Facehugger Plus: The Facehugger plush is pretty adorable. It comes with a rubber band, so you can strap it to your face like it’s literally hugging your face. Leave it to Kidrobot to turn something so vicious and carnivorous into something so cute. I love this one. I think it’s an awesome photo prop as well.
X-Files shirt: I am a fan of X-Files, have been for years. I remember watching the original series with my mom so I’m glad the show is coming back. I love the design on the t-shirt, it was the winning design from artist Francis Minoza.
X-Files Flashlight: I couldn’t imagine another tv series being a better fit to have their name on a flashlight than X-Files. It’s perfect really. This thing is compact size, water-resistant and with batteries included.
Space Invaders Figure: The Space Invaders Vinyl Figure is basically like a 3D Space Invader from the original game. This one brings back memories of playing the classic game as a kid. The vinyl figure is a bit transparent. There are three different colors that looters can receive, I got the one orange one. This is another nice little vinyl figure to add to the shelf.
Fifth Element Multi Pass: My favorite item was the Fifth Element Prop Replica Multi Pass. When they mentioned Fifth Element, I was not expecting something like this at all but I love it. Also, a nice item to have for cosplayers. It included a plastic sleeve as well, in case you wanted to use it to carry your personal ID.
January Pin: This month’s Pin is different from the previous versions. Beginning this month, Each pin unlocks something “epic” and can be redeemed by going to lootcrate.com/pins. This month’s unlockable is comic Letter 44 Issue 1 free via Comixology. I thought that was a nice addition to the monthly crates. I admit, I have never heard of Letter 44 prior to this but I’ll give it a read.
Mini Prints: There are two prints included in the crate, one features The Day The Earth Stood Still and the other The World of the Worlds. I like both designs. The prints are 9×6. I’ll have to find some space on the wall for them.
The crate also came with a booklet (not pictured). Besides a description of each item, the box also features a “How to Survive an Alien Invasion” guide as well as a cheat sheet to catch up on the X-Files series before the premiere of the new season.
Speaking of the new season, who is excited for the new episode airing tomorrow?
I feel like this crate was a bit of a nostalgia trip, its one of the reasons why I love it. Everything featured was from the 90s or earlier. I think some of the younger looters may not find this month’s crate as appealing but I enjoyed it. I enjoyed all of it really. I think the Multi Pass and the Facehugger plush are what made this crate an instant win.
