Celebrate Japanese culture and win big with this official Lego-building competition

Lego Japanese Competition Prizes

Think your Lego building skills are up to scratch? Then why not enter Lego’s new competition and win a bundle of eight Lego sets, with a total value of over £450. The competition has been launched to celebrate Lego’s new Lego Icons Tranquil Garden and Himeji Castle sets, both of which are available now.

So how do you win? You’ve got to create a display or model that celebrates both Japanese culture and tranquillity. Sorry, Yakuza/Like a Dragon fans, we’re sure your Kiryu Kazuma bike brawl diorama looks great but it’s not going to be eligible for entry.

You can find the full rules here and you’ll be happy to learn that entry doesn’t immediately give Lego all rights to your creation. But there are a few points worth, er, pointing out.

  • Your creation can’t make use of glue, nor can pieces be cut.
  • It mustn’t have been displayed anywhere else online.
  • You can submit digital entries made using Lego Bricklink Studio or third party Lego CAD software.
  • It can’t contain any copyrighted images or minifigures, eg no NASA minifigs

The second point is perhaps the most salient. The exact words used are “Entries must be new creations for this challenge and not previously posted online or submitted to any other challenge.” So if you’ve already posted a creation online, even if it’s just to Twitter or your blog, it’s ineligible.

The grand prize (there are no runner up prizes) is as follows:

  • 10315 – Tranquil Garden
  • 21060 – Himeji Castle
  • 10311 – Orchid
  • 10313 – Wildflower Bouquet 
  • 31208 – Hokusai – The Great Wave
  • 10281 – Bonsai Tree
  • 76917 – 2 Fast 2 Furious Nissan Skyline GT-R (R34)
  • 76901 – Toyota GR Supra

You’ve got just under a month to enter, with the competition closing on September 19th, 2023 at 6:00 a.m. EST. If you think your Lego building skills are up to it, you can find out how to enter here. Good luck!

After relegating my Lego to the loft, many years ago, I've regained my interest in these plastics bricks, partly because today's sets seem so, so much cooler than when I was a kid. Though I'm still reluctant to spend three figures on a single set.
