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!”
MyBrickBuild’s Star Wars Ugly Holiday Knitted Sweater sits in second place, meanwhile, keeping to the theme of the LEGO Star Wars Holiday Special and 75279 Star Wars Advent Calendar. They’ll take home 75292 The Mandalorian Bounty Hunter Transport, 75083 AT-DP, 31200 Star Wars The Sith and 75275 A-wing Starfighter.
Finally – drum roll – it’s Buildinjake who sits in pole position for this contest, with their brilliant Downed GingerBread AT-At build. From Darth Vader dispensing gifts from the mechanical beast’s belly to Han Solo and Chewbacca throwing snowballs, there’s plenty of festive fun in this seasonal design.
Buildinjake will now receive the following prize package, which we’re sure will make for a very merry holiday season:
- 75290 Mos Eisley Cantina
- 75005 Rancor Pit
- 31200 Star Wars The Sith
- 75275 A-wing Starfighter
- 75318 The Child
- 40431 BB-8
- 40391 First Order Stormtrooper
