Unboxing March's Loot Crate: Versus

Loot Crate tied their March theme into two EPIC face-off's with "Versus." With the release of the second season of Netflix's Daredevil (which features The Punisher) and the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice movie, it was a no-brainer that we'd get items based on those properties. We also got swag that featured Harley Quinn, Alien vs. Predator, and Star Trek. I know I keep saying this, but this month's box was better than the last. The improvements Loot Crate made at the beginning of the year put them leaps and bounds ahead of other subscription boxes.

The box was full of exclusives like the awesome Batman v Superman Mighty Wallet. This wallet, which is made of Tyvek, is expandable, durable, and is worth just over half the price of the crate itself. The images come straight from the movie posters which feature Henry Cavill and Ben Affleck. Last year, Loot Crate gave us a Simpson's version and I loved it, so getting another one was welcome.

Also in the crate was an exclusive Marvel beanie featuring Daredevil and the Punisher. The cool thing about this beanie is that it's reversible. One side is red and features Daredevil's "DD" logo. The other side is black and and sports the Punisher's skull logo. This was the coolest item in the box by a long shot. Also in the box were an exclusive Harley Quinn #1 comic and a Star Trek "Mirror, Mirror" T-Shirt featuring the art of Juan Ortiz.

Lastly the box contained not one, not two, but THREE Alien vs. Predator items. The first was an epic AvP pin. This thing is beautiful and is definitely going on the jacket. Next was a free rental to stream either the Aliens or Predator movie on the VUDU app. Finally was an exclusive Alien vs Predator blind box which featured one of two figures 4.5" figures. I received the Alien xenomorph with a "special glow-in-the-dark deco on its despicable dome." It's a very cool figure, but being a bigger Predator fan, I wish I'd have gotten it instead. Still, it's a minor quibble over an otherwise perfect box!
