LEGO Rebrick is back with another action-packed contest that will keep your creative juices flowing. Inspired by the high-flying, katana-swinging, spinjutzu-powered universe of LEGO Ninjago, Rebrick has just recently announced its latest contest entitled “The Greatest Villain Of All Time In Ninjago”. We all love to hate the bad guys in our LEGO sets, and this time around, Rebrick pays tribute to the ‘baddest of the bad’ by letting fans come up with the meanest, baddest, most despicable LEGO Ninjago villain that they can think of.
Here’s what Rebrick has to say about the “The Greatest Villain Of All Time In Ninjago Contest”.
Have you ever wanted to immerse yourself in a fun, action-packed ninja universe? Now is your chance to dive into the adventurous NINJAGO world and explore the greatest villains. We invite you to make a max. 1 minute stop-motion video with the theme “the greatest villain of all time in NINJAGO.” Create a story around existing NINJAGO bad guys or build your own super villain(s). We encourage you to be creative and original and show your twist on the NINJAGO universe.
Using stop-motion animation, contestants will create a minute long video that shows their personal pick on who could be the greatest villain in Ninjago. The cool part is you don’t need to have a LEGO Ninjago set to submit an entry. You can either choose from any existing baddie from Ninjago, OR you can come up with your own original character. As long as you use characters/themes within LEGO-created IPs, such as LEGO Friends, LEGO City, Nexo Knights, Super Heroes, etc., then your entry is eligible to join. Just bear in mind that the theme of your stop-motion video must be centered on the world of Ninjago. Here are Rebrick’s criteria for judging entries:
NINJAGO action and humor in the video (33%)
Overall NINJAGO look and feel (33%)
Overall coolness and originality of story and builds in the video (33%)
Deadline of entries is not later than August 11, 2016 at exactly 10AM CET. Each of the six Runner-Ups that will be selected from the successfully submitted entries will receive the massive, 2,028-piece LEGO Ninjago Temple of Airjitzu 70751 set, signed exclusively by LEGO Master Builder Adrian Florea. Out of the six semi-finalists, the Grand Winner will be determined based on the most number of likes that it will receive from the LEGO community once the video entries are uploaded at LEGO.com/NINJAGO. The Grand Prize Winner will receive a trip for two to LEGOLAND Billund in Denmark, including transportation and hotel accommodation.
Be sure to read the complete set of rules posted on Rebrick’s site to have a better grasp of the rest of the contest’s mechanics. To help you jumpstart your film-producing mojo, here’s an interesting video on LEGO stop-motion tips and tricks courtesy of Kevin Ulrich from the Brotherhood Workshop.
