This month’s Loot Crate theme was Origins, taking a look back at some iconic beginnings! I really liked this crate, there are some super items in here but lets take a look and you can tell me what you think of it!
EXCLUSIVE Captain America Golden Age Shield
‘Cleverly depicted as Steve Roger’s performance (and first battle) shield in Captain America: The First Avenger, this badge-like aegis was what the good Captain originally wielded in his comic debut way back in December 1940 (Captain America Comics #1 cover dated as march 1041). This high-quality metal replica features scaled straps on the back and comes with a display stand. Certificate of Authenticity included.’
Now this is pretty awesome! The shield feels like a good quality item and the stand is a pretty sturdy acrylic one. You can’t go wrong with this type of item in my opinion.
EXCLUSIVE Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Muglets
‘Though they had a much grittier start in Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird’s Mirage Studios comic in May 1984, most people first met the Turtle brothers in the light-hearted 1987 animated series. Running for just shy of 10 years (it ended in 1996), its popularity spawned a host of cross-media adaptations including video games, live action movies and is currently on its third cartoon. So raise a glass and toast TMNT with this ceramic mini-Tiki mug! You have a chance to get 1 of the 4 turtles in muglet form, or the rare Shredder variant.’
So as you can see, we got the rare Shredder variant, which is awesome because we never get the rare variants on anything. Shredder is pretty awesome, but I will admit that it would have been equally as awesome to get Donnie! The muglet is basically a shot glass size and I probably won’t use it for anything so it goes on the TMNT shelf.
EXCLUSIVE Action Comics #1 Reprint
‘Created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster way back in 1933, the character we would come to know and love didn’t exactly catch on at first. But they were on to something and, 5 years later, Superman made his debut at the company that would become DC Comics. We salute this cultural icon with an authentic replica reprint of Action Comics #1. Printed on the origin newsprint stock with the original ads, this rarity includes a Certificate of Authenticity.’
Love this! Who doesn’t love to read the origin of a Superhero?
EXCLUSIVE Original “Jumpman” T-Shirt
‘Before he was “Super”, he was known as “Jumpman”. Shigeru Miyamoto created Donkey Kong and the character that would become Mario (and his first gal pal, Pauline) when he couldn’t acquire the license for Popeye. We pay tribute to his barrel-jumping start with this exclusive Loot Crate designed tee that will put a spring in your step.’
Yep, love this t-shirt! The fit is perfect and pretty long which is how I like me t-shirts. The print is a great vintage style print and has the Nintendo seal on it.
EXCLUSIVE Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Pin
‘The iconic Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles sewer logo makes a spiffy pin and may inspire you to try some unconventional pizza topping combinations.’
Gah! This pin is amazing! It might even be taking over the Sylvanas pin which is currently in first place of my favourite Loot Pins. Even better, the digital goodies for this month’s Loot Pins were the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #1-5 on Comixology, yaaaaaaaaasssssss!
Oh yeah and the box turns into this cool comic book holder!
I think this quote is pretty apt, being that America needs a champion at the moment!
