Over the last few months, I've been gradually enhancing the search pages. I think Rebrickable's search features were already the most powerful and easy to use you can find, but the new system is far easier to use on mobiles and for casual LEGO users who aren't as familiar with the catalog as most AFOLs.
How would you like your MOC to appear on LEGO's social media pages such as Facebook or Instagram?
The LEGO Community Team are seeking certain themed MOCs to be featured on their social media pages for special events throughout April and May.
The Rebrickable-hosted Premium MOCs feature was introduced in late 2017 when Mocplans shut down. There were thousands of LEGO fans who needed access to the building instructions they had purchased, so Rebrickable started hosting them. At the same time, it became possible to submit new MOCs using this hosting method. This is now our preferred way of hosting Premium MOCs (vs self-hosted where the designer has to serve the files and handle payments), and so I have spent a lot of time lately focusing on improvements to make it fully competitive with other digital sales platforms out there.
If there's one thing I love more than LEGO, it's space. And for the last several years, any fan of space is well aware of SpaceX and what they have achieved with their revolutionary Falcon line of rockets.
So another year has come and gone, for me 2018 seemed to go by very quickly! Rebrickable is now 7 years old, so let's take a look at how big it has grown :)
It has been asked many times, and has been on my to-do list for ages, but finally the concept of ‘Any Color’ parts has been added.
The part color called [No Color] has been renamed to [No Color/Any Color], to better match it's new meaning. In official LEGO Set inventories it's used...
Six months ago I announced a monthly raffle for Pro Plan members. To date there have been six winners and almost $1000 worth of LEGO given away :) To finish up the year, the December raffle will be worth a huge €400 - enough to buy nearly anything from the LEGO store, including:
LEGO 21311 Voltron is a LEGO Ideas set that hit it's 10K supported milestone over 2 years ago, and then finally approved for production about 1 year ago. I've been waiting not-very-patiently for it to arrive, but it's finally here. This final LEGO produced version looks fairly different to the original fan-designer's model, so let's take a look at how it turned out.
It's time for another round of new Rebrickable features. These will hopefully improve the way you manage your LEGO collection, and help you get the most out of the site. Each new feature is detailed below.
