Join Blocks Magazine’s Bat Build Contest and Get A Chance To Win Some of the Coolest TLBM Sets!

Blocks Magazine Issue #28 is already out and this time, the highly circulated LEGO fan magazine has a treat for all Bat-crazy fans out there (including myself). If you’re still eyeing on having a piece of the LEGO Batman Movie, then you’ll be happy to know that Blocks Magazine is running a contest where you can have a chance to win three of the TLBM sets which they are giving away for FREE. Simply post your very own MOC of any Bat vehicle of your fancy (it could also be your very own, original Bat-creation) and get the chance to have your creation selected as the winning build. Here’s Blocks Magazine’s official announcement.

Win The LEGO Batman Movie prizes with the Blocks Bat Build Contest

In the LEGO Batman Movie, the title character has an entire Batcave full of crazy unique vehicles… but can he ever have enough awesome rides? He doesn’t seem to think, and neither do we! In Blocks Issue 28, our talented Mod Squad converted a selection of LEGO sets to fit in with Batman’s unique vibe.

Turn this…
…into this!

As our Mod Squad team has kicked things off, we now want to see what Blocks readers can convert for LEGO Batman. A Bat-Race Plane? A Bat-Airship? A Bat-Gift Delivery van? (yes, naming them is the easy part). Once you have built your Batman conversion, come up with a few sentences explaining why LEGO Batman converted this vehicle for his collection. Our judging panel – including The LEGO Batman Movie Senior Design Manager Michael Fuller as a guest judge – will select the winning builds.

There are some awesome The LEGO Batman Movie prizes up for grabs – first place wins 70909 Batcave Break-in, second place wins 70908 The Scuttler and third place wins 70904 Clayface Splat Attack. What’s more, all three prize winners get a copy of Blocks Issue 28 signed by the movie’s director, Chris McKay and producer, Dan Lin.

 

To enter, post your build to our Facebook page, Tweet your entry to @blocksmagazine or e-mail your image to graham@blocksmag.com. The deadline is midnight on February 27 (GMT). Keep your ‘puter checking Blocks social media channels for build tips from our experts.

Check Out These High-Resolution Pics of the LEGO Marvel Superheroes GOTG Vol. 2 Sets.

A few weeks back, we saw that the LEGO Marvel Superheroes theme has been expanded to include the comeback of MCU’s rowdiest, but endearing ragtag team of superheroes in Guardians of the Galaxy. If you still remember the first GOTG film, you know very well that everyone’s lovable perennial superhero, in a final act of self-sacrifice, decided it’s time to be back in the nursery and to be tended by his teammates for a change. So what’s cooler than having a Flora Colossus from Planet X with a single vocabulary? Why not turn him back to a sapling? And what is even more awesome than that? Create a LEGO babyfig version of him.

We saw the official images in our previous post, and this time around courtesy of The Brick Fan and Brick Heroes, we now have a closer look at the images and box art of this next wave of sets from LEGO Marvel Superheroes Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. See if you can find baby Groot in these of pictures.
