Australia’s most beloved entertainment show is back with a brand-new shiny set and this season promises to take the competition to a whole new level!
Hamish Blake returns as host, alongside judge Ryan “Brickman” McNaught, one of only 14 certified LEGO professionals in the world. Joining them, sixteen of the country’s best LEGO builders, all competing for the title of Australia’s next LEGO Masters, and one hundred thousand dollars.
This year the teams will be competing for the Titanium Brick of Triumph which grants them immunity from the elimination. However, the twist this season is that the teams will never know when it is an elimination build. The brick will then go back into play and anyone can win it.
To win it, they face an epic first challenge. The teams must create a show stopping piece that you would find at the bottom of the ocean. Not only must they tick Brickman’s judging criteria, the builds must be able to withstand the refill of the pool. They have 16 hours to complete their builds.
Father and son team, Branko and Max decide to go with Poseidon. Hoping to make their mark on the competition, brothers Henry and Joss choose to build a Sea Serpent. Husbands, Paul and Trent, build an Underwater Art Wreckage. Lexi and Rachael, go with Magical Mermaids. Kirsti and Daniel are the only team to implement the idea of water and create an Underwater Alien Colony. Friends Gene and Nick decide to go with an Underwater Western inspired build. Alex and Caleb go for a terrifying Seaworm and Andrew and Crystal build Amelia Earhart’s plane wreckage.Time’s up and all teams have created spectacular builds. There is one last thing for Hamish to do and that is to drain the ocean!
In a LEGO Masters first, three teams are called forward. But in the end, brother’s Henry and Joss win over Brickman with their technical and beautiful build. They’re the first team to win the Titanium Brick of Triumph!
