Loot Corner: April Loot Crate, Loot Anime Review

May 11, 2017 | Posted by Adam Larck

Welcome back to Loot Corner. This month, we going to Investigate with Loot Crate, while Loot Anime deals with Humanity.

Like always, you can sign up for Loot Crate or Loot Anime by clicking here. While Loot Crate is normally $13.95 a month and Loot Anime is $24.95 a month, if you use that link you’ll save $5 your first subscription.

With that out of the way, let’s take a look at the newest crates.

Loot Crate this month wants you to put on your detective hat and get ready to Investigate.

The first item features the world’s greatest detective, Batman, with a nice mug. While the mug looks like a standard city skyline normally, putting some hot liquid into it will show the Bat Symbol and Joker’s laughter across the night sky.

Next is a new Q-Fig to join Deadpool, Hulk and Dr. Strange on your shelf. Now you can add Jessica Jones to the shelf, complete with her kicking down a wall to find the truth. While I think it would’ve been better to wait until her next appearance on Netflix, it’s still a nice figure anyway.

This month’s shirt will appease fans of Stranger Things, as it features Eleven with the Demogorgon in the background. Again, with Season 2 coming in the future, it seems like it would’ve been better to time it there. However, it does help fans keep the series in their minds while they wait.

Finally, to help with some puzzles that were included in this month’s magazine you have X-Files pencils. What makes them X-Files? The sayings on the side, of course. Sure, they may disappear after use, but at least they will help you question things along the way.

Overall, Nothing really overly wowed me this month like the Logan figure did last month. The Jessica Jones figure does look good next to the other figures I have, though, and Batman is a nice new piece on my desk, so overall it’s not a bad crate.

 

April Loot Anime – Humanity

For Attack on Titan fans, you’ll find a lot to love with the Humanity crate. For me, though, this was a miss.

Starting with the Titan items, we have a miniature Levi figure and a pouch and notepad set with the Survey Corps logo on them. I already have a few notebooks from past crates, and, even though I’ve only seen a few episodes of the series, I can think of a few better characters to highlight then Levi. Like I said, great for fans, but when there’s only four items, taking up half the crate with one series is a disappointment.

Away from these items, we have the first manga book for School-Live. School-Live centers on a school club that are the lone survivors of a zombie outbreak. However, they have no clue they’re the only ones left.

Finally, we have the Black Lagoon ammo case holding four coasters inside. This is probably the highlight of the box for me, as the coasters do look nice and are functional.

Overall, the Humanity crate does feature some bigger series this month, just none of them clicked with me. Hopefully, next month’s create doesn’t double up on one particular anime again. That way, there’s more options for items from new series.
