The Great LEGO City Mountain Chase contest

To celebrate the release of the new LEGO City Mountain Police set, LEGO put together another great contest to challenge teen and adult LEGO fans. The contest is titled The Great LEGO City Mountain Chase, and it is a mixture of a LEGO building and LEGO photography challenge. 🙂

LEGO CITY MOUNTAIN CHASE CONTEST – OVERVIEW: Capture the chase between mountain police and crooks! Bad guys are on the loose again and heading for the mountains, which means the LEGO City Mountain Police are on the case! Use LEGO bricks and clever minifigure photography to showcase the great chase between the officers and the crooks in the mountains. It’s the classic tale of good and bad in LEGO City, here’s your chance to show off your photography and building skills!

Great contest, isn’t it? The LEGO City Police sets are always funny, and they are particularly great this time around with included bears and beehives!

    The sets are a good indication of what lego would like to see in this contest. Good builds and something funny. And a beehive! And a bear! Can parents enter the builds of their kids in this contest? My oldest is 12 and will turn 13 in May.

      Hm… contests on ReBrick are for teen and adult LEGo fans. There are other contests for kids available through BrickLife and other venues. I won’t recommend entering a younger child in ReBrick. It is against the rules, and it would not fair to the child, as they would be competing against much more experienced builders, including adults. It’s best to enter kids into kid-friendly contest for them to have the most positive experience. 🙂

    I like this contest also. Some of the previous ones had convoluted rules which caused some problems, but this one is simple and clear. It’s very much in the Lego City spirit too. Those pesky criminals are always at it. Whoever is entering, don’t forget to add the policemen saying “HEY!” 😀

      Yep, if you want to enter this one, you better start building! Time seem to fly faster when you work against deadlines. 😉
