Brickset.com was launched in 1997 and since then has become is the premier LEGO database on the Internet. Originally set up to record the myriad of promotional sets that were appearing at that time, it has expanded over the years to become the primary reference on LEGO sets on the internet.
This site is owned and operated by Brickset limited, registered in England, company registration number 7754012.
Huw Millington, Director, Brickset ltd.
Huw is the main man behind Brickset. He founded the site before half the site's visitors were born, in 1997.
His roles at Brickset are to maintain the website and database code (he's the only one that does this), to continually evolve it to ensure it remains the best LEGO database on the web, and to keep it updated with news, set information, photos and so on.
He's a founder member of the Brickish Association, the UK club for adult LEGO fans, and an ex-LEGO Ambassador (first and second cycles in 2005/6).
When not working on the site or building with LEGO he enjoys photography and cycling around the Solent area of southern England, where he lives with his wife and two daughters.
Huw is supported by a team of administrators, news correspondents and moderators. See the list of members with special priveleges to find out who helps and what they do.
How the site is funded
Brickset is free for everyone to use and is also free of distracting and unsightly advertisments and it is hoped that it can continue to be.
The site is funded by affiliate marketing. When you purchase something after clicking on a link to eBay, Amazon, LEGO.com, Argos or other merchants, Brickset receives a small commission. It's only small, but it adds up!
