So it’s been a while since I did a subscription box review. Thruthfully I was very busy and by the time I’d remember to write it we were in a new month and awaiting new deliveries. But I’m going to try to get back into the swing of writing these again so let’s discuss the Loot Crate for November 2016 themed Magical.
As always here’s my unboxing video first:
Now let’s go through each item one by one a bit deeper.
First the shirt. This is from the new movie Fantastic Beasts which I literally know nothing about besides it being a prequel to Harry Potter. So basically this shirt is lost on me until I see the movie once it his cable as I’m not a huge Harry Potter fan. I’m also not a fan of the design here. Too many words. Most people see shirts you’re wearing at a glance so it’s unlikely it’d get recognized in public. It’s a nice design regarding colors but too many words. Approximate value is $15.
As I said in the video, I’m not a Q-Fig fan because they mostly look like they were drawn by children. But this Doctor Strange one is done well. It’s animated looking but not overly animated where it looks cartoonish. It almost looks right out of the comics. Definitely a well molded figure. Approximate value is $15.
This Game of Thrones journal isn’t much to write home about, if you’ll pardon the pun. While it’s well made, hardcover with string band to keep it closed and keep your place, it’s not much use in a technological hungry culture. Everyone, myself included, keeps their notes in their smartphones. Sure it’s great to have hard copy in a journal like this but no ones got time for that nowadays. Approximate value is $10.
Seems like every subscription box is using comic books as an item again, which is good as it should get people reading again. Well people with time to do so anyways. This exclusive puts Big Trouble in Little China and Escape From New York into one story. Both great movies from the 80s. Do yourself a favor and go watch them if you haven’t seen them or if it’s been a while. I don’t have much time to read comics lately but I’m sure they do both movies justice. Approximate value is $7.
As always last is the LootPin. This one from Elder Scrolls which I don’t play. But that said I like the circling snake design. Definitely different and will stand out. Approximate value is $5.
While the November 2016 Magical theme from Loot Crate didn’t make me want to fly away in joy it did improve upon recent months of disappointment. They more then met there guaranteed value this month as I put an approximate value of $52 on this months delivery.
