Thank you for your continued support over the last 2 decades.

Dear BrickLink community,

  

On June 19th of this year, we will mark the 20th anniversary of the creation of BrickLink.

  

Dan Jezek dedicated his life to creating a platform where all LEGO® fans could find the special bricks that they neededThis platform bridged their dream creation to the missing pieces, and the platform is what you know today as BrickLink. BrickLink became the place to meet others who share the same passion for the colorful bricks and the build itself.

  

We grew, we evolved, and we are proud of the accomplishments we have made thus far. But as confident as we are in the future, we recognize that BrickLink will not be what it is today without this community. We formally thank you for your trust and support all these years. We would like to express our gratitude for you and members of the community for choosing BrickLink as your main source for LEGO elements and sets.

  

How are we celebrating?  

We are celebrating by hosting a 20 Days of BrickLink event to highlight milestones and members from the past and present while looking toward the future. We invite you to share your story about any of the following:  

  1. Coming across BrickLink – Kindly share your story about how you came across BrickLink, and how it has changed your interest in LEGO elements and sets.  

  1. Finding friendship – Please tell us about a time you found friendship on BrickLink, highlight the moment you interacted with them, and how you met in real life (if applicable). 

  1. Buyer/seller story – Everyone has a favorite BrickLink seller/buyer story. Can you share with us what your favorite story is? 

  1. Hopes for future BrickLink – What hopes do you have for BrickLink in the near future? 

You will be able to include a photo or video to further illustrate your story, and you can make a submission starting today. If you have more than one story to share with the community, we encourage you to share it!  

 

Prefer to upload a MOC insteadGo to My Studio, proceed to edit your MOC’s details, then add the tag 20 Years of BrickLink so that other members can easily find it.  

 

Where can I find more information? 

 

An announcement with a general daily schedule will be posted on Friday, June 19th. Stay tuned, and stay connected with us on Facebook or Instagram.

 

We look forward to reading your story! 

 

Thank you, 

The BrickLink Team
