Win A Percival Graves Minifigure

win-a-percival-graves

Despite the fact that everybody seems to hate the idea LEGO decided to release the Harry Potter minifigure series with another chase minifigure. This time there is only one Percival Graves minifigure per box, which as we all know makes finding them a pain. I know that some of you out there are still looking to complete your collections.

Luckily I’ve been keeping an eye out for new boxes and managed to track down a couple of these guys to give away. There are two minifigures up for grabs.

All you need to do to win one of them is to enter your details in the form below.

Competition: Win A Police Officer or Pug

Could this be the biggest giveaway to ever hit Bricking Around? Well no, not really. BUT STILL – I have two prizes that you may not have been able to find yourself.

One winner will get to pick between: A series 18 Police Officer Minifigure or a 30542 Cute Pug polybag. A runner up will receive the remaining item.

#WhatWillYouBuild – Building Like a Kid With 10404 Ocean’s Bottom

WhatWillYouBuild Building Like A Kid Thumb

This article was planned a while ago but it just happened to coincide with a campaign from LEGO called #WhatWillYouBuild. Thanks to that campaign I have a copy of the 10404 Ocean’s Bottom set to give away. See the end of the article for competition details.

To celebrate the 60th anniversary of the LEGO brick I wanted to do something different. Sure I plan to review some amazing sets that are out this year but I also wanted to try and capture what made me fall in love with LEGO in the first place. I set out with a simple goal – build like a kid.
