Build to Win

Build to Win

The time has come for another True North Bricks giveaway! This giveaway is a little different from some of our previous ones. How do you enter? Why, you have to build to win, of course! This time, I have designed a custom build, or MOC (My Own Creation) as we call them in the AFOL (adult fan of LEGO®) community. It’s a little robot consisting of 24 common elements. You have to replicate the build and then make it your own. You can simply add accessories, alter part of the build, or build a scene around it. Then, tell me you’re build’s story!

The Build To Win Giveaway Ends

Follow the build instructions, customize, and enter!

What is up for grabs, you ask? The entire Minifigures Series 23 collection. That’s right, you read correctly. You might win a complete set of 12 minifigures from series 23. These are sealed packages, never opened. The LEGO® Group sent me a whole box to review, and this is one of the three complete sets in the box. I opened the other two sets, and felt all the bags in this one using the tips in my feel guide. Consequently, I’m relatively certain the collection is complete. With that said, the prize is what it is. You can win 12 unopened blindbags from Series 23.

You can also build a scene for your robot to help tell your story! Here’s my construction site safety bot. He makes sure all minifigures are safe on the job site 🙂
