I’m a huge fan of LEGO minifigure vignettes and it goes to show that the people behind the LEGO House in Billund also has a soft spot for this form of LEGO art. In celebration of the 2nd year anniversary of the LEGO House this 2019, LEGO Ideas launched a contest that encourages builders to create fun builds that will wow visitors in the famous House of the Brick. This building contest ran for a month from May 6 to June 6, with the winners announced a couple of months ago. The contest had quite a following with more than 40 winning entries that were chosen. Out of this group of winners, there are 21 winning minifigure vignettes that were specifically chosen to have the bragging rights of being displayed for a year inside the LEGO House until 2020.
These 21 winning minifigure vignettes depict our little actors either in the business of doing their daily chores or living out the adventure of their lifetime. What makes these winning entries stand out is the particular brand of LEGO humor that they convey which is quickly recognizable to any LEGO fan.
Not only do the creators of these minifig depictions got the bragging rights of displaying their work inside the House of the Brick, but they also received the exclusive LEGO House Dinosaurs (40366) set that can never be found anywhere else. As a badge of their outstanding accomplishment, each of the winners was also awarded a uniquely printed personalized LEGO brick, with the name and country of the builder to accompany the model.
I’ve compiled these 21 winning minifigure vignettes for our viewing enjoyment and easy reference. You may also click on the following links below for more info on these entries.
Which among these winning minifigure entries is your favorite? Let’s talk about it in the comments below.
Coffee Cup Cafe by printed_slope
A man was getting his cup of coffee one day from the Coffee Cup Cafe. Along comes a Gingerbread Man carrying a red cup, like this is nothing odd. Presumably, he also wants a coffee. That or he wants to ask for spare change or donations for something. The man and the barista have never seen anything like this before and just stare open-mouthed at him in surprise.
An Unexpected Visitor by AleksBricks
I got my inspiration from Western times and movies. I knew from the start I wanted to make a fun scene with a dinosaur because I love dinosaur movies.
Royal Guard by printed_slope
The Royal Guard is just doing his duty. Some annoying tourists come along and decide to see if they can distract him. One of the tourists is taking a photo while the other two try to get a reaction by brandishing an ice cream and a hot dog in his face. The Royal Guard is getting ticked off and is doing all he can to not lose his temper. A bobby policeman has just entered the scene – will he tell the tourists off?
Surfing Wave by printed_slope
Take to the waves with this creation of a surfing wave. A shark minifig deftly maneuvers the surfboard through the wave. Unlike the surfer who has just wiped out and the wave has sent him “over the falls!”
Great White Surprise by nasa105
What a bright sunny day it is on the seaside fishing pier! The old fisherman is out enjoying his weekend fishing trip, waiting for a bite on his line and making sure those pesky seagulls don’t get into his lunchbox. However, the clever great white shark has his own weekend surprise… A weekend snack to be precise!
Presentation Without Pants by jackmojo1
I have this recurring dream (nightmare, maybe) that I’m giving an important presentation at work and for some reason, I’ve forgotten to wear pants. Everyone is laughing and I’m just standing there mortified. Well, this seemed pretty hilarious to me so here we are!
No Space For Little Room by Ryanzilbn
When my friend coming over, either I have no space to build my hauls or my lego collections are too big. Perhaps a third world problem?
Surprised Postman by ForlornEmpire
A mailbox scares the postman!
The Space Miners’ Cavern by MinifigInSpace
From giant crystals to strange alien creatures, The Space Miners’ Cavern is full of surprises! A heavy-duty trapdoor protects the valuable energy crystals below and doubles up as a way to keep the local inhabitants from making unexpected visits to the surface (at least theoretically).
My Turn Please by benlouisa
There can’t be many things in the world that are more fun than controlling a Chicken Mech dressed as a chicken!
Swimming Race by printed_slope
As the swimming race is about to start, the contestants take their places on the starter blocks. One swimmer looks over at his fellow swimmers and is surprised to see a person in a shark costume and another person in a penguin costume. Sharks and penguins may be good swimming animals, but does wearing a costume means a better or faster swimmer? We will just have to see who wins the race!
Crazy Visit to the Natural History Museum by LuisPG
A quiet visit to the Museum of Natural History can turn into a crazy adventure when the children discover that the ribs of the whale could be swords.
Space Surprise! by Brickpiler
A spaceman has returned from his latest adventure with a batch of flowers, how thoughtful! Unfortunately for him, the foreign floral he brought back is the favorite snack of the space monster that has followed him back to base.
Bank Robbery by LukashevaInna
While the police eat donuts and drink coffee, the robbers dug a tunnel into the Bank vault.
Your Lucky Day by LegoFjotten
Just that special day where your luck changes for the better… or worse. Or even both, at the same time.
Fight for Treasures by ChaMi
Although there are so many treasures, they are still fighting. And the winner will get them all!
Japanese Garden Vignette by AuntMaskedSquid
This detailed model depicts a Japanese lady looking into the water during a walk in her garden. It contains a koi pond, pagoda bridge, bamboo, and many different kinds of trees in its 37 studs long x 27 studs wide x 22 studs high area and is the perfect display model. This model is designed to test the limits of what Lego can do and how Lego can look with its elegant arches, gentle slopes, and picturesque stepping stones.
