As a LEGO Ideas contest ends, so a new one begins. After the LEGO Harry Potter 20th Anniversary contest concludes, another based on a new Ideas set release is on. Surely you’re still basking in the glory of the Fender Stratocaster (21329), music lover or otherwise. That Ideas set could be yours, along with an Ideas Grand Piano (21323) and (GASP!) a real Stratocaster. Got your attention now? Then read on with our little feature for details then check out the contest page for specifics.
“Strike a Chord with the Fender Stratocaster!” So goes the latest LEGO Ideas contest title. How do you do that? The Ideas crew wants you to depict music-related imagery featuring the legendary guitar. Was the Stratocaster featured on the cover of your favorite album? Recreate it in LEGO. Remember a musical performance where the band members carried it? Build it brick by brick with minifigures. Indeed, this is another contest where Ideas members participating can use third-party IPs. But just make sure those said IPs are allowed by LEGO. Thankfully LEGO Ideas has an IP verification tool on their site, usable when submitting product ideas. They do give you full blessing for using the Beatles.
IP complexities aside, participants who are also music enthusiasts will find this contest worth it. To reiterate the prizes for the grand winner, they are:
- LEGO Ideas sets
- LEGO Ideas tote bag
- Fender PLAYER STRATOCASTER® (Model #: 0144502513) (You know you needed to verify)
Nine runners-up will get the LEGO Ideas Stratocaster (21329) and tote bag for their efforts. The contest will take in ideas from October 5 to November 4. The expert review phase runs from the latter date to November 18. A crowd vote follows from the 18th to 24th. Tune in on December 2 for the announcement of winner and runners-up.
