LEGO Masters Season 3 – Grand Finale Recap

It’s grand finale night. After 13 episodes of intense LEGO building we will tonight find out who gets to lift the LEGO Masters trophy for 2021.

Before we begin we get a recap of the journey so far. I watched all the episodes, I don’t need to see this bit.

The brick pit is clean and ready to go. The trophy is there for the taking. Let’s go!

Our teams arrive and they all look incredibly excited.


LEGO Masters Season 3 – Episode 13 Recap

It’s time for the penultimate episode. Today we find out the three teams that will be competing in tomorrow night’s Grand Finale.

Our top 4 teams arrive and immediately spot a giant tree. It’s a very impressive tree.


Hamish reminds us that today is an elimination build.

Today’s build is called “Out on a limb”. Each team will get one limb from the tree and they’ve got free rein to build something that fits in on a tree.
