The last LEGO Rebrick competition, to have a winning MOC design be put on display at Billund’s Home of the Brick in Denmark, will not be closing until next month. But already they’ve got a new contest up and running, this one involving a very specific product line: LEGO Friends.
Several other LEGO themes have already played with having buildable go-kart vehicles for their constituent minifigures, but this 2018 is the first time the Friends line will be focusing on this same gimmick. Now Rebrick is inviting interested builders to get really creative with the Friends girls and go-karts.
The rules are simple. Contestants need only to build a go-kart scene with LEGO Friends minifigures and building elements on an 8×12-stud base. It can be an interpretation of a Friends character’s go-kart, or have the minifigures act out a skit with a MOC go-kart, or even create a racetrack mock-up.
As this Rebrick contest is all about LEGO Friends, the rules stipulate that the resulting brick-and-minifigure vignettes must star any or all of the Friends girls (Olivia, Mia, Andrea, Emma, Stephanie) and relate to the Heartlake City setting. No 3rd party properties must be included in the Rebrick competition entries.
There will be three winners for this contest. Two runners-up will win four of the promised official LEGO Friends Go-Kart Racing sets ($150 value), and a choice of up to $200 worth of LEGO products on shop.LEGO.com. The grand winner will get 12 2018 Friends sets including the Go-Kart ones ($430 value), their choice of $600 worth of items in shop.LEGO.com, and a special trophy courtesy of the LEGO Friends design team. The prize sets will be delivered once available.
This Rebrick competition will last until May 2, plenty of time for entries to pile up. Visit the Rebrick contest page here for more details, and to see the entries that have already been passed.
