We’ll email the winner after Nov 17. While you wait, tell your friends to wish you luck. About this listing For one night, the LEGO House in Denmark becomes your family’s private playground. Unleash your imagination, bring your wildest LEGO vision to life, and fall asleep surrounded by 25 million bricks. The space Room type: Entire home/flat Property type: Other Accommodates: 4 Bedrooms: 2 Bathrooms: 1 Beds: 2 Check In: Anytime after 2PM Amenities TV Essentials Essentials Towels, bed sheets, soap, and toilet paper Heating Heating Central heating or a heater in the listing Air Conditioning Free parking on premise + More The space The newly opened LEGO House in Billund, Denmark has already drawn builders of all ages from all over the world. Now Airbnb and LEGO House are giving your family the chance to have the place to yourselves for the night—and to make your wildest LEGO vision a reality. Your journey will start when Jamie, one of the finest master builders in the world, welcomes you into the LEGO House and sparks your imagination with top-secret LEGO tips and tricks. Then he’ll join you for lunch served by two friendly robot waiters—but first you’ll have to build your meal order out of bricks. Next, the doors will close to the public and Jamie will lead you on a private expedition. You’ll stand at the foot of the Tree of Creativity, built by hand from over 6 million bricks, and then explore the Masterpiece Gallery, showcasing LEGO creations from fans all over the world. From there, you’ll head to the Experience Zones, where you can direct your own LEGO movie, engineer robotic cars and send them flying over jumps, design cities, and much more. Since all this creativity will no doubt bring up memories of your favorite childhood LEGO creations, the next stop is the basement, where you can trace the timeline of LEGO history and rediscover the most iconic sets ever produced. Finally, you’ll reach your destination: a bedroom floating in a pool of bricks underneath a 6-meter-tall LEGO waterfall. Everything around you is made out of LEGO bricks: armchairs, lamps, the alarm clock, the TV, your favorite story book, and even the cat. But before you drift off into your most colorful dreams ever, there’s building to do. After all, it was your winning idea that brought you here. Drawing on Jamie’s expertise, you’ll use the endless supply of bricks to make your vision a reality. The next morning, after breakfast and before the doors reopen to the public, there’s one final surprise. We won’t reveal it here, but let’s just say that in some small way, your family will leave your footprint in LEGO House long after you leave, just like the memories of your time here.

Furthermore, by being a Contest without intervention of chance it is not required to make a probabilistic calculation of the possibilities to obtain a Prize by a participant. The probability of being selected as a winner will depend on the quality of each submitted story, following the described criteria. To the extent permissible by law, any local language version of these Official Rules is for reference only, and the English version shall prevail. About the Host, Jamie Hi, I’m Jamie. True LEGO fans will recognize me as the designer behind the LEGO Modular Buildings and Architecture series. As a kid, I dreamed of becoming a LEGO Master Builder.

  5. [LDD][MOC] The Tough Barge

    Hello, Very shortly I thought you might want to check out this virtual build I made for an entry to recent rebrick contest called Freighter Wars. I did not have much time to spend on this and I admitt humbly that the internal structure could use more than just slight improvements. Since I am actually really happy with how it turned out, I may end up re-visiting this and improving its guts to meet my good standards :) You can click on the picture and browse couple more images in my Flickr gallery. If from whatever reason you want to browse the images less conveniently and maybe give me a warm heart like, visit my entry HERE. :D Thanks to Eurobricks member Umbra-Manis for couple of these renders (the fancier three of total five, I am sure you can tell) whcih he made for me in the night, literally couple hours before the contest deadline. Kudos! The design inspired by this badass model built a good decade ago by Mark Kelso, one of the members of my personal hall of awe. The idea is that this Tough Barge (for a lack of better name ideas) was built from a wrecks of Correllian YT-1300 Light Freig... ah scrap it - Millennium Falcon, and another correllian ship. Few welds here and there and this is the result. Hope you like it... nothing to fancy, but I hope not to bad either :D

