What makes a set "brickmaster" and where do you find them. I thought it had something to do with the books that include small sets but it also looks like there are lots of just polybag sets with no books that are also considered brickmaster and was just curious what it meant. I recently picked up a 40025 gator as an add on to some parts I was buying from a guy on bricklink because I thought it was neat and the brickmaster printed on the bag made me start searching it but couldn't really find anything. Thanks!

    Brickmaster was the predecessor to the Master Builder Academy. Your yearly subscription included a new LEGO set every other month.

    Oh, thanks I had no idea! I wish they still did that, I like those polybags better.

    Brickmaster never came to Canada and now MBA is still not in Canada yet.

    Is there a way to look up all the brickmaster sets, it doesn't seem to be a category in the sets listing.

    There are also books with bricks with the same name (Atlantis etc) but are not related.

    I like the books for teaching kids to build models. They show how the same set of parts can be used to build very different models. It gets kids into the idea that a Lego set is not just a single toy, but a building toy.

    Some of the sets are labelled BrickMaster in the database, but most only have the word in the set notes, so searching for 'brickmaster' doesn't yield the required results. The advanced query builder will solve this, but for now you can see them all here

    "Brickmaster", now there's a word to strike fear into the heart of any non-US based polybag collector! Yea shall not be missed by me Brickmaster, may you never return ;-)

    Baah! Brickmaster sets were pretty cool, decent sized polybag kits with detail...

    I finally ended up with most of them via polybag trading and have built them and they are much better than your average polybag kit.

    Apologizes to @drdavewatford of course, for whom Brickmaster probably causes nightmares... ;)

    ^ Thanks to a few splendid fellows on these forums I eventually managed to get hold of the Star Wars and Indy Brickmaster polys so the nightmares have now stopped, although the nervous tic has persisted....
