychain that could have had different characters on it. I got Dhalsim again vs E. Honda. They also threw in an arcade ticket for the heck of it lol

Everything besides the ticket and the hamburger candy thing were pretty neat, but I understand they were trying to follow a theme so its all good.

 

As far as value goes the keychain was worth 4.95 and the mini street fighter figure was with 9.95. Add in about $5 in shipping and that's $20 right there. I love the carry bag no idea how much that costs.
