LEGO Masters

I’ve always felt LEGO Masters would be better with more than one judge. As it is, the entire show revolves around the opinion of one person whose opinions sometimes seem at odds with what the public thinks based on viewer choices and social media. Way too much use of the word “pop” for my liking. Some more opinions would be welcome and reinvigorate the judging.

The problem is there are very few Lego certified builders in Australia who have as much experience as Brickman.

Doesn’t have to be a LEGO Certified Builder or from Australia.

Amy Corbett who is from Scotland has been a judge on both the UK and US versions of the show where there are 2 judges.

TEAM USA WIN LEGO® MASTERS AUSTRALIA

Tonight Krystle and Michelle have been crowned winners of LEGO® Masters Australia vs The World on Channel 9 and 9Now.

They became the first international team to win LEGO® Masters Australia and the first female team to win a LEGO® Masters competition worldwide, taking home the trophy and $100,000.

In tonight’s Grand Finale the three remaining teams were given 28 hours to build whatever they wanted – and they blew the judges and superfans away with breathtaking builds.

Alongside the other contestants, 200 members of the public and judge Ryan “Brickman” McNaught determined the winners of LEGO® Masters Australia vs The World 2024.

Krystle and Michelle were faced with the initial challenge of being paired together for the first time in this series. However, week after week they grew stronger, creating awe-inspiring builds. They took a huge risk in the finale by removing their base plate and creating a life-sized “Artist Studio” taken over by mini-figures – the largest build in LEGO® Masters history. There were doubts if they could make their vision come to life in the time given, but they succeeded.

In second place were the season’s biggest competitors, Felix and Annalena, previous winners of LEGO® Masters Germany. They won the first four episodes on their quest for a second title. In the finale they expanded on the fairy build that gave them victory in Germany, creating “Fairy Village”.

In third place, the homegrown Aussie pair, Shane and Dianne, created their most mature build “Final Frontier”. Playing to their strengths, they took on a huge technical challenge that featured a spaceman who crash-landed on a foreign planet and discovered a floating alien castle in the distance.

Krystle and Michelle said: “Representing Team USA was an incredible honour. The memories and family made Down Under will be held in our hearts for the rest of our lives.

“Over the course of the series and building together for the first time, the respect we have for each other is like no other. We were determined to give it everything we had and we are proud to be the first ever all-female team to hoist a LEGO® Masters Australia trophy.”

Brickman said: “It was super exciting having teams from other countries come and do LEGO® Masters Australia, mainly because whilst LEGO® is universal and doesn’t have a language, every country’s builders bring a different and unique style.

“Krystle and Michelle certainly did that, which made for some amazing builds. Not only did they blow us away with their builds, I think I learnt from them too.”

LEGO® Masters: Australia vs The World comes from producers Endemol Shine Australia (a Banijay Company). The series is adapted from an original UK format from Tuesday’s Child Productions and The LEGO® Group.

I still can’t believe that @krystlestarrx and I got to live out the this beautifully crazy experience. Being selected to compete in @legomastersau vs The World was one of the most incredible things I have ever done!
Going in, we knew that we wanted to make the time spent away from our families really count. We were determined to go as far as we possibly could; along the way we experienced lots of laughs, tears, hand cramps, late night chats, and most importantly growth. We learned from each other and learned so much about each other.
For our final build we wanted to stand out and do something that had never been done before, we knew we would have to work really hard to pull off such a huge build. We were determined to give it everything we had and we are so proud to be the first ever all female team to hoist a LEGO MASTERS trophy!!
To win with a build that has such a deep meaning for both of us makes it that much more special.
To everyone that helped make this happen, thank you for believing in us and giving us an opportunity to share a piece of us with Australia and The World

(Lots more pictures to come!! :heart:)
