Hi guys! Sorry for the delay on this one. I happened to get my Loot Crate RIGHT before Amazing Arizona Comicon and I’m just now waking up from my con coma and getting over my post-con depression; if you’ve been to any comic conventions you can relate.
Anyway! Onto the Loot Crate review! If you happened to spot my (ridiculously lame) unboxing video, you already know what I got! If you haven’t, well click THIS LINK and feel free to laugh at my awkwardness in this video. I know I am.
Also, I kind of ate and drank two of the items in the crate and threw them away before I got a chance to take pictures because DUMB NICHOLE IS DUMB AND NOT THINKING. DERP. So this review is going to be pictureless, unless I can snag my friend’s loot crate items and snag pictures of those!
ON TO THE ITEMS:
Marvel Workmans Carry All – Marvel
Based on other unboxing videos, it seems there were a variety of Marvel tins. I happened to get an Amazing Spiderman tin based on the newest movie. For those of you that had seen my unboxing video, by the way, I am very aware of the fact that I sang the Batman theme song with Spiderman. If you think I’m dumb, well I HAVE OUTSMARTED YOU!!! I was thinking of the Family Guy scene where Peter was on the clothesline roleplaying with Lois. You know! This scene!
Anyway! The tin is awesome and looks a little durable. I’m considering whether or not to use this as my lunchbox at work to make everyone jealous; or maybe they would just know immediately who would own such a silly little tin with Spiderman on it. It also happens to have a decent amount of space, as you probably noticed when I was pulling everything out of it in the video. Winning!
Translucent 7 Dice RPG Set – AwesomeDice.com + Chessex
So I thought this was pretty damn awesome, and I don’t even play RPG board games! These apparently come in quite an array of colors on their site at awesomedice.com and after seeing that they came in purple, I totally wish I had gotten that one! However, my set was black and it’s awesome. What comes in the set is:
- 4-sided die
- 6-sided die
- 8-sided die
- 10-sided die
- 12-sided die
- 20-sided die
- Percentile 10-sided die
For the time, I am displaying them on my desk next to my Honey Badger. Perhaps I will hold these off for a giveaway later on, if that’s something you guys might be interested in!
8 Bit Zombie Power Pack – 8BitZombie.com
So, since I didn’t open these on video, I did manage to take a picture of the stickers and pin outside of the package to show you all the epicness that is contained. When I saw these things, I thought they were pretty damn awesome! It also got me curious as to what 8-bit Zombie was about, so it brought me to their site. Basically the site is dedicated to nostalgia of the 80’s. Now the 80’s was – admittedly – before my time, however I can still appreciate some 8-bit goodness! The site is pretty neat and their shop is full of awesome swag! Needless to say, these stickers will be going on random things I own (more than likely my binder for school). The pins are also pretty badass, one of them being their logo, and the other being literally an 8-bit Zombie.
Hello Panda Snacks – Meiji
Everyone can appreciate snacks from the asian culture, and this one is no exception! Hello Panda snacks are small, crunchy “biscuits” filled with chocolatey goodness. When you first bite into it, you get that nice crunch, then the chocolate gushes out and sends your taste buds into a chocolate coma. On the postcard from Loot Crate, they challenged us to not eat the whole box in one sitting. I failed that challenge. But I do not feel bad about that at all. It was so worth it.
A few weeks before the January crate shipped, Loot Crate sent out an offer to upgrade their looters to a 3-month or 6-month subscription with a little discount and free items from previous loot crates. I took advantage and upgraded my 1-month to a 3-month subscription. So in turn, I got these two extra items!
Super Mario Bros. Power Up Energy Drink – Nintendo
I saved this baby for Amazing Arizona Comicon this past weekend since, when you attend a con, you are likely to be waking up early and getting home late. I was a little worried that the drink wouldn’t taste too well, since there aren’t really very many energy drinks out there that I like. WRONG. This drink was freaking AWESOME. It had a little bit of a sweeter, raspberry-like taste and it was lightly carbonated. It contains 50 mgs of caffeine, which is less than my usual energy drink, but I still noticed a small difference in my energy level. It may have helped that I had hit a wall and was seriously needing a pick-me-up. This definitely helped. Only downside? I only got one and WANTED MORE. I know these are available at Hot Topic in single cans but I will be keeping my eye out for packs of them if I can!
The Legend of Zelda Mints
The mints inside are your usual little tiny peppermints (which I eat like candy so I’m surprised I haven’t eaten all of them yet). The tin, however, is in the shape of Link’s shield. It’s pretty detailed for a little mint case and I love it! Once the mints are gone, I’ll more than likely clean it off and use it for something else! Maybe a little storage for a necklace or earrings!
That’s it for the January Loot Crate! As always, these guys do an amazing job at putting together crates full of awesome items from pop culture, games, comic books, and anything else you can think of! The fact that they have snacks and drinks to share with you is also pretty epic. Can’t wait for the next one!
