Last month, LEGO Ideas rolled out its list of finalists for its LEGO Ideas We Love Sports! building contest. And following the contest’s fan voting phase, we now have our grand prize winner based on what LEGO fans voted for.
If you recall, the LEGO Ideas We Love Sports! contest has a crowd vote phase where special prizes await the sports-themed LEGO MOC that received the most number of votes from February 15 to 25. And based on this pool of 10 finalists, the LEGO Idea Review Team will select one entry that will go on to become an official LEGO Ideas set, similar to what we have with the Music to Our Ears contest and with its soon-to-arrive LEGO Ideas Legendary Stratocaster. Needless to say, bagging the grand prize for the crowd vote does not guarantee that it will be eventually chosen as the next LEGO Ideas set. But looking at this winners list, I’m really hoping that it will be any of them.
Let’s take a look at this roster of winners starting with the overall grand prize winner.
1st Place & Grand Prize Winner (1,244 votes)
2nd Place & Runner Up Winner #1 (599 votes)
3rd Place & Runner Up Winner #2 (562 votes)
4th Place & Runner Up Winner #3 (553 votes)
Here’s the rest of the contest entries ranked in order of their acquired votes.
