Build a cute snowman with a cool top hat and help decorate the Christmas tree. Place the gifts and toys below and climb the fire truck ladder to position the shimmering star on the top. Then head over to the fire station and take the stairs to the cozy kitchen. Switch on the light and enjoy a refreshing beverage in the company of the friendly Dalmatian, before you slide down the fire pole and head back to the square for more festive fun. Fire up your imagination with this delightful LEGO Creator Expert set.

LEGO Ideas

LEGO has released a blog post of some of the changes that have been made to LEGO Ideas. They have also extended the lifeline of LEGO Rebrick just a little bit as it will now go offline on September 14 instead of the previous announcement of it shutting down on the first of September. Check out all the changes that have been made to LEGO Ideas below.

Today we’ve released the latest batch of improvements to LEGO IDEAS based on our roadmap and extensive user testing that we conducted after the last update. With mixed emotions, the time has now come to close LEGO Rebrick and move future Contests to LEGO IDEAS. LEGO Rebrick launched as a contest platform in March 2016 and we have been continuously impressed with the innovation and ingenuity we see in every single entry. We are excited to be able to now offer these contests on LEGO IDEAS and continue to celebrate your creativity and inspire the builders of tomorrow. LEGO Rebrick will go offline September 14.

We’d like to celebrate LEGO Rebrick and everyone who entered contests there. So we’ve just awarded a new Rebricker badge to every registered LEGO IDEAS member who entered a LEGO Rebrick contest. Thanks again for sharing your creativity with us on LEGO Rebrick and we’re looking forward to your entries here on IDEAS.

Today’s website updates include:

A new Staff Pick feed that shows both Product Ideas and Contest Entries
Lightboxes are back! This isn’t new, but it’s useful and we missed them after they were removed in the last release.When you click an image in an idea or entry, it will open a lightbox and you can view it full screen within your browser window.
Improved look for Contest pages including a full-width header and less visual clutter. Check it out on the Voltron Scene contest.
New Notifications menu you can find by clicking the bell on the top menu. Customize your alerts in Settings.
Color-coded flags for news feed items. Product Idea flags are yellow, Contest Entries are blue. We’ve also added a tool tip for context when you hover over them.
You can now disallow followers in Settings.
One Contest entry at a time. You can enter contests as many times as you want, but you can only have one awaiting a moderator approval at a time. Quality over quantity!
More Visible “Submit Product Idea” link, so you can more easily find it on a mobile device.
Improvments to Ending Soon timer for product ideas on the Discover page. If there’s less than a day left, it now shows hours and minutes.
Minor Terms of Service update changing language to better support Contests.

LEGO Rebrick will go offline September 14

LEGO Rebrick wrapped up its last contest a few weeks ago and remains online until September 14. If you entered any LEGO Rebrick contests, you’ll want to save your data before the site goes offline. Going forward, we’re happy to offer our crowdsourcing and co-creation experiences under one brand and platform—LEGO IDEAS.

What’s next?

We’re continuing to release improvements throughout the fall, starting with improvements to how Filtering works on the Discover page in mid-September. After each release, we review your feedback and also conduct professional user testing. We combine what we learn from this input and our own roadmap to prioritize what features make it into each release. While we don’t always get what we want, when we want it (even us admins!), we’re always working to make LEGO IDEAS a better experience for you.

BrickLink AFOL Designer Program

BrickLink has announced that they have teamed up with LEGO to launch something new called the AFOL Designer Program. According to the post, BrickLink will be hosting the program for a short time so I assume LEGO will be hosting it themselves in the future. There’s no word on what it is about but stay tuned on September 12 when they announce the details of the program. What do you guy think the AFOL Designer Program is about?

Today is such an exciting day at the BrickLink office because we finally get to reveal a very special collaboration with none other than the LEGO Group. We’ve been bursting at the seams because of how long we’ve had to keep this program a secret! Now that we’ve all had a minute to scream and catch our breaths, let’s get into the details. 

What is the AFOL Designer Program?

This program celebrates creativity by realizing unique AFOL designs with truly original themes. What better timing than to kick it off in the year of the 60th anniversary of the LEGO brick? For a limited time, BrickLink will be hosting the AFOL Designer Program. We are honored to help highlight your creativity and help make your designs a reality.
