The LEGO Ideas website has just announced the LEGO Ideas Exploring the World of Middle Earth building challenge. This new contest lets you render the world of Middle Earth brick by brick as you creatively imagine it. Starting today until April 11, 2023, you can recreate your favorite Tolkien LOTR location or scene and have a chance to win a LEGO Icons The Lord of the Rings: Rivendell along the way.
Unlike other building challenges that limit you to a certain number of pieces or build dimensions, the LEGO Ideas Explore the World of Middle Earth Challenge doesn’t seem to have any of these restrictions. Furthermore, you are not just limited to the TLOR films themselves, but you can also draw inspiration from the books of the great J.R.R. Tolkien himself. You also have the leeway to use a digital model or one that is made of physical LEGO bricks.
There will be one (1) Grand Prize winner and one (1) Runner-Up winner for each category (Location and Scene). Prizes at stake for this building challenge are a LEGO Icons The Lord of the Rings: Rivendell (10316) set (valued at $500) signed by LEGO Designers Chris Perron and Wes Talbott, and a mystery prize package of TLOR goodies.
For more information about the nitty-gritty details of this building contest, be sure to review the LEGO Ideas building rules for this particular challenge. Just be sure to register and have your original LEGO LOTR creation ready on or before the deadline on April 11, 2023 at 6PM EST. Winners for the LEGO Ideas Exploring the World of Middle Earth building contest will be announced on the platform on May 2, 2023.
Happy building everyone!
