LEGO Creator Build an Add-On Contest

While the LEGO James Bond Contest is still going on (see: LEGO Contest for James Bond Fans!), the LEGO Ideas team launched another exciting contest for teen and adult LEGO fans, this time in collaboration with the LEGO Creator 3-in-1 team. As usual, the contest is fun and interesting, and the prizes are super generous. See details below. 🙂

LEGO CREATOR CONTEST – OVERVIEW: Do you ever feel the need to just add something to an existing LEGO set to make it even cooler? Now, the LEGO Ideas team invites you to use your creative skills by building an add-on to the A-model of any 2018 LEGO Creator 3-in-1 product. Your add-on can be small or big, as long as it gives the product the ultimate coolness! Here is the chance to activate your LEGO bin and think outside of the box!

LEGO CREATOR CONTEST – HOW TO ENTER: 1.) Build an add-on to the A-model of any 2018 LEGO Creator 3-in-1 product. You can see the full list of 2018 products under the prizes section. 2.) You don’t need to have a model from the LEGO Creator 3-in-1 assortment to enter the contest. You are welcome to build an add-on without the model you want to add it to. 3.) Please include a note in your description saying what 2018 LEGO Creator 3-in-1 product you have added your build to, or would like to add it to. 4.) Submissions may be in either physical bricks or by using a digital building tool such as LEGO Digital Designer. However, since LEGO Creator 3-in-1 is all about building and rebuilding, the LEGO Creator team encourages you to build your entry with physical bricks. You’re welcome to use image editing tools, such as Photoshop, to enhance your photos/presentation. 5.) 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. 6.) Add a title and a short description. 7.) Upload your entry to the contest using the blue Submit Your Entry button on this page.

LEGO CREATOR CONTEST – RULES: Your add-on may contain LEGO system elements or LEGO Technic elements (no LEGO DUPLO elements), however the LEGO Creator team encourages you to only use LEGO system elements to match the LEGO Creator 3-in-1 theme. The LEGO elements must be genuine (not cut, glued, drawn on or otherwise modified). Each entry must only include one add-on item, however you may submit multiple entries. Entries may not include licensed or copyrighted elements, stickers/printed elements and minifigures. This means all entries containing elements from third party intellectual properties (IPs), including licensed characters from Marvel and DC Super Heroes, Star Wars, Harry Potter, Ferrari, etc. will not be eligible for the contest. This also includes LEGO IPs such as LEGO Friends, LEGO NEXO Knights, LEGO Elves etc. No custom artwork (stickers/prints). Entries may only contain official LEGO-made stickers or printed elements from non-licensed sets. You must be the original creator of all creative work you submit (the model, images, photographs, description text, etc.) and you must have the exclusive right to submit your model to this LEGO Ideas contest. You may not submit a model made by, or on behalf of, someone else. Entries must be new creations and not previously posted online or submitted to any other contest. You must be at least 13 years old to participate and enter. Please note that there are other rules and restrictions, so make sure you read through the contest page carefully.

LEGO CREATOR CONTEST – DEADLINE: You must submit your entry by December 4th, 2018 at 6:00 a.m. EST. You can use an online time-zone converter to make sure you don’t miss the deadline.

This is one solid contest, with an interesting challenge that requires both creativity and building skills. If you can throw in some LEGO humor it will likely get appreciated as well. I’m really looking forward to see the entries to this contest! If you don’t have, or not familiar with the sets that can be used as starters for this contest, check the LEGO Creator section of the Online LEGO Shop.

    So Lego is doing a new contest every month? It’s becoming hard to keep up. Really great prizes though!

    • JasonK October 30, 2018, 3:49 PM

      They did that on Rebrick too. A contest every month, or sometimes every couple of months.

  • Peter October 30, 2018, 3:36 PM

    This is an interesting one. There is a great variety of creator sets, so there is a lot that can be done. Creating an add-on without having the set might be challenging though.

    • JasonK October 30, 2018, 3:50 PM

      You can use LDD to build the set than do the addon.

  • Master Builder October 30, 2018, 5:00 PM

    This contest should bring in some good entries, and a good variety too! Although with all the holiday stuff it may be hard to find the time to build. I think they should run a contest every two months, not every month, but as long as they have lots of entries I don’t think they will change.

    • Master Builder October 30, 2018, 5:00 PM

      Why am I pink? Was I always pink? Not my favorite color.

      • admin October 30, 2018, 5:07 PM

        I just checked, and yes, your icon was always pink. It is randomly generated based on your email address. If you change your email, your icon color will change too. Alternatively, you can set up your own icon at Gravatar.com and it will magically appear here. 😉

          One Aerosmith band can’t be wrong!

  • PrashBricks III October 30, 2018, 5:17 PM

    Someone should create a Lego-32X and a Lego-CD.
    It would suit with halloween, since those are probably the most horrifying add-ons ever created by mankind. 😉

    Nice contest though, sadly I don’t have any of the newer three-in-one sets, I have the old light house, and that is probably the only three-in-one set I have owned, they are nice, but a little bit to small and I like lego star wars a bit more. I like modular buildings, but I those are sadly excluded out of the contest, so I can’t build an add-on for those if I wanted to.

    • PrashBricks III October 30, 2018, 5:18 PM

      The light house is a fantastic set though, I would really like to build an add-on for it, but it doesn’t belong to any of the newer sets.

      • brickmaster October 31, 2018, 11:30 AM

        I really like that set too. It’s one of the best lighthouses Lego made!

    Shame there was no mention of my favourite creator set from this year 31078.
