It’s time to get festive in a galaxy far, far away with your Lego sets.
Wednesday (Dec. 23) is the last chance to join the “Star Wars: Force for Change” challenge with the For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology (FIRST) Lego League, which asks fans aged 13 and up to reimagine Lego bricks into ” ‘Star Wars’ holiday-inspired builds,” Disney and Lego said in a press release.
“Share a photo of your Lego Star Wars holiday designs on Instagram or Twitter with #LEGOStarWarsHolidayContest, and one grand prize winner will be selected to receive the Lego “Star Wars” Millennium Falcon set and a FIRST Lego League team or classroom registration,” the press release stated.

Four runners-up will be selected to receive Lego Star Wars The Child (aka “Baby Yoda” from “The Mandalorian”), Lego Star Wars Poe Dameron’s X-wing Fighter (a popular character from the sequel series of 2015-2019), and various Lego Star Wars vehicle sets from different franchise eras: the Sith TIE Fighter, the AT-AT and The Razor Crest.

Lego has posted plenty of examples of holiday-themed “Star Wars” designs in recent days on social media and on YouTube.
A Dec. 8 Twitter post showed The Child, the Millennium Falcon, an AT-AT and a TIE fighter adorned with garlands, Christmas trees, presents and even festive hats.
On YouTube, recent videos include how to create a Lego Santa hat and beard for your AT-AT, how to build candy canes for and throw a party with “Star Wars” characters, and an omnibus video featuring holiday themes for sets such as Anakin’s Jedi Interceptor, General Grievous’s Starfighter and 501st Legion Clone Troopers.
