The LEGO Technic Construction Machines Contest is now under the judging phase with lots of really good entries (see announcement here, and entries here). A couple of days ago, LEGO started a new contest for teen and adult LEGO fans with a James Bond theme, inspired by the recently released #10262 LEGO Creator James Bond Aston Martin DB5. The contest is interesting, and the prizes are super generous. Take a look below. 🙂
➡ LEGO JAMES BOND CONTEST – OVERVIEW: “What would James Bond do?”. Ask yourself that as you tackle the 007 Building Challenge where the LEGO Ideas team invites you to Build Something Spectacular from the world of 007! What they are looking for is a creative build that really embodies the spirit of the James Bond universe. It could be your favorite iconic movie scene, landmark or vehicle, an emblem or motif, or a gadget-filled tribute to Q – the ultimate creative genius. Whatever it is, it should be unmistakeably Bond… in LEGO bricks!
➡ LEGO JAMES BOND CONTEST – HOW TO ENTER: 1.) You can enter this contest by building within the James Bond universe. 2.) 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. 3.) Take up to five photos of your creation and submit them to the contest. Make sure to show off your model from all angles and any particular features or functions of your creation. 4.) Add a title and a short description. 5.) Upload your entry to the contest using the blue Submit Your Entry button on this page.

If you are a James Bond fan, this is an awesome opportunity! You have a chance to build any of the cool gadgets, vehicles, and scenes from the movie out of LEGO bricks, and may even win some awesome prizes! While LEGO Ideas contests are usually pretty competitive with lots of excellent entries, keep in mind that this contest is between major holidays, which could mean some of the competitors getting distracted and giving you a better chance. Just sayin’… 😀
