Loot Corner: March Loot Crate, Loot Anime Review

April 12, 2017 | Posted by Adam Larck

Welcome back to Loot Corner. This month, we get Primal with Loot Crate, while Loot Anime goes to the Future.

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.


March Loot Crate – Primal

With the release of Logan, Loot Crate decided to honor a few primal figures from pop culture.

Tying in with Logan is a Metals Die Cast Wolverine figure. The figure could be either a regular Logan the Old Man Logan variant or the adamantium variant, showing him in pure metal. I got the final variant, and have to say I really enjoy looking at it on the shelf.

For this month’s shirt, we go to Overwatch for a Winston spray shirt. It’s definitely a fitting shirt, showing off the “Primal Rage” spray. Plus, it’s quite comfy as well.

Switching to the movies, we have a bottle opener in the shape of a Predator head. While it’s not the first bottle opener we’ve had in a while, I guess some can never have enough bottle openers in the house. A fun trinket if you’re a fan of the series to keep nearby.

Finally, there’s the Jurassic World sign. I’m not a huge sign person to hang these type of signs around the house, but for Jurassic fans, it can add a nice touch to a movie room, or even to a kid’s play set if they’re into dinosaurs.

Overall, Primal had some great pieces this month, with the standout definitely being the Metals figure. I also liked the idea of the Overwatch spray shirt, something I hope they revisit again in the future (maybe a Reaper spray for Halloween?).


March Loot Anime – Future

The Future was definitely chosen to try and tie in with the motion picture release of Ghost in the Shell. It’s just too bad the movie seems to be a disappointment so far. Anyway, let’s get into the crate!

The shirt focuses on Motoko Kusanagi from the series, complete with the Japanese name: Mobile Armored Riot Police: Arise. It’s a nicely designed shirt, one that fans of the original anime will enjoy having.

For the manga this month, we have Clockwork Planet, It’s from the creator of No Game, No Life, and features a planet running on clockwork, and focuses on a mechanic who has an automaton crash into his life.

Finally, we end with a pair of computer accessories. From the anime Kiznaiver is a nice quality mousepad. For me, it came just in time, as my old one was in dire need of replacement. Then, from Psycho-Pass we have a 2GB flash drive. For an added touch, it’s even shaped like the firearm from the series. Pulling apart the barrel reveals the drive inside.

I was surprised by the computer gear, but really enjoyed the ideas, especially with the future theme. Loot Anime did a great job of getting away from the collectible trinkets with little use, and giving solid quality items that are useful.
