Crowdfunding is now open for the first seven projects in the LEGO BrickLink Designer Program, including Jason Allemann’s Pursuit of Flight and Hayden Pye’s Kakapo.
You’ll likely need to act fast if you want to grab any of them, though, as just 5,000 copies of each rejected LEGO Ideas set are available to pre-order. Only the first five projects to reach 3,000 backers will actually go into production, while the other two won’t progress beyond the crowdfunding phase.

An eighth project – ThomasW’s Mountain View Observatory – was originally intended to be part of this crowdfunding round, but was yesterday pushed back to a subsequent round owing to ‘unforeseen complexities’.
This crowdfunding phase will run until August 11, or until pre-orders hit the 5,000 limit on five of the seven projects. Two more crowdfunding rounds will then begin for the rest of the models in the BrickLink Designer Program on September 1 and November 1.
The successful projects from the first round are expected to go into production in September, with the first orders shipping out towards the end of the year.
