LEGO Design Challenge 2011

September 1, 2011

Who doesn’t want to design for LEGO? Well, here’s your chance. LEGO has a new contest to create a LEGO “Postage Stamp” for the Late Holiday Catalog!

LEGO is asking consumers ages 6 + to design a LEGO themed postage stamp to be featured in the Late Holiday Catalogue .

For each country there will be 50 finalists selected to receive a copy of 10222. 25 will be for ages 6-14 and 25 will be from ages 15 & up. From the 50 finalists, 1 grand prize winner will be selected per country. In addition to a copy of 10222 – Winter Village Post Office, grand prize winners will have their stamp design featured on the late holiday catalog for their country along with a professionally designed and framed LEGO mosaic of their design.

Where: The US/UK/Germany. These are the only countries that mail a late holiday catalogue

When: We will be accepting entries for the contest September 1-30 and selecting the finalists & winners for each country the first week of October.

How: Consumers must simply visit shop.LEGO.com/Design-Challenge (Germany: shop.LEGO.com/Designwettbewerb) to download the official entry form. They or their parent/guardian must complete the form and email it along with their stamp design to the email address designated for their country. No purchase is required and there will be no physical entries collected.

This sounds like a great opportunity to flex your creative muscles! Good luck. 😉

A Galaxie of Holiday Cheer!

A Galaxie of Holiday Cheer!

Somehow I forgot to post this last month and even though it’s a tad late I couldn’t pass up on Lino Martins’ Christmas Galaxie

You may remember a bike featuring Santa Claus and Natasha, his sexy Russian mail order bride, from last Christmas. Well this year they’ve acquired a new custom ride; a 1966 Ford Galaxie 500 convertible. Close the hood and red lights will illuminate the engine compartment and can be seen through the unique hood window. A spacious trunk and back seat can be loaded with holiday gifts (or mischievous elves) and gold grille and rims, plus a dark red and dark green color configuration makes this Galaxie Christmasy, yet more sophisticated than your usual bright holiday colors. A classic white interior ties the whole Christmas theme together. The top can be used when transporting holiday cheer in the dead of winter…or it can come off when bringing toys to all the good boys and girls living in warmer climates. Either way, this is one classy cool custom ride! This was built for the Galaxie of Possibilities challenge over at LUGNuts.

A Galaxie of Holiday Cheer!

Both the car and the Galaxie of Possibilities challenge were really clever. The car for its simply elegant color scheme and pure awesomeness, the challenge because LUGNuters were restricted to only one type of car — a ’66 Ford Galaxie.

My favorite other entry was Peter Blackert’s Ford Galaxie 1966 Convertible (Modified)

I love the use of the Bionicle blue flame element.

And, if you are interested in it, the 27th Build Challenge…Blockbuster Mission! is currently going on at LUGNuts on Flickr right now. Trust me, its worth a read even if you don’t build cars. 😉
