LootCrate – August 2014 Unboxing and Review

Last year we met up with LootCrate CEO & Co-Founder Matt Arevalo to talk about the subscription box service and we were instantly hooked.  I’ve been a subscriber & fan since that discussion and have been sharing photos and information each month on our Instagram page.

If you call yourself a nerd or geek and you are not already familiar with LootCrate, then you’re gonna want to listen up.  For under $20 a month, they deliver a box of Geek and Gamer gear valued at over $40.  Shirts, stickers, collectibles from companies like kidrobot & Funko, and random fun stuff like sunglasses & socks.  All the gear is nerd/geek themed and every month is like Christmas.  You just can’t wait to find out what is inside.


This month was probably the most exciting LootCrate box for me so far.  We knew in advance that the August box, themed Heroes, would contain an exclusive Funko Pop!, but we weren’t sure what it would be.  Then, word started to trickle out across the web….. Groot!  But what else would be inside?

What’s in the BOX?!!
