One lucky winner will win a 21311 Voltron Defender of the Universe set signed by the LEGO Designer, Voltron merchandise and a $500 USD shopping spree on LEGO.com.

Submissions may be in either physical bricks or by using a digital building tool such as LEGO Digital Designer. 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 entry must depict only one of the locations in which one of the Voltron Lions was found. You’re welcome to submit multiple entries however.
Entries must only contain LEGO elements (no DUPLO elements). These LEGO elements must be genuine (not cut, glued, drawn on or otherwise modified).
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. This also includes LEGO IPs such as LEGO Friends, LEGO NEXO Knights, LEGO Elves etc.
Please only use generic LEGO Minifigures such as from the LEGO Collectable Minifigure series, LEGO City, or LEGO Creator.
No custom artwork (stickers/prints). Entries may only contain official LEGO-made stickers or printed elements from non-licensed sets.
Keep your model generic (unless related to Voltron). Entries consisting of or referencing any existing third-party work or creation, with the exception of Voltron, or infringements of any third party intellectual property right will not be eligible for the contest (this includes references to Intellectual Property such as Star Wars, NASA, DC/Marvel Super Heroes and more).
You must be the original creator of all creative work you submit (the model, images, photographs, description text, etc.) and you must have the exclusive right to submit your model to this LEGO Ideas Contest. You may not submit a model made by, or on behalf of, someone else.
Entries must be new creations and not previously posted online or submitted to any other contest.
Entry Quality Standards
You may submit digital entries using LEGO Digital Designer, which is available for download via this link free of charge. Any entries made in LEGO Digital Designer should not show the baseplate from build mode. You may also create digital entries using third-party LEGO CAD software.
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.
Please do not include people or limbs in photos you submit. Photos containing such will be removed.
Entries containing defamatory or degrading elements will not be eligible for the contest.
Any cheating or harassment of other participants will result in disqualification from the contest.

The Fine Print
You must be at least 13 years old to participate and enter.
You may submit multiple entries to the contest, but only one entry per person will be considered when winners are selected. This means you cannot win as a Runner Up and as the Grand Prize winner with two different entries.

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