Loot Crate, like Nerd Block, is a monthly subscription service. For $13.37 per month (get it? 1337. INTERNET JOKES!) plus $6 shipping (with three and six month plans as well to save a little money) you receive a box filled with a number of themed “geek and gamer” items supposedly retailing for over $40. Shirts CAN be included, but aren’t necessarily included every month. When they are, the print is exclusive to Loot Crate and can be found nowhere else. Loot Crate also includes a collectible pin and book detailing the theme. The book also has articles and interviews related to the theme as well. Each month carries a specific theme that usually matches something happening in pop culture. For instance, one month was “Titans” dedicated to items based on Attack on Titan and Titanfall. When the Xbox One and PS4 were releasing, the box was “Console Wars.” It’s actually pretty neat. Like Nerd Block, Loot Crate selects one subscriber to receive the “Mega Crate” containing over $750 worth of prizes. While you never really know what’s inside, the franchises are usually easy to guess based on the theme and hints dropped by the Loot Crate crew.
