December 2016s Loot Crate brought the revolution

first_imgStay on target Sorry, the latest Loot Crate unboxing is a bit late. Technical difficulties, gun distractions, obsessing over the Nintendo Switch, you know how it is. December 2016’s Loot Crate theme was REVOLUTION, and it had some neat items.The biggest property in the Loot Crate is Assassin’s Creed. Not only is the month’s pin a pretty nice silver Assassins logo, but the box comes with a Funk Pop figure of Aguilar from the Assassin’s Creed movie. In a related note, did you know there was an Assassin’s Creed movie? It apparently came out last month. Had Magneto in it. No, young Magneto, the guy who was in Prometheus.Still hitting that geek nostalgia note, Firefly has an appearance in the Revolution box in the form of an iron-on Browncoats patch. It’s a pretty neat logo that wasn’t featured prominently in the show, with a blue start on a green triangle. Obviously military, but with just a bit of extra geometric complexity to give it a sci-fi look.There’s also the book Figure Fantasy: The Pop Culture Photography of Daniel Picard. It’s a book of immaculately posed and photographed Sideshow Collectibles figures in different tableaus. Mostly Star Wars and Marvel, The photos really show off the absurd detail of Sideshow figures, which is why they’re several hundred dollars each. The book also comes with a coupon code for $25 off an order from Slideshow, with a chance of that code being worth $200 in Sideshow products.Incidentally, with the name Picard, this extremely talented photographer was obviously doomed to shooting action figures, from birth.Finally, there’s a Fsociety t-shirt. Fsociety (Is it fsociety? FSociety? Style guidelines are weird for things like this) is the hacker collective from Mr. Robot, which many of my friends are saying I should watch. I’m too hooked by Terrace House at the moment, though.The full list:Assassin’s Creed Aguilar Funko Pop figureFirefly Independents (Browncoats) iron-on patchFigure Fantasy: The Pop Culture Photography of Daniel Picard bookMr. Robot Fsociety t-shirtMonthly pin: Assassin’s Creed logo The Best Wonder Wharf Prizes for Bob’s Burgers FansOpen The Nick Box from CultureFly, Get Amazing Hat last_img read more
