Build the Construction Machines of the Future

Though the submission of entries for the LEGO Ideas Contest – Create Your Most Imaginative Voltron Scene is almost at its end by September 24 next week, the LEGO Ideas Team has launched another contest that challenges LEGO Technic fans to Build the Construction Machines of the Future. LEGO, together with Volvo Construction Equipment invites LEGO builders and futurists to come up with their visions of constructions machines using but of course, LEGO pieces. Here’s a quick rundown of what to expect from this latest brick-building contest.

BUILD THE CONSTRUCTION MACHINES OF THE FUTURE!

Build the construction machines of the future! We’ve teamed up with LEGO® TECHNIC and Volvo Construction Equipment to invite you to build the construction machines of the future – either autonomous or not! What will these construction machines look like, what tasks will they perform? Show us your design of what’s to come!

One Grand Prize winner will win a trip to the Volvo Customer Center in Eskilstuna, Sweden, to an unforgettable VIP test-drive of construction machines, visit to the Volvo Munktell Museum, Volvo Merchandise and LEGO Technics sets. There will also be two Runner Up winners that will get Volvo merchandise, and a collection of LEGO Technic sets.

The top 10 physical entries, to be selected by the judges, will also be invited to be displayed at the Volvo Munktell Museum in Sweden and photographed to be part of a digital campaign.

Similar to previous LEGO Ideas contests, there will be a Submission Phase from today until October 18 (6AM, EST); a Judging Phase from October 19 to November 9; and the Announcement of Winners which will be on November 21.  Other than the usual guidelines of submitting an entry made entirely of physical LEGO elements or via LEGO Digital Designer, this particular contest also stipulates that entries must consist or made up of 50% LEGO Technic parts.

Speaking of winners, there will be one Grand Prize winner and two Runner-Ups at the end of the contest. Additionally, top ten physical contest entries will be invited and put on display at the Volvo Munktell Museum in Volvo’s headquarters in Sweden. The Grand Prize winner will also get a once-in-a-lifetime experience to test-drive Volvo’s coolest construction machines in Sweden.
