I recently wrote to Loot Crate
telling them to give me stuff asking if I could kindly be allowed to review one of their boxes. Well, yesterday, lo and behold, the Heroes box shows up and kicked me in the dick with its awesomeness.
First thing I noticed: the LootCrate exclusive glow-in-the-dark Groot bobble head from perennial checking-account leeches Funko. Gone are the days of screaming at my garden to start dancing when I play the Jackson 5.
Kid Robot joined in on the Turtles-Fest with a sweet (and also glow-in-the-dark) Raphael figurine. Since brooding sewer mutants aren’t particularly my jam, I have a feeling I have a going away present for my boss…
The Sonic The Hedgehog air freshener smells a bit too much like middle-schoolers experimenting with Axe for my taste, but after yesterday’s post-barbacoa fart fest on my drive home, it was a welcome reprieve.
There’s some digital exclusives for the gamers of the world, too. Gauntlet and some Dr. Who thingie download codes are cool, but my lack of hand-eye coordination has made me gaming-averse. They’re just on a piece of paper, so I didn’t bother with a picture.
Overall, I am massively impressed with the killer swag that LootCrate has tossed together. If you are a nostalgia nerd, toy fiend, or just generally like cool shit, you should be all about this.
