About The Brick Escape

Hello there, and welcome to The Brick Escape!

I’m so glad you’ve chosen to visit my little corner of the internet – thanks so much for stopping by!

My name is Benji, and I’m the owner of The Brick Escape. I’m a HUGE LEGO Star Wars nerd, and absolutely love writing and reading about all the latest sets and leaks. This site is my creative outlet where I get to escape for a few hours a day to talk about all things LEGO, with a focus on Star Wars sets.

I remember being a kid and seeing Star Wars: A New Hope for the first time, and my love of all things Star Wars has only grown since then. My first LEGO Star Wars set was of course Luke’s X-Wing, and since then, I’ve never stopped collecting.

I started The Brick Escape in 2022, at first mainly as a way to catalog upcoming Star Wars sets and rumors, as I couldn’t really find a place online that accurately compiled all the leaks and dates of upcoming sets.

At the time my 5 year old son had just started collecting Star Wars Microfighters, and was OBSESSED with finding out as much as he could about all the minifigures and ships. His growing interest (and constant questions, lol) encouraged me to keep collecting, building, and eventually starting this site!

I’m thrilled to share this journey with you, and I hope to be your trusted source for all LEGO Star Wars news, upcoming leaks, and unbiased reviews!

I hope you enjoy reading, and more importantly, rediscovering your inner child through our shared love of LEGO.

– Benji
