Promos and Prototypes - Daniel Goerner - 2012-05-26

I just wanted to know if we're allowed to do promo and prototype parts to be released in the official library. While I'm pretty sure that the answer is yes regarding the promos, I'm not so sure about the (Lego offocial) prototypes.

Here are a few examples of what I mean:

Promos:
The white Boba Fett

Since no one seems to care I submitted the torso for the white Boba Fett....

Cool! I say that ot it's an part produced by LEGO than it's fair game for the library.


Re: Promos and Prototypes - Daniel Goerner - 2012-06-01

So, the prototypes would be okay, too, or did I misunderstand you there?


Re: Promos and Prototypes - Orion Pobursky - 2012-06-01

I don't speak in any official capacity but I'm fine with prototypes. They're LEGO produced parts.


Re: Promos and Prototypes - Chris Dee - 2012-06-02

I agree. If it is produced by LEGO we can include it the LDraw library.


Re: Promos and Prototypes - Steffen - 2012-06-04

I also agree

I'll hijack my own thread from over 6 years ago to add another question: What about parts from videogames? I fell in love with the rocketship from Lego Worlds, "PUG-Z". I wanted to build it in reallife, so I started reverse engineering it in LDraw to know what parts are needed, only to realize that a lot of parts aren't available in the right colors. So I decided to rebuild it virtually in every detail. Which meant to learn how to draw patterns again, because I forgot everything about that. Two parts are not done yet, but here are the ones I have finished.

If you cannot buy it I'd say no.

That's what I thought, but I had to ask at least.
