You might remember the LEGO building contest over at Eurobricks titled Turtle Insanity! Turtle Building Contest that we talked about a few months ago (see: LEGO Exo Suit – All About the Turtle). The contest was inspired by the turtle in the #21109 LEGO Ideas Exo Suit set, and the winners were just announced a few days ago. I highly recommend that you check out all the entries as they are very creative and lots of fun! 🙂
For the contest all you had to do was build a LEGO turtle based on any non-licensed LEGO theme. The judges for this contest were no other than Peter Reid – the original creator of the LEGO Exo Suit, Mark Stafford – the LEGO Designer who created the final model, and Karen Frost Sørensen – Project Manager of LEGO Ideas. So yeah, the bar was set high! Winners of the contest received a signed copy of the LEGO Exo Suit set, and some of the models were also included on a poster produced by LEGO to commemorate the event. Check it out below!
Cute, isn’t it? Copies are sent to all contest participants whose turtle appears on the poster, and it will also be handed out at the Fan Weekend in Skærbæk, Denmark to registered visitors. This is one of those very rare and exclusive LEGO posters that collectors would love to have! I would keep an eye out for them on eBay: LEGO POSTERS ON EBAY
I really like the first-place winner of the contest; a turtle in the form of the original and iconic wooden LEGO toys! Such a brilliant and well-executed idea! And I was sure that the second place winner with the turtle skeleton will be one of the finalists! It is so sad, yet so fun! What about you? Did you participate in the contest? How do you like the entries and the winners? Feel free to share and discuss in the comment section below! 😉
