Winners Aren't Born… They're Built
BRICKMANIACS! We’re thrilled to announce our first MOC contest for 2021! Here’s what you need to know…
Brickmania MOC Contests will be held twice per year. All entires must be new creations and should be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org with the following information…(more…)
We’ve been happy to share with you some awesome restocks and prototypes, and we are always excited to show off the process behind creating the most historically accurate building kits and amazing minifigures on the planet. This process is the same for our older minifigs as much as it is for our newest Minifig of the Month, the Desert Storm US Army Infantry. Our team takes pride in both creating this amazing art and also producing everyday! The fact that most of our minifigs sell out on their launch day is a testament to how much our fans love the work done inside this building, and for that support we couldn’t be more appreciative.
Monday’s haul features the Nighthawk® and MB240 on restock preorder, plus Modern Navy Deck Crew, final MotM restock, and the Perfect Caliber™ BrickArms® Kar98. Also, the final batch ever of the AC-130® (SPOOKY II) – Close Air Support Gunship is set to ship this week. Only a few copies remain. Be sure to check out our website and blog for details on how you can save on shipping and bulk BrickArms orders! Happy building!
The F-117® (A) Nighthawk® is already coming back as a restock preorder, and for good reason! These majestic birds are iconic, innovative and insanely swooshable! Scheduled to return to the webstore on Monday, the Nighthawk is nothing short of a next-level build. The most recent big build from Dan, the F-117 changed modern warfare in Desert Storm, and they continue to be shrouded in secrecy and stories of their unmatched glory. Just like the real life vehicle, this brick built model has pushed the limits of the medium and we know that it will be a joy for our fans to build and display in their collections. Make sure to get yourself one of these on Monday because we don’t know when we can source the parts or find production time for another batch!
It’s Friday once again and we have another excellent lineup live on brickmania.com! This week features the Aichi D3A1 “Val”- Carrier Based Dive Bomber, Type 89 I-Go Otsu Medium Tank, and Desert Storm Royal Marines! Plus, we’ve revamped our site to re-offer a 10% discount when you buy 10 or more of the same bulk BrickArms! Head for brickmania.com to bolster your ranks and for first crack at these epic new releases!
Many of you already follow our social media feeds so will have seen this already, but here is a shot of tomorrow’s highly anticipated Preorder, the Aichi D3A1 “Val” Dive Bomber. This particular prototype is sitting in the design room, before the first test build and well beyond the pile of brick part of the process. As we head into the preorder, these sets are already on their way toward that final step and into the hands of our fantastic production team. It’s been a while since we have returned to World War II era kits, and we are very excited to share what we’ve been working on with the fans.
Once again we bring you and our fans to the Designer’s Room to show you another pile of bricks that will one day soon be a prototype to be test built. As our design team continues to set new standards for historically accurate building kits and provide ever more excellent vehicles for our custom minifigures to be operating, it all begins in what can best be described as organized chaos. To those who are not familiar, this may look like a crash site, but really its the ground floor of our production facility. This is the first step of every single Brickmania model that is on your shelf, of every kit in your hand.
Monday restocks and restock preorders have arrived! This week features a mix of 1941 restock preorders as well as some very popular minifigs and a highly versatile Perfect Caliber BrickArms. It’s all live now at brickmania.com!
Here’s a look at the entire rundown…(more…)
In the past year we’ve been showing the fans behind-the-scenes looks at how our fantastic building kits get produced, and today we have another amazing look at how our next-level action shots get made. Our team takes pride in showing off both our products and our partner’s in startlingly cool ways. The star of this particular action shot, the Desert Storm US Marines, have sold out already, but the action shot that announced their launch will continue to live on (and surely get used again when they are restocked!). We know that our community enjoys these amazing visuals, and we also know that our community is also passionate about taking their own action shots of their favorite minifigs and building kits, too.
You can follow Drew on Instagram and get firsthand teasers and see behind-the-scenes looks like this one. He is just one of the exceptionally talented people that work in this building and help bring you the world’s best building experience. We get a lot of comments from fans about how much they enjoy the attention to detail and the artistic prowess that is on display in these action shots, and they perfectly show off the fantastic work that the design team did to make these figures truly epic.
What’s your favorite action shot? What part of the process would you like to see the behind-the-scenes of most? Let us know!
Friday preorders and new releases have arrived! This week features debut preorders from our WWII 1941 March theme: the Carro Armato M13/40 – Medium Tank and Afrikakorps Kfz.2 Radio Truck.

It’s all live now at brickmania.com – check out our Friday SitRep for a closer look at everything dropping today as well as a sneak peek of what Monday will bring!
