Subscription Boxes

nb-lootcrate-march-2016-vs While it does little to heal the wounds such conflicts can inflict (we shall all carry the scars of AvP for a long long time,) the March 2016 offering from Loot Crate is a solid one, filled with the usual metric tonne (sorry, there is the Canadian-ness coming out again) of exclusives we’ve grown to expect and love from the world’s leading subscription box service. Check out our video review below (more…)

It’s been awhile since we dived into one of those little black boxes of mystery from Loot Crate (for the uninitiated, Loot Crate is the leading subscription box service where for less than $20USD plus shipping you get a box of geeky little goodies worth at least twice as much) … Sorry, got lost in that pointlessly long parentheses …

Either way, it’s Loot Crate time once more and this month’s theme is ‘DEAD’ promising not only Deadpool (because everything is about Deadpool now,) but The Walking Dead to boot. The box is guaranteed to have not one but two exclusive figures as well as an exclusive T-shirt. Exclusively. McFarlane Toys, Quantum Mechanix, and other supplied the items this month AND to make it a bit easier this time around it’s a video because reading… amiright? (more…)

It’s Loot Crate time again, another mysterious black box has arrived with untold treasures inside. If you are new to this subscription box service thing, once a month (and for less than $20 USD including shipping,) Loot Crate sends you a box of geeky nerdy things all wrapped around a theme. This months theme is #Play, so I guess that’s board games, card games, video games, role-playing games, and anything ‘play’ related.

My expectations are high on this one, the past few crates have been great and with this months theme having a RPG connection I could possibly get the hippogriff I have so desperately wanted after decades of playing D&D. Let’s open it up and see! (more…)

LOOT CRATE January 2015 REWIND

Now that 2015 has fully rung itself in, let’s make with something new in the way of an all new Loot Crate! If you haven’t already heard, subscription box services are quickly becoming a popular ‘thing‘ and Loot Crate is arguably one of the more popular ones available. Once a month, and for less than $20 USD including shipping, the guys and gals at Loot Crate fill up a little black box with geeky nerdy little things just for you! Pretty sweet of them if you ask me. Plus, they promise that each box will be of at least $40 USD in value!

Now, before you grumble about how they clearly sent this to me for free, (and I will obviously say nice fluffy, buttery things about them for doing that) they didn’t. I am paying for this service, so my twenty bucks (well… more like $30 since I am a Canadian, but anyway,) my cash is on the line just like yours. Did January’s Loot Crate satiate my nerdy cravings? Will I find what my geeky heart desires? Let’s open the thing up and see… (more…)
