October marks my second month as being a member of the Loot Crate community. (Official Looter #354 to be exact) After receiving the first crate and seeing the theme of 8bit, the thought of making a seasonal crate did not cross my mind. To my delight this month looters were greeted with a zombie themed crate.
Upon cracking open the box I was presented with my official Loot Crate membership card. Below that was a Blizzard Diablo III t-shirt. Next out of the box was a bottle of Love Energy Potion. Next a pair of glow in the dark vampire fangs.
Next up is where my love of Loot Crate is solidified. Zombie Jerky and Zombie Pea Brains. The Zombie Jerky is shall pieces of meat dried and dyed green. While it is obvious that this is beef jerky it is still a little unsettling. The Pea brains look to be dried peas covered in something white. I am not a huge fan of peas but I am going to have to give them a try. Both products are produced by Harcos Laboratories. Which is an interesting name for a company that has put out Zombie Jerky.
To go along with the zombie parts the next piece is a zombie hunter dog tag. At the bottom of the box were two zombie themed buttons. My favorite exclaming “What do we want! BRAINS When do we want them! BRAINS”
Thank you to LootCrate for making a wonderful product.

I am a bit behind this week. I was out of town for the weekend and have a lot of catching up to do. While out of town I got to go to Mile High Comics in Denver, which was amazing. Not only that but I have Walking Dead on the DVR and a LootCrate to tell tell you about. I will save that for later.

Yes two exclamations points were needed. First off, what is Loot Crate? Loot Crate is the wine of the month club for those into nerd/geek culture. I first heard of Loot Crate while at ComiKaze. It caught my attention and I decided to give it a try. For about $19 a month, Loot Crate sends you a box of cool stuff in the mail. The site advertises for $13.37 a month but there is shipping too.
Enough boring stuff, on to what matters. What was in the Loot Crate. Upon opening my crate I was presented with Mr T. Mr. T is a gift certificate for $25 off commissioned art from Len Peralta.
Digging further into my crate I found more treasure.
We took some time and checked out all the items in the box. The sunglasses are really cool. I have yet to try the Mario Brothers energy drink or the Radium energy powder. The mustache is fun and funky. I have friends that would be able to make better use of it than I could.
In all this was money well spent. I could not wait to get home from work and crack into my Loot Crate. They have definitely made a believer out of me. If you are going to check it out use this link. If you order you get me a bonus.
One last parting shot.
