One cycle ends, and another begins

LEGO Ambassadors Program Cycle 7, has just finished!
I had the pleasure and the honor to take part of this Program for the last two cycles, during almost two and half years.
I came in to represent my LUG in first place, but it was always my will to enlarge my participation in the Program, to also cover another of my interests - The LEGO Technic fans community.

The Program has been adaptive and always went through several transformations, from one cycle to the next.
This time the scope of the program is being extended in a more consistent way, to include a larger number of LUGs, Online Communities and relevant LEGO Blogs, which decided to apply for the program.
From 44 Ambassadors in the previous Cycle to 70 now, the Program got a broaden coverage of LEGO Communities and fans.

Aligned with this strategy, TechnicBRICKs applied to have its own representative among the LEGO Ambassadors for the first time, and succeeded in its objective.
In our agenda we aim to have a stronger presence and dedicated voice from and towards the LEGO Technic fans Community. To promote your aspirations and return with feedback.

Our blogger Jetro de Château, is the one getting the job.

Jetro (linmix) is also an Admin/Mod and active member of the HispaLUG community, but also keep tabs on other communities like Eurobricks, PLUG, LUGNET and several others. He has a special interest in Technic and MINDSTORMS, including virtual LEGO modelling software (LDraw et. al.) and writes on all of these subjects for Hispabrick Magazine for which he’s an editor and translator/corrector. Jetro is also in MCP4 and collaborate with the LRoboticas website and blog. 

If you want to get in contact with your Ambassador, leave suggestions or ask questions, you should write to: lego.ambassador[AT]

The LEGO Ambassadors are entitled to submit suggestions towards TLG, because they signed a specific Release Form, that allows TLG to receive them.

Of course this doesn't mean that the LEGO Ambassadors will forward all the suggestions, or every single question. It'll depend on their own judgment and many answers may come from they own, based on the knowledge and experience they have on the LEGO topics.

Congratulations Jetro! I know you will be an excellent representative of the Technic community. I think having an Ambassador unique to Technic will be a very positive thing.

And now I know that if LEGO does not build something that I wanted, it must be your fault. ;-)
