LEGO Message Boards Shutting Down in March

After over a decade of being online, the official LEGO Message Boards will be shutting down on March 6. This move makes way for more of LEGO’s resources to go to LEGO Life which they’ve started to push more for. The message boards are still active but check out the announcement post for deadlines to do things on there.

To be honest, I’ve been on there once or twice but I didn’t really get into it that much and somehow I don’t think it appealed to adults as it did with younger kids. Were you a part of the LEGO Message Boards and are you surprised that it’ll be closing down in a few months?

After much consideration, a very difficult decision has been reached that the Mods need to share with you all. The LEGO.com Message Boards will be retired on March 6, 2017. The entire community, including all forums and all content within them, will be taken offline permanently.

Just like a LEGO set, theme, game, or site nothing can last forever. In order to make way for the exciting features of the future we must occasionally retire older features. That is the current case with the message boards.

The Mods would like to thank you all for being such amazing community members. Every forum is filled with creative, inspiring, and exciting writings thanks to you! We truly appreciate the passion each of you has contributed to this community and hope that LEGO passion will carry through this transitional time.

    Wow… the LEGO Message Boards was one of the many reasons for why I am in the online LEGO community nowadays. I only was on the message boards for summer 2012 but believe me, I met many great people on those boards. I will miss it because I planned on one day returning to it, but it’s for the best. Everytime I tried to post something, it had to go through moderators and took usually over 10 hours to get my post posted. Overall, it didn’t work but now that I’m older and more in the community I’ve found other forums like BrickTubers. I’ll miss it…but not really TBH.

    I was a part of the LMB community, and am very sad to hear this news. I have many memories from there, like a couple of Grandpas, a goat named Goatida, and Sith Lords who had a really scary but cool basement.

    Having a message board where everything has to go through moderators for hours doesn’t work, and I’m surprised it lasted as long as it did.
