Loot Crate Unboxing – August 2014

Hey everyone! It’s time to unbox another great set of swag from Loot Crate!  This month’s theme follows up on last month’s Villains: Heroes.

In support of the new movie by Michael Bay, this crate includes a pretty cool Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles figure with some glow-in-the-dark to it.  It’s a pretty cool looking figure by Kidrobot based on the new series on Nickelodeon.  I haven’t seen any of the new show, but it seems to be doing well for itself.  Personally, I’m a fan of the live-action TMNT movies from the 90’s.  Remember, go ninja, go ninja, go!

Also from TMNT, there are some pretty sweet mask sunglasses from H2W.  Like the figures, they are randomized for each crate, which is a nice touch.  I would have matched the glasses to the figure, but that’s because I got the Leonardo figure, who wears my favorite color, but the Michaelangelo glasses.  But don’t get me wrong, Mikey is hilarious.  I wear perscription glasses, so I may not sport these often, which kind of bums me out.

Another big item this month is a Loot Crate exclusive Funko POP! figure of Groot.  What makes this figure special, is his one arm glows in the dark.  I believe most of you know by now that Groot can release luminescent spores from his left arm.  You guessed it, the figure’s left arm glows in the dark.  I often find these Funko POP! things creepy looking, but Groot will be proudly displayed at my house.

The lightning bolts are a cool shoe accessory by Schwings.  They lace to your shoes and, presumably, help you run faster.  Ok, that second part isn’t true.  However, they are awesome and make you look kind of like the Flash.  I may have to go buy some lace-up shoes again.

One of three different air fresheners from Sega and Epic Scents also comes with the Crate this month.  I go Mega Man, who is scented as Cool Rush.  I like Mega Man, but kind of wish I had gotten the Sonic one.  Growing up, my brother and I would play Sonic 2 for hours on our Sega Genesis.  Although, once we got a PSOne, we did play quite a bit of Mega Man.  My car will soon smell like speed and heroics.

Making a re-appearance from last month, we have some Deadpool swag.  This month, he breaks the fourth wall with a magnet for what is likely his favorite cereal: Chimichang’Os.  Most Deadpool fans should know of the Merc with a Mouth’s love of chimichangas.  This anti-hero-approved magnet will adorn my fridge proudly next to Bowser from last month.

Finally, we have some digital loot.  A card with codes for cool stuff in Doctor Who: Legacy, Defense Grid: The Awakening, and Gauntlet comes to the Loot Craters this month.  With codes for free swag, I may just have to get a Steam account.  I will also have to look into the free Doctor Who: Legacy app, as the code unlocks 11 Doctors, Rose Tyler, Clara, K-9, and more!

All in all, another great month for Loot Crate subscribers.  Let me know which of the Turtles figures and masks you got, along with the air freshener, in the comments below.  If you aren’t signed up for Loot Crate, but think, ‘Yeah, this thing is for me,’ check out their website here.
