Bricks by the Bay LEGO Convention Indefinitely Cancelled

Since I returned to the hobby over a decade ago, Bricks by the Bay has been hosting their annual LEGO conventions and have been doing so until last year where it was cancelled due to reasons unknown and was looking forward to holding one this year. They have recently announced that Bricks by the Bay has been cancelled again for 2024 and will be on indefinite hiatus. Again there was so more information besides that but will update when they decide to return in the future.

Dear Bricks by the Bay Builders, Vendors and Visitors,

There will not be a Bricks by the Bay in 2024, and the convention is on indefinite hiatus. If and when the convention resumes, we will send out an update at that time.

Thank you kindly for all the wonderful times! We hope to see you in the future!

LEGO Licensed Merchandise Product Offering Survey

LEGO is doing a new licensed merchandise survey and you can have a say on what you would like to see in future products. The survey is US/UK centered but you can fill it out if you’re in other countries as well but keep in mind it’ll ask about the items in the US dollar and British pound.

It asks how you feel from a variety of mockup product offerings from hoodies, t-shirts, up-scaled LEGO items, travel mugs, backpacks, and more that you can check out and see if you would like to buy something like that and where you would buy it at. The items you see are not the final product but could be something you would see in the near future.

We are excited to invite you to participate in a 15-minute survey about our licensed merchandise product offerings. At the LEGO® Group, we are constantly striving to innovate and expand our portfolio, and your feedback will play a crucial role in guiding our decisions.

This survey aims to understand your current shopping habits and preferences, alongside your insights on licensed merchandise concept ideas (non-brick products; clothing, books, storage solutions). Your responses will inform our team’s efforts to identify new business growth areas and enhance the LEGO® licensed merchandise portfolio.

We welcome any additional feedback or suggestions you may have regarding LEGO licensed merchandised products. All responses provided in this survey will be anonymous and used for research purposes only.


Thank you for your time in sharing your thoughts and opinions!
