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