Anti-Hero - Loot Crate Reveal
Loot Crate is one of the leading companies that provides monthly subscriptions where you can collect all kinds of fantastic, and often exclusive, Geek themed memorabilia. One of the fantastic things about this service is that the crate you receive each month has a specific theme, and that you will never receive the same items twice. This month, in part to honor the release of the movie Suicide Squad, the theme is Anti-Hero so you can probably expect to see at least one Harley Quinn item along with several other unbelievable items that you will just love.
The first thing that you will notice when you receive your monthly Loot Crate is that it comes in a distinctive, though rather discreet, box. Receiving this unassuming box each month is almost like receiving a birthday or Holiday present every month. While it may not be known exactly what will be included in each month’s Crate, it is almost certain that it will contain items that you cannot (and will not be able to) receive anywhere else. Generally speaking, this box is not particularly large, in fact it is often small enough to fit within a standard mailbox. The cost for the Core Crate is as low as $14.00 a month, and lower if you use the link below. Considering that you will receive a minimum of $50.00 worth of items in each package, it is well worth the subscription. Careful when you open the box though, since you will need it to make something rather special later on.
Even if you were able to go online to see what the theme for the month is (in this case Anti-Hero), you don’t get to really know what you are getting until you open the crate. Considering that all you can really see when you open this month’s crate is the t-shirt you get, you are still left to wonder what is coming next. So, without further ado…let’s dig into the crate and see what else we get.
Sterling Archer is one rather unforgettable character, and almost the very epitome of suave and debonair. This long running cartoon from FX just hit its 10th season, and is pretty much the perfect satire of the British 007 spy series. Between the superbly written story lines and the recurring running gags (i.e., Danger Zone) it makes perfect sense that this show is still going strong and is so popular. Celebrate this amazing television show, and rather comedic political season, by wearing this stylish t-shirt. Considering the wide selection in sizes, you will definitely have fun not only setting a trend but also making a statement about your presidential choices the next time you head out.
Kill Bill Vol. 1
While it has been over a decade since The Bride danced her deadly waltz across the screen in the Quentin Tarantino classic, Kill Bill vol 1. Beatrix (a.k.a., The Bride) had a rather fantastic sense of style, and what better way to celebrate that style than to done these wonderful looking socks? These unique socks were designed exclusively by Loot Crate Labs, for this month’s Core Crate to help honor one of the most beloved of the anti-heroes in recent cinematic history. While you may not look like Uma Thurman, these socks will definitely give you a leg up in the confidence area when you wear them. You have gotta love that!
Since the first time that she made her appearance in a 1992 episode of Batman: The Animated Series called “Joker’s Favor,” Harley Quinn has been one of the most popular villains in the DC Universe. Is there really anyone that is as insanely lovable as Harley? This quixotic character is not exactly your traditional anti-hero, in that she readily goes about being a villain whenever her “Puddin’” (a.k.a., The Joker) or her best friend Poison Ivy happens to be around. However, when these rather negative influences are removed she often tries to do her best to do good…even if it is in a slightly wacky way. Well, with this great looking Q-Fig by Quantum Mechanix has Harley Quinn modeling her original look…which may just be her best look ever.
The next item in the Anti-Hero crate is a bank that you can place on your desk or dresser to help protect your loose change. Hellboy is probably one of the most remarkable, and intimidating, examples of an Anti-Hero around. After all, what else would you call someone who literally has the Right Hand of Doom which can bring about Armageddon. While Hellboy may not be the nicest of guys around (the big loveable lug that he is), even he wants to keep the world turning. It’s for this reason that he is trying to keep himself kicking so that no one can take the Hand and start the end times themselves. Whether you want to use this bank to collect your money, or place it in pride of place, you will be happy that you did.
Every month Loot Crate provides a new and one of a kind collectible pin that you will not find anywhere else. This month you got a pin celebrating Sylvanas Windrunner and the World of Warcraft. This character has a long and storied career where she went from the Ranger-General of Silvermoon, to being a tortured prisoner of the Lich King, to becoming the Banshee Queen of the Forsaken. What better way to celebrate this wonderful Anti-Hero by taking advantage of the $20.00 retail value of the DLC that you get with the unique password that comes along with the pin. With this month’s code you receive all six of the expansions (World of Warcraft, Burning Crusades, Wrath of the Lich King, Cataclysm, Mists of Pandaria, and Warlords of Draenor), and a 30-day subscription or game time. Whether acting “For the Glory of the Alliance,” or you are more “For the Horde,” you will have a ton of fun creating your own story and legacy by joining in today.
Loot Crate Magazine
One item that you will get each month is a copy of the Loot Crate Magazine. This particular item, while similar, is also rather unique each moth as well. This magazine not only contains a little extra information about each of the items that are included in the crate. In this particular month’s issue, there are two things that you will want to pay particular attention to. The first thing that you will want to pay attention to is an article about three of the women that belong to The Suicide Squad which don’t get a whole lot of attention: Dr. Amanda Waller, Katana, and Enchantress. The second part of the magazine that you will want to take a particular look at is a preview of DC’s Suicide Squad: Rebirth #1, as well as a special redeemable code so you can download a free digital copy of the entire comic. You have gotta love that! Personally, I just love the rendition of both Dr. Amanda Waller, an Dr. Harleen Quinzel.
Remember when I said earlier to be careful with the shipping box? The reason for this is that you can make something special out of the box each and every month. Typically, the crate can be turned into a diorama that you can use to play with your new toys. However, this the box turns into something a little different. Instead of a diorama, this month the box turns into your own version Harley Quinn’s hammer, as modeled by iGeekOut’s very own Anti-Hero – trust us, she has been putting that hammer to almost as good use as Harley would herself.
As a company, Loot Crate is an organization that looks to truly provide the fan with some exclusive items that simply cannot be found anywhere else. Simply put, Loot Crate is a service that every true Geek needs to take a long and hard look at, in large part since it is a service that will allow you to add to your growing collection of Geek Gear.
