LEGO Invites Fans to Create Their Own Official Space Sets

When it comes to space, it’s one small step for man and one giant leap for LEGO. The LEGO company itself has released quite a few space-inspired sets over the years, including some drawn from popular properties like Star Wars and some inspired by real life. But now, LEGO is asking fans to create a new space set of their own design as part of an official contest.

Via Mental Floss, LEGO has sent out the call to builders 13 years old and up to participate in LEGO Moments in Space. As part of this competition, fans will design and create “the ultimate space model” from their imaginations. In other words, it’s not limited to actual spacecraft or ships from sci-fi shows, films, or books. However, there are some limitations. LEGO isn’t looking to create massive $800 sets like its Millennium Falcon. Instead, LEGO is asking for a final product that will break down into 300 pieces and fit into one of the smaller LEGO boxes.

The LEGO Moments in Space contest has an official site. Several fans have already submitted designs, and you can scroll through them for inspiration. They’re accepting submissions until February 9, at which point fans will be given the opportunity to vote for their favorite designs. The LEGO experts will weigh in on February 19, and the results will be announced on March 2. After that, the winning design will be turned into an official LEGO set that will be given away as a promotion.
