ReBrick: From LEGO Fan To LEGO Fan
ReBrick is a social media platform, hosted by LEGO where adult users can share and discuss user-
created LEGO content online. We've mentioned it before, when it was launched before Christmas, but because it deals primarily with an aspect of the hobby that we don't cover here (MOC-ing) we haven't said much about it since.
Today LEGO has released a video in which Peter Espersen, the online community lead and the man in charge of ReBrick, explains the platform and what it sets out to achieve, that I think you'll find interesting, particularly if you've never visited the site before:
Although the site's focus is very much MOCs, there's no reason why content from Brickset can't be submitted there, and I encourage you to do so. In fact there are several entries there already.
I think it's great that LEGO is providing the service, providing a 'hub' to link fan sites and expose their content to a wider audience. As Peter says in the video, there are not many companies that do this.
Have you visited the site? Do you think it provides a valuable service? Or, do you prefer to visit a site that editorially controls the MOCs that are featured, like Brothers-Brick, so as to ensure only the best are shown?
