Every Loot Crate box comes with a mag!

It also lists all the items in the box.

Our box transforms into this geeky cereal box: Cog Crispies!

I gave this to my kids to read over meals – they absolutely loved it.

Bwahahaha nanites.

Everything in the September 2017 box!

Loot Crate Loot Bot Pin

September’s Bonus Loot is a 3-month digital subscription to Servo magazine plus the Loot Pin unlocks the Ghost in the Shell digital comic.

This little guy is so cute. I’ve been bummed that the pins haven’t been licensed, but I do legit  like this one!

Blade Runner 2049 T-Shirt

Blade Runner returns with the sequel 2049! This shirt glows in the dark but.. it’s really small! Kinda weird, since their ladies’ shirts (this is a men’s size) are now sized properly.

IDW’s Star Trek: The New Generation Mirror Universe Comic: This comic came bagged.

Are you beside yourself with all things Trek? I am! I’m not so pumped about comics but Star Trek Discovery yessssss!

This issue is 100% Loot Crate exclusive, in-canon, and has Data’s Origin story for the mirror universe.

Neat, although I’m really not that into comics, even I read the whole thing, because Trek.

R2-D2 Incredibuild Model Kit ($12.10) Easily my favorite item in the box, but it’s not exclusive. Hmm.

There’s a contest to enter if you paint your model.

Along with the model a full little booklet detailed everything about R2. My 6 year old already stole this, but we are all excited to read it!

The balsa wood pieces and the instructions.

It took my husband a long time to build, but I’m just thankful it wasn’t the metal version. I can’t deal with those.

Tada!

Very intricate!

The box had some ideas to make it your own. If my kids wouldn’t flip out I’d do Deadpool r2d2.

ALIENS “Queen Takes Bishop” Mini Figure: The first in a new collab between Loot Crate & Phat Mojo. Apparently they produce a lot of blind bag items.

The figure comes disassembled.

And Queen takes Bishop! At least he can be reassembled (he’s an android, you know).

The figure is surprisingly detailed for its size – it’s only about 3″ tall.

It’s actually shockingly small, and somewhat flimsy. I thought quite frankly it was a disappointment, and I suggest that subscribers that feel the same way fill out the Looter Survey this month. My 6 year old loved it on the other hand, and he’ll probably score the glow in the dark shirt too.

Once again, the R2D2 build and the pin were my favorite items this month. And really the best thing about the build, for me anyways, is the book! The book is a complete 32 pages about R droids and R2D2 with all sorts of specs and factoids. This has to be one of my least favorite boxes in a while. That being said, nothing went unclaimed in our house either. It just seemed more comparable to boxes from two years ago than a box 2 months ago. One big plus – given our Lootpocalypse over the last week, I’d say that shipping times are improving – we even got Loot Wear subs in during the same month!

What did you think of this month’s Loot Crate?
