LEGO BIONICLE is the epic story about six elemental heroes questing for the Gold Masks of Power to save the people of their lands from evil beings. The newly released LEGO BIONICLE sets include regular versions of the masks, as well gold versions made of plastic, to indicate the empowered heroes. Since the masks are so important in the LEGO BIONICLE saga, what about making real gold masks? And that’s exactly what LEGO did! 🙂
A few days ago there was an interesting video posted on the LEGO BIONICLE Facebook Page, about the making of six real 14 karat versions Gold Masks for the LEGO BIONICLE heroes. At that time it was also hinted that BIONICLE fans will be able to win these super awesome and unique masks. You can watch the making of the masks video below:
Interesting, isn’t it? A couple of days after this video was released, the details on how you can win these gorgeous masks were revealed. Here is the official announcement: “Let the LEGO BIONICLE Mask Hunt begin! It’s easy, fun, and the whole family can join! Look for masks hidden in objects around you and upload the pictures to Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram using the hashtag #BionicleMaskHunt. Every week, for the next 6 weeks a LEGO Jury will draw weekly winners and reward a LEGO BIONICLE prize to the best image in each of the 6 BIONICLE Mask categories: Water, Stone, Jungle, Ice, Fire, and Earth. Amongst the weekly winners, the final winners of the six unique 14 karat LEGO Bionicle Gold Masks will be selected! So grab your phone and use your imagination! We can’t wait to see your creative images!” See video below for more information:
As you can see in the video, to participate in the LEGO BIONICLE Mask Hunt, you basically just have to find an object around you that looks like a hidden mask. It can be any object, as long as in some way it gives the impression of a face or mask. Then you take a picture and share it with the LEGO BIONICLE team on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram using the hastag #BionicleMaskHunt! Please note that there is no limitation of the amount of different images an individual person can enter. I would strongly recommend though that you take good quality and well composed pictures, as winners are chosen based on the images submitted. So don’t rush this, if you want to win – especially if you want to win a Gold Mask!
The LEGO BIONICLE Mask Hunt runs from the 30th March 2015 to 10th May, 2015. Six winners of the week will be chosen among the entries received between March 30 – April 5, April 6 – April 12, April 13 – April 19., April 20 – April, April 27 – May 3, and May 4 – May 10.

The overall winners will be chosen among the 36 weekly winners of the week that submitted their entries between March 30 and May 10.
