We're delighted that our friends at Bricklink.com have just launched the public beta of their new MOC Shop, a platform that supports creative building by showcasing custom sets designed by the most innovative brick artists around the world.

From their press release: "With MOC Shop, BrickLink is on a mission to bring the creativity of building back to the world by means of everyday commerce. We’re providing a platform where our sellers and buyers can meet a whole new category of “designers.” We not only sell loose parts and official LEGO sets but also custom designed sets built by the most innovative brick artists around the globe."
