To celebrate the coming relaunch of LEGO® Bionicle®, The LEGO Group is teaming up with the LEGO fansites BZPower, RusBionicle, Bionifigs, Pockyland, EuroBricks and our own LEGO ReBrick to conduct an epic building competition where a winner from each site will go head-to-head for the grand prize of a 14 karat gold Bionicle mask pictured below!

We invite you to build the baddest villain you can imagine, using a minimum of 75% LEGO® Constraction/Technic bricks and no more than 25% LEGO System bricks.  You can use LEGO Digital Designer (LDD) if you lack the necessary parts, but we will only accept rendered versions of LDD files.

You can enter as many villains as you want, and can enter on multiple sites if you choose.

The winner on each site will win the 6 new Bionicle heroes, signed by the designer. 2nd prize on each site will be 3 sets and 3rd prize will be 1 set.

The competition will begin October 20, 2014, 12 p.m. CEST and ends December 1, 2014, 12 p.m. CET. If you’re not sure what time zone you’re in, here’s a time zone converter.
