Loot Crate Unboxing – November 2014

It’s another Loot Crate Unboxing!  November has some pretty awesome stuff to fit into the theme: Battle!

November 2014 Loot Crate stuff!
November 2014 Loot Crate stuff!

Let’s start with the obvious first piece: the Ninjas vs Pirates t-shirt from Zen Monkey Studios.  This is an awesome shirt! It depicts that age-old battle betwixt the sea-faring thieves and sneaky assassins from the East.  Each side of the shirt is comprise of words that tie into their respective side of the debate with words like “plunder,” “avast,” and “doubloon” for the pirates and “clan,” “sensei,” and “legend” for the ninjas.  Which side are you on?

Next we have a coin from the Brotherhood from Ubisoft’s hit series Assassin’s Creed, as a tie-in for their newest game, Assassin’s Creed IV: Unity.  It even includes a space on one side to engrave your name on it, to make is one of the most personal items Loot Crate has sent out to the Looters!

You probably noticed the Mega Man helmet in that picture too.  It’s a great display piece from CAPCOM.  Looters had a random chance of one of four colors, and I was lucky enough to get my preferred color: classic blue.  Blue just happens to be my favorite color, so this was perfect for me.

We also got a Halo mini figure from MEGA BLOKS.  I’ll admit, I’m a LEGO guy, myself.  However, Halo is such a quintessential part of gaming and battles, that I’m very happy to see this in the crate.

There’s also another bit of classic fighter gaming in the crate: Ryu’s headband!  It’s a great headband that sports the logo of the always popular Street Fighter video game series, also from CAPCOM.  I may have to figure a way to use this in a cosplay.

Again this month we see some cool digital downloads.  We have a code for 50% off Lichdom: Battlemage on Steam, a full download of Street Fighter IV Super Arcade Version from Steam, and a couple digital Mega Man comics.  There’s also a cool way to turn the crate itself into a fight scene, including little stand-up figures of kind-of Mega Man and kind-of Ryu.

What was your favorite part of the November crate?

Loot Crate Unboxing – October 2014

Hello there!  Welcome to my Loot Crate unboxing post!  Today, I’m looking at the October crate.  The theme: Fear.

Scary good stuff this month! Picture by me.

The ‘Death by Kitten’ t-shirt is a fun addition to this month’s crate.  It’s not overly fear-inducing, but it is comfortable.  The design is by Super 7 and features a bunch of cat pictures grouped together to form a skull.  I thought at first glance that it glowed in the dark.  Sadly, it does not.  It’s still a cool shirt, though.

A fun little bonus item this month is a piece of Toxic Waste sour candy.  You may notice that mine is not in the picture.  That’s because I already let my wife eat it.  She said it was very sour, which means she must have liked it. (She likes sour candy a lot.)

Up next, we have the Dead Rising 3 Sledgesaw Hammer pen from CAPCOM and Loot Crate Labs.  It’s a very well done little piece that’s lighter than it looks.  The saw section is removed from the end of the hammer to make use of the pen.  It should do a fine job of killing the zombies it draws (in the action I see in my head).

I will admit that I have never seen the astoundingly popular Sharknado movie.  It honestly sounds like a waste of my time to me.  But, I have thumbed through the book How to Survive a Sharknado and Other Unnatural Disasters from Random House Publishing in this month’s crate.  It is quite the amusing read.  From descriptions of the cataclysms, to the made-up ‘studies’ documenting how to deal with each event, the book is at times entertaining, but does lead to a lot of face-palming.

There’s another exclusive cover comic in this month’s crate: Issue #132 of The Walking Dead.  It features what appears to be a zombie woman, in a loot crate tank or sports bra.  Since I have not actually read any of the comics, nor seen any of season 4 of 5, I will probably hold off on reading this for a while.  However, I do look forward to reading it.

Sticking with The Walking Dead, there’s a cool postcard-sized piece of art with Daryl and Merle Dixon from SuperEmoFriends by JSalvador.  It depicts Daryl just after finding his brother as a walker, Evil Dead hand and all.  It has a fairly calm look about it, which is a far cry from the action- and suspense-packed show.  A very nice piece of art.

Speaking of biting, there are some pretty gnarly looking bites and slashes temporary tattoos from Loot Crate Labs in this crate.  I’m not sure when I’ll use them, as it’s been many moons since I wore temporary tattoos.  But I’m sure they’ll come in handy some day.

We also have another special unlock for the game Smite, from Super7.  I’ve never played this game, or even heard of it, but the download looks pretty cool.  It lets you unlock a character called Thanatos and a special Jack the Ripper skin for him.  He looks pretty awesome, not gonna lie.

That pretty much wraps up this treasure trove of death and scary.  I did get one other thing of a personal nature: my official Loot Crate Member card and ID#! Woo-hoo!  Let me know what you think of this month’s crate in the comments below.
