    Loot Crate announced their next month's theme being Cyber and the main image on it's site features a bunch of related movies and I noticed that the E happened to look a lot like Optimus Prime. In addition in the email I received it had Optimus Prime's face in it so I have to wonder if there will be a Transformers item next month's crate. What do you guys think? https://www.lootcrate.com/

    Edit: Added the image from the email if anyone was interested.

    It'll be a Pop Vinyl that Walmart couldn't sell. JunkBin won't send anything decent, I guarantee it.

    It'll probably be a box willed with a dozen packs of the Dark of the Moon cards, apparently you can't give those things away anymore.

    Hope you enjoy your Funk Pop Vinyl Age of Extinction Drift! Maybe there will be a Johnny-five / Dr. Who / Breakfast cereal mash-up shirt too.

    yeah, it won't be anything that people would specifically buy.. that's what these boxes are usually comprised of.

    i wouldn't ever subscribe to any of these types of monthly boxes, but i do enjoy watching video reviews of people who do get them. it's interesting to see what's in each, it's just not worth it for me to buy a bunch of stuff that i wouldn't really have any interest in.

    So the picture has Optimus, Terminator, Cylons. What is the 4th and what is the large head? I think it looks like a Robotech Cyclone helmet.

    Looks Tron to me which would fit with the theme.

    I think of Daft Punk when I look at the helmet. idk

    I think the large head is generic cyborg cool robot-y head. And as mentioned before, the fourth is Tron.

    Looked a lot like Daft Punk, and I'm devastated it's not.

    Would be cool if it had an unreleased Commander Class Prime figures such as Unicron Megatron, Bludgeon, etc.

    So something from the Terminator franchise because of Genisys, something Transformers movie line related, something Battlestar Galactica 1978 related (judging by the old school Cylon, something Tron Legacy related, and maybe something Cybermen or Dalek related if they know what's best for the geek.

    The last crate I got was the HERO crate. My first was TRANSFORM. The quality went downhill even after the first one. Why is there MLG in my Transformers? I don't care, and either do the morons who put the crap in the crate. Most of it is dollar store quality crap. The only thing that would raise my standards, is if they had the online exclusive combiner limbs. Or Deluxe Groove. This shall proceed to oblivion.

    I believe the B is the flying police car from Blade Runner:

    It even appears to be lifting off in the same manner.

    Old school Cylon? That's a new one.

    That's... uh, a bit much. Considering they're $14 a pop at the most expensive, a Deluxe TF (especially an exclusive one) would be insane. I mean, it'd be lovely, but insane.

    Honestly, I like them. They're fun little surprises and I know $12 a month in random crap anyway. Plus, sometimes there's something really randomly awesome, like the exclusive Groot with a glow-in-the-dark hand, or last month's exclusive Power Ranger shirt.

    I'd say more often and not I don't get my money's worth of stuff, but I do out of the surprise. I like blindbags, after all.

    Once in a while they will have something of worth. I got a POP Groot that glows in the dark which was exclusive to lootcrate late last year. I was able to sell is for $70 on ebay

    I LOATHE these news adverts. Last time TFW2005 mentioned Loot Crate, they all but promised a transforming bus would be in the box! :cry 

    Yeah, just a cool vinyl - but not anywhere near the hype.

    A $15 crate just doesn't have enough monetary value to really put good stuff in it (even if LootCrate claims the boxes are worth $50-70, I don't see it! :(  ).

    Like he said, there was that one Groot. I bought a 3 month sub, and I made the money back selling that Groot! :D  So while it's mostly junk, there are some gems here and there...

    My prob is that it's not tailored enough to my tastes (i.e. TFs) and I don't have $15-20/mo. to toss on random junk. I'd rather take that $15-20 and put it toward a Takara repaint like Nemesis Prime.

    EDIT: Ninja'd! :lol
