About

We are a small group of LEGO® fans who are frustrated with the overly clunky and outdated LEGO® fan, trading and sharing websites currently on the internet and we want to change that. We want to offer a simple, practical solution for LEGO® fans to share, buy and sell their instructions and LEGO® pieces, that is clean, intuitive, and most important of all, 100% free for LEGO® fans to use!

We all have full time jobs and have spent the last 6 months working on the project in our spare time, researching, planning and developing the technology needed to make the site work. With your support we can have the entire team work solely on this project, bring the site to completion, fully tested and fine-tuned to ensure that it stays updated and continues to have great features added for many years to come.

We are also extremely proud to announce that we have joined forces with the one and only Jack Streat, author of ‘LEGO Heavy Weapons’, a book about realistic replica weapons that actually fire LEGO® bricks!

He has given us exclusive access to his G36 working assault rifle plan, which we will send out to people once the site is launched. Plus a set of signed LEGO® Heavy Weapon books holding an exclusive LEGO® secret.

We are also printing a limited edition A3 poster set of Jack Streats front cover for his G36 manual.

Risks and challenges

Of course, during any large scale project like this there can be any number of design and technical challenges to overcome, but having worked on many large scale projects in the past we are extremely confident of delivering theBrickstop.com on time and to the highest standards which we expect from ourselves.

We have already completed a large amount of the back-end planning and design, plus we have a bricks and parts list sourced. We have a clear vision of how the site should work and all that we need now is to be able to devote the time and resource needed to bring the site to life!
