It’s been a slow day today but today in the mail, I received the June 2015 Brick Builders Club subscription box. If you’re a new reader and haven’t heard of this, it’s a box curated by the Brick Fest Live crew which contains t-shirts, parts packs, sometimes LEGO sets, and more. For the month of June, I believe it has to do something with summer or the beach.

Recently, I received a surprise Brick Loot June 2015 subscription box at my doorstep. I first did a review when they first launched at the end of last year. I had some mixed feelings about it since it was advertised as “a monthly box subscription company geared towards LEGO and BRICK Lovers” but I didn’t expect that it would include some clone brands.
Let’s just jump into the box and see what we get. This month’s brick Loot box is called Brickasaurus Park to celebrate the release of Jurassic World in theaters. Since this is a non-paid review, I’m going to give my full honest opinion on it from a typical LEGO fan’s perspective.
The first thing I noticed was the custom Nerdasaurus Rex build by our good friend Tommy Williamson of BrickNerd. As you can see, it’s a pretty cute and nerdy T-Rex. In my eyes, this was one of the few things that interested me as LEGO purists wouldn’t like to see what else is included in the box besides one other item.
The next thing is a Nanoblock set NBA_010 featuring a Stegosaurus and a Tyrannosaurus Rex. Currently this set retails for $26.99 on Amazon. Nanoblock is a clone brand that has a similar design of LEGO bricks in a smaller scale.
Next up are some items that I honestly do not want to mix in with my LEGO bricks. These are some buildable animals that are clearly Chinese knock-offs by a company going by Wange Toys or Wange Industrial Co. … Continue
