So there’s this awesome thing called Loot Crate, a monthly subscription service where you get a box full of geeky items that range from t-shirts and socks to bobble heads and magnets to towels and comics. Each box contains four to six licensed items from multiple franchises all centered around the month’s theme. While they have the generic Loot Crate, they also offer Loot Anime, Loot Pets and, of course, Loot Gaming.
We’re excited to share what would be in our “Dream Crate.” This is a crate created by us that we would love to see in the future. We can add anything we want to it. Kris and I came up with a bunch of different themes. Since there’s two of us, we thought we’d talk about two of our ideas. The themes would be Justice and Sweet Treats.
With Justice, what comes to mind for us is our favorite heroes and all their awesome gadgets and costumes. I want to open up a Justice-themed Loot Crate box and have Link pop out! If I can’t have the guy, I’d love his hat, bracelets or necklaces of the medallions from Ocarina of Time, plushies of Sheik, Epona, and a cucco. A Batman mask and cape, replicas of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ weapons (or even a real-life Shellcycle!), a poster of the Pokemon champions and legendaries, and an art book or comic filled with pictures and lore of the Fire Emblem franchise are just a few other items that I would love to see from a Justice-themed Loot Crate.
There are so many different items that could go with Justice and I would definitely want all the ones you included. For me, I would love anything Ace Attorney. An “Objection!” decal sticker, Apollo Justice’s bracelet or Maya Fey’s Magatama necklace. I wouldn’t mind having Professor Layton’s hat either. I would especially want a mug just like prosecutor Godot. It could have him on it with a quote or something. I would treasure that always! I would love anything from Luigi’s mansion. A ghost plushie, a Poltergeist 3000 replica, a cute figurine of Luigi from the game, or a Dark Moon paper weight. I don’t really know what I’d use a paper weight for, but I’m sure it would look pretty! The mansion would be nice too, with all the money inside. I’m going to add onto your TMNT list (because I didn’t think of them) and I would definitely add socks and pillows. I wouldn’t mind having a pillow in the shape of a Donatello head and having a comfy pair of socks with their happy faces and pizza.
Ahh, the Phoenix Wright franchise is perfect for this crate! Godot’s coffee and Maya’s burgers would also work for our food-inspired Sweet Treats theme as well. Mugs, aprons, and oven mitts decorated with the characters and catchphrases like, “OBJECTION!” would definitely encourage me to cook more, haha! Recipes from different games would be cool, too, like Princess Peach’s (rather, Toadstool as she was known then) cake recipe from Super Mario 64. Bottles for red potions, LonLon milk, or chu jellies from the Legend of Zelda, or poffins recipes from Pokemon for either you or your dog would be other great additions!
Cookie cutters! Cookie cutters everywhere! Cookie cutters of everything from all the games! Seriously, though, I’d be a master baker. Recipes would be nice, but having a copy of Rosana Pansino’s Nerdy Nummies cookbook would be cool. I would love to have utensils and appliances based on games. A Gameboy fridge would be cool. It’s the right shape and they’re making smartphone fridges, so all the tools are right there! Speaking of Ace Attorney again, I’d love to have an apron from Tres Bien, a restaurant location from one of the games. And what about the Gourmet Shy Guy in Paper Mario? I’d love to have a pillow or plushie of him. Oh, and anything Yoshi. He gobbles everything up!
Kirby too! Remember his final Smash in the Smash Brothers game, where he gathers everyone into a giant pot? Let’s just have a plushie or figurine of him with his little chef hat and everything! A chef hat with Kirby on it would be awesome too! A book full of Harvest Moon recipes would be another item for my Sweet Treats list. To go along with cookie cutters, cake molds of characters like Link and Mario would be great! Oh, I could go on and on about all of these…
I could go on and on as well. Sadly, I know some of these items are unrealistic, but that is why it’s called a “Dream Crate.” This may or may not happen, but it’s always fun to dream about!
If you guys could have anything in a Loot Crate, what would they be? Let us know!
