Brick Swag Unboxing November 2015


I posted the Brickswag mini build the other day here is the rest of the November BrickSwag Box. BrickSwag is like other surprise boxes but it has LEGO bricks. Each box has a Brick themed Tee shirt, some kind of mini-build, a printed brick and more.

There was also a bag of bricks from Booster Bricks. This month there is a build challenge the winner will get a bucket of random bricks to add to their collection. If I had time I would build something.

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.

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!
