Brick Loot Subscription Box Review – December 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
Good to Know: All bricks from Brick Loot are either LEGOS or are LEGO compatible.
This month’s Brick Loot is all about “Space Fight”! OK, that completely cracks me up. Let’s not step on any trademarked toes, shall we? The information card (right) 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 is often the only paper that comes in this box, but this month there were also some stickers and a couple of coupons for Brick Journal and Vinyl is Your Friend.
Note: Pretty much everything that comes in Brick Loot is an exclusive build or custom item made just for Brick Loot, which is awesome! It also means that I don’t have a retail value for most of them, so all the values listed below are based on similar items.
100% LEGO Galaxy Fighter Space Ship – Value $12?
I love how this has a little clear plastic compartment for the minifig to fight from within! The kids will love this.
LED Lightsaber by LiteupBlocks – Value $3?
We have several LiteupBlocks thanks to Brick Loot, but this is definitely the coolest!
Galaxy Cadet Minifigure – Value $12?
I like that this guy doesn’t look too much like any of the characters from Star Wars. Maybe the kids will have their own adventure instead of just acting Star Wars out over and over again.
Space Hunter & Galactic Enforcer – Value $8 each?
Two more cool space war ships to add to the action!
Space Egg – Value $10?
We have received these eggs in Brick Loot before, they’re kind of like blind bags in that you don’t know which kit you’re getting. In this case it’s one of four builds of cool space vehicles.
The Verdict: My kids love Brick Loot! (They also love love love a certain space movie that’s coming out very soon). They’re starting to build up cool collections of minifigures, LiteupBlocks, and multi-build vehicles thanks to Brick Loot. I also like that the pieces are all LEGO or LEGO compatible so that when they eventually lose a piece from a kit, they can still use all the remaining pieces in their Master Builder kit. I’m really unsure of the values of all these items since they are all exclusives and customs, but if my guesses are anywhere close to accurate, the value comes to around $53, which is good for the $33 price. More important to me, though, is that my sons have a great time with these and are entertained for hours.
