LEGO®STAR WARSTM LAUNCHES INTERGALACTIC DREAM BEDROOM COMPETITION

10188_prodFor any child who has ever dreamed of living in a real life LEGO®Star Wars™ galaxy far, far away, their dream might just become a reality…

To mark 15 years of the LEGO®Star Wars™ franchise, LEGO® has come up with possibly it’s most exciting competition to date. Children are being asked to design their own dream LEGO®Star Wars™ bedroom, and let their imaginations run wild. A Star Destroyer bed, a Lightsaber curtain pole or a Death Star lampshade, the options are endless! For the lucky competition winner, LEGO® is offering to completely transform that child’s bedroom into their very own real life LEGO® Star Wars™ universe based on their own design.

Launching exclusively in Titan Magazine’s Star Wars™ Comic, on sale Thursday 6th March, the ‘Design your dream LEGO®Star Wars™ bedroom competition’ is a once-in-a-lifetime chance for a child to get the bedroom of their dreams built by LEGO® in collaboration with Bright Bricks, the professionally certified LEGO® building company.

LEGO®Star Wars™ Brand Manager, Justin Clasby, explained: “LEGO®Star Wars™ has been one of our huge success stories, with 197 million LEGO®Star Wars™ sets having been sold in its 15 year history. Currently there are approximately 750 different LEGO®Star Wars™ minifigures battling it out in children’s bedrooms worldwide, so we decided to launch a competition that would capture our fans’ imaginations and give one lucky child the bedroom of their dreams.”

Duncan Titmarsh from Bright Bricks added “We can’t wait to get stuck into this project – it’s a great competition that will really get kids’ imaginations flowing and it’s going to be awesome to work with a kid’s own design and create their fantasy LEGO®Star Wars™ bedroom – we can’t wait!”

Group Advertising Manager for Titan Magazines , Michelle Fairlamb added: “We’re so excited to be working with LEGO®Star Wars™ on this inspiring new competition. The Star Wars™ Comic has a hugely loyal and engaged following, so we’re expecting an unprecedented number of really creative entries. The tough job will be choosing the winner!”

Closing date for entries is 2nd April 2014 and the lucky winner will be revealed in the 1st May issue of the Star Wars™ Comic – just in time to celebrate May 4th (May the Forth be with you)!

The new 2014 LEGO® Star Wars™ collection is now available nationwide at all good retailers.
