Topic: Lego just bought Bricklink
I'm really nervous about this, and don't see much good coming from it. Sure, more MOC contests, giveaways, and events, but at what long-term cost? Personally, I was loving the direction Bricklink was heading on it's own. Stud.io, the AFOL Designer Program, and the revamped/redesigned site were all fantastic changes.
While Brother's Brick points out the obvious, that it seems there's a major conflict of interest, I have a few other concerns. Will the Bircklink categories be swapped out for Lego's own color names and categories? (I prefer Bricklink's) Besides Brickarms, what other third-party products will they ban? How will this exist side by side with Lego's own online Pick-A-Brick service?
