LootCrate: More Than Meets the Eye

Sunday, June 29th, 2014

First off, yes, I have been a bad blogger. These past two weeks have been a blur. In between visiting my brother and new sister-in-law out in Portland, Oregon for one week and moving and cleaning everything out of my old apartment the next week, everything’s been a blur.

With the dust settling, I present to you…

LootCrate Box

This month’s LootCrate.

While I was out visiting my brother, we were at a comic book store (if you’re ever in the area, I recommend visiting Out of this World. You won’t regret it.) and looking at Transformers paper wallets. That’s when it came up.

“I can’t wait for this month’s LootCrate!”

Which then brought me to ask him what in the world he was talking about. I discovered LootCrate was one of those monthly boxes sent to your house with different items. LootCrate is centered around different comic, cartoon, movie and video game – aka geek themes.

This month, to suit the newly released movie, was Transformers.

After some convincing (which did not take a lot, sadly), I also signed up. $20 for a bunch of fun, odd ball Transformers items? What did I have to lose?


And opening it made me feel like it was Christmas.

LootCrate - Nano

One of the first things that caught my eye was the HexBug. So small, yet it had my interest. What else can you do other then open it up first thing and play. (For being so small, it is very entertaining.)

Look Ma, no falling off the counter.

Let me tell you, the shirt made me grin. I wore it last night to see Transformers in the theater. All kinds of compliments were thrown my way.

LootCrate - Gamer

Not only did it have Transformers items in the box (that has a fun, gamified interior), the box also contained a MLG cuff as well as some game codes.

And the boy loved his present. Inside the Shockwave box was this guy. Pretty cool, especially since his arms and legs were moveable.

And yes, it’s the little things that make me the happiest. Inside there were WARHEADS. One of my FAVORITE candies growing up. I don’t think I’ve had one since third grade. That was quickly rectified.

If you have an extra $20 to spend a month, I recommend giving LootCrate a try. It’ll be Christmas – monthly.
