Today was the big day. After months of watching with nerdy jealousy as my friends posted pictures of their awesome loot crates on facebook, my husband surprised me with a monthly Loot Crate subscription just in time for me to receive the August 2014 Heroes box. Hints of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Guardians of the Galaxy loot had me as excited as my four year old on Christmas morning, and I was not dissapointed!
Here’s what’s inside the August 2014 loot crate:
1. Funko Pop Exclusive Loot Crate Edition Groot – Groot has a glow in the dark hand you won’t find anywhere else! I was really excited about this, ever since the exclusive Funko Pop figure was announced I’ve been hoping it would be GotG related! J was all over this because we had just gone to see the movie, but this one I wasn’t sharing.
2. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Full Figure – A glow in the dark TMNT figure. About two inches tall, I had barely opened the packaging before A grabbed this and ran off to play.
3.Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Mask Glasses – This was really cool, we had seen them at Spencer Gifts a few weeks ago and the kids really liked them, so this was another one that I just barely got a photo of before the kids had it.
4. Schwings Shoe Lightning Bolts – I love these. How can someone not be excited about getting a Flash-esque upgrade? I seriously put them on right away, before the kids could get these too.
5. Sonic Air Freshener – My husband laid claim to this one, because he needed a new air freshener in his car and this one is pretty awesome.
. 6. Loot Crate Labs Chimichango’s Cereal Magnet – A really cool magnet for Deadpool fans. This was easily the most obscure item in the box.
7. Bonus Digital Loot – Codes for 11 Doctors and Gauntlet content, and a download of Defense Grid: The Awakening
Overall I was really happy with this box and felt that it was worth the $20. I know some people have complained in the past that the boxes focus too much on currently popular characters. For me, this is one of the reasons I love it. Things like GotG and TMNT are something both my kids and I can appreciate and being able to share the box with them is half the fun (ok, most of the box). I will definitely continue my subscription and hope that the next box is as good as this one!
