Brick Loot Subscription Box Review – February 2016
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!
My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (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 comic books! That’s such an awesome theme! 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.
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 except where noted.
Comic Book Tile Pack – Value $3
The comic book tile pack is on the upper right of the picture. Brick Builders Pro makes some pretty ingenious and hilarious tiles! On the left is a coupon for 5% off at Ever Block, and on the lower right is a sticker.
The Dark Knight – Value $12?
It’s Batman! The kids love the Dark Knight. I love that it’s just his giant head. This is a 100% LEGO Exclusive Custom Kit designed by Dave Kaleta.
Brick Popper – Value $6.99
Red Archer Minifigure – Value $7?
We have a brick popper already thanks to subscription boxes, but they are really a big time- and frustration-saver! My nephew is also a big LEGO fanatic, so I am going to give him this one. The Red Archer minifigure is extra cool because he’s a relatively obscure comic book character.
Demon Star – Value $12?
It’s the newest Super Villain, Demon Star! It’s actually a story line in Batman, so this character is new to my sons, and a Brick Loot exclusive!
Verdict: My kids love Brick Loot! They are fledgling comic collectors, so they don’t really get all the significance of everything they received this month, but they are thrilled to have it nonetheless. I 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 several of these items (the ones with the question mark after them) since they are exclusives and customs, but if my guesses are anywhere close to accurate, the value comes to around $40, which is good for the $33 price. More important to me, though, is that my sons have a great time with their Brick Loot goodies and are entertained for hours.
