LEGO Masters Season 3 – Episode 5 Recap

After not being particularly thrilled with last nights results it will be good to have a nice relaxing reward challenge tonight. I’m not ready for another elimination just yet.

Before we get in to the building we have to stand around and have a bit of a chat.

Hamish confirms that this is not an elimination today. Up for grabs is immunity.

LEGO Masters Season 3 – Episode 4 Recap

It’s Sunday night and depending on where you live it could be a long weekend. The only way tonight could be better is with some LEGO. Let’s get in to LEGO Masters Episode 4.

The door is up and our teams are presented with two wheels. The gameshow type that is.

Today there are two builds. The second of today’s builds will be an elimination. Yep, we are losing another team tonight.

The first build is called Fantastical Beasts. Each team will spin both wheels and have to combine the two animals they spin up.

LEGO Masters Season 3 – Episode 3 Recap

It’s elimination night. Always tough to see a team go home but unfortunately we can’t just watch every team build night after night with no outcome.

The teams arrive to discover Hamish and Brickman enclosed in a giant bubble. Do they have COVID? Is this a quarantine thing? No it’s the theme of tonights build. Each team will have to build something inside a snow globe.

Scott and Owen get to head out for the day. I hope they have a nice time.

Is that a green Mario? NO IT’S LUIGI!

Great news for all they player twos out there today with official details of the LEGO Super Mario Adventures with Luigi Starter Course.

71387_alt2

This is a full starter course complete with everything you need to play the LEGO Super Mario “game”. In theory you could get this set and never actually get the Mario.

The included Luigi is fully interactive just like his brother. It isn’t entirely clear how it will work if you have both characters. Hopefully it enable some kind of two-player experience.

The Luigi starter course has 280 pieces and comes with Pink Yoshi, Boom Boom and Bone Goomba figures.

The set will cost $89.99 here in Australia and can be pre-ordered here before it’s August 1st release. [affiliate link]

LEGO Masters Season 3 – Episode 2 Recap

It’s time for episode 2 and this one is going to get messy!

If you haven’t watched the episode yet turn away now, there are spoilers below!

Tonight is Castle’s vs Cannonballs. That’s right it’s more slow motion destruction. These episodes are always fun but it can come down to the luck of whether your slow-mo looks good or bad.

lego-masters-s3_ep-2_1

The teams arrive and are confronted by a bowling lane and some brick built pins. But that’s just to demonstrate the concept of destruction. They will all have to build a massive castle.

LEGO Masters Season 3 – Episode 1 Recap

And we are back! Just like last year I am going to try my best do a recap of each episode of LEGO Masters Season 3. If you haven’t watched the episode yet turn away now.

We open with Brickman and Hamish and a little bit of COVID awkwardness.

And here are our teams. They come in and all stand 1.5m away from the other teams. Welcome to the COVID edition of LEGO Masters.

LEGO Website team frantically trying to find a Time Teacher set

Once upon a time LEGO released a set called Time Teacher, to teach children how to tell the time.

Clearly the team in charge of VIP promotions never got a copy of this set because it seems nobody knows when 9am is.

For those of you who missed out on the Ulysses Space Probe set, I’m sorry. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to sit and refresh the page all day waiting for somebody at LEGO to finally make it live.

To those of you who did get one, congratulations.
