Crowdfunding for the LEGO BrickLink Designer Program is now underway

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.

Click through the links below to secure your pre-orders:

910001 The Castle in the Forest
910007 BIONICLE Legends
910010 The Great Fishing Boat
910016 Sheriff’s Safe
910017 Kakapo
910025 Particle Accelerator
910028 Pursuit of Flight

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.

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.
