LEGO CUUSOO DeLorean Time Machine (21103) Giveaway Winner Announced

LEGO CUUSOO Back to the Future DeLorean Time Machine (21103)

A week ago, I did a giveaway for the LEGO CUUSOO DeLorean Time Machine (21103) because it was Back to the Future Day and after over 13,000 entries, the winner has been randomly chosen by the Rafflecopter widget. Without further ado, the winner is:

Julio Cespedes – Omaha, NE

I’ve already emailed the winner and they have a few days to respond or else I’ll have to reroll. Congratulations to Julio but do not worry as I’ll have another contest on Halloween. Wait that’s tomorrow! Yep, so stay tuned for that post.

LEGO CUUSOO Back to the Future DeLorean Time Machine (21103)

Today is Back to the Future Day and to celebrate the occasion, I’m giving away the 2013 LEGO CUUSOO DeLorean Time Machine (21103). The set was officially retired at the end of last year but was still available around the beginning of this year. It has since been off the shelves and only available on the secondary market like BrickLink and eBay but now you have an opportunity to win one. The giveaway is pretty simple and is ran like many of my previous ones. All you have to do is to use the Rafflecopter widget below and follow the instructions. This contest is available worldwide. I’ll let it run for a week and I’ll choose the winner shortly after that. Good luck!

More LEGO Ideas Migration Details

Tim Courtney has updated the LEGO Ideas blog with more migration details when LEGO CUUSOO moved to LEGO Ideas. He has included some cool facts and statistics of the amount of data that was moved to LEGO Ideas. In the three years that CUUSOO was active, there was about 6.3GB of data and about 400,000 images that needed to be migrated over. Tim also provided the following stats:

578,668 User Profiles
283,008 Avatars
60,173 Projects (including drafts)
227,768 Comments
283,903 Comment “Likes”
1,438,537 Supports for Projects

The post also answered some common questions that people had of the changes to LEGO Ideas. Since websites are always evolving, LEGO Ideas is built using a responsive design which means that the site will resize automatically whether you’re on desktop, tablet, or mobile phone.

As we mentioned before, projects now have a year to reach 10,000 supporters. This is to, as Tim states, “create urgency, enthusiasm, and raise the bar to be considered as a potential LEGO product.” This point of emphasis encourages people to reach out to others to help promote their project.

A big change to LEGO Ideas is that projects can no longer be edited, only updated. Before on CUUSOO, you could edit the project endlessly and sometimes to the point where the end project would be totally different from the original idea. The project also kept all the supporters so it made the original supporters confused on which project they were supporting.
