When customers now make bulk order purchases however, Lego will not ask customers on what they are using the bricks for, the Danish toymaker announced late Tuesday. Lego did not refer directly to Ai's order in its announcement.
As of the start of 2016, the group will no longer inquire about the "thematic purpose", but rather ask customers to make it clear that Lego doesn't endorse or support particular projects, if their toy products are used publicly, including exhibitions.
While Ai mostly retweeted fans' joy following the announcement, he did appear to comment on one Twitter post, saying "nice move #freedomofexpression".
Ai also posted pictures on Instagram, including one with a boy attaching bricks onto the artist's face and hair, captioned with a smiling emoji symbol.
