Win The Ultimate Modular Prize Pack

Modular Contents Main Small

This is amazing. I’m usually a pretty positive guy who is fairly generous with superlatives, but calling this amazing is probably an understatement.

LEGO are holding a competition that is only being promoted to LEGO fans through RLUGs or RLFM sites (like this one). The prize is ALL OF THE MODULARS. No, that doesn’t just mean the modulars that are currently available, I mean all of the modulars. It seems that somebody at LEGO has been doing some digging through their secret vaults.

This is the full prize:

  • 10230 LEGO Mini Modulars
  • 10182 LEGO Café Corner
  • 10190 LEGO Market Street
  • 10185 LEGO Green Grocer
  • 101097 LEGO Fire Brigade
  • 10211 LEGO Grand Emporium
  • 10218 LEGO Pet Shop
  • 10224 LEGO Town Hall
  • 10232 Palace Cinema
  • 10251 Brick Bank
  • 10246 Detective’s Office
  • 10243 Parisian Restaurant
  • 10255 Assembly Square

Yep – all of that. Two runners up will win a 10255 Assembly Square.

It’s the dream of a lot of LEGO fans to own the full set of modular buildings, and now is your chance to get the older ones new in a box from LEGO directly. Buying all of those sets new in box would cost you thousands.

How do you win? To enter this competition you need to create your own LEGO Mini Modular building. There are some specific specifications that you will need to comply with:

  • Your model should be 8 x 8 studs.
  • Must include two stud wide footpath/sidewalk.
  • The model must feature two “Technic Brick 2×1 with 1 Hole” so that it can connect to other models. These should be positioned 2 studs in from the back and four from the front
  • Can be either a straight or corner building.
  • There is no restriction on height.
  • Should be a similar scale to 10230 LEGO Mini Modulars and not include LEGO Minifigures.
  • Do not make a licensed mini modular.
  • You can build with real bricks or use LEGO Digital Designer software
  • Some photo editing is allowed, for example to replicate a printed brick.

There are a few more rules that you can check on the competition page. There are also some restrictions on who can enter, but none that should affect Australian entrants.

You can submit your entry via the competition page here. Entries close on May 13th 2017 so you’ve got a little bit of time to plan and build something awesome. Good luck everybody.

Here’s that prize list again…

Celebrate Easter With #LEGOEaster

40086 Easter Bunny

The best thing about becoming an RLFM site is that I get to find out about all sorts of great things for you – the members of the Bricking Around community. This campaign from LEGO is one of those opportunities.
