Those who have been building with bricks for some time will no doubt know all about the SNOT technique, but for those wanting a refresher or introduction in time for the new LEGO Ideas event – we’ve got the answers for you.
SNOT is an acronym for ‘Studs Not On Top’, and is a common technique used in many official and unofficial LEGO builds. This iconic construction method is being given the spotlight in this week’s LEGO Ideas activity as builders will need to demonstrate their skills in using SNOT to showcase to other fans.
As usual, there is no prize on offer for the smaller-scale LEGO Ideas event and unlike contests, no winner will be selected from the submitted builds. It’s simply a chance to communicate and highlight your models to like-minded builders.
You can read up on the rules of the activity and submit your entry on the LEGO Ideas website, but if you’ve had experience with them before you’ll likely know what to avoid and expect. Entrants must submit before June 8 when the activity will close.
LEGO Ideas also recently revealed the winner of the coastal contest, which will see the fan-chosen model transformed into a future GWP. Those looking for something a little more involved might want to turn their attention to this contest, which is offering two LEGO Marvel prize packages including 76178 Daily Bugle.