  7. Hi This is my entry for the Freighter Wars Contest . When it was announced, I seem an opportunity to build not your regular Technic model and I really enjoyed the experience This model is based on the YT-2400 Outrider,. As you may see, it has some modifications as the color scheme, canons instead turrets and a longer rear of the cockpit (I don't know how it is called) My main goal was built it with only existent Technic parts and make all details with Technic pieces, avoiding System parts as possible. In the end I used a LA, perpendicular connectors, towballs, axles, busshes etc for the details and only 5 tiles and 3 dishes. Also I wanted to create the body an getting the shape using Panels as much as I could to give an uniform, sleek appearance. (The new 3x13 curved panel in black was really useful) Since there is not a room and time due contest for functions, the only one is function is rotating canons using the central vent of the rear as knob. The model was partially built in real life, but I ran out of pieces because it was a side project. Also the color combination was really bad (White and bright green) So decided to finish it on LDD - despite all difficulties of building with Technic on LDD - and then this color combination comes that really pops out and is possible to build in real life. Unfortunately, right know is not possible for my to build it, since a lack so many black panels..... Someday... For now there are some pics/renders . Hope you like it
  8. OK, this pretty cool. The Lego Community Engagement Team is asking readers of Allen Tran's The Brick Fan to offer up ideas for some future "gift-with-purchase" sets. Here is the article and quoted details below: Lego Looking for Ideas for Future Gift-With-Purchase Items
  9. Hi all, I decided to have a go at this competition as it seemed like a laugh, and I had a lot of fun making what I currently have. My idea was to make a vehicle and strap a massive great machine gun sort of thing on it, and sticking it on the back of a truck seems like the perfect idea, right? But a truck with a machine gun on it's own would be rather boring, so I decided to give it adjustable pneumatic suspension, for those tricky bits of terrain it might encounter, and of course slam it right to the ground for that street cred. It's powered by a buggy motor, so it's pretty fast on flat surfaces. Mode 1, extremely low for maximum speed Mode 2, maximum height for off roading purposes! Of course, being hydraulic, the suspension can be at whatever height you want, but this is to prove the point. Now, my favourite part of this suspension is that it acts like the sort you'd find on one of those lowrider cars, and as such, it can pull off crazy moves like this, just for showing off purposes. The truck cab as it stands is still a work in progress, I'm not quite as good at aesthetics as I am at designing the technic part, so bear with me in that department! Here you can see the mechanism, it works with the pneumatic ram, and springs in order to give the desired effect. Tyre omitted for clarity. Apologies for the poor pictures, It's the fault of the camera. For the machine gun which I talk about, this is still all in my mind, however, I want to utilise some form of spinning disc mechanism and accelerate a plate or a technic beam at high velocity that way, but I will keep you all posted on that side of development Hope you all like it! -Ender
  10. This started off as an F1 style race car that could be flipped over and still drive. I wanted it to be manual, but I could not get the mechanism to flip the car to work, so I abandoned that part. Features: HOG Steering connected to drivers steering Rear wheel drive V-16 fake engine Independent suspension on all wheels Extending side panels Spinning blades on front wing Rear wing drops down for defense Side picture: Sides deployed and rear wing down: Video: Sorry about the quality. Video is not my strong point. More pictures can be found in my brickshelf folder, Here.
  11. When I was in high school, we had a little bus; we called it "The Toaster." We had big buses for the large football team and various student "schlepping," but the Toaster was the perfect size for a cross country or soccer team. But, boy was it hot; the short wheelbase and many windows fused shut allowed for virtually no air movement in travel, and it would spend all day baking in the hot Arizona desert. Hence the name. But this bus holds a special place in my heart, and this contest is a great way to visualize my fantasies of the ultimate racing bus. What would it be like to give the bus a stupid big engine, and some sport tires, and make it visually hot? So here we go, a project to idealize my perfect Toaster with some fun features to gain an advantage in a wacky race. Features, all manual HOG Steering Rear Wheel Drive V-12 Fake Engine (Power!) Attacking Side Skirt Bench Seat thrower (because you can't throw children) Emergency Exit Side Door Stop Sign (because sometimes diplomacy is the best option) More to follow...
  12. TECHNIC WACKY WHEELS CONTEST After a fierce battle bots competition it's time for a less serious competition. How about a Virtual Race through LEGO City using Wacky Wheels?! DESCRIPTION The Wacky Wheels competition is loosely based on the 1994 Arcade game by Apogee, which strongly puts the emphasis on fun instead of realism, both in looks and gameplay. Each contestant needs to have a wacky vehicle to participate in the most ludicrous race of the year. And you will be designing and building that vehicle! The first requirement for the vehicle is that it needs to have wheels or treads, since it is a road race! Your vehicle can be anything you want (also a boat, plane, etc), but it needs to have wheels, since it's a driving contest. The second requirement is that it needs to have at least one wacky function besides driving and steering. This function can be anything to gain an advantage in the race. Of course it can also be function to hinder your opponent. Anything goes! Thanks to Erik Leppen for pitching this idea DEADLINE Deadline date is Monday 16th of October, 2017. Contest will be closed on Tuesday 17th of October, OR LATER. Disclaimer: I will close the contest when I see fit and when I have the time to process the results. This can be later than the deadline date. Please don't complain about this not being fair and all. RULES AND REGULATIONS The following section describes the contest specific and general rules and regulations. But before that, please take notice of a simple motto regarding the Eurobricks Contests: CONTESTS ARE FOR FUN! Of course there's competition, but at the end of the day, LEGO is just a hobby and the main goal for each of us is to have fun! CONTEST SPECIFIC RULES AND REGULATIONS Each vehicle needs to have a WACKY NAME (no name, no entry). Each vehicle needs to have at least a WACKY FUNCTION (besides steering and driving). Your vehicle needs to have WHEELS and be able to drive. It can be a plane, boat, etc, but it still needs to drive during the competition. Your vehicle needs to be able to STEER. Only OFFICIAL LEGO PARTS. 3rd party STRINGS, HOSES and RUBBER BANDS are permitted. NO 3rd party tires. There is NO size limit. Model Team style building IS allowed. GENERAL RULES AND REGULATIONS The contest is open to all EB members (also new members).

