Summer Building Competition 2015!

Lego Competition

The 2015 Competition has now finished.

Congratulations to the winners and thank you to all who entered!

See you soon, TLCB Team

Build the Elves a Vehicle!

Someone (possibly these guys) tipped off the animal welfare officers that there may have been mistreatment of animals here at TLCB Towers. How that’s possible with fictional mythical creatures we don’t know, but the short of it is we need to prove that we look after the little sods that make up our unpaid workforce. And so… The Lego Car Blog Elves are about to get their Christmas and Birthdays all rolled into one!

To get us off the hook with the authorities we need you to build the Elves their perfect vehicle. Those of you who’ve been visiting this site for a while will know what they like, but for those of you that haven’t, think racing stripes, Transformers, guns, remote control, huge engines, or all of the above. There may also be bonus points available for incorporating an Elf or two into your entry.

How to Enter

We’ve teamed up with the wonderful guys over at LUGNuts and Headturnerz on Flickr to enable you to upload your entries via their discussion threads. Alternatively you can contact us in the usual ways to link to your entry or entries.

You may enter as many creations as you like, and the winners will be chosen based upon the designs that best meet the brief and our usual Submission Guidelines. We recommend using the Search function to discover more about what the Elves like, and a few hints may be dropped throughout the duration of the competition.

Lego Competition Prizes


You can never read too much, and the awesome guys over at No Starch Press – purveyors of a large range of brilliant Lego books, have provided some excellent prizes for you to win!

The first place winner will have top choice of one of the three superb books pictured above. The second place runner up can choose between the remaining two books and the winner will also get their mitts on the remaining publication.

    An entry for the summer building competition.

    While the elves like the go-fast and the racing stripes of F1, they find going around in circles a little boring, which is why I have built the elves an F1 car with punch.

    With enough firepower to make even Vettel obey team orders, it makes overtaking even more exciting, even if the mini-elf on the back does keep falling off.

    Technical stuff- this is actually an alternative for 42039. It has full suspension and a two speed gearbox (fast and even faster) plus HOG steering and the usual stuff.

    Hope you like….
