Brick Loot comes with an information card detailing the box contents and theme. This month’s theme is Brick to the Future. They also included a Brick to the Future sticker.

Flux Capacitator Lego Build by Tyler Clites – Suggested Value $20.00

Tyler Clite designed this 100% LEGO build inspired by the movie Back to the Future. It consisted of 93 pieces and was a little challenging for my son, but nothing that he wasn’t able to figure out independently. He had no idea what a Flux Capacitator was and the movie theme means nothing to him. I think if you grew up in the 1980s this is a cool build, but otherwise if seems a little too specific to have general appeal the way dinosaurs or superheroes do from previous month’s boxes.

Flux Capacitator LED Light Kit – Suggested Value $10.00

The 9 LED light kit when added to the Flux Capacitator build, adds a very realistic flashing appeal. The lights alternate so they aren’t all lit up at once in the photo.

16 x 16 Baseplate – Suggested Value $2.00

Brick Loot is now selling baseplate bundles in different sizes. We are always happy to get more baseplates because my son like to build his own larger creations and always starts with a basic baseplate. This one is the bright Kelly green color that I think of when I think of LEGO plates which mimic grass nicely.

LEGO Tile Pack – Suggested Value $5.00

These exclusive printed LEGO tiles were funny props from the movie. There is an initial sketch for the flux capacitator, the newspaper headline about saving the clock tower and the Sports Almanac.

Brick to the Future Minifigure Sticker Pack – Suggested Value $6.00

These stickers can be added to your minifigures to make them into characters from the movie Back to the Future. There are different outfits for Marty and Doc as well as some other characters. We would have preferred some actual minifigures like we have come to expect from this subscription. My son didn’t want to put stickers on his minifigures so we will just hang onto this sheet for now.

Exclusive Art Print Designed by Greg Hyland – Suggested Value $5.00

Greg Hyland is a writer, illustrator, designer and artist who has worked on LEGO lines such as The LEGO Movie and LEGO Marvel Super Heroes. This print is a Brick Loot exclusive.

Verdict: Brick Loot is a fun subscription for any LEGO fan. The value of this month’s box is $48. I personally didn’t find as much value this month as some of the other months. Having only one build in the box and no minifigure was a bit of a letdown. This theme, though fun for me to have a walk down memory lane, meant nothing to my six-year-old son who has never heard of, let alone seen the movie Back to the Future. We prefer their boxes which have more general appeal.

What do you think of Brick Loot?

  1. I’m always interested in Lego box reviews, so thanks for covering this subscription! I’m still waiting for a box that feels like it’d be more fun/better value than just picking out some minifigures and extra bricks for myself on Bricklink.

    The thing is that a lot of AFOLs (Adult Fans of Lego) are going to be put off by the fact that BrickLoot uses other brick brands for some of its items (people have quality concerns, some brands don’t have such good clutch power, etc. etc.), while kids, like you’ve said, most likely won’t be familiar with Back to the Future in the first place, so the hero piece (and I must say I’m impressed by the light-up feature) in this box may fall a bit flat for them.

    Also, that picture of a brick-built DeLorean looks fantastic; I wonder if it would’ve worked better for them to make a set of bricks and instructions to build that their main item – it seems like it’d be an appealing vehicle to make and play with even for kids who don’t know the movie…

    • Angeline you are so right that putting in a DeLorean build would have made all the difference. My son was actually kind of heartbroken when he saw “that cool car” and realized it wasn’t in the box.