  14. [MOC] Temse Skyline

    It wasn't until I went to university and only came home in the weekends, I realized how much I love the sight of my hometown of Temse in Belgium. I always try to have a seat to the left of the train, near a big window, especially near sunset. Because when my train crosses the Temse Bridge over the Schelde river, the view is just magnificent and then I know I'm home. [MOC] Temse Skyline by Bert Van Raemdonck, on Flickr You can imagine that on reading the assignment of Rebrick's "Dream Skylines" competition, "Build a Skyline of somewhere close to your heart", I didn't hesitate for a moment on what to build. But I think that choice might have been the only easy part about this contest! Since the creation has to be in the style of the existing LEGO Architecture skylines, I had to come up with several ways to add enough detail and texture at the small scale, and at the same time had to adhere to the maximum size requirements that didn't allow for any overhang. Personally, I also wanted to create something that's completely buildable in real life with solid connections and only existing part/color combinations - because who knows, maybe one day my town will be interested to have one of these for real? - which caused me a lot of headaches. All of that made for a build time of nearly a month for this seemingly small creation (that still contains close to 800 bricks). After all that building, I managed to cram in most (though not everything) of what I wanted to represent. From left to right, you have the Boelwerf Crane, the Onze Lieve Vrouwe Church, the Old Town Hall and the Temse Bridge. If you're interested in more information about those individual buildings, just keep reading! [MOC] Temse Skyline - Onze Lieve Vrouwe Church by Bert Van Raemdonck, on Flickr The Onze Lieve Vrouwe Church is the defining building of the Temse skyline, and rightfully so. The original dates back to the 770's, erected by the holy Amelberga, the patron saint of the parish. It is believed that she fled her suitor, a powerful man, because she wanted to dedicate her life to God. And when she was cut of by the Schelde river, a giant sturgeon appeared from the water to lead her safely to the other side, where she erected the church out of gratitude. To this day, we have a yearly procession to celebrate her. Of course the church was rebuilt several times, and I depicted it as it appears today,the way I know her inside and out because this is the building where I go to mass and have gotten to know a lot of wonderful people. I love this building so much that I actually tried to build it several times before this contest. However, i always got stuck on the iconic but hard to capture shape of the clocktower. However, having to work at this small scale forced a certain size of the tower on me, which enabled me to have a more focused problem. When eventually I found out that the classic medieval helmet worked perfectly to capture the bell shape of the bottom part of the roof, and that's what really kicked of this entire creation. Since I couldn't connect anything to the helmet, I had to work with an external support, but luckily it doesn't get in the way of appreciating the creation too much. I also had a lot of variations for the rest of the tower, but in the end this version with the notches nicely corresponding to features on the actual building made it, also thanks to the input of my family on this issue! From there on, it was mostly a lot of complicated SNOT work to let the windows and the buttresses work, but it gave a nicely textured result. To top it all of, I included the statue of the Blessed Priest Poppe, who is also a central figure in our community. [MOC] Temse Skyline - Old Town Hall by Bert Van Raemdonck, on Flickr Up until a couple of years ago, this was the administrative heart of Temse, but now everything apart from some ceremonies has moved to the new administrative center in a modern building for which I didn't have enough space to include... Still, it's a beautiful building from the beginning of the twentieth century that actually stands on the place where once the home of my ancestors stood. One of the ceremonies being held here, is the memorial of two of my ancestors, who became famous after allegedly dying in each other's arms during the first World War, becoming a symbol for love between brothers. This year, it was exactly 100 years ago that happened, so there was a ceremony on this very fitting location, where my sister and I also read some poems one of the two brothers wrote. Truly a special experience! Building this also was a special experience if you can call it like that, because of all of the tricky SNOT fitted into a really tiny package. I'm really happy with how the roof turned out. And while it's a pity that the spires of the main tower have to be held in place by a rubber band, at