I've added a couple of new features recently that might be of interest:
- You'll recall that in December we announced a partnership with BriXtar and we are currently running a competition with them. Now, we are pulling in data on alternative builds from BriXtar and displaying it on set details pages. We've been doing that for some time with Rebrickable so now you'll find alternative builds from both sources under the 'Alt builds' tab at the bottom of the page. A good example is 10242 MINI Cooper MK VII which has 16 alternative builds available. The listing also now shows the percentage of all parts in the set used in the model.
- For some time now you've been able to view 3D versions of sets on set details pages, thanks to Mecabricks. Now, you can do the same for minifigs. Mecabricks users have created 3D versions of around 1500 minifigs which are now available to view on our minifig detail pages, such as this one.
If you haven't checked out Mecabricks, you should, it's superb. We are spoilt for choice for digital designers these days but Mecabricks stands apart as one that is used entirely in a browser meaning you can use it on any device. Awesome new rendering features have recently been added making it easy for anyone to create photo-realistic images of their models.
I've also removed an unused feature.
- Links to external (written) reviews and Eurobricks reviews are no longer shown on set details pages. They were good ideas at the time but hardly anyone is writing reviews these days (everyone creates videos now it seems) so the features were sitting languishing unused and unloved.
I hope you appreciate the changes and if you have any suggestions, do let me know in the comments.
