A few weeks ago, we did a review of the LEGO Legends of Chima: CHI, Tribes, and Betrayals DVD and also ran a contest to give away 5 copies courtesy of Warner Bros. Home Entertainment. The contest is finally over and we had over 900 entries. The winners are, in no particular order:
I’ve already emailed the winners and they have 3 business days to reply. If I don’t hear anything by then, I’ll have to choose some new winner(s). Thank you to everyone who participated and also to Warner Bros. Home Entertainment for hosting the giveaway. If you want your copy of LEGO Legends of Chima: CHI, Tribes, and Betrayals, the DVD is now available on Amazon.
Also remember that we have another contest going for the LEGO Ideas Ghostbusters Ecto-1 (21108) and there’s still time to enter.
I guess this is what many of you have been waiting for. Since we hit 3,000 likes on our Facebook Page, we are doing a giveaway for a brand new, unopened LEGO Ideas Ghostbusters Ecto-1 (21108) sponsored by me. I would like to thank all the supporters of The Brick Fan by giving something back to fans of the site. It means a lot to me that many of you readers appreciate the information I put out. The contest will run for a month and I’ll be randomly choosing a winner shortly after. For this contest, we’ll be trying out Gleam to run the competition since I’ve heard pretty good things about it.
The Ghostbusters Ecto-1 (21108) is the latest LEGO Ideas set that was released and it is an awesome representation of the Ecto-1 from the movies. Now here’s your chance to win this really cool set! It’s completely free to enter and this time, anyone worldwide is eligible to enter. The giveaway contest will run for a month and will end at midnight, August 9th. There are a number of different ways you can enter and there’s even free daily entries so you can come back each day and get another entry. After the contest ends, I’ll announce the winner on our Facebook Page, so make sure you click “Get Notifications” to get all of our updates. You’ll have 24 hours to respond to my message on Facebook and there, I’ll get your shipping details.
Good luck to everyone who enters and again, thank you to everyone who follows the site!
Starting today, ReBrick will be having a contest to name a new LEGO Pirate ship. The contest will run until Sunday, April 13th and the winning name has the opportunity to be the name of a LEGO pirate ship as well as one of the new LEGO Pirate ship sets that is signed by the designer.
Does this mean that we will be getting a new LEGO Pirates theme with new ships in the future? From the looks of the contest, it seems that there may be one in the future especially with the “one of the new LEGO pirate ship sets” wording. What are your thoughts on this contest of naming a new ship and us potentially getting a new Pirate ship or even a fleet of them?
Just as we wrapped up a previous contest, we are having another one starting today. We here at The Brick Fan are teaming up with Shirts.com to do a giveaway for two youth-sized LEGO t-shirts. One shirt features Darth Vader as well as the X-Wing and TIE Fighter. The other shirt features the X-Wing and many of the notable characters in the Star Wars franchise (see below). This contest is only open to US residents and it runs until the end of March. Winners will be randomly chosen shortly after using the old trusty Rafflecopter app. Be sure to like and follow Shirts.com for a few more entries and also check out their whole lineup of LEGO T-Shirts they have available. Good luck to everyone who enters!
The winner of the “Imagine Our Future Beyond Earth” contest was the “Sunbeam,” created by Jay Semlis from England. The satellite is used to look at the outer cornea of the sun. There were also two runner up winners including “The ORACOM” by Sergio Parra from the United States which is a Mars spacecraft and the “Asteroid Initiative” by Peter Hollander also from the United States which is used to pick up and move asteroids.
NASA’s associate administrator for education Leland Melvin says, “Our intention was to unleash everyone’s creativity and inspire participants to combine real NASA research with imaginative flights of fancy. Looking at the winning designs, it’s clear we did just that.”
The grand prize winner of the contest received the LEGO CUUSOO Hayabusa (21101) set, signed by the LEGO designer Melody Louise Caddick, recognition and honorable mention on NASA.gov, and a collection of NASA memorabilia including a personalized signed lithograph from Melvin.
There was also another contest called the “Inventing the Future of Flight” to create a prototype of a future aircraft as well as writing a technical paper to explain the model and how it is taking NASA’s ideas and improves on them. The winning model for the younger builders category was the “Flying Extinguisher 4000 Fish Eagle” created by 16 year old William Nodvik from the United States which is a long range supertanker that puts out wildfires.
The overall winner for the “Inventing the Future of Flight” was the “Hydrogen Powered Regional Airliner” by Claes Sundstrom from Sweden. The model is a hybrid wing body and hydrogen fueled, turboelectric engines and is used to cut down on noise, fuel usage, and emissions. Winners received a LEGO Trophy, a collection of commemorative NASA memorabilia, and got to do a virtual presentation of project to NASA and/or LEGO specialists.
