LEGO Gives Update on BrickLink Designer Program

LEGO just finished a roundtable regarding the BrickLink Designer Program regarding some of the concerns from the initial launch last week. There was massive traffic to BrickLink compared to Black Friday shopping. In fact, somehow there were actually 10,000 Castle in the Forest sets sold when there was originally a limit of 5,000 total pre-orders per project. As a result, LEGO/BrickLink will allow the other projects to also reach 10,000 pre-orders as well. The first round of crowdfunding will reopen again on August 3 to allow that to happen. The Castle will not reopen for pre-orders since it already reach 10k pre-orders already. This will in turn push the dates of the next crowdfunding rounds back even further.

There will now be a limit of one pre-order per person to allow more fans to get their hands on the sets. If you saw, resellers were selling the Castle in the Forest for about $800 after it was the first set to sell out. LEGO has also taken action against resellers on eBay to not allow scalpers to profit from it.

As far as designs and pricing for the next projects not mentioned in the press release below, LEGO may reveal them a bit early give buyers details of them before crowdfunding starts.

BrickLink Designer Program First Crowdfunding Round Goals Reached

The first crowdfunding round for the BrickLink Designer Program launched this morning and after about eight hours, we now know which sets will be produced. After some overload issues on the site this morning, fans were slowly able to pre-order the projects that they wanted to see produced and the first five to reach that goal are Castle in the Forest, Great Fishing Boat, Sheriff’s Safe, Pursuit of Flight, and Kakapo. BIONICLE Legends and Particle Accelerator are the two projects that are now eliminated and will not be made.

Castle in the Forest was the fastest one to sell out 5,000 copies and it hit that goal in about 40 minutes after pre-orders started. Following that was Great Fishing Boat and the others slowly followed. As of this post, Pursuit of Flight and Kakapo are the ones that hasn’t reached full pre-order capacity.

At first glance, I thought that BIONICLE Legends would’ve been one of the top five since they have a large but niche community but judging by the progress bar, it doesn’t look like it even it 1,500 pre-orders.

Note that the Mountain View Observatory has been pushed to a future crowdfunding round.

Were you able to place your orders and which one(s) did you get? Were you satisfied with how the pre-orders went? I thought it was smooth after the initial rush and checkout on the LEGO Shop was also nice. One complaint that I saw was that there was a max limit of five of a particular project that people could buy. … Continue

BrickLink Designer Program First Crowdfunding Pre-Orders Live

The day is finally here where the first BrickLink Designer Program crowdfunding round has officially started and you can now place pre-orders on the projects. What this is program is about is these projects were previously rejected on LEGO Ideas but now have a second chance for fans who wanted them. There were originally eight projects for this round but the Mountain View Observatory has been pushed back to a future crowdfunding round.

The first five projects to reach 3,000 pre-orders will be produced and there will be a limit of 5,000 of each. If a project fails to get 3,000 pre-orders, all the pre-orders will be cancelled and you won’t get charged for it. One question that was asked about pre-ordering was the shipping charge. You’ll be glad to know that shipping will be FREE to all countries BrickLink ships to.

There will be two more rounds of crowdfunding for this fall which will have up to 15 out of the 26 projects that are part of the program.
