The brief is pretty wide: the Ideas team is simply looking for a ‘magnificently magical creative build’ that celebrates the Wizarding World theme. The only caveat is that it must include the number 20 somewhere. How big or small you make that nod to the theme’s two-decade anniversary is up to you.
Entries can be built either physically or digitally, and you can submit up to five photos of your model – at least one of which should show how you’ve incorporated the number 20. Otherwise, the rest of the usual LEGO Ideas contest rules apply, including adhering to the LEGO Group’s brand values. You’ll find them all over on the contest page.
One grand prize winner will take home four of the 20th anniversary sets, including 76386 Hogwarts: Polyjuice Potion Mistake, 76387 Hogwarts: Fluffy Encounter, 76389 Hogwarts Chamber of Secrets and 76391 Hogwarts Icons Collectors’ Edition, plus 76394 Fawkes, Dumbledore’s Phoenix. That’s an instant Hogwarts display, the latest direct-to-consumer exclusive, and two-thirds of this summer’s golden minifigure line-up.
Two runners-up will also receive 76391 Hogwarts Icons Collectors’ Edition, along with 2018’s promotional 5005254 Harry Potter Minifigure Collection. (Interestingly, Ideas lists this prize as 6232944 Limited Edition Minifigures, suggesting it could be something else entirely – although the image is definitely the 2018 pack.)
Head over to LEGO Ideas to read the full rules, see all the submissions so far and upload your entry. You’ve got until October 6 at 11am UK time to do so. The winners will then be revealed no later than October 28.
