Announced as the runners-up were The Tree City from LEt.sGO and Sustainable City from Galaxy333. All three builds incorporate elements of Afrofuturism with a focus on designs from African cultures and monochromatic colour schemes.


These three entries were selected from 10 submissions that made it to the fan vote stage, and it appears that Welcome to the Citatel of Ma’aska Ra was the most popular with LEGO Ideas users.

Now that this contest is over, you can turn your attention towards the 90th-anniversary competition on LEGO Ideas to win a selection of exclusive sets and the anniversary model that will be released later this year.
