Unboxing the December 2016 LOOT CRATE – Revolution

Remember, Remember the fifth of November (borrowed from V for Vendetta)

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 December, the theme is Revolution, featuring products from FIREFLY, MR. ROBOT, FIGURE FANTASY, AND ASSASSIN’S CREED.

FIREFLY Independents Patch (QMx)

Stepping away from including figures LOOT CRATE had Quantum Mechanix  add a patch from everyone’s favorite space cowboy drama FIREFLY. The patch is based on the original art files and is perfect for all you browncoats out there. CAP!

Photographer Daniel Picard shows off Sideshow Collectible Figures in various scenarios from epic to mundane and includes a forward by Simon Pegg and afterword by Kevin Smith. This is a very well laid out book and Insight Edition who worked with Mondo on the Art of Jock book as well as many other special editions has done a very nice job here as well.

dsc03962Final thoughts on the Dcember LOOT CRATE:

Not quite as strong as the October Horror box and not quite as much up my alley as the November Fantasy box; this month’s LOOT CRATE was well put together, though I would have liked to have seen some more variety as well as something from V for Vendetta or even Hunger Games could have fit in. The Funko Pop is very nice and the art book though are top notch and either one is easily worth the price of the box


Mike’s favorite item: FIGURE FANTASY Hardcover Book

What can I say I enjoy art books a lot!
