June 2018 LootCrate


COLOSSAL Jurassic Park and Godzilla Themed Lootcrate

During the height of all the Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom hype, I came across Lootcrate. For those that have never heard of Lootcrate, it’s a mystery box that comes every month (or however often you choose) with a different theme. There are different types and sizes of loot crates. Some just for clothes, and some just for Star Trek for example. The standard LootCrate theme for June 2018 was Colossal, which included dinosaur references Jurassic Park and Godzilla. It also included Ghostbusters and The Hulk. Lootcrates $19.99 plus $5 shipping, and come to you in a small little black box. You can usually get a discount on one too. They hold regular sales, and previous customers have a referral link that gives $5, and gives them $5. Mine is at the bottom if Loot Crate ends up looking like something you’d like to try.

Jurassic Park T-Shirt

I’m on the fence about the shirt. I love the base blue color and the scene idea, I’m just not sold on the character art style. It’s a personal choice, but I think most people will find it acceptable anyway. Especially given the sexy Malcom (ironically shirtless) which is all the rage in Funkopop form. The shirt isn’t my style, but it’s a shirt to wear around the house at least. I actually don’t own a Jurassic franchise shirt at all, so this is my first.

Godzilla Plushie

This was my definitely my favorite item in the box. I’m a big fan of the King of the Monsters! I’m also totally on the Godzilla is a dinosaur bandwagon. This particular shade of green though seems like an extremely odd choice. I’ve never seen such a pale green Godzilla. The camera actually did catch the right color here. I wish this little plush guy was a darker green, but it’s still  nice. Unfortunately for me, my wife immediately claimed it. Unfortunately for her, I know a great hiding place.

Jurassic Park Dilophosaurus Pin

Despite getting cheated in the movie, the dilophosaurus pin iin this Loot Crate is perfect! It’s slightly bigger than a quarter, and even though the picture makes the yellow look a little pale, it’s actually a nice rich yellow color there on the frill. Sorry for the bad picture(s), but the pin really does look great. My second favorite item in the crate.

Ghostbusters Backpack & Hulk

The Ghostbusters bag has a handle on either side, making it a backpack. It’s a pretty simple canvas/laundry bag. The Hulk thing, I’m not sure exactly what it is? I managed to get great shots of it though, as it’s one of those things that changes depending on the direction you look at it from. Pretty much a display piece I guess. Not a Hulk fan.

Final Thoughts on Colossal LootCrate 2018

Overall I think the Jurassic Park shirt, the Godzilla plush, and the dilo pin would make it worthwhile alone. A little something for everyone. The Ghostbusters pack is nice, but I don’t know WTF I’m going to do with this Hulk oversized postcard thing. Lootcrates offer unique items you can’t get anywhere else, so there’s a little bit of an exclusive factor packed into them. Not to mention the convenience of having it delivered to your door, no shopping required. If you’re interested in trying out a Loot Crate, you can save yourself $5 and save me $5 too by using my Loot Crate referral link. I’d probably try it again for the right theme. At the very least, we know there’s going to be another dinosaur crazy June in 2021!
