A new ring has been forged. A hero has been reborn. It’s time to kill some monsters. No FORTRESS can withstand your might when you have powerful artifacts from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Middle Earth: Shadow of War and Dragon Age: Inquisition!

Loot Crate includes a colorful, two-sided poster that represents the monthly theme. Pictures and descriptions of all of the video game collectibles in the box are on the back of the poster.

August 2017 Loot Gaming Review Wrap-Up

August 2017 Loot Gaming Review - Fortress - Box Contents

The August 2017 Fortress Loot Gaming crate delivered a great variety of collectibles from a wide mix of video games. Our favorite video game collectible for the month is the ridonculous Dragon Age: Inquisition dragon vinyl figure. This dragon is incredibly detailed and looks quite ferocious perched on the rock. We generally keep our figures mint in the box, so we found this great video that shows all the details of the figure:

LOTR fans will instantly recognize the Nazgul helm featured in this month’s exclusive t-shirt. The Nazgul were the kings from the race of Men who, through the power of their Rings, became corrupted and servants of Sauron.

Next up is the Witcher 3 Bottle Stopper. This heavy metal stopper has a detailed wolf head to represent the School of the Wolf. Use it to cork or stopper your opened wine bottle or other bottled beverage.

Finally, the Zelda notebook is a geek chic way to jot down important notes or reminders. The pages are blank and the notebook has an elastic band you can use to help keep the notebook closed or to mark your place.
