This is wonderful news, ok, initially I was deeply concerned like most eurobrickers, however after reading an interview on another site with a spokemuppet from TLG all fears & concerns have been dismissed. Turns out TLG are no longer corporate bullies and only have the interests of the AFOL community at heart, that’s why they’re helping us all buy purchasing a small and insignificant website with a mission of helping AFOLs find the best deals for parts and to foster growth for small traders. Reading between the lines from the TLG spin doctor I have figured out their evil master-plan.
leveraging tlgs shipping volumes all BL orders over $150 will receive free shipping.
BL stores will be able to purchase discounted sets in plain packaging without instruction books with parts packaged by type for ease of sortation.
buyers will be able to order current production parts in any tlg colour they wish, a small delay may occur.
Orders placed with your favourite bl seller will be fulfilled and shipped from tlg with a commission to the seller.
Prices will go down across the board, sellers with outrageous pricing or sneaky fees will be delisted after three complaints.
AFOL designs on studio shall retain the ip of the designer.
New sets will be released digitally to the afol community prior to manufacturing so errors and improvements can be incorporated into production.
