Recently I was made aware of a site that offered a monthly dose of collectables delivered right to your door.....
The site in question - Lootcrate
Being a fan of movies, comics and all things pop culture related I knew I had to give it a try - and I'm glad I did!
Ordering at the start of the year I was kept informed by emails on what was going to be on the way with hints and sneak peaks being sent to me. Every month there is a different theme and this months 'crate' was titled 'rewind' - which ultimately was a look at geek & gaming past.
What's great about Lootcrate is they ship to various destinations across the globe - UK included so I was delighted to get back from work tonight and see my parcel waiting for me. Opening it up the first item was instantly something I was delighted to have..... A Voltron T-Shirt!
Voltron was a 1980's animated tv show that screams pop culture so this item will be worn - it's a cool piece to own!
Next out of the box came some retro 8-Bit glasses - they are certainly different but worth a wear! Roll on the summer eh?
Pulled out next was a comic note book - interestingly something that lets you doodle and create your own comic too! Quirky!
Now - my job involves me going to meetings and what I opened up next made me smile. A small box with 'black tie geek' on was opened and inside - the coolest of cool space invaders tie!!
This will be worn - and clients will be impressed!
Following up from this came an item that will join my desk toy collection.....
An exclusive Lootcrate 10-Doh figure.
You can't see from the picture below but these figures inspired by NES game cartridges have arms and legs and make any desk a bit more lively!
Finally on the back of the Star Wars #1 comic release came an exclusive Lootcrate copy of the book! Consider this bagged - boarded and now sat in my collection (the original I brought only last week so the variant can stay sealed away)
There's a nice book with a few articles in too - so all in all a very successful haul! :)
Needless to say I am now a subscriber - roll on the end of next month - I can't wait to see what goodies I get!!
