LEGO has announced the first round of crowdfunding for the BrickLink Designer Program. These projects were previously rejected on LEGO Ideas but have been resurrected so fans who wanted them can now pre-order them. The first five projects to reach 3,000 pre-orders will be produced and you can start pre-ordering on July 1. There will be a limit of 5,000 of each produced from the top five so get your orders in if you see something you like. 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. 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.

Designer Program sets will feature digital building instructions provided by the LEGO Building Instructions mobile app. Digital instructions help us fulfil our Planet Promise by using less paper and saving on shipping weight, which in turn reduces emissions while delivering your set to you. The app lets you zoom, rotate and view your model in 3D and ghost view mode to see how far you’ve come and what part you’re in the process of building. The LEGO Building Instructions app is great at keeping track of complex builds and makes it easy to save your building steps online so you can recycle instruction books.
