This past July, Lootcrate DX offered a crate themed “Rise up,” which included products from Transformers, G.I. Joe, Planet of the Apes, Alita Battle Angel and Wizarding World. This box is memorable for including a 5″ PVC Optimus Prime figure.
Thank you to Lootcrate for sending along this crate for review.
The crate is shipped in the standard subscription box, with the Lootcrate DX logo on the front and top. Inside the box are all of that month’s loot, including products from Transformers, G.I. Joe, Planet of the Apes, Battle Angel and Wizarding World.
This crate’s theme is “Rise Up,” and includes a Hogwarts Wizarding World tee-shirt, Lootwear Planet of the Apes tube socks, Alita Battle Angel water bottle, and two additional exclusives that would be very appealing to most G.I. Joe and Transformers fans.
A Skystriker XP-14F pin is a must have for G.I. Joe collectors, especially if you collect pins from the brand. This features the iconic eagle on the front and this has a high-end look and feel to it.
For Transformers, you get a Optimus Prime figure that is stylized and non-transformable, and stands on an Autobot base with his left foot. The figure comes in his iconic red, blue, light grey, and yellow deco, with the Autobot logo on his left shoulder, along with smoke stacks, on the sides of the arms. He comes in a static pose with the right arm holding the blaster, and the left arm out to the side with his finger pointing out. Even though the elbows and shoulders show joints, he does not have articulation and is permanently in this pose. The head sculpt is also on the small side, and comes with the blue helmet, and grey face plate. The blaster also cannot be removed from his hand.
Overall, this is a fun crate and geared best towards G.I. Joe and Transformers fans, which includes items that you’d enjoy adding to your pin and toy collections.
