A LEGO Technic Build Competition

Post by Brickcetra on Tue Aug 11, 2015 5:47 pm

A great contest for technic builders

Build THE Mercedes-Benz Truck of the future!

One day during the early 1920’s Karl Benz and Gottlieb Daimler sat down in Germany and agreed to merge their two car companies into one and start producing Mercedes-Benz cars. They had each made their own versions of the world’s first petrol-driven cars back in 1886. Within years, Gottlieb Daimler sold his first truck – almost 120 years ago!

Some of the first Mercedes-Benz branded diesel powered trucks were built in Stuttgart in 1923. Today, in 2015, half of all trucks on the German roads are Mercedes-Benz trucks.

Just imagine how Karl and Gottlieb would react if they were time-warped from 1925 to 2015 to witness just how big, fast and capable the Mercedes-Benz trucks have become 90 years later! What would they say if they could see what their vision has led to?

Your vision…

Think the new LEGO® Technic 42043 Mercedes-Benz Arocs 3245 is the coolest Technic set ever made? (Yeah, we like it, too!) And have you thought about what the perfect truck would look like if you could design your own?

Hold that thought, and now, imagine yourself traveling 30 years into the future, to 2045. You’re taking a brand new Mercedes-Benz Truck out for a spin. It’s the truck of your dreams! What does it look like? How does it move, and what will it haul? What will be required of a truck in the year 2045? What will it be fueled by – diesel, electricity, recycled waste, or something completely different?

Be a visionary, and build the ultimate Mercedes-Benz Truck of the future with LEGO Technic!

Ready, research, design!

How to join:

Look back 30 years: how have truck designs evolved since 1985? And looking ahead, can you spot the latest trends in truck design, alternative fuels, transportation needs, infrastructure changes, and combine it all into the perfect future truck?

To join the competition, research, design, and build your model, take a great picture and upload it, and if you feel like recording a video of your design process, feel free to send that to us, too.

Rev up your engines, and join the competition on ReBrick.com! (http://rebrick.lego.com/technic) You will find all the fun details and small print there - we can’t wait to see your designs. Enter now until October 5th, 2015!

Win:

One talented design winner will take home an exclusive first prize: LEGO Technic models worth 1,000 EUR, a signed LEGO Technic 42043 Mercedes-Benz Arocs 3245 box, and a specialized Winner certificate.

Nine runners-up will each be awarded a signed LEGO Technic 42043 Mercedes-Benz Arocs 3245 box, and a specialized Winner certificate.

Happy building, and good luck from the LEGO Technic Team!
