My daughter, who is an intense gamer, found the connections to be obvious without looking at the box. She’s super pumped about collecting all the figures.

They use little pegs to insert into the stand – the only bummer is that you cannot move their orientation.

Mister Chief Carabiner Plush: This is a cool little item – Mister Chief is the unofficial mascot of Halo and I don’t think there’s ever been ANY official Mr. Chief merch ever. Great bag clip!

And here’s everything that has to happen for you to become a member of the team. This is neat – and really something that I had expected from Loot Gaming!

Spartan-IV Initiation Pullover: This is a great hoodie t-shirt – really high quality with an excellent design, kangaroo front.

Alas, I got it in an XS for my little gamer girl, but I think it’s too big for her. I wistfully and feverishly wished I’d just gotten it in my size. Halo Legendary Crate August - September 2016 (27)

UNSC Utility Satchel: A great one strap backpack with loads of potential (and I think my husband’s new dad bag!).

There’s a tablet compartment in the back along with a zip pocket.Halo Legendary Crate August - September 2016 (29)

And several zip pockets in the front, a million loops (even though I am never quite sure what to use them for), and most importantly – bag charm clips. The only thing that would have improved this bag is a headphone port. It’s one of the best pieces of gear we’ve ever gotten from a geek box – high quality and versatile. (Really, we get a ton of bags and this is one of the best!).

Be sure to scroll down to the comments to see more info on this type of bag. Thanks B. Curtis!

Out of all the recent Loot Crate launches, this one has been my favorite. They nailed this B to the wall! It has awesome gear, an awesome wearable, an awesome collectible, loads of free exclusive content for subscribers, and something to make you feel that you’re really part of the HALO universe. I do have to note that the pin was for the founder’s crate and I’m not sure that subsequent crates will have a pin (or if they do, they may not be the same quality). I think a patch would be an great followup – especially if it’s velcroed to go on the bag.

    For your information, on the satchel, when you say “a million loops (even though I am never quite sure what to use them for)”, those look like MOLLE webbing to me. In essence, it’s standardized “loops” designed to accept MOLLE attachments (various pouches, etc.) allowing you to customize your gear somewhat. In your favorite search engine (or on the site of a certain large online retailer named after a large river that starts with “A” and ends with “mazon”), do a search for “MOLLE sling pack” and “MOLLE pouches”. That should be enlightening. I’ve been using a slightly larger sling pack with MOLLE pouches for a couple years now. The pouches allow me to access things like charger cords, adapters, pens–even two-way radios–without having to dig through my pack. And if nothing else, they’re handy for tucking things like flashlights and pens into.

      thank you so much for the info! i will update the post with some details. the thing is that these loops find their way all over the place, including my kids’ pottery barn backpacks. i spent a good chunk of time during breakfast existentially pondering backpack loops/straps/clips, so i thank you!

        Glad I could help. I actually blogged a little bit about MOLLE and EDCs a year ago. Not trying to promote the blog or anything, but this might also be helpful as I pretty much learned it from scratch (and through trial and error):

        Since I wrote that, I’ve switched over to using the Red Rock Rambler sling pack as my everyday bag (with a few MOLLE attachments), and it’s been perfect for my job.

          it’s totally great and super demystifying!
