LEGO Team GB Olympics Minifigures Contest

Post by Toys N Bricks » Fri Jul 27, 2012 4:15 pm

The London 2012 Olympics opening ceremony have commenced a few hours ago (1pm PST / 4pm EST / 9pm GMT) marking the start of the Olympic Games. I'm sure most of you are still watching it right now!

To celebrate this special international sport event, we will have a raffle where you could win a complete set of nine LEGO London Team GB Olympic Minifigures! This set of minifigures is exclusive to the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. They are not available for sale in any other countries making them very rare and limited! Wanna win them? Find out how below!

Raffle giveaway is open until the end of the London Olympics on Sunday August 12, 2012 at 21:00 PST.

For the build, do we have to use physical bricks or are we allowed to use LDD? Thanks TNB for hosting this wonderful contest and give use a chance to win a set of these exclusive minifigures.

Hi Legobrandon

Its only a small build. But if you really want to use LDD, we're not going to say no. Since this is a raffle, we can be a bit more flexible. :)

Seems small but the green pieces to create the swimming separators are exactly 100 pieces, and the waters ones are around 25

My entry for the Contest. Roughly 180 bricks and 10 minifigs

"At the finish line!" The crowd reacts at the end of the finish...

A judge shuttles around his RC Mini Cooper, while the timekeeper knows something is very wrong....

Enjoy!

A simple build, with obligatory piece count inflating random spectators! But definitely my favorite moment of the Olympics, in which a boxer goes down 6 times in the final round...and is declared the winner! Apparently the ref did not look like this.

My last minute entry. I've really enjoyed the 2012 London Olympics, but am happy that I can soon go to bed at a reasonable time!

The entry honors women's gymnastics. As you can see this gymnast steps out of bounds during her floor routine and receives the white flag. Her coach is not amused! The judges will have to work hard calculating her score! Not to call out a specific gymnast, but I had US Gymnast Jordyn Wieber in mind ;-) Edited: I should explain why this is my favorite Olympic moment. ;-) While disappointing that Jordyn did not make the cut for the All Around Competition, partially because she stepped out durng her routine, a gymnast from Massachusetts, Aly Raisman rocked on the floor (twice) to qualify for the All Around and to go on for the Gold on Floor Exercise.

I suppose you could also see this little scene as the Russians who did not take gold on the Floor Exercise!
