News of exciting developments to help serve our community better

by Admin | Dec 02, 2020 13:38 EST

Dear BrickLink members,


This month, it will be one year since BrickLink joined the LEGO Group. We have seen many new people coming to BrickLink and a significant increase in site traffic, so we are very excited about our future. As we celebrate this first anniversary, we are very pleased to share details about the future direction of BrickLink.


In the video recording below, Julia Goldin and Marvin Park, the LEGO Group's Chief Marketing Officer and Head of BrickLink respectively, will provide an update on what’s planned. As you’ll hear from Julia and Marvin, the focus is on strengthening the BrickLink organization, creating opportunities for more community collaboration, and allowing you to be even more creative and connected!



Your involvement is very important to us and the success of our common future hinges on our ability to serve you the best we can. We would love to hear from you whether you would just like to share your thoughts or if you have questions. Please post in the forum and we’ll respond over the coming days.

Thank you to all BrickLink members, new and long-standing, for considering BrickLink and allowing us to be part of your LEGO passion.

Thank you,
The BrickLink Team
