Loot Crate's SUMMON box arrives with a giant thud.
Review by Matt CummingsIn our August review, we discussed the continued new direction subscription box service Loot Crate was taking. Having turned in an impressive run from March, April, May, and June, and July, we began to notice a movement towards fewer items, including the disappearance of their famous shirts. And for awhile this worked...sort of. Cool figures, a hardbound book, and a rad batarang were just some of the 'upgrades' which satiated our real desire for the return of the shirt. But as I soon learned, September's box SUMMON was as disjointed (and cheap) as any I've ever received. Remember Loot's promise: a $22 subscription should yield more in value than the cost. And while that may be the case with this one, it's not without serious shortcomings. Facebook. On Twitter, follow us at @SandwichJohnFilms, and follow author Matt Cummings at @mfc90125.
