LEGO likes to keep their fans entertained and challenged with new contests every month! You can read about the other currently running contests at the end of this post, and today we will discuss the most recently announced contest at LEGO’s ReBrick website: LEGO Ninjago Continue The Chase. Details of the contest are below. 🙂

At the beginning of the year, LEGO posted a stop-motion video on their YouTube channel, titled, Chasing the Mask of Vengeance (watch below). In the video, the ninja team has to use their ninja racing skills to keep the Sons of Garmadon from getting the Oni Mask of Vengeance. As Kai, Lloyd, Zane, and Samurai X are fighting the badguys over the mask, the video abruptly ends as the chase scene approaches a fork in the road, with the text appearing: CONTINUE THE CHASE. And that’s what this contest is about; LEGO would like to know how you would end the Chasing the Mask of Vengeance video by creating your own brickfilm.

LEGO NINJAGO THE CHASE CONTEST – OVERVIEW: Create your own brickfilm version of the thrilling conclusion of the Chasing the Mask of Vengeance! How would you end the video? What crazy, unexpected turns will you have the story take? What sort of funny thing will happen to the ninja? What kind of stunts will they pull? What sort of fight scene will they have? You decide! Create a brickfilm using Ninjago characters to end the video. If you don’t have the exact characters or pieces, just re-create them the best you can to tell your story, and share your thrilling conclusion in this contest! (Below, I’m including both the Chasing of the Mask of Vengeance brickfilm, as well as a second video with some behind-the-scenes tidbits on how the video was made. It could be very helpful in creating your own stop-motion-video for the contest.)

This is yet another fun contest to challenge teen and adult LEGO fans! If you like the LEGO Ninjago story, and brickfilming, this is your chance to write, play out, and film a little part of the story. How cool is that? If you are not familiar with the recently released LEGO Ninjago sets, I recommend you check them out. They will give you an idea of the characters, vehicles, and locations of the new season of the story. You can find them under the LEGO Ninjago section of the Online LEGO Shop.

Hmm, those bikes look a bit like the Tron bikes that were discussed earlier.

How about the destiny’s bounty waiting under the road and the ninja get away grabbing the mask at the last second?
