The recently released #41597 LEGO BrickHeadz Go Brick Me customizer set is all about making your own brick-built selfie in LEGO BrickHeadz style (read our review of the set here: LEGO BrickHeadz Go Brick Me Review), following the same idea, LEGO is running a new contest for teen and adult LEGO fans with the challenge of transforming themselves into LEGO BrickHeadz. Below are the details. 🙂

LEGO BRICKHEADZ CONTEST – OVERVIEW: What would you look like as a LEGO BrickHeadz? Here’s your chance to put your personality and style into bricks! Create a LEGO BrickHeadz selfie representing yourself and your interests and you could win the ultimate LEGO BrickHeadz prize package and a shopping spree!

LEGO BRICKHEADZ CONTEST – HOW TO ENTER: Create a LEGO BrickHeadz version of yourself using the #41597 LEGO BrickHeadz Go Brick Me set as inspiration. Take up to five photos of your entry and submit them to the contest. Use the description field to tell us about your entry to – then hit “submit”. 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 days (excluding weekends and holidays) to make sure it fits all the contest rules.

LEGO BRICKHEADZ CONTEST – RULES: Your entry must include a LEGO BrickHeadz, however you can change the design somewhat to fit your personality, and you can also add a background and other details. You can use parts from other LEGO BrickHeadz sets, but please avoid printed parts or exclusive accessories from third party IP LEGO BrickHeadz sets. Please do not include pictures of yourself with your entry. Your LEGO BrickHeadz doesn’t need to look exactly like you, you can be creative to represent yourself. Use of LEGO Digital Designer to create your entry is allowed, along with photo editing software or adding effects to your entry. Entries must not contain LEGO elements which have been modified from their original form, including painted or cut elements. 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 BRICKHEADZ CONTEST – DEADLINE: You must submit your entry by May 8th, 2018 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 BRICKHEADZ CONTEST – JUDGES: A panel of judges from the LEGO BrickHeadz team will select one grand prize winner and two runner up winners. They will judge entries upon: overall coolness and originality – 25%, most inspired details – 25%, relevance to contest theme – 25%, best use of LEGO elements – 25%. In addition, one other bonus prize winner will be selected at random (see the prizes section for further details).

LEGO BRICKHEADZ CONTEST – PRIZES: There will be one grand prize winner, who will receive the following: #41598 LEGO BRICKHEADZ The Flash, #41599 LEGO BrickHeadz Wonder Woman, #41600 LEGO BrickHeadz Aquaman, #41601 LEGO BrickHeadz Cyborg, #41602 LEGO BrickHeadz Rey, #41603 LEGo BrickHeadz Kylo Ren, #41604 LEGO BrickHeadz Iron Man, #41605 LEGO BrickHeadz Thanos, #41606 LEGO BrickHeadz Star-Lord, #41607 LEGO BrickHeadz Gamora, #41608 LEGO BrickHeadz Han Solo, #41609 LEGO BrickHeadz Chewbacca, #41597 LEGO BrickHeadz Go Brick Me, 23 additional LEGO BrickHeadz sets to be sent once they’re released later this year (which includes 12 retailer exclusive LEGO BrickHeadz), plus $200 USD shopping spree at Shop.LEGO.com, and a winner certificate. The two runner up winners will receive the same currently available sets, 11 additional LEGO BrickHeadz sets that will be released later this year, and a winner certificate. The bonus prize winner selected at random will receive the same as the two runner up winners, minus the winner certificate.

BRICKHEADZ CONTEST – WINNERS ANNOUNCEMENT: Winners will be contacted on the email address associated with their LEGO ID account after May 23rd, 2018 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 (5 days) of receiving it will be disqualified, and a new winner will be selected.

This looks like a fun contest, especially if you have been playing around with the LEGO BrickHeadz building techniques. And, even if you never built LEGO BrickHeadz before, this is a good time to start out and give yourself an interesting challenge. Please note that you don’t have to own any LEGO BrickHeadz sets to enter the contest. You can just use your own LEGO pieces to build in LEGO BrickHeadz style, or even use LEGO Digital Designer. It’s a good idea, however, to download instructions for some of the LEGO BrickHeadz sets, so you get an idea how they are built. And, you can also look for inspirations amongst the currently available sets under the LEGO BrickHeadz section of the Online LEGO Shop.

What do you think? How do you like this LEGO BrickHeadz brick selfie contest? Are you planning to enter? Have you been collecting and building the LEGO BrickHeadz sets? And, did you try out the LEGO BrickHeadz Go Brick Me customizer set yet? Feel free to share your thoughts and discuss in the comment section below! 😉

Oh, lol! This looks fun! It’s going to be hard to judge though, isn’t it?

While it may seem like that, check the current entries. There are some very creative ones.

I think the deadline is a little short considering the set just recently came out. Nonetheless, great contest, and I look forward to seeing all the submissions.

Woa, some of the entries are really good. I might have to enter this one. But what if you don’t have any of the printed eyes?

I figured you could make your own by drawing on a black tile, although that might constitute “painted or cut elements”. Since photo editing software appears to be allowed, I’d assume the squares could be added in Photoshop, as well.

(It could depend on your artistic skills, however…)

I believe LDD entries are allowed so that is one way to get around not having the parts.

Otherwise, they’re apparently relatively cheap and common on Bricklink. (Not available from Bricks and Pieces, alas.)

Man, this contest is cool!

It already made me go out and get a copy of the Go Brick Me set.

The weird thing is how subjective this contest is since they don’t want pics of fans, for obvious reasons, but recreating a selfie is a little misleading.

It would be more accurate to say it is your avatar.

All the rage is about selfies these days, so I guess LEGO just wanted to sound trendy. I agree though that an avatar contest would have been better. It seems that contestants interpreted it both ways, so I guess both avatars and selfies are good to go. 🙂

There was also a line in either the rules or guidelines that said that you could be creative, it didn’t have to be too exact. I’d go for a cool Brickheadz over one that looked exactly like me for an entry that would be likely to do better (not that a Brickheadz that looked exactly like me wouldn’t be cool! 😉 ). I think they expect people to take the avatar approach in some cases and those entries will probably not have any disadvantage in the judging.

I was already planning on getting the Go Brick Me set, but this is another good reason to pick it up!
