Magical Loot Crate – November 2016

I just recently went with my wife to see Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, and got really excited shortly after when I learned that this months Loot Crate theme was magical. The obvious connection this month: the release of this new movie, which probably meant I was getting a Fantastic Beasts item. While the Magical box for November 2016 wasn’t my favorite Loot Crate, the Fantastic Beasts item was amazing, and made the crate for me!

Fantastic Beasts tShirt

I usually always save the tshirts for the end of the article, but since this was the highlight of the box for myself, I had to get it out of the way first. When watching the movie, you get a very different view of the wizarding world that doesn’t centre around the Ministry for Magic in London, England. Instead, we get to see the United States of America equivalent, with their own great logo which incorporates the iconic bald eagle.

The shirt, while exclusive to Loot Crate, is still officially licenced by Warner Bros Entertainment, so you know you are getting a great, quality product in the box. On it’s own, this is the type of shirt that would retail for 14.99-19.99. This almost makes the box worth it on its own.

Dr. Strange QFig

QFigs are often more expensive than your average collectible figure, but for good reason. These figures always have dynamic posses as opposed to a standard look that most collectible figures have, and the detail on them is amazing. This is once again true. This Dr. Strange character is the best QFig I have gotten to date; even all the little details amaze me, including the base that the figure is standing on.

As always, we look over each figure we get for the quality of the craftsmanship. I’ve never had problems with QFigs in the past, and this time around was no exception. The details are outstanding, and the paint job is also top notch. Sometimes cheaper, mass produced figures have obvious painting issues – whether its a scuff mark or some bleeding – but this is never a problem with the QFig line up. Since they tend to price a bit higher than other collectible figures, you are once again getting a great valued item in your Loot Crate subscription.

Elder Scrolls Online Pin

I don’t usually spend time discussing the pins that come in the Loot Crates at length, but the Elder Scrolls Online pin from this months box is outstanding, and different from past Loot Crate pins. The detail is wonderful, and creates the outline of the map of Cyrodile (I believe), which is the main area for the Elder Scrolls 4: Oblivion.

The Night is Dark and Full of Terror

If you are not watching Game of Thrones, then you are missing out on one of the best television experiences of the 21st century. With a host of interesting characters, great plot twists, and the ability of the directors – or really, the book writer – to kill of main characters at an alarming pace, the storyline is never boring.

This month, Loot Crate included one of the more details day planners I have ever received in a subscription box. With the ability to note the weather, days of the week, ect., this great little book will come in handy on a daily basis, and will show off my love for a great television show!


This wasn’t my favorite box, but it had some really strong items regardless, making it a better-than-it-could-have-been box for me. The pin – as a huge Elder Scrolls fan – was unbelievable, and the tshirt was the best I’ve received in recent memory. Easily an 8.5/10.
