I recently posted about my last Nerd Block, having tried it for 3 months. However, not liking to go too long without geekery, I had already signed up to Loot Crate. This is something Rhiannon has been getting for a while and it looked interesting. With a 10% off code and the promise of Villains, July sounded like a great month to start!
As I took everything out, in order to take pictures, I have to admit to being hugely amused by the box. I really think its great when boxes like this put that little extra effort into things.
As awesome as this box was, again it just wasn’t for me! First up there were some Deadpool socks – a villain I am not at all familiar with, despite liking Marvel Comics. These went straight to Chris as I knew he’d get some use out of them. Next came a comic, which I believe is GotG, specifically Rocket Racoon. I have no idea if Nat is into GotG but I’ll definitely be offering this comic as an addition to her growing collection! Next there were a couple of really cool Joker/Harley Quinn posters. These still aren’t really me, but I can at least appreciate their awesomeness. Again, these were gifted to Chris, though he doesn’t know it yet since I’ll be framing them and placing them in his office! The last few bits included a DVD (which sadly is Region 1, as Loot Box is US, but I’m hoping might play on the computer), a Bowser magnet (I can like AND use this), a Loot Box badge/bin and a Darth Vader keyring.
Finally, and not really that surprisingly, I love the tee that came in the box! While I’m neither a huge Joker or Loki fan, I do think they are fantastic villains. This “Joki” t-shirt is awesome and I will absolutely wear it!
Although the box contents are great, they still just aren’t me. Of course, like with the other boxes, I’m going to stick it out for a couple more, but right now I’m still searching for the box that suits me and my geekery!
