New LEGO Pirate Ship Coming in the Future?

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?

LEGO NASA’s Missions: Imagine and Build Contest Winners

Back in June, we reported there was a LEGO contest called NASA’s Missions: Imagine and Build happening on ReBrick in conjunction with the space agency.

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.
