The above video pretty much says it all. This is not the standard, informative Loot Crate Unboxing guide that I regularly post. This is mayhem! This was my brain on Four Loko.
I would like to say that when I contacted Loot Crate about the defective box, they were very nice and helpful. They let me exchange it for another one. Top notch customer service!
We are a couple, who lives together, so we didn’t actually need duplicates of the BTTF stuff. They were gifted to my dad along with his other Christmas presents and he was ecstatic! He’s also a huge BTTF fan.

Back to the Future 88MPH Tee
by Shirt Punch, exclusively for Nerd Block approximately $10
This is an okay tee for a great movie. Personally I would have liked something more innovative. I can’t find this particular tee online. Here’s one on Amazon that includes 88MPH. This one is more of a cosplay style. It actually has Marty’s shirt and vest printed on it. Now I would have LOVED something like this! BTTF tees seem to retail online for about $10-20. This actual shirt was made exclusively for Nerd Block from Shirt Punch. Shirt Punch is a site that has a tee for a limited amount of time. Tees on there go for $10.
Tough Shit: Life Advice from a Fat, Lazy Slob Who Did Good (paperback book)
by Kevin Smith retail $13.49
I love Kevin Smith, but I have a huge stack of books to read. Hopefully this will be entertaining when I actually get around to reading it. IMHO-Books shouldn’t be a main item in a crate because it’s been my experience that they have the lowest resale value right after you buy one, even if it’s brand new. For instance, you can buy this used for 15 cents right now on Amazon. Why do I mention resale? I will resell items that I don’t want.
Ghostbusters Ecto-1 Car
by Titan(s) Vinyl Figures exclusively for Nerd Block approximately $20
This is exclusive to Nerd Block. I immediately resold on eBay for $10, because it’s not my style. It would probably have a projected retail price of around $20. This is the Funko that I refer to in the video. If I had received this, it would be proudly displayed in my home right now.
Pac-Man Heat Changing Mug
by Paladone Products $10.99 This mug sells for $10.99 on Amazon. The design changes with heat, which is cool, but I most likely would not pay over $5 for it.
Nerd Play Cosplayer Playing Cards
by Nerd Block approximately $1
I’m being generous at estimating these at any type of price point as I think they are a ridiculous product.
Approximate Retail Value
This box did not live up to my expectations. It proves that even if the items are technically worth an adequate amount, if they are not worth it to you, then it’s a waste of money.
So we’ve established that yes, the 2012 Wizard World Philadelphia Comic Con was awesome. One of my favorite parts of any convention that I’ve ever attended are checking out all of the great costumes or cosplayers, if you will. Since we were press (I know, it’s weird to think about) and we had a lot to do I didn’t get as many shots as I otherwise would have. However the pics I did get I am definitely jazzed about.
Press passes to the convention were provided to both Hot Donna & myself gratis from the awesome PR team at Wizard World.
The next Wizard World Comic Con takes place in Chicago this August. For more info on their upcoming cons please visit the Wizard World site.
You may not know that I’m a huge fan of Ludacris. I was just a casual fan until I lived with my sister for a while. Luckily thanks to her influence I am now prone to singing along loudly to Ludacris songs whenever they come on wherever I am. Yeah, we used to be the white girls in the apartment complex blasting Luda out of our car windows at 10AM when you were hungover. Hey, we were hungover too but that shit will wake you up.
So I was thrilled to find out that Ludacris just released a new Mixtape and you can download it for free. That’s awesome times two! You can go HERE to download 1.21 Gigawatts Back To The First Time. It’s a zip file so make sure that you have WinZip or a similar program to unpack it.
Of course the title, cover art and Intro are influenced by the classic Back to the Future film trilogy. The album includes appearances from Wiz Khalifa, Rick Ross, Gucci Mane and Waka Flocka. My current favorite tracks are Do Sumthin Strange, I Ain’t The One, Rich & Flexin and Save It For Another Day. I don’t keep up with arguments between rappers but I still thought that History Lesson was pretty funny.
