LEGO My Contest!

Hey there Brickereenos. Enjoy this past Sundays Brick Like Me Episode? Hoping for more things LEGO in your life? Well, you have come to the right place.

What do you think of when you see this?

LEGO Minifigs

Got your attention now? A little curious? Well, you just may want to read more…

Over the last few months we have been dropping “subtle hints” in regards to a nice lil treat coming to our readers. We just had to wait first for the items to be released. Why? Well because we LOVE spoiling our AMAZING readers on our blog here (as usual) with random contests. CONTEST??!! (Yup, I said the magic words.) WOOHOO!!!

We all seem to fit together here on this blog quite nicely. No matter how dysfunctional we can be. So what better way to celebrate that than to give away LEGO Simpsons Minifigures!! WOOHOO!!

How will this work? Over the period of a week (Starting Sunday May 11th, 2014), we will have a “Scavenger Hunt” of sorts for our readers. Scattered throughout our posts for each day will be key words. Don’t worry, they will be OBVIOUS to locate. There may be one in each post, or there may be one in every other post. You won’t know until you look.

Collect the information for each of these key words and keep them handy as the following week we will put up a LEGO Contest Open Thread. You just comment with the items you found in the previous weeks posts and that is it. We will close the Open Thread at the end of the night and all that answered will be put into the random name generator and winners will be announced. A total of FIVE Winners will be chosen each day. If you didn’t win… no worries… you can enter again the next LEGO Contest Open Thread.

The LEGO Contest Open Thread will correspond with the day of the previous week. Monday’s LEGO Contest Open Thread will be for the previous Monday’s Posts Scavenger Hunt Items. Tuesday’s LEGO Contest Open Thread will be for the previous Tuesday’s Posts Scavenger Hunt Items. Etc.

You can win up to a total of TWO times. Once your name is chosen the 2nd time, you will no longer be eligible. This is open to EVERYONE. Including past winners. So anyone can enter.

So how do the prizes work? The 5 Winners will each get ONE LEGO Minifigure. We will have a predetermined set of characters picked out. 3 opened and 2 blind bags. The first two Winners will  have the option to pick one open or one blind bag, the remaining will then get passed on to the next 2, and so on until all 5 characters are awarded. (Gotta make it a lil interesting.)

  1. HAHAHA, I love this, I already have my entry & I can’t wait to see what others come up with, this is gonna be freakin funny! (I kinda wish previous winners were ineligible JUST so I could email you what I have directly, right now… gonna drive me nuts waiting!)

  2. Don’t know how I missed the original thread, but I already know where you’re putting the words (I’m smart like that ya know) LOL! Funny, the first thought that came to mind about it when I read “What do you think of when you see this?” was ouch, grrr ouch ewww ouch 😉 (my son had **many** Legos as a child).

  3. A week or so late…first I’ve seen of it… 🙂

  4. So are you going to make it hidden answers or so that everyone reading the open thread can see what someone else put? If the latter then essentially everyone can just copy what someone else put which takes the fun out of the hunt. IMHO it should be blind postings via a form rather than comments – hopefully that is what you are doing.

    • It’s going to be a blind posting. It’ll be similar to what the current Easter Poll is like. The answers will get submitted that way so they’re more organized for the random pull of the top 5. 🙂

  5. Ok…….I finally figured it out…..I feel soooo stupid because the answer was plainly, right in front of my face (it could not be more obvious). Ok…here it is… take the first letter from the 5th word in every 3rd sentence, then you add those to the 3rd letter of the 14th word in each paragraph. If you do this correctly you’ll get the hidden contest word which…of course is: EHSURNVBDHSJFYRB…..TADA!!! NOW did I win?😜

  6. Rad idea! I bought a few of these the other day at Toys R Us… Alas I have two Apus and a Ralph Wiggum. Now if the was only a way we can start a trade… Hmmmmmmmm

  7. I’m all over this! So let me confirm, there will be hidden words each day for a week and then open threads each day for a week? So we need to keep track of which words we found each specific day, not the total of the week?
    Lego mini figs you are mine muah ha ha…. 🙂

  8. Woo-Hoo! Great idea!!

  9. Awesome!! I’d have to hide them from the kids like Gollum…my precious.

  10. Sorry autocorrect on my phone Alissa!

  11. Sorry I missed the national guard alert that bunny was coughing up fur balls. Glad your feeling better bunny. I won’t yell at you then for not clearing your visits. I would bring you ice cream but it would melt by the time I got it too you. Allison you need to make sure you setup a thread when one of you go down. Man why am I always the last to know.

  12. Can I feel all over the bag to see which character I think is in there before I make my choice? 😛

    • No…but I may be of assistance if one is kind to me to determine a possible name of who is in there. 😛

      Besides…if technology was such that you could reach through the screen…I would be in trouble for smacking many people upside the head. 😛

      • Ok I will rely on you to do the feeling all over the bag for me. Yeah, if you could reach through the screen, you probably would have strangled Freaknstein8 like Homer does Bart. “Why you little…”

      • A bunny boot to my dome would have happened for sure! Happy to have missed out on that.

  13. Yooooooooo lol wtf im hype for nothin lol i never had lil toys or anything like dat (grew up fast) but for some reason im excited to win lol s*****t even if i dont imma buy then n make a mini town 🙂 so cool lol i dont really understand yet exacly how this works but trust i will be huntin for the key words on monday lol

  14. AWESOME……The first one is LEGO…….did I win?……wait!? Maybe I should go read the “Rules”!……….(you know I only read the comments…didn’t know you guys POST stuff too…)😜

  15. This sounds great! My addiction to everything the Simpsons has not been too expensive so far and I plan to keep it that way, so a chance to win collect abeles I would usually buy is great

    • This was the hope in doing this contest, to feed the Simpson Addiction! Now the question is….will you go with the sure thing and pick your figure or roll the dice with a blind pack? 😉

  16. Oooohhhh exciting!

    • We thought we’d have a little fun surprise for readers today…for those that weren’t too happy with EA’s surprise today. 🙂
