    I'm actually stealing this solution from GamesRadar. They have a nifty little map describing where each specific brick location is. This way you can play it smart and get the Studx8/6/2 bricks first to make buying the rest of them a little easier.

    There are a total of 20 Red Bricks that can all be found throughout Gotham City. Red Bricks are the “cheats” in the game and will need to be opened with The Joker, Riddler, or Lex Luthor. They can be found by opening up your map and scanning the area. Each red circle on the map represents a red brick. Some will be hiding up on rooftops while other will be in corners on the ground and will require one of the listed characters above to be opened.

    The first thing you need to know is that most of these bricks require certain characters to collect. The black boxes that have that slight blue-electric look can only be opened by Lex. The boxes with the ?'s on them are Riddler boxes. Finally, Joker's face is on the Joker boxes . Sadly, other than the Riddler, you have to beat the game to gain access to the Flash, who is neccessary to rebuild Lex's and Joker's terminals. Also, unless I am mistaken (and if I am someone tell me in comments and I will correct this), you cannot play in free roam until you beat the game, meaning even if you got Flash and then unlocked Joker and Lex, you still couldn’t switch characters and use them to unlock boxes. Hell, you couldn’t even switch characters to the Flash to unlock Lex and Joker unless you were in free roam.

    Despite this there are some that do not require you to have these characters to get, which means you can get them prior to beating the game, and I highly recommend this. Prior to starting to search, I must also recommend activating as many of the Batman terminals around the city as you can (the columns of light shooting into the sky marks these, blue you have activated and red you have not) This reveals the map when you pause the game, allowing you to hit the Y button and find the red bricks faster (red bricks show up as red dots). The first 4 of these are available to you the MOMENT you get control of Batman OUTSIDE of a mission, meaning the first time you can wander the streets, you can get these. The first brick of note, is at the Power Station, which is Brick # 12 if you want to use the map in ROBomination’s guide as reference. This brick will cost you 100,000 and is the x2 Multiplier brick, which will help you earn studs at a faster rate. The next target is the 50,000 Mini-Kit Finder brick, which is in Gotham Park (# 10 on ROBomination’s map).

    The next bricks will require you to wait until you get Superman in your group. The second this happens you can use his heat vision to break the locks on the bridges heading to the last big island in the south. This is where the last of the bricks that do not require Free Play or the beating of the game to acquire are hidden. First, I would recommend going for the Red Brick Finder brick, which is on the docks on the west side of the city (#15 on ROBomination’s map). This brick costs 50,000, and is very useful in finding just where the remaining bricks are when combined with your map. On your map hit the Y button, set a marker on the red dot, head over to your marker, and follow the red arrow to your target. Easy as pie. The last of the non-Free Roam bricks is located at the Gotham Police Station (#20 on ROBomination’s map). This is your x4 Multiplier brick and will run you 200,000. A little tip, turn on the x2 and x4 multiplier at the same time and the studs you pick up from now until you beat the game will be worth 8 times as much. That will make affording the others much easier when you get to the end of your story.

    Now onto the characters you need to acquire the other bricks. When you get Superman, you can then fly to the top of Wayne tower. This is where you find the terminal for Riddler. Look at the terminal and this will cause Riddler to pop out right behind you. Kick his butt and he’s yours for 125,000. After beating the game, I suggest going straight to the Yacht Club on the northern island and getting Lex Luthor first. Lex is needed for all the good, stud getting red bricks. Just head out on the dock at the Yacht Club, switch to Flash, build the terminal, then beat Lex who appears on top of the Yacht Club building…boat…thing. He costs 250,000. Finally, you’ll need the Joker too, so head over to the Ace Chemicals plant, use Flash to rebuild that terminal, and beat the Joker (he appears on top of one of the buildings, a bit hard to describe, watch the little cut scene when he spawns and use the environment around him to help you hone in). This baddie will run you 250,000 as well.

    This is where I stop holding your hands. You can use your map, hit Y to scan, and seek out all the red dots using the red brick detector, or you can switch over to ROBomination’s map and target the red bricks you want first (like the x10, x8, x6, and Attract Studs bricks). The choice is yours. You have the tools, now grab the bricks.

    Lastly, I want to say thanks to ROMomination. The map you found on GamesRadar is great. I referenced it a lot as it is the most accurate way I can think of to direct people to specific blocks. Nice find man!

    (A quick side note, with the red brick finder turned on, all of the bricks are easy to find, except one. This is the Attract Studs brick. I ran around Bruce Wayne’s yard for about a half hour before I went online to find out where this @%#! brick was. It was under me, inside the Bat Cave. Pause the game, select the “Return to Batcave” option, then use a flying character and go right. Pretty easy to get to if you know where to look.)
