Be a LEGO Creator – LEGO building contest

We recently discussed the new LEGO Creator 3-in-1 houses, which use a new modular system to offer more options for customization (see: LEGO Creator Summer Sets Review). And now, LEGO is challenging fans to create their own modules that are compatible with the houses via a new contest at ReBrick. As all contests run by LEGO, this contest is interesting and fun, and the prizes are awesome! Details below. 🙂

LEGO CREATOR CONTEST – OVERVIEW: Be a LEGO creator and add a unique module to one of these three LEGO Creator sets: #31067 LEGO Creator Modular Poolside Holiday#31068 LEGO Creator Modular Modern Home, and #31069 LEGO Creator Modular Family Villa. With these sets, LEGO Creator branched out to a new modular system, with a focus on mixing and combining the different parts and modules. What else would you add to them? Maybe an additional room? A dock? Or even another story? Enter your own special module to any of the three sets for a chance to win!

LEGO CREATOR CONTEST – HOW TO ENTER: Build a module which measures 8×8 or 8×16 studs for the #31067 LEGO Creator Modular Poolside Holiday, the #31068 LEGO Creator Modular Modern Home, or the #31069 LEGO Creator Modular Family Villa. Take up to five photos of your creation and submit them to the contest, making sure to show off all angles of your creation. Use the description field to specify which of the three sets your module belongs to. When you receive a “Success!” pop-up notification after clicking “submit” on the entry submission page, your entry has been submitted successfully. The ReBrick moderation team will review it within 1-3 working days to make sure it fits all the contest rules.

LEGO CREATOR CONTEST – RULES: In this contest, a module is defined as being an 8×8 or 8×16 stud structure. Your module should measure 8×8 or 8×16 studs in size, as these are the only entries accepted in the contest. In addition, your module should include and attached to other modules in one or all of the three sets by 1×4 plates with 2 studs connection. Modules can be placed on top of each other, side-by-side and underneath. You can build any additional room, or even an outdoor space with no frame (see pictures below for examples). You don’t need to show your module with the set it’s built for, just show how it would fit with the model. Although you can enter as many modules as you like, only show one module per entry, and keep in mind that only one entry per person will be considered when winners are selected. Use of LEGO Digital Designer is not allowed in this contest. Entrants must be at least 13 years of age at the time of entry. You can read the rest of the entry guidelines and rules here.

LEGO CREATOR CONTEST – DEADLINE: You must submit your entry by September 15th, 2017 at 10:00 AM EST. If you are not sure what time zone you are in, you can use an online time-zone converter to make sure you don’t miss the deadline.

LEGO CREATOR CONTEST – JUDGES: A panel of judges from the LEGO Creator team will select one grand prize winner and two runner ups. They will judge entries upon: overall coolness and originality – 25%, most inspired details on the module – 25%, attention to contest theme – 25%, best use of LEGO elements – 25%.

LEGO CREATOR CONTEST – PRIZES: There will be one grand prize winner who will receive the full 2017 second half LEGO Creator 3-in-1 assortment, including: #31067 LEGO Creator Modular Poolside Holiday, #31068 LEGO Creator Modular Modern Home, #31069 LEGO Creator Modular Family Villa, #31066 LEGO Creator Space Shuttle Explorer, and #31070 LEGO Creator Turbo Track Racer, along with some extra special LEGO Creator 3-in-1 swag! The two runner ups will receive the same six sets, but no special swag.

LEGO CREATOR CONTEST – ANNOUNCING WINNERS: Winners will be contacted on the email address associated with their LEGO ID account after September 22nd, 2017 and announced on ReBrick when the winners returned the signed Winner’s Certification Documents. A winner who does not return their Winner’s Certification Document within one week of receiving it will be disqualified, and a new winner will be selected.

Whether you have the LEGO Creator 3-in-1 houses already, or you just like the concept of modular houses, here is your chance to show your creativity and design your own unique module! If you don’t have the sets, you can find detailed images of all three under the LEGO Creator section of the Online LEGO Shop.

What do you think? How do you like this LEGO Creator contest? Are you planning to enter? Do you have some ideas already? And do you have any of the new LEGO Creator 3-in-1 houses? Feel free to share your thoughts and discuss in the comment section below!

Interesting contest. If I can find the time I may enter. I’m definitely curious what other people are going to build!

It probably helps to get at least one of the sets to get an idea how these sets work. Or at least look at the pictures carefully. The alternate assemblies are not always the most realistic, which makes the more playful.

That’s a good point about the alternate models not being the most realistic. And it also allows you to be more creative for the contest. 😉

Can kids enter this contest? Or is this strictly for adults?

Contestants have to be 13 or older for all ReBrick contests. There are contests for younger children through LEGO Life and some other venues. 🙂
