World Design by Me Closing World

From LEGO: The LEGO Group is closing that part of the Design byMe customization service that allows consumers to order digital models in real bricks.

The LEGO Group will be accepting orders until January 16, 2012.

Consumers will still be able to design what they want with LEGO Digital Designer and upload models into a public gallery as before. All existing models will be transferred to a new gallery on the LDD website. Consumers will also be able to download the instructions generated from LEGO Digital Designer.

The HERO Recon Team Hero Creator will be unchanged and consumers will still be able to build and buy their own customized Hero. Bricks can be bought separately, using the Pick a Brick service:

http://shop.lego.com/en-US/Pick-A-Brick-ByTheme.

This is not the end of customization for the LEGO Group, but a revision. The LEGO Group believes in the future of customization, but the service offered has to be right for the consumers and Design byME has proven to be too complex for children.

The original Design byMe vision was for a unique customization service, where consumers could design whatever they imagined, display it and get the model sent to in their own LEGO box. Design byMe as a concept attracts several million people each year to build a huge range of amazing creations using the LEGO Digital Designer (LDD) software.

Over the years, The LEGO Group has also added other simpler customized building experiences like Hero Recon Team. However, the overall Design byMe experience has struggled to live up to the quality standards for a LEGO service.

The feedback from Design byMe users has taught the LEGO Group that a rebuild of the entire setup of Design byMe would be necessary to better the experience, and this would only make the service too expensive.
