Create the Coolest Brick-Built Robot With LEGO Rebrick’s Superbot Contest.

No, this is not a Real Steel kind of contest where LEGO expects you to create the most awesome robot to pit against other robotic combatants. On the contrary, LEGO is calling on all LEGO Mindstorms fans (ages 13 and above) to show off their grandest, most ambitious, LEGO robotic creation to join in the search for the ultimate LEGO Rebrick Superbot.

Based primarily on the LEGO Mindstorms system (though not limited by it if you wish to submit entries later on), LEGO Rebrick’s Superbot contest challenges you to create the coolest, smartest, and most useful robot around using any existing Mindstorms set, or LEGO power functions. Take a video of your superbot (15-30 seconds) solving a dilemma or chore and send it to LEGO Rebrick on or before August 18, 2017 to get a chance of winning any of the following:

 

One (1) Grand Prize Winner

  • A trip for two to LEGO World Copenhagen 2018 in February, including transportation and hotel room stay
  • 31313 MINDSTORMS EV3 signed by a LEGO MINDSTORMS designer
  • A LEGO MINDSTORMS T-shirt

 

Two (2) Runner-Ups

  • 31313 MINDSTORMS EV3 signed by a LEGO MINDSTORMS designer
  • A LEGO MINDSTORMS T-shirt

 

Three (3) Bonus Winners

  • A LEGO Notebook and brick key chain
  • A LEGO MINDSTORMS t-shirt
