To celebrate the global release of the LEGO Legacy: Heroes Unboxed role-playing game, the LEGO Ideas team is running a new challenge, titled; Replicate Your Heroic Minifigures in Battle! So, gather your favorite minifigures and prepare them for action-packed battles. In this contest, the LEGO Ideas team wants to see you create epic and or funny battles. They can be in space, 1v1 battles, or hundreds of minifigures getting involved. The more epic, the better! Prizes are great! Details below.
The contest will consist of three phases: 1.) Submission Phase – build and submit your entry before March 23rd, 2020 at 6:00 a.m. EST. 2.) Judging Phase – judges from the LEGO Games team and members of the Gameloft team review the entries and choose the winners by April 6th, 2020. 3.) Winners Announcement - the grand prize winner and two runner up winners are announced on LEGO Ideas no later than April 13th, 2020.
Here is how you can enter the contest: 1.) 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. 2.) 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. 3.) 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. 4.) Add a title and short description. 5.) Upload your entry to the contest using the blue Submit Your Entry button on the contest entry page.
The usual contest rules applies, some of the most important ones that 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 may not submit a model or any other content made by, or on behalf of, someone else. 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. You may use minifigures in your entry, but keep them generic. You must be at least 13 years of age to participate and enter. You can read the rest of the rules at the contest entry page.
Two grand prize winners will receive an incredibly exclusive trip to Billund with included flights, accommodations and activities in June of this year, and the #853967 LEGO Originals Wooden Minifigure.

If the grand prize winner is under 18 years of age, the winner will have to have an accompanying parent/guardian on the trip. The accompanying adult will also have their flight and accommodation covered.)
Two runner up winners will each receive the #10264 LEGO Creator Expert Corner Garage, #853967 LEGO Originals Wooden Minifigure, the #70677 LEGO Ninjago Land Bounty, an awesome in-game package of goodies, and a $150 spending spree at the Online LEGO Shop.
