There are a few news items from the LEGO Ideas platform I thought would be good to discuss. LEGO Ideas is particularly interesting for adult LEGO fans as it is the most active and direct platform for adult LEGO fans to share their ideas and input on the type of sets and themes they would like to see in the future.
Recently, the LEGO Ideas team ran a challenge to celebrate Singles’ Day – a day for single people to celebrate, worldwide. This tradition sees single people usually treat themselves and celebrate their independence. The challenge came with awesome prizes, including for the grand prize winner the exclusive opportunity to have their submission turned into an official LEGO Ideas Gift with Purchase set. The winning entry is titled Reading, Reading, Reading by Fr_An, and we can look forward to seeing their project turned into an official LEGO set in the near future.
Another piece of news is that the LEGO House is yet again looking for fantastic builds that will be displayed at the world-famous house in Billund, Denmark. There are three different categories to choose from; vintage transportation, the four seasons, and celebrating classic LEGO themes. a minimum of 25 winners across all three categories will each get several LEGO sets as prizes as well as the opportunity to have their model exhibited at the LEGO House for a year, including a personalized LEGO brick with the name and country of the builder to accompany the model. Winners will need to build their model and ship it to Billund with shipping fees covered by the LEGO Group. The entry deadline is August 8th. You can read all the rules and guidelines of this opportunity on the LEGO Ideas website.
And there is still time to enter the LEGO 2K Drive contest where the LEGO Ideas team is asking you to create custom street-racer-type vehicles with 300 or fewer bricks. The wackier, cooler, and ridiculous, the better! They are looking for something truly unique. The grand prize winner and one runner-up winner will receive an awesome collection of LEGO Speed Champions sets and other goodies. The entry deadline is August 1st. You can read all the rules and guidelines of the contest on the LEGO Ideas website.
I also recommend checking out the product ideas section of the LEGO Ideas website. This is where LEGO fans enter their own projects for the chance to become official LEGO sets. Several of them are getting close to the required 10,000 minimum public votes, so if you like them, make sure you support them with your own vote. You can find all the currently running projects on the LEGO Ideas website.
And of course, you can also take a look at the currently available LEGO Ideas sets that were originally submitted by LEGO fans. They are available at the LEGO Ideas section of the Online LEGO Shop.
