The January-February issue of the LEGO Club Magazine has a few pages dedicated to introducing LEGO Nexo Knights, a brand new theme from LEGO for 2016. We have discussed the sets and the story previously (see links at the end of this post), but what I wanted to bring to your attention today is that the LEGO Club Magazine is also running a fun contest in the spirit of LEGO Nexo Knights. Below are the details 🙂
Introducing the Moving Castle Building Competition! The heroes of LEGO Nexo Knights have a fully-mobile, fully-functional castle on treads for their base. How would you design your own mobile castle? Grab your LEGO bricks and build your ultimate castle. Then make it move for a chance to win the #70317 LEGO Nexo Knights The Fortrex! You can add wheels on the bottom, build special tank-treads, or even give your castle wings and a propeller… the possibilities are endless!
As you can see from the announcement, all you need to do to enter the contest is to build a moving castle. Once you are done, take a picture of your model and email it to USClubContests (at) LEGO.com. There is no age-limit to enter, however if the contestant is a minor, they would also need to send in a competition entry form signed by a parent. It can be found at the LEGO Club website under the “Parents” tab.
I think this could be a fun weekend project for the whole family, but keep in mind that all entries must be received by February 22nd, so there is only about a week left. If you want to participate, it’s time to start planning and building! While it is not a requirement to build your castle in LEGO Nexo Knights style, you might want to take a look at the current LEGO Nexo Knights sets for inspiration. You can find them under the LEGO Nexo Knights section of the Online LEGO Shop.
So what do you think? Are you inspired to enter this LEGO contest? Do you already have some ideas of what you would want to build? Feel free to share in the comment section below! 😉
