Loot Crate Futuristic

This month July's Loot Crate theme was futuristic, and I got the crate a few weeks ago but haven't really had the time to write about it until now as the technology to stop time has not been created yet. Unfortunately this technology was also not in the crate. However what was in the crate were a few things which delighted the hell out of me which I will talk about later. First I want to address what disappointed me this time around the box and magazine. Usually these are as good if not better than the loot itself which goes to show the time and effort that the team at Loot Crate usually put into all parts of their crates. However I believe this time around they let the ball drop with the crate and the magazine so they ...

GISHWHES gone rogue

So the week of GISHWHES which I told you about previously is finally over and I can finally relax go back to my normal level of stress and lack of sleep (yeah I didn't really think through how much I'd need to do) but not before I tell you a bit about what I got up to. This was my first GISHWHES and it was certainly memorable, stressful, fun, crazy and totally right up my alley. I'll probably end up doing it again next year! The tasks this year didn't quite reach 200 but were approximately 179 with some being taken out due to being too crazy or to be sensitive to certain incidents. The majority of the tasks can be seen below and as you can see were more than a little bit impossible...or so you'd think. I ...

Gishwhes

Big news! I've been drafted into Gishwhes like thousands of others around the world. Basically it’s a massive scavenger Hunt that takes place July 30th – August 6th. People compete from all over the world, creating weird and beautiful “art” online and in the world, doing crazy fun activities, but most importantly; committing heartwarming acts of kindness. g.i.s.h.w.h.e.s. stands for the Greatest International Scavenger Hunt the World Has Ever Seen and is a 7-time Guinness World Record breaking scavenger hunt hosted by Misha Collins otherwise known as Castiel from Supernatural. Thousands of participants from more than 100 countries build their own teams with friends or are placed on 15-person teams (of new friends!) and for one week, through laughter, sweat and tears (of joy of course), they acquire Items on a fun, inspiring ...

Marvel Collector Corps

It's hard to believe that it's been a year since I started getting these but it has. I only set out to do it for a year so that I could get additional POP's other than the one I really wanted which was the Hulkbuster and for for the most part I've been impressed by the POP's that I've got out of it. However I started to run out of room quite quickly as I was also getting Loot Crate's so...something had to give and I officially cancelled my Collector Corps subscription. I would fully recommend the "mystery box" to any Marvel fans out there who love POP's too, however if you like a little mystery around what the boxes will include then you may be looking at the wrong one. They usually provide exclusive Marvel merchandise not available ...

So...it's been a while since I've posted anything, not because I haven't wanted to but because I was forced to concentrate on other things as my life descended more into a time poor chaotic mess more than it usually is. As a result I'm going to have to post 3 times a week approximately until the end of the year to meet the usual 100 post target (which I met last year too). I'm pretty confident I can hit that target now that the majority of the events that took up a chunk of my time are out of the way and with events for me to blog about coming up which I will be posting about later tonight. Surprise, surprise I am still massively behind my TV & movie watching and I'm still trying to make ridiculously complicated ...

Dystopia

It feels appropriate that post Brexit I get to review the latest Loot Crate which has the theme of Dystopia. With everyone in the world feeling the effects of the results of the vote it truly is a bit of a dystopian world, dare I say it...the darkest timeline. However ignoring my country's impending doom the crate had a great selection of loot from franchises including; biotic, Terminator, Fallout and of course The Matrix. Starting with the crate it is a thing of beauty creating a picturesque albeit bleak backdrop for looters to take pictures of their loot against. As always it is a simple DIY job for looters who just have to take apart their box to discover the backdrop. This is a feature I truly love about Loot Crates, the fact that they make their packaging works ...
