Loot Crate has announced a new Star Trek crate powered by QMx.
https://www.lootcrat...star-trek-crate

The first one says it come with a figure, which makes me wonder if theyre making a mini masters line of Trek figures like the Firefly ones?

If you order all 6, you also get the QMx metal refit that was shown a couple years back.

Im tempted to subscribe to one to see what its like, but cant justify all 6. I just hope the refit becomes available normally at some point.

    If I don't have it, they never made one.

Now this is tempting. I've seen friends do some of the other types and thought they were cool but not cool enough to do myself.

I've been burned by Lootcrate too many times. There's a huge number of people who buy these and split everything up on eBay I'll just go for that if I see anything I like.

The Firefly crates which are also powered by QMx have been pretty consistent.

I ordered the first crate, well see how it is and go from there.

When you say burned... do you mean because there wasn't anything you liked... or because the value really wasn't what they promised?  Are those are the same thing?

A little of both. Most of the stuff is pretty cheap, there's usually one or two good items. Best example I can think of is they advertised a box as having a special Ghostbusters item, it turned out to be a paper bookmark. I will say the QMx stuff is fairly decent, I got a BTTF hover board that's pretty nice although I don't feel like the box as a whole is ever worth the total price.

thanks for the feedback... yeah I'd be miffed too if a paper bookmark was marketed as a special item.

 

I don't care much for the blind boxes anyhow... often feels like they are artificially inflating the prices to tell you what a value they are.

I almost signed up for the Star Trek "Mission Box" last night, but decided not to do it.  I guess I wasn't ready for the commitment!

I made the mistake of not signing up for the first Firefly Crate, and missed out on Kaylee.

If they do release a new line of figures with Loot Crate, I dont want to risk missing out again.

This is my theory on this crate:

There seems to be 6 of them, since that's the max you can order. 

 

There are 5 older TV shows, and Discovery making 6 total series. (I don't count the Animated Series)

 

Each box will be based on one of the shows. 

 

The first one is Wolf 359, so TNG. 

 

My prediction is we'll get a Picard figure, along with merch that match's TNG's theme. 

 

Each following box will include that shows captain/main character as a figure, probably a mini masters based on the price compared to the Firefly box. 

 

So:

TOS - Kirk

TNG  - Picard

DS9 - Sisko

Voyager - Janeway

Enterprise - Archer

Discovery - Burnham

 

I could be wrong, but it makes sense.

How are the figures? It would be cool to have a collection of captains.

IF they do end up being Mini Masters, here are the only good pics I have of one of the Firefly ones on my phone:

I was wrong about the figure being Captain Picard, Ill be happy with Locutus though.

most of the items could probably be had for about the price of the box... so I would suppose the idea of getting a mystery box of stuff is the real appeal.
