Which LEGO BrickLink Designer Program sets will sell out fast next?

With two LEGO BrickLink Designer Program series under our belt, we’re getting a good idea of what might sell out first in future series.

The second series of the LEGO BrickLink Designer Program is underway and three of the five submissions selected are still available while two sold out in a matter of hours. There are over two weeks until crowdfunding for Series 2 ends at the time of writing and only one more seems likely to sell out.

There are some trends between which models sell out first in the first series and the invitational phase, giving us an idea of what you should prioritise in the next couple of series. Specifically, LEGO Castle models always prove to be popular as well as that link to existing official sets.

Series 3

The third series’ five projects include one based on LEGO Castle – Forest Stronghold – which seems likely to sell out fast when crowdfunding starts in October. Otherwise, the minuscule Camping Adventure may be popular as the Mushroom House from Series 2 sold out quickly as the least expensive entry in the round.

The Harbormaster’s Office may be worth keeping an eye on too for the similarities to the retired LEGO Ideas 21310 Old Fishing Store but aside from that, it’s hard to see The Art of Chocolate and the Lost City models selling out within the first day.

Series 4

Series 4 of the LEGO BrickLink Designer Program has a much different selection to Series 3, focusing on medieval models more than ever before. Both the Medieval Seaside Market and Siege Encampment are likely to be exceedingly popular when crowdfunding starts in February and should be your top priority.

The Wild West Train may be popular too, though the Logging Railway in Series 2 still has plenty of stock to pre-order. Despite that, train models have been consistently popular otherwise and it may be worth keeping an eye on it. The Merchant Boat and The Riverside Scholars may not sell out, at least not within the first day.

It will be worth keeping the past series in mind when the five builds selected for the fifth LEGO BrickLink Designer Program phase are announced on August 19. Of course, it’s entirely possible that our speculation will be proven entirely wrong when the series start so we’d recommend making sure you are ready to pre-order the models as soon as you can.

LEGO has been a part of my life ever since I was young. It all started when my brother passed down 7657 AT-ST to me. It’s guided me through my early years, through school and eventually through my degree in journalism. I still have all my collection proudly on display, including my many NINJAGO sets, my favourite of all the LEGO Group’s themes. Outside of Brick Fanatics I am an avid gamer and enjoy a good game of Dungeons & Dragons.

    I’m only interested in The Art of Chocolate from this series.

    Article seems unclear. In one paragraph, it says “Both the Medieval Seaside Market and The Riverside Scholars are likely to be exceedingly popular when crowdfunding starts in February and should be your top priority.” And the next paragraph says “The Merchant Boat and The Riverside Scholars may not sell out, at least not within the first day.” So what is the actual view on Riverside Scholars?

      Apologies, that should have been the Siege Encampment – thanks for spotting that!
