Tons of spooky stuff this month. The card gives a little info on everything in the box, including info about the different aftermarket companies that design the included brick accessories.

Everything in the October box!

Brick Loot Sticker: The sticker had a pic of the robo-skeleton and spooky mansion build from the box.

Exclusive Art Print by Greg Hyland: Every Brick Loot comes with an exclusive art print – they come bagged for safekeeping.


It’s Frankenstein! The design looks just like a movie poster for the Boris Karloff classic — they even nailed the font used for the credits.


Tinker Bots Key Chain – It features My First Robot, an original Tinker Bot character who introduces children to the world of programming and coding. He looks like Wall-E, don’t you think? Or Johnny 5. Depends on how old you are!

It also includes a discount card for the Tinker Bots My First Robot.

…and info on other parts if you want to build your very own robot.

BONUS! Pumpkin Guts – An orange flubber toy just in time for Halloween.

It’s soft like jelly and fun to play with.

E-Blox Spooky Coffin – This color-changing Spooky Coffin wowed the kids.

It’s made by E-Blox, a company that has developed bricks with conductive paths built right into the blocks.When put together, you can form circuits to activate lights, motors, and other devices without needing extra wires. It includes a leaflet with build instructions and a general guide on how to properly assemble the pieces.

There’s also this safety reminder sheet with a 9-volt safety rules for kids.

The LED cycles through multiple colors. It started out red.

It also has an orange, yellow, and green phase.

Lastly, it turned blue and purple before beginning the cycle again!

It’s as big as the palm of my kid’s hand. A little switch on the side of the large battery block lets you turn it on and off easily.

If you wish to buy a piece from E-Blox, they also included a code for 20% off your first order. The product literature made it clear that the company is working on creating all manner of activated components to work with the circuit bricks. This is a really awesome idea!

Bones Minifigure – This Lego skeleton is a perfect addition to our Halloween brick ensemble. He looks like the robot skeletons from the LEGO Movie.

It’s a well-detailed mini-figure, and you can see it is built with genuine LEGO parts.

The kids think this will look good together with the Spooky Coffin.

LEGO City Jungle ATV Car 30355 ($8.75) – This Lego Polybag features a mini all-terrain vehicle (ATV) and a machete-wielding mini-figure.

The simple build includes complete instructions.

The kids were all occupied building this little masterpiece.

Here it is, a yellow and black ATV with rolling wheels, and a stand alone hunter minifigure. She looks great!

The mini-figure operates the ATV. It also has a pair of machetes (they sent an extra)! This is a Brick Loot Halloween treat – a Lego build!

BrickNerd’s Tommy Williamson Spooky Manor – This 90-piece building from BrickNerd is one of the main attractions of our Halloween Brick ensemble.

The instruction sheet is really helpful and easy to comprehend.

It looks awesome, doesn’t it? The shutters hang off of single pegs, so they actually twist and hang crooked for an extra spooky look.

The manor may be small in size but the details are impressive. I liked the way they incorporated the brick wall textured pieces to give the appearance that the siding had fallen off.

LED Light Kit: This month’s accessory was a Led Light Kit. It comes with a USB plug for power.

It has three bright green lights.

They are perfect for lighting up the manor! It gives the piece a more creepy vibe.

The kids always eagerly await Brick Loot — my son especially loves the manageable builds and mini-figs. It has a good mix of mini-builds, mini-figures and accessories. If you like using lights with your bricks, this is a good subscription, as there is a lighting accessory in nearly every box. This collection, and the choice of light, were perfect for Halloween. We had a good time building the kits, especially the Spooky Manor with the green LED light. Children love this subscription, but it’s great for any Lego collector/AFOL too!
