After what seems like an eternity LEGO have announced that the 32×32 blue baseplate will be making a comeback in 2018 – Cue the very happy face.
The 32×32 blue baseplate was suddenly retired back in 2014 to the despair of water loving MOC creators and kids wanting to create water scenes or wherever their imaginations took them! This meant that the only way to get our hands on blue baseplates for the last few years has been through resellers (bricklink, eBay etc…) and prices were starting to rise. Well looks like this didn’t go unnoticed with LEGO and they have responded by bring the blue baseplate back. The blue baseplate will join the already existing green and tan 32×32 baseplates along with the 48×48 grey baseplate.
