Lego Technic Design Competition Officially Announced


The Lego Technic Design Competition that we recently talked about has been officially announced.

If you are handy with Technic sets, Lego Digital Designer or just like drawing vehicles then this is a wonderful opportunity to share your ideas.

Keep in mind that even though the competition closes at midnight on December 31, 2012, the earlier you get your design finished the better!

The competition is based on votes from people who view your design on the competition site.

The longer your design is on the site, the more people that vote, the greater your chance of winning.

Here is the press release.

Exclusive LEGO® Technic Design Competition: You design it – We make it!

You are invited to take part in the most exciting competition in LEGO® Technic history!

Design a special top for our new 4×4 Crawler!

You can do it!

New to LEGO Technic? Or a seasoned veteran builder with a basement full of elements? Not important. We’ve got the chassis, so if you have a great idea for an awesome design to go with it, don’t let anything hold you back!

Upload a picture of your design to the LEGO Technic Co-Creations Gallery. You can draw a model, use paper, sticks and glue, LEGO, or something completely different.

The prize

If you win, you can call yourself an honorary LEGO Technic Designer! We help you get the complete Technic design and building experience perfect. And the best part? We produce 20,000 of your unique model as exclusive collectibles!

You can find all the details on how to enter, tips and inspiration, and pictures of the chassis you need to use on

The competition is open until midnight, December 31, 2012. But hurry – – you need time to get enough votes to make the top 100 and be considered for the final!

We can’t wait to see your creations!

Lego Technic Design Competition 2012

Exciting news…In the latest issue of the Lego Club Magazine, there is a one page ad announcing a Lego Technic design competition where the winner will have their original design made into an official Lego set!

I must admit I passed over the page in my first few viewings of the magazine (not being an overly “Technic” family). However once I settled in to read the issue from cover to cover, I realized the significance of this rather unassuming page.

Lego is actually asking you to design a set for them!

Lego 9398

The competition states that Set 9398 The Technic 4X4 Crawler is one of the most detailed and exciting sets the Lego design team worked on this year.
Now Lego wants Technic fans to design their own version of the vehicle.

Lets get to the specifics:

  • Lego Technic fans need to design their own version of the 4X4 Crawler.
  • The top 10 entries will be put online for people to vote
  • The entry with the highest amount of votes will be determined the winner
  • The winner’s creation will be made into a Lego Technic set in 2013!

The page from the Lego Club Magazine prompts interested readers to go to to find out more information.

It’s fairly empty when you get there though. As yet, the only reference I could find was this blog post from way back in May of this year.

The post states:

“In the LEGO Technic team we are currently working on an exciting new competition, with a grand price (sic) never seen before in LEGO Technic history! We know you will love this competition and we can also reveal that it includes a completely new gallery for you to upload and share your fantastic creations. 

The competition will launch around October 2012 and we encourage all of your to stay tuned on for more information.”

So putting two and two together I am guessing that this competition is the one referenced in the Lego Club Magazine.

If you are interested you could wait until October to start on your design or get a head start now and begin designing your own version of the Technic 4×4 crawler.

Over on the Eurobricks Technic Forum they have started a very informative discussion already so head on over to find out what your peers (and fellow competitors) are saying.
