Everything inside my May 2019 LootCrate!

Ghostbusters Terror Dog Pin. This month’s pin features the vicious breed of demonic hellhounds from the Ghostbusters!

The Terror Dogs are bulky monsters that have glowing red eyes and horns. These creatures can also possess human beings. The most famous and powerful among these creatures were the two loyal servants of Gozer known as Zuul and Vinz Clortho.

Blade Runner Tyrell Corporation Owl Patch. For the Looters favorite item, you can get either a Blade Runner patch or a Pac-Man Ghost Pin! Here, we got a Blade runner Tyrell Corp Owl Patch. The Tyrell Corporation was a biotech corporation and a high-tech firm that focuses on the production of replicants. Owls are animoid replicants made by Tyrell Corp and they are extremely rare to the point of extinction. These creatures also symbolize wealth.

The League of Regrettable Superheroes by Jon Morris – The Loot Crate Edition ($14.47)

Look, up in the sky! It’s a bee! It’s a clown! It’s…a giant eyeball?

You know about Batman, Superman, and Spiderman, but have you heard of Doll Man, Doctor Hormone, or Spider Queen? In The League of Regrettable Superheroes, you’ll meet one hundred of the strangest superheroes ever to see print, complete with backstories, vintage art, and colorful commentary. So prepare yourself for such not-ready-for-prime-time heroes as Bee Man (Batman, but with bees), the Clown (circus-themed crimebuster), the Eye (a giant, floating eyeball; just accept it), and many other oddballs and oddities. Drawing on the entire history of the medium, The League of Regrettable Superheroes will appeal to die-hard comics fans, casual comics readers, and anyone who enjoys peering into the stranger corners of pop culture.

The book was also in the Loot Crate July 2015 box!

This is actually quite hilarious, and a great side table book. If ever you got tired of watching TV or movies, you can just easily grab this book and read about half-baked heroes!

Here’s one of them, Pat Parker who is a war nurse. It’s really an entertaining book that introduces us to more “almost supers”!

The Legion of Regrettable Supervillains by Jon Morris – The Loot Crate Edition ($14.92)

Meet the lesser of all evils!

Every hero needs a villain. But not all villains are dangerous–some are incompetent, comical, or just . . . weird. In his follow-up to The League of Regrettable Superheroes, author Jon Morris presents over a hundred of the strangest, most stupefying supervillains to ever see print in comics. Meet D-list rogues like Brickbat (choice of weapon: poisonous bricks), Robbing Hood (steals from the poor to give to the rich), Swarm (a crook made of bees; Nazi bees), and many more. Drawing on the entire history of the medium, The Legion of Regrettable Supervillains affectionately and hilariously profiles oddball criminals from the history of comics.

We love superheroes, but it’s great learning about villains too!

The book is all about the odd, comical, and incompetent adversaries!

There are vintage art and even backstories of these lawbreakers!

It’s another fun read to go with the regrettable superheroes. If you want a good laugh, you can always depend on these books!

Ghostbusters Slimed Figure. Finally, they included a figure on my crate. It features the fantasy-comedy film, Ghostbusters! The figure also came in a really nice box.

The figure is composed of 3 easy-to-attach parts.

Here’s one of the original Ghostbusters got slimed, Peter Venkman! He’s wearing the Ghostbusters uniform, a CWU-27p Flight Suit in beige, and he’s also holding a Motorola MT500 radio.

On his back is Slimer, their first ever catch and soon-to-be mascot!

The figure is in celebration of the Ghostbusters 35th anniversary. The figure is impressively detailed as well.

Jaws Drain Plug. Another item in the crate that calls for a celebration is this drain plug featuring the thriller film celebrating its 44th anniversary, Jaws!

The plug looks scary with the white shark’s head sticking out of the water and its mouth open, exposing its sharp teeth!

It’s a nice addition as it easily fits on our tub’s drain! It makes the work easier!

This month’s crate is a celebration of sorts! Some of the items are produced in celebration of anniversaries, like the Ghostbusters for its 35th year and Jaws which is on its 44th! The Regrettable Superheroes book is a repeat item from way back, it’s still a nice inclusion along with the Regrettable Villains. Both are entertaining reads! I also like the Ghostbusters figure, as it really captures the characters’ persona. The pin is awesome too. There may be fewer items compared to the past boxes but I found them all valuable and cool. I just hope they start to send these boxes on time!
