CUUSOO BRICK helps users get what they want.



It’s an unofficial LEGO® community site where all brick fans can share their own brick projects that are not commercialized.

CUUSOO team launched LEGO® CUUSOO officially togather with LEGO® in 2008. It become the first consumer generated brick community with crowd sourcing and crowd funding features. With its successful results such as LEGO® Shinkai 6500, LEGO® HAYABUSA and LEGO® Minecract, it was transferred to the LEGO® IDEAS in April 2014.
When we transferred our service to LEGO®, we were approached by Bricklink to help them. CUUSOO BRICK was opened with sponsorship by bricklink to launched in December 17, 2014.
CUUSOO BRICK aims to be alternative function to the LEGO® IDEAS and the bricklink MocShop. LEGO® IDEAS’s prerequisite is 10,000 votes and the MOCShop requires instruction to be made. CUUSOO BRICK aim to provide crowd sourced service to make instruction when 100 votes are gathered.
Once the brickwork achieves 100 votes, it may be available to purchase at Bricklink MOCShop.
Founded in 2000, BrickLink is the world’s largest marketplace to buy and sell Brick parts, sets, and minifigs. We are honored to establish a relationship with them while we maintain close relationship with former LEGO CUUSOO team at the LEGO® group.
