BrickLink AFOL Designer Program sets now available to order

If you missed the crowdfunding phase for BrickLink’s AFOL Designer Program, you can now order copies of the 13 sets that reached their funding goals.

Well, all except Raziel_Regulus’s Löwenstein Castle (pictured above), which has already sold out. You can still join the waitlist, however, which will operate on a “first come, first serve” basis, according to BrickLink.

Otherwise, you have until July 1 to place orders for any of the other 12 successful fan-designed sets. There’s a limit of three copies of each set per order, and you’ll have to pay shipping costs, which were included with pre-orders.

Sets will begin shipping to early backers next month, with BrickLink estimating that all pre-orders will have been fulfilled by the end of summer. There’s no word yet on when general orders placed now will ship, with all sets currently on “backorder”, but presumably it’ll be after the pre-orders.

The community response to the program was overwhelming, with 11,485 people backing the finalists during the crowdfunding phase.

“As you know, this is a pilot program for us and we are learning and refining as we go,” BrickLink said in a statement to backers last week. “We want to thank you for your patience and your continuous support.”

I like to think of myself as a journalist first, LEGO fan second, but we all know that’s not really the case. Journalism does run through my veins, though, like some kind of weird literary blood – the sort that will no doubt one day lead to a stress-induced heart malfunction. It’s like smoking, only worse. Thankfully, I get to write about LEGO until then. You can follow me on Twitter at @brfa_chris.
