Collaboration with the LEGO Group

Introducing the AFOL Designer Program

by BrickLink Team | Sep 06, 2018 11:07 EST

AFOL Designer Program

 

Today is such an exciting day at the BrickLink office because we finally get to reveal a very special collaboration with none other than the LEGO Group. We’ve been bursting at the seams because of how long we’ve had to keep this program a secret! Now that we’ve all had a minute to scream and catch our breaths, let’s get into the details. 

 

What is the AFOL Designer Program?

  This program celebrates creativity by realizing unique AFOL designs with truly original themes. What better timing than to kick it off in the year of the 60th anniversary of the LEGO brick? For a limited time, BrickLink will be hosting the AFOL Designer Program. We are honored to help highlight your creativity and help make your designs a reality.

  

Where can I get more information?

An official announcement and more details about the program will be revealed Wednesday, September 12th. Mark your calendars!

Okay, maybe you need to change the disclaimer on the bottom of the website saying that Lego "does not sponsor, authorize, or endorse this site".....? Not sure wether I am happy or sad about this....

I'm not sure what AFOL stands for, but you may want to re-think the acronym. The 1st time I saw it, I read it as "awful" and now I can't not read it as the "Awful" Designer Program.
