Brick Swag October Unboxing.


Yes it is  November and I am just now posting the BrickSwag unboxing for October. Sometimes life is too busy for even LEGO. The October Box was my first BrickSwag Box. The theme was one of my favorites, Robots.

The shirt is a line up of LEGO robots and droids. I have all of those on the shirt. The one at the end is a peek at this month’s build. The design is on black which helps make the artwork pop. This is a new favorite of mine.

There was also a bag of bricks from Booster Bricks. This bag of bricks has a minifig. There’s about fifty bricks here plus the fig. You can see the interior of the magazine behind the bricks.

Brickswag build magazine and cards

This is the Build Magazine and the cards. It is a small but cool magazine. It is 12 pages not including the cover. It is  the size of a standard size of printer paper folded in half.

BrickSwag’s New Robot Mascot

BrickSwag_Oct_robot

The build for October is a  mini Brickbot. This robot is their mascot.  I’m a robot fan so I’m really happy with this guy. One of his eyes is half closed. He looks kind of sad. I could change it with another eye from my stock but I think it gives him a little more personality. I may have to find another partially closed eye to complete the look.

The BrickSwag brick is white and has the date on it.  I like these printed bricks. I have a small collection of these printed bricks from  Kickstarter Projects and special events. This will add nicely to my collection.

Creations for Charity Livestream Event Friday.


The Creations for Charity store closes for the 2015 season on November 30th. So It’s your last chance to help. C4C is an annual fundraiser for underprivileged children. LEGO builders create custom items from bricks, minifigs and MOCs. They donate the items to C4C, which sells them to buy LEGO sets for children. You can even have a custom project built for yourself.

creations for charity LEGO event

But before the store closes there is a special event friday evening.

For a period of 24 hours last year, LEGO fans from all over the world joined a live stream to help support Creations for Charity. From building LEGO sets, working on MOCs, discussing the LEGO hobby, to sorting LEGO; it’s safe to say that everyone involved had a great time and all for a great cause.

This year’s event will be building upon last year’s success and taking the art of building with and talking about LEGO for 24 hours non stop to new heights! With 24 hours of non stop LEGO action, this is surely going to be something you won’t want to miss. From 5pm EST on Friday November 27th to 5pm EST on Saturday November 28th, we’ll be fighting off sleep to bring you all kinds of LEGO goodness!

Please share and reblog this post to help get the word out.

Brick Swag November unboxing peek.


I recently started a BrickSwag subscription. It’s like the other surprise boxed but it has LEGO. Each box has a Brick themed Tee- shirt, some kind of mini-build, a printed brick and more. I got the November box a few days ago. I had a little time so I went ahead and made the build included with this box. Since is a turkey I wanted to go ahead and build it now.
brick swag november build lego turkey
This is a neat build.  A Turkey with vegetables on a platter. There is also the printed 2×3 block with #BrickSwag on one side and the month and year on the next side.  There is more in the box I just didn’t have time to photograph it all. I have a couple of days off in a row next week so hopefully I can get the who;e box photographed then. I actually got the October box as well but between the Ren faire and class, I haven’t had time to even build the October build.

I have begun the final project for class. I know what it will be but I have to plan and build it. Along with wrapping up all the other  project i need for class. The next couple months are going to be pretty busy with school so the blog may be quite for a while. There may be some stuff, like the rest of BrickSwag posted Thanksgiving weekend. And I plan on posting Star Wars Advent Calendar in December. And that may be it for the year.

Graduation is in January then that weekend is BrickFaire.

What do you think of Brick Swag? That’s not all that is in the box there’s a t-shirt, a mini magazine,  and bag of bricks, and a couple more things.  If there’s interest I’ll continue to blog the boxes. Next’s month theme is Force.
