  2. As you probably know, 28 previously rejected Lego ideas sets have been brought back on a crowdfunding basis under the bricklink designer program. Which bricklink designer program sets are you going to definitely back? (It would be good if someone could add a poll here but for now please just reply). Here’s the link to the program: https://www.bricklink.com/v3/designer-program/introducing.page
  3. EDITED to include the actual press release and official links. Thanks to @Jim and @Digger of Bricks for those. Here are BrickLink's and TLG's official statements on the acquisition... BrickLink - BrickLink will join the LEGO Group BrickLink - A Message from the LEGO Group "BILLUND, Denmark, November 26, 2019: The LEGO® Group today announced it has acquired BrickLink Ltd (www.bricklink.com), the world’s largest online community of adult LEGO fans from NXMH to strengthen its connection with its important adult fan base.

  4. I have decided to build the, what is in my opinion, best ship in Star Wars: the classic and sleek imperial shuttle. From making a wanted list and ticking off what I actually have, is there any other advice you guys can pass on to me? It is a bit daunting but I have amassed about 25% of the total parts and just thinking of that beauty pushes me on. Thanks.
  5. I was curious how often I was buying on BrickLink. Turns out, it's almost once every two weeks since 2006 . Of course, orders can be of different sizes, but even so, seems like a lot. To calculate it, I used the number of feedbacks as a proxy for purchases which, I realise, is an underestimation because some sellers don't provide feedback. BrickLink provides your joining date, i.e. Member Since {date}. In my case, it's a day in 2006. Using a date duration calculator such as this one, I worked out the number of days since becoming a member. It's then a simple matter of dividing the number of days by the feedbacks to approximate days per order. Mine is just over 14 or two weeks. Scary! What's yours? You can add BrickOwl, Lego Ebay etc purchase rates but I'm not sure where you get the duration and number of orders figures from on those platforms.
  6. Hi everyone, I've just created a tutorial video regarding on how to use the Studio 2.0 LEGO building software. In this short tutorial, i would go through most of the common and very useful faetures/functions of Bricklink Studio 2.0. Wish you may able to create some wonderful MOC (creation) with this fantastic software. Hope you do find this video is useful. How to use Bricklink Studio 2.0 Tutorial (2020)
  7. I'm interested in rare/uncommon minifigures and I came across this guy on Bricklink: https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?M=ovr023&name=Overalls Gray on Orange with Pocket, Gray Legs, White Cap - Glued&category=[Town][Classic Town]#T=S&O={"iconly":0} Only produced for a factory display in Germany, only got out because they fell out from under the acrylic glass on occasion. There aren't any available but I can only imagine how much they're worth. I'm looking to broaden my knowledge: what are some similarly rare/expensive figures/figure parts? Not talking about examples like the 2013 Captain Rex, 2016 Thrawn etc that have shot up in value now but were not difficult to acquire when available (although figures from sets aren't completely excluded if older, limited distribution etc)
  8. I recently installed LDD and Stud.io on my new laptop and ran into issues with both - only 4.3 would install from the lego site so I tried downloading from another source, but 4.3 (I believe this was up to date around 2012) is the only version I could download. On Stud.io, I had issues with connection - plates often do not align without making sure they slide completely down the studs without clashing which is annoying, and minifig arms do not connect to torsos without being aligned perfectly with the hinge tool. I believe this has only been an issue since the most recent update. Any help with either issue would be appreciated!
  9. Hello, I want to build a lot of MOC's, but do not want to take existing ones apart. Sometimes I use a part in a certain MOC where I could have used another one. When building another MOC, I might realise that I needed that certain part. What do you do in that situation? Do you take apart the first MOC to replace the part, taking the risk that you do not know how to put it back together? Do you buy the part (PAB, BrickLink,...) and leave your first MOC be?
  10. With the 10-Year Anniversary of the death of Daniel Jezek (1977-2010) in September 2020, I've taken advantage of the new Mosaic Tool on Stud.io and made a huge portrait of Bricklink's founder! This year, he would've turned 43 years old.

    Northern Pacific Z-6 Challenger

    A 4-6-6-4 type steam locomotive. First conceived by the Northern Pacific in the 1930s, they were among the steam locomotives that represented "super-power" where engine builders learned to create locomotives that combined both power and speed. The first batch of 12 of these engines were first delivered in 1936 to replace double-heading methods. The locomotives please Northern Pacific so much in fact that 9 more were ordered in 1937. They could be found all over the NP's divisions hauling fast freight trains and reefer trains. Their 69 inch drivers allowed them not only strong pulling power but also the ability to go 60 miles per hour. I thought it could bring a real "challenge" to those who want to build it. It has OVER 2000 parts total. It has a side rod system that needed to be reversed engineered a few times to perfect it to where no 3rd party elements are required. Unlike most other articulated steam engines I have seen on YouTube and other places, mine has a FIXED rear engine unit and a front free swinging engine unit just like Union Pacific 4014 that was restored in 2019 if I am correct. Description: Locomotive is powered by 4 LARGE motors, these sit inside the boiler and provide the means of going forwards and backwards. Both the IR receiver and battery box sit inside the tender. I would recommend some extension cables given the fact that the locomotive itself is very long. The IR receiver also plays a part in the tender for the locomotive is designed to look like an oil burner. The bogies on the tender are specially designed to not only to look realistic but also to take turns at the same time. And the same can be said on the lead truck in front of the first engine unit. The cab will actually let you house an engineer and fireman to simulated them driving the locomotive. To look at my other creations go to BrickLink and search under Strader987 https://www.bricklink.com/v3/studio/design.page?idModel=160723 This locomotive is also on The Lego Ideas website, here is where to find it: https://ideas.lego.com/projects/7a2adb34-7fc5-401a-aa28-c8eddd37480c Please help me get 10,000 supporters please.

