It’s time to close out the contest I was running for the LEGO BIONICLE SDCC 2015 Skull Scorpio Mask. There were just over 5,000 entries which is fairly low considering that the other two contests had a couple thousand more entries. It’s not really a surprise since people were really going for the exclusive Super Heroes minifigures. As usual, the winner is randomly chosen and the name that was given is:
Saqib Asomugha – Massachusetts
Again, thank you to everyone who participated in the SDCC giveaways. I wish I had more of the SDCC stuff to give out but that’s all I could get my hands on. Stay tuned as in a few weeks, I have another contest planned hopefully in the beginning of September. I won’t say what it is right now but I’m pretty sure you guys will definitely like it.
The LEGO CEE Team has sent over some details on a new LEGO TECHNIC contest being held over on Rebrick with some awesome prizes for the winners included an unannounced set as well as the new Mercedes-Benz Arocs 3245 (42043). Check out the details of the contest below.
Build THE Mercedes-Benz Truck of the future!
One day during the early 1920’s Karl Benz and Gottlieb Daimler sat down in Germany and agreed to merge their two car companies into one and start producing Mercedes-Benz cars. They had each made their own versions of the world’s first petrol-driven cars back in 1886. Within years, Gottlieb Daimler sold his first truck – almost 120 years ago!
Some of the first Mercedes-Benz branded diesel powered trucks were built in Stuttgart in 1923. Today, in 2015, half of all trucks on the German roads are Mercedes-Benz trucks.
Just imagine how Karl and Gottlieb would react if they were time-warped from 1925 to 2015 to witness just how big, fast and capable the Mercedes-Benz trucks have become 90 years later! What would they say if they could see what their vision has led to?
Think the new LEGO® Technic 42043 Mercedes-Benz Arocs 3245 is the coolest Technic set ever made? (Yeah, we like it, too!) And have you thought about what the perfect truck would look like if you could design your own?
Hold that thought, and now, imagine yourself traveling 30 years into the future, to 2045. You’re taking a brand new Mercedes-Benz Truck out for a spin. It’s the truck of your dreams! What does it look like? How does it move, and what will it haul? What will be required of a truck in the year 2045? What will it be fueled by – diesel, electricity, recycled waste, or something completely different?
Be a visionary, and build the ultimate Mercedes-Benz Truck of the future with LEGO Technic!
Ready, research, design!
How to join:
Look back 30 years: how have truck designs evolved since 1985? And looking ahead, can you spot the latest trends in truck design, alternative fuels, transportation needs, infrastructure changes, and combine it all into the perfect future truck?
To join the competition, research, design, and build your model, take a great picture and upload it, and if you feel like recording a video of your design process, feel free to send that to us, too.
Rev up your engines, and join the competition on ReBrick.com! (http://rebrick.lego.com/technic) You will find all the fun details and small print there – we can’t wait to see your designs. Enter now until October 5th, 2015!
One talented design winner will take home an exclusive first prize: LEGO Technic models worth 1,000 EUR, a signed LEGO Technic 42043 Mercedes-Benz Arocs 3245 box, and a specialized Winner certificate.
Nine runners-up will each be awarded a signed LEGO Technic 42043 Mercedes-Benz Arocs 3245 box, and a specialized Winner certificate.
Happy building, and good luck from the LEGO Technic Team!
For my final SDCC 2015 contest, I’ll be giving away the exclusive LEGO BIONICLE Skull Scorpio Mask. This version of the mask is the same one that is in the the Skull Scorpio (70794) set but in a trans-neon green color.
The giveaway will have the same rules as my previous ones. Click on the Rafflecopter widget below and follow the instructions for the Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ entries. You do not have to “like” or “follow” the pages but they are definitely appreciated.
Since I started this contest late, I’ll add an extra day on it and it’ll run until 8/16/15 at 11:59:59pm PST. Good luck to everyone who enters.
A week ago, I ran my second SDCC 2015 contest by giving readers a chance to win the LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Captain America (Sam Wilson) minifigure. The entry period is now over with over 8,000 total entries and the winner has been randomly chosen. Their name is:
Nina Rojas – Costa Rica
Thank you to everyone who entered but wait, there’s still one last giveaway to do. The last SDCC exclusive that I will be giving away is the LEGO BIONICLE Skull Scorpio Mask. It might not be as popular as the other exclusives but it’s free to enter so who knows. You might just get lucky. I’ll start that giveaway in a day or so and it’ll last for about a week.
There’s no time to slow down for my next giveaway. For this one, I’ll be giving away the SDCC 2015 exclusive LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Captain America (Sam Wilson) minifigure. This version of Sam is the new Secret Wars version where he has taken over the reigns of Captain America. This is currently the only way this minifigure as it isn’t in any other set unless LEGO has something planned for Secret Wars comic series in the future.
The same rules apply to this contest as with the last one. Just follow the Rafflecopter widget for the instructions. While you’re on the Facebook Page, feel free to like the page itself if you haven’t yet, although it’s not required to enter. You can also get more entries by following my Twitter and Google+ pages but they are optional.
This giveaway will also run for a week and will end on 8/7/15 at 11:59:59pm. Good luck everyone and may the odds be ever in your favor.
Last week, I ran a contest to give away the LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes SDCC 2015 Arsenal minifigure and there was a whopping 9,490 entries which is the most in a week span. After much anticipation, the winner is:
Jia Xiang – Hong Kong
I’ve already emailed the winner and if I don’t hear back, I’ll have to reroll the winner. To everyone else, thank you for entering but don’t fret. There is still two more SDCC 2015 giveaways in the next couple of weeks and I’ll be posting the contest for the LEGO Marvel Super Heroes All New Captain America (Sam Wilson) minifigure a little later today so stay tuned for that.
Earlier this week, I wanted your guys’ opinion on what kind of giveaway I should do for the San Diego Comic Con 2015 exclusive minifigures that I have. It looks like there’s an overwhelming response that you guys want three separate giveaways so that’s what I’ll do. I’ll make each giveaway a seperate post using the Rafflecopter app and each giveaway will last about a week.
The first giveaway is for the LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes Arsenal Minifigure. Like I said before, these giveaways are worldwide so those who weren’t able to attend SDCC can have a chance to win as well.
The ways to qualify for the giveaway are stated in the Rafflecopter app below. While you’re at The Brick Fan Facebook Page, feel free to like, share, and comment on this contest post. The Twitter and Google+ entries are optional but they do give more entries for following my other social media outlets.
This particular giveaway will end on 7/31/15 at 11:59:59pm. After that, I’ll update this post again with the winner’s name and I’ll contact them directly.
Good luck everyone!
