Alongside the contests Lego have thought up themselves, Lego enthusiasts can enter a creation they have made at home. One such person, Lego user Hwachtman, painstakingly designed a house from Coraline (a dark fantasy children’s novella by Neil Gaiman), with an amazing attention to details. It started as a sketch taken from the movie adaptation of the book, and ended up a 3,000 Lego brick construction complete with lights. Any Lego fan can register on the site and vote for their favourite set, in hopes that it will be available to purchase one day.
