A Comprehensive List of LEGO Certified Professional Sets?

MorkManMorkMan Phoenix, Arizona, USAMember Posts: 853

I've been reading through ebay today and have come across a couple of sets that are LEGO Certified Professional, but I can't find a listing for them here in Brickset. Is there a list of the sets like the LEGO Hilton Paris Opera Hotel or this Ricky the Rooster?

    They aren't listed because they are not official sets. LCPs have produced hundreds over the years for various clients so there's no way to collate a definitive list, in any case.

    Is it possible to maintain a list of LCPs themselves?  I am trying to collect the Cathedral sets put out by Bright Bricks in the UK, and I know they also did some fabulous marine life sets recently (and, to the everlasting credit of either BB or their client, instructions for those sets were online for a while). I know trying to keep up with LCP-designed sets is virtually impossible but it would be nice to have starting points for an internet search!

    @sklamb Lego.com maintains a site that show the current list of LCP's:

    http://www.lego.com/en-us/aboutus/lego-group/programs-and-visits/lego-certified-professionals

    @Huw Sounds like a new challenge... :)

    I'd write them a mail to ask them, if you don't know where to start, there's someone at Reddit who works for one. If you can find the thread just say so and i'll give it a search, run into it some time ago.

    @bobabricks They have some interesting things for sale.
  • MorkManMorkMan Phoenix, Arizona, USAMember Posts: 853
    I've begun compiling a list of sets, part count, etc. and pictures. If that's of interest or if some blanks can be filled in, I'd be grateful.

    Minifigpriceguide thinks he has compiled a complete list of these sets, but I'm not seeing that Ricky Rooster set on there.

    Don't forget that these are generally commissions - some might be used for corporate gifts etc, never made public and purchased with a privacy agreement - theoretically it'd be great to see a complete list of LCP sets, realistically I don't think I'd ever trust any such list to be complete

    Where did you find information on this Ricky The Rooster Set?
  • HuwHuw Brickset Towers, Hampshire, UKAdministrator Posts: 6,388
    Ricky the Rooster isn't an LCP set. He was given to those displaying at the inaugural Fan Weekend in Portugal in June. I have one and it is indeed very cool.

    Also, is it an official Lego set?

    I would appreciate the directions to Ricky the Rooster if someone can share them! I have many Portuguese friends who would appreciate this model! Thank you in advance!

    @TheOriginalSimonB The words 'insert', 'oil' and 'dong' should never, repeat NEVER, be used in the same sentence. EVER!

    Edit: unless you're into that stuff, in which case, go for it! What two consenting adults get up to behind closed doors is their business.

    That Dong set doesn't even make sense... Seems like a mishmash from a toy bin and a Dong sticker stuck on there. Why does oil tycoon Luke sky walker have spring loaded legs??

    this brings up a new question, do you need to have spring loaded oil tycoon Luke Skywalker to complete your starwars minifig collection? And is there a non-spring loaded version of oil tycoon Luke Skywalker I should be worried about? Is there a fleshy spring loaded oil tycoon Luke Skywalker? What about a fleshy non-spring loaded oil tycoon Luke Skywalker????

    oh yeah and I thought the Ramboll set was an official set, it is on BrickLink...

    Ha ha! Imagine explaining owning that to your other half because "it has to be part of your LEGO related collection"

    Here is another.  It looks like a small version first and a larger version will be coming shortly.  This one is in the church store for 35 pounds still. http://minifigpriceguide.com/wordpress/lego-certified-professional-limited-edition-st-edmundsbury-cathedral-lego-bricks-kit/

    The Dong oil rig seems ok for parts a builder had on hand; a specially made set should look more polished.
  • MorkManMorkMan Phoenix, Arizona, USAMember Posts: 853
    Guys - sorry I lost my whole listing of these sets. They were on my work computer and I was laid off without notice. Poof - my whole LEGO folder (amongst many other things like 30GB of music files) was instantly taken from me. Sad. Very sad.

    Just by chance I was passing on the day they got them. Apparently there will be 3 versions, small (as above £35),in stock now. Large (£100 to £150) not released as yet, and a currently unknown set of something to do with the cathedral... 
    The staff are very helpful and I have asked for them to reserve the large one. If anyone is interested I'll update when it's in stock.

    Does anyone know if Exeter Cathedral ever released its larger model, which was supposed to include some of the outbuildings?

    I would love to purchase currently available versions of the Exeter and Bury Cathedral builds (preferably not the very smallest version, which in the case of Exeter is already sold out anyway) without having to go through eBay--is anyone on Brickset able to help with this? I'm aware shipping and handling charges add considerably to the retail total, but I'm not happy having to pay many times the original cost *before* shipping on a second-hand set of something which is meant to be a benefit fundraiser for the Cathedral. I have a good reputation here, on BrickLink and at eBay (my userID is the same for all three).

  • LegobusfanLegobusfan Hampshire Member Posts: 15
    The second Exeter Cathedral came out last week. I've one up on eBay if you want to see it. I don't generally resell but I'm selling one to pay for my trip to Exeter to get mine as Exeter will not post out. There should be a third model at some stage as well, presumably once the second has sold.

    Bright Bricks now number their sets which should make compiling a list slightly easier as gaps would be obvious.

    Tyne Bridge was no. 26
    Chester Cathedral no. 27
    Medium Exeter Cathedral is 55.

    There have also been two sets of WWT animals. In the second set there is
    Suki The Spoon Billed Sandpipper - no. 37
    Warden's 4x4 - no. 39
    Bruce the Red Breasted Goose - no. 38
    Natalie the Nene
    Katie the Kingfisher

    All but Katie were available at WWT site Slimbridge a few weeks ago. However I believe they are only on sale where the giant Lego models are on display and they finished on 10th November.

    Bright Bricks also do models for make and take events. To be really comprehensive these should be included as well. I've a frog and fly from WWT and an Icthyosaur from Milestones 2014

    ^You have the instructions available to scan by chance?
  • sklambsklamb speaker of American EnglishMember Posts: 478
    St Edmondsbury Cathedral large model is showing up on eBay UK already, and is (per their website) going to be available for direct order from the Cathedral very soon. It looks very handsome, though larger-scale than the middle-sized models I've obtained for the other three cathedral builds. They also hope to get another batch of the small model to sell during December. I wonder which cathedral will be next? I'd love to have a set for York Minster, or Wells, or Winchester.... As a fan of building buildings out of Lego, I'm quite excited about this series!

    Instructions weren't handed out, you had to build it at the show. But they then released them a couple of days later after loads of requests.
