Is your desk littered with LEGO Bricks? Could you write Batman’s biography? Do you know Superman’s cape size?…Would you like to?
If you answered “yes,” to any of these questions, they have another one for you: would you like to win a trip for you and guest to New York City’s Comic-Con, have your mini-movie shown to fans around the world and meet a famed artist at DC headquarters?
We’re guessing that’s also a yes. Make that a YES!!!!!!
Here’s how you can make these super-heroic dreams come true: all you have to do is use LEGO DC Universe Super Heroes minifigures to make a video that’s fast, funny, and fun for everyone.