    Pig Palace Car

    At long last I present to you all a train car to go behind my Z-6 challenger: The Pig Palace Car This type of car was used exclusively to haul animals like pigs. They were unusual because unlike most other freight cars, this one was a double decker freight car. Its small space allowed animals like pigs to ride on it with ease. It has a straw bed inside as well as troughs to keep them fed for longer journeys. This particular Pig Palace Car will hold up to 18 pigs. This will soon be on Lego Ideas soon. I will post the link when it comes up. It already is on Bricklink for a 3D view.
  13. I ordered some pieces on BrickLink and this one piece looks different than the other pieces that were obviously real Lego. This piece has "BL" logos on the studs instead of "LEGO" and there is no text on the bottom. The piece also feels different when connected to genuine Lego pieces. As this piece was ordered on BrickLink, the "BL" makes me a bit confused, though I believe Bricklink wouldn't intentionally make a fake Lego piece. Any thoughts?
  14. Hi everyone, Would anyone be willing/able to help convert some Bricklink Studio files into PDF instructions for me? I have been trying for what seems like forever and they just keep crashing my MacBook pro. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated. Thank you, Josh
  15. Hello Eurobricks, some unestimated trouble occured in some of my latest Bricklink orders. I want to share it here as it seems the problem gets more frequently. Most parts, especially those with studs are easy to distinguish, but it gets tricky when it comes to technic liftarms and connectors or even axles. Maybe someone can help me with axles in different lenghts as i haven´t found a method to check them. The newer 3l has the Lego CR on the front, but older ones?? Best regards Gerhard
  16. Greetings, I have made LEGO 10020 on LDD with a yellow warbonnet and a B unit. I also have one in the blue warbonnet scheme and two other designs that use Earth blue . The point is that I'm afraid that Earth blue ,which is the most important color, will be hard and almost impossible to find in some cases. For example: 10020 Uses grilles and has some of those little doors (Part#: 3188/3189) and only one is sold from New Zealand in Earth blue. So my question is: Where do you guys get rare colors in large quantities from? (Example: Earth green, Earth blue, Medium azur, Aqua) ATSF F7 Yellow
  17. Hi I am quite new to the lego world, and trying to create my own lego design. However, I am facing difficulty in finding certain bricks in bulks for my creation. Do you guys have any recommendations other than bricklink? Thank you!
  18. Hello everyone! The first couple of AFOL Designer Sets from BrickLink have arrived to the people who pre-ordered them, so I thought it's time to make a review of my design, The LEGO® Story (which now has a set number too, BL19008). The postman gave me a classic brown box, with the BrickLink logo on it. After I opened it, I was finally able to see the beautiful, high quality box design. It has a white sleeve, with a couple of images of the four vignettes, the BrickLink logo, the 60 years anniversary logo from LEGO and a nice sticker, with "Exclusive LEGO element included" label. When you remove this white part of the box, you can see a nice backdrop photo for the model (on the inner side of the white sleeve), and of course the matte black box, with the BrickLink logo, and a nice brick pattern. The box is closed with a special shiny sticker, which includes the set number and name, and the (user)name of the AFOL who designed it. Let's open this black box! You can see here a thank you message from BrickLink and The LEGO Group, the exclusive element, the numbered bags, and the building instruction: Here is the exclusive element! - 39789pb01 The set contains 9 bigger, and several smaller bags (inside the bigger ones, for the smaller LEGO pieces), which are numbered similarly to the official LEGO set bags. A1 and A2 contains the pieces for the old workshop, B1 and B2 for the old moulding machine, C1 and C2 for the designer's office, and finally D1, D2, and D3 contains the pieces for the modern factory with the big moulding machine. The building instruction booklet is really high quality, just like the ones which you get with the bigger Creator Expert sets these days. I believe most of you have already seen the set on different sites, but here are some photos of the final model, and an official unboxing video made by BrickLink! Official unboxing video:
  19. Thinking of recent initiatives such as Lego Forma or Bricklink's celebration of the 60 years anniversary of Lego, I wonder if crowdfunding represents a true opportunity for afols. In fact, whilst Forma is a means to test a new product, minimizing the risk and using a different marketing strategy, Bricklink’s case is much more interesting. First of all which is the limit between an afol and an entrepreneur or, better said, between a passion and a business? And when a passion, taken to the extremes, becomes a way to earn money is it still a hobby? But let us not kid ourselves, the amount of hours that a high level afol invests to conceive a model and then to build it will never be repaid, neither by Bricklink nor by the tip that Lego may allocate to him if his Idea becomes a catalogue’s product. Therefore Bricklink’s attempt constitutes a fascinating mix of the (narcissistic?) will to show off and share with peers a hobby mastery, and a business in its purest form, spontaneously born to fill a gap. Whereas Lego, in spite of its formal approvals, cannot or simply don’t want to listen, then afols will step forward, kickstarting their own models, thus creating a parallel market. It is a win-win situation, at least for both Bricklink and afols (creators and supporters/buyers). How many times people gave up on building complex afols’ designs shown on Rebrickable, despite having the instructions for free, due to the impossibility or the high difficulty to find the proper parts? Maybe in the future Bricklink and Brickowl will take charge of this tedious procedure and, being paid for the trouble, they will sell their own sets regularly. Perhaps this hypothetical new market will also become the second chance for many rejected Ideas.

