LEGO is having a new building contest called the LEGO The Lord of the Rings Father’s Day Challenge. The objective is to build your favorite scene from the Lord of the Rings movies with your dad. Take a picture and submit it to the gallery and you are entered to win some great prizes. Judges will base the scene on the following criteria: creativity 40%, originality 30%, and chosen The Lord of the Rings theme 30%. You will need a valid LEGO ID to enter. The contest ends at 11:59:59 PM EDT on July 31st, 2013.
Looking at the rules for the contest, you have to create a scene from the Lord of the Rings and not from The Hobbit movie but that doesn’t mean that you can’t use parts from the Hobbit sets to make the LOTR scene.
