Friends Bricks Building Challenge: Time~Warp!

The Friends Bricks community is hosting its first building challenge to help get your creative juices flowing! Grab your bricks and take a little time trip and see what your imagination can build.

Time travel with your imagination back to your 10-year-old self ... design a LEGO Friends set you would have wanted to build & play!

Your participating MOC needs to follow these parameters:
- Contain roughly 100 to 150 LEGO bricks
- A Friend-ly style that would fit into Heartlake City
- No LDD
- Mini-Doll inclusion is optional
- LEGO bricks & parts only (no clone or 3rd-party items allowed)
- No photoshopped backgrounds
- Custom stickers allowed
- More than one entry per person is allowed
- Must be an original MOC, never posted online or at an event before
- Baseplates allowed
- MiniFigures not allowed (may be allowed in future building challenges)
- Open to ages 13 & Up
(we have a Forum-only building challenge for ages 12 & Under -- see Parents board there)
- One image of your creation allowed in the "Entry" thread, and 3 allowed in the photo pool (on Flickr) and 6 allowed in your creation's own thread on our Forum
- Place comments & question on this thread only -- not the "Entry" thread; if you'd like to comment about another fan's entry, do so on their image comments area, or on their thread on our Friends Bricks Forum
- Conclusion of this building challenge is July 31, 2013

LEGO Fan Community 2nd Quarter Survey

Friends Bricks fans are asked to take a community survey:

Dear all,

We want your help to understand how we can best support and improve the LEGO fan community.

To learn more about the adult LEGO fan community, we distribute a survey 4 times a year. The surveys help us understand what you and your fellow AFOLs are engaged in, what you think of your LEGO hobby, and how you perceive the LEGO brand. Survey results guide our team at the LEGO Group as we work to better support of the fan community. As such, the surveys help us decide where to spend our time and money.
