I’ve got some mixed feelings about this month’s UNITE Loot Crate. On the one hand there is a ton of great stuff packed into the crate and the crate itself converts into a team locker room with a whole bunch of fun extras. I love it when the box can be displayed and this is one of the best so far. The best will always be the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Lair one but this is very cool. I decided that I would put together a team of five super heroes from my collection of toys from my desk at work to Unite my own team.
I chose my Honesty special edition red figure from I Am Elemental as the team leaders. Since there is no backstory for this character I can make one up and make her the ultimate leader on par with someone inspiring like Captain America. She will need some major leadership skills to wrangle team members like Rocket Raccoon and Spider-Man. I now realize that I chose two Marvel based characters. I probably should have thrown in a DC one for good measure. Donatello has always been my favorite Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle and he’ll provide the team tech support. Soundwave is your rogue element. In this team I see him as a Decepticon who has lost his taste for evil and is looking to change. Why? I don’t really have a compelling reason but it might be interesting.
Inside the crate was a Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers T-Shirt and if it wasn’t for that series the shirt would be really, really cool. I’m not a fan but then again you can’t be a fan of everything. I’m also not that familiar with Bravest Warriors and there is a special edition comic in the box as well. I’ll give it a shot. I am also unfamiliar with Rick and Morty but a Puzzle is a puzzle. There was a set of pins for Team Fortress, another property I have no clue about. I’m on the fence about MAD Magazine but I’m leaning toward liking it. I used to see these occasionally as a kid but was never into them. So that is why I am on the fence, so many things this time around that I’m not really into, but then there was a Marvel Avengers Window Decal and some shoelaces and also a Marvel themed Ice Cube Tray. There is even a contest around the Ice Cube Tray which should be fun.
While the stuff I like doesn’t outweigh the stuff I could care less about it was still a decent crate.
