We've been encouraging you to support Project Swapfig for some time. If you haven't done so yet, please consider doing so now: there's only about 18 hours left of the crowdfunding campaign and it's just under £400 shy of reaching its target. The purpose of the funding is to be able to redesign the site and thus make it more attractive and appealing to a wider audience.
Brickset member silentmode is the man behind the project and this is what he says about it:
"How many times have you wanted a particular minifigure, but didn't want to buy a whole set - or spend hours feeling through packets and risk getting the wrong one? Wouldn't it be easier and less hassle if you could find someone to trade with instead?
"Project Swapfig was created to bring people interested in minifigure trading together, as well as simplify the online trading process, and to introduce old and new fans of LEGO to the concept of trading. The site launched on 1 May 2013, and to date there are almost 500 members, and over 200 completed local and global trades. Check out the site right now at swapfig.com."
It's a great site which we fully endorse and encourage you to head on over to Zequs to pledge something: There are some great incentives on offer including gold minifigs. Remember: every little helps!
