Unboxing: Loot Anime – December 2016

By Dustin Cabeal

There are only two items that were "meh" in this month's box. One is the phone trinket that they always send and those are always "meh." The other was a cheap keychain. The rest was pretty damn good. The Sailor Moon bottle opener is legit and heavy. The Robotech light up this is nice but pretty cheap once you touch it and use it. The Ein plushy... is fucking amazing. My son loved it, and I'm happy he did. If you're getting this "crate," then you should be pretty pleased. I know that I liked it way more than the regular Loot Crate this month. Loot Wear is late again, so I probably won't have a video for it.
