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.

construtibles_ghost

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.

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.
BrickSwag_Oct_shirt

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.

Brickswag october box booster brick

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.
