In keeping up with LEGO’s 10th year anniversary of modular buildings, LEGO Rebrick launched another building contest where LEGO fans and builders are encouraged to come up with their best mini modular. The LEGO Rebrick Mini Building Madness is open to all LEGO fans at least 13 years old where participants are asked to come up with their most unique mini modular.
Bear in mind that though the LEGO Rebrick’s page says that the deadline is set for today March 12, the Rules page indicates that the actual deadline is set for May 12. I hope that the site’s admin will clear this up soon.
UPDATE: The LEGO Rebrick Mini Building Madness page has been updated already to indicate a May 12 deadline, as you can see from the above screenshot. Keep tabs with their page since they may continue to provide updates and clarifications about their rules.
Like previous LEGO Rebrick contests, the competition itself comes with a huge stash of sweet prizes. I have to read the announcement twice on their website to be sure that I’m not dreaming or something. There will be three winners: two Runner Ups and one Grand Prize winner where the latter will get to bring the home the following LEGO sets, while the Runners Ups will receive the 10th Anniversary Edition Assembly Square (10255).
- Mini Modulars (10230)
- Café Corner (10182)
- Market Street (10190)
- Green Grocer (10185)
- Fire Brigade (10197)
- Grand Emporium (10211)

- Palace Cinema (10232)
- Brick Bank (10251)

That’s a whopping $2,029 worth of LEGO sets for the Grand Prize winner! For LEGO modular fans, it couldn’t get any better than this. Here are the rest of the contest rules for your reference.
