My 5 year old totally flips out when he sees this box – he knows exactly what it is and demands to review it immediately.

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 Have Bricks Will Travel.

Everything in the August 2016 Brick Loot box! This is the only box I can remember without Liteup Bricks!

Snapo Sample Pack (approx $10) We have a big set of these so this slide-together “bricks” were a welcome addition! The little box came with a few extra outside the package…

Felix Winter Exclusive Art Print & Sticker

I’m not crazy about the Art Print as an item, but unlike last month it seemed more like a bonus than an item, so it was a fun and happy addition.

BR Lego Minifigure Polybag: Well if I actually read the info card I would have found that this was a hard to find item commemorating the Danish “BR” toy store’s 50th. Whatever, I ripped that puppy out of the package and set him up.

Red Telephone Box Piggy Bank: Oh. EM. Gee. So this box is really for my 5 year old but he doesn’t quite have the dexterity and instructions following to put everything together, so I assemble it for him, and we have a great time. I about flipped my lid over these micro bricks – they’re really small.

It took me a couple days between unboxings to wrap this guy up. Honestly it would have gone a lot faster with more modular building instructions which I eventually figured out. This is going up high because if anyone ever disassembles it I might lose my mind. I spent so long building this that I totally forgot it was a coin bank – there’s an opening in the top to drop your dough into.

Mystery Defenders: These heroes look just like some of your favorite DC & Marvel superheroes!Brick Loot August 2016 (2)

A quick fun build – and my boys hovered the entire time. This one is going to need to get glued because they want to play with it so much. Huge hit.

Chicago Water Tower Exclusively Designed by Rocco Buttliere: This build is from an architecture student at Illinois Institute of Technology in Chicago where Brick Loot is based. He’s building the entire downtown to a 1:650 scale. Crazy!

I loved how the back of the card had all sorts of info on the real thing.

This box was all about the builds and we weren’t disappointed with HOURS of building time! It was great for my family – it gave me a build to really dig into over a few days, with easier builds for the kids to participate in. The theme was fun and I think it’s great that Brick Loot is still finding unique ways to brick it up!

    Oh my we have some of those teeny tiny brick builds. I thunk we’ve done some mine craft guys and maybe a minion. Whenever they come I always pass it right on to Michael. They are way to small for me
