Nerdy crap delivered to my door every month for a relatively cheap price?! Yes please.
LootCrate somehow came up with the brilliant idea of creating a service that finds cool stuff to please the geek in all of us and ships it directly to our doors. Each monthly box has a theme that you know ahead of time, but the items inside are a surprise. This month’s theme is “animate”. This crate contained…
-a TMNT Donatello POP! Vinyl
-Plush Stimpy that talks and farts. Fuck yeah. (could have been Ren)
-Family lip balm (could have been Yoshi)
-Random Simpson’s keychain (I got Bart, could have been Futurama)
-“It’s over 9000!” wall decal. I promptly put this on the wall over my toilet.
-A PokeAwesome Sticker
-Stormtrooper x TMNT magnet
Overall the quality of the items is pretty good. Monthly crates say they start at under $14, but add in all that shipping business it turns out to be more like $18. Not too bad. Even if you don’t like everything, chances are you will enjoy most of it. And hey, take those items you don’t want and give them to your nerdy friends. Maybe they will forgive you for upperdecking their toilet. At least that’s what I’m hoping!
Somehow LootCrate knew…
The box was absolutely packed.
The Konami Code? I hope that’s a hint at the next crate…
