Loot Crate‘s theme for September is INVADERS! Loot Crate is the original nerd subscription box for geeks & gamers. Every month you’ll get awesome, mostly exclusive geeky pop culture items curated around a theme for $21.99 per month, shipped.
The box design looks out of this world.
It gives us a glimpse of what’s up with Cryo labs!
Included is an information card which lists all the items in the box, noting any variants you might get.
And at the back of the info card, there’s something to be excited about from comiXology!
Everything in the September 2018 box!
Alien Facehugger Pin. The design is based from the parasitoid form of the Xenomorph XX121 species. Be careful with this Facehugger as it may spit acid on you and make you its host…
It looks creepy. This might hold as strong as the real one, and that’s actually good news! Even though the design is sort of disgustingly realistic, I like that they went in that direction for this pin!
Venom T-Shirt. I love how they play with all the colors and prints on this shirt. It may look like abstract art but you can actually make out the word Venom, and the character itself!
Black shirts really rock, as they emphasize and make designs look like they’re glowing! This is a great loot in anticipation of the film. I might wear it in the cinemas when we go watch the movie!
And let me point out… we actually got this BEFORE the premier!
X-Files Hard Cover Journal. One of the longest-running TV shows, X-Files sure made us aware of the “Invaders” that might just be lurking around and may be riding the Unidentified Flying Object, as shown on this journal cover. And what’s written in front of the journal is what I want to feel about it…
I want to believe.
The journal has the pages stapled. It’s also blank, so it means that I can freely write whatever in it. Like my sketches of chupacabra.
Predator Jungle Camo Bandana. Wearing a bandana is one way to accessorize, and at the same time, be ready if any situation arises. This one features a camouflage design!
Looking closer, you can see the Predator blending in!
Alien Next Door Artist Series Figure. Another Alien-related item in the box is this figure that was inspired by the book Alien Next Door.
This figure version is approved by Joey Spiotto, the artist and illustrator responsible for the book art.
The box contains 2 easy-to-build parts: the figure itself and its base.
Here, we can see the Alien taking his pet for a walk.
It really takes away the impression that the creature is scary and dangerous, look at how he walks his pet along the neighborhood!
I also love how the base made it look like they’re walking around the neighborhood, they even included a fire hydrant and facehugger is appropriately lifting his leg. And I also chuckled when I saw that aside from walking his pet, the Alien is also busy checking out his phone!
I don’t really mind that this month’s Loot Crate totally “invaded” our home! I love how they made it like a tribute to shows or films that feature the foreign creatures, and also provided “out of this world” items. The figure is a sure hit! I love how it depicts the Alien as a friendly neighbor, instead of a monster. The shirt is also a good one! The design is so stunning, and the choice for its overall color is simply perfect to emphasize the design. I love it! The rest of the items shows the theme really well!
Plus (drumroll..) this box came on time! With a couple of exceptions Loot Crate has its shipping schedule back on track for most all of its subscriptions!
