LootCrate is known to most gamers, the popular postal looting system that allows you to get a box of swag each month that started off as a mix match of different cool goodies across games, television, movies and more. LootCrate progressed further by spanning into more specific genres of crates being able to target more closely what you want as a gamer, movie buff or even snack enthusiast.
Fallout Crate is one of those creations, officially in partnering with Vault-Tec every two months gamers and fans of the franchise can get a box filled with radioactive themed goodies. As a big fan of the games and a lover of collecting merchandise, it was exciting to receive my first crate in the post and it was a big’un.
How much does the Fallout Crate cost?
Like with many other crates, you can choose to buy a single crate or to save a little cash “bulk subscribe” to the boxes for a slightly discounted rate. For the Fallout Crate, there are three different plans you can choose from.
1 month – $34.99 / £39.00 / €46.00
3 months – $33.99 / £39.00 / €45.00
6 Months – $32.99 / £38.00 / €44.00
Interestingly, the UK based pricing was the one out of the three that were looked at that did not offer a discount at each level. The cost of the 1 and 3 box plan was the same costing £39.00, receiving a £1 discount after selecting the 3rd tier. Each of the other countries would get a £1 discount per plan, per month. This might be a technical error which we have asked for a comment on and will update the end of the review.
How long did it Fallout Crate take to arrive after being shipped?
The first crate was a hard one to judge, as they are delivered to customers every 2 months, it looks like they ship them out in batches in 2-month intervals. We applied for the crate and it arrived about 2 months after, which makes sense. They gather all their orders and will manufacture and outlay all the components for each box.
What this could mean though and it’s not confirmed is that, if you order just after their “batch” it could mean you are waiting 2 months for your first box. They do explain this in some detail on their website but it could be clearer for your first box when you have no current timeframe for when it would arrive i.e every two months from the last box.
