The Last Door Before Yours

Brickmaniacs,

Our fantastic Customer Service team is here for the fans, working tirelessly to make sure that you get all of your newest releases and restocks safely on your doorstep. This week they are working extra hard to get all of your Vietnam MOC Contest needs out the door so that you can get the chance to share your creation with the whole community! They have (for now) the brand new Perfect Caliber™ BrickArms® M1903 USMC Sniper and the Perfect Caliber™ BrickArms® M60 for that exact purpose of helping your MOCs to the next level! Get them before they have sold out, because those will not last long!

As you can see, the door above is the door that our shipping carriers use to get the packages from the hands of our esteemed Customer Service team, and its the last door in the warehouse that your kits, minifigs and accessories go through before they land on your doorstep. Don’t miss the chance to enter your diaorma or MOC to the first 2021 MOC Contest! We are extremely excited to see what the community creates and the amazing ways that you utilize our new Perfect Calibers and Vietnam themed kits! Happy building one and all!

Brickmaniacs,

Everyone here at Brickmania loves seeing the amazing builds that our fans send us, and we can’t wait to see what our creative fans have in mind!

This amazing graphic was created by Drew, of action shot fame, from the Vietnam Display located in the GHQ Store here in Minneapolis. This is definitely one of the most appreciated dioramas in our retail stores, and it makes a perfect baseline for our Vietnam-Themed MOC Contest that is accepting submissions until June 1st, 2021. We know that there are many new kits and fresh techniques that our fans want to exhibit in their MOCs and we can’t wait to see what you build!

Action Shot Studio

Brickmaniacs,

Here is another look behind-the-scenes at the process of creating our awesome Minifigure action shots that you see on product pages and across our social media posts. Although most of the action shots that are created for our building kits are rendered by our animation team, many of the minifigure promotional pictures are taken with a camera with the real minifigures in this little studio located in Designer’s Row.

We know that our community loves to take pictures of their MOCs and their collections, and this is one of the first opportunities for the newest minifigs to be photographed anywhere in the world. We get a lot of positive comments and appreciative words about our action shots, and photographers and MOC builders around the world are always looking for new ways to showcase their builds and collections in even cooler ways. Not only do we encourage our fans to share their pictures, we are also highly excited to see what you build and submit for our official MOC Contests. Seeing our fans enjoy and share their work with the world is one of our favorite parts of the best job ever! Thanks to everyone who sends us pictures of your dioramas, MOCs and collections!

Huey® Returns! Monday Restocks and Restock Preorders!

Happy Monday! We have our regular drop of restocks and restock preorders, including the Huey®, Stryker, Hue Marines, and more! It’s all back now at brickmania.com!

Weighing Station

Brickmaniacs,

This is another picture taken from our Quality Control team. This is where the QC champions weigh out the bags of hand-counted pieces that you find in every building kit we sell. They have made it a science, processing an immense amount of parts every day, so whether you have the new VADS or one of the Scorpion/Scimitars, or a beautiful British Dreadnought, every bag inside of your box was processed at this desk. The sound of that bucket being filled with parts and them then being poured into their respective bags is a common drumbeat in the warehouse.
