Everything is in the name. Announcing the 'Build Big, Win Big' contest, one of the largest giveaways we've ever done. We even pulled an original World of Warcraft brown Collector's Edition from the Blizzard Vaults! From now until December 10, take your Mega Bloks World of Warcraft sets and stack, rearrange, redesign and recombine ‘em into never-before-seen creations.
We want to see how big, impressive and creative you can be with the World of Warcraft Mega Bloks. Once you're ready, snap some pictures of your masterpiece and submit them through our official "Build Big, Win Big" Facebook Contest Page. The form will ask for your name, the name of your creation, and its recipe (ex: Deathwing Stormwind Assault, Goblin Zeppelin, Gnome Flying Machines). There will be 16 lucky winners.
In the United Kingdom you can find the products at ToysRUs, Smyths, Argos or at Argos Online.

Honorable Mentions (10 of 10)
All official contest rules are listed at our official "Build Big, Win Big" Facebook Contest Page.
Each week entries we’ve received will be posted to the official World of Warcraft Facebook page for the world to see. Winners will be determined by a panel of esteemed Blizzard brick fans and judged on originality, creativity and size of build. Note that only entries which exclusively contain Mega Bloks World of Warcraft sets will be considered valid. We’re sure the existing sets are enough to spark your creativity, so at least for this contest no throwing other toys, crafts, or cats into the mix!
That's it, so get to building!

When the Sha of Fear invaded the Terrace of Endless Spring, three venerated jinyu protectors were corrupted, and they betrayed the other mortal sentinels, slaying them all. The twisted guardians have now turned their attention to any intruders who might interrupt the sha's attack on the area's last defenses.
In 25 player Difficulty, Elder Regail imprisons 5 players.
Minions of Fear pour from the Terrace of Endless Spring, pursuing the Protector with the lowest remaining health.
In 25 player Difficulty, Corrupted Essences infect the 5 closest players.
Legends speak of a spiraling, golden serpent that can sometimes be seen high in the sky, basking in the sunlight above the clouds. The few who claim to have observed it themselves say the creature is fiercely protective of the terrace.
Tsulong struggles at Night with the Sha's corrupting influence. Bringing Tsulong's remaining health to zero while at Night permanently destroys the Sha's influence over him. When he reaches 100 energy, he temporarily purges the Sha's influence and radiant sunlight turns Night into Day.
During the Day, Tsulong gains the upper hand over the Sha corruption. Players may heal and aid Tsulong during the Day, and bringing him to full health while in the Day permanently destroys the Sha's influence over him. When he reaches 100 energy, the Sha corrupts his emotions and Night descends upon the Terrace.
For countless years, this friendly water spirit frolicked in the Fountains of Endless Spring with childlike wonder and glee. When fighting suddenly broke out in this peaceful place, Lei Shi saw the crystal-clear water turn cloudy and murky, and terror fell over her mind.
The Sha of Fear is the physical manifestation of terror in Pandaria. Imprisoned by the legendary pandaren emperor Shao Hao long ago, the entity has been newly strengthened by rising conflict across the island.
The Sha of Fear looms atop the Terrace, attempting to consume the pure light emanating from its center.
A narrow column of uncorrupted light still projects skyward from the center of the terrace. When a player stands in this light it bends, forming a protective wall that extends back from this Champion of the Light in a 'V' shape. This attracts the attention of the Sha of Fear, who fixates on the Champion.
The group of players transported by Ominous Cackle must defeat one of three Sha possessed crossbowmen. The former terrace guardians Yang Guoshi, Cheng Kang, and Jinlun Kun attack the players.
On heroic difficulty the Sha of Fear retreats to the Dread Expanse at 50% remaining health, dragging players along with him. This watery wasteland is a place of the Sha's making where he has access to a new set of abilities.
The uncorrupted light from the terrace binds itself to the current champion and takes on a new form. It grows stronger, granting the champion immunity to fear and horror effects and reduces their damage taken by 30%.
