Lego compatible Brick parts from Block Tech
Hey guys, just wanted to share some finds with you today. Whenever I go to Walmart, I always stop in at the Toy aisle. I used to visit the die-cast car aisle to see the latest Hot Wheels, Greenlight and Johnny Lightning die-cast. I would blog about them on my other blogs http://hwpics.blogspot.com and http://mytoycars.blogspot.com.
These days, I tend to frequent the Lego aisle because my die-cast car collecting has waned. So as I'm wandering down the aisle, I see these new Lego compatible building blocks called Block Tech.
There's quite a large assortment as you can see from my picture above. Each box contains 250 brick pieces and they come in several colours. They have a box that contains all black pieces and another box that contains all white pieces.
Other boxes contain brick pieces that come in three shades of colour. For example, the gray box has light gray brick pieces, dark gray pieces, and pieces that are the older Lego gray colour. Other boxes that have coloured pieces also come in three different hues.
Here's a close-up look at one of the Block Tech building block sets.
Hete's some more colours in brown and blue shades.
There are even specialized parts sets such as vehicle wheels, trees, shrubs and flowers and even windows and door sets. All of the sets listed cost $9.97 CDN before tax. That's around $6 or $7 USD per box of 250 pieces. That's cheaper than trying to buy compatible Lego brick parts from Aliexpress.
Block Tech also makes some baseplates but these are 20x20 studs, not the more commonly used 16x32 or 32x32. There are two plates per package and they sell for $2.97 CDN, or about $2 USD.
I bought a gray colour assortment of bricks and a box of all white bricks. Here's the front of the gray box.
Here's the back of the box of gray Lego compatible pieces.
Here's how the building bricks are packaged. They have different size pieces, and shapes, such as bricks, blocks and plates. I used the gray Block Tech bricks for the recent mods I made to the Lepin Market Street building. Go on over to my other blog Its-Not-Lego to check it out. I used them for the the foundation, and floor supports and the clutch of the bricks is excellent. I haven't opened up my box of white brick pieces yet, but plan on using them for other Mocs or Mods soon.
I'm not sure if these can be found in the USA or other countries. Let me know if you've seen or used these bricks and if you liked them or not.
