LEGO magazine contest

The new May issue of LEGO magazine has a top ten list of reasons why Dementors don't build with Legos. And that's not everything: It also features a LEGO contest set to be judged by Daniel, Rupert and Emma. The rules are posted below.

Top Ten Reasons Dementors Can’t Build:

10. Slimy hands make it hard to grip LEGO bricks.
9. Minifigures faint when they’re around.
8. Frustrated that no one wants to stay and read the LEGO building instructions with them.
7. Have to keep stopping to drain all the fun out of the room.
6. Lack of feet robs them of the fun of stepping on all those little LEGO pieces.
5. Good at taking things apart; bad at putting them together.
4. Dumbledore will not allow them to build a life-size Harry brick sculpture in Hogwarts Castle.
3. Can’t understand why there isn’t a LEGO set called “Dynamic Dementor Defenders.”
2. Worried that their minifigure cloaks make them look frumpy.
1. Too busy trying to kiss the Sirius Black minifigure.”

The contest rules:
