After several months of delay, it FINALLY arrived! My Loot Crate Mission Crate! I actually avoided opening it for several hours for fear that I would find that its contents weren't worth the wait after all. I want to say that it was, and I want to say that it wasn't, but only because I hate waiting and I'm still feeling butthurt about it. Trust me, it was so worth it.
Right on top was an amazing t-shirt. I don't have a lot of Star Trek shirts, mostly because I don't always like how characters are rendered on them and also because your choices are usually limited to uniform style shirts otherwise. I'm pretty stoked to have a shirt with this schematic-like artwork on it. Would that it were more like the Tie Fighter or Millennium Falcon shirts available at Target, but I've long learned to accept that the Star Wars franchise is always going to get more fan service love than Star Trek. Still, all the same, it's a pretty sweet shirt, which I'm wearing as I type this.

This was one of the items that delayed the crate for so long, and you know what? I forgive you Jean Luc! This was a traumatic time in your life, and you need time to heal.
Just look at that thing! That thing is legit! I should warn you now that the rest of this post will be me squealing in a pitch only dogs can hear.
Slid along the side of the box were a car decal sticker of the Borg Cube and a free starter pack for Star Trek Online. I seem to recall having briefly playing Star Trek online at some point, but maybe I hallucinated that? More likely I've played a crappy Star Trek game because no one loves us Trekkies enough to make more than one or two quality games for us. This game might be garbage too, but by god! I'll sign up!

There isn't usually a lot to say about replica communicators, it's a badge on a pin back or safety pin style back. But not this, oh no! This thing has some heft to it! It's back is magnetic, which makes for a little cleaner cosplay if that's your thing. I don't cosplay, I can't put this on my pin board, and I don't trust magnets on my satchel, so it'll likely end up either on my Star Trek shelf in its package or on my work board over my desk - as soon as I get my desk up here, and set up my work board.
|Oh my god!|
|Holy freaking crap guys!|
I just...I just can't right now. I just freaking can't. It's fucking beautiful. I'm sorry, I know I'm supposed to be reviewing this thing but I have to go for a while to weep tears of joy.
In non-Star Trek-related news, I got my Creeper Crate box, which was themed "McNeal." As in Reagan McNeal. From The Exorcist. It was a great box, but also a very unsettling one because The Exorcist is one of the only films to ever really scare me. So I'm not reviewing it, but I assure you that everything in it was high quality nightmare fuel. I also received my Witch Baby Soap Spell Box. I don't even need to say how good it was. It was good. So good. I also got my Magick & Macabre Wicked Witch Box. I've been sick and I get backed up on things I mean to do, so I didn't review that one either. But, again, so so so good!
In other news, I've recently signed up with Influenster and have received my first Vox Box! After I've tested the product I'll do a blurb here. I'm still figuring Influenster out, with it being a little like a social media sight, a bit like a consumer survey sight, and being something altogether its own. But it's free to join, and if they're willing to send me stuff then I'm pretty sure almost anyone can jump on board. Obviously the item I'll review won't have been paid for by me, but my post also won't be a sponsored post because I'm not being paid. So if you're weird enough to read this on the regular, you've got something to look forward to.
