Hi everyone,

I understand why many of you feel the way that you do. As I said earlier, this
is a huge change for all of us! I'd like to address some of the concerns
brought up in the comments.

First of all, BrickArms is NOT a clone brand. BrickArms produces original,
LEGO-compatible items. You do not have to worry about receiving any BrickArms
items disguised as original LEGO items.

Are we planning on adding more brands (such as Lepin or Megablox) after this?
No. Are we open to it? Yes! However, for another brand to even be considered
it would have to reach what BrickArms has achieved as far as quality and popularity.

I'm not asking anyone to like or even accept these changes but I am
asking you to please give this time. The only way we will know for sure if this
new direction works on BrickLink is by trying.

Thanks

- Jaclyn

1. If it's LEGO-compatible, it's a clone brand. You can't sugar-coat it. 2. I see you are open to selling Mega Bloks & Lepin. And to that I say, @$!£%*&?$£!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
