Crowdfunding is officially open!

Pre-order your favorite designs to help bring them to life

by The BrickLink Team | Feb 01, 2019 13:59 EST

 

In case you missed it, BrickLink and the LEGO Group are celebrating 60 years of the LEGO brick with the AFOL community by realizing unique designs with truly original themes. We received over 400 submissions, and 16 finalists were chosen from 9 different countries. Starting today, you can pre-order designs from the AFOL Designer Program to help bring some incredibly creative designs to the market in a way never before possible.

 

How does crowdfunding work?

During this phase, you can pre-order your favorite designs to help them reach 100% funding. Once successfully funded, the design is packaged with instructions to become a limited edition 60 Years Anniversary set exclusively available on BrickLink. You may pre-order a maximum of 3 per design, and you also receive FREE SHIPPING. Free shipping applies to both domestic and international buyers and is available for pre-orders only.

 

Not sure or not ready to pre-order? Simply click on the bookmark icon ( ) and we’ll send you a reminder before pre-orders close.

 

What’s next?

If the design you backed is successfully funded, your payment method will be charged the full amount after April 15, 2019. If the design is not successfully funded, you will not be charged. We will begin shipping orders in May 2019.

 

To see all the finalists, visit the Crowd Project page.

 

Thank you,

The BrickLink Team
