    Only just over half as big as the Chima prize, but there's now a similar Lego City vehicle prize according to a leaflet that I found today, though the website mentioned doesn't appear to exist yet. 21 sets altogether from 2015 and 2016.



    You scared me, I thought they announced the winners. I still wanna know if I won. 

    This is interesting, though. I can draw, but I dunno... 
    You mean the contest not over yet? It's been like 6 months?

    The little bit of OCD within me is slightly bothered how its 10004 pieces and not 10000 pieces.
    25 medium to large sets would have 5 to 10+ extra pieces each, so we're really looking at a figure of 10200 or so :)

    It ended in October, I entered by then. Still no announcement of winners.

    The winners have been announced! Unfortunately I didn't win.

    Looks like they only award prizes to the kids, there's not a single winner above the age of 14!

    Also, somehow I had a feeling the models were done with the help of adults...

    Not sure why people find it so implausible kids built that stuff themselves - The Lego Ideas Book has a section by an 18-year-old builder doing amazing stuff, and presumably he didn't get those skills overnight. To say nothing of the amount of spare time you have at 11 - 14 to experiment with techniques and dream up ideas...

    I'm not fussed about the age of the winners, in fact that is a good thing.  I'm upset that all the winners clearly already have a truck load of LEGO, so therefore aren't as much in need of the sets.  Plenty of kids out there that would have built bases with all their Lego and it didn't get a look in due to the size apparently, pretty disappointing.

    Congrats to all the winners.  They obviously put a lot of work into their creations.  Good for them!

    I'm pretty impressed with the winning entries, especially considering the age of the builders, but I can believe that those builders could have created those entries without too much help from their parents.

    There are certainly little kids that can do amazing things.  

    However... I'm a trust, but verify kind of guy.

    Besides, I'd much prefer this type of give-away geared towards kids.  They're the ones that make everything else possible.  

    (I'm still frosted about the Bat-Pod Giveaway.)

    And what if the parents did help? I think it's great that parents play with their kids. It should be stimulated.
