Win these rare minifigs in our exclusive competition!

Here's the competition you've been waiting for, with the prize so cool I don't want to give it away!

We've teamed up with the Community, Engagement and Communication team at LEGO to give you the chance to win these two ComicCon exclusive preview edition Super Heroes minifigs!

These Green Lantern and Batman figures won't be available anywhere else until 2012, so this is your chance to get hold of them before then!

The competition's aim is to raise awareness of the LEGO Super Heroes Challenge building contest, which offers a grand prize of a trip for 4 to Warner Bros. Studios, WB Animation, and LEGOLAND California Resort and the complete 2012 LEGO Super Heroes: DC Universe collection.

All you have to do is answer the question on the competition page. You can find the answer on the contest's website at LEGOSuperHeroes.com. Once you've done so, get building and enter the Challenge!

What is so bad about a free chance at winning minifigs? It costs nothing for goodness sakes! I for one would love a batman minifig, I was gutted the batman sets were only available in the USA!

@orybloodmyre Batman sets were available in the UK for a year or two...I got the set with Robin & Penguin and the Arkham Asylum set before everything went crazy on ebay and prices went through the roof.

It would be cool to see more batman stuff and I can't wait for Capt America :-)

There's no pleasing some people, is there...

Brickset has evolved beyond just being about new sets and is now a cornerstone of the online LEGO community with over 250,000 visitors a month and it's great that LEGO value it and our community enough to run competitions like this here.

I think it is great and also this site is what all other LEGO sites aim to be as good as (well mine does anyway ), plus I have entered as never won anything but always a first time.

@Alemas: Then why is there a forum? And a set database? And reviews? Eh?

As for me, I'm happy. I wasn't into LEGO Batman when I was younger. Here's a chance to save me money and get two awesome figs, and popularity points with the LEGO nerds I know. :)

Hey Huw, for the section that says "Your name," should I reply with my username or my real name?

Wow. Crazy how someone lectures that site's creator on what he created the site for. Also quite sad that sometime thinks that whole site should revolve around their wishes without thought to what the 249,999 others who frequent it may want. I don't personally plan to enter the contest, but seeing a post on it certainly harms me not at all. I guess complainers will always find fault...

I'm gonna win!

Oh wow I want that Green Lantern figure!!!! Must have now!

By in Canada,

I was a bit disappointed that the Super Heroes contest was only open to those in the US. I had all sorts of ideas, with no chance to win. If I'm wrong, somebody tell me quick! But otherwise it was a bit disheartening.

Thanks for this contest Huw. I think it's a great idea... and a GREAT prize!

By in United States,

Thanks for the opportunity, Huw! "These Green Lantern and Batman figures won't be available anywhere else until 2012". Do you know for a fact that the figs are getting released next year? If so, I'd be extremely happy. :)

@Dodge- It's open to everybody, from the US, Canada, and the UK. You can enter, if Im wrong let me know, because I entered anyways, Hope I win, I really want these, well im sure everybody does! I already have the batman Fig, but the Green Latern is the one I really want, great idea Huw!

Gravatar
By in Canada,

Well I entered... I'm not too upset about losing. As long as the winner treasures their prize and doesn't even think of re-selling it! *lol*

What a freaking-cool prize though!!!

Gravatar
By in Canada,

Aww...these contests aren't available in Canada!

Gravatar
By in Canada,

So you win the minifigs by entering the Brickset competition, and you win the trip by entering a video or picture at LEGO.com, right?

And, from what I've heard the trip competition is not open in Canada, right?

EDIT: I've entered! I Hope I win!!

@Ypres:

What about giving away a minifigure to a friend? :-P

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Yeah or trading with a friend? xD

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Anyone can enter, wherever they are in the world.

Huw, Does that go for both this Brickset competition and the Lego Superharoes competition? I couldn't find any infomation on their page about who it's open to.. Cheers for another shot at an awesome prize!

EDIT: Nevermind, I see the superheroes compitition is only open to residents of the US or the District of Columbia. Ah well.

By in United Kingdom,

^ I couldn't see anything that excludes anyone either, so I assume it's opene to everyone.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Huw, there's nothing I can see in the T&Cs about Brickset employees/staff being excluded, should I assume this is an omission, or can I enter?

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

^ I decided that everyone, except me, can enter: it would look really bad if I won!

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

This'll attract a few entries I suspect....!

Awesome prize, and the tiny minority of moaners really need to get a grip.....

Why not double the chances of a win by splitting the prize and letting the first out of the hat choose which fig they want ?

What day in October does it finish?

By in United Kingdom,

Monday, 3rd

By in Canada,

^^Good idea.

So the LEGO competition is only open to the US?

Gravatar
By in United States,

that's a good idea dave! I just want batman. :D

The Brickset competition is open to everyone.

Lego's competition (the super heroes build challenge) is "Open to legal residents of the 50 United States and the District of Columbia only. Participants under the age of 18 must obtain permission of a parent or legal guardian in order to enter. Offer void where prohibited or restricted by law." (copied and pasted from the competition website).

@Huw's reply to me: So... it has become kinda like The Brothers Brick? :P It was a humble blog before, now look where it is... :P

Gravatar
By in United States,

Easy question. Please keep doing contests for us in the USA!

By in Ireland,

Thanks for the heads-up @Huw, I love Lego competitions - the more the merrier! Would love to get my hands on Green Lantern, I think he's a brilliant character, and the possibilities of Lego constructs that he will be imagine-up and create from his ring are endless. :)

Gravatar
By in United States,

@Huw Are these figs going to be released next year? Of course I'm participating on this, but just on the very likely case that I don't win, I'd like to know if I'll be able to get them
next year. On your post it seemed like you were suggesting that they are indeed going to be released. :)

By in United States,

Do we submit our usernames or real names?

Gravatar
By in United States,

I just entered! That question was easy! :D

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Huw, is there a limit to how many times someone can enter? Is it just one entry per email address? Thanks very much.

Gravatar
By in United States,

/\ During the last constest, he deleted all repeat entries (except for the first of course) /\

Gravatar
By in United States,

^^There should be one because otherwise one could just enter four (4) times knowing one would be right.

Gravatar
By in United States,

uh...im a little confused :P are we just supposed to answer the question on the compitition page? or is there anything else we need to do? because it said

"All you have to do is answer the question below. You can find the answer on the contest's website at LEGOSuperHeroes.com. Once you've done so, get building and enter the Challenge!"

so whats this building its talking about? or does it have nothing to do with the contest on brickset?

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

^ The two competitions are separate. To enter the Brickset competition, all you need to do is answer the question on the competition page. The reason that Brickset is asking a question about the LEGO Superheroes Challenge Building Contest is to make you aware of/encourage you to enter that competition as well, hence the part in the news story:

"The competition's aim is to raise awareness of the LEGO Super Heroes Challenge building contest, which offers a grand prize of a trip for 4 to Warner Bros. Studios, WB Animation, and LEGOLAND California Resort and the complete 2012 LEGO Super Heroes: DC Universe collection."

Hope that clears it up for you.

It seems no one realizes that anyone can enter!

By in United Kingdom,

The submission form appears to have the same broken email validation as the site account creation form, namely it doesn't believe in plus signs in the part to the left of the @.
I bet it doesn't like non-ASCII characters either, you should fix this before IDNs get more widespread, or just remove the complicated validation entirely and just insist on an '@' with one '.' to it's right.
