Grand Prize is a LEGO® Monster Fighters Haunted House signed by LEGO designer Adam Grabowski and a LEGO® Monster Fighters Exclusive Grab Bag — so that’s pretty cool!
I also asked ReBrick editor-in-chief Signe for a bit of clarification on the “Entries must only contain elements from the LEGO® collection” caveat, and here’s what she had to say:
- Q: Do the films have to contain things specifically from the “Monster Fighters” play theme?
- A: No, we just think the Monster Fighters theme is great for Halloween, and that’s why we chose to highlight that theme.
- Q: Or does it mean that the films in general must use only LEGO parts (and nothing from competing brands)?
- A: Yes, exactly. No competing brands. And don’t dress up in homemade Halloween Minifigure costumes, it’s only LEGO products you can use in the film ;o)
- Q: Can people make films using any LEGO sets or parts they want, as long as the topic is appropriately spooky?
- A: You can use any part/set from the LEGO collection you want. We want a Halloween film, so spooky with a twist of fun.
So there you go, guys and gals! Better get building… the contest is only open until October 29th!
