Builders Club logo

Builders Club (BC) was a Roblox membership split into 3 tiers that granted users extra privileges that could not be obtained by non-Builders Club (NBC) users, such as a daily Robux bonus, the ability to make shirts and pants, and more. To view the benefits of each tier, please view to "Full list of benefits" section. These benefits enabled greater customization for the user's avatar and their creativity on the platform.

Builders Club was in beta testing on April 12, 2007, and came out to the public on August 16 of the same year.[1]

Builders Club's other tiers, Turbo Builders Club (TBC), and Outrageous Builders Club (OBC) were added on June 18, 2009, and October 28, 2009, respectively. At first, OBC had its own purchase page.[2][3] That purchase page was later merged with the purchase page for the other tiers.

There were three types of Builders Club memberships that a user could have purchased: Builders Club, Turbo Builders Club, and Outrageous Builders Club. Builders Club could also be and was most commonly purchased with Roblox Credit, which is obtainable with Roblox Gift Cards. Builders Club users got a signing bonus upon purchase. This signing bonus was only eligible for users who were purchasing Builders Club for the first time. Along with that, users would get a bonus upon purchasing Robux.

All Builders Club tiers[]


In early May 2019, Roblox began to remove certain features that were exclusive to Builders Club members. On August 14, 2019, the Roblox Premium program began. On September 23, 2019, Builders Club was replaced entirely by Roblox Premium, which rolled out to all users by October 16, 2019. During the period in-between, users who did not have access to Premium yet could still use BC with its remaining benefits.[4]

Former Builders Club[]

Former Builders Club was an unofficial membership reserved for users who had previously purchased any type of Builders Club membership. Members who previously purchased Builders Club, Turbo Builders Club, or Outrageous Builders Club had the same features as a free user but were still able to keep the Welcome to the Club badge, the hard hat corresponding to the Builders Club membership they had, as well as the extra hats they were given even if they bought OBC, and the ability to stay in any groups they were in above the maximum limit of 5. (But would still be unable to join new groups unless they go back down to only being in 5 groups or buy a new Builders Club membership).


Builders Club was removed from the Roblox Platform on September 23, 2019. It was replaced with Roblox Premium, which has similar tiers and pricing but different benefits. A possible reason for the removal was confusion within the community, as the name led many to believe that only skilled builders could join.⁠[citation needed]

Welcome to The Club badge[]

The badge

The Welcome to The Club badge is a badge that was obtainable by purchasing any type of Builders Club membership at the time of its availability. It was released on October 14, 2014, along with the Official Model Maker badge. This badge also would've been obtained if a user had Builders Club prior to the badge's release. Users who previously had this badge still get to keep it, as it is a permanent Roblox badge. As of October 16, 2019, this badge is no longer obtainable as Builders Club no longer exists.

Membership badges[]

Users who purchased a Builders Club membership would receive one of the respective badges. The badges could be kept until their owner's membership has expired. To view the badges, please see the "Full list of benefits" section.

Builders Club prices[]

Builders Club prices on mobile were different from the prices on the website. Unlike the website, Builders Club purchases on the mobile app are not recurring. The mobile app had an option that the website didn't, a 3-month plan, but at the same time, it lacked an annual (yearly) plan. Prices on the mobile app were $0.05 more than the website's prices, likely due to the 30% tax Apple, Google, and Microsoft takes for purchases.⁠[citation needed]

Builders Club Monthly $5.95 £5.49
Turbo Builders Club Monthly $11.95 £10.99

Discontinued features (prior to removal)[]

Discontinued benefits[]

Over the years, many features were stripped from Builders Club, decreasing the benefits in having it. The following is a lot of (almost) all the changes Roblox has made to it:

Discontinued on other dates[]

  • On an unknown date, Builders Club beta features were completely removed. (most were removed in 2011)
  • In 2014, the ability to create Mega Places was removed.
  • In 2016, Personal Servers were removed.

Discontinued right before its removal[]

Discontinued membership plans[]

Users also used to be able to purchase a 6-month or lifetime (100 year) plan of Builders Club. This feature was removed on August 4, 2015, for an unknown reason.⁠[citation needed] After this change, users who previously bought 6 months of Builders Club kept their benefits until it expires. Users who previously bought a lifetime plan will keep their Builders Club. After Roblox Premium was fully released, all users who had lifetime Builders Club got their memberships replaced with lifetime Premium.[5][6]

Prices (USD)[]

Plan Builders Club Turbo Builders Club Outrageous Builders Club
6 Months $29.95 $44.95 $69.95
Lifetime $199.95 $299.95 $349.95


Multiple discussions within the community have occurred that debated the features a premium member has compared to a free member. Some features have sparked criticism within the Roblox community, such as members of the community believing that users who had purchased a Builders Club membership were less likely to be moderated on Roblox, though these reports cannot be theoretically proven. It has also received critique due to the assumption that online daters purchase memberships to show off their "wealth." Some community members also found the system hard to understand.

The TBC incident[]

In January 2019, Roblox accidentally changed the profile icons of BC and OBC to TBC. Users of BC and OBC suspected that their membership (either BC or OBC), out of nowhere, was upgraded/downgraded to Turbo Builders Club. This issue has outraged a lot of users who believed that their prior membership was changed to TBC. Despite that the users believed that their membership changed to the TBC, their prior membership was still highlighted, shown in the "Upgrade to Roblox Builders Club" page, and features still functioned to the prior membership. This issue has since been resolved.

  • The icon for the original Builders Club hat comes from Iconshock's Sunny Day Icons Bundle, specifically, the "labor helmet" icon.
  • From August to October 2009, the official Roblox Twitter account sent tweets about Roblox staff working on a project with the code name "Outrageous."[7][8] This was likely Outrageous Builders Club
  • Builders Club hard hats were obtainable all the way until Builders Club was completely removed, even after not being displayed on the bonuses page.
    • However, The Turbo and Outrageous Builders Club Hard Hats can still be bought as a Limited.
  • When Roblox launched its Premium Features API, there were 2 endpoints related to canceling a Builders Club membership & being refunded. If a GET request was sent to this endpoint, it would respond with how much Robux a user would receive. If a POST request was sent, it would cancel and refund the membership.
  • According to the blog post introducing Premium membership, Premium replaced Builders Club because many new Roblox users thought it was required to build things on Roblox.[9]
  • The Outrageous Builders Club Hard Hat and the Turbo Builders Club Hard Hat went limited multiple years after Builders Club was discontinued.
