The Firefly Cargo Crate is a bi-monthly Firefly themed subscription box from Loot Crate. I’ve been a subscriber since the very first box and just recently I became an official influencer so they now send me these boxes at no charge to review (awesome right?!?) To start off the new year, Firefly Cargo Crate strayed from the main characters and decided to go with everyone’s favorite con artist: Saffron in a theme they call “YoSaffBridge”. To me, this was a bold choice since we still haven’t got to the 3 biggest characters in the show… but I’m not complaining. Of course we already know that there will be a Qmx Mini Master figure in the box because they spoil it before every box. But what else will we see?? The best way to find out is to open the box and take a look.
…so what did you think? Well let’s have a closer look at everything…
Firefly Cargo Crate “Night Sweetie” Pin
So every month they have a pin that goes along with the theme. This is obviously referencing Saffron’s deadly kiss …well not so much deadly as like …sleepy kiss maybe lol. It’s a nice quality pin and it will go along with all the rest from the Firefly Cargo Crate collection.
Atlas of the Verse Flashcards and Bellerophon Travel Sticker
There are always some paper goods in the box. There’s a travel sticker in & on every box that is relevant to the theme… this month being Bellerophon which is the place where Mal & Saffron have their final showdown so-to-speak. The flashcards are part of a series that feature different planets in the Firefly universe with interesting facts and such on the back side.
Firefly Qbits Figure
The Qbits are back! After several boxes without a Qbits figure inside, they brought them back for 2017. They are still using the same “formula” as before where they feature 2 different characters in a blind box. This month’s characters were River and Inara and if you can’t tell from the photo… I got Inara. They are eventually going to offer the complete set for sale so I can buy the figures I’m missing if I want to complete the entire collection. (who am I kidding, of course I do!!)
Firefly Serenity Key Chain
Normally, I throw all of my key chains into a box and they forever collect dust… but this one is different. I am such a huge Firefly fan (obviously) and I love space ships more than anything so I am definitely putting this one my keys! It’s from Qmx of course and it is highly detailed and very solid feeling so it seems like it wont ever chip up or wear down.
Lassiter Laser Pistol MK1 Shirt
This, of course, is the pistol that Saffron and Mal were trying to steal in the “Garbage” episode. I love Loot Crate shirts and they’re all I ever wear because they are super comfortable and (usually) tagless. The design is great… I love the blueprint look and well… it’s a Firefly shirt so I’m definitely going to wear it!
Qmx Mini Masters Little Damn Heroes Saffron Figure
As I said in the beginning, we knew this figure was coming. But to actually hold and inspect it I find that it is one of their better figures in the series. It really captures the seductive look of Saffron in the front, and the gun she is holding behind her back says it all. They really did a great job on this one!
…and that was the Firefly Cargo Crate “YoSaffBridge” theme for January 2017. Overall I think they did great for it being a side character box… my favorites being the Mini Masters figure (obviously) and the Serenity keychain. The next box arrives in March and is themed “The Worthier Part” featuring Shedherd. So we are back onto the main characters again although it was not one that I had hoped it would be… ah well we will get our Mal, River, & Inara eventually.
