July 2015 Loot Crate - Heroes 2 *SPOILERS*

Here's my review of this month's Loot Crate (or is it LootCrate? I see it both ways). If you don't know, Loot Crate mails you a box of fun geekness each month for about twenty bucks. New this month was some "level ups" you can order. One of them is an extra wearable for about $15 more. I missed the deadline for ordering this month, but I will get one next month and report accordingly.

So with out further ado, let's look at this months crate: Heroes 2


My first impression was that this months crate was slow to arrive. I received an email stating the box should arrive "Your package should arrive between the 20th-25th" but looking at the FedEx tracking shows that the box did not arrive at the first FedEx facility until the 24th. So, while everyone else was celebrating, I had to wait unit the 30th to get my box. Loot Crate's email said I should let them know if I did not receive it by the 28th, but I did not because I could see through FedEx it was on its way. For reference, Last month my box came in on the 20th. Here's the photo of the contents:


Here's what we got, folks:


  • Wonder Woman Poster (DC has been doing a series of Super Women in old-timey themed art) - I will not use this but I appreciated that the poster came rolled nicely in a box and not folded.
  • A Ledgend of Zelda Sweatband (wrist) - It's nice quality, but I won't use it. My kids seemed uninterested in paying with it for more than 10 seconds. I will likely give it to my brother, but he has a full-on Link Cosplay outfit, so he'll either love it or it will be beneath him.
  • Batman Multi-Tool Keychaiun - This looks awesome and feels well made. I have a multi-tool on my key chain already, so I just replaced it with this. There's a good chance I only use it for a couple months due to it's size, but I do like it.
  • League of Regrettable Superheros hard back book - This is my favorite item in the box this month and it went straight on my sci fi book shelf.
  • Batman Figure - This is kinda cool. It is the oldschool, TV, Batman. You can't tell in the photo, but there is a little speech bubble that you can write on with a dry erase marker.
  • Vulcan Gang Sign Air Freshener - I already have this in my car. I'm sure this was one of the cheaper items to include, but I like it.
  • Brawlhalla - This is a code for a game on Steam and some extras. I will definitely load this on my Steam account. If I played games anymore, it would be nice, but I tend to collect games on Steam more than play them.
Final thoughts:

All in all, I can't say I'm disappointed, but I'm also not overwhelmed. Overall, it's a good create, but for my personal interested, it wasn't overflowing with goodness. I'd put the value to me at just about what I paid for it, but not more. For others, I'm sure this crate would be awesomeness cubed.

I am looking forward to getting the wearable upgrade next month and seeing what it is all about.
