Brick Loot Subscription Box Review

Every once in a while I get the occasional subscription box to review. When this box arrived from Brick Loot, my nine-year old son freaked out a bit. He's a bit of a LEGO fanatic. Brick Loot provides a monthly subscription of about $45 worth of LEGO related goodies, including a custom build kit, minifigure, and accessories, for about $25 / month, plus shipping.
You'll never know exactly what you'll be getting but when you open things up, the recipient gets a big surprise. Of course, if you check online first, you might get an idea of what is coming next month.

This month's delivery from BrickLoot included a Head Case, which is basically a mini carrying case shaped like a LEGO head. The mini figurine is in the LEGO head. Also provided is miniature pieces for building Pixel Man.
Of course, he looks more like Pac Man. This is rated 6+ for building but even I had trouble with it to get the 3D spherical effect. I do like the look, though it is fragile. Perhaps smaller hands would have an easier job with it but it took me a couple of layers to understand the build instructions.
Besides the minifigurine, my son's favorite part of the build was the custom kit to build a miniature arcade game. Instructions were also provided to build two other arcade machines, but you need to provide your own bricks for those.
In case you couldn't tell, the whole box had a kind of gamer / arcade theme. Everything was described on a pamphlet inside the box. Great value overall, though I think we got through everything in just a few hours. Will certainly enjoy longer than that but the excitement is opening the box and building everything as quickly as possible.

Great Christmas gift idea. Can get subscriptions of 1, 3, or 6 months. Just remember to consider the shipping costs in addition to the monthly box charge. Brick Loot ships to a limited set of countries worldwide.
