First and foremost we want to extend a sincere Thank You to each and every one of you, our customers, fans, partners & team members for your support throughout the year.
This year we have launched more new models, shipped to more countries, packed more parcels, worked with more designers and created more new partnerships than ever before. Not to mention our team has doubled since last year!
This wouldn't have been possible without your passion, your involvement and your support.
Thank you and we look forward to exceeding all of your expectations next year!
After 5 years of manufacturing, testing & plating we launched the world's first ever fully chromed out model and in December 2022 we've released our second, the Remote Controlled Italiana.
Sparked by a new collaboration with 0rig0 (a space model designer) we were able to release a full Space Collection which has been featured in tens of different publications worldwide. A massive thank you to 0rig0 for your amazing designs and continuous support!
The Initial D AE86 was a standout in our collection with stellar reviews all around. We've just released a new version with a new popup headlight mechanism and drivetrain.
It sold out twice during the year, once within 24h of making a few hundred units available. We promise we're working on bringing more by mid-March, click below to join the waitlist below and you'll be the first to find out when it's back.
We've wanted to release a 1:8 scale R34 for years and in 2022 we made our dream come true. This was by far our most popular 1:8 scale release of the year based on how many fans brought it to life in their own hands.
This year we've continued our work with helping schools and educational programs get access to affordable, tailor made block models to help teach engineering to young children worldwide. This is a project that continues to be close to our hearts.
A special thank you to Zach, you started it all for us!
We always love sharing our models face to face with our fans at events, so we try to make it to as many as we can! This year we made many new friends through events like the Ozark Euro Rally and reached many fans through groups like Audi Club NA & more.
If you put them all end to end it would be enough to loop around the world. Twice.
We pride ourselves in having the world's largest collection of unique models and it's clear that this year we didn't disappoint.
Our models have reached the hands of customers in almost 30% of the world's countries this year - almost double that of 2021. The newest addition to the list was Bulgaria in December 2022!
Thanks to everyone who followed us on our journey this year we've more than doubled The Block Zone's fanclub!
Jokes aside though, we're extremely humbled to see how far we've come on this journey together alongside you and 120,000 other fans worldwide.
And that's not all. Every picture we post on our Facebook & Instagram pages also comes from our customers. We love seeing your builds come to life and we always want to share them with the world, so email your newest creations over so we can get you featured!
Thank you for the support, for the likes, for the emails, for the Facebook messages, for the pictures, for the videos, for everything. At the end of the day this is a true passion for us, we love sharing it with the world and we get really excited when we hear from you and see your own builds come to life!
Just to say that this pic is one of our favourite customer submissions and we added this extra slide just to be able to include it in our 2022 wrap up!
