    Bricklink Designer Program 2021 Discussion Thread

    Are they not offering double or triple the amount of sets that are being produced compared to the last go round? I don't feel that rush to purchase this round than in previous rounds but I may jump in early because the castle stands out for me.

    LEGO #21344 - Orient Express

    There is a new photo of the train floating around leak sites....looks better to me.

    LEGO #21344 - Orient Express

    Looks like Lego reverted back to the March calendar to avoid showing the OE.

    100% agree. The last three rounds of rejected Ideas sets are much better than anything being voted on IMHO.

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    I caved and bought tonight online. I really wanted the Blacktron GWP and will probably snag the Pizza Van if it is not tied a modular specific purchase.

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    I remember the heavy criticism that Brick Bank faced when it was released and now it is a highly sought after set in the aftermarket. Even the beloved Parisian Restaurant faced criticism with the stairs that went nowhere when the first images leaked. Every modular faces criticism and my response is simple,: if you don't like it, don't buy it. If you want to adjust the model to suit your needs, so be it. Regardless, I will be buying this set likely on day one....January 1st is a big day in my house! I feel the same as you, the builds include a wide array of pieces and the interiors are far more detailed than the original first few which were bare bones on the inside. The design of the jazz club seems to be linked closely to the original few modulars and that is fine by me.
  8. I guess the bottom line is whether Lego makes a significant profit from the program. I do wonder if the higher prices indicates a wider profit margin. The larger sets in the third round which many believed would not reach the production threshold or sell out, seemed to have gone quite quickly. Clearly the demand was there.

    I received the same e-mail (also in North America) for the two sets I supported in round two. I am hoping Lego ironed out some of the kinks and the sets are shipped on time but am expecting delays with pandemic related issues and the like. The world seems to be a much different place than it was a few years ago and I will remain patient!

    Although the prices are high in round three, I am looking forward to supporting Studgate Station and the Modular Construction site.

    Favourite sets that you own

    This was a lot more difficult than I expected it to be! 1.) 6399 - Airport Shuttle - This set came out as I was just entering my dark ages. It is a simple design but great fun to build and I love watching my kids enjoy this set now. 2.) 10219 - Maersk Train - Being a lover of all things trains, this set is an outstanding design and makes me wish that Lego would offer more of the same in terms of trains. 3.) 21322 - Ideas Pirates of Barracuda Bay - This one is all about childhood nostalgia (Pirates!) 4.) 10228 - Monster Fighters Haunted House - A great set, the colours, little details, the entire set is just fantastic. 5.) 70620 - Ninjago City - A large and very well designed and colourful set, like nothing else in my collection. 6.) 21310 - Ideas Old Fishing Store - Another set filled with intricate details and a wonderful design. 7.) 21301- Ideas Birds - A very unique set that I find myself displaying on my desk. A great little, well designed set. 8.) 75827 - Ghostbusters Firehouse Headquarters - Childhood nostalgia x 2 (Fav. movie when I was a kid) 9.) 10193 - Medieval Market Village - Childhood nostalgia x 3 (Castle!) 10.) 40487 - Sailboat Adventure Honourable mentions: #4554 Metro Station, #10001 Metroliner, #10185 Green Grocer, #10210 Imperial Flagship, #10244 Fairground Mixer.
