If you’ve visited the LEGO Ideas website often enough, you know they do more than showcase aspiring “LEGO set” builds. When not allowing submissions to gain support for review, they also hold contests for sweet LEGO prizes. Now, the Ideas platform is expanding further with another additional activity for guests.
And in a rather plain naming convention, the new activity available for regular members of LEGO Ideas is…”Activities.” The Ideas team announced this section recently, as a simpler and regularly-held alternative to Contests, which are only held occasionally. Furthermore, it’s not a competition format and there are no prizes awarded.
In their blog post, LEGO Ideas explained that their new Activities segment is an informal challenge requiring warm-up building skills. They’d post a challenge activity for any Ideas member to work on. These submissions will then be featured on the Activity page. And while no prizes will be won here, Ideas will show off really great submissions on social media.
Seeing as this is a new thing for LEGO Ideas they are introducing Activities on a Beta basis. It’ll be available only to registered members and only then to a select number. Once the first few Activities prove to be hits, it’ll be made available to the whole Ideas platform.
To start them off, LEGO Ideas’ first challenge in Activities is this: “Build your finest Micro Modular Building.” This will run from now until next Monday, May 13. If you’re an Ideas member and can acces the Activities beta, why not give it a shot?
