Unboxing: Super Friends

*Update: I just found I got my Crates mixed up. It seems Loot Crate system is normally a month behind. This Crate is Super Friends theme. Not Saturday Morning Cartoons… Ugh, so I will change the title of this. August is the Saturday Morning theme. Then the darkness theme.. I just got the next DX Crate today and will post that shortly. Sorry for the mix up! That would explain some of my confusion while opening the Crate. Loot Crate does it again!

We now have the August Crate and the theme is Saturday Morning Cartoons(aka Super Friends)!! At first I was rather meh about the picks for this Crate. Looney Tunes, The Flintstones, Justice League, Pinky and the Brain, The Goodfeathers… While I did watch these as a kids growing up, they weren’t the ones I remember fondly. The ones I really remember were Ghostbusters, Ninja Turtles, Transformers, G.I. Joe. BUT! In the Loot Crate fashion, they shocked me with a rather great Crate.

Like I’ve stated in the past, I have this on going love/hate relationship with Loot Crate. So there are times where I don’t hold my breath for most Crates. But I was rather shocked by this month’s Crate.

Both the shirt and pant are quality and super comfortable. I rather enjoy the DC puzzle, might have to frame that later. The little Wonder Woman cards are a nice touch, the Toy Story bandana… I can take it or leave it. I’ll re-gift it to someone later haha. But over all it was not a bad Loot Crate and I just got the email of next month’s Crate:

Lights out! Go into the DARKNESS with premium pop culture collectibles and gear featuring Black Widow, Venom, Fallout and Beetlejuice!

Still waiting on my Skyrim Crate. That is the one I want the most, sadly it an every 3 months Crate.

Unboxing Loot Crate DX

So after a few months I decided to get the Loot Crate DX. Mostly because it had a Lord of the Rings item within’ the box. For those of you who know, I have a love/hate relationship with Loot Crate. In the process of signing up for another monthly Crate, I found The Skyrim Crate that look rather interesting and got that one as well. but that won’t get here till August-ish..

Now this Crate is from July which I got close to August… I have August’s Crate already and will share that one soon. July’s Crate wasn’t to bad It had:

  • A Shazam enamel pin
  • Lord of the Rings metal “camp style” cup
  • Tetris theme T-shirt
  • Justice League All Stars lunch box
  • A Goonies hat

I have notice that the boxes aren’t as “fun” as they use to be. You use to be able to turn them inside out and a certain theme. I’m thinking it might have something to do with the fact they were bought out by another company. Just another way to save some money I’m guessing.. Over all it was not a bad Crate, I have had better ones in the past. I hope August and Skyrim Crate are better.

Well Look What Showed!

It’s here! Got my core crate today and also got tracking info for my Fallout crate. I’m shocked!I’ll posted the Unboxing here in a bit, I’m just surprised that it came today. I was figuring it would have been month till I got one of the crates.

Loot Crate.. A Monthly Crate…?

Or not…. I have 4 Crates waiting.. I ordered last month and the month before. They just keep pushing the crates back. Even the core crate and that’s a monthly. If your going to be in this kinda business, you have to make sure everything is ready. Damn… I get sometimes things are not up to standard and need to be fixed. But to push things out to another month or two. Ugh.. They better be worth it once they get here…

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…

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 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…
