So while I did enjoy the items in the box. I feel it wasn’t worth $50.00. I’ve had Loot Crates or Geek Fuel boxes that are $25.00 or $30.00 at that chad better items in it and more. I think I had a problem with is how the box was setup. It’s a rather large box and when you open it, you see all the items upfront. A lanyard, small pillow key chain thing, belt, wallet, tie. Under these cool items was a white divider that took up more than half the box, making it look like there was more in there. NOPE…That was it..
Now like I said, I liked the loot, just don’t think it was work $50.00… Now we as got a free mystery box after buying Rick and Morty and Harry Potter Loot Crates. It was a one itme box and this one had Marvel socks (Dr. Strange theme).
No there are a number loot boxes all over Comic Con. Just rethink the Harry Potter crate.
So in September’s LootCrate I got a wooden R2-D2 that you can put together.. It is now January 13th 2018 and I’m just putting it together.. Yeah I know, took my sweet time hahaha. Here is the link to September’s LootCrate: https://nerdylifeofmine.com/2017/09/23/lootcrate-time-spoilers/. Just in case you want to see what else came in the Crate.
The whole thing was rather fun to put together. Rather easy as well. The only problem I ran into was making the top parts fit. I found myself cutting down some of the wood to make them fit better. Aside from that I’m happy with it, was thinking about painting it.. Maybe another time I will do that. (Yes that is a Pickle Rick in the background..)
So it’s December…. December 2… I just now got my November Loot Crate…………..
My main problem is their mailing system. Anywho, the theme for November is Unite 2.0. Over all was an okay Crate, not their best Crate. But it was a decent.. We have a Voltron wearable as well as a Funko Pop figure from the Overwatch game. It was the Loot Crate Edition Widowmaker Variant.
Then we have the Justice League of America No. 28 comic, with a certificate of authenticity from DC themselves. You also have your standard Loot Pin with a $10 gift card to VRV Premium. Then we have a Power Ranger figure made by Loot Crate. There are 5 to collect from as well. There is also a TellTale Series of Batman DLC, you get the whole first season. Then you have the comic DLC and you get two issues of Faith and the Future Force. In the end it was over all a good Crate, nothing to write home about. But it’ll make for some good gifts for Christmas.
So here we have October’s Loot Crate.. I almost don’t want to post anything about this month’s crate, because of the frustration and bewilderment… So they take out the monthly payment like they do. Same thing with my housemate… He got his tracking info in the middle of the month and got the crate later that week.. Me on the other hand did not.. Last week of October I emailed customer support inquiring about my crate.
Stating that this is the forth time they haven’t sent me anything and or late. Didn’t hear anything back. Then a email pops up with tracking info. Due to arrive on the 31st… No other notes, no nothing.. So when I finally got the crate, it was rather lackluster.
I mean the Ghostbuster shirt is cool and the Stranger Things figure was awesome. Everything else was meh…
The Buffy bookmark is nice and you have the Thor figure.. I think I’ll save some of this for Christmas. I’m just done with Loot Crate, it’s to up and down now a days. I mean last month’s crate was great and had no problems. But it’s like sliding back into old habits with them this month.
So while trying to relax from a long day at work and now watching Caddyshack. GeekFuel showed up today!!
October Things is the theme this month.
Cool 3D magazine. Only draw back is the glasses don’t fit to well. But over all it’s a nice nostalgic bit. I have to say I love what GeekFuel did with its buttons. The case for the button is a classic VHS “Tales From the Crypt” theme.
Pac-Bat! Fun little magnet set and Eleven waffles. What’s inside waffle box?
Waffle air freshener, awesome Stranger Things coffee cup and……
The shirt is great. I love the art work and the quality is fantastic. Overall I love this month and the day a lot better.
SO! We have September’s GeekFuel box and it did not let me down. Filled with random little goodies from ever fandom. I have to say I like their booklet a lot better than Loot Crates, I don’t know why. I think it’s just has more personal touch rather than trying to sell you again on a crate you just bought. Anywho! We have a super soft shell from Mario Brothers, it’s a tiny pillow thingy and works great on my couch.
Also in memory of Adam West they have a Classic Batman t-shirt which fit perfectly and the print was amazing. This month’s free game was Warden: Melody of the Undergrowth on STEAM. Warden:
Trapped in an ancient forest, a young prince searches for a lost god. Here he befriends the spirit of a young girl and a volatile child, and they quickly find their destinies intertwined. Third-person action-adventure inspired by genre classics of the N64-era.
Not a bad little game and the kids love it. I haven’t played it that much do to Destiny taken up much of my time. They also put a random Mega Construx this month. I got Ripley from Aliens and I had a lot of fun putting it together. Then they their monthly pin, which was Epic Enamels Cartoon Edition. I got Dexter from Dexter’s Laboratory.
Also later on that day while wait for my oldest to get out of Ballet. There is the Lego Shop down the street which is rather dangers for someone like me. But come to find out!! There was SO MUCH MORE than just Legos, it had Star Wars, Harry Potter, Steampunk. A lot of local artists and fellow nerds making things for them. Then I saw their wand section and had to get Snape’s wand. A small birthday gift to myself 🙂
I know I’m more than a little late posting about last months GeekFuel Box. I was just going to skip posting about it because of the amount of time that has past. Plus if you follow me on Twitter and Instagram I kinda shared everything in the box already haha. I started getting GeekFuel because I was growing tired of LootCrate’s services. Between shipping, payments, credits, the list goes on.. But as you can tell I gave them another changes this month. It gave me some hope.. Some.. But before all that, GeekFuel gave me a really good deal on their Mystery Box. I have to say that I’m hooked and really like where they are going with everything. Their customer service is great and fast to fix any problems you have or answer any question.
I was also amazed at the loot inside their boxes. I did get this month’s GeekFuel and that should be here at the 28th (Friday) end of day.. At least that’s what the magical FedEx fairy tells me. So with that coming, I thought I would share everything from last month’s box. So enjoy!!
Any Back to the Future item is loved. Something I grow up watching over and over again. I know the tag is meant of suitcases. But I had to use in my messenger bag and it works so well haha.
Baby Groot!!!!! Favorite thing out of this whole box. He currently has a nice little home right on top of my computer.
The last couple of items in the box were WonderWoman themed. The shirt fits great and I love it. I don’t think I ever found a shirt with WonderWoman on it for a male. Most of it has be female based. My little girl has way more WonderWoman stuff than I do haha. The pins are interesting, I guess there is a series of buttons each month. It’s a random pin in each box, so I got WonderWoman and the next could be Batman.Now the Box did come with a free game code for Steam and that seems to be a staple in every box so far. You also get a news letter and comic book.
Once the new GeekFuel arrives on Friday I’ll share with you all!!
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: 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.
