Your LEGO Space build could be a future set in new Ideas contest

LEGO Ideas’ latest Space-themed contest will see another fan design chosen to become a future gift-with-purchase.

It’s not the first time the platform has used a contest to accept designs for a promotional set. In 2019, Versteinert’s ‘Aedelsten deluxe’ concept won the LEGO Ideas Vintage Car fan vote, eventually materialising as 40448 Vintage Car in January this year.

Where that contest focused on retro rides, the newly-launched competition instead asks builders to go off-world with Space-themed designs. You’ll need to use somewhere between 150 and 250 pieces, indicating the size of the planned gift-with-purchase, but that’s basically the only restriction.

You’ve got until March 8 at 11am UK time to get your entry in. A judging panel of LEGO designers will then shortlist 15 entries for the final fan vote, based on the usual LEGO Ideas contest criteria including originality, relevance and the best use of LEGO elements.

The vote will be open from March 15 through March 22, with each user eligible to vote once (and only once, the contest page stresses). In addition to seeing their set become a future gift-with-purchase, the grand prize winner will receive 10 copies of the final model, along with the following prize haul:

Five runners-up will also take home 92176 NASA Apollo Saturn V, 75284 Knights of Ren Transport Ship, 60226 Mars Research Shuttle, 40335 Space Rocket Ride, 40448 Vintage Car and a LEGO Ideas tote bag.

Check out the contest page for all the terms and conditions. Three more LEGO Ideas contests are currently underway, involving NINJAGO, brickfilms and video games, while the sports-themed contest closed for submissions earlier today.

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.
