We reported earlier how LEGO was taken over by an irresistibly cute avian-like species straight from Star Wars: The Last Jedi. As a part of a promotional campaign, LEGO has teamed up with LEGO certified professional Duncan Titmarsch and his team of master builders at Bright Bricks to create larger-than-life replicas of these beloved critters from the latest chapter in the Star Wars saga. These small, adorable creatures from the alien world of Ahch-To are made even more charming thanks to their excellent brick-built rendition. These LEGO Porgs statues were spotted at some of London’s key areas, including London’s South Bank, going to Millenium Bridge and past St. Paul’s Cathedral, to London’s Trafalgar Square, and finally nesting at the LEGO Store in Leicester Square. For more information on how these LEGO Porg statues were made, be sure to visit Bright Bricks’ blogsite.
If you enjoyed this march of the Porgs and was fortunate enough to spot one of them on these locations, then you might be thrilled to know that LEGO is throwing in one of these LEGO Porg statues for raffle! Yes, one of these 2-feet tall statues (made out of 8,000 LEGO pieces and weighing almost 17 kilos each) can now be yours for free by simply purchasing any LEGO Star Wars products at shop.LEGO.com from December 15 to January 15, 2018.
Valued at £3000 or more than $4,000 USD each, this raffle contest is open to all LEGO VIP members 18 years old and above, residing in the UK, France, Denmark, Belgium, Germany, Sweden, and Austria. Here’s some of the most important contest mechanics as outlined by LEGO, and you can find the whole set of rules right here.
“These ARE the Porgs you’re looking for…”
LEGO® brings the internet’s heroes of Star Wars: The Last Jedi to London for epic adventure – and gives the public the chance to win their own…
A group of LEGO Porgs – the new Star Wars critters that have set the internet alight – have this week been seen travelling across London and taking in the sights as film fans across the country return to the galaxy far, far away in the latest chapter of the epic Skywalker saga.
LEGO is also giving the public the chance to win one of three of the uniquely built brick birds over the Christmas period*.
From today until the 15th of January, members of LEGO’s free VIP loyalty scheme that buy a LEGO Star Wars set via shop.LEGO.com will automatically be entered into a ballot to be in with a chance to receive their very own LEGO Porg in the new year, the creature adored by stars from the film including Daisy Ridley, Mark Hamill and the film’s director, Rian Johnson – who created them himself.
The group (or ‘murder’) of LEGO Porgs travelled from London’s South Bank, across Millennium Bridge and past St. Paul’s Cathedral – before finishing their sight-seeing tour at London’s Trafalgar Square and the LEGO store in Leicester Square.
