It’s time to take a look at another BrickSwag box from the Brick Builders Club! We always get excited when we see this box in the mailbox and look forward to seeing what cool Lego-oriented items have been included. There is usually a t-shirt, a couple of different brick packs (some lego brand, some not) and the Build Magazine as well as trading cards and a poster. Each box varies in what you get. So, what cool things did the Brick Builders Club send us for January?
First, we will take a look at the t-shirt for this month.
In honor of Valentine’s Day, they sent a really cool black t-shirt that basically shows an x-ray with a heart. It’s not necessarily lego related, however, it is a pretty cool t-shirt.
There was a poster included in this box that was funny in an unfortunate way. It was also appropriate for Valentine’s Day and quite cute. The poor guy just doesn’t have a chance!
One of the sets of bricks that came in the box was brought by Constructibles. According to the Build Magazine included, it appears there was the chance to get one of two sets in your box.
The other pack of bricks that were included was a booster pack. It is a bag of random bricks to add to your collection. In my son’s case, he doesn’t need additional Legos for his collection. They’re EVERYWHERE! However, for that kid that doesn’t have tons of Legos, this gives them a few extras each month they receive the box.
For that trading card fan, there is five additional cards for your collection. I’m not sure if every box has the same cards, however, I think my favorite this round was the BlockHead. It could have something to do with the fact that lately my son has “sucked” me into the world of Minecraft and this guy looks a lot like Steve.
This Magazine had some pretty cool information in it. First there was a list of locations you can visit a Lego-themed exhibit. I found two that are within driving distance and could constitute a future road trip. There was also an article on the Old vs New Lego Logo on the bricks. Comparing the old LEGO to the new one and the differences in the type. In honor of Valentine’s Day, the magazine included a review of the Seasonal Lego set, “Valentine’s Cupid Dog” (40201) and, for the person who has plenty of legos to custom-build, they have provided instructions from AbbiesDables.com on how to build a spaceship.
The BrickSwag Team also wanted to inform their subscribers that they travel with the Brick Fest Live! and provide a list of dates and locations in the magazine.
So, did you get your January 2016 Brick Swag box? How did you like it?
