Loot Crate DX “Quest” Unboxing & Review – April 2016

loot crate dx review




Loot Crate just keeps pushing out new boxes right and left. The latest to hit the mailbox is the Loot Crate DX. It’s a bigger, more expensive, upgraded version of the regular Loot Crate. The theme for their April 2016 premiere box mirrors that of the regular crate, “Quest”… I know you’re dying to see what’s in the box so check out my unboxing and then below for the photos…

….so what did you think? Check out the photos below and my thoughts on the items now that I’ve had some time to think about it…

Loot Crate DX “Quest” Pin

To say this pin is big is an understatement… this thing is freaking huge! I understand they needed to step it up for a bigger box… but I would have went another direction completely with something better than a pin. Perhaps instead of a pin of a compass …give us an ACTUAL compass. IDK just a thought…

“Even Dragons Have Their Endings” Print

I have to admit, I was a bit disappointed to see a print in this box. Granted this is an extremely high quality print and the picture itself is stunning… in an expensive box such as this people tend to want better things. Still… I love Dragons and just might actually frame this up and hang it on my wall.

20 Sided Dice Drink Chillers

I have to admit, I didn’t think I would like an item such as this but I actually do. I know whiskey stones are a big thing these days …even though I don’t drink whiskey I will still use these to chill my drinks. They are surprisingly very heavy and the photo doesn’t do their shine justice… even if I didn’t use them they will display very nicely on a shelf. Much better than a ice cube tray any day!

World of Warcraft Crystal Lowball Glasses

I have never played World of Warcraft so I was worried about that type of WoW item I would find in this box. The best part about these glasses are that they are very understated and don’t have a bunch of logos plastered all over them. The glasses are extremely high quality, very heavy with just a simple symbol on each. It’s hard to guess a retail value on an exclusive item but crystal glasses like these can sell from $40-80 depending on the manufacturer… unfortunately I haven’t seen any indication of who made them. Overall I think these were the perfect choice item for a fandom that I do not follow so I chalk that up as a win for me.

Legend of Zelda Hoodie

This was a terrible photo of the hoodie. I realized when I started this post that I only had a close up of the symbol and not the whole item so I threw it on the floor and snapped the picture. On the back side of the hoodie there is a full size Zelda emblem…

…I like the black-on-black look. If it were a full color logo I probably wouldn’t wear it. The hoodie itself is very thin, almost T-shirt thickness, so it is essentially just a long sleeve Tee with a hood. This is the same type of item you could expect to get in the Loot Crate Level Up Wearables subscription if you haven’t looked into that yet. I assume it has a similar value of about $15-20.

Kidrobot Loot Crate Exclusive Puff Jake and Lil Finn GITD Figure

I’m not into Adventure Time either but I have to admit this is a very nice figure! The fact that it glows in the dark is what makes it an exclusive. The full color figure doesn’t seem to be available anymore but you can find it around for about $50. I’m not sure if that’s the flipper price or what but that was the price of the entire box right there… however, I think I’m going to hang on to mine because it’s growing on me. The only question now is to I keep it in the box or take it out…

…and that was the Loot Crate DX “Quest” theme for April 2016. While the theme and the fandoms involved weren’t exactly the best I think they did a really good job with it. If this is the quality of the items we can expect in future boxes I think there is some hope for the DX.
