The 2021 Yuletide season saw the duration of one of the longest LEGO Ideas contests in recent memory. It was “A Galaxy of Celebrations,” where contestants must make a brick-film of LEGO Star Wars characters celebrating Earth holidays. The Ideas crew awaited entries from interested members from mid-November to mid-January this year. We could understand why the contest eventually attracted plenty of brick-film entries. After all, who wants to pass up a chance to win the awesome UCS AT-AT (75313)? Anyway, it’s been two weeks since the idea intake phase for “Galaxy of Celebrations” ended. Now, the fans will vote.
Starting this past Friday, January 27, the Crowd Vote for LEGO Ideas’ “A Galaxy of Celebrations” contest has begun. The Ideas review crew already helped by pruning the 195 initial brick-film entries to 20, further divided into four categories. Our featured Earth occasions celebrated by the LEGO Star Wars cast are: Father’s Day, May the 4th, summer and the Holidays. Fans on LEGO Ideas can vote for their favorites on each category until February 3. The category winners will win an initial batch of prizes and undergo a second fan vote later. The ultimate winner gets that sweet UCS AT-AT.
You can check out the “semifinalist” brick-film entries on LEGO Ideas’ blog post concerning the “Galaxy of Celebrations” fan vote. Voting will be done on the official contest page here. The second crowd vote will be on February 13 after a three-day second Expert Review period of the category winners. And after nearly four months, we’ll know the final results of this contest February 24.
