Attention parts sellers

Posted by ,

The excellent site Rebrickable has made some improvements lately including some to make it easy to buy the parts you need to complete the sets you're trying to build. It does this by importing inventories from parts sellers and wants to expand the number of sellers that participate, so has asked us to publish this call to action:

Do you own a parts store, either on Bricklink or your own custom site? Rebrickable is currently waiving the usual small monthly fee and offering a free three month trial period for listing your store.

Rebrickable has some great features that help users buy the LEGO parts they need. Thanks to a number of new features, buying parts in bulk couldn't be easier:

1. Find a Set or MOC you want to build (or import your own parts/cad file)
2. Get the list of parts you are missing
3. List the stores that stock those parts and automatically pick the cheapest ones
4. Automatically add parts to your shopping cart or wanted list for the store(s) that offer your parts.

The more stores that take part in this, the better the user experience will be. Stores that are interested in participating can read some details here or email [email protected].

I want to find a database where you can list all of your spare pieces (not just sets) and see what sets (official or custom) you can build out of them.

^Same, so I can easilier discover sets that are mismatched that you get, say, a lot on eBay.

^ & ^^ Rebrickable can do that. After registering you can enter all your loose parts in addition to any complete sets you own.

^But I still haven't figured out how to do it, anyway. Come to think of it, could you tell me (us) how to?

The "read some details" link sends me to "page not found."

^^ I assume you have an account and have imported/entered your list of loose parts. On the build page you will see two checkboxes "Include the X parts in My Parts List" and "Include the X sets in My Set Lists". The My Parts list is your loose parts so only tick that one. If I'm not clear, happy to help if you email me at [email protected]

^^ Thanks, I've setup a page for that URL which is actually missing an "s" on the end!

@nythom Thanks for the info. I have a lot of work ahead of me.... My wife isn't going to like this one bit.

Just used the site to order some parts I've been meaning to get. I really like the multi-buy function, except that there aren't very many stores signed up yet. Hopefully that will change in the future.

I could see this as potentially rivaling Bricklink, if enough Sellers jump in. Bricklink has gotten ridiculously hard to find anything, isn't user friendly, and I know doesn't like to partner much with Brickset either. It would be awesome to have a site like that and a site like Brickset work hand in hand.
