Loot Crate Unboxing – April 2015

Hello, readers!  Welcome to another Loot Crate Unboxing post!  The April box has some great stuff to fit into the theme: Fantasy.  Let’s dive in, shall we?

April Loot Crate - Theme: Fantasy.
April Loot Crate – Theme: Fantasy.

First up, we have another shirt in this month’s crate.  Loot Crate Labs teamed up with one of the biggest names in fantasy for the last 40 years: Wizards of the Coast!  This awesome Dungeons & Dragons shirt is a Looter Exclusive and officially licensed.  I can only hope it brings me luck when I cast my d20 at my next game.

Next up, we have a cool luggage tag from BIOWORLD.  The tag features the signature train platform number from which departs the bright red Hogwarts Express! This is a brilliant nod to the books and movies for Potter Heads who frequently travel.  It’s too bad that you can’t put this on your luggage as it’s bound for the legendary school for witches and wizards.

Our next item is perhaps the most novel of novelty items I have received from Loot Crate thus far.  The Loot Crate Labs scientists have brought us… an inflatable crown!  Huzzah!  Now I can be the King of the castle whenever I want!  Seriously though, I audibly chuckled when I pulled this from my crate.

Another tie! This time, though, it’s a bow tie. You know, because bow ties are cool. This pre-tied bow tie features dragons and d20s on a field of red.  A silk tie from Spotted & Tied, this is a great addition to every dapper geek’s or geek-ette’s wardrobe.

You want some playing cards? No problem.  You want specialty playing cards themed after a beloved love story of inconceivable intrigue, pirates, and rodents of unusual size?  As you wish.  Loot Crate teamed up with Albino Dragon this month to bring us a beautifully illustrated deck of The Princess Bride playing cards.  Just be sure to skip over the mushy stuff and play poker or war.

Rounding out this crate is a pair of items from everyone’s favorite “all the characters die” television show and book series: Game of Thrones.  First, we have a USB drive in the shape of House Stark’s dire wolf sigil.  A surprisingly intricate design from CustomUSB, this drive should be a good place to store the list of people you’re going to kill or keep your map to the Godswood north of the Wall.  Second, we have a set of house sigil magnets for Houses Stark, Lannister, Baratheon, and Targaryen, along with their words.  These, along with the show’s title magnet, are a fine addition to the other magnets from Loot Crate already adorning my fridge.

What was your favorite thing in this month’s crate?  Have you made use of the bow tie yet?  Let me know in the comments!  As always, thanks for stopping by!
