December 2018 Brick Loot “Adventure Under the Sea” Review
This month the later builds are related to the theme, while some of the smaller items are more general LEGO accessories. I like the mix included this month – so let’s get started on our builds!
Each delivery arrives with a card that details each item in your box.
Exclusive! 100% LEGO Build Designed by Tyler Clites
The first build contained 61 pieces and a detailed instruction insert explaining how to make this nifty seahorse. This set is exclusively designed for Brick Loot by Tyler Clites. I think that the directions were easy to follow, and I loved how playful this build was! The seahorse has a lot of ball joints enabling you to bend its tail any which-way you want!
Mini City “Aquarium” – Value $12.49? (Based on a similar item here)
This Mini City Aquarium is 136 pieces and much like the other mini city builds that I’ve received, I quite enjoyed both building this aquarium and adding it to my collection of mini buildings! The instructions were clear and easy for me to follow. I loved the result and the detail that this little building featured. Working doors, real windows, a few decals to add detail, and even a whale on top!
Mega Cape Pack – Retail Value $7.99
Turn your LEGO Minifigures into Super Heros! This assorted fabric package of 35 different capes and accessories has something for everyone. You can see that my Aquaboy selected a collared off-white cape for his grand adventures in the photos below. To apply these capes you just slip them over the arms of your mini figures.
Minifigure Display Keychain – Retail Value $3.88
This fun little display keychain fits one Minifigure perfectly. This would be an adorable ornament on your tree or an embellishment on a child’s backpack. This item comes in red, blue, and green – I received the green version.
Aquaboy LEGO Minifigure – Value $15? (Based on a similar item here)
Each month, a 100% LEGO custom mini-figure is created to match the theme. These figures can be quite collectible and retail for $15.00 on the site. Aquaboy is in full superhero gear – complete with a trident.
Iron On Patch
The last item is a 2″ x 4″ iron-on patch featuring icons and the words “eat, sleep, build.” This would again be a cute addition to a child’s backpack, or even something you could iron on to a piece of clothing or simply hang on a corkboard in their bedroom or playroom.
Verdict: This was a great box and I think the underwater theme is one that would be loved by many people. This is the first month in a while that didn’t include light of some type – and I’m totally fine with that. I felt like this box went back to basics and included some really fun stuff and quality builds. Value is hard to quantify since so many of these items are exclusive to this box. I paid $33 ($27 + $6 shipping) – and I think that the actual retail value is at least that amount, if not a little higher, so I do feel like I got a solid value.
To Wrap Up:
Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No. You’ll find the current available theme in their top banner of the website.
Value Breakdown: Since this box costs $33.00 with shipping, each of the 6 items inside has an average cost of $5.50
