brick-loot-jul-theme

This month’s Brick Loot is themed “Ghost Hunters!” How timely!

brick-loot-jul-info

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.

brick-loot-jul-pke

PKE Meter – Value $10?

This is a 100% LEGO custom build by Kyle Peterson, a specialist in miniature accessories. This will be super helpful in ghost hunting.

brick-loot-jul-print

Exclusive Art Print by Drew Blank – Value $5?

(On the right is the monthly sticker). I can appreciate the inclusion of this art print on some level, but my kids cannot. This was a big miss for them.

brick-loot-jul-plus

brick-loot-jul-plus-2

Plus Plus – Bonus Pack

This is a sample pack of a completely different kind of block system called Plus-Plus, from Denmark. The kids do not seem super interested in these.

Ghost Treats Machine – Value $3?

This is a ghost-themed gumball machine, designed by BRICKLOVER18, a teenage LEGO fanatic. The top tile is a custom print by United Bricks. This is another one my kids don’t really care about. I have to admit, it seems little forced.

brick-loot-jul-minifig

Ghost Hunter Minifigure – Value $10?

This is a great little addition to my sons’ mighty collection of minifigures! Although, I have to ask: aren’t the new Ghost “Hunters” all females? What’s up with all these guys, Brick Loot?

Ghost Trap Light – Value $4?

My kids have several LiteUpBlocks thanks to this subscription, and they are truly the cornerstone of their LEGO collection. So fun!

brick-loot-jul-slime

Barrel-O-Slime – Value 2?

Yes, it really is a barrel of slime. This makes for a pretty good prop to go with this theme, I think.

Verdict: This is maybe the first Brick Loot we’ve ever received that wasn’t much of a hit at my house. The kids recently saw the original Ghostbusters move, and they were totally psyched about it! Even so, they weren’t really into this box. I personally think this one was kind of weak, too. Where’s the car? Where’s the fire house? I think they could have done a lot more with this fun and unique theme. If my estimates are anywhere near correct, I think the value just surpasses the cost of this box, too. Here’s hoping next month is better for us!

  1. I love the way Brick Loot gives opportunities to smaller custom brick companies, and gets cool little models into the hands of kids! Many of these small companies produce bricks that LEGO doesn’t make, but their bricks can be fully compatible with LEGO, so when the kids build, they have these fun unique parts to play with. I’m really a fan of this box and hope it grows!

  2. If anyone doesn’t want the plus plus blocks, i’ll take them. My 3 year old loves them.

  3. Not really a whole lot to build this month :-/. The figures look cool though.

  4. While the theme was fun, my son wasn’t excited with much in this box. We had saved it for him to build on vacation. Definitely a miss this month, and low value as well. I agree, this box was missing a vehicle or building, or even a ghost.
