LOOTCRATE!!! TIME!!! *Spoilers*

So after taken a few months away from any form of Loot (plus I got burned out on all the shipping issues I was having with a certain company). I went out and got this months LootCrate! This month was Robotic theme and it was amazing :). We have Aliens, Star Wars, Star Trek (I know!! I the same box!!), Blade Runner!! Now that is just the core crate, the DX has far more Loot inside.

Also with the Loot pin I got 3 free digital issues to Servo Magazine, as well as a free Ghost in the Shell comic. Star Trek was also a Loot Crate exclusive comic titled Mirror Broken: Origin of Data. Read and wrote a little something about it and as always the link is at the end of this post.. The Ghost in the Shell comic was interesting… I was worried at first because the cover looked like some 10 years old did it was a MS Paint. But to my surprise the art was great and story plot followed the TV show.

Queen take Bishop :(!! Love this little figure from Aliens, sadly it’s the beginning of the slow death of one of my favorite characters. Still a great collectible, a bitch to put together tho. Not everything was cut right. Blade Runner was a t-shirt with the Wallace company logo on it!! Beyond happy with this one, the only problem I had was the print was stuck together and messed up the logo a little bit. But not to bad, it kinda gave it a vintage look anyways. UPSIDE!! The Loot box makes me laugh. Every LootCrate box can be turn into something else and/or re gifted to someone else. This month was a mock cereal box hahaha, called “Cog Crispies, For Silicon-Based Constructs”. Now for Star Wars!! We have a build your own R2-D2 figure that is made out of wood. I’ll have to post some pictures of R2 once I’m done building it. So that is this months crate!! Hope you enjoyed the spoilers!!LINKS:

Star Trek TNG: Mirror Broken: Origin Of Data ( LootCrate Exclusive)

Star Trek: The Next Generation: Mirror Broken by Scott Tipton, David Tipton with Artist J.K. Woodward. Had 6 issues over all with a preview on Free Comic Book Day. Plot information is:

J.K. Woodward commented: “We are tying this story with the DS9 stories, to smooth over the continuity and tie it all together“.

Scott Tipton commented: “We do play off of the description of the state of the Terran Empire from the DS9 episodes, and explain that all may not have been as people out in deep space believed“. David Tipton commented that the story is: “… also is placed in the context of what we learned about what happened to the Mirror Universe from the Deep Space Nine episodes… when DS9 took on the Mirror Universe, they built up a unique storyline that supported multiple episodes“.

Now with this LootCrate issue Origin of Data, we find Data to be the main focus point here and going from normal machine to a Borg augmented killer. The art work is amazing and the story is is great. They really did a good job at making this a real story line and not some throw away comic. Sadly most trek comics are like that.. But I’m really like the Mirror Broken issues and want to go out and find the rest.
