Subscription boxes with Deadpool - May/Spring 2018

Hi all.

TBH I'd gone off these, but I did notice that Loot Crate were having a bit of a Deadpool theme for May so I checked it out. Glad I did - the entire Loot Crate DX box for May 2018 will be Deadpool stuff.

They are also offering 20% off for Mother's Day using the code SUPERMOM, so I snagged myself a good deal. For those of you in the US, it will cost you US$40 + $5 shipping with the discount. Those of us elsewhere pay a combined cost and get 20% off that. Most of the options seem to be pay in your own currency, which is nice.

This is for the DX box that has the more expensive stuff in it. One of the items they had in a previous DX box was the X-Force variant of the Deadpool Finders Keypers statue, which I actually liked more than the original (I got mine on eBay - the rest of that particular box didn't interest me. It also sold out quite quickly, so I didn't really get a chance to think about it...). As the whole DX box this time is Deadpool I figured it was worth a punt again.

DX box is here: https://www.lootcrate.com/crates/dx - as mentioned, they have been known to sell out, so I thought I'd flag this on the forum in case anyone else is interested.

The 'regular' Loot crate also has Deadpool for one of the items, but it's just a T-shirt. Not a bad one, but I have enough T-shirts already... See the spoilers for the regular box here: https://www.mysubscriptionaddiction.com/2018/05/today-only-loot-crate-coupon-20-off-spoiler-3.html. SUPERMOM will get you 20% off that box as well until the 23rd: https://www.lootcrate.com/crates/lootcrate.

Just to round it out, the Geek Fuel EXP box for Spring 2018 also has a Deadpool T-shirt - it's noted that this one is "officially licensed". As Geek Fuel boxes are now quarterly, they are now more expensive (thus the EXP?). Again, not sure I want this just for another shirt, but just letting everyone know it exists... https://www.geekfuel.com/

I figured that the Loot Crate DX was worth buying for May as it's completely Deadpool. Remember that if you do sign up, you'll need to go back in to cancel the subscription in time that they won't charge you for the following month as well. It's easy enough to do - you just need to remember to do it. DPL

EDIT: The Loot Crate May boxes with DP (both standard and DX) have now closed.
The Geel Fuel EXP box for Spring [Vol 1] is still open as at 22/05
The LC Deadpool Club Merc boxes are still available - see the more recent posting for those

Thanks for the heads up about the DX Loot Crate. Ordered one.

I was just pleased that not only were the DX ones still available, they were offering 20% off as well!

Yup, I'm in for the DX crate too!

Arrested Development and Archer items are just a happy bonus.

Took the plunge too.

Here's hoping!

Spoilers are out for the DX box: https://www.bleedingcool.com/2018/05/23/whats-in-the-box-loot-crate-dx-may-2018/

I'm a bit on the fence for this one. The hardcover looks pretty good, and the cap is cool. Oddly enough I was actually eyeing off a DP Mr Potato Head the other day (thank God I didn't buy it then) - but surely we didn't need a Loot Crate branded-version of something that already existed. A variant version would have been cool.

The pin is OK I guess, as is the mini poster. Shirt I will wait to see how it fits...

The Club Merc boxes better give me an X-Force variant of the unicorn Q-Fig coming out soon, that's all I'm saying... DPL

I’m pretty disappointed. I already have the Potato Head from way back when it was a SDCC exclusive. I also already have the full size version of the book. The hat and shirt are boring. I hope the quarterly boxes are more unique.

Yeah that's a bit disappointing. Hopefully on closer inspection the Potato Head is more unique, but it certainly doesn't look it. I haven't got the book, so that's nice.

But yeah... kinda feel a bit cheated on this one. Here's hoping that Club Merc rolls better.

Also, this is the Poptaters Deadpool, on (what I think) is the company that makes them's website.

So unless there's something significantly different other than packaging from the old SDCC one, this isn't even that exclusive.

EDIT: So I literally just found out there're both 2014 and 2016 versions of the SDCC exclusives, with different boxes. I've got the 2014, which is the yellow box. The 2016 is the one on that website I just posted.

LAME.

However, a quick search on that website has highlighted a few things I didn't know existed: namely, the Potato Head keyring, the "Wood Warrior", and the Nesting Dolls.

And I really like the Nesting Dolls being comprised of the Deadpool Corps.
