40 LEGO set designers maintain BrickLists documenting their work and these are often updated by their creators.

More than 100 new sets were released on the 1st of January so there has been a flurry of activity on these BrickLists over the last few days. You can view them all here and keep a look out for design notes and information about the development process alongside many new products.

If any LEGO designers are reading this and would be interested in providing lists of their work then we would be delighted to host them here on Brickset.

This is my favorite feature on Brickset, I love it! So great to hear from the designers.

Bjarke Lykke Madsen has designed some of the best sets ever made, more so from the 90s and 00s. However the note about the McDonalds only being sold on the west cost is incorrect, it was actually sold by what we now call [email protected] I bought three of them, I still have one in a very sad looking box.

We’ll try to have a few more colleagues create their lists for you this year :)

Very nice! Though none of the updated Bricklists seem to include Lego Movie 2 sets... I can’t wait to learn what designers are responsible for some of those!

@Joel.Baker - Excellent, many thanks Joel!

Oh yes, who is the crazy genius behind UltraKatty and 5 length brick?!?
Or perhaps it is a bit like the first movie, with designers and film crew having many many iterations on overall flow?

I really love those and hope designers will keep updating them!

I was hovering over Watchpoint Gibraltar, as it's simply a great model even with my lack of Overwatch knowledge; to learn that Mark Stafford was the designer has tipped that one into my shopping basket!

These designer BrickLists and the designers' comments are a truly wonderful insight!

Mark Stafford's blurb says the new angled plates and bricks in Watchpoint: Gibraltar were designed for a wave of Star Wars sets coming out three months from now. Interesting...

These bricklists are great. Love the commentary in them! Also just fun to scroll and find that I have bought a lot of certain designers sets, their artistry shines through even though the box say LEGO.

And @Lyichir Joel.Baker who commented up there has some TLM2 stuff on his list.

Hmm. He says orange was first introduced for the Arctic sets in 2000, but I distinctly remember that color first showing up in Sebulba's Podracer and the Rebel pilot uniforms.

Anyways, this is way more than I can get through in one day, so most of them will have to wait for later, but it was interesting to start out with a designer showing off all these goofy little vintage sets that I'd never give a second thought to if they were released today, only to dig deeper into the list and find out the same designer either had a hand in, or was the sole designer on some of the more highly regarded sets of recent years. It was also really interesting to find out that the same guy who designed the big Tumbler (possibly my favorite build of all time) was the same guy who designed the original Shellraiser (which literally exploded in my hands as I was building it).

Love these set lists

My two favorite designers are Adam Grabowski and Mark Stafford.
Stafford's vehicles are unparalleled and I'm hoping if they do any new Indiana Jones sets Adam Grabowski be the lead on them again. He's got the touch and feel needed.
Both extremely talented.

My favorites are Tiago Catarino and Michael Knap. Love the aesthetics and subject matter.

Some of us do have a list, just it's not a 'Featured BrickList' ;)

@MelCad - Apologies Mel, that has been updated.

@jdm - You can find comments from some designers in the notes for each set on their respective BrickList.

Hello, just joined.
The lists look interesting but I wonder how does Brickset verify the information? Someone could be an imposter.

@Arcy:
One way would be to check the e-mail address. You can spoof a LEGO.com address as the sender, but being able to intercept the response is a little more difficult. Anyone who is currently working as a set designer would have a company address.
