35:11 — Loot Crate Lookie-Loo

  • A return visit from Sonic Boom!
  • The themes for this go-round
    • For Mom & Dad — Speed
    • For Boom — Battlefield
  • Boom’s crate was a psyche-out — it’s just the membership tee-shirt.
  • So Boom joins in for Speed
    • Stark Racing from Iron Man II is the tee-shirt
    • The Batwing from Tim Burton’s Batman.
    • It’s Eleanor from Gone in 60 Seconds.
    • A Flash hoodie. Not the kind of hoodie you would think though…
    • A niiiiice Cylon Raider from Battlestar Galactica (the reboot)
    • The Loot Crate pin — slick!
  • Geeky parents are stepping up to see where their daughter’s crate is.
  • What about these other geeky properties?
  • Batman…not Boom’s fandom.
  • Cars…could be Boom’s fandom.
