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 🙂
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.
