After sixteen builds, our final three teams have made it to the LEGO MASTERS Grand finale!
Our three teams have 28 hours to build whatever they want. Not only will they need to impress Brickman, but 200 members of the public as well. The episode also marks the return of Brickman’s Titanium Brick of Triumph worth 100 votes. The team with the most votes will be crowned the LEGO MASTERS of 2021. With more prize money than ever before thanks to Hamish’s extra $50 our teams are here to compete and take home the prize.
Joss and Henry started the season building creatures but have challenged themselves and really pushed themselves as LEGO builders. Now they are playing to their strengths and are building a giant monster Kaiju vs a Mec Crab. They are using everything they have learnt throughout the season and building the biggest, most technical creature to date (and there’s a second one). They will need to make it feel like an action movie and really perfect the moment of impact to stand above the other amazing builders.
Nick and Gene had the most dominant win streak LEGO Masters has ever seen, wining 6 builds in a row. They have mastered their own style throughout the season and are harnessing that in this final build. They are reimagining the classic children’s tale of a Troll under the bridge. The Troll is preventing some Sheppard’s from moving their flock to greener pastures. Nick and Gene are taking a very mature style and colour palette to this build, and to pull off this story they are going to have to make a very large and wide landscape to set the scene. Will the size of the landscape become their downfall, or will their landscape enchant the public vote?
No one is more surprised that they are in the Grand finale than Alex and Caleb, but they have gone from strength to strength this season of LEGO Masters. They constantly pushed themselves, took on Brickman’s feedback and have become incredible builders. Today they are playing to their strengths, characters, and fun. The mini figures are stealing household objects and turning them into parts of their city. They want to capture the audience attention by building an enormous tree that is home to a mini figure city, but they are going to have to sink a lot of hours into this tree to get the presence they need to compete with the other amazing builds in the room.
Each build nails a different Brickman criteria, Alex and Caleb for storytelling, Nick and Gene for aesthetics and Joss and Henry with technical ability. With more prize money than ever the audience has a tough decision on their hands with the best final 3 builds LEGO Masters has ever seen.
Ultimately Brickman and the public select Joss and Henry as the winners of LEGO Masters 2022. Brickman praises the boys final build, stating it is THE BEST monster and Mec build he has ever seen. The storytelling, aesthetics, and technical ability, particularly in the monster, is incredible and that is what crowns them the coveted title of LEGO Masters 2022.
The triumphant winners Joss and Henry came full circle after winning the first challenge of this season. They added bragging rights to their final build with Brickman declaring it was the best “monster” he has ever seen.
Henry said: “Winning LEGO Masters has given me two overwhelming emotions, gratitude and pride. I’m unbelievably grateful for the experience. I want to thank every member of the crew who helped us along the way, and of course Brickman and Hamish.
“It was the most fun I’ve had in my life, and we were able to meet all the amazing contestants we now call our family. I’m incredibly proud of my brother. Joss is an amazing artist and inspiringly talented and passionate about LEGO. I can’t think of anyone I know more deserving of the title of LEGO Masters.”
Joss said: “Our final build truly was a passion project. It’s everything Henry and I love about LEGO condensed into one build, and I couldn’t be happier with the final product. Making the finale was an amazing prize in itself. But being able to say that I took on LEGO Masters with my brother and won is something that I still don’t quite believe.
“Henry and I will continue to create things we’re passionate about, and we can’t wait to share them with the world.”
Brickman said: “Series four was unquestionably the hardest series of LEGO Masters ever, with the challenges, the timeframes, even taking LEGO outdoors. To rise up through all of that made winning this year mean more than any other year. So, boy, did Henry and Joss ever earn it!”
