November 2015 Loot Crate - Combat

Choose your weapon, warrior! November's Loot Crate theme is COMBAT!

Disclaimer: Loot Crate provides these goodies in exchange for promotion and review.

The cover of this month's mag has characters from each of the represented franchises ready to make their stand. We've got Street Fighter's Ryu, Katniss (on the van) from the Hunger Games, a Vault Dweller from Fallout, Shredder from TMNT, and a sniper that's probably from a Blizzard video game.

Articles include epic video game rivalries, a look at why "Kids Vs Kids" is a popular theme, and an interview with WWE announcer/commentator Kyle Edwards.

First up is a pair of rad Shredder sunglasses. Perfect to keep the sun out of your eyes while fighting off kung-fu reptiles! Along with a prop replica of Katniss' Mockingjay pin.

Unlike previous exclusive comics, this one isn't just a different cover. It's a completely original comic crossover between Street Fighter and the Loot Crate offices. I haven't opened it yet but it sounds like it could be a fun read.

Next is a blind box figure series called Cute But Deadly, based on characters from different Blizzard video games. This is Arthas and while he's one of the more common figures (odds of getting him are 5:36) I think he's the best looking one by far. The figure is about 3 inches tall and they crammed a lot of details into it. Just check out all the skulls on his armor!

The Crate also has a sheet of Cute But Deadly magnets featuring more of the characters from the blind box set.

And finally is a Vault Boy bobblehead! This particular pose is exclusive to Loot Crate. Click on the pic to see a larger version and read the fine print on the box. I haven't played Fallout since the original but I'm especially eager to check out the latest games because it takes place in New England!

Here's Vault Boy standing in the wasteland that is the interior of the Crate.

I have mixed feelings on this Crate. While I it was a good assortment with some cool items,  I don't have particular love for most of the franchises. This would be the backup piece that goes in my boot, not my main weapon.

If you'd like to get a box of geeky goodness droppe don your doorstep every month, head over to Loot Crate and sign up! Use promo code AEIOUWHY for 10% off your order. December's theme is galaxy and includes items from The Force Awakens and Halo 5!
