Loot Crate is a monthly geek subscription box that often includes figurines, collectibles, and T-shirts. It costs $13.95 + $6 shipping per month, with discounts for longer subscriptions. Each month has a different theme. Every month, it comes in a black box with the Loot Crate logo that can be turned inside out and folded into something related to the theme. The size varies depending on what’s in the box. Each month, they send out a survey asking subscribers to rate each item and provide suggestions for future boxes. They also release digital content each month related to the theme, such as a mini-game, puzzle, or trivia.

This is a review of December’s Loot Crate.
Everything in this month’s Loot Crate. This month’s theme is Revolution. This month’s crate includes items from Assassin’s Creed, Firefly, Mr. Robot, and Colony.
Each month’s box can be turned into something related to the theme, usually by turning it inside out. This one turns into this building from Assassin’s Creed.
Each box includes a magazine that includes descriptions of all of the items, as well as interviews with the Loot Crate staff and other things.
Assassin’s Creed Pin + DLC – We’ve played a couple of Assassin’s Creed games. I like them and it’s cool to have a pin with their logo.
Enter the Animus with this pin featuring the emblem of the Assassin Brotherhood. (Licensed by Ubisoft, made by Loot Crate, Inc) This month’s DLC is a digital excerpt from the new Assassin’s Creed: Heresy novel.
Here’s the magazine opened to a random page.
Exclusive Assassin’s Creed Aguilar Funko Pop! – Unfortunately, this character is not from one of the Assassin’s Creed games I’ve played, so I’m not familiar with him. However, as many of you know I love Pops, and I also like that this one is “in action”. Plus it’s an exclusive Pop.
Aguilar (played by Michael Fassbender in the Assassin’s Creed film) fights against the oppressive Templars as an assassin in 15th century Spain and now he can fight against tyranny on your display shelf in the form of this EXCLUSIVE POP! Take a leap of faith and check out Assassin’s Creed in theaters starting December 21. (Licensed by Ubisoft, made by Funko)
Here he is on the edge of the building. Haystack not included.
Exclusive Firefly Independents Patch – I’ve never watched Firefly, but I’ve heard it’s good so I might decide to watch the new series. For now, this patch doesn’t mean too much to me though.
Show the world that you’re still flying when you apply this EXCLUSIVE patch – based on the original art files made by Firefly graphic designer Dylan Hay-Chapman – to your favorite brownish colored coat or bag! (Licensed by Fox, made by QMx)
The patch includes instructions for applying it.
Exclusive Mr. Robot FSociety T-Shirt – I’m not familiar with Mr. Robot, but I think it’s pretty cool because it looks like a Japanese noh mask. I don’t know if this is intentional, but the image is slightly tilted.
Hello, Looter. Join in the crusade to take down Evil Corp and the rest of the top 1% of the top 1% alongside your fellow vigilante hackers with this tee available exclusively to revolutionaries like you! (Licensed by NBCUniversal, made by Loot Crate, Inc)
Exclusive Figure Fantasy Hardcover Book – This is actually one of my favorite items on this box. It’s a very well-made hardcover book. It consists of photos of figurines, mostly characters from Star Wars and Batman, in mundane situations such as taking a selfie or using the bathroom. The collectors edition of this costs $100, and the regular edition is $23 on Amazon.
In this EXCLUSIVE hardcover Looter Edition, photographer Daniel Picard shows off Sideshow Collectibles figures, featuring some of the biggest names in pop culture, rebelling against expectations in scenarios ranging from the epic to the everyday. Includes a foreword by Simon Pegg and an afterword by Kevin Smith. (Made by Insight Editions)
One page of the book.
They included this $25 promo card for Sideshow.com, the source of the figures in the book. Most of their figures are in the triple-digit range, but some books and T-shirts are close to $25 if you want to use this without spending too much.
Overall, this is a good box from Loot Crate in terms of the categories and quality of items. However, this is not the crate I would have expected for a “Revolution” theme.
