Submit your models to Bricklink during the 4-week window before the deadline on June 2, 2023 at noon Pacific US time.
June 12th — June 30th
BrickLink cordially invites all members to vote for their favorite submissions (it would be stupid to vote for yer most hated submissions). This crowd vote weighs in alongside the Bricklink Designer Program’s internal selection criteria which influences the designs chosen for crowdfunding.
July — August
The Bricklink team will review each design for
profitability building experience, brand fit, and crowd favorites.
5 Designs Announced
Bricklink will unveil the five Series 2 designs and then assist designers to ensure their creations are all that they can be.
BrickLink members may pre-order their favorite sets, with a limit of 2 of each set per household. All sets that receive over 3,000 pre-orders will be produced. Up to 20,000 of each set will be manufactured during a limited, one-time production run. So don’t miss out!
Production and Shipping
The sets will enter production and orders will be ready for shipment approximately 6 months after pre-ordering, although the actual dates and shipping times may vary.
