Each model must include the following
components in order to be published on MOC Shop:
- Photo(s) of your design (PNG or JPG)
- Design Title and Description
- Parts List (LXF or LDR)
- required for sale items only
All users will be able to browse, rate and review MOCs to help
sellers decide what to stock up next. When you upload a design
onto the Site, you must follow these guidelines and the Terms
of Service. If you are a registered Designer, please read
and comply with the following:
1. Designs must
be constructible - Any person will be able to actually
build your model using unforced, proper clutch connections.
2. Designs must have LEGO products only - All
designs uploaded for the possibility of sale on the Site must be
made out of genuine and existing LEGO parts (including minifigs).
Other brand products such as Mega Bloks, custom parts such as
BrickArms, and custom decals such as stickers are not yet
supported on this site.
3. Designs must be
original - Any element you include in your design must be
your own original work. If you’re submitting a design based on an
existing LEGO model, it must be your own creative work.
4. Designs must be your own - You must be the
original creator of the model submitted and you must have the
exclusive right to submit your model to BrickLink MOC Shop. This
- Your submissions are your own work and no
one else’s. The only exception to this rule is if you are the
parent or legal guardian submitting a model on behalf of your
child under 18. The same policies and guidelines apply for kids’
designs. Any model submitted by you in violation of the
foregoing may be taken down without notice.
agree not to upload images that belong to someone else as a part
of your listing, even if that person gives you permission. (If
you want someone else’s model to be available on MOC Shop,
please ask them to post it.)
- For collaborative
models, each person is recognized as a designer even though one
person (the account holder) is designated to coordinate their
team and relationship with BrickLink.
- You can
submit a model based off an idea someone else has already
submitted, as long as your work is original. For example,
multiple people can submit original designs of the same theme or
different designs of the same object. See
Intellectual Property and Copyright Basics.
If your design has been infringed upon, please submit the Notice
Regarding Claims of IP Infringement.
One submission per MOC set - Please have one listing
dedicated to one set or kit, not a series of products. While it's
possible we could consider your MOC as a starting point for a new
theme or series, any follow-up or related models should be listed
6. Design submissions must meet
criteria - Each model must include the necessary and
appropriate components in order to remain published. If it comes
to our attention that a listing does not fulfill the requirements
or is not an acceptable submission, the listing may be removed at
any time without notice. If your listing has been removed or not
approved for sale, try reevaluating your listing and submit
7. Designs must show relevant
content - Your listing may only include content relevant
to the display of that item. Each listing must accurately and
completely describe the item in an appropriate category.
8. Design submissions must be complete - Your
listings must be complete with all of the necessary files. While
you may add or edit content (until MOC gets stocked by a store),
please don't submit incomplete designs, placeholders, or try to
"reserve an idea" to pre-empt someone else. Such
listings are not allowed and will be removed.
9. Designs must abide by legal constraints - We
do not evaluate any design submission for license conflicts as
there are too many potential isues and we cannot know when a
particular model will go for sale. However, listings may be
removed at any time if legal issues arise. To avoid this, you
might want to do your own research for potential conflicts before
submitting a design.
10. Parts lists cannot be
modified - You cannot modify parts lists for MOCs that
are currently available for sale in a store(s).
reserve the right to delete without any notice any MOCs listed on
the Site that do not comply with this policy.
