Everything in the May 2017 Brick Loot box! 

Exclusive Art Print by Greg Hyland

This is probably my favorite print from this subscription so far! Marty & Doc Brown & everyone else, plus the Delorean is LEGO-fied!

Theme sticker! Perfect for sticking on a notebook or anywhere you want to display your brick-fection.

Brick To The Future Minifigure Sticker Pack: There wasn’t a minfig this month, which was a bit of a disappointment to my 6 year old. This sticker pack is designed to dress up your existing minifigs. Based on last month’s sticker on the build, they’re nearly impossible to take off, so I wouldn’t use them except on totally generic figures.

Brick Loot 16 x 16 Base Plate

Every box included a 16 x 16 base LEGO, Mega Bloks, and KRE-O compatible base plate! I think this is great because for some reason we actually don’t have enough!

You can save 20% on a 10 pack in the Brick Loot Shop ($11.88)

Exclusive Tile Pack

These little tiles everything we need to make the most out of our space-time travel, including the Sports Almanac, mathematical details on the Flux Capacitor, the Hill Valley Telegraph, and a Radioactive warning. The tiles are just the right size for a minifig to hold.

The Flux Capacitor Build Design by Tyler Clites

With 93 pieces, this is the largest 100% LEGO Brick build Brick Loot has ever sent out!

It was designed by Tyler Clites.

My Brickgineer had little difficulty completing this build mostly by himself, although he had no idea what it was (he used it as a boat!).

Here’s the completed product.

The Flux Capacitor LED Light Kit

The box also came with a USB plugin light set.

And here it is all lit up! You can see an animated gif of it here (a little worried with moving lights it could cause issues, so I’m not inserting it into the post).

This was a very different box than we’ve received in the past – only 1 build and no minifigure! I felt actually that it was a lot more geared to AFOLs (that’s Adult Fans of LEGOs to all you adults reading this on behalf of your kids) than the kids. My son & I still had a great time together and I’m not too secretly happy to display my new Flux Capacitor next to my Delorean, but I might be a little bummed if this was my first box. I’m pretty sure that the box will return to the normal mix next month, and I had a great time geeking out with this one but I think adding a minifigure would have made the box a little bit better (even a generic one to put the stickers on).

    My 8-year-old was not impressed with the May box. I ended up ordering the March Brickasaurus box for him because he was disappointed in this month box. He’s not interested in the Back to Future movies. I thought it might include other builds which is why I took a chance on starting the subscription in May. I think the box is great, but I am also a big Back to the Future fan.
