Like the collectible minifigures? Would you like to win some from the recent series (LEGO Minifigures Series 5)? Well, here is a nice little LEGO contest just for you! 😛
Eurobricks started the tradition of running a sweet little contest for each series of the collectible minifigures. These have been highly anticipated and really fun contests, so if you missed out before you might want to give it a try this time! 😉
➡ THE CHALLENGE: There are two categories to choose from:
- Category A – Build a Vignette – Build an 8×8 vignette from any theme where you could display any of the 16 new Collectible Minifigures Series 5. It can be Town, Medieval or even Space. As long you are able to relate the chosen theme and minifigures to your audience, then you are on the right track.
- Category B – Build a Movie Scene– Build an 16×16 vignette from any known selected movie theme where you could display an actual interacting movie scene of your selected minifigure from the LEGO Collectible Minifigures Series 5 and any selected existing minifigures from the LEGO Collectible Minifigures Series 1 to 4.
➡ THE DEADLINE: November 14th, so you have a whole month to come up with something!
➡ THE PRIZES: In both Category A and Category B the 1st place winner will receive 6 minifigs from Collectible Minifigs Series 5, the 2nd place winner will receive 4 minifigs, the 3rd place winner 3 minifigs, the 4th place winner 2 minifigs, and the 5th place winner 1 minifig. (The 1st place winner chooses whichever 6 they want from the series, then the 2nd place winner will choose from the remaining, etc.)
➡ THE RULES: There is a whole set of rules for both Category A and Category B – I won’t need to repeat here – that will make it clearer of what can and cannot be entered. See here: Collectible Minifigs Contest Rules.

And here is a list of other LEGO contests going on right now:
I was just working on something for this last night. I like that EB gives you plenty of time to build.
Nice! I’m glad you are getting the hang of it with these contest! They really accelerate your building skills really fast! 🙂
I’ve been hearing a lot about eurobricks but I don’t really know what it is. Could you possibly do a post about it, maybe doing a pros and cons list? Or have you already?
Quad, you bring up a really good point. I should write a post about the most popular and largest LEGO websites. I put it on my list of posts to write. 😉
In the meantime, I can say that Eurobricks is one of the largest and oldest website for LEGO fans, with over 18,000 members. It is in the form of a Forum, where LEGO fans can share pretty much anything related to the LEGO hobby (news, events, LEGO themes, special interests, building techniques, customization, etc.). They also have moderators who keep things tidy and organized. It is a massive site with all kinds of topics, so it is easy to get lost. If you are interested to check it out, start here: Eurobricks Forum Index. This gives you a good idea of what topics LEGO fans are talking about. Start with the topics you are interested in, and see how you like the community. I think you will! Hope this helps some. Any other questions just let me know. 😉
