Our friends over at BrickPicker has announced a LEGO set review contest over on their site with a chance to win some great prizes. All you have to do is write some quality reviews of LEGO sets. The contests starts today and ends on July 3rd, 2013 at 11:59pm (Eastern Time). There are some guidelines that are required for you to be entered in the contest. The reviews have to be a total of 1000 characters combined in the following categories:

Have you been trying to sell your LEGO sets online but feeling the pain of the high fees involved in selling them? These expensive fees from different online marketplaces such as eBay and Amazon take away from the profits that should really be in your pockets. BrickPicker might have the solution for you. Today, the guys over there introduced Brick Classifieds, a system that could help revolutionize how people buy and sell LEGO online.
First of all, you are able to advertise your listings for on the site itself. This allows other members to easily find what they are looking for without having to go to another website. The main reason and might be the biggest reason to use Brick Classifieds is that there are no expensive fees involved. This low cost fee (usually a dollar or less) allows you to sell your sets for a fraction of what the other marketplaces, such as eBay or Amazon, charge. But wait there’s more! With this system, there are no expensive commissions after you make the sale. In addition, there are also some other benefits with the system including shipping calculators and a feedback system to rate your transactions.
Although the Brick Classifieds system isn’t a direct competition to eBay or Amazon, it is another avenue that users can take to sell their LEGO products online. Check out the video below that Ed and Jeff have created to learn more about Brick Classifieds or read more about it on their forum.
Everything that is collectible has value. If you’ve ever bought LEGO sets before or looking into purchasing your first LEGO set, there is the retail price for the set and there is also the current value of the sets in the secondary market. How do you find the prices of the sets? You can either check Bricklink, Amazon, or eBay to find what other people are selling the sets for, which is pretty time consuming.
This is where BrickPicker comes in. This FREE service allows you to see what your “BrickFolio” is worth according to eBay using Terapeak. Brickpicker tracks the value of your collection by comparing the purchase price to the current price whether the sets or in new or used condition. You can also see the pricing trends of the sets and determine if they are a good buy or you should hold off in purchasing them. There is also a chance to win some BrickMaster Star Wars sets by doing things on the site earning BrickPoints.
If you want to see how much your LEGO sets are worth, head over to BrickPicker and set up your BrickFolio today.
