LEGO Ideas is launching a unique new competition today that will allow builders to one day add an official Dungeons & Dragons set to their collections. Allowing creatures to submit their own designs of iconic D&D creatures and characters, the contest celebrates 50 years of the popular role-playing game. So whether you’re a dungeon master yourself or recently got in on the action thanks to Stranger Things, builders will be able to reinvent their favorites for a chance to turn their models into an official set.
LEGO Ideas Dungeons & Dragons
Alongside its usual pipeline of turning fan-submitted creations into official sets through the 10,000 Fan Model, LEGO Ideas also features periodic competitions for builders to submit themed-specific models. We just saw the Ray the Castaway set revealed last month as well as the Cosmic Cardboard Adventures set arrive thanks to these events, and now the next contest is live.
Celebrating 50 years of Dungeons & Dragons, the new LEGO Ideas competition will give builders the chance to craft some of their favorite creatures and more for a chance to turn their models into an official set.
There are a few rules this time around to help guide builders in their designs. These are all things you would expect from a LEGO collaboration with an existing brand and really shouldn’t limit creativity too much. All of these criteria should be applied to items in the Dungeons & Dragons lore.
- Detailed display model of your favorite character or monster
- Functional display models for players / dungeon masters
- Ultimate build with customizable elements
In partnership with Wizards of the Coast, the LEGO Ideas team will then ask a jury to choose a winner from all of the submissions. There will be fan voting ahead of time to help narrow down the results, giving builders the chance to decide which kits will potentially end up on store shelves.
The competition will officially kick off next month on November 28, giving builders several weeks to start making their creations. You’ll need to submit the model by this deadline, with fan voting then starting until December 12, 2022. Then the LEGO Ideas team will get to work choosing the Dungeons & Dragons kit. You can get all the details on what to expect from the contest herewaiting.
