As you may remember from our previous discussions, LEGO re-launched their ReBrick website, solely focusing on LEGO contests for teen and adult LEGO fans. So far there has been some really interesting contests with great prizes, and the LEGO Friends and LEGO BIONICLE contests are still open (see links at the end of this post), and now there is also a LEGO Creator contest added to the list of events where you can test out your building skills. Details below. 🙂
➡ LEGO CREATOR CONTEST – DESCRIPTION: Be a LEGO creator and build something extra to the #31051 LEGO Creator Lighthouse Point! The set is made up of different modules which can easily and creatively be rearranged. For this contest, LEGO would like you to add your own module to the set. It could be a bridge, a pier, a houseboat, a plane, or something completely unexpected. It’s up to you! Build your own module and use the LEGO Creator app turn-around video function to showcase its features! If you don’t own the set already, that’s okay too – you can gather inspiration from pictures and the designer-video below.
➡ LEGO CREATOR CONTEST – HOW TO ENTER: Build an extra module for the LEGO Creator Lighthouse Point, or rebuild an already existing module of the set. Using the LEGO Creator App (available at the App Store and Google Play), use the turnaround feature to create a 360 view of your creation (if the LEGO Creator App isn’t working for you, you can create a 360 view of your creation using your phone camera). Submit your video to the video-hosting of your choice and copy the URL to your video in the URL field on the entry page on Rebrick. Take up to five screenshots from your video and upload them on the entry page on Rebrick. Use the description field to tell us a bit about your video– then hit submit. When you receive a “Success!” pop-up notification after clicking “submit”, your entry has been submitted successfully. The ReBrick moderation team will review your entry within 1-3 working days to make sure it fits all the contest rules.
➡ LEGO CREATOR CONTEST – RULES: Entrants must be at least 13 years of age at the time of entry. Your entry must be related to the LEGO Creator Lighthouse Point, either as an additional module or as a rebuild from parts of the set. You can use parts from non-LEGO Creator sets, however avoid themed minifigures and keep the LEGO Creator look and feel. Using photo editing software on the photo of your entry is allowed. Using video editing on your video is not allowed for this contest. You can submit multiple entries to the contest, but only one entry per person will be considered when winners are selected. You can read other rules here.
➡ LEGO CREATOR CONTEST – ENTRY DEADLINE: Submit your entry no later than October 7th at 16:00 CET. If you’re not sure what time zone you’re in you can use an online time zone converter.
➡ LEGO CREATOR CONTEST – JUDGES: A panel of judges from the LEGO Creator team will select one grand prize winner and two runner-ups. They will judge upon: overall creativity for additional lighthouse build – 25%, most inspired details of your model – 25%, best turn-around presentation of your model – 25%, best use of LEGO elements – 25%.
➡ LEGO CREATOR CONTEST – PRIZES: There will be one grand prize winner. This person will receive all of the 2016 LEGO Creator 3-in-1 sets, including: #31040 LEGO Creator Desert Racers, #31041 LEGO Creator Construction Vehicles, #31042 LEGO Creator Super Soarer, #31043 LEGO Creator Chopper Transporter, #31044 LEGO Creator Park Animals, #31045 LEGO Creator Ocean Explorer, #31046 LEGO Creator Fast Car, #31047 LEGO Creator Propeller Plane, #31048 LEGO Creator Lakeside Lodge, #31049 LEGO Creator Twin Spin Helicopter, #31050 LEGO Creator Corner Deli, #31051 LEGO Creator Lighthouse Point, signed by the LEGO designer, #31052 LEGO Creator Vacation Getaway, and #31053 LEGO Creator Treehouse Adventures. There will be two runner-ups. They will receive: #31051 LEGO Creator Lighthouse Point, signed by the LEGO designer. You can see all the sets mentioned above under the LEGO Creator section of the Online LEGO Shop.
While all contests on ReBrick has been great so far, this is my personal favorite. LEGO Creator really highlights the best of what can be done with LEGO, without the extra hype of the licensed lines. Many of the sets come with alternate models, so they provide plenty of building opportunities, and a great selection of mostly basic elements in nice colors. And the #31051 LEGO Creator Lighthouse Point is one of my most favorite sets this year. I may enter this contest myself…
