About BrickLink Designer Program (BDP)

An initiative to sell fan creations under the BrickLink brand.

An initiative to package and sell fan creations through the LEGO(R) Group’s database and parts trading site, BrickLink brand.

Since BrickLink Designer Program may release products like modular building-style sets that might not be accepted in LEGO(R) Ideas, all LEGO(R) enthusiasts should keep an eye out!

After user voting and review by the management team, five carefully selected creations will be crowdfunded. If they exceed 3,000 orders, they will be put up for sale.
