Finally, the April 2019 Loot Crate Unboxing – But Where's My Aquaman Coin???

I had lost the memory of what this would be. But a new Loot Crate popped through the door and went to an instant video unboxing. Apparently it was the April 2019 Loot Crate, with the Showdown title, promising Avengers, Godzilla and Aquaman. And while the Avengers and Godzilla delivered, with a couple of random pieces from the warehouse, there was no sign of the Aquaman Collectible Coin promised in the literature. No matter, I'm not mad coin-obsessed anyway, despote what this video may suggest, and I was rather taken with the bonus item…

As ever, you can sign up for Loot Crate yourself here and get added binus with the code BLEEDINGCOOL. But I have no idea when your crates will actually arrive…

Loot Crate is a monthly subscription box for the geek demographic that has been running since 2012. Their themes change monthly and can be anything from 'Invasion' to 'Anti-Hero' to 'Future'. Loot Crate teams up with lots of companies such as DC, Marvel, and Nintendo to create a what is intended to be an exclusive and value-added array of merchandise in every crate. One-off crates with particular themes have been released, such as for Fallout 4 and Mass Effect. Loot Crate has also spun off into Loot Crate DX, Loot Crate Anime, Loot Pets, Loot Wear and specific brand boxes such as Firefly, JK Rowling's Wizarding World, Halo and more. They may have benefitted from the recent bankruptcy of rival subscription box Nerd Block. But they have been getting a little late – and recycleable in recet months…