least the official LEGO rubber band with the right size had the right color as well. [MOC] Temse Skyline - Boelwerf Crane by Bert Van Raemdonck, on Flickr I was born just half a year too late... If I would have been born sooner, I would have seen the Boelwerf working with my own eyes. It was a big shipyard along the Schelde river just outside of the town which was the economic heart of Temse for quite some time, with the biggest ship of the world at that time being build there. My grandfather was one of the employees there working among the docks, the cranes, the machine shops... Whenever I see pictures of those periods, I begin drooling and dreaming about that time that I sadly never knew. Because right now, where once the Boelwerf was, now a lot of new apartment buildings, houses, shops like my hairdresser and the new administrative building stand. The only thing that remembers the glory days is a beautiful and huge crane that never actually belonged to the Boelwerf but became an essential part of our skyline, and a couple of poles in the water and a hidden dry dock. Building this one actually went surprisingly easy when compared to the previous two buildings, and I'm pretty satisfied with how I managed to maintain the spindly look of the construction and the realistic angles of the supports, realized by putting technic pints over minifig antennas. The difficult part about this build actually was keeping it within the prescribed size limits of the build without overhang. That's why I had to sacrifice one of the three wrenches in the back, but luckily it isn't as noticeable. And nice to know: the crane can actually swivel around! [MOC] Temse Skyline - Back of the Box by Bert Van Raemdonck, on Flickr I really had a lot of fun making the renders for this creation, trying to match the box art from the official skyline sets as well as possible, and I'm very happy with the results that accomplish my goal. Just ask if you want to know more about the rendering process. This is also a place to discuss the final building: the Temse Bridge on the far right. Although it doesn't look like it from the build, this was with its 365 meter for a long time the longest bridge over water in Belgium, and also one of the prettiest, in my opinion! The original actually was designed by Gustave Eiffel (yes, thát Eiffel!), but that one was deliberately blown up during the second World War. In 2009, a second bridge next to it opened to allow for more traffic to pass because it was getting a bit problematic. That bridge is actually nine meters longer than the original one, so in Temse we have just one, but the two longest bridges over water in Belgium! Giving the bridge the skeletal look was impossible to do on this scale, but the bottom of the plates actually still gives a nice texture to it. I couldn't make it as long as I wanted, and I had to place it at an angle, just to stay within the size requirements, so in reality it is of course way longer. Also, the 2009 bridge didn't fit on even though I created a model for it. But then again, that bridge pales in comparison to the older one. In the end, I'm very pleased with the result, so it was worth all of the work. It gives me the same feeling as when I see the real skyline from the train on a Friday evening, the feeling of coming home. Which is really nice that I'm on a two month internship in South-Korea! Thanks for looking, and I hope you enjoy your home as much as I do! _________________ The digital file (LDD)
  15. "The rebels forces on the home planet of the Gand have proved to be quite a nuisance to the lesser ranks of the empire. No longer. The deceased 'artist' known as Thrulsis spent the last 10 years of his life as an employee of various local governments on the planet. His purpose was to beautify the cities. This was all the records indicated when the planet was placed under more stringent imperial power 2 years ago. However, there is a hidden past to this artist. Every one of his pieces was actually a model of a building of other structure he designed during a past career as an Architect. Imperial obtained records conveyed none of this, and for a reason. Many of the structures he designed were in use by rebels at one stage or another. And I suspect one of his designs, found here in a museum in the core, to be a prison. And not just any prison, a prison which can hold force sensitives. It was likely intended for insane findsmen, but I suspect right now it holds a missing inquisitor." Later... "The sculpture was indeed another hidden structure, deep within a cave system. However, the contents yielded only a few suicidal rebels and another model of Thrulsis'. It would seem they attempt to throw us off permanently with this chase of models and deception. It will not. I am more persistent than their best findsman, for deception is but a delay."
  16. PM2X Explorer

