As we mentioned in a previous post a couple of weeks ago, there is a new LEGO Retro Storage Brick that is available at Target. This new exclusive item will only be in stores and online for limited time. We’ve received a review copy of the LEGO Storage Brick and T-Shirt and here are my thoughts on it.
The Storage Brick itself is in the shape of a round 1×1 brick in transparent orange. The packaging states the brick is 12.5 cm x 18 cm. which makes it a little bigger than the small Pick-A-Brick cup and a little smaller than the large Pick-A-Brick cup. A note of advice if you’re planning on using it for storing small elements like studs and such. Don’t. The reason is because they will get stuck in the groove below and you’ll have to find something to pry them out. Other than that, the Storage Brick is just a glorified Pick-A-Brick cup.
The other item that’s in the Retro Stroage Brick combo pack is the t-shirt that is included. It’s a bright yellow shirt that features the various logos in LEGO’s history like the one that is prominent across the chest which is from 1953. It also has a tattered look to give it a retro feel. The back of the shirt features the current logo. The only downside of the t-shirt is that it is only in kids medium which makes a majority of us AFOLs sad that we aren’t able to wear it.
Overall, the LEGO Retro Storage Brick and T-Shirt combo pack would be a great item if it was for adults. Considering that the small Pick-A-Brick cups are $8.99, that would make the shirt about $11.99 which is a decent price for a shirt. However, this isn’t for adults and is targeted more towards children. Looking at Target’s website, LEGO kids shirts only go for $8-$9 so this makes the Retro Storage Brick/T-Shirt combo a little overpriced at the $19.99 price point. Before it was listed at $15.99 online but Target has since changed it to match the in-store price. As for if it is worth it to pick up, that’s up to you guys. Just note that this is only a limited edition combo pack that you probably won’t see again after the holidays so there is the exclusivity that goes along with it.
