I’m back again with my second unboxing, for July 2014’s Loot Crate. If you read my first unboxing post in June, you know I was a little nervous about signing up for LC, and a bit disheartened that my first, birthday month crate was “Transform” themed. Now, I’m not a huge fan of Transformers, if memory serves you, but I wasn’t completely disappointed with June’s box. I loved the shirt, and wear it all the time! Imagine how excited I was when they rolled out the theme for July, and it was “Villains.” I’m going to tell you a little something about me; I love bad things. Bad boys, bad girls, bad weather, bad movies, bad music, etc. In a word, this theme was perfect for me. The teasers for this month were insane, with an alleged value of $40 worth of swag in July’s box, and a limited LC exclusive edition variant cover for Marvel’s Rocket Raccoon. LC pulled out all the stops with advertising, and everyone was waiting with bated breath for the email confirming their box was on the way to them, including moi. Without further ado, let’s see “WHAT’S IN THE BOX?!” (Here’s to you, Kevin Spacey) July 2014 Loot Crate: “VILLAINS!”
First of all, the box was bigger this month! Very exciting!
Upon opening, we see the adorable, highschool, sharpie-esque doodles, done by the “villains” who apparently put the box together and saw fit to vandalize it.
First off, we have a lovely Joker and Harley Quinn Poster that I cannot wait to get framed and hang up in my home.
Then, we have one of the big sells for July’s crate, the limited LC exclusive edition variant cover for Marvel’s Rocket Raccoon, which I will never ever ever take out of the sleeve.
Very, very, happy about the Deadpool Socks! I’m already a cute sock addict, and LC is feeding that.
Cute, but will probably end up in my loot at the next convention swap meet I go to, A Darth Vader keychain.
Necessary Evil DVD, a documentary narrated by Christopher Lee, “that explores the villains of the DC Universe…”
Love this, love this, love this Bowser Magnet! (We know you do, Bowser)
We’ve got the LC monthly zene with cute cover and back, (I prefer the back because #loki) and the monthly collectible LC pin.
Oh, you thought I was done? OF COURSE I’M NOT DONE, YOU FOOLS! On to the July Crate’s Magnum Opus, THE JOKI SHIRT!!!!
“Why so burdened with glorious purpose?”
I am beyond happy with this shirt, and it definitely gets preference over the Marty McPrime shirt from June’s crate! I’ve always been fond of The Joker, (is their any villain lover who isn’t?) However, if you know me, you know I am in love with Loki. Like, I have a commissioned picture of him and a Lego Loki keychain on my car keys, in love, and while that may pale in comparison to most fangirls’ adoration of him, I’m a 24 year-old adult, and that’s all of the obsession over a fictional character I’m willing to publicly own up to. Obviously, I’m extremely pleased with the theme, the crate, the everything! Loot Crate did not disappoint with all of the ad pushing and promotional teasers. Next Month’s theme has already been revealed to be “Heroes,” and I hope they blow it all out of the water in August just like they did in July!
