Brick Loot Subscription Box Review November 2015 - box

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).

Brick Loot Subscription Box Review November 2015 - info

This month’s Brick Loot is all about planes! Fun! 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.

Brick Loot Subscription Box Review November 2015 - quadro-plane

Quadro Plane – Value $12?

This is a build exclusive to Brick Loot by Tyler Cities. With 62 pieces, you can build 4 different aircarft!

Brick Loot Subscription Box Review November 2015 - lite-minifigure

LED Blinking Aircraft Light Kit by LiteupBlocks – Value $3?

LiteupBlocks make the coolest bricks! The boys love having light elements on their creations.

The Aviator Minifigure – Value $12?

Of course we need a pilot! We’re starting to have a bit of a collection of custom minifigures from United Bricks, and this little guy will fit in just fine. 100% LEGO.

Brick Loot Subscription Box Review November 2015 - skyborg-bomber

SKYBORG – Value $8?

This is another of Brick Loot’s awesome “3 Play” sets. It can be built 3 different ways to create unique aircraft. Cool!

Brick Bomber – Value $8?

This is probably the most detailed, complex looking of all the planes this month, and I believe it actually drops bombs! I know the boys will love that!

The Verdict: My kids love Brick Loot! 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 $43, 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.

What do you think of Brick Loot?

  1. The love you have for this subscription box is based on a huge misunderstanding of the value of Lego and imitation brands. Everything except the Quatro Plane are cheap Chinese Lego knockoffs. Not only won’t they be truly compatible with Lego but they will break very soon. The Skyborg and Brick Bomber sets can be found in flea markets and online for $1-2 each. The aviator minifig knock-off is also worth $1. “Exclusive Builds” doesn’t mean anything in the world of construction blocks and the value of 62 small Lego bricks is about $4.
