Time to get creative folks. The folks behind Lego are making a new movie, Lego: The Motion Picture, and they need your help in populating the big screen with custom-created vehicles. Cars, planes, boats, boat-cars, truck-planes. They're all fair game if they can provide transportation to those yellow-headed Lego guys.

But there's a catch. Your vehicle must look like it was built from something else. Turn a castle into air boat (maybe it burned down, fell over and didn't sink into the swamp). Or a pickup truck assembled from the pieces of a 1950s diner. You get the point.

The Warner Brothers 3D CGI film will be directed by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller who also directed 21 Jump Street and Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs and produced by Dan Lin of Sherlock Holmes fame and How to Train Your Dragon producer Roy Lee.

Check out the call to action video below, then check out the link on this page to submit a photo of your cobbled-together creation for a chance to win not only $1,000, but also to see your creation on the big screen.

      I don't understand why everything in the movie biz these days has to be CGI and in 3D. Why not go old school, use actual LEGOs and film it in stop-motion. Hell, even shoot it at LEGOLAND. I'd probably go see it then.

      FFS 40 years too late. I could have designed the lead, supports, bit players and multitude extras for this and 10 sequels in my heyday! : /

      I remember assembling a lego fork lift with working gears, etc when I was a kid. I was really proud of myself for actually making the fork lift and not cannibalizing the parts (not to mention following directions). It was awesome for about 5 minutes: It fell off the table and exploded into hundreds of pieces. Still pisses me off. That said, it would be awesome to build a full size working lego car. I'm sure it wouldn't pass safety regs. :)
