We have a birthday to celebrate, and a special one for that matter.
40 years of the LEGO Minifigure as we know it, and we feel fine.
So, what is this all about?
The LEGO Group (TLG) has asked us to throw a little party with all of you together and get creative and celebrate the awesome birthday of the LEGO Minifigure by getting our gear out and capture that awesome celebration any way you want and share it on our favorite social media of choice, Instagram.
And we have a fantastic super price to give away (special thanks to TLG) and some smaller runner up prices for playing along.
The theme is all about “It’s PARTY time”
Original content created by you, for this celebration.
Only new work submissions after April 15th.
LEGO only, and the main subject needs to be the LEGO Minifigure.
But it does not need to be one of the original CMF Series 18. Using the original 40-year-old policeman will get you some extra brownie points with one jury member for sure.
You may upload as many images as you want, but remember, quality gets you a lot of brownie points too, and quantity is not giving bonus points.
We like quality over quantity but there is no hard limit as such.
Every image needs to be tagged to @stuckinplastic #sipgoes18 and #series18 in the original message of the body (so not the comments) in order to qualify for the SiP Party.
By tagging and participating into this party (and yep, contest) you agree that your images can be used by The LEGO Group and Stuck In Plastic for celebrating the birthday of the LEGO minifigure while we will of course credit the original creator.
The party runs from April 16th until May 21st.
The SiP Jury will nominate the winner in alignment with TLG and the jury decision is final.
The LEGO Group will provide the first price directly to the winner.
SiP will handle the runner-up nominations depending on how many stretch goals or perks you all managed to unlock.
The First Price
1 box (60 bags) of 71021 LEGO Minifigures Series 18, a $200 USD shopping spree on LEGO.com and an exclusive Series 18 poster signed by the LEGO Minifigures designer. WooT!
The Runner-Up Perks.
We will run this as an ongoing unlock challenge based on all the quality entries you will be submitting, so this one is there to not wait until the last minute, but prices will be given at the end.
To unlock the first perk or stretch goal we need at least twenty individual partygoers to the party. Once we reached this first goal, we throw in a full series of 16 Minifig Series 18 (without the policeman), for the next finalist when we wrap up the party.
We have a few more stretch goals or funny perks in mind, with equally fun prices, but one step at the time.
So let’s get some fun on the dance floor first …
Any questions, just ask below in the comments or on IG.
Let the Party begin.