    My first entry for the Color It Blacktron Contest over on Flickr. The idea is to make any build you want, whether that be in Castle, Pirates, Space, Town, etc. but build it using Blacktron colors. This was quite enjoyable to make, and started with the cockpit, when I realized the tracks would hold them together pretty well. It took a little patience to get the driver/controls in, but I like how it turned out. More pictures on Brickbuilt Thanks for looking, C&C welcome

  20. [BRAINS] Cat D - The Wild Bunch

    Howler's Gulch was once a booming coal town, but when the miners dug too deep, they released an unthinkable threat that spread through the desert like wildfire. Now the few remaining pockets of survivors roam the desert in search of water and shelter, their numbers diminishing every day. Charles Livingstone- Before the plague, he was a respected Civil War veteran, but his first encounter with the undead left him without his legs and his trachea. Thanks to the work of a brilliant doctor/mechanic from San Francisco, he now lives relatively comfortably as the leader of a ragtag group of survivors. His favorite tea is Earl Grey, and his hobby is mowing down zombies with his steam-powered wheelchair while laughing maniacally. The Man in Black- No one knows much about this character, other than that he's a man who wears black. He's a heck of a shot, and that's all that matters to the other survivors. Jack the Monkey- Jack was bitten by one of the undead while working as a trained coal hauler monkey, but rather than become undead himself, he turned into a fully sentient monkey/zombie hybrid. The same doctor who fixed up Livingstone fitted him with drills for arms, which he uses to tear through hordes of zombies like butter. Butch Grimlow- Jack's owner and a former coal miner, Butch now applies his pick-axing skills to zombies instead of rocks. He keeps the heads of his victims in a knapsack strapped to his back, and the others are afraid to ask him what he plans on doing with them. Calamity Ann- Ann is a tough-as-nails sniper and former train robber who lost all of the flesh on her right arm in a previous encounter. No one on the team has had the nerve to ask her how it happened, and she acts like she doesn't even notice it.

IMG_2164 The cooky old crank Artric had finally finished his device to rid Liverpoolium of the plague of the creeping carcasses, unfortunately for him when testing what solution to fill his sky sprayer with his zombie pesticide actually spread the scrooge and got him bitten by one of the roaming dead.

