This month’s Brick Loot is themed “Operation: Mystery Box.” How enigmatic! It seems to be all about military tactics at sea… 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.
M46 Mounted 50 cal Machine Gun with Carriage – Value $12?
Such advanced weaponry! This gun is an exclusive 100% LEGO Custom Kit designed by John Canepa of Brick Brigade, LLC. I know the boys will have a blast with this. Pun intended!
USS Brick Loot – Value $15?
This ship looks really awesome! Brick Loot has sent the kids plenty of military-themed items before, and it’s always well-received. There’s something about naval battles, though, that’s just so much more intense! I think they will love this.
Armored Beast – Value $5
My kids have received several of these 3-play items from Brick Loot in the past, and they always have fun with them. You can make three different armed robots with this one!
Brick TNT from LiteUp Blocks – Value $2?
You can’t go wrong with LiteUp Blocks! I don’t think the boys have any TNT yet, so this will be a welcome addition to their arsenal.
Special Ops Officer – Value $10?
This is a custom 100% LEGO Minifigure from United Bricks. Cool!
Le-Glue Sampler Pack – Value $1?
I strongly discourage the kids from gluing their bricks together, but I guess if they’re going to do it, this would be the glue to use. It holds very strongly until you decide you want to break the bricks apart again. Then you immerse them in warm water and the glue dissolves! Very neat!
Verdict: My kids love Brick Loot, and this month’s theme is another win. I have come to expect a good value on Brick Loot Packages, and this month is right on par with that expectation. The value is about $45 if my guesses are near accurate, which is great for a $33 box. Plus so many of these items are exclusives! That always makes them extra special!
