There is a new LEGO building challenge on LEGO Ideas for LEGO Harry Potter fans. Below are the details.
“Our happiest memories help us produce the strongest Patronus Charms! In the Wizarding World, the Patronus Charm is a defensive spell that produces an amazing animal guardian. However, that animal can take many forms! With over 100 different animals that can represent you, we want to see that animal built using LEGO bricks!”
The challenge consists of three phases: 1.) Submission Phase – Create and submit your entry before November 14th, 2023 at 6:00 a.m. EST. 2.) Judging Phase – The judges review the entries and choose the winning entries by November 28th, 2023. 3.) Winners Announcement - the grand prize winner and two runner-up winners will be announced on LEGO Ideas no later than December 5th, 2023.
If you’re interested to participate, your submission should only be an animal that can be a Patronus animal using primarily blue elements (any shades of blue).
