BrickLink Designer Program Round 3 Sets

We’re pleased to announce the third round of crowdfunding for the BrickLink Designer Program will open May 17th at 10:00am Pacific / 7:00pm CET / 6:00pm UTC. We invite LEGO fans to pre-order their favorites among nine fan projects on the BrickLink Designer Program page.

The first five projects to reach the goal of 3,000 pre-orders will be produced as a limited edition set. Up to 10,000 of each will be produced based on pre-orders received from registered BrickLink members. Round 3 crowdfunding will close at 10:00am Pacific on June 21.

Here are the candidates for the third and final round of crowdfunding, along with their prices:

  • Mountain View Observatory by ThomasW_BL for $319.99
  • Space Troopers by nickroyer for $199.99
  • 1950s Diner by pix027 for $129.99

  • Brickwest Studios by BrickyBricks82 for $349.99

Round 1 of crowdfunding was held during the summer of 2021 and Round 2 in fall 2021. This third and final round of crowdfunding concludes the BrickLink Designer Program invitational where up to 15 out of 26 projects will ultimately be realized across the three rounds.

Designer Program sets will feature digital building instructions provided by the LEGO Building Instructions mobile app. Digital instructions help us fulfill our Planet Promise by using less paper and saving on shipping weight, which in turn reduces emissions while delivering your set to you. The app lets you zoom, rotate, and view your model in 3D and ghost view mode to see how far you’ve come and what part you’re in the process of building. The LEGO Building Instructions app is great at keeping track of complex builds and makes it easy to save your building steps online so you can recycle instruction books.

PDF building instructions will also be made publicly available when sets begin shipping.

Sincerely,
The BrickLink Designer Program Team

And 21 min after the launch, the 5 winners are already known. And the price doesn’t seem to have counted much. Congrats to the winners :) And to the buyers :)
