A newIdeas contest has begun, with the winner standing a chance at having their build turned into a future gift-with-purchase.
The latestIdeas contest is themed to Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) and is looking for simple moving models using a maximum of 250 bricks, and a minimum of 150 pieces.
The description on the LEGO Ideas contest page specifically notes that you should keep the functions simple and that the team would prefer you to avoid making any cars since the judges are looking for something different.
The grand prize includes 21332 LEGO Ideas Globe, 42130 LEGO Technic BMW M 1000 RR, 42139 LEGO Technic All-terrain vehicle, 42120 LEGO Technic Rescue Hovercraft, 40487 LEGO Sailboat Adventure (GWP), 40448 LEGO Vintage Car (GWP) and the opportunity to have your winning entry turned into a future free set.
While only one user will be getting that grand prize, five runners-up will each receive 42130 LEGO Technic BMW M 1000 RR, 42120 LEGO Technic Rescue Hovercraft, 40487 LEGO Sailboat Adventure (GWP) and 40448 LEGO Vintage Car (GWP).
You’ve only got until May 12 to get an entry together, when the contest will then move into an expert review until May 26, then opening up a crowd vote until June 2 before the winners are announced one week later on June 9.
