May "Unite" themed Loot Crate unboxing and review

Hey guys! I certainly hope your day is off to a good start. So yesterday I got Mays "Unite" Loot Crate in the mail! I had stopped subscribing for a few months because the themes didn't particularly interest me but this month promised items from some choice fandoms of mine including Team Fortress 2 so naturally I went back for this month.

Just a little rundown in case you're all What's a Loot Crate? Loot Crate is a monthly geek and gamer subscription box that gets shipped to your door every month for as long as you are subscribed. This box comes stuffed with nerd culture goodies often including t-shirts, comic books etc. You can purchase either 1,3,6, or 12 month subscriptions ranging in price from $29.95 for a one month subscription to $312.00 for a one year subscription. Shipping is included in these prices which is handy because I'm in Canada and shipping can be a bitch. So after that brief run down here we go with the unbox!

Here we have the crate as it arrived through the post. I have definitely had them show up in worse condition than this (although that's probably more a fault of USPS/ Canada Post than anything) all in all box condition this month isn't bad so that's a plus. Let's see what's inside. (Full disclosure my boyfriend got to un-box this one before hand and show me what was in it so this is just after we did that :P)

Here is everything hanging out in the box. It was filled out pretty nicely this month, I hate extra space it makes me feel like I didn't get what I paid for, so I definitely liked that the stuff at least filled the box out nicely this month haha.

..and just a shot of everything still in the box but visible before I get into talking about each individual item :)
First off, just like every month we get the Loot Crate magazine which tells you about all the stuff in this months crate, along with other interesting info and information on each months Mega Crate which you are automatically entered to win each month you are subscribed.

Again like every month we have the button featuring an image fitting the theme, the theme itself, and the month of the crate.

The first item I took out is this neat little puzzle in a box from the show Rick and Morty. I admit I've only seen a couple of episodes of this show so far, but from what I've seen it's pretty funny and puzzles are great fun so I'm definitely liking this item. It will make a nice wall piece when it's done and glued down to which is always awesome. It states the puzzle is 11" x 14" and has 300 pieces. I am definitely going to be posting when I finish this puzzle so you can see the finished product :)

OMFG ok so...this might not be a big deal to some people, and I have been taking more time to play offline games but this is the item I was most excited for even though I didn't know exactly what it was going to be. FRACKING TF2 buttons you guys. I also need to mention that just the fact that they are TF2 is enough for me, but that I got a Balloonicorn is the best thing of life. I still need to get one of the tangible Balloonicorns but this button is the next best thing. My boyfriend and I have decided that we will take turns swapping between us the Red and Blue team pins, but the Balloonicorn with permanently remain with me, and the Sandvich will continually remain with him.

Some nifty Marvel shoe laces, they look silky-ish and feature an all over print.

A marvel Avengers Age of Ultron decal, most likely for cars. My car is personally off the road for a few months so this will have to get tucked away for now. Especially since I live in a small ass town I haven't even gotten to see Age of Ultron yet.

This months crate featured a special Loot Crate edition of Mad Magazine which is pretty awesome because Mad Magazine/ Mad TV are some of the best things ever, seriously why is it not still on TV.

A super awesome Loot crate exclusive Bravest Warrior comic. No more words are necessary.

This is my other favorite item from this months crate next to the TF2 buttons, a freaking Power Rangers shirt! However because we swap between my t-shirt size and my boyfriends T-shirt size to be fair this awesome Power Rangers T-shirt will be his and not mine :P Oh well at least I get to look at it on him :) Hopefully there will be a t-shirt next month of something equally awesome for moi.

And lastly we have a Marvel Silicon ice cube tray. Ok so full disclosure I normally wouldn't be too excited to receive an ice cube tray in a subscription box, HOWEVER I was pumped for it because we just made the switch to silicon ice cube trays and LOVE THEM. Therefore this item makes a jump from eh an ice cube tray, that's kind of cool to AWESOME another silicon ice cube tray haha. Plus it's Marvel so that's an added bonus even though I'm a DC girl at heart (I'm looking at you Batman).

So that's it this month guys, all in all I'm pretty pleased this month! Want to get your own Loot Crate subscription? You can do so here. Next months theme has already been revealed as "Cyber" and it looks as though there will be some items from Terminator Genysis and Borderlands 2!! Those two things alone have me staying for at least another month :P
