I hope you've packed your best gear and put your war paint on, because this month's Loot Crate theme is Warriors! Ok, it's mostly stuff dealing with Bravest Warriors, but still. And by the way, if you enjoy Adventure Time you should be checking out Bravest Warriors on YouTube because it's made by a lot of the same people. If you're one of those people that doesn't watch Adventure Time because it's "too loud," give Bravest Warriors a shot. Did I mention there's a character called Professor Fartsparkles?
Disclaimer: Loot Crate sends me a box of cool stuff every month in exchange for a review.
Heeeeeeere we go!
Issue 7 of the Loot Crate magazine debuts a new, slightly larger format than previous issues. It remains to be seen if I'm a fan of the new size because the Crate has a slightly smaller width so the mag has a bit of a bend on one side. It's not a huge deal, but as a comic collector, it bugs me. There's a few page write up about Frederator Studios (Bravest Warriors, Adventure Time, Fairly OddParents), an interview with Loot Crate's new SpokesWalrus, Theodore Tusk, and the usual pics of fans and info on all the swag in the Crate.
The trading card of Bravest Warriors comic #1 has a code on the back for a digital download of the issue. And the second Loot Crate badge (button) features Catbug, the breakout fan-favorite character from Bravest Warriors.
Next is a Dunny Sideshow blind box figure with card. It's a bit odd with a sort of totem pole thing going on. The back has a design similar to what's on the card, so you have two ways to display the figure if you like.
In the background is a cinch bag with the Gas Powered Stick logo. It's from a Bravest Warriors episode called, you guessed it, Gas Powered Stick. There's also a sticker with Impossibear holding said Gas Powered Stick. And Catbug is back again on a bowtie! I don't know that I could pull off a normal bowtie, never mind a Catbug bowtie, but it's cute!
Mmmm...bacon! A tasty greeting card from the folks at OpenMe. Inside it says "I love you more than bacon." I know for some people, that might be too much of a commitment. OpenMe has free e-cards or you can get printed versions for just $4.
Lastly, is this awesome shirt titled Alpha Battle featuring video game characters from just about every era of gaming. I know most of them except V (the white karate guy at the top) and U (the knight on the black horse). Any ideas? I know there's been plenty of X-Men games, but Prof. X seems out of place. I'm presuming the guy with the whip (lower right) is Indiana Jones, also a little out of place.
