August's Loot Crate Is All About the Heroes

Remember how July's Loot Crate box was about the villains? This month they've changed it up to focus on the good guys. I'm loving the switch to the more generic themes, and I hope they stick with it. This route means a bigger sampling of franchises so that the odds of more subscribers liking something in the box are better. Better than non-gamers like me getting a box of gamer gear and not recognizing any of it.

The interior of August's box is decorated as was July's. It's made out to look like the inside of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' home. Cowabunga. Let's look at all the treasure:

The big ticket item this month is a Loot Crate exclusive Funko Pop! of Groot from Guardians of the Galaxy. Not just any Groot - part of him glows in the dark. There's also a Sonic the Hedgehog air freshener, Shwings shoe accessories, a KidRobot Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles toy - also glow in the dark, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle themed sunglasses, some digital loot, and a Deadpool magnet.

Groot wins the box for me, and even though I'm not a big enough Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle fan that I would buy toys, I  have to admit the Kidrobot Raphael is pretty adorable.

Loot Crate costs $13.37 plus $6 for shipping. I'd guess the retail value for August's box is close to $35. I'm estimating at least $15 for Groot. Heck, the regular Funko Pop! Groot is retailing for $25 in some places. Anyway, the point is that Loot Crate is a good deal. Sign up at their website and use the code gwcloot to get $3 off your subscription.

Full disclosure: This Loot Crate box was provided free of charge for review purposes. This did not affect my opinions.


  1. Did you know that the "rug" on the bottom of the box can be lifted up and is part of the couch. I was freaking out when I discovered this, loved this month's box!

    1. Ahh! I didn't know that. Thanks. :)

  2. After seeing the seper hero-filled "trailer" for this crate, I was greatly disappointed. Having never been a fan of the campy Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle, I was wishing I had saved my $13.37. While I love the Groot figure, the rest was all just not for me - especially as I did not get a Deadpool magnet. :(

  3. I thought this month's crate was pretty cool and I like the designs inside the box. I hope they keep doing more like this.
