Brick Loot Subscription Box Review – July 2015
Brick Loot is a box from a new but growing trend of LEGO subscription services! My kids are HUGE LEGO fanatics, so I was really interested in trying this out with them!
Brick Loot kindly sent us this box for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
The Subscription Box: Brick Loot
The Cost: $33 / month ($27 + $6 shipping) with options to save money on longer subscription lengths
The Products: Interlocking bricks, brick sets, and accessories from various manufacturers
Ships to: US only
The information card that comes with this subscription is pretty large and details all the included products. It also lists the websites where similar items can be purchased. This month’s theme is “Brick Wars,” and it’s all about building up our armed forces!
Battle Kit – Value $5
Army Assault Accessory Kit – Value $6
First, we need some troops, and they need to be armed. Heavily. The item on the right is a blind bag soldier minifigure complete with a weapon and desert fatigues. On the left is a crate full of weapons and other battle gear! Both items were made exclusively for Brick Loot by BrickForge (and thus values are based on their existing shop merchandise).
US Army Jeep – Value $20
Next, here’s a sweet ride for our boys overseas – a custom US Army jeep kit from Brickmania! Brickmania makes custom kits using actual LEGO brand bricks.
F-2 Fighter – Value $2.99
This little attack aircraft is made by Star Diamond and will fit very nicely into our battle scenario. It includes decals for customization.
Mini Tank – Value $1.89
And finally, what battle would be complete without the heavy artillery? I’m not sure what that even means, but here’s a cool little tank for our soldiers!
The Verdict: This is our third package from Brick Loot, and so far the kids are absolutely loving this subscription! I came up with a value of about $36 this time, which is less than usual, but I’m still happy with the value overall. Plus the boys were really excited about the military theme this month, and so far, we have not had any issues with the quality of the sets they have sent us.
