Oh Loot Crate….

So. I figured I’d give Loot Crate another try.. This time I ordered 3 different creates for Unboxing. Last time I ordered anything from them, shipping was WAY OFF! Plus with missing items, no refund, zero reply from customer service.. One would think I would just walk away at this point. But these creates were just too good to pass up. Plus I got some rather big discounts on them.

So with this looking hopeful, shipping now has a delay.. This is the email that was sent to me. If anyone gets loot crate, pay attention.

Due to unforeseeable reasons, we may ship a crate later than expected. Check the chart below for your new estimated shipping. This page will be updated as new information becomes available.

After the completion of each sales period, if a crate is On Time then it will be removed from this list. If there are updates to the ship date, it will remain listed until it has shipped.

I mean I get it, things happen. But give their history with me, can’t help but worry haha. The crate I placed orders for are Fallout Crate, Core Loot Crate, Anime Crate. Guess we’ll see which one gets here first.

Year End Review…. 2017

Yep…. Every year i do an year end review on everything to do with my blog, podcasts, life over all… This GIF of Captain Kirk fits everything for 2017… This year as been so up and down, mostly left over from the chaos that was 2016. I think this is the lowest the numbers have ever been. Of course I’ve done like ZERO writing or posting of anything for that matter. The website/blog was even shut down for a month. Wizard World media coverage was a bust, I have all these pictures and stories. Just never did anything with them sadly. I had another book challenge for Star Wars. Fail… Nothing worked out at all this year the way it was meant to.

I think the only thing that was active over this period of time was my Twitter and Instagram and the numbers there show a massive spike. So that is one positive there and I thank you guys!! Oh one other thing is I did start podcasting again!! Rejoining the team Geek Fallout, I plan I taking part a lot more podcasts with these guys. So having said all that, my plans for 2018 that are currently lined up are this:

  • Podcasting with Geek Fallout and Trek1701
  • Wizard World coverage and Comic Con media coverage over all in Oregon
  • Unboxings for GeekFuel and LootCrate or whatever else comings in
  • Book and comic book, movie reviews
  • A more scheduled writing and posting timeline

I really need to get back to what makes me happy. This blog has always been a part of me and would hate to see it go down in flames like this.  I’m also shutting down the Twitter feed for Nerdy Life Of Mine, and have everything go through my personal account. Keeps things easy and that way I’m not all spread out everywhere. As of right now the only social media outs for NLOM are:

That’s where I plan on keeping it till otherwise. So i would like to thank you for sticking around and making NLOM possible. I know I’ve lost a number of readers/followers over this year. I just hope I’ll be able to get them back. Have a happy and safe New YEARS!!  May you be in Heaven a full half hour before the Devil knows you’re dead. Happy New Years!!

 

November Loot Crate In December

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…

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.

October’s Loot Crate!

October’s Loot Crate!

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…

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.

GeekFuel Unboxing & More

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 🙂
