Hello all! It’s been a while! Too long, in fact. And I’m really sorry about that! ;-;
However, I am back and with a LOOT CRATE! And, as you can imagine, the lovely people that provide us with these monthly crates of epicosity (thanks Tobuscus for that term) have once more outdone themselves! So I won’t keep you waiting in anticipation any longer. Here’s the February Loot Crate!!
That’s right. This month they went with a doctor theme for the crate. I’m sure you’re all thinking “Well then it’s all gotta be Doctor Who related, right?!” WRONG. They actually brought together a few items from a few different doctors!
TARDIS Prime Shirt – GraphicLab Tees
This shirt brings in a crossover of epic proportions. Who would have known the time-traveling ship known as the TARDIS was actually a Transformer?! And he has a BOWTIE! That, alone, lets you know TARDIS Prime is not here to play games. This shirt is, by far, awesome and I loved it! And it just so happens that I recently began to watch Doctor Who so this was definitely appreciated when I opened up the box to see this! Loot Crate is also awesome because they send us shirts in our sizes, so it’s not a giant sleep shirt on me, but a shirt that fits just right! One of my co-workers is also a Looter, so as you can imagine, the two of us wore our shirts the next day to work. If only I had gotten a picture of us together!
Mega Man Air Freshener – Epic Scents
Mega Man isn’t a doctor, yes, but he was created by a doctor, Dr. Light! This air freshener is very cute and totally full of nostalgia. The scent itself is a cool minty-ish smell that is very strong! I had opened it and left it inside my Loot Crate with the rest of my stuff over night after opening it in order to not lose anything (because shit disappears in my house. Seriously.) and in the morning my shirt was pretty much coated in the scent of the air freshener. So needless to say, it works guys! It will now hang proudly in my car and fill it with a lovely aroma of geekery.
Caffeinated Brain Bits – Harcos Labs
Going along with the doctor/science feel, I was also greeted with more delicious snacks to nom on. These little “brain” pieces of candy look like a bunch of pink nerds, but are actually a chewy candy filled with caffeine. The label said it was watermelon flavored, but I didn’t really taste watermelon while I was eating them. Instead they tasted like sweet, sugary, addicting candies that I can’t really describe for a flavor. But they are still good to eat and will give you little bits of energy with each bite!
And yes, they are already gone, because nothing with caffeine lasts long here with this caffeine addict in the house. 😀
Sharks Drink Cooler – Loot Crate Labs
Aside from the shirt, this was pretty epic. My first reaction upon seeing the image printed on the drink cooler was “I have fricken sharks with fricken laser beams attached to their FRICKEN HEADS!” – my friends who were witnessing the unboxing promptly laughed and then one of my friends snagged it and put her fist in it and tried to pet my cat with it. The cat was not amused. However, I was! And the next day I couldn’t resist getting a soda just so I could use this awesome thing and show everyone the laser beam sharks and the Loot Crate logo so they would all know where it came from!
Bacon Lip Balm – J&D
A piece of bacon a day keeps the doctor away, right? Well it should! Because, seriously, who doesn’t love bacon? Now I can keep my lips from getting chapped and have that delicious taste of bacon at the same time. However, that could also be a bad thing because you’d constantly be licking your lips to get the taste of bacon, then have to reapply it but then you’d lick it off again!! But I’ll confess, the lip balm actually doesn’t taste like bacon. In fact, I’m not a fan of the taste. It sort of smells like bacon, but reminds me more of the Bacon Bits dog treats. So therefore, since I don’t like the taste, it keeps me from licking it off constantly. Clever, clever little trick!! Now, I know this one isn’t exactly doctor related, however Loot Crate still wanted to include a few more items sort of as a Valentine’s Gift, which includes this lip balm and one more item. Awwww, thanks Loot Crate!
Tetris Wall Heart – Walls360
Remember the neat little Doodle Jump wall sticker I got back in December? Well, those awesome guys included a Tetris Wall Heart sticker this time for the other Valentine’s gift! While a majority of it is one piece, there is still a separate L-shaped piece that you can stick as far away from the rest of the sticker as you really want. Awesome! And of course, this is also showing the love of a classic game we all know: Tetris! Loot Crate has also decided to throw out a photo contest involving this wall sticker where you put it on something you can’t live without, take a photo and submit it. The winner gets a free 3 month extension on the Loot Crate subscription.
Super awesome right?! Now where should I put it? Portal gun? Motorcycle? XBox?!
Do you have a suggestion on where I can put it? Let me know! Hell maybe I’ll take a bunch of photos based on your suggestions just because I can!!
Well that’s it for the February Loot Crate! As always, the fine team of geeks at Loot Crate’s HQ have outdone themselves once more and I can’t wait to see what’s in store for March!
