Loot Crate unboxing time! August’s theme is “Villains 2” — a sequel to last year’s Villains box.

Okay, onto the August 2015 Loot Crate unboxing!
A peek inside!
August’s mini mag/info booklet featured a “match the villain to their quote” game, Batman villains in real life, and more.
Marvel Venom 3D Mug – Okay, total honesty here… This is the fugliest mug I’ve ever seen. Granted, I’m not a Spiderman fan, but still. Plus, for a licensed item I’d expect a higher quality paint job. This is super sloppily done and even looks like it has chips in some spots. It also seems like it would be awkward as hell to drink out of. Though, it’s not dishwasher safe, so maybe it’s more of a display piece? Either way, mehhh.
Los Pollos Hermanos Apron – This is a quirky Breaking Bad themed apron that depicts the fictional fried chicken restaurant from the show. While my husband is a Breaking Bad fan, he’s not exactly into aprons, so this will probably be up for sale/trade. A neat item, just not something we’d use.
The Joker Wooden Figure – A Loot Crate exclusive, this wooden Joker figure is carved from eco-friendly wood and features posable arms and interchangeable heads. Definitely a unique collectible.
Captain America Hydra Pin – This authentic replica pin was created using the original digital files of the actual screen prop. Another cool, well made collectible.
While there were less total items than usual in this month’s Loot Crate, I was totally fine with there being less “filler” and more larger items. Aside from the mug, everything was of great quality and it all fit with the villains theme.
