I first heard about this brilliant phenomenon on two of my favourite blogs - Dainty and Ivory and The Sparkly Panda - and if you don't know what LootCrate don't worry, neither did I when I first read about it! Basically it is a monthly subscription box filled with geeky-goodies worth more than the cost to subscribe. Based in the United States, LootCrate deliver to many countries across the world (including the UK of course) and each month follows a 'theme'.
July's theme sold me finally as I had been mm-ing and ah-ing about this for months now - but the promise of VILLAINS, with an exclusive t-shirt and a LootCrate only comic book up for grabs, how could I say no.
LootCrate are huge on social media, and the box encourages you to document your 'opening of your loot' - but being my first I was too darned excited to do that! Next time, promise (as of course I will carry on with this splendid box!).
This month's loot included - a 'Joki' t-shirt (mash-up of Batman and Thor villains - perfect); a pair of Deadpool socks; a Bowzer magnet; a Darth Vader key ring (SCORE); a DVD documentary on the neccesity of evil in stories (a documentary for goodness sake, that's a brilliant idea!!); a poster of Harley Quinn and the Joke; exclusive Marvel Rocket Raccoon comic.
And let's not forget the custom box which made me chuckle a lot and caused not a few funny looks from B - though of course I saw the jealousy in his eyes too as the t-shirt won't fit him, mua ha ha.
I am THOROUGHLY impressed with LootCrate and simply cannot wait for next month's theme, the only theme that could beat villains - HEROES. If you are interested in LootCrate and haven't already subscribed why not head on over to their website and use the code 'HEROES' for a 10% discount on your first box! There are rumours of an exclusive POP! figure in August's box...
Do you get LootCrate? Were you happy too with the loot this month? :)
