Reviews

LEGO® product reviews can include, LEGO sets, games, merchandise, 3rd party LEGO instruction builds and third party parts that are supplementary to LEGO being the main focus for example, lights, 4D Tracks, SBrick and PFX brick etcetera.  (if you are uncertain about a third party product ask the admin team. 

Credit where credit is due, if you are using instructions or photos or anything from a third party, you MUST credit them in your article. If possible provide links to the original content so we can include these in the upload. If you are crediting printed material, name and date of publication is required.  

Reviews can take the form of an article or video. Once reviewed and approved they will be uploaded by admin. 

Be informative and honest. Try and find balance between good and bad however, be mindful of the target market for the product, i.e don’t be overly critical about how easy a Juniors set was to build as if you were expecting it to be Creator Expert level! Honest opinions are valuable though. Tell your story about the set. 

Highlight what you like most about the build. Consider making mention of new or interesting techniques used by the designer. 

If possible document new parts or new coloured parts (especially in an image) new part information is gold for hobbyists. 

Pictures are as good as a thousand words. Mobile phones take great pictures. Please try and get images with good light and clean backgrounds. A flat white or black sheet works wonders for this. 

A review does not have to be super long, one-two paragraphs is plenty, but you can make it as in depth as you wish. 

Video reviews will be accepted upon review. The video needs to be hosted on the owners YouTube, Facebook or Vimeo channel and able to be embedded in Brick Hub. A short synopsis must accompany the video to be added above the link. 

Knowledge Base Articles

KBA’s are a valuable tool to any community. There is a wealth of information out there and Brick Hub hope to centralise this and make it easy for people to access. KBA’s must have LEGO as the focal point and can include a variety of topics. If you are unsure if your topic will qualify, please check with admin. 

You can use a number of presentation methods to contribute to the Knowledge base for example, an article, video, how to, step by step etc. Please make the content clear and understandable from the point of view of someone who has never done it before!
