There was also a bag of bricks from Booster Bricks. This month there’s a challenge to create a holiday build.

This is the Build Magazine and the cards. It is a small but cool magazine. Once again there are five trading cards. I’m displaying them in a LEGO business card holder.

BrickSwag’s December Builds

brickSwag_dec_tie

The build for December is a one of two Star Wars space ship sets. I got the X-wing and Tie Fighter set. It a cool mini build that you may have seen before.  The set was once a give away set at Toys R US. Some times they have build events for children. But what about AFOL? Well, Constructibles takes the instructions and build the sets. The BrickSwag brick is black and has the December 2015.

The other possible set this month was a mini Star Wars Rebels Ghost Ship. You can get either set from constructibles.net. Both of theses sets were once Toys R Us Building events sets. Constructibles took the instructions and collected the parts so people who miss the events could build the sets.  They sell packs of LEGO pick a brick and LEGO Store Monthly Builds.

I thinking about getting the Ghost see but next month the Ghost Micro-Fighter ship comes out and I’ll be getting that one.

Today’s we have the Bounty Hunter, IG-88. Much cooler than the Battle Droids from previous years. It’s a cooler character. As for the parts the difference between IG-88 and the battle droids is the overall color and a different head. I wish the arms turned at the elbow so it could hold its guns.
