Coming from its successful “Build Your Own LEGO Ideas Logo” contest, the LEGO Ideas Team is back and this time, in search of the first ever, community-inspired, LEGO exclusive Gift With Purchase (GWP) set. It seems that LEGO has finally considered the idea of a fan-designed LEGO GWP ever since the idea was discussed extensively across LEGO fan forums. The announcement has been made over at the LEGO Ideas website, and will eventually follow a classic space theme.
Back in November, LEGO opened a design contest both to celebrate the first decade of their fan design-to-official set support platform LEGO Ideas, but also to spruce up the design for their logo. Interested participants needed only to submit their artistic creations in LEGO bricks, other materials or digital CGI.

The ominous image of the still yet to be named monstrous creature looming over at the Upside Down town of Hawkins is enough for any fan to get hooked and wait excitedly on what the Duffer Brothers will cook up next.
