Update (February 22, 10:40 am): At the turn of the year we drew your attention to the Ideas competition “We love sports!”. The contest is now in the second phase. The ten best ideas were selected from the many submissions, and you can vote on them until February 25th. We introduce you to the candidates.
The Ideas team had to sift through a total of 877 suggestions over the past few weeks in order to find the ten best ideas. Now you can vote for your favorites in the fan voting. The fan voting continues until February 25 and the winner is expected to be announced on March 4th. Regardless of the fan voting, LEGO will check whether one of the candidates will have what it takes to make the next set of ideas. This decision should be communicated with the next review results.
These designs are available:
Original post (January 3): In the days between Christmas and New Year we had shifted down a gear. We almost missed the tender for an interesting Ideas Contest (competition). Normally we rarely report on the contests, but there is one special feature here.
On December 28th, the Ideas team published the call for entries for the next Ideas Contest. By Blogpost was informed about the general data of the new competition “We love Sports!”. Ideas users can upload their ideas on specific topics at the events that take place regularly. The winners usually receive small but fine prizes. Finally, the Star Wars X-Mas-Contest for some excitement because some thought the contest entry picture was the next LEGO employee X-Mas set 2020.
This time, however, it is worth taking a look at the conditions, because there we find a surprise: Similar to the contest “Music to our ears!“There will be a two-part assessment. On the one hand, the Ideas team will define a preselection of ideas that users can then vote on in a fan voting.
In a second review can it comes to that from this competition a new official ideas set emerges. At the “Music to our ears” contest last September, Ideas decided on the “Legendary Stratocaster“By TOMELL as the first Ideas Contest special set.
If you want to take part in the competition, you can make your contribution until February 8, 2021 at 12:00 p.m. on the Ideas page. The exact Contest conditions of participation can be found in the blog post.
The prizes are also impressive, because the winner of the fan voting receives:
- Your own LEGO trophy

- Attribution and introduction of the fan designer in the Ideas set materials (instructions)
How does it go from here?
The Ideas team first collects all submissions. These must be submitted no later than February 8, 12:00 noon Danish time. However, Ideas already advises you to upload the post two to three days earlier if you have any questions.
In the period from February 8th to 15th, the jury will determine the 10 best ideas from all submissions. The Ideas users can then vote on the winner in the fan voting. The voting is expected to last until February 25th and the winners of the fan voting are to be announced on March 4th.
All drafts that have qualified for fan voting will be checked for possible implementation by the Ideas team, regardless of the vote. In the best case can So another set of ideas can be selected from the TOP 10. The decision, ob if we receive another additional set of ideas, this will take place when the next regular review decisions are announced. In our estimation, that should be between the end of May and mid-June.
