Okay, so, this is a thing now. (Mojang news post)
For $30 + shipping every month, you get a box filled with Minecraft merchandise. T-shirts, figures, foam tools and similar stuff are to be expected. It's brand new, so we don't have a model box as a reference just yet.
On my end, that'd be $30 + $15 shipping, so $45 a month to get random Minecraft items.
I know that things like Loot Crate have been running for a while, but I don't get it. If I want to buy merchandise available online or in stores, I'll go get what I'm interested in instead of paying for a mixed bag of maybe-I'll-like-this items. At best, I get some rare-ish items on the cheap. At worst, which I find to be more likely, I'm stuck with several things that I don't care about. What do I do with all the extras? Give them away? Sell them? It seems like more of a hassle than anything else...
Any thoughts on this?
