There is a new contest on LEGO Ideas, this time celebrating the new Land Rover. Please note that you do not have to own the #42110 LEGO Technic Land Rover to participate in this contest. You can use LEGO Digital Designer, or just build your own Land Rover of any size. The details of the contest are below. đŸ™‚

Here is the overview of the contest: About as reliable as the sun rising in the East and setting in the West, the Land Rover is capable of great things, and a staple 4X4 which can be used for many different purposes in your daily life. In this contest, the LEGO Ideas team is asking you to show what good deeds you would use a Land Rover for. Helping pull a car through the snow? A rescue operation in the Arctic? They want to see what heroic moment you could imagine, in LEGO form.

The contest will consist of 3 phases: 1.) Submission Phase – build and submit your entry before November 27th, 2019 at 6:00 a.m. EST, 2.) Judging Phase – a panel of judges consisting of members of the LEGO Technic team and Jaguar Land Rover review the entries and choose the winners by December 11th, 2019, and 3.) Winners Announcement – the grand prize winner and two runner up winners will be announced at LEGO Ideas no later than December 18th , 2019.

Here is how to enter the contest: Submissions may be in either physical bricks or by using a digital building tool such as LEGO Digital Designer. You’re welcome to use image editing tools, such as Photoshop, to enhance your photos/presentation. Take up to five photos of your creation and submit them to the contest. Make sure to show off all angles and any features or functions of your creation. Submit your photos in as high a resolution as possible so that the judges can see all the details clearly. If possible, the shortest edge should be at least 1080 pixels. Add a title and short description. Upload your entry to the contest using the blue Submit Your Entry button on this page.

And here are some of the most important contest rules: You must be the original creator of all creative work you submit (the model, images, photographs, description text, etc.) and you must have the exclusive right to submit your model to this LEGO Ideas contest. You are allowed to use any official LEGO element (LEGO System, LEGO DUPLO, LEGO TECHNIC/Constraction) in your entry. The LEGO elements must be genuine (not cut, glued, or otherwise modified). Entries should not contain copies or references to any other existing third-party work or creation or infringements of any third-party intellectual property right such as Ford or Bugatti. The only intellectual property that your creation may be linked to for this contest is Land Rover. You may use minifigures in your entry. (Only use generic minifigures that do not use any third party intellectual property.) You must be at least 13 years of age to participate and enter. There are other rules and fine print as well, which you can read at the contest entry page.

One grand prize winner will receive the following: exclusive Land Rover merchandise, #42110 LEGO Technic Land Rover Defender, #42097 LEGO Technic Compact Crawler Crane, #42088 LEGO Technic Cherry Picker, #40220 LEGO Creator 40220 London Bus, and a LEGO Ideas tote bag. Two runner up winners will each receive the following:  exclusive Land Rover merchandise, #42110 LEGO Technic Land Rover Defender, #40220 LEGO Creator 40220 London Bus, and a LEGO Ideas tote bag.

This contest is a great opportunity to showcase your creativity and building skills. I also like that there are no hard and fast rules as far as size and content, so you can go with the contest topic in pretty much any way you like. If you need some inspiration, you can check out additional pictures and videos of the #42110 LEGO Technic Land Rover Defender at the LEGO Technic section of the Online LEGO Shop.

So I’m confused. What are we supposed to be building now?

How I’m reading it is that you build a defender and put it in a situation where it does some type of rescue work. Or something like that. The defender doesn’t have to be the set. It could be a smaller one, a different color, etc. And you can also build digitally. Look at the current uploads and you will see what people are building.

Yes, that’s my understanding as well.

I’m not impressed with any of the entries yet. I think the rules are not clear enough. Can the Land Rover be in a real environment? Or does it have to be brick built? I see at least one entry that interpreted it as a real environment.

I interpret the rules that you can do either. They are looking for creativity. Not stifling competitors by too many rules is a good thing.

I’d personally just like to have a Speed Champions scale model of the Land Rover and skip the contest since I lack the parts and the skills to make one that looks like an official Lego model.

There are actually a couple of really good ones already amongst the contest entries. I don’t know if it would be possible to actually build them as they are both digital models, and the parts may or may not be available in olive-green. But check them out, I think they look good! đŸ™‚
