With this week marking the release of the highly-anticipated ‘Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice’ movie (spoiler alert: Wonder Woman is the only one who matters)– it seemed appropriate that Loot Crate’s theme for the month of March would be “VERSUS”, especially since the theme can span across so many other famous feuds throughout movies, television, comics and gaming.
This month’s Loot Crate was the last of my usual three subscription services that I receive to arrive at my door, and I thought it was a nice way to round out the list!
One of the feuds predominantly featured in March’s “VERSUS” theme was ‘Alien Vs. Predator’ (such a guilty pleasure of mine.) Not only did the box come equipped with an AVP figurine- which I’ll get to shortly- but the monthly collector’s pin also celebrated the feud. Although I don’t typically hang onto the pins every month, I think this is one I’ll keep for myself. It’s kinda’ adorable!
March’s monthly mini-magazine was chock-full of extras- including a Spock version of ‘Where’s Waldo?’, a guide to defeating any opponent ever (and another guide on how to perfect your villain look), a look inside Harley Quinn’s purse- which is eerily similar to what’s in my own purse- and an interview with the artist behind this month’s t-shirt, Juan Ortiz.
The magazine also featured the usual item breakdowns and fan-submitted photos too, of course.
While I’ve typically enjoyed every figurine I’ve received since first subscribing to Loot Crate, the detail of this ‘Alien’ one from Titan Merchandise makes it one of my favorites. It might be hard to see it from the picture, but this glow-in-the-dark toy is actually pretty large in size- and heavy!- and will undoubtedly find a home on one of my shelves or the shelves of my best friend Sean (who is also terrified of anything extra-terrestrial so this will be a lovely addition in his room, I think- especially if I don’t tell him I’m putting it there!)
Not to be a Debbie Downer, but my dislike of all things Jesse Eisenberg has all but ruined any excitement for ‘Batman V. Superman’ for me. I don’t know if Ben Affleck or the appearance of Wonder Woman can coerce me into watching the character of Lex Luthor get butchered by Eisenberg’s overall awfulness- but I’ll do my best to get through it.
Despite that setback, this super-strength wallet from DYNOMIGHTY has a pretty cool design to celebrate the movie- although I’m not sure that this is something I’d carry around with me. I have a feeling my Superman-fanatic friend, Evan, will appreciate this more than me- and I’ll be passing this along to him the next time I see him!
Although I’ve always been more of a Poison Ivy kind of gal (see HERE)– I also know that every Ivy needs her Harley, and for that- I absolutely love this exclusive HQ comic book I received in this month’s Loot Crate! Up until now, I’ve never had the courage to cosplay such a wild and endearing character- but I gotta’ say I’m pretty tempted, now!
My favorite item in March’s Loot Crate has got to be this reversible and really well made Daredevil/Punisher hat from BIOWORLD. I don’t know how many of you have been watching the latest season of the show, but Jon Bernthal (insert heart-eyes emoji here) has been CRUSHING it as Frank Castle. It is the role he was born to play. He’s the perfect mix of brutal and understandable all at once. I highly recommend everyone who hasn’t caught up yet do so immediately!
I’ll definitely be wearing the Punisher side of this thing on a regular basis.
I’m really loving the vintage style/feel of this fitted Star Trek t-shirt in this month’s crate. I’ve worn it a couple of times since I received March’s collection of items- so it’s starting to stretch out a little more the way that I like my shirts to fit. It’s soft and comfortable, and the design is so kick-ass! I’m really loving this whole ‘a shirt in every crate’ goal that Loot Crate has been striving for lately. They’ve all been so much fun!
And there it is, March’s Loot Crate- another great assortment of toys, accessories, and trinkets. The theme reveal for April’s box should be arriving in my e-mail any day now- but I’m hoping that there’s some ‘Captain America: Civil War’ stuff coming up in the future!
