It appears that the new BrickLink MOC Shop is now live. If you haven’t heard about it, basically the MOC Shop is a place where people can show off their builds and other people can purchase them if they desire. BrickLink CEO Jay Kim has released a statement about the latest service as BrickLink’s modernization project aka BrickLink 2.0:
With MOC Shop, BrickLink is on a mission to bring the creativity of building back to the world by means of everyday commerce. We’re providing a platform where our sellers and buyers can meet a whole new category of “designers.” We not only sell loose parts and official LEGO sets but also custom designed sets built by the most innovative brick artists around the globe. Our platform seamlessly connects designs to active BrickLink stores that will source the parts based on preference or popular demand. We’ve built a system where anyone can share, review, and purchase parts and manuals all in a collective experience. We’ve introduced the one-click solution for you to buy packaged MOCs as gifts or even just for yourself.
Also as part of the BrickLink MOC Shop going live, the Seed Part Challenge #1 has begun as well. The part that is required for the contest is Medium Azure Vehicle or Mudguard 4 x 2.5 x 2 with Arch Round. You can read more about the rules of the Seed Part Challenge here. The submission phase ends in two weeks on September 5th.
Check out all stuff that going on at the new BrickLink MOC Shop. There still may be some bugs here and there as the programmers are still trying to making everything run as smoothly as possible so if you encounter any problems, let them know in the forums.
