One can’t help but feel the Force at work if they take a look at this latest LEGO Ideas contest. From its information section at top, it officially began this past Tuesday, November 16. The IP involved: “Star Wars.” And a while ago we just covered LEGO’s reveal of two Star Wars sets releasing January next year. Yes, we’re not getting these ones until the start of next year. But surely many collectors must have formidable LEGO Star Wars ensembles. If they happen to be members on LEGO Ideas and would like to do brickfilms, then they should consider this.
In “A Galaxy of Celebrations,” there are celebrations happening across the (LEGO Star Wars) Galaxy. Your objective, should you choose to join, is to interpret certain Earth Holidays using (preferably) Star Wars elements/minifigs. It could be traditional Holidays (Christmas/Hanukah/New Year), “break” holidays (Spring/Summer), or Father’s/Mother’s Day. But if you really want to sell the “Star Wars” celebration, maybe make your production for “May the 4th.” Then, you must capture your creation on brickfilm, lasting no less than 15 seconds and no more than 30. For the final detail, you can make a silent brickfilm, or with sounds following these conditions.
Background music, if any, must be “royalty-free.” If you want sound effects, LEGO Ideas will allow you use of official Lucasfilm SFX. A library of these is now available on the Ideas server (member-access only). Note that these sounds must only be used in your planned brickfilm, and nowhere else.
What Prizes are at Stake?
The Galaxy of Celebrations contest will have two voting phases. Four entries will be chosen in the first phase, all of which will win these:
Of the four, one lucky brickfilm will be chosen in the second vote. The winner will receive the brand-new LEGO Star Wars UCS AT-AT (75313). Two AT-AT Walkers! How can a Star Wars collector say no?
The current idea intake phase will run from now until January 13 next year. I guess you can make use of the upcoming 2022 sets if you wait. Anyway, Expert Review will last from the 13th to 27th. The First vote will start then, and end on February 3. A second review will last until the 10th of that month, with the next vote until the 17th. Wait for the winners’ announcement on February 24.
