Loot Crate is the worldwide leader in fan subscription boxes. The company partners with industry leaders in entertainment, gaming, sports, and pop culture and delivers monthly themed crates. 

Loot Crate’s process is simple:

  • Pick a crate — You can choose by categories such as film and TV, gaming, limited edition, and pop culture.
  • Get exclusive items — Loot Crate fills your crate with collectibles, apparel, figurines, and more.
  • Unbox a surprise — Your crate is delivered to your home every month and filled with items that can’t be found anywhere else.

The Good

  • Exclusive Merchandise
  • Customizable Shipping Schedule
  • International Shipping
  • Active on Social Media

Exclusive Merchandise

Loot Crate’s greatest strength is its ability to get its hands on exclusive merchandise. While you might not know precisely what will be in your crate, you know it will be unique. 

Something else we like about Loot Crate is the fact that you can order a specifically themed crate or a more general one. For example, if you are a big Marvel fan and only want to receive exclusive Marvel merchandise, sign up for Loot Crate’s Marvel Gear + Goods crate. 

However, if you’re interested in all things pop culture, we suggest signing up for the Loot Crate. The Loot Crate changes themes every month, so you’ll continuously receive merchandise from various TV shows, movies, games, comics, and more. Listed below are some of the more specific fan crates that the company offers. 

Film and TV Gaming Limited Edition
  • J.K Rowling’s Wizarding World
  • Marvel Gear + Goods
  • Deadpool
  • Rick and Morty
  • WWE Slam
  • Hello Kitty
  • Crunchyroll
  • Destiny

  • The Elder Scrolls
  • WizKids
  • Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

The Bad

  • Crate Limitations
  • May Receive Items You Don’t Want

Crate Limitations

As mentioned previously, Loot Crate has a fairly unique shipping schedule. While this isn’t a bad thing, it does mean that you’ll need to be aware of the shipping schedule for your specific crate. 

For example, the Loot Anime crate is delivered every month. But the Destiny crate is only delivered every three months. 

This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but it might throw some people off if they’re expecting a crate every month, only to find out that their crate ships every three months. 

May Receive Items You Don’t Want

Part of the fun of Loot Crate is the fact that you don’t know what will be inside your crate when you receive it. However, this also means you might get some merchandise that you don’t particularly want. This can get even more frustrating when 90 percent of the box is filled with things you won’t want or use. Several reviewers mentioned that they simply sold or gave away the items they didn’t like, but this can be frustrating when you’re spending $30 monthly on a crate. 

Some customers have expressed that they want Loot Crate to start selling individual items. However, that doesn’t seem likely since Loot Crate’s whole premise is to surprise subscribers with mystery items.


The Bottom Line

Loot Crate is the perfect subscription box for geeks, nerds, gamers, fans, superfans, and anyone interested in pop culture. The company has a simple but heroic mission that we can all get behind: Unite the world through the shared celebration of fandom. We like that Loot Crate sends exclusive merchandise that you really can’t get anywhere else.

However, you’ll need to keep in mind that you might get some merchandise you don’t want or will use, but that’s the risk you take with ordering a mystery box. We also recommend double-checking when your crate is expected to ship as the company has a unique shipping schedule.

I love loot crate, it lets me release my inner nerd! I receive so many things that never let me down and it's so cheap. I have a few shelves with items and collectables from loot crate and my walls are decorated with so many amazing posters from shows and franchises that I love!

Loot Crate offers a unique surprise for special fandoms. I love ordering a loft crate and getting to open it up and see what surprises are in it. Very unique concept and the quality of the items I get are always great. Great gift for young ones or even fans of old nostalgic properties!

Lootcrate is just about the coolest subscription I have ever owned. They provide me with shirts, socks, etc. every month that are impossible to find in stores. I love the designs and they're just so nice to wear.

I thought this company filed for bankruptcy! The LootCrate exclusive items in the boxes were pretty cool! But it also included a lot of things that were not useful or even cool enough to display. A lot of it we ended up giving away fro free at s garage sale.

I used to subscribe to Loot Crate. You can get some super cool stuff, but for the most part it was just kind of random things I have no use for and end up giving away.
