I was fortunate enough to take part in a speed build of the LEGO Ninjago Ice Tank, as part of a Toys R Us/LEGO promotion of The LEGO Ninjago Movie. Check out the video below to see the greatly sped-up progress!
I hadn’t seen the model in person before, nor had I built any of the Ninjago Movie sets prior to the build-off. However, I knew there was going to be a lot to contend with. As well as the numerous small parts, there were quite a few tricky and unusual connections. We’d agreed to use the stickers, which is something I don’t like doing.
Though the video is less than a minute long, the build took around 90 minutes to complete – and it was exhausting!
I was actually nervous about this build-off, and I realised I have a very competitive streak when it comes to winning things. However, it was all good fun and nothing to take too seriously. There were no losers, and there shouldn’t be.
Toys R Us is running a competition on the Facebook page: simply let them know in their comments section who won the build-off. You have until this Friday (3rd November) to enter!
