Back in April when most of us have just entered a long period of being cooped up in our homes, LEGO Ideas launched another building contest to somehow make our lockdown blues more manageable. The LEGO Ideas Your Build in the World-Famous LEGO House building contest gives LEGO fans the chance to have their builds displayed in the famed House of the Brick. As of to date, the LEGO House in Billund is still closed to the public, with a scheduled reopening date on June 22.
There are two contest themes: one that focuses on a nature-inspired alternate build, and a fun, LEGO minifigure, or mini-doll scene with that distinct LEGO humor. The nice thing about this LEGO Ideas building contest is that there’s a total of 25 winners that were selected across the two categories, all of them will be receiving a signed LEGO Architecture LEGO House (21037).
And out of this pool of winners, a Grand Prize winner and 2 Runner-Ups were eventually selected coming from each of the two categories. Check out the winners below.
Minifigure Category – Grand Prize Winner
Minifigure Category – Runner Ups
Nature Category – Grand Prize Winner
Nature Category – Runner Ups
The winning entries in the Nature Category really stand out. I love the details on the Lava Dolphin, particularly how the lava seems to flow and crack across the surface using a combination of black 1×1 tiles and cheese slopes on top of the trans-red pieces and plates. As a fan of minifigure vignettes, I love the message behind the Adventures at Home minifigure entry that captures our imaginative pursuits at home, especially now that we are forced to stay indoors.
The Grand Prize Winners from each of the categories will be receiving an impressive prize package that includes the following LEGO House exclusives, plus a LEGO Ideas set.
- a signed LEGO Architecture LEGO House (21037) set
- LEGO House Dinosaurs (40366)
- LEGO House Tree of Creativity (4000026)
- LEGO Ideas International Space Station (21321)
The Runner-Ups will also be receiving a LEGO Architecture LEGO House, and the LEGO House Dinosaurs, and the hard-to-find LEGO Ideas Central Perk (21319).
Congratulations to all the winners and keep on building!
