Loot Crate Unboxing – July 2015

Hello readers, and welcome to another Loot Crate Unboxing!  This is the start of my second year subscribing to Loot Crate, and it starts off with their first sequel theme: Heroes 2.  Let’s see what we’ve got, shall we?

July 2015: Heroes 2
July 2015: Heroes 2

First up this month, a great mash up poster of Wonder Woman and the famous ‘We Can Do It’ poster from the World War II era.  The artwork is fantastic and a great style emulation of the old pin-up posters.  This will look great with my other Loot Crate posters above my computer desk.

Next, we have an awesome sweatband from Bioworld featuring a well-known symbol: The Tri-Force Eagle.  The stitching is very well done and looks to be very sturdy.  I imagine this would survive a lot of gym visits and washings… if I went to the gym.  Regardless, it’s quite comfortable.

Now we come to the first piece of loot tied to everyone’s favorite dark knight.  The Batman Multi-Tool Keychain is an item worthy of the utility belt itself.  The center is a bottle opener and each wing has a screwdriver head on it, with a Phillips on one and a flathead on the other.  I will be adding this to my keyring ASAP.

We have a hardcover book that is probably one of my favorite pieces of loot to date.  The League of Regrettable Superheroes is a most entertaining book.  It highlights some of the most ridiculous and crap-tastic superheroes of the Golden, Silver, and Modern Ages of comics.  You have to make an effort to read about some of these ‘superheroes’ at your earliest convenience.  You won’t be disappointed.

For our second piece of Dark Knight loot, we have a small statue from Quantum Mechanix of an Adam West-style Batman on a building gargoyle.  It’s a sizable statue, with very true-to-the-show colors.  This will make a great display piece in the nerd den (my living room).

We also have another game download for a game I’ve never heard of.  Brawlhalla, sounds like a game for the gods.  Just the name implies that it holds epic battles between various and sundry heroes (and possibly villains).  I will have to look into this game, that is likely popular, given it’s inclusion in this crate.

Lastly, we have a new air freshener for the car.  This time, a Star Trek theme, with Spock’s trademark hand gesture.  I find this tugs at my heart a little more, given Leonard Nimoy’s passing a few months back.  This is going in my car immediately, joining my MegaMan and Captain America, both of which have run out of scent at this point.

There we have it.  Another great box of stuff from the Loot Masters at Loot Crate.  What was your favorite piece of loot this month?  Mine was definitely the League of Regrettable Superheroes.  Tell me yours in the comments below!

Uber Nerd Update

Greetings all!  I meant to post this picture a while back, but have been having computer problems.  I made these as part of what I previously called my Uber Nerd cosplay.  I have since decided to change the name to Geek Supreme.  I like the sound of it better than Uber Nerd.  It just seems to roll off the tongue more easily.  Anyway, I made these using Perler beads.  The mushrooms and star I actually found the patterns for online, but the rupees are my own design.  I combined a couple different ideas for the mushrooms to give them a good feel, color wise.  Also, I used the more translucent beads for the rupees to give them a gemstone-like quality.  Have you ever made anything with Perler beads?  Was it nerdy?  Or have I inspired you?  Whatever your thoughts on this topic, please let me know in the comments below!  Thanks for taking the time!

Hey, Listen!

I posted this ‘about me’ sort of thing over at Quaintjeremy’s Thoughts. I am starting as a contributor there and felt this an adequate way to verify my nerd credit.  Be sure to check out the the Thoughts for other great nerd postings!

My Editor-In-Chief has asked that I give you all a sort of “about me” blog entry.  Well, here it goes.

I’m 26 years old and have lived in Indiana all my life.  I have been married for nine months to my wonderful wife, who is pregnant with our first child!  Like the EIC, I attended Wabash College.  Unlike the EIC, I do not have a Bachelor of Arts in English.  My degree is in German.  I have never really had any idea what to do with it, as I was not an exceptional German student.  None the less, I have managed to survive pretty well so far.

My nerd credentials are somewhat extensive.  Star Wars was my first science fiction memory and love.  I couldn’t have been much older than 8 when I first saw A New Hope, in its original release edit.  We were over to dinner at…
