BrickLink is being affected by a cyber attack

LEGO reseller BrickLink is suffering from a ‘cyber incident’, limiting who can buy and sell products through the site for the time being.

For many LEGO fans, BrickLink is the first stop for new sets or creative projects. Acquired by the LEGO Group in 2019, it allows people to buy new and used LEGO sets, minifigures and individual parts from various sellers. It has also produced original LEGO sets of its own via initiatives like the BrickLink Designer Program.

At some point in the last few hours, however, this notice has been posted to the BrickLink homepage.

As you can see, this incident places significant limits on how we interact with the site at the moment. If you’re looking to buy LEGO from international sellers via the BrickLink site, you will (it seems) be prevented from doing so in some circumstances. That said, if you’re a European LEGO fan looking to buy from someone within your own country or geographical region you should be okay.

Fortunately, cyber attacks on BrickLink appear to be rare. BrickLink will reportedly send out an update tomorrow on the site’s status. Until then, you might have to deal with one of your worst nightmares – being unable to buy LEGO for a short time.
