Q. How much does it cost to build your models?

expand_more
Each model page should have an estimated parts cost in the description based on average Bricklink orders.
Q. Why do my parts cost more/less than what your description says?
expand_less
expand_more
Prices tend to fluctuate on the brick-buying market place. There are also a few useful techniques that can be found on the “How To” video that may bring the cost down for you.
Q. Can you just sell the parts and instructions?
expand_less
expand_more
We don't currently have plans to do that as it requires a HUGE amount of work and we would have to markup the prices massively. Ordering the pieces yourself will always be the least expensive option.
Q. I'd like to sell my models on your site, how can I do that?
expand_less
expand_more
Click on the "Sell Your Designs" link at the top of this website and fill out that form. Make sure to include picture files or links to images of your creations. We are looking for extremely high build quality and durability so keep that in mind!
Q. Where do you buy your parts from?
expand_less
expand_more
There are several brick-buying websites. In the studio we exclusively order from bricklink.com due to their price point and higher diversity of parts to choose from.
Q. Do you ship LEGO bricks to my country?
expand_less
expand_more
No, we do not ship LEGO bricks, purchases are for instructions and partlists only.
Q. Do you include minifigures in your partlists?
expand_less
expand_more
No, minfigures are not included. The best fig for a set is pretty subjective so we let you decide. Often our READ ME files will have suggestions and bricklink.com link
Q. How do you estimate parts cost?
expand_less
expand_more
We use the “Buy All” function on bricklink and conduct 3 different searches. With those searches we take the highest and lowest costs and include them as the final approximate cost.
Q. Do you factor shipping into your estimated cost?
expand_less
expand_more
Yes.

Most brick vendors are located in the U.S. and Europe compared to the rest of the world. This means the part cost is most accurate for people living in these locations.


If you are living outside of these countries the average shipping cost from each vendor will increase your final price for all the bricks.
