We hear you have some questions about The Brothers Brick. We’ll do our best to answer them on this page.

What is The Brothers Brick?
The Brothers Brick is a blog for showcasing LEGO models and other LEGO related-material, such as news and event coverage. You are here.
How do I get my LEGO model blogged?
For complete details on getting your LEGO creation featured, read How to get blogged on The Brothers Brick.
Could you highlight my LEGO CUUSOO or Kickstarter project, please?
Yes, we’re happy to showcase great CUUSOO and Kickstarter projects. Unfortunately, most of the suggestions we get are for projects that don’t make a whole lot of sense. Read our post about guidelines for CUUSOO projects we support (with examples) to learn more.
What is TBB?
The commonly used acronym for The Brothers Brick.
What the heck is SNOT? What’s a MOC?
We try to avoid using the unique jargon of AFOLs (Adult Fans of LEGO), but occasionally we can’t help ourselves. Check out our glossary of LEGO terms to learn the lingo.
Are the models for sale?
Usually no. You could try contacting the creator directly but bear in mind that LEGO models are expensive.
Do you build all the models yourself?
No. Although each of our contributors is an accomplished builder in his or her own right, we mostly feature LEGO creations from other builders.
Are instructions or parts lists available for the models?
Generally no. Creating instructions is a time-consuming process that most builders would prefer to spend designing and building something new.
How do I get my event blogged?
Write a “press release” for us to use and bring it to our attention. For more advice, see How to get your LEGO event announced.
Can you add my blog/community to your blogroll?
Our LEGO blogroll started to become unmanageable, so we’ve instituted a policy of only linking to blogs and LEGO community websites that have been online and active for at least a year. If your website has stood the test of time, we’re happy to include it in our list of links.
