After a dismal September decline, Loot Crate's October TIME box is perhaps the best EVER.
Review by Matt CummingsOK, don't blame us for being cynical: September's Loot Crate was perhaps the worst sub box we've ever received. It certainly gave February a run for its money, placing en emphatic bookend on a run of very good boxes. We got great boxes in March, April, May, and June, and July, before August began a spell of declining efforts, lacking original thought and quality. But September was the proof we needed to end our subscription and seek the warmer shores of Geek Fuel (read our review HERE). So when it came to re-up for October, we were more than a little hesitant. Luckily, SandwichJohn convinced us to try one more time, and we couldn't have made a better choice. Loot Crate's October box is the best of the year, and perhaps the best box we've ever received. You think we're kidding? Just read on, but Remember Loot's promise: a $22 subscription should yield more in value than the cost. What we got was nothing short of spectacular, more than paying for our one-month 'love it or leave it' toe-dip.
