Kicking off 2016 with an INVASION of extraterrestrial loot! This month has Pop culture classics from 1951 all the way till 2016, being celebrated with a wide variety of items.
January sees the X-Files infiltrating our TVs once more, after a 14-year break, and the joyous news that there will be a t-shirt in every Loot Crate going forward:
- Exclusive X-Files The Day Has Come T-Shirt – The FBI’s most wanted t-shirt celebrates the return of the series to TV. The design is from Nicebleed, the result of a design contest collaboration with Loot Crate and Threadless.
- Exclusive Alien Facehugger Plush – ALIENS invaded movies theaters 30 years ago! While the on-screen facehugger wasn’t all that friendly, this version is super cute and there is even an elastic band to re-enact the pleasurable “facehugging” from those critters. Yes, I currently have the facehugger on my face to test it out, and I must say it is very soft.
- Exclusive Space Invaders Vinyl Fig – Take a classic 2d shooter game and ZAP!.. re-imagined as a 3D vinyl fig
- Exclusive The Fifth Element Prop Replica Multi-Pass – A never-before-offered, officially licensed prop replica of Leeloo Dallas’s multipass! It is fully functional letting you swap out your own I.D.
- Exclusive “Invasion” Mini Art Prints – 2 prints featuring 1951’s The Day the Earth Stood Still and 1953’s The War of the Worlds.
- Exclusive X-Files LED Flashlight – A strong, high projector, water resistant and anti-shock switch. You can lea your very own alien investigation. And guess what… the batteries are even included!
- January 2016 Loot Pin – I don’t usually include the pins in the list of loot as they are not usually exciting, but as of this year – a new and improved, cloisonné style collector pin with a special free bonus loot.
Verdict: Always love the classics and you can’t really go wrong with aliens. I am glad to see some improvements with their boxes, like including a T-shirt in every box but also making their pins as collectibles. Overall, great start to the year!
