The Brick Loot August 2016 LEGO and Brick box theme is “Have Bricks Will Travel.” Our creator was excited to find seven items in his box, plus a sticker of the theme, because he has a collection of buildings made from various brand of bricks.

The first item is the Chicago Water Tower, an Exclusive Build designed by Rocco Buttliere. All of his skyscraper and landmark models are built to a common 1:650 scale.

The next item is a Red Telephone Box-Piggy Bank. The red phone box is a British cultural icon. This item is made with miniature bricks, and with a hole at the top and a door which opens, it can be used as a bank for a little loose change.
