If the release of some magnificent LEGO sets like Hogwarts Icons – Collector’s Edition (76391) hadn’t clued you in, LEGO is currently celebrating 20 years of the LEGO Harry Potter line. And what better way to spread the joy than for LEGO to give some of their latest HP sets away? But this is not without some effort, of course. LEGO Ideas has launched a contest accepting all Potter-Brick-heads looking to dazzle the Brick Wizarding World. For the 20th Anniversary of LEGO Harry Potter, what magical build can you offer to win five related sets including Hogwarts Icons – Collector’s Edition (76391)?
As one can gather from the contest details page in LEGO Ideas, the objective is a LEGO Harry Potter MOC. It has to be, according to the contest people, a “magnificent magical creative” build. And as an additional thematic challenge, the build must have the number “20” displayed somewhere. 20 years of LEGO HP and we mustn’t forget. Ideas members looking to participate can present a physical build or one designed via digital tools (eg. LEGO Brick Designer). Only five photos from multiple angles and focused on details and features are needed. For best resolution the shortest edge has to be 1080 pixels at minimum.
This LEGO Harry Potter 20th Anniversary contest is already running now until October 6. The Grand Prize winner gets these:
- Hogwarts™: Polyjuice Potion Mistake (76386)
- Hogwarts™: Fluffy Encounter (76387)
- Hogwarts™ Chamber of Secrets (76389)
- Hogwarts™ Icons – Collectors’ Edition (76391)
- Fawkes, Dumbledore’s Phoenix (76394)
Two runners-up will win the following:
So either way, winner or runner-up will receive a guaranteed LEGO Harry Potter Hogwarts Icons – Collector’s Edition (76391) set. Given delivery delays in North America (mollified only by LEGO Shop@Home US already accepting pre-orders), this might be a more fun way to get this beauty.
Please refer to the contest page for further details and judging criteria. A winner (and the runners-up) will be chosen by on October 21, and officially announced on the 28th.
