LEGO IDEAS recently revealed the winners of their Moments in Space contest.This was basically a contest that was looking for ideas from the public for their next Gift with Purchase design in 2019.
We’re looking for the next exclusive LEGO Gift with Purchase set, for our LEGO Stores, LEGOLAND, LEGOLAND Discovery Centers as well as Shop.LEGO.com. We need your help. Show us your best small and mid-sized space designs in this contest and your entry has the opportunity to be adapted into a Gift with Purchase set in 2019!
We invite you to show us your LEGO moment in space! Use your imagination to create the ultimate space model – make it as sci-fi or realistic as you wish, just stay within a base of 16 x 16 studs. One lucky winner has the chance to have their entry transformed into a new Gift with Purchase set, and will win a collection of past exclusive Gift with Purchase sets!
The Grand Prize winner (who will have his/her design adapted intoa Gift with Purchase set in 2019) is mjsmiley with the submission Cosmic Rocket Ride! (Coin Operated). This is a real gem of a submission and here’s what the judges had to say about the entry.
