If you recall from last month’s LEGO Black Friday promos, LEGO offered an enticing exclusive freebie for all of its VIP members. The LEGO VIP exclusive Buildable Red Brick (5006085) relatively had a very short window of availability that only ran for two days. It was a sort of a pre-Black Friday promo that ran during the weekends from November 23 to 24.
Needless to say, it’s a great display set to have for any LEGO aficionado, and I understand the frustration of some if they missed out on this promotional. But thankfully, LEGO’s Customer Service has uploaded the building instructions for this freebie so you can build this on your own using any LEGO pieces that you may already have. If you want to give it a try, you can download a PDF copy of this set’s building instructions right here.
Coming in at 65 pieces, the Buildable Red Brick (5006085) is a pretty straightforward build. There are no exclusive parts in this set which consisted mainly of red and black plates, tiles and bricks. Here’s a rundown of its parts list, and try to see if you have them in your collection.
I like the simplicity of this build and I hope that LEGO will release more of these desktop accessories in the future. I love the idea of seeing this buildable brick beside another exclusive which is the LEGO Brick 60th Anniversary Red Pencil Pot (6258618) that I reported way back from October last year. If you’re into buildable LEGO desk accessories, you may also be interested to check out the LEGO Pencil Pot (40188) which is currently at 20% off at LEGO Shop@Home.
Happy building brick fans!
