Ghostbusters Loot Crate October 2017 Unboxing

 By Paul Rudoff on Nov. 13, 2017 at 11:30 PM , Categories: Ghostbusters 1, Clothing, Toys

If you've been following the Spook Central Facebook page - and if you're not, why? - you'd know that last month Loot Crate, the subscription box service that provides monthly boxes of geek and gaming related merchandise, had lots of exclusive Ghostbusters items. The kind folks at Loot Crate sent me a few of the items, which I will document in this "unboxing" article.

It should be noted that because of the nature of the subscription-based service, none of the exclusives are available for sale anymore. You had until October 19th to order them from Loot Crate, after which, you missed your chance. If you want them now, you'll have to go the eBay route and pay much more for them. See, now you know why you should be following the Spook Central Facebook page. That's where we post all of the latest news :-) This here website is for the reviews and long-form articles. A place for everything and everything in its place.


Anyway, first out of the box is the Loot Crate Exclusive Ghostbusters Windbreaker (Loot Wear - $14.99). "This windbreaker was designed to evoke the classic Ghostbusters uniform, including a patch inspired by their ghost trap." A windbreaker is a thin jacket, which makes it unsuitable for New York weather at this time of year, but perfect for April and May when the temperatures start rising. This is actually my first Ghostbusters jacket, and DAMN is it cool! The front is similar to the classic Ghostbusters jumpsuit, complete with "name patch", which reads "EST. 1984".


The reverse side features the No Ghost logo dead center, and there is some "ghost trap" caution striping on the right bicep.


Next is the Loot Crate Exclusive Ghostbusters Logo T-Shirt (Loot Crate - $15.99). T-shirts featuring the No Ghost logo are the most prevalent of Ghostbusters merchandise, dating back to 1984 when the movie was originally released. Heck, they were seen in the movie itself! Most of the time, the classic logo on black is the best because when ever some company tries to get "creative", it usually results in one ugly shirt. This is an exception. Not only does it have that cool "rainbow prism" look to it (reminiscent of The Real Ghostbusters cereal hologram t-shirt), but it also pays homage to Peter's not-so-scientific ESP Zener test. It IS a star!


Finally, there's the Funko POP Stay Domo Vinyl Figurine. This is my first Funky POP figurine, and what better first than this crazy, hungry-looking marshmallow man. Domo is the official mascot of Japan's public broadcaster NHK, and he has "crossed over" with several Ghostbusters and pop culture properties. Because this item is not a Loot Crate exclusive, you can buy it on Amazon. Complete the set by buying the Slimer Domo and Ghostbuster Domo vinyl figurines, too.
