Loot Crate Unboxing Video – June 2016 Dystopia Theme

We focus on Apple and apps, but sometimes that connection extends to physical goods. Loot Crate is a monthly subscription service that delivers a $20 box of geek & gamer gear with an MSRP of around $45. Past crates have featured some well known connections to iOS, and the items in general have an appeal to fans of technology and apps. The June 2016 Loot Crate theme is Dystopia with inspiration from Terminator, Fallout, The Matrix, and more. Here is our Loot Crate unboxing video for this month.

Loot Crate ($20/Recurring)

The June 2016 Loot Crate nails the theme, and covers each entertainment property that was teased. The past few months have emphasized fewer high quality items, but the June 2016 box goes back to the 2015 style of more items. The big item of the month is usually the t-shirt, and June offers a great print of Robocop. You don’t have the be a Robocop fan to appreciate the print. Now, instead of a Funko Pop figure, this month’s Loot Crate includes a Funko Dorbz. Dorbz is the newer, smaller, and less popular line of vinyl figures, and it instantly makes you think of a Pop instead. With that said, the Fallout Power Armor Dorbz really looks good, but it would be nice to have an exclusive, instead of a common.

Beyond the two big ticket items, there are three smaller items that definitely have appeal. The metal plate print for Terminator 2 might be my favorite item of the month, and it’s definitely worth hanging up. The metal aspect nails the Terminator theme, and there’s no fluff in the print beyond the skull. The Matrix puzzle is only 300 pieces, and the scene is from the later films, rather than the original. The puzzle is still worth putting together. Finally, there’s a blank key with a Bioshock Infinite theme. It doesn’t offer the most of the theme, but could be used daily.

The June 2016 Loot Crate offers good value, and a wide range of themed products. There could have been a few alterations to improve the overall box, but it’s definitely one of Loot Crate’s better efforts.
