LEGO Ambassador Network News & Events

There are several pieces of news from the LEGO Ambassador Network, including upcoming events, press-releases, announcements, and more. Even though the subjects are quite different, I thought to cover them all in one announcement so we can discuss them in a timely manner.

ONLINE CHRISTMAS CELEBRATION IN LEGO HOUSE: The LEGO House invites fans from all over the world to participate in an online Christmas celebration – an informal and fun 60 minutes experience on this Friday, December 11. Your hosts of the event are Astrid Mueller, Senior Project Manager in LEGO House and Jan Beyer, AFOL Community Integration Manager. For the event, the LEGO House and the AFOL community department have developed two competitions – and the winners will be announced on the evening. It is of course possible to attend the event without attending the competitions. To participate in the competitions you need to do the following.

The first competition challenges you to be creative and build a (Christmas) holiday model on an 8×8 plate. Once done, share one nice picture with the team via email to Jan@LEGO.com no later than December 8, 2020 end of all time zones. Include the name of your creation, your name, and your country of origin in your email. The model you submit needs to be designed and built by yourself and may only contain LEGO elements. The LEGO House team will select the 3 winners.

The second competition involves sharing with the team your best LEGO Christmas childhood memory. Write up the story in English with minimum 50 and maximum 200 words and submit it via email to Jan@LEGO.com no later than December 8, 2020 end of all time zones. Please include your name and your country of origin in your email. The LEGO House team will select the 3 winners. Please be aware that if you will be picked as a winner your story will be read to all participants of the event. Winners of the contests include several LEGO House exclusive sets. You can read more about the event and the contests here: LEGO House Online Christmas Celebration

LEGO IS LOOKING FOR MODEL DESIGNERS: The LEGO Group is looking for new model designers to join the LEGO Design Department in Billund, Denmark. Feel free to share this news in your networks, and of course, if you’re interested, you can apply too! Here is the link: LEGO Model Designer Job Opening

UPDATES ABOUT BRICKLINK: This month, it will be one year since BrickLink joined the LEGO Group, as they celebrate their first anniversary, they made a couple of announcements in regards to the future direction of BrickLink. In the video below, Julia Goldin and Marvin Park, the LEGO Group’s Chief Marketing Officer and Head of BrickLink respectively, will provide an update on what’s planned. As you’ll hear from Julia and Marvin, the focus is on strengthening the BrickLink organization, creating opportunities for more community collaboration, and allowing you to be even more creative and connected.

TOYSPEHERE WEBSITE USER EXPERIENCE SURVEY: You might remember that we talked about a new website called ToySphere that is attempting to revolutionize the way we browse the internet, search for information, and shop for products (see: ToySphere – Immerse Yourself in the LEGOverse). The LEGO Group is now interested in learning more about the user experience that is offered by ToySphere, and they put together a survey to get feedback from LEGO fans. This is a public survey and is open to everyone, but before you enter the survey, make sure you interact with the ToySphere website as the survey questions will ask about your experience. Here is the link to the website: Bricks.ToySphere.com, and here is the link to the survey: ToySphere User Experience Feedback Survey

If you have any comments, questions, or other feedback about any of the announcements above, feel free to share in the comment section below!

    That Lego house contest sounds like something I might participate in. I have a couple of funny Christmas stories to tell. 😀

    Wow. The bricklink designer program is going to be back! I’m looking forward to that.

    Is Lego thinking about buying toysphere? Is that the reason they are interested? I like the look of the site, but without the historic information and catalog, it wouldn’t have as much use. A layout like this would be better suited for brickset or bricklink.

      For shopping, a site like this may be too distracting, but it would be great for the kids zone section. That part of the site is a mess.

    The feedback on the Bricklink announcement is not very positive on the Bricklink Forum. People are saying that Lego is ignoring burning issues that are important to buyers and sellers and instead they are focusing on trivial projects.

  • Emmet December 7, 2020, 7:21 PM

    I would love to work for Lego, Maybe not as a designer, but just be around all those creative people in some capacity. Anyway, I will share the news.

    Is there going to be anything else going on during the Christmas event besides reading the winning Christmas stories and announcing the building competition winners?

    • Thita (admin) December 8, 2020, 11:23 AM

      Hm… I’m not sure. All I know is what’s posted on the page. Let me ask about this on the Ambassador Forum.

    • Thita (admin) December 10, 2020, 3:05 PM

      Okay, so I heard back, and they will have other activities besides announcing the winners. But what they are going to be is a secret. 😀
