Recently, LEGO ran a contest titled Out of This World Space Builds (see: More LEGO Ideas Contests with Great Prizes!) The contest challenged LEGO fans to build a space creation with a minimum of 150 bricks and no more than 250 bricks. The reason for the size limitations is that the grand prize winner of this contest will have the opportunity to have their model turned into a new LEGO gift with purchase set.
You might remember that this is not the first time a gift with purchase set was the result of a LEGO Ideas contest. The #40335 LEGO Space Rocket Ride from 2019 and the #40448 LEGO Vintage Car released earlier this year were selected in a similar way. Choosing the winner is a community effort. First, a panel of judges from the LEGO Ideas team chooses a dozen or so entries from all the submissions, which then go onto the fan vote phase, where LEGO Ideas users could pick their favorite.
Currently, the Out of This World Space Builds contest is on the fan vote phase. This means that the LEGO Ideas judges already selected 15 finalists, and LEGO Ideas members can pick their favorite. Please note that each member can only pick one of the entries. So choose carefully, as this will be your vote for the next gift with purchase set. When you click on any of the links below, it will take you directly to the LEGO Ideas page to vote for that project. Voting will run until March 22nd.
