brick builders club december 2015 boxDecember’s Brick Builders Club was a fun Star Wars themed box! Brick Swag by Brick Builders Club is a monthly subscription box f or fans of LEGOs and other studded brick building systems.  Each box comes with brick-related swag, including an exclusive build pack.

Everything in the box.  In a typical month, you can expect everything except the Build Pack to be brick-themed, rather than actual bricks or brick accessories.  This is a brick fan’s box, not a brick supply box.  However, the box now includes a brick booster pack loaded with LEGOs, in addition to the Build Pack; the latter, however, still remains the only structured build in the box.

Each box comes with BUILD magazine, a short glossy booklet with several single or double page features, like the Build Table, where fans submit pics of their creations. One page of BUILD lists the the contents of the box. BUILD is filled with fun stuff like fan-contributed pics and more info on the items in the box.

The Build Pack had an adorable turkey project this month.  The Build Pack contains all the needed pieces, and BUILD always has the complete instructions. This month had a variation – we got a TIE Fighter & X-Wing Fighter Set (which I haven’t yet built!).

There was a mini build challenge using your booster pack!

The Tee shirt has to be everyone’s favorite part of the box.  This month was a Choose Your Side Star Wars inspired shirt!

And to top it off, a pster featuring some Lego Star Wars items!

Of the growing number of (unofficial) LEGO fan boxes, Brick Builders Club is the lifestyle box, weighing heavily toward LEGO-themed merchandise, rather than actual LEGOs or third-party kits — though, as mentioned above, this edition contains more actual LEGO bricks than usual, and it looks like the Booster Bricks are becoming a recurring item.  At $34 (including shipping), it is in the middle of the pack price-wise. This box is perfect for a LEGO fan that prefers to purchase their own sets but still wants swag and other fun gear (just like a box for gamers – you buy the games, the box sends the swag).
