  Dear BrickLink members,

We are extremely excited to announce that BrickLink Limited has entered into a definitive purchase agreement to be acquired by the LEGO Group. As the LEGO Group has announced today through its official press release, the transaction is expected to close by the end of 2019.

I am absolutely thrilled to hear this!! Best news ever. As a result, I have
decided to go back on what I said in January of this year (that I would never
return to the site or reactivate my account).

Never say never, eh? Lesson learned. Looking forward very much to the future
of BrickLink under new ownership.

Wow, welcome back!

  While this is BIG news, I am still skeptical on whether it really means anything
bad for any of us.

TLG had the power to squash BL at any time. This is an organized group profiting
on reselling exclusively their own product. Even if there wasn't a legal
issue, they could tie the question in courts all over the world until the owners
gave in. I am sure it would have cost a fraction of the amount they bought BL
for.

Either they are playing a long game, or they truly want to preserve the community.

As I said in another post: This acquisition goes right along with the "Rebuild
the World" campaign. What's better than to say there are thousands of sellers
you can buy your childhood sets from, parts to finish off the sets that have
lost pieces or merge sets and parts from different decades or genres to create
whatever your heart desires.

Just think of the sales we would have if the BL logo ended up on the "Rebrick
the World" tv commercials or social media ads. Lego will continue to make new
sets and spark new ideas. BL is their missing "link" to keep those ideas going.

Spot on. Very rare a business is purchased with the sole intent of reducing its
success or revenue. For every bricklink there are several others that would fill
the gap if TLG shit it down.

My thoughts are they will endorse us, bring more visibility to increase sales,
and make some minor adjustments as we go. Things that we have been asking for
for a decade plus and that have gone unanswered. Worst case is they increase
seller fees a percentage point or two.

I’m excited to now unofficially “work” for LEGO.


A lot of businesses are bought to shut them done. Microsoft in the 90's was
really bad at this. So was EA(Electronic Arts)bad at this too. How lego has strong
arm the retailers to to exculde there product from coupons. Lego anti reseller
stance. This was a dream come true to them. How dated this website is, will it
be worth them updating it when they already have a website you can buy bricks
on. Lego wants to control how there product is being sold period....

We have several of these left, that we’d like to hand out to fellow BL members.
If you think your child would enjoy this 2011 Lego film, let us know.

It’s a fun production directed by David Scott, with music composed by John Williams.
A comic adventure with Master Yoda sensing a “disturbance in the Force” while
leading a class of Jedi younglings on a tour of the Senate chambers, and the
rambunctiousness Yoda and the boisterous Jedi younglings get up to.

It’s not much this year, but the Blu-ray/DVD is new with factory seals intact.
Making it a nice little item to gift-wrap as a stocking stuffer, or a gift for
a friend or neighbor’s child. Maybe as a new distraction for the kids in their
room, while you and the spouse grab some alone time

There are no strings attached, Lego giveaways are just something my kids and
I do this time of year, mostly in our hometown, but more recently on BL. We’ll
send them out in order of request received.

It’s a gift, so shipping is free. Regretfully, as we are covering the shipping
cost, the offer extends to US based members only.

You really are a good and kind person.

Thanks!

It’s my son and daughter’s program. The proceeds of our inventory I turned over
to them years ago. But yeah, I started the seasonal visits to homeless shelters
in our area, with Lego donations and money, long ago when they were young. As
to the continuation of this BL offer, it’s my son and daughter’s call. They are
in fact, the “good and kind” ones.

I’m that crotchety old man, like you John

Welcome back! I'd say that's not at all a change of heart - just a
logical response to the changed conditions

I would be appreciative if you could send one to me. My 8 year old grandson
loves Star Wars and would enjoy this movie greatly. Thank you.

Great!

Your label is printed and your grandson's gift is ready to go, Kevin. I'll
wait until I print all of the labels before shipping out tomorrow or the day
after.
