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 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:
Time for some random Star Wars picture and what not!!
So my R2 unit came today! Yay! This was an early birthday gift to myself 🙂
I’ll have stick him next to Vader in my car. Hopefully there it’s room.
