BrickLink Designer Program snubs Pirates - so tell Bricklink what you think in their survey...

Recommended Posts

Somehow Pirates have been completely overlooked in the BrickLink Designer Program 2021 Invitational.

Meanwhile, Castle, Town and Space all seem to be there in some form.

BrickLink are also conducting a survey so there is an opportunity to provide feedback:

There is a complete lack of Pirate themed ideas on the BrickLink Designer Program 2021 Invitational webpage:
https://www.bricklink.com/v3/designer-program/introducing.page

Meanwhile, other classic themes including Castle, Town and Space are represented, despite Pirates making it into the top 4 in the recent Vote for the 90th Anniversary LEGO set poll.

So my need is better Pirate themed representation in initiatives like these.

All of this speculation about pirates and the lack thereof in IDEAS/BL-IDEAS... Well, either it points to the good end, where these things are snubbed because Lego has something substantial in the works, or the bad end, where nothing of the sort is under consideration at all... (Perhaps because Lego thinks that Barracuda Bay/Creator pirate ship are saturation for this kind of product?)

Which is to say, I have no idea which is correct, but the middle ground seems unlikely.

Until there is an official announcement from the LEGO Group, we do not have the luxury of assuming anything.

But we can complete the BrickLink survey and let them know the absence of Pirates has not gone unnoticed.

I also wrote a message.

But if Space, Castle and Bionicle sets get successfully crowdfunded, LEGO will probably make a Pirates set for its 90th anniversary.

There is no "probably".  The LEGO Group said they are only selecting one theme for the 90th Anniversary set.

That aside, the this topic is focused on the lack of Pirate submissions for the BrickLink Designer Program 2021 Invitational.

If there aren't any Pirate submissions selected for this program, no Pirate submissions can go into production.

No. You don't know the response...

Nobody knows the response until there is one.