  22. After the last few months, my family has learned that nowhere is truly safe. Allies become enemies. Walls are breached. Simple illnesses become death sentences. Anyone who thinks he is safe is kidding himself. I remember the last time we felt safe. That was before my daughter was an only child. Full scene by BillyBricks, on Flickr Recently, we have found a rhythm in moving from place to place in the city. After our apartment complex fell to the dead, we managed to escape into the streets, foraging as we went and finding shelter that could last for a few days before having to move on. Although the dead seem to constantly stalk us, it's the living we must watch out for. If we thought people were self-serving before, we were mistaken. Crashed Car by BillyBricks, on Flickr Gunshots by BillyBricks, on Flickr Watching as my husband and daughter get what sleep they can, I remember when keeping my family safe meant buying the right foods, watching for suspicious characters at the playground, and going to the doctor annually. Those memories are already starting to fade. Now, they are replaced with frantic running and desperate attempts to find supplies to keep going for one more day. Female Survivor by BillyBricks, on Flickr As I carve this new spear, I almost start to relax. Two days ago we found this deli, which must not have been heavily looted because there were stacks of canned food and bottled water hidden in a corner in the basement. We've been here ever since, creating some simple defenses and even taking the time to hang a sheet so we can have a "private" toilet. Full Basement by BillyBricks, on Flickr It's times like these when I have to remind myself that letting my guard down can mean the difference between being hungry and tired tomorrow or never seeing that new dawn. I...What's that noise? It sounds like our trap upstairs worked. Speared Zombie by BillyBricks, on Flickr That will be something to deal with tomorrow. Another problem, and here I was feeling safe for a moment. But I have to remember, in the apocalypse, safe is a four letter word. Basement in dark by BillyBricks, on Flickr This is my first time entering a contest on Eurobricks. I have lurked on this site for months, enjoying the pictures of wonderful creations that others put up every day. I've only been back in LEGO for about a year now, and I've been building MOCs for less than half that time. It's probably pretty obvious that I am a newbie thanks to the fact that I decided to build three full walls on my bottom level (dark much?) and I'm using the camera on my phone to take pictures. I built this MOC so I could easily take the two levels apart, so at least that planning worked out. Coming up with an idea for the contest and working toward the deadline were both fun. I loved seeing all of the other entries, as well!
  23. [Brains] Cat A - Last Bridge to Safety

    It was over. With a screech, we managed to stop the car going into the hole where the bridge used to be. There was no way of escaping, now. Karen jumped out of the car, saying, "there's no use sitting there!" I got out, and looked over the water - but there was nowhere to swim to without zombies. The helicopters had dropped supplies and flyers on getting to safety, but with no bridge and no car we weren't ever getting there. The groan got louder, as more zombies joined the horde before us. "I'm not going down without a fight," said Karen, and in that moment I loved her more than ever. I pulled the shovel out of the car, and braced myself. (Contest pic) Hey everyone, had a lot of fun making this. I have a silly number of zombies from another project - the board game Dead of Winter with Lego minifigs instead of standees. That made this contest a no-brainer, so I tried to make a 'classic' zombie scene where the "horde" aspect is in full force. That's how I came up with the broken bridge and the no-hope story. Also, I'm just really pleased with how the 4X4 came out. Full overview: Scene is 48x40.
  24. [Brains] Cat C - Zombie Destruction Rover

    In the year 2036, a virus has erupted and is destroying the world's population, turning them into zombies. There aren't many people left, but there have been huge advances in artificial intelligence. The only solution? Equip huge self-driving vehicles with this AI to destroy the zombies, and transport any humans it finds. Scientists work with the few remaining materials to create these, and call them Zombie Destruction Rovers, aka Z.D.R.s. They are programed to obliterate any zombie they encounter. It has: 4 Wheel Steering 2 guns with a large range of movement 2 sliding guns with a large range of movement Large tires for running over zombies Self-driving capabilities A large space for Survivors to go inside Edited picture.^^
  25. Hello everyone, there is a contest, that comes around annually, and never ceases to impress, both with the fun from the participants, the difficulty deciding for the judges, and even the amazement of the viewers, of the the Middle Earth builds posted in the 5th annual Middle Earth Lego Olympics on Mocpages. I had the honor of helping set up the contest this year, and I am very excited for what is ahead, since the Mocpages forum is dying off, and we still want to have a competition that is fun, and challenging, we are advertising this contest on all other sites so that it can meet the expectations of the moccers on Mocpages. There will be six rounds, of different Middle Earth related such as Poems/Songs in the books and/or movies. Round 1 will be a free for all, which will be judges by 6 judges on a 1-10 point scale where the top 32 contestants will move on to the next round, then, from rounds 2-6, the rounds will be a one-on-one moc-off, where contestants will face off, and the judges will choose whose build they think is better. Please check out the contest by clicking the link below the banner: Mocpages Group Link!!!!!! Thanks so much for viewing, I hope you choose to compete, view, or donate to this great contest, no matter what you do, I hope you come along for the ride to Mordor! To God be the Glory!!!
