Brick Loot is a monthly subscription box filled with LEGO-compatible items, bricks, and brick building accessories for LEGO fans. Brick Loot box is filled with 4-8 items that were hand picked by Brick specialists who scour the world for the newest and coolest products for you to collect. This box, like the last, is build-heavy, featuring mostly Brick Loot exclusive mini-builds (and some cool other stuff, too).
The box is no-nonsense, and packed with mini-builds and building accessories. It is a great subscription for adding bricks, specialty accessories like lighting elements, and themed mini-figs to your collection — it often serves as a sampler pack for trying out products from various third-party LEGO-compatible vendors.
The theme for this one is Operation: Mystery Box.
All the information is supplied on the card, including information about the different aftermarket companies. The style reminds me more and more of a car enthusiast magazine, with its emphasis on aftermarket lighting, paint, stickers, accessories, parts sourcing, and planning consultants.
Everything in the May 2016 Brick Loot box!
Lite-Up Bricks TNT Lego: We LOVE the Lite-Up Bricks that Brick Loot tends to send every month! My son got a giant kick out of the fact that it’s TNT “which belongs in Minecraft.” I couldn’t really tell how it was TNT, but he loved it.
Le-Glue Sampler Pack ($8.99 for full size 50ml) I totally dismissed this glue – which dissolves in warm water if you want to undo it – but I ended up using it in one of the builds!
This is totally out of order, but my son snapped a picture of me melding his bricks together. He’s 5 so he gets frustrated when he plays with the finished items and they don’t stay together. This solved that problem!
United Bricks Exclusive Special Ops Officer Minifigure: Hello Special Operations dude! You’re perfect for blowing stuff up! These are cute customized LEGO figures.
Brick Brigade Exclusive M46 Mounted 50 cal Machine Gun with Carriage: This build uses 100% LEGO bricks and you really can tell the difference between LEGO and the other ones.
This wasn’t a complicated build and my kiddo loved building this, which he had absolutely no idea it was supposed to be a machine gun.
Brick Loot Armored Beast BL-710: Finished build above – these are really neat metallic-sheened bricks which made for an awesome little beastie. E decided it was like a transformer and flew it all around!
USS Brick Loot Military Ship: My son was most excited to build this one, which we did first. It has the most pieces I can remember in a Brick Loot!
After quite some time building, we were rewarded with an awesome destroyer. As I mentioned the bricks aren’t LEGO quality but they do for a brick-obsessed child who begs for more LEGO daily.
Even though I’m not really a fan of the war theme, this box worked out really well for us. My son loved the boat and we had a lot of fun building everything together – three builds plus a minifig and a lite-up brick (and that awesome glue!).
