BrickLink Alternate Build Competition - Official Rules

My LEGO Ride Alternate Build Competition



As we settle into the new year, BrickLink is excited to host another building challenge for all the amazing designers out there. This time around, the challenge will focus on the alternate build. A popular building challenge, the alternate build forces the designer to create the best MOC possible using only the parts in a given LEGO® set.


First and foremost, the design theme for the alternate build will be vehicles. This can be any mode of transportation ranging from a basic unicycle to a futuristic spaceship.


Secondly, we will be allowing any 2014-2015 Creator series sets to be used as the starting platform. The only limitation will be that only 2014-2015 Creator series set with less than 400 parts can be used for this competition.


The contest will be open for submissions starting from February 26, 2015 6:00PM (EST) and ending on April 20, 2015 6:00PM (EST).


With great constraints come great creativity. Good luck and happy building!
