This phase is currently closed to further activity.
Do you ever just feel the need to add something to an existing LEGO set to make it even cooler? Now we invite you to use your creative skills by building an add-on to the A-model of any 2018 LEGO Creator 3in1 product. Your add-on can be small or big, as long as it gives the product the ultimate coolness! Here is the chance to activate your LEGO bin and think outside of the box.
One Grand Prize winner will get the full 2018 LEGO Creator 3in1 assortment, selected 2017 LEGO Creator 3in1 sets, a LEGO Creator 3in1 t-shirt as well as a LEGO Creator 3in1 frame created by a LEGO designer and a winner’s certificate.
So, start building that Add-on to get your hands on these awesome prizes!

Please include a note in your description saying what 2018 LEGO Creator 3in1 product you have added your build to, or would like to add this to
Submissions may be in either physical bricks or by using a digital building tool such as LEGO Digital Designer. However, since LEGO Creator 3in1 is all about building and rebuilding, the LEGO Creator team encourages you to build your entry with physical bricks. You’re welcome to use image editing tools, such as Photoshop, to enhance your photos/presentation.
Take up to five photos of your creation and submit them to the contest. Make sure to show off your model from all angles and any particular features or functions of your creation.
Add a title and a short description.
Upload your entry to the contest using the blue Submit Your Entry button on this page.
Your add-on may contain LEGO System elements or LEGO Technic elements (no LEGO DUPLO elements), however the LEGO Creator team encourages you to only use LEGO System elements to match the LEGO Creator 3in1 theme. The LEGO elements must be genuine (not cut, glued, drawn on or otherwise modified).
Each entry must only include one add-on item, however you may submit multiple entries
Entries may not include licensed or copyrighted elements, stickers/printed elements and minifigures. This means all entries containing elements from third party Intellectual Properties (IPs), including licensed characters from Marvel and DC Super Heroes, Star Wars, Harry Potter, Ferrari, etc. will not be eligible for the contest.

You may use photo editing software and add visual effects to photos of your entry. If you use visual effects of any kind, please do ensure that your model is still clearly visible.
Entries containing photos that are too dark or blurry will be removed from the contest. To ensure easy judging of your entry, we recommend taking several pictures on a neutral background free from background clutter, with your model well framed and shown from different angles.

The Fine Print

Winners will be announced on LEGO Ideas when all winners have returned the signed Winner’s Certification Documents.
