Bankrupt gamer and geek subscription box service Loot Crate Inc. has just been purchased by NECA owner Joel Weinshanker.
A Delaware bankruptcy judge approved the sale of the collectible subscription box service for $30 million on Sept. 26 to Loot Crate’s lender, an affiliate of Money Chest, which Weinshanker is a majority owner.
“It’s going to be Loot 2.0,” Weishanker said. “You are going to see it as a platform, not just a crate. Around the world it’s going to be the platform for IP (intellectual property) holders to get out their movies, their television (shows) and their video games.”
To get the ball rolling with his new investment, Weishanker is tapping NECA to help launch the new and improved Loot Crate with style. The first box under the new ownership will feature a NECA Batman with a nice deco replicating the look of the classic Kenner Tec-Shield Batman action figure. Act fast though, this offer expires October 7th and 9am EST.
Check out a sneak peek of the upcoming figure below.
