In case you forgot, the second chance at the Bricklink Designer Program opens once again on 3 August 2021 in the following time zones:
United States: 12:00pm PST
Europe: 9:00pm CET
Australia: 5:00am AEST (4th August)
Following the disastrous first round where less than ideal regulations meant that some enterprising fans made off with multiple copies of Bricklink Designer Program, and following heavy lobbying by LEGO fans through the LEGO Ambassador Network, LEGO and Bricklink eventually relented, and opened up a second chance for those of you who missed out.
This time, an extra 5,000 copies of the Kakapo, Pursuit of Flight, Great Fishing Boat or the Sherrif’s Safe can be pre-ordered, but unfortunately, the Castle in the Forest will not be part of this, as they oversold in the first round.
Here’s a refresher of what’s going to be different for this round:
There will be purchase limits in place, where you can only pre-order one of each set.
This second batch will be shipped later on in June 2022. Original run of 5,000 sets will still be shipped in January 2022.
There will be regional caps in place once again, so if you are unlucky enough to be in Singapore, or countries in Asia without an official LEGO.com Online Store, you’re out of luck once again.
Out of the four sets, judging based off the first round, I expect the Great Fishing Boat to go the quickest, followed by the Kakapo!
