    I think I'l misssing it, but I don't see anything about MOTU on their site.

    It shows World of Warcraft instead of MOTU.

    It will most likely be a disappointment.
    They did a big FANTASY crate last year and let me just say it was HORRIBLE. What could have been awesome was just sad in my opinion.
    One of the items included was a bow tie....in a FANTASY themed box. The best thing in it was a set of playing cards themed like Princess bride.

    It looks like Masters is in the delux box which is $45.

    Info straight from Loot Crate:

    The MOTU item is in the "Loot Crate DX crate." It's the more deluxe crate than the original. You can sign up for one month. Link for the DX.

    A few hints about the mystery crate.
    1. Of the five to six items included, you will get ONE MOTU item.
    2. You will need to supply your size.

    FYI.
    You can NOT sign up for 1 month. Read the fine print. It auto renews every month if you don't cancel it. And the kicker (unless it's changed) you have to send them an email to cancel. No unsubscribe button anywhere on the site. you will have to dig around and find it.

    My nephew said he seen something on fb about motu. So I looked it up, finally found this.. after I read subscription I said forget it.. but, just seen you can do a month.. but after reading that it will continue if you don't cancel it just ruined that. I'm curious to see what the item is, and I doubt it's 45 dollars worth..

    That's good to know as well.. one thing aside from that is, I'd be paying 45 for one motu item that is most likely a shirt. I'm intrigued to try it, but don't wanna be upset with getting a shirt for that price. Wow means nada to me, and same with marvel.

    Thats awesome that they added that in. But that was NOT NOT the way it was before. I had to call the 800 support number just to find out the address, to send the email, to cancel my sub last time. But that was a while ago and they have gotten a lot of negative feedback over it. So it makes sense that they would have made it simpler to do.

    I simply DO NOT understand this blind box craze. If I was a child, this would be fun. Like grab bags at school fairs. But as an adult living in an on demand society, I am completely boggled by how these companies exist. Who actually likes subscribing blind to get random T-shirts and figures? This isn't like blind subbing to MOTUC subs not knowing the characters, cuz at least you are collecting a line. These Blind Box's can contain anything! No rhyme or reason, just geek crap. Who on earth wants to spend $250+ a year getting unknown crap. I hear these companies are now revealing the items to drum up sales, which makes sense. I think this would lose its charm rather quickly after the first or second box. My 2 cents.

    Yup, I would never sign up for anything like this with my own money. If I am going to spend any money, I want to know what I am getting and make sure I like it.

    Now, someone else signed me up for LootCrate and I can honestly say I am glad I didn't pay for it myself. Last month there was a Star Trek shirt, an Alien PopVinyl figure, a Harley Quinn comic book and a Daredevil/Punisher reversible wool beanie among other things. This month I got a Labyrinth shirt, a 20 sided die ice mold, a horn drinking flask and a souvenir pin. I mean, you do get more than $25 worth of stuff but I'd rather keep my $25 to spend on stuff I really want rather than random items I have no real interest in.

    Easy pass.

    If the t-shirt looks cool, I'll just buy it off eBay from one of the many subscribers trying to flip that month's contents to get back some of their $45.
    It's a big rock. I can't wait to tell my friends. They don't have a rock this big.

    To each their own. I'm definitely a picky dude. None of that stuff I would care to own. As for T-shirts, that is one thing I pride myself on. My goal is to get at least 1 compliment a day on my shirt and more often than not, I'll surpass that. Every T-shirt I own I picked for a reason. Each one supports something I love or cracks a joke I think is funny. I would never wear a T-shirt just cuz I got it for free. And at the end of the day, $250 buys me a great single malt that I'd enjoy infinitely more and a lot longer than the joy of getting a surprise or two in the mail once a month.

    But again, if this is your thing, go for it. I just hope Matty never decides to throw an exclusive this way!

    I signed up for a three month sub last year after watching PD review them on youtube, but, it wasn't worth the money as I didn't follow most of the lines, it was, however, handy for secret santa etc.

    Funnily enough, one of the reasons I gave for cancelling was the lack of MOTU. But I'll just wait and see what the item is and perhaps, buy it off ebay.
    Take each day as it comes, but never take it for granted.

    Loot Crate May 2016 Power sub.

    Did anyone purchase the Loot Crate for May 2016 themed "Power"? They advertised for an item of Marvel, Street Fighter and Masters of the Universe. My box arrived today and I got a few Marvel products, Dragon Ball Z, and World of Warcraft, but no MotU or Street Fighter. I am very upset, as is obvious MotU is the only reason I bought it. This was my first and last time ordering from them.

    Update: Turns out I ordered the normal Loot Crate and not the DX, so be warned.

    The DX one is still available. It says it includes a pow Stan Lee button, a die cast figure, and two wearables in it. I'm thinking by those clues there is a Masters short or hoodie in it. Last month's had a pretty cool hoodie.

    I did LootCrate for quite awhile but I got tired of trying to get rid of the stuff I didn't want. I just cherry pick on eBay for the few things I really want now. The LVL UP packs are less of a gamble as there is only one or two items and you can see what brand will be featured. Since MOTU was in the socks and tee LVL UP packs, I went ahead and got those.

    Just got the Power loot crate. Had nothing Masters of the Universe related in mine. Really disappointed is an understatement. I bought it because the front page ad said that something MOTU would be included. 20160521_140823 2.jpg
    I blurred out the contents so not to spoil it for anyone who still likes the surprise of what's inside, but if needed I can tell you via private message what was included with the unaltered pic. Would like to hear from anyone else that got the Power crate if the same happened to them.

    Edit: just saw it had to be the DX crate. pff...
