LEGO fan-site Toys-N-Bricks is back with another great LEGO contest; their annual Microbuild LEGO Tournament! This is a really fun contest I won last year with my Mini Taj Mahal entry.
THE RULES: Your entry must be a new modular building designed by you; it cannot be an official modular building (for example; it cannot be a mini modular based on LEGO Modular Fire Brigade, Pet Shop, Town Hall, etc). Entries must be completely new (you cannot use it in another LEGO contest, event, etc.). Entries must be built with LEGO pieces (no LDD, custom brands, stickers, other objects used).
I also got some clarification by Toys-N-Bricks moderators that your mini modular should fit with the LEGO Mini Modular set. So I would say it comes real handy if you already own the LEGO mini modulars. If not, you can check out the details and see pictures of the LEGO mini modulars here, and download the PDF building-instructions here: Mini Modulars – Instruction Book 1, Mini Modulars – Instruction Book 2. These should help you in the designing process of your own mini modular contest entry.
THE PRIZES: The Grand Prize winner of this LEGO contest will receive a brand-new copy of the highly anticipated LEGO exclusive #10224 LEGO Modular Town Hall set. The Second Place Winner will receive a brand-new copy of the #8638 LEGO Cars Spy Jet Escape (no box) set along with 3 mini-sets: #7566 LEGO City Farmer, #30053 LEGO Star Wars Republic Cruiser and #30070 LEGO Toy Story Alien Spaceship. Sweet, huh?
THE DEADLINE: Contest ends on April 15 at 21:00 PST (April 16 – 0:00 EST). You get 2 months to design and build your creation.
THE DETAILS: Check out the LEGO contest details, eligibility, and how to submit your entry here: Toys-N-Bricks Microbuild LEGO Tournament.
I highly recommend entering this LEGO contest for both the experienced builder as well as the beginner. It is a great way to get your feet wet and get some experience with entering LEGO contests, as you don’t have to build something huge, extensive and expensive. And, you may even win some amazing prizes! I would also recommend checking out our tips and tricks on winning a LEGO contest: Tips for Winning a LEGO Contest
I’m definitely planning to enter this LEGO contest again, and already have over 10 ideas! How about you? Are you planning to enter? Let me know in the comment section below!
