Doctor Who is the latest from the LEGO Ideas line of sets. The original submission was in Feb 2014 and included some variations and alternate possible Doctors. The final design chose to include two Doctors (but only one companion), and was pretty faithful to the original idea. It includes the detachable Tardis and interior control console.
Rebrickable has been running for four years now, with 2015 seeing plenty of growth.
The below chart shows the daily page views for the last 4 years. This last week has seen a big surge in users which I hope continues into 2016!
LEGO Dimensions is a console game with physical LEGO parts. There was a big marketing campaign around it, given it's tie-ins with lots of other franchises including Back To The Future, Portal, The Simpsons, Lord of The Rings, Jurassic World and many more. 71173 is the XBox 360 Starter Pack, there is an equivalent starter pack for a number of other games consoles.
I’m very excited to announce the release of my first mobile app – the Rebrickable LEGO Shopper.
It's been a while since we ran a competition. So to make up for that, we have come up with something a bit different. The new Top MOC Competition will be a continuous month-by-month award to the most liked MOC on Rebrickable. To make this as fair (and automated) as possible, the rules are a little different to normal...
So I haven't written about updates in a while, although I'm continuously tweaking things here and there. I've added a new feature that should have been there a long time ago. You can now "follow" designers and be notified when they submit MOCs. This is separate to the usual notifications for any MOCs that match your build threshold criteria.
The WALL•E set is the latest release from the LEGO Ideas platform, and has received a decent amount of news coverage lately, including plenty of criticism. In case you didn't know, WALL•E is the main character in the 2008 Pixar movie titled WALL•E.
The Predator Supercar by Nathanaël Kuipers is the first MOC that I've reviewed on Rebrickable. If you have not heard of Nathanaël before, he was a LEGO designer responsible for the design of several Technic sets from 2005 to 2008. He is also the author of The LEGO Build It Book series. Not just a Technic whiz, Nathanaël has also created dozens of amazing Creator alternate models which you can find on his website.
For the last couple of months, I have been working closely with BrickLink and BrickOwl to improve the user experience when buying LEGO parts. The results from this work has now been made available for Rebrickable users.
