I have seen these LOOTCRATE boxes at Walmart & Target stores before, but have passed on them time after time. Sometimes they would have some cool stuff in them, but never anything that would make me drop $30-$40. Then on a recent trip to Walmart, I saw this "Best of the 80's" box on clearance for $14.95! This time the price was low enough that I felt I could endulge myself! Here's what was inside.
Ghostbusters Drawstring Backpack
I really like the Proton Pack print on this pack, but to be honest...it's kind of flimsy and just never feels right on my shoulders. I may never use it, but it did come in handy this past Halloween as my wife used it as part of her Abby Yates GB costume!
Back To The Future II Replica Hoverboard
This piece was AWESOME! The hoverboard looks like it came straight from the movie, even without the "Mattel" branding. It came in it's own padded box and also included a certificate of authenticity. My only issue with this, is that the board itself can't be removed from the mirrored base. I know it's supposed to be a presentation piece, but it would have been cool to use as an accessory for some of my action figures.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Magnets
I like the "old school" design on these. The TMNT look like they just lept from my TV during a cartoon filled Saturday morning! I don't really have a need for more magnets right now, so these guys will stay in their package until the call of duty arises and the Green Teens are needed to hold my kids artwork on the fridge!
Golden Girls Mug
This cup alone was worth the $14.95 price tag! The girls look stunning and it always brings a smile to my face to see these sassy ladies on any item. I don't drink coffee, so I may pass this item on to my wife. She always appreciates a good mug and it's a simple way for me to say "Thank you for being a friend".
Big Trouble in Little China/Escape From New York Comic
This has to be my favorite item from this box. I had actually wanted to pick up this comic back when it was released back in 2016, but when I got to my comic shop, they were sold out. Eventually I forgot about the book until I saw this LOOTCRATE Exclusive version included in the box. Big Trouble is one of my favorite 80's action flicks and I can't wait to read this book!
Well, there it is. 5 solid items ripped from the 80's for only $14.95! If I see some more of these boxes for that price, I just may have to pick them up. Do you own any of these boxes? What are your thoughts on Lootcrate? Let me know in the comments below! Thanks for reading.
