I have loved building blocks for longer than I can remember, and was thrilled when Brick Loot sent me a box to check out. Brick Loot is a box subscription company for LEGO® and Brick fanatics! Subscribers receive a monthly box filled with unique, custom and never-before-seen items that work with LEGO® bricks and custom building. Each themed Brick Loot box is filled with 4-8 items that are hand picked by Brick specialists who scour the world for the newest and coolest products to collect.
For October the theme is Arcade. This box contained an arcade game, with stickers for either Pixel Man or Moc Racer, a Pixel Monster, Exclusive Print Art, a Head Case, and even a little Gamer Figurine.
The first thing I opened was the Head Case. The top is very secure as it twists to come off, and is pretty roomy inside. I honestly had no idea what I wanted to store in it at first, but an idea came to me later.
Next I decided to beak into the Pixel Monster. While I have had building blocks for as long as I can remember, I've never had a kit to build a specific design, and was not too sure about how I would be able to follow the directions. I am please to say that the directions were pretty easy to follow along with, and since they were all pictures, I was easily able to make sure that I was putting everything together properly.
The couple of times that I did make a mistake with block placement, I would discover it on the next level as the instructions has me build up layer by layer. Really the biggest problem I had was not losing any of the pieces. I did lose one at one point of the building process and had to look ahead a few rows and figured out I could complete the Pixel Monster without it. Of course the very next day I found the missing piece, and managed to pull the monster apart where the piece was missing and put it in, and then put the monster back together. I did have a few extra pieces when I completed the project, and just put all the extras into the Head Case for safe keeping.
The final building project was the arcade game. This went by pretty fast after the time it took to build the Pixel Monster.
I have to say, there were a lot of specialty pieces for the arcade that I had never seen before, but the instructions were easy and it came together pretty quick. There were also instructions included for two more types of arcade machines, but the parts were not included, though if you have a variety of LEGO® already on hand, you might already have the parts you need.
I think the hardest part of the arcade was deciding between Moc Racer or Pixel Monster for the game, and I decided to go with Moc Racer since I already had a Pixel Monster. The stickers were easy to put on, and I love the detail that was put into it, including the Insert Quarter, and the coin return tray.
The little Gamer in the box is pretty darn cute, and is a Custom LEGO® Minifigurine. Overall I had blast building everything in my Brick Loot Box. My daughter though the Pixel Monster was cute, and my husband got a chuckle out of the Arcade and Gamer. I currently have the Exclusive Print Art tucked safely back into the delivery box with all the building instructions, and can't wait till we move and have a game room to hang it up in.
