September's Loot Crate is Galactic

Loot Crate has really upped their game in the last three months. I was enjoying the subscription service before July, but if the theme was too specific, it meant I was getting products that didn't speak to me. For example, if a box was all about video games, that didn't make me feel excited. But now, broader themes mean they sample across mediums and franchises and the contents are better than ever. I feel like I get even more bang for my buck.

Before I get too far, a brief explanation of Loot Crate for those not in the know: Loot Crate is a geeky subscription service. You pay $13.37 plus shipping each month, and a box full of nerdy goodies arrives at your doorstep. The retail value of those items is usually around $30-$40, but you never know what you're going to get. It's like a mini-Christmas every month! Yay!

September's theme is "Galactic." That means items from all around the 'verse were game to be included, and they loaded the box with treasures. There are items from Star Trek, Alien, Firefly, and more. I drooled all over this one. On to the pictures:

The box in all it's glory!

A mystery vinyl figure from Funko exclusive to Loot Crate? Who will it be?

It's the one and only Malcom Reynolds. Can I marry a vinyl figure and will that make me our Mrs. Reynolds?

Exclusive Loot Crate Tribble from Quantum Mechanix. It's soft and cuddly, and I have to keep it away from my cats so they don't eat it and get a completely different kind of hairball.

A beautiful re-action figure from Funko that features the Alien from Alien. Though I would have rather received Ripley, this is a pretty awesome and detailed figure.

Digital codes for Dark Horse Comics' Halo Escalation, watermelon Pop Rocks, and a Star Wars retro arcade magnet.

Cool 27" long Han Solo in carbonite poster - it's the perfect size and shape for hanging on a door.

Fake Firefly money! Pretend you just robbed an Alliance bank with this stack of faux bills from Quantum Mechanix.

And look, Loot Crate even released a Firefly fan film to go with the Galactic theme:

Between the Tribble, the Alien Re-Action figure, and the stack of Firefly bank robbery money, the value of September's Loot Crate is already at $30. Not too shabby considering it only cost $20 with shipping. Want to sign up for Loot Crate so you can get October's box? Go to their website to get in on the action and use the code gwcloot to get $3 off! You can sign up for just a month to try it out and renew your subscription later or sign up for a few months and save.

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


  1. I only wish the poster was rolled as opposed to folded.

    1. Yeah, that would have been better!

  2. I love that little Mal figure! The more I see frm LootCrate, the more I want to get my own subscription...

    1. I think it's worth trying out for a month especially since the last four months have been particularly good.
