Last month Loot Crate & 20th Century Fox released the ALIENS 30th Anniversary Crate – now sold out! The box contained 5 exclusive ALIENS items including a shirt, art, collectibles, comic, and figure, promising a $90 value for $55.
Awww, I forgot a photo when you open the front flap. It was a little creepy – who knew what you were going to get – xenomorph secretions?! Actually I was a little too excited to turn the box inside out.
The box turns into an Aliens APC, and it even had add-on cardboard pieces to make the part on the top!
Top Secret Confidential Weyland-Yutani Corp file!
The file is printed right on the jacket and I see some alien goo!
Here’s all the art from the box.
This thing is big, bad, and ugly (in a wonderful way).
He’s super fierce, loaded up, and ready to glow.
The detail is incredible. I didn’t see any accessories for his hands. The Titans figs normally come with something to hold, but not always.
The eggs charged up under my lights in their crate, so they’re only glowing at the top here. You can see how intense this glow in the dark is. It’s awesome.
Dark Horse ALIENS 30th Anniversary Hardcover Edition: A hardcover reissue of the original Dark Horse Aliens series by Verheiden & with art by Nelson.
It’s beautiful! The back describes where this fits into the canon (it no longer does, but just think of it like a regular comic series – that there can be a lot of iterations!).
The edges are gilt in vibrant metallic blue.
It’s a beautiful edition!
Bug Stomper Shirt: Is this going to be a stand-up fight, sir, or another bug hunt? Great shirt with art from the Sulaco’s gunship!
Alien LV-426 Cage-Free Eggs (with 4 eggs and 2 facehuggers!) A six pack of these eggs goes for about $29 and there are 4 eggs in here but they’re glow in the dark so I think it’s about the same value.
The egg themselves have a fairly long shelf life–about six more years! The inside lid is really funny and with broken, cracked, or open eggs discard and run far, far away!
They’re flat on the bottom so you can display them anywhere.
The fingernails really creep me out.
ALIENS Metal Print: This is a cool metal print with stand, although I wish it also had a way to hang it up easily (I’ll just use some 3M tape or something?). I love the dripping slime! As always, I wish it was a bit larger, but it should fit in with our planned gallery wall (of all geek stuff).
I never save a box (except for the fancy ladies’ special edition boxes that look like they were made to purchase for storage purposes). But for some reason I saved this one!
I couldn’t help getting out Jr and playing house!
This box was one big score for me – I think it absolutely had the promised $90 value. It really set the bar for future limited edition boxes from Loot Crate – 100% exclusive and bigger (well, except for the tin print) and better than the normal edition items – if they even exist!
What did you think of the Limited edition ALIENS box from Loot Crate? It’s really hard for me to pick a favorite –I can’t decide between the Titans xenomorph and the eggs!
While we’re here – don’t forget to check out the details on the newest limited edition box just announced – Loot Crate’s GHOSTBUSTERS box!
