Wow! Would love to enter this! But I feel intimidated by all the awesome entries already. So many great ideas! I guess Lego could use these as future ideas for modular sets, so it’s a win for them too.

If you want to enter, just do the best you can. Presentation is key, so take good photos (or use LDD), and LEGO always likes to see something funny or clever, so adding a bit of humor is a good idea. I do agree that LEGO designers may get some ideas from the submissions. There are some really good ones. I don’t think I have every seen so many submissions at a Rebrick contest! 😀

Yeah, they normally have one grand prize winner and a couple of runner ups. I guess they wanted to keep this contest nice and tight with only the best of the best winning. But I think they are going to have a hard time choosing! 🙄
