SHIPtember 2018
by Isaac S 24 days ago

SHIPtember 2018

SHIPtember approaches rapidly, so get ready to build some huge space ships!

An annual tradition since 2013, SHIPtember has become a massively popular event that revolves around building a SHIP (space ship measuring 100 studs or more) in a single month. Typically SHIPs are built during the month of September (hence SHIPtember), though early starts have been allowed for the past few years, given that you still complete your SHIP in a single month.

Participating in SHIPtember is a great way to get more involved with the LEGO community, as builders share WIPs of their own models, and give feedback on others.
There's even a dedicated Discord server for convenient chatting.
Find the full rules and details in The Shipyard flickr group.

Unsure if you're really interested in taking on such a large project? Keep reading to get inspired by some builds from previous SHIPtembers.

Summer Joust 2018: Wrapup and Results
by Isaac S a month ago

Summer Joust 2018 Results and Wrapup

The third year of the Summer Joust was a massive success with 147 entries from 74 different builders! So on average, each competitor made approximately two entries.

As usual, the vignette category received most entries with 49 submissions.
What surprised me, was that the category with second most entries was Creature: 31.
Followed by Medieval Industry Collaboration with 25, and then Mesoamerican Setting with 17, and 48x48 Castle with 14.
Least popular was the Interior category this year with still a respectable 11 builds submitted.
And while competition was tough in every category, Mesoamerican Setting had the smallest margin between Winner and 2nd place.

10 different competitors qualified for the Conquering Hero award this year, which I believe is the most yet for a Summer Joust.

Keep reading to see the winning and 2nd place entries for each category!

by John S a month ago

The Brothers Brick Microscale Magic Contest

Not sure what to build in the little bit of summer that remains?
Maybe this contest hosted by The Brothers Brick can get your creative juices flowing.
The concept is simple: build anything from Harry Potter in microscale.

"There are two building categories: BIG and SMALL BIG being landscapes, large buildings, and scenes with a footprint bigger than about 16x16 studs, and SMALL being everything else. Builders choose which category to enter their creation into."

The deadline is September 30th, and there are plenty of prizes are up for grabs, including 70143 Hogwarts Castle, 75954 Great Hall, and 75953 Hogwarts Whomping Willow.
Full details can be found on The Brothers Brick, while entries are submitted into the Flickr group.

Architecture Faves Contest
by Paul W 3 months ago

Rebrick Architecture Faves Contest

The LEGO Rebrick website has consistently offered monthly contests with excellent prizes to teen and adult fans. While LEGO will continue to provide the opportunity to build, post, and compete for prizes on an official LEGO run site, that opportunity will soon transition from the Rebrick site to LEGO IDEAS - "the future home of Contests." This change will not be instigated until September, however, so there is still a chance to enter contests on the Rebrick website.

The latest Rebrick contest offering is called Architecture Faves. The contest prompts builders to create a model of a real life location that the entrant considers personally significant - be that one's favorite building, city or place.

As with all Rebrick contests, some great prizes are up for grabs so take a look at the rules and be sure to get your entry in before August 2nd, 2018.
