Unboxing the May 2017 LOOT CRATE – GUARDIANS

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 May, the theme is Guardians, featuring products from THE GOONIES, STAR WARS, GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY, VOL. 2, DESTINY, and AVATAR

Time to save the galaxy again a**holes. Another Quantum Mechanix figure with superb detailing featuring Rocket with his guns with smoke and explosives and Baby Groot graces this crate. This may be a timed edition but looters will get their mitts on them first.

DSC07329Final thoughts on the May LOOT CRATE:

For me this was one of the few loots to miss the mark. While I love Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 and Star Wars the box felt a bit stale. Not being a Destiny or Avatar fan and with Goonies close to 30 years old I could see where other may feel the same way. That said the QMx Q-Fig is still at the top of the game in terms of items and is still worth the price of the box alone. Considering the last two crates have probably been my favorites recently I can see why I may be a bit harder on this months items.


Mike’s favorite item: GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY, VOL. 2 Rocket and Groot Q-Fig

The poses, with the smoke coming out of Rocket’s gun easily make this a winning figure and the perfect addition to your Q-Fig collection.
