Lootaku – May 2018: MASTER, FATHER, & SON

Lootaku – May 2018: MASTER, FATHER, & SON

Lootaku is a premium monthly subscription based service to fulfill everybody’s geeky addictions. Our box features full figure statues and Asia exclusives that you will not find in any other subscription box. We promise no filler or promotional items, and our values are always based on current cheapest prices on Amazon.

Prices and values on the Lootaku website are given US dollars. A one month subscription is $44.99 (three and six month subscriptions are cheaper). According to my currency converter today this is £33.90. UK Shipping is $17.66 (£13.31). Slightly pricey, but this is a premium box. Also it’s coming a long way.

1-month subscription total: £47.21

Lootaku have changed their shipping box! It’s similar in design, but the ‘wooded’ part is much darker. Looks pretty cool.

This month’s box features three generations of the DBZ protagonist family, so I’ll start with the oldest.

This Banpresto Grandista Resolution of Soldiers Bardock is a whopping 11” tall!

As you might know, Bardock is the father of Goku. This is a large heavy figure with some very impressive detailing. The blue block you see on the right is to hold the figure steady. It does stand on its own, but these figures commonly have some kind of stabilizing piece.

Here’s the son, Goku himself.

This Banpresto Dragon Ball Super DXF is a Special Release figure. 

Like the others in the Super Warriors collection, this is about 7” tall. Again, the stabilizing piece and beautiful detailing.

This Goku & Gohan Kamehameha Pin shows the father and son team together. This is a limited edition Lootaku exclusive item, and is highly detailed for an enamel pin.

Finally, this is a Muten Roshi Kame Aerobics Scarf. This is kind of a funny item, as it shows Master Roshi doing aerobics with a couple of lycra-clad girls in the background, which kid of fits in with his pervy reputation!

The menu card, with descriptions and values.

I’ll start straight in, as I always do, at the contents value as I can discover. I use an online currency converter so they’re correct at time of writing. I can’t always take into account shipping costs of individual items, but I do my best to be fair.

I never take the values as gospel, simply because this is a box from Hong Kong and often their items are Asia-exclusive or at least extremely difficult to find in the UK. Also I find you can never reply on RRP for anything. That being said, I’ve not yet valued the contents of one of their boxes at less, or even equal to, the price of their subscription.

Often I can find things on Amazon, but some of the items in Lootaku boxes are nigh on impossible to source in the UK, so sometimes I have to guesstimate. I also don’t use eBay as reference, as I find prices are not reliable or realistic.

We saw at the top that the monthly subscription is £47.21

Bardock figure – £29.66 on Amazon

Goku figure – £26.89 on Amazon

Pin – I found the designer online and similar pins cost $10.99, or £8.28

Scarf – I couldn’t find this exact one online but I did find something similar for about $10, or £7.53

Total: £72.36.

As always, the value is superb. The two figures alone are well over the price of the box, so the other two items are basically a bonus. I think the pin is really cool, it’s got wonderful details. I’m not so sure about the scarf. it’s certainly not a filler item, but it’s a bit odd, especially in summer! Wearables can be fun, but I’m not sure I’d wear this!

 

Our score: 9.0/ 10

Regardless, this is a great box, and even though there are only four items the theme is cohesive and the quality is excellent.
