Just like the Terminator, when you have a BrickLoot Subscription you can expect BrickLoot to be back in your mailbox month-after-month. Unlike the plot of most of the Terminator movies, you’ll actually be looking forward to its appearance! And August was another movie-inspired surprise with a BrickBot theme.
10% off 1 or 3 Month Subscriptions
Xerk-Bots (FIVE!): When I first opened the box I was amazed to see 5 minibuilds of various Xerk-Bots. Each box had a different robot of 25-26 pieces each. My BrickLoot had blue, red, white, yellow and green Xerk-Bots. It turns out that they want us to combine the 5 Xerk-Bots to create a MEGA and enter it into a Bot Battle Contest. They also added another surprise (Exclusive Light Kit, more on that later) to add to the MEGA. The winner will win a 3 Month Brick Loot Subscription! You have to upload your Robot picture to BrickLoots Facebook page by September 1, 2015. See brickloot.com for contest details, I’m just the messenger! (Estimated Value of all 5 Xerk-Bots, $30)
Light-Up BRICKS (MORE THAN ONE):So there are two Light Up blocks. One is the usual LiteUp block, which I love. Turn it on with a flip of a switch. I plan to use all my Lite Up Bricks on my LEGO Haunted Castle. Push Play to see it in action in my Instagram Video below. (Estimated Value, $2)
The other one is actually from Laser Pegs. I’ve never used Laser Pegs before, they seem like they are translucent and that a Light-Up Piece would make them spectacular. See mine in action. The one that arrived in BrickLoot seems like it arrived on a battery operated lanyard. This would be cool to wear to a theme park at night. Push play to see it in action on my Instagram video below. (Estimated Value, $8)
In my #BrickLoot – a #laserpeg that lights up two different ways. It’s on a lanyard. A video posted by Erin Taylor (@speak2erin) on
EXCLUSIVE BUILD: Digging in more, there was an exclusive Brick Loot build designed by Joe Meno of Brick Journal. It was an Ameno-bot with 52 pieces that uses real LEGO bricks. (Estimated Value, $7.99)
EXCLUSIVE MINIFIGURE: And we all love minifigures, right? I know I am personally anxiously awaiting series X to be released. But while I wait, BrickLoot provided me with an Al B. Back that looks a lot like a beaten up terminator. OMLEGO! It was designed and printed exclusively for Brick Loot by United-Bricks.com. I am SO hoping that more of these end up in the BrickLoot boxes. (Estimated Value, $10)
CARD & STICKER: There was also a STUDS card, this time of Brick Loot creator Parker Krex. And there was a cute Rise of the Brick Loots Sticker. (Estimated Value of both items combined, $1.50)
What is BrickLoot: BrickLoot is a subscription box for brick lovers – you know, LEGOs, nanoblock, kre-o, etc. Each box is a surprise, you never know what you might find! Exclusive builds, light up bricks and minfigures. Overall, this is now my SECOND favorite Brick Loot box we ever received. Like if I scored the June Box 99%, this one would get 98.9% approval from me. It’s amazing to see how each Brick Loot box is just so awesome and leaves you excited for the next one!
Estimated Value of August 2015 BrickLoot: $59.49
Actual Cost: $27.00/month, $25.00/month for 3 months, $23.00/month for 6 months
