If you think that your minifigure collection is a massive treasure trove, then you may want to check this out. LEGO is sponsoring a contest where you can be one of the two proud owners of this very special, ultra rare Platinum R2-D2 minifigure valued at £2,500 or $3,200++. UK’s shop.LEGO.com is currently running the said raffle until January 12, and is open to all contestants 18 years old and above, residing in Europe, Canada, the US and other countries where the LEGO Brand Store can be found.
The best part of it is that no purchase is necessary to join the contest. All you need to do is simply enter your email address, birth date and country of origin on their contest registration page. You are also asked to subscribe to LEGO Shop’s email list, hit the Apply button and your entry will be recorded. That’s all there is to it. Do take note that one email is equivalent to only one entry, and purchasing any LEGO material is not needed in order to increase your chances of winning.
The winner will receive his/her Platinum R2-D2 minifigure on a custom display case, together with a certificate of authenticity to flaunt your prize. For full details of the contest’s guidelines and other mechanics, head over to this link.
