LEGO Ideas Star Wars Christmas contest winners announced

LEGO Ideas has revealed the winners of its festive LEGO Star Wars contest.

The crowdsourcing platform’s Celebrate The Holidays in a Galaxy Far Far Away contest asked fans to give a classic Star Wars vehicle a Christmas makeover. The huge prize bundle – which includes 75290 Mos Eisley Cantina, 31200 Star Wars The Sith and 75275 A-wing Starfighter – pulled in over 1,000 entries.

The judging panel has now whittled those festive builds down to a top three. VNMBricks’ Millennium Falcon Wreath takes third place, and bags 75288 AT-AT, 8128 Cad Bane’s Speeder and 31200 Star Wars The Sith. “A christmas wreath at hyperspeed… what’s not to like?” The Ideas team commented. “The Millennium Falcon and the Christmas wreath. Two unmistakable silhouettes combined!”

I like to think of myself as a journalist first, LEGO fan second, but we all know that’s not really the case. Journalism does run through my veins, though, like some kind of weird literary blood – the sort that will no doubt one day lead to a stress-induced heart malfunction. It’s like smoking, only worse. Thankfully, I get to write about LEGO until then. You can follow me on Twitter at @brfa_chris.
