Bleeding Cool has been covering the slow decline to the bankruptcy of Loot Crate, and its current buyout by The Loot Company with investment from NECA. In an e0mail to current or former Loot Crate subscribers, the new company had a message. About their customers' data – with a few promises to add…
In case you hadn't heard, Loot Crate is now under new ownership and has a new name: The Loot Company.
The new owner is a sister company of NECA (the company that owns Kidrobot and WizKids). NECA's all about limited edition collectibles, so they totally get our business and our community. Going forward, you can expect better exclusives and greater experiences delivered to your door on time!
