So apparently twisted metal has a deal with loot crate, something I wasn't expecting, ever.

You mean loot create went "Hey sony we're doing a car battle themed box. Twisted?" And sony was like "Fuck it!"

So loot create has a deal with sony.

Well I only bought it for the twisted metal theme lol.

It's probably some shitty pop figure or something, or something cool.

My guess is a Sweet tooth pop. considering those exist. Let me know if I guessed right. I feel like it might have a shitty key chain as well.

Can't be a sweet tooth pop since they already exist.

It could be a shirt, lol.

Batman pops and all kinds of pops come in loot crate even though they exist?

It's off the site at the moment. When is your crate supposed to arrive so we'll know whats in it?

The only things that have recently from Sony's camp regarding Twisted Metal merch is a t-shirt that released in connection with TM2012 and a Needles Kane figurine (?). If anything, you'll end up with either one or both of those items, should the second item even exist.

Annddd... the TM item is an ice cream scooper.


That's the first, and the last Loot Crate I ever buy.

Hold on, was it really one TM item? That's pathetic should that be the case. Goes to show how much Sony values the IP.

Do you have pictures of it?

Mine hasn't arrived yet, but there's unboxing videos already up on the web.

I'm all for novelty items, but they should be something that can be either be showcased, or have more connection to the franchise than just being a scooper with some text and the clown head on the butt end. At the very least they could have made the text an actual quote from Sweet Tooth. I also read a few comments on Reddit complaining it didn't seem to be very high quality. I'm not going to dedicate space on a shelf to showcase an ice cream scooper, and it'll hardly ever be seen just being in the cutlery drawer.

And honestly, the whole package tanks even for Loot Crate standards. Considering it was vehicle-themed, I was expecting there to at least be a diecast of some sort. Instead, all there was is a very small plush ball for Rocket League, and a windshield shade for Mario Kart. The Destiny T-Shirt is also very lame, being black with a relatively small logo on it. Apparently there is even a code for a Loot Crate flag in Rocket League, which has already been made available to everyone in a recent patch. Well, at least the box the scooper comes in looks nice.

If anyone is interested in selling their ice cream scooper to make some cash back I'd be interested. Just shoot me a PM. Moving into my new house soon and would love it for the kitchen.

Damn . . . I seriously considered buying this one but ended up dodging a bullet.  At least we know it's dodgable. 

What about the quality of the ice cream scoop? Is there any depth to it?  Or does it just seem like a rebranded dumbed down version of previous classic ice cream scoops?

Don't know why everyone is mad. You can use that scooper to rip eyes out.

Yes, well, your picture clearly indicates you have some sort of unhealthy ice cream fetish.

I got my ice cream scooper.

I also just realized that Rocket League does have twisted metal skins in it lol.

So I don't like rocket league but still kinda cool twisted metal is still getting some kind of support. I mean, sony technically didn't need to release anything to loot crate.

This wasn't even the first official ice cream scooper from twisted metal.

I kinda like it.
