Mix Up Giveaway Results

mixup-results

I know that a lot of people have been hanging out for the results of the Bricking Around Mix-up giveaway.

It was a tough one to decide as there were so many fantastic entries. In total there were 48 different ideas submitted. I am blown away by the talent of the Bricking Around community and I’m definitely going to have to try and do more building challenges in the future. I wish I could have given away 20 prizes for this one.

After a lot of deliberation I narrowed it down to my top four and here they are in order…

(You can check out all of the entries at the end of this post)

Time is running out to enter Bricking Around’s mix-up giveaway

This your friendly reminder that all entries in this competition must be submitted by September 5th.

I recently got a delivery of LEGO sets to review. Then a few days later I got a second delivery containing most of the same sets again. This is not so great for LEGO Australia, but it’s fantastic news for the Bricking Around community.

I got on to LEGO and let them know that there was a mix-up and asked what should I do with the extra sets. LEGO very generously said I didn’t have to send them back, but I had to do something with them. Rather than reviewing each set twice I am giving away the extras to one lucky Bricking Around reader.

Inspired by LEGO’s mix-up I want you to create your own mix-up. What does that mean? I want to see multiple LEGO ideas or themes mashed up in to something new. What about a modular building made out of only Technic elements? Or LEGO Friends meets Classic Space?

You can build an example of your idea with real bricks; build it digitally; or you can even just submit some sketches or a logo design. This is all about your idea and making the concept clear – the best executed idea will win the full prize pack, worth over $700 RRP.

Submit your mash-up ideas here.

Entries close September 5th 2020.

Bricking Around Bushfire Appeal Update

I just want to start by saying that the Bricking Around community is absolutely amazing. You all dug deep and together raised $3286.48.

For each dollar donated the donor received one entry in the prize draw. A winning number was randomly selected and the prize pack will soon be on its way to Ben G.

Earlier today I made the donation to the Red Cross. The total donation was $3286, as I could only enter whole dollars. The other $0.48 will be kept in the PayPal balance for any future charity events.

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.
