Time to see what happened in 2017 and play with some numbers!
The volume of traffic received in 2017 was fairly close to 2016, with a much smaller growth compared to previous years.
We will be celebrating the 60th anniversary of the LEGO brick together with the 86th anniversary of the LEGO Brand. This year is bound to be the year the world's minifigure population will surpass the human population (7.5 billion). The year LEGO will introduce The Powerpuff Girls and Unikitty and reintroduce Jurassic World and Harry Potter. And we are getting the new Power Functions 2.0 and two new Train sets! Combined with Building Bigger Thinking and vintage Exclusive sets, it is going to be, without any doubt, a fantastic year to be a LEGO fan! So to whet your appetite, or to keep you updated, here is our (almost) up-to-date and revised review of all the new 2018 LEGO sets.

Which LEGO Technic fan by now has not heard of Madoca1977? Two years ago he burst onto the MOC scene with some of the best Technic MOCs the LEGO world had ever seen, and has been releasing excellent MOC after excellent MOC ever since.
Now, he has agreed to sit down with us folks at Rebrickable for an exclusive interview. Read on to learn all about the man behind the Madoca1977 moniker!
I didn't do a birthday post in August this year, instead I decided to switch to calendar year annual updates. Rebrickable's third year saw lots of user growth, lots of new functionality, and lots of data improvements.
Due to a number of issues with the current method of naming and describing minifig parts, we are looking at making some changes.
Check out Jantjeuh's description of what we are proposing in the forum and give us some feedback.
Rebrickable actually turned 2 years old last month, and I completely forgot about it :) The site has continued to grow and has had many great changes made in the last year.
