When BrickLink Met Hogwarts.

Welcome, Alice Finch!

by Hendrik Ghys | 2013-11-11 EST

Dear BrickLink Community.

We are pleased to introduce the brand new NEWS section of BrickLink. From now on, this section will be used to publish all news regarding BrickLink.

As good things never come alone, we are also very excited to announce that Alice Finch, the famous builder of the Hogwarts Castle among others, will be joining the BrickLink team as Chief Communications officer. She will be in charge of communicating with the whole community on a broad range of issues.

Alice Finch



Alice is famous in the AFOL community and beyond for building a minifig-scale rendition of Hogwarts Castle from J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series of books and which has been acclaimed as one of the largest and most detailed Lego structures built by a single person.

It was a desperate need for a yellow crane bucket for her son that led Alice Finch to BrickLink back in 2007. Once she found BrickLink, she began acquiring parts to build a castle she had in mind. Since displaying her first model in 2010 she has developed a fondness for building realistic architecture.

You can read more about her extraordinary adventure in this interview with The Brothers Brick.[http://www.brothers-brick.com/2013/02/26/alice-finch-builds-massive-lego-hogwarts-from-400000-bricks/]

We hope that you will be as excited as we are to have such an important figure of the AFOL community take a more active role within BrickLink.

Welcome, Alice!


Sincerely,
The BrickLink team

Alice Finch and Her Great Masterpiece : Hogwarts Castle
