Back in 2014, I met with LEGO to talk about Rebrickable and throw around some ideas for making something awesome together. The one thing that stood out for them was how Rebrickable highlights the value of alternate builds - i.e. MOCs that can be built from just a single official set. With the Rebrickable Build calculations making these MOCs stand out with 100% matching results, they have proven very popular among users. For the last ~6 months, I have been working closely with a select few Rebrickable designers and a small group within LEGO to build out a new website. Now finally, after 2 years, we have something to show for this effort – LEGO Remake.
In late August, Kim Thomsen from the LEGO CEE Community Support team contacted myself and the Eurobricks team with a challenge. They are impressed with the database of alternate build MOCs that Rebrickable has accumulated and wanted to see what the community could come up with under some quite restricted conditions. These conditions just so happened to be similar to those forced on internal LEGO designers :)
