I’ve been contacted by a representative from Toys R Us UK about a photo competition they’ve just started to win either a £100 Toys R Us voucher or a LEGO City High-Speed Passenger Train (60051). It’s a pretty simple contest as all you have to do is to take a scenic picture with a LEGO minifigure. The top 10 photos will be featured and voted upon. Head over to the link above to submit your entries.
**Note: This contest is only for residents of England, Scotland, Wales, or Northern Ireland.**
LEGO ReBrick has a new LEGO Ninjago contest starting today called “The Greatest Villain of All Time in Ninjago” for some really nice prizes. You have to create a stop-motion video revolving around some of the bad guys of Ninjago.
Some of the prizes include a trip for two to LEGOLAND Billund and hotel stay for the grand prize winner while six runner up winners will get signed copies of the Temple of Airjitzu (70751).
The deadline to enter the contest is August 11, 2016. Head over to ReBrick in the link above to see all the rules.

It seems that I never announced the winners of some of the LEGO contests that I had running the past couple of weeks. The first is for a complete set of Series 15 LEGO Collectible Minifigures (71011) which goes to:
The other contest was for the LEGO Seasonal Iconic Easter (5004468) minifigure and that one goes to:
Arrangements have already been made to get the items to the winners. Also remember that voting is still going for a few more days on for the LEGO Architecture Building Contest which is turning to be a very close contest. If you haven’t checked it out yet, head over to the post and have a look.
Last month, I started the Architecture Building Contest on here to have readers create some miniature buildings and monuments of their real life counterpart in the new Architecture Skyline design to win some cool prizes. There are some really awesome entries over in the Flickr Group but unfortunately one of the entries wasn’t based on a real life city, which was stated in the rules, so I can’t include it in the voting process but it was a very good one though based on Batman’s Gotham.
Check out the builds below and if you need a reference to the real life building, I’ve also linked to images of them. Then cast your vote in the Strawpoll link below of which Architecture build resembles the real life buildings the best. The voting period will run until 11:59pm PST on April 16. The city with the most votes will be declared the winner of our very first contest!
Update: After a slight error, there was another entry that wasn’t previously added. Please recast your vote in the link below.

Since I haven’t done a giveaway in a while and I have some extras of the LEGO Collectible Minifigures Series 15 (71011), here’s your chance to win a complete set of them. The contest will start today and will run for two weeks until midnight April 1, 2016. There will be one winner and it will be drawn shortly after the contest is over.
I’m trying a different giveaway app to see if it works a bit better than the one I’ve used before. If you’ve entered other contests before, the rules are pretty similar to before.
**Thank you to the LEGO ARP Team for providing the minifigures for the giveaway. Prize will be mailed by me.**
Late last year, I reviewed some of the new 2016 LEGO Architecture sets including Venice (21026), Berlin (21027), New York City (21028), and Burj Khalifa (21031). I’m happy to announce our very first building contest which happens to revolve around the LEGO Architecture theme with some nice prizes up for grabs.
This contest will run from March 7 to April 7 and you will be building it similar to the new Architecture Skyline design. Choose any city in the world and create five miniature buildings or monuments that are famous in that city.
Since we’re keeping it fairly simple, the build should be more or less around 10 inches in length by 10 inches in height with some leeway for overhang no more than two studs.
How to Enter
There are a few ways to submit your creation. One way is to add it to the Flickr Group. Another way is on Instagram. For both sites, please use the hashtag #tbfarch so we can easily find your submission.
Entries will be judged on how closely the buildings resemble the real life building.
One entry per person.
Participants from United States Only.
Please do not use decals or stickers.
No non-LEGO parts.
No digital entries (LDD).
No digital backgrounds.
Please use a clean background with good lighting so we can clearly see your build.
Entries allowed until the end of the day April 7 11:59pm PST and voting will being shortly after that. The voting period will run for seven days.
After the votes are tallied, the winners will be contacted through their respective entry sites (Flickr Mail, Instagram DM). I will need full name and shipping address. The prizes are courtesy of The LEGO Group and I will be shipping them out personally.
New York City (21028)

There will be four winners and 1st place will be getting first choice of one of the sets listed above, 2nd place will get choice of whatever set is left over, and so on. 4th place will get the last set that is not chosen by the first 3 winners.
