We've come a long way since the days when a kid was totally jazzed to win some boring old decoder ring in the mail. As a way to celebrate 15 years of Lego Star Wars, Lego came up with a contest that would give one lucky kid the bedroom of their dreams. Well, their Star Wars dreams, at least.
All he/she had to do was submit a drawing of their favorite Star Wars scene, and then do all kinds of Jedi mind tricks to get Lego to select them. ("This is the drawing you're looking for, Lego.") In the end, it was five-year-old Milun Simpson's drawing of the Ewok village on the forest moon of Endor (from Return of the Jedi) that earned him bedroom bragging rights for all eternity.
Here's the winning picture, which includes a rad Ewok village bed, because even at the age of five Milun knew he needed to go big or go home.
When Lego builders arrived to transform Milun's bedroom, it looked pretty ordinary.
It took 60,000 Lego bricks and five weeks of work, but the results are pretty sweet.
Nice work little dude. Now send some of those Force vibes our way so we can turn Movies.com headquarters into a giant Lego AT-AT Walker.
