BrickLink Designer Program Series 4 Finalists

You might remember that last month BrickLink members were invited to vote for their favorite projects from BrickLink Designer Program Series 4. There were 235 projects submitted by talented LEGO fans, each with a chance to become official LEGO sets.

A couple of days ago, the BrickLink Designer Team announced the five winners. These projects now will go through some final tweaks before they will be available for crowdfunding and you can purchase your own copies of these very unique LEGO sets.

The five finalists are as follows: Merchant Boat by NicolasCarlier, Wild West Train by lucky, Medieval Seaside Market by Bricks_fan_uySiege Encampment by SleeplessNight, and The Riverside Scholars by Hanwas.

At this point, the BrickLink Design team will collaborate with the fan designers to prepare their projects for production. The Model Governance Team and Building Instruction Team will be making any final adjustments before locking the designs for pre-production. This process will take until the end of the year.

The finalized designs will be available for crowdfunding sometime in February of next year and BrickLink members will be able to pre-order their favorite projects, with a limit of 2 of each per household. All projects that receive over 3,000 pre-orders will be produced as official LEGO sets, and up to 30,000 of each set will be manufactured during a limited, one-time production run.

What do you think? Are you happy with the voting results? Are you planning to participate in the crowdfunding and get any of the sets? Feel free to share and discuss in the comment section below!

    Honestly, I’m getting a little tired of all the castle projects coming out of this program. I really wanted something smaller and more affordable, but still creative, like the garbage truck we talked about last time. Or the sewer, or something like that.

    I like the train. It reminds me of the Lone Ranger train from years ago. But I’m so discouraged that these sets get snapped up in just a few minutes. I have to go to work. I can’t sit around to order them when they go live.

    I like all of them, but the boat is probably my favorite. But I agree with others, they should really add some smaller sets in the mix. These are all going to be pricey.

    The castle fans really make themselves known in the bricklink program. Even the ship and train are distinctly old timey despite not being medieval. Lego is really underserving this audience right now. Maybe LOTR was supposed to occupy that area the way Star Wars took over for Lego Space, but it seems that people really do want to make old buildings from Lego.

      There’s also a similar thematic overlap for Dungeons & Dragons, which at least would see a CMF series after the commemorative set.
