August’s #LootCrate #Unboxing : Anti-Hero

Loot Crate Anti-Hero

Each month I receive a free LootCrate to review. Opinions are, as always, 100% my own.

I really liked this crate. This one had some great stuff from Harley Quinn, Archer, Hellboy, World of Warcraft and Kill Bill. The only thing on that list I’m not much of a fan of is Kill Bill. I never watched that movie so it isn’t really something I have much to say about.

I really like Archer and the shirt definitely captures one of the more fun recurring callbacks of the show. Also, perfectly timed for the Election Season.

The Hellboy item is also cool, but I won’t be saving much in it. It is a bank of Hellboy’s hand. It isn’t that large, certainly not Hellboy-sized, but it can hold a couple of bucks.

The Loot Pin is a World of Warcraft one and the incentive for that this time is for a bunch of online game packs as part of the overall game, for new players only. I may just give it a try.

There is also a great statue of Harley Quinn from Batman: the Animated Series, included. Such a nice sculpture of Harley and one of her Hyenas, not sure if it is Bud or Lou.

You can see everything in the video below.

MEGA Bloks WoW sets on Clearance at Target

Photo-A-Day #3018

Occasionally I’ll drop over to Target and I walk the aisles to see what new toys are there. I also keep my eye out for that distinctive red and white price tag on clearance items. I usually find some pretty good deals. This MEGA Bloks World of Warcraft set caught my eye because of the wolf-like character. Add to that a Griffin as his mode of transportation and I was sold. Make the whole thing 50% off and even better.

I have mostly been interested in the MEGA Bloks Skylanders Giants sets but occasionally I do want to pick up something from their other lines. I really like the look of the World of Warcraft stuff that MEGA Bloks puts out. The detail on the figures is great and they are very pose-able. Then when I look at the HALO inspired sets I really like what I’m seeing for the vehicles. They are detailed and look great. The set that looks best to me is the COVERT OPS: UNSC WOLVERINE. This is one tough looking machine, tons of missiles and more. I have only played HALO when it first came out and I loved riding all over the place in the warthog. I think the Wolverine would be even better.

Most of the time I just pick up these things if they look cool the SWIFT GRYPHON was one of those things that looked cool to me. If I played WoW that would be the type of figure that I’d want to be when I played.
