Welcome back to another Loot Crate Review. This time we’ll be talking about the March Loot Crate but first a brief explanation of what Loot Crate is for folks who are new to the site. Loot Crate is the monthly subscription gift box for geeks and gamers. It’s just like the various beauty boxes that are out there except it’s stuffed full of stuff that is relevant to geek culture. You sign up for a monthly fee (about $20 a month) and then wait for your stuff to come. Each month is different and it’s always a surprise. There’s typically 6 – 8 items in each Loot Crate.

Loot Crate Review – March 2013

The Loot Crate box always has a different unique theme every month and this month is no exception. For March the theme is Cosmos so think space related stuff like Star Wars, Star Trek and Dead Space. With that in mind lets take a look at what’s in the box. First up is a Funko vinyl Star Wars bobble head. There was an assortment of these and they were packaged randomly I got a Yoda. There were also C3P0, Boba Fett, Darth Vader and more. Next up were some “Art of Star Wars Comics” collectible post cards. There were about 100 different designs available and each Loot Crate came with two different ones. The next thing in the box as a Hexbug Nanobot Micro Robot. We finished off with a Loot Crate Labs Secret Code Wristband, a Loot Crate Labs Live Long and Prosper button and a Dead Space Wall Graphic.

Loot Crate Review – March 2013 – What I Liked

This month’s Loot Crate was another great collection of themed stuff. I am a huge Star Wars fan so getting a Star Wars bobblehead was pretty freaking awesome. I would have liked pretty much any of these but getting Yoda was pretty sweet. The Star Wars comic book are post cards were neat and will make great bookmarks or or desktop mini art. I’ve been an avid reader of Star Wars comics for years so getting these cards was pretty cool.

When I fist saw the Hex Bug Nano Bot I didn’t even know what it was. Opened it up and placed it on the floor. It started buzzing around all over the place pretty fast. Highly entertaining and my dogs loved chasing it too! The Secret Code wristband was cool and a throwback to a space themed video game called Galaga so once again they are hitting the theme mark with some subtly relevant items which I always think it quite clever. I LOVED the live long and prosper pin, because even most non-geeks know what’s up with that and it’s gets a smile when people see it. That Dead Space graphic was cool and fit right in to the space theme plus, zombies. All in all this months Loot Crate was loaded with fun stuff.

Loot Crate Review – March 2013 – What I Didn’t Like

It’s hard to find fault with the March Loot Crate to be completely honest. I’m not crazy about wristbands but the funny thing is that the code is well known among long time gamers and always gets a laugh or a comment when people see it. While I liked the little Star Wars art postcards a lot the Dead Space graphic was just ok. Don’t get me wrong, the art is great but I’m not really going to put that up somewhere in my house. Just remember that as with any surprise gift box your mileage may vary with Loot Crate but as a rule the items are pretty great overall.

Loot Crate Review – March 2013 – Final Thoughts

I LOVED the theme for the March Loot Crate and when I opened it and the Star Wars bobble head was revealed I was thrilled to get that. The art cards were awesome and the Nano Bot Hex Bug was a pleasant surprise. Loot Crate delivered on time and problem free and it was a treat to get home from work one day and find this stuff waiting for me. Overall I thought this months Loot Crate was pretty awesome and am glad I have continued to subscribe. If you’re looking for the perfect gift for someone who a little on the geeky side or is a gamer then I recommend getting them a subscription to Loot Crate!
