Build Confused.com's robot Brian and win LEGO prizes

Posted by ,

Following the airing of the LEGO version of the Confused.com advert on ITV at the weekend, the company has launched a LEGO building competition.

What's more, it is also donating LEGO to our favourite charity Fairy Bricks, which is great news.

Find out more on the Confused.com website which also has a useful article about insuring your LEGO collection.

If you missed the ads, or are not in the UK, you can now view them on YouTube. (Thanks Paul).

Thank you for the reminder about insuring my LEGO collection. It's been on my to-do list for a while now. I would imagine for some it may be quite expensive to properly insure a collection.

Agreed, especially if you have a very big collection...
Also, while looking at the website, I wondered whether you were just supposed to build a model out of Legos or does it have to be functional?

I hadn't thought about insuring all my sets, but with 631 sets, amassing 137,645 bricks (thanks Brickset!) I probably should. I had previously contemplated insuring my Collectors Edition Death Star and Star Destroyer as their resale value is quite high, not that I would part with them.

When the renewal is due I think I will get a quote. Would the cost Brickset put to our collections be acceptable as a valuation of the sets to start with? I am tempted to put together a speadsheet now to try and calculate what some of the older ones might be worth today. Some of my Star Wars sets have sat in the cupboard/loft for 15 years now! One day I will get the time to photo them all as they should be - all together!

It shouldn't cost that much, I added my 'LEGO collection' as a named item on my home insurance, with a nominal value of £15k, and it cost me an additional £30 for the year.

mini_mads1980, if you want a quick and easy way of getting a market valuation of your collection, I can recommend exporting your Brickset collection into Brick Picker.

Awww man, that sucks its only open to people in the UK. I'd so do this if I could. Its almost perfect for my kind of MOCing. :'(

I guess that's only fair since its a UK insurance company. Wouldn't want some yank like me winning now would ya?

@3rdeye88 It's probably to do with the winner being available for photo opportunities etc. I would still love to see your moc though. Build it and I'll feature on the Fairy Bricks website!

I agree 3rdeye88, it totally sucks. Can we have something on this side of the Atlantic for once? And when are the Star Wars sets going to come out?!
