Unboxing the September 2016 LOOT CRATE – Speed

Hi-Def Ninja’s reviews live on. Our 3-month review has just turned 6 with the September Loot Crate, so let’s do an unboxing!

Each month, Loot Crate curates a box of nerdy goodness for their subscribers with unique items that feature a unique theme for that month. For September, the theme is Speed and features products from GONE IN 60 SECONDS, BATTLESTAR GALACTICA, ARROW, IRON MAN, and BATMAN.

GONE IN 60 SECONDS “Eleanor” Die-Cast Car (Greenlight Collectibles)         

1967 Shelby Ford Mustang GT500 as featured in the Nic Cage hit, this Loot Crate Exclusive is part of Greenlight Collectibles’ “Hollywood Series 7” line. Die-Cast Metal Body, Rubber Wheels, and Articulated Doors and Hood goodness for all those miniature car collectors.

Another Loot Crate exclusive, this vinyl replica ship is the epitome of fast, being the fastest of the raiders. Highly detailed and probably a bit faster than Eleanor…

With a 50-50 shot between a FLASH hood ornament and an ARROW hood ornament, my Loot Crate came with a shiny ARROW figure hood ornament. Celebrating his 75th anniversary in November, Oliver Queen may not initially be associated with speed, but ARROW is where THE FLASH was first introduced, and I hear Oliver has an assortment of very fast vehicles, though I would still put my money on “Scar” being a drop faster. Made of hard plastic with a metal look, the magnet will let you display this figure wherever you choose. *Note: the magnet may not adhere to all car hoods*

He’s a Genius, billionaire, playboy, philanthropist, and he owns a Formula One car. Show your pride for all things Team Stark with this MARVEL-designed tee exclusively for Loot Crate.

dsc02945BATMAN Batwing Keychain (Quantum Mechanix)

QMX continues to slay it with their offerings, this time with a stealth black replica of the Batwing as featured in the 1989 BATMAN movie. The QMX Caliber Metalworks is meticulously detailed, comes in really nice packaging and is a Loot Crate Exclusive.

Loot Year Pin, but along with the pin is a download code for Velocity by Image Comics. Redeem the code at comiXology for Pilot Season: Velocity #1 and Velocity #1-4.

dsc02911Final thoughts on the September LOOT CRATE:
Though it did not come in my box, there has to be a SPEED-related item in the Speed September theme Loot Crate. That said, speed was certainly represented in the September box. I do think they should have stuck with the FLASH ornament for everyone, but the ARROW hood ornament is still welcome.


Mike’s favorite item: BATMAN Batwing Keychain

I mean, where does he get those wonderful toys?!
