Hello everyone,

I'd like to help start a "Blok Link". We have the set/part/instructions databases. We just need a website and store capability. Who here has website making skills?

I've searched and found a few threads on here and Reddit regarding a site like Bricklink, but for MegaBloks and other brands. I think this is a great idea! Sadly, all the responses I've seen so far boil down to "There's not enough of a market. It's not worth it." I disagree.

Before Bricklink, people sold Lego on newsgroups, forums, eBay, etc. just like people do here. After Dan Jezek founded Bricklink, the popularity eventually grew into what it is now. I imagine that the demand, traffic, userbase, etc. would increase similarly if we pulled together and made a "Blok Link" for Mega Bloks and other brands. I'm not sure if the name "Blok Link" would be a copyright violation or not.

What do you think? Who's in?

I encourage this effort, but at this time I do not yet want the part images used in a marketplace platform.

Is it ok if I take photos of my own pieces and use them instead?

That would be absolutely fine with me. I was referring to the rendered parts showcased here on The Bloks Forum.
