LEGO Batman’s Return comic strip contest

It was just about a week ago when we talked about the LEGO Star Wars Freighter Wars Contest, where you can enter for a chance to win the new #75192 LEGO Star Wars Ultimate Collector’s Series Millennium Falcon. Since then, LEGO added another exciting contest to their ReBrick website, this time for Batman fans. Details are below. 🙂

LEGO BATMAN’S RETURN CONTEST – OVERVIEW: Build a comic strip showing Batman re-joining The Justice League! LEGO Batman has decided The Justice League needs to be even more awesome, and to do that, they need him! But how will he go about re-joining? How will Superman and the other members of The Justice League welcome him, considering his behavior in The LEGO Batman Movie? Create a brick built comic strip depicting his return using up to five scenes/panels!

LEGO BATMAN’S RETURN CONTEST – HOW TO ENTER: Build out scenes/panels from your comic, creating up to five scenes/panels, you can use photo editing or other means to create text boxes and speak bubbles, although having these are not a requirement. Use photo editing to combine them all as one picture, or upload them as five separate pictures and submit them to the contest. Use the description field to describe your model – then hit “submit”. When you receive a “Success!” pop-up notification after clicking “submit” on the entry submission page, your entry has successfully been submitted. The ReBrick moderation team will review it within 1-3 working days to make sure it fits all the contest rules.

LEGO BATMAN’S RETURN CONTEST – RULES: Builds can honor any iteration of Batman including TV series, movies, comics or original creations but otherwise should not relate to or include any third party IPs. This means all entries containing third party IPs that do not relate to LEGO Batman or DC Comics, including licensed characters from Marvel Super Heroes, Star Wars, etc. will not be eligible for the contest. Please do not use elements or minifigure parts specific to another IP. Use of any LEGO DC characters is allowed. Your entry must tell a story. Your entry can only be five scenes/panels long, although it can be as short as one scene/panel. You can use photo editing to combine your entry’s photos into one or more scene/panel, or upload each scene/panel as a separate image. Action is accepted, but entries with extreme violence and blood will not be eligible for the contest. Text boxes, speech bubbles, and other effects are not necessary, however you can use photo editing to add text boxes or speech bubbles, built text using bricks, or use paper/common household objects to create text boxes/speech bubbles (please do not write or draw on bricks). 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, however the use of homemade stickers is allowed in the contest. 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 BATMAN’S RETURN CONTEST – DEADLINE: You must submit your entry by October 6th, 2017 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 BATMAN’S RETURN CONTEST – JUDGES: A panel of judges from The LEGO Batman Movie 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 the LEGO Batman universe – 25%, LEGO Batman humor and style – 25%.

LEGO BATMAN’S RETURN CONTEST – PRIZES: There will be one grand prize winner, who will receive the following: #70913 LEGO Batman Movie Scarecrow Fearful Face-Off, #70914 LEGO Batman Movie Bane Toxic Truck Attack, #70915 LEGO Batman Movie Two-Face Double Demolition, #70916 LEGO Batman Movie The Batwing, #70917 LEGO Batman Movie The Ultimate Batmobile, an upcoming LEGO Batman Movie set to be disclosed at a later date, a winner certificate with a small customized model from one of The LEGO Batman Movie designers, and The LEGO Batman Movie swag package. There will be two runner up winners, who will receive the same currently available sets but not the mystery set, and a winner certificate with a small customized model from one of The LEGO Batman Movie designers.

LEGO BATMAN CONTEST – ANNOUNCING WINNERS: Winners will be contacted on the email address associated with their LEGO ID account after October 25th, 2017 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 contest is different than a normal building contest as it also includes photography and photo editing skills, and would be a fun challenge for creative LEGO and Batman fans. There are already a number of entries to this competition, which you can see at the official contest page. And for some inspiration, you can also browse through The LEGO Batman Movie sets at the Online LEGO Shop.

What do you think? How do you like the LEGO Batman’s Return to the Justice League contest? Are you planning to enter? Do you have some ideas already? Feel free to share and discuss in the comment section below! 😉

    Just to let everyone know. Admin has power again!

    Now just waiting for the internet to get re-established.

    Admin posted the update on the Facebook page.

      Thank you for the updates. Thank you for keeping things going.

      It’s WONDERFUL to hear that she’s OK and can begin to get on with her life. I’m sure there will be lots to put right and that will take time but I look forward to her being back.

      I’m sure she will be very impressed with the great job you did in her absence.

      • admin September 17, 2017, 3:55 PM

        Yes, indeed. Will has been awesome, and pretty much my only contact to the outside world with no power and very limited internet connection. He had done great, and I can’t thank him enough. I guess it’s a good thing we live on opposite coasts of the country! This way if one of us ends up in a disaster zone, the other can hold things together.

        Also, thank you all for your patience and well-wishes. This has been a very exhausting week, so I’m hoping to catch some sleep on the airplane tomorrow on my way to Canada. If you guys have any questions you would like me to ask Mega, feel free to add them here, or in the previous discussion. I’m still putting together a list. 🙂

    That’s great! Can’t wait to hear from her again. It’s kinda like the teacher is out and the Substitute teacher has taken over (no offense to Will. He did a great job covering. )Thank you,Will! As for the talks we had first STAR WARS and now D C comics . As I said before ( earlier in the year ) I combined both STAR WARS and DC . I made a BAT – VADER mini fig .

    • Will September 15, 2017, 8:29 PM

      Hmm, sounds like that fig needs a ship.

      The obvious choice is a TIE Fighter / Batwing hybrid.

      Does that make the fig The Darth Knight?


  • JasonK September 15, 2017, 6:22 PM

    So, to be clear on how this works, do you build the scenes from legos, then you take pictures, and put them together into a comic strip? Or can you just draw the whole thing?

    • Håkan September 15, 2017, 7:55 PM

      The first.

      You build, take pictures, and then combine them digitally.

      (Although it also seems that it’s possible to upload the different panels as different images in subsequent order.)

    • Will September 15, 2017, 8:27 PM

      Looks like you can also use LDD if you don’t have the parts.

      But yeah, primarily a building challenge.


  • jabber-baby-wooky September 17, 2017, 11:52 AM

    So how is admin? Is she back up and running yet? Isn’t she supposed to be going to Canada tomorrow? Is that still happening?

    • admin September 17, 2017, 3:52 PM

      I’m back. Thank you for asking. We got power restored on Friday, and internet restored on Saturday. I have been working like mad since then, as I’m leaving for Canada tomorrow morning. Normal posting of articles will begin tomorrow (Monday). It has been a wild and very tiring week… 🙄

  • Legostuff71 September 17, 2017, 8:54 PM

    She baack ! So, glad to hear your o k . I hope you have a safe trip.

    • admin September 17, 2017, 9:54 PM

      Thank you! Yeah, I’m back and gone again. LOL. Leaving tomorrow morning. But I wrote up some articles for the next few days, so you guys don’t get bored. And I will pop in a few times to make sure you don’t get yourselves in trouble. 😉
