This one seems to have fallen off my brick radar.  The LEGO Ideas Tuxedo Cat Challenge kicked off earlier this month, inviting LEGO fanbuilders to display their creativity and love for their furry friends. Centered around the popular LEGO Ideas Tuxedo Cat (21349) set, this challenge offers exciting prizes for the most imaginative and skillful builds.

Unleash Your Creativity in the LEGO Ideas Tuxedo Cat Challenge

What is the LEGO Ideas Tuxedo Cat Challenge?

Launched recently, the LEGO Ideas Tuxedo Cat (21349) set has captured the hearts of fans worldwide, with many regions already reporting it sold out. To celebrate this success and engage the LEGO community, a new challenge focuses on the Tuxedo Cat and other beloved pets. Builders are encouraged to create scenes featuring their brick-built pets, ranging from cats and dogs to more unconventional companions like hamsters and parrots.

Challenge Guidelines and Submission Details

The challenge runs until July 9 (you still have several weeks to show-off those building skills), giving participants ample time to perfect their creations. Here are the essential guidelines to keep in mind:

1. Brick-Built Pets Only: Submissions must feature pets constructed entirely from LEGO bricks. Real animals are not allowed in the entries.

2. Originality: Avoid referencing any existing intellectual property. Your creation should be entirely your own.

3. Creativity and Presentation: Whether it’s a LEGO cat strolling through a cityscape or a hamster on a LEGO wheel, originality and presentation are key.
