2018 building contest - April: Lester's Travels

TheOriginalSimonBTheOriginalSimonB Felixstowe Member Posts: 1,505
Another month, another chance to get those creative juices flowing...

As we know from Series 18, the minifigures are throwing an anniversary party in Billund and Lester has been invited.  But how is he going to get there?

He has to get from London to Billund, so your mission this month is to help him on his way.  You can build whatever you like so long as it relates to his journey.  A brick built map, a vehicle to get him all (or part of the way), vignettes from different parts of the trip, his passport photo, tickets...  Whatever idea grabs you.

Hopefully there will be something to suit every style of builder and we will see lots of different entries.

The Rules:

As usual, this should be a new creation and not something you have posted online before.

Size does not matter this month, so long as you have time to finish your entry by the end of April.

You do not have to own a Lester figure to enter - he doesn't need to feature in the entry (especially if you don't want to build in mini-figure scale) or stand-ins are just fine.

Max two pictures per entry (but feel free to link to others hosted off-site).

Multiple entries allowed, but each to its own post please.

I will announce the winner as early into November May as I can...  Obviously the more entries we see the longer it will take me to judge.

The prize will depend on the winning entry and what the winner happens to own already (keep those "owned by" lists on the main site up to date folks!) but suffice it say that if you don't already have him there will be a Lester available...

Good luck, and have fun building.

    ^ I like how you did the cliffs, simple yet effective!

    Will definitely be taking part now that the Easter hols are almost over.

    Just a heads up as I was browsing last night then saw this thread today: For anyone who doesn't have a Lester he's available at bricks and pieces, minus his face(good enough for me).

    Last day for any late entries...

    Imperial TIE Mech. Used mostly parts from Yoda’s Starfighter along with some others. More pics here:

    I know I'm not in the contest, but, umm, is Lester wearing the Stormtrooper outfit?
  • TheLegoMaster35TheLegoMaster35 OH, USAMember Posts: 254
    Don’t have a Lester... wish I did though.

    @snowhitie, that's so cute. I would love to see the finished design :)
  • snowhitiesnowhitie BelgiumMember Posts: 2,981
    @Pebbles thanks! I'll definitely finish it, I just ran out of April and wanted to at least share what I had.
  • TheOriginalSimonBTheOriginalSimonB Felixstowe Member Posts: 1,505
    Some great stuff here.  I will ruminate over the next day or so and let you all know the winner when my mind is made up.

    Thank you for the lovely comments and for letting me be a part of your brilliant competition. Well done to all the other entries and congrats to the winner. :D
  • PebblesPebbles EnglandMember Posts: 173

    So, lovely entries all, thank you. And the winner has to be @Pebbles for Ms Poppins for great curves on the basket. So drop me a pm with your details and I’ll rustle up a prize...
    Oh my goodness

    @the_creative_box smuggling sets home, lots of the builds were much roomier than mine, maybe I should have added an extra basket to stash all the Lego goodies :)

    ^The moment I saw your Tie Mech I thought of a Big Daddy in Bioshock