    New Castle Set

    Hi Brickstorians, For those that aren't aware, Bricklink is hosting an event called the "AFOL Designer Program". Similar to Lego Ideas, entries are considered from AFOLs to build a set from all existing elements and the finalists will have their set put into a 'pre-order' phase. During this phase, orders can be placed to help a set reach 100% funding. The finalists have been chosen and I'm pleased to say that there's a Castle in there and it stands a *very* good chance of being produced, but we can all help by pre-ordering in February. And here it is, Löwenstein Castle (by Raziel_Regulus): You can find out more about the event and other finalists by visiting here. You never know, Lego could be so amazed by support for this Castle that they re-ignite their own Castle line. We can hope, right? I plan to pre-order! Who's with me? @Marghal Just thought to tag you bud.
  21. I have noticed that there seems to be a lot of posts where someone shares an LDD file and then someone else has trouble uploading directly to bricklink. I have found a method that works pretty well and I would like to share it here. Please share your feedback and feel free to link to this topic if you find someone in the same situation. Supertruper's Guide to retrieving parts from LDD using Rebrickable Things you will need: Rebrickable account Bricklink or brickowl account LDD file of something you want to build Here are the steps after you have the things above. 1. Log into Rebrickable and navigate to the "My Custom Lists" section 2. On the left click "Add New List" 3. (Optional) rename your list using the "Edit List Details" button 4. Click "Import Parts" and browse or drag your LDD file 5. Click "Append Parts" From here the parts list will load but there will be color errors and Minifig parts do not come up correctly. There will also be no prints selected. Any printed parts will need to be updated. 6. Once all the parts are adjusted click "Buy Parts" from here you can add them to your Bricklink or Brickowl account Thanks for reading, please don't hesitate to provide feedback or corrections. Please also feel free to ask for help here and I will try to help you out as much as I know how.
  22. As Studio is gradually getting new parts added with some updates from time to time, it's time for you to post details about the new parts and show them to us as they become available. Thanks.
  23. Hello all! After previously brickling the dropship with AT OT, I set out to bricklink another, this time being the UCS Death Star II. For a used one, the cheapest on bricklink goes for around 800 AUD, and I managed to get one for 600 AUD in total. There are many older parts that are very expensive but can be swapped for cheaper ones. I have managed to build the internal structure but I'm still waiting for more parts to arrive. There will be more updates as the rest of the pieces arrive :)
  24. I wanted to buy all parts for my first MOC on Bricklink and since i've never done this i wanted to ask You few questions. A. Firstly there are two sites on Bricklink to buy from Wanted list: 1. https://www.bricklink.com/v2/wanted/buy.page?utm_content=subnav 2. https://www.bricklink.com/v2/wanted/shop.page From this what i check second is better as You exactly see what parts are You missing and in what count, and is showing better prices when using autofinder, which do You use and why there are two diffrent sites? B. Do You buy bricks only from country in which You are living (because of lower costs of delivery)? Or from whole continent like Europe (from this what i see it is better option as You are able to buy all parts in most cases) Or You are just using option from anywhere, but delivery costs aren't too high in this option? C. Besides filters: -exclude disliked stores -exclude stores that do not ship to me It is worth to use any others? D. Are You buying in stores when total price is below min buy? E. Are You buying parts for MOCs from anyother pages, is it worth? Thanks for help!
  25. Recently I have found a new 3d printing provider which can deliver in the needed quality and in a reasonable price range. I'm now searching for a reseller in US or Kanada which is able to cover this market with his bricklink store. Currently the possible end user price range for these items can be between $1.5-$2. If somebody is interested, please contact me. Woody64 Here you see the delivered items and in the background the first figures. The group shown above is wearing older prints from different 3d printing providers.
