The Like a Boss contest sponsored by The Brothers Brick to build a video game boss recently concluded with some spectacular entries. The winners received their share of a $500 prize pool donated by our blog. Check out who won and see all the entries on Flickr.
Jameson Gagnepain clearly has a surplus of those ever-so-useful LEGO game dice. He’s put them to good use for his entry into the Like a Boss contest, resulting in this fabulous display of impossible Tetris:
For an added touch, he’s done a stop-motion version complete with the frustrating anticipation of not getting the particular shape that you need:
ShareburG‘s entry for the Colossal Castle Contest over at Classic Castle makes me smile. So many of the details just stand out to me. I like the rounded tower; the little cart with barrels is pretty fabulous, too.
The Colossal Castle Contest is one of the longest running Lego fan contests in history, if not the longest, and it is celebrating its tenth year! There are a plethora of prizes, including vintage sets, books from No Starch Press and Skyhorse Publishing, as well as custom products from altBricks, BrickArms and BrickWarriors.
The categories cover a wide range of subjects, sizes and building styles. If you have never entered before, get over to Classic Castle, get registered and get BUILDING!
Looking for a challenge and a share from a $500 prize pool donated by The Brothers Brick? I’m excited to announce the “Like a Boss” Contest! Build what you think is a tough-to-beat video game boss or one from an existing game. Head on over to The Lego Contest Network for details and how to enter.
I just received an exciting announcement from LEGO. It seems that their design team is accepting submissions for ideas in something like a contest. It seems like one person will get to work with LEGO Designers to develop their idea into an official theme.
We scored a total of 11 entries in our semi-finalist round. These were the other 8 semi-finalists:
4th- Halfbeak’s Moonrock 1 with 157/200
5th- Ted Andes’ Gladius with 156/200
6th- Fernald’s Solid Fuel Starfighter with 155/200
7th- xiei22′s Pilum with 153/200
8th Brainbikerider’s Chernobog with 152/200
9th Lego Junkie’s Soyuz 7-K12 with 150/200
10th madLEGOman’s Spaceghost with 149/200
11th bloei’s ISF Zodiac with 143/200
To say that the judges were impressed with both the quantity, but more importantly the QUALITY of the entries is an understatement. You didn’t make it easy on any of us to judge, but you also all made it extremely fun to watch!
So a huge CONGRATS to the winners, and also to all that participated! Also a giant thank you to all the judges, and especially Stijn and More Bricks for the prize sponsorship!
Peter and I have already talked about this becoming a recurring contest…it was just an absolute hoot to be a part of!
