The item that is on the top of the list is the Futurama “Planet Express” Ship Model. It’s well made, sleek, and on a good stand. It will make a good addition to any collector’s shelf or on a desk at work. The painting and detailing are all done with care.
The T-shirt this month is a grey Rick and Morty shirt. The patterning is good; the color so-so. It will be good for a fan to wear around down while waiting for Season three. I know one person in particular who will love this shirt–writer Toni Adams just finished interviewing the Rick and Morty crew and is gushing about the show to all and sundry.
The Loot Crate July 2016 includes a comic book, the first in a few month is Rai 4001 AD from Valiant. I’ve made no secret of my love for Rai, so I am delighted to have a copy of this well-drawn, plotted comic from Valiant and even more delighted that it will reach people who have not read it yet.
It wouldn’t be a Future-themed crate without Star Trek. The offering is less-exciting than it could be, though. The stick-on plastic Enterprise plaque is nifty-looking, but it’s always hard to know where to place something that sticks permanently anywhere it is placed and can never be moved. So, your mileage may vary. If you have a piece of furniture or a wall you want the Enterprise dedication plaque on forever, you’ll love it. If you think you might be moving or dislike items glued on to your stuff, this will make you less happy.
The Mega Man figure is another uptick, though. Like the ship, it will be a fine addition to any collector’s items. It’s nicely painted and will stand out well. The box was harder to open than average, but that may be an issue with my particular box. The figure also comes packaged in a metallic wrapper, so it’ll be up to individuals to decide whether they want to see it (which is more fun) or save it in pristine condition (which is potentially more profitable).
Overall, this is one of the Loot Crate’s better offerings, with a wide array of item types and sources.
And if you get it–please read the Rai comic right away and then share it with friends.
