We love Lego. We also love biodegradable plant-based plastics, and green energy. And so…..
To celebrate our 08th issue, and because it’s almost Christmas, we’re running a competition to give away something very cool – the Lego Vestas Wind Turbine.
Here’s what Lego say about this frankly brilliant set:
Celebrate green energy innovation with the LEGO® Creator Expert 10268 Vestas Wind Turbine. Developed in partnership with Vestas, this detailed, motorised LEGO model captures the elegance and graceful movement of a traditional wind turbine and features a new-for-January 2019 spruce tree, manufactured from sustainably sourced plant-based plastic. At approximately 39” (1m) high, the structure towers above a wooded hill and a house with furnished patio, mailbox, flowers and a white picket fence. Turn the nacelle left or right and switch on the included Power Functions motor to rotate the adjustable wind turbine blades and illuminate the cottage’s porch light. This collectible model has been designed to provide a challenging and rewarding building experience with a touch of nostalgia and makes a great display piece for the home or office. This big LEGO set also includes a Vestas service vehicle and 3 minifigures: 2 Vestas service technicians kitted out with safety helmets and a woman, plus a dog figure.

The set is currently sat, fresh in box, in Ethos Towers and we managed to forcibly remove it from Andrew’s hands just before he tore into the box and kept the set all for himself (don’t worry, he’s fine – we gave him a mulled wine and a Lego Mini-Figure to calm him down). The set retails at £159.99 in the UK.
To be in with a chance of winning the set, purchase a subscription for yourself or a friend between Tuesday 27th November and Friday 14th December. We’ll pick a winner at random on Monday 17th December, everyone who buys a subscription in this time period will also get a copy of Ethos issue 03 featuring our Lego cover story. Competition is open to UK subscribers only, sorry.
