Hello, Fellow BrickNerds!

A new era has begun for BrickNerd. BrickNerd started in 2013 as a place to share the creativity of fellow LEGO builders, to tell the stories behind the bricks, and to share news from the hobby and community. The new BrickNerd is following exactly in those footsteps, with the added goal to increase the connections within the LEGO community. BrickNerd has brought together an amazing group of international contributors, but we need your help.

What BrickNerd Wants to Become

The LEGO fandom online seems more spread out than ever, and we hope BrickNerd becomes a global hub redirecting you to the best the LEGO community has to offer. We are working to make BrickNerd a place to highlight not only amazing MOCs but the builders behind them-- the AFOLs, designers, customizers, filmmakers, writers, organizers and more who all collectively use LEGO to build connections within the LEGO hobby. We also hope to shine a light on some aspects of the hobby that haven’t received that much attention so far.

What We Are Doing

We are posting daily in-depth articles highlighting the LEGO community, MOCs and WIPsbuilding techniquesinterviews with buildersconvention newsbuilding instructionscontestsin-depth conversations on relevant topicsinsight behind the LEGO community, and more. We want to keep drawing on the expertise in the community to get nerdy and talk about building, sorting, transporting, lighting, photographing, collecting, buying, and customizing LEGO.

How You Can Help

We want BrickNerd to continue being a place to come together as a community and celebrate the culture of building LEGO. But we can't do that alone. Everyone who contributes to BrickNerd is a volunteer, writing in their spare time. We want to continue giving back to the community by writing high-quality articles, conducting research into LEGO topics on your behalf, sponsoring LEGO conventions, hosting building contests with cool prizes, and making some amazing swag to share--all while NOT shoving lots of advertising in your faces. We can do that with your help. 

Become a BrickNerd Patron

Your support at any level is appreciated. It will help us continue highlighting the amazing LEGO community and help us have more freedom to tackle even bigger projects we have planned coming up.

Plus, Swag!

We've worked with some amazing businesses like EclipseGrafx and Chrome Block City to offer awesome swag as a thank you for your support--printed badge bricks, printed Nerdly bricks, minifigures and even a CHROME BURP element. How cool is that!? We're also welcoming you into the BrickNerd family by adding supporters to our private Discord and hosting regular video chats with our international team called "Nerd Out Nights." We hope to see you soon!
