Last Chance to Enter the LEGO Ideas Building Contest

July 18, 2014

by jackintheblox



The entry period for the LEGO Ideas Building Contest is coming to a close! If you want the opportunity to have your work immortalized as little plastic bricks, you’ve got a little over two days to enter your piece. If you need a reminder of what we’re looking for, the original announcement of the contest and all the details are available here. But, basically:

  • You build a ROBLOX-themed LEGO set.
  • You submit it to us.
  • The ROBLOX community votes for its favorite sets.
  • The winning entry, chosen by ROBLOX staff, gets submitted to the LEGO Ideas site to possibly become a real LEGO set!

We’ve received a lot of great submissions so far, and we’re still accepting entries until July 20 at 11:59 pm PT. Don’t wait! Start building today and submit your LEGO set on the contest submission page here.

Also, all entries are currently open for voting, and voting will continue through the end of the month. Even if you’re not entering, head over to the contest page and vote for your favorites! We’ve seen some cool examples of games like Crossroads and Death Run 2, among others.

While we (and LEGO Ideas) prefer to see sets created using physical LEGO bricks, we get that acquiring exactly the right bricks can be difficult and costly. If you’re in that situation, you should check out the LEGO Digital Designer. This software lets you design and build a virtual LEGO set, and, best of all, it’s free.

The guidelines

  • The building contest – including both entries and voting – is open to all ROBLOX members.
  • Your project must be ROBLOX-themed.
  • Projects must be created using only existing LEGO bricks (no suggestions for new brick shapes) or the LEGO Digital Designer.
  • To submit your project, you must submit a high-quality photograph and basic information on the contest website.
  • Your entry must meet the community standards of ROBLOX.
  • Your entry must be received by July 20, 2014 at 11:59 p.m. PDT.
  • Keep your project within a reasonable number of LEGO bricks (i.e., 300 to 500); after all, you want this to be a real LEGO set, not a giant set that no one can afford
  • Create a singular project, not a series of projects.
  • Two especially important qualities for a LEGO set are stability and playability. You know how sometimes you build something with LEGOs and it falls apart too easily? Yeah, don’t do that. You want a set that holds together well. And you want a set that’s fun to play with as well as put together. Think about LEGO sets you love, and let them be your inspiration.
  • We reserve the right to disqualify any entry that does not follow the official rules.

Good luck and happy building!
