Everything in my September box!

Brick Loot Sticker: A large sticker with a cool depiction of two items from this month’s box.

16×16 Blue Baseplate: Every other Brick Loot has come with an exclusive, cartoonish art print. This month, they sent a quite different item of similar size, a 16X16 blue baseplate.

The plate is LEGO-compatible and large enough to display either of our two builds this month.

Blue Light Up Brick: This month’s accessory was a light-up brick. Light-up components used to be in every box, but they took a break from them.

This brick is different from previous light-ups, however, in that it is completely self-contained. With no wires to run or power pack to incorporate in your build, this brick can be built into your creation without having to create a special setup for it. Only the little switch sticks out beyond the silhouette of a normal 2×8 brick.

It lights up with a bright LED at one end.

United Bricks Captain I.C. Berg Custom LEGO Minifig: A bearded ship’s captain in full dress blues.

His outfit has a good amount of detail, as does his wrinkled face.

The graphics even include full-wrap “embroidered” cuffs.

Like all United Bricks’ figures, the design is also printed on the back (though this one is pretty simple).

Brick 101 Great Shark Build Designed by Dave Pickett: A fearsome sea dweller to patrol the waters around your ship.

The build includes all needed pieces and full instructions.

My six year old son was able to build this from start to finish without assistance.

It is a very cool shark, with points of articulation in both the tail, jaw, and lateral fins.

Of course, the teeth are emphasized.

It is quite impressive how economical they were in the design — it isn’t huge, but it looks just like a shark!

Titanic Ship: This awesome build creates a fair approximation of the ill-fated ship.

There was also a double-sided fact sheet with trivia regarding the Titanic and it’s sinking. Perfect for getting you in the building mood.

The kit includes instructions and a big bag of pieces.

This build was a little trickier, but he only needed help with a few sections. My youngest deconstructed the ship a bit when we weren’t looking, and the rebuild was incredibly difficult. I take that as a testament to the clarity of the instructions, as it was easy to build following them.

The trickiest part was getting the smoke stacks to stay on, since each was only connected by a single stud on a swivel.

The rope across the top gives it a bit of a ship in a bottle feel.

It is so big, it barely fits on our 16×16 base!

My son was really excited about this box! I was impressed that he immediately recognized the Titanic and knew why it was famous. He thought the builds were cool and fun. I do like the composition of the boxes recently, as they’ve included multiple builds, a mini-fig, and some accessories for you or your mini-figs. I liked the non-wired light better than the wired light accessories previously included, as my youngest son inevitably destroys those. We always have a great time building with Brick Loot, and it is a great subscription for young and old brick fans.
