Have you ever used a dating service to meet potential soulmates but felt like they never understood your LEGO passion? Do you feel like you’ve exhausted all your options to meet that special brick-building someone? Are you sick of spending time with your newly purchased bricks alone?

Worry no longer! Now is the time to take advantage of BrickLink’s 1x5 Finder. 1x5 Finder uses deep-learning algorithms to match users with prospective brickmates based on preferences, like building style or favorite LEGO theme. Begin the search for your fellow brick-lover today, and take advantage of some of our newest features and upgrades.


* 1x5 Finder: Advanced Member Search

If you are picky when it comes to buying and sorting your bricks, then you will truly appreciate the advanced search feature. With the option to search for members by specific criteria such as favorite LEGO themes, most purchased parts, and favorite brick color, you will have no trouble narrowing down the options to find your ideal match.


* Upgraded Member Collage

One of the most unknown features of BrickLink is the member collage. To help personalize the experience, we’ve created an online venue where you can upload and share your *real* profile photos and status updates. It has been around long before social media sites such as Facebook or Instagram were born. It’s also unknown how many AFOL community members have found their brickmate with this feature. Today, we announce a couple of important upgrades to our mysterious member collage service.

1. Photo verification

Our AI logic and 24-hour special admin team will monitor and filter out unrealistic profile photos from the system. Of course, members can police each other by reporting fake photos to our admins.

2. Member suggestion

Collage photos will be sorted based on your preferences and proximity to other members. This will guarantee that the best-matching members will be listed first.


* Wanted List Upgrade for your Brickmate

Haven’t found your perfect brickmate yet? Just save your matching conditions to our new Wanted List. As soon as a new member that matches your conditions joins BrickLink, you will be notified via message or email.

As usual, we thank you for your continued support and hope that 1x5 Finder will help you find the person of your dreams.

That is hilarious..

Maybe not surprising, I hear there is a Facebook group to find a lego compatible
mate.

95% men, 5% women.

Not surprising. If my husband touches my Lego, we are headed for divorce. So
I have to assume most women aren't signing up for that service since they
want to keep those dirty male hands off their Lego.

LOL! Yes, for me, I have solved that problem. Just not sure if every woman wants
to go that route.

Well I updated my profile, but it says my perfect brickmate is this guy with
an animated gif ID picture that looks like it was left over from a ten-year old
MySpace page. So maybe the algorithm needs a little tweaking.

Is a customs form required if your match is international?




I was wondering when someone would post an April Fools' prank on here
