Chimichang'Os Magnet


Loot Crate is a monthly service in which you receive geek-friendly merchandise at a discount, grouped around a particular theme. This month’s theme was heroes, which is even broader than last month's villains theme. The hero of note for this particularly item is Deadpool. Again. Wait, wasn't Deadpool in the Villains crate? Somebody really, really likes Deadpool.

So this is one of those products that's an in-joke. Deadpool likes to say the word "Chimichangas!" In what starts to be a bit of a stretch, these are "Chimichang'os" (the breakfast of anti-heroes!). See what they did there? You have to know Deadpool likes Chimichangas (he doesn't really, he just likes saying the word), remember the "Breakfast of Champions" cereal, and...oh forget it, this is a lot of work for a magnet.

Two out of three stars. Unless you're a Deadpool fan, then it probably could be a red magnet with the word "Deadpool" on it and it would get five stars. Want your own Loot Crate? Sign up at ($19.37/month for one month) and use code SAVE10 to receive 10% off.
