Back in 2014, I met with LEGO to talk about Rebrickable and throw around some ideas for making something awesome together. The one thing that stood out for them was how Rebrickable highlights the value of alternate builds - i.e. MOCs that can be built from just a single official set. With the Rebrickable Build calculations making these MOCs stand out with 100% matching results, they have proven very popular among users. For the last ~6 months, I have been working closely with a select few Rebrickable designers and a small group within LEGO to build out a new website. Now finally, after 2 years, we have something to show for this effort – LEGO Remake.
I have created a new photo/file sharing site dedicated to LEGO fans: Bricksafe.
Bricksafe is currently open for early adopters, but I will be closing registrations in the next day or two. This is to help me ensure the site is fully stable and ready for a full release to everyone in the coming weeks :)
The guys at BrickOwl have been working hard and I'm pleased to announce that they have now setup integration with Rebrickable! BrickOwl is a great new online LEGO marketplace where you can buy and sell LEGO parts or sets. The site already has hundreds of stores with more being added every day.
The talented ex-LEGO designer Nathanaël Kuipers has teamed up with Mattia Zamboni to release The LEGO Build-It Book, Vol 1: Amazing Vehicles. They have created 10 professional building instructions for alternate models of the popular 5867 Super Speedster.
