LEGO Masters Season 2, Finale – Recap

Tonight is the night. After weeks of incredible LEGO building we find out just who takes home the title of LEGO Masters for 2020.

Will it be Trent & Josh, Damian & Andrew or Jackson & Alex? Let’s find out.

Obviously this is going to have major spoilers if you haven’t seen the episode yet.

We start with a recap of what has been an absolutely outstanding season of LEGO building.

LEGO Masters Season 2, Episode 10 – Recap

It’s the second last episode! One team will be going home and the remaining three will return tomorrow night to battle it out for the title.

There are two builds tonight, the first one is for an advantage.

Hamish reveals that the first build has something to do with a full sized Harley that Brickman and his team build.

While inspecting the model Hamish knocks it over. Everybody is shocked. But SURPRISE – that was planned all along. The Harley was a pinata. Danni is the first to figure it out.

The first challenge is called Smash & Grab. The brickpit is shut and all they’ve got to build with is what they can grab off the floor.

It’s just like building at home. Kind of.

LEGO Masters Season 2, Episode 9 – Recap

It’s the final elimination before finals week and the stakes are high for the four teams building tonight.

The teams arrive and there is a new fancy black curtain, clearly hiding something.

After winning yesterday Damian and Andrew hand back their golden brick and head off for the day.

The curtain drops and we get… four giant fish tanks. It’s an underwater build!

LEGO Masters Season 2, Episode 8 – Recap

As great as it would have been to have this episode last Monday, it’s still awesome that we finally get it – that’s right its Star Wars night tonight on LEGO Masters.

ep-8-s2-lego-masters8

The contestants arrive and the room provides no hint as to what is coming. After a bit of a chat the roller door opens and in comes a squadron of Stormtroopers. And in the most amazing scene in the entire last two series of LEGO Masters one of the stormtroopers hits his head on the door on the way in. Whoever was responsible for that gag deserves a Logie.

LEGO Masters Season 2, Episode 7 – Recap

Today is Star Wars Day – May The 4th be with you – but tonight’s episode of LEGO Masters is not the Star Wars episode. Somebody at Channel 9 really stuffed up the schedule. If you are angry enough to switch off I understand. If not stick around while I recap tonight’s episode.

Tonight is another elimination episode so another team is heading home.

Damian and Andrew decide not to play their golden brick.

The teams are ushered to stand at their desks. Immediately they all notice that there are large baseplates fixed to the top and edge but surprise there are also baseplates attached to the underside of the table.

Tonight’s challenge is called Above and Below. The build time is 12 hours.

ep-7-s2-lego-masters4

Andrew and Damian are given the chance to use their Jordon brick and it’s finally time. Perfect time for it I think as it means they don’t have to keep getting up off the floor to race to the brick pit.

LEGO Masters Season 2, Episode 6 – Recap

It’s Sunday night and for some people it’s also a long weekend. What could be better? Oh yeah – A new episode of LEGO Masters.

It’s an elimination episode tonight and Tim and Danni are out of here after winning in the last episode.

Brickman pulls the cover off a giant picture frame lined with baseplates. The challenge today is 3D art. The frame is deep but Brickman is expecting builds that don’t just make use of the frame’s depth but also jump out of the frame.

ep-6-s2-lego-masters10

The build time is 12 hours.

LEGO Masters Season 2, Episode 5 – Recap

It’s Monday night and we’ve got a fun episode to look forward to. After the unfortunate events yesterday we are pleased to inform you that nobody is going home tonight. This one is for immunity in the next episode.

ep-5-s2-lego-masters5

The teams arrive to find a brick built dinner setting. Andrew suggests that they have to build something and eat it. That could be an interesting challenge.

Hamish reveals what’s actually going on – shake tables. The challenge is called Make & Shake. They have to build a 1.2m tall 32×32 tower, which will then be subjected to varying levels of shake.

Damian and Andrew decide not to get Jordie assistance.

Build time is 8 hours.

Damian and Andrew decide to build a wizard tower with a lot of technic inside. The wizard tower is a good idea if it does come down to aesthetics.

Tim and Danni are going with a design of 4 walls linked to a central pillar that is weighted at the bottom. At this stage they aren’t thinking about aesthetic.

Jay and Stani are known for their towers so the pressure is on them. They decide to go with the biggest tyres they can find as shock absorbers. This was the idea that came to mind for me too.

Jackson and Alex are just going to brute force it and build a solid block. Brickman doesn’t think they are going to make it but to be honest he’s been terrible at estimating times so far this year. If they go flat out I reckon they can make it.

Jennifer and Jodie are going with a modern style building with a pretty solid core.

Trent and Josh are going full technic. It’s an interesting idea that could work out.

Jackson and Alex are still going flat out. It’s a race against time!

Danni has a brilliant idea – she’s going to turn their build into a giant popcorn bucket that spills popcorn everywhere. It’s a great way to utilise the shaking into their aesthetic.

Alex throws out a “cop it Brickman”. I’m loving their energy today.

Jen and Jodie have a mismeasurement issue.

Unsurprisingly Jay and Stani hit the height first.

Damian spots that Andrew has left a 1×1 brick gap in their build.

Jackson and Alex hit their height with time to spare so that get stuck in to the aesthetics.

Trent and Josh appear to be include references to previous winning builds.

Now lets get shaking!

First up is the Technic build of Trent and Josh. They quickly get up to level 4 before the sharks go. At level 7 their build finally gives up. That looked great.

Next we have Jennifer and Jodie. Their build has a join that could be a weak point. They get to level 6 before their build splits at the join.

Jackson and Alex‘s turn and their build isn’t just solid, it actually looks nice. Their solid build is going to destroy the shake plate. They managed to get all the way up to 10 without a major failure. They could win this.

Damian and Andrew have a great aesthetic design, even with the 1×1 brick missing. They get the whole table dancing around the room at level 10 but their build holds.

Jay and Stani went with the shock absorbers but that proves to be a weak point with their whole tower falls over at level 6.

Danni and Tim are next with their giant popcorn bag tower. Quickly getting up to level 10 their build holds. The popcorn flying everywhere was a great touch.

That means there are 3 teams that beat the shake plates and Ryan will decide the winner based on the overall aesthetic.

Tim and Danni win it! They were the only team that used the shaking as part of their build and that got them over the line. These two are safe from the next elimination which is a 3D artwork challenge.

 

 

LEGO Masters Season 2, Episode 3 – Recap

Here we are with Episode 3, and unfortunately for one team it’s going to be their last.

Spoilers for episode 3 if you haven’t already watched it.

Tim and Danni are getting strategic with light up shoes. Let’s see how that works out for them.

Summer and Iona get to take the day off so head out.

Andrew and Damian opt not to play either of their bricks. By not playing the Golden Brick they will be taking part in the elimination build off. They’ll also have to do all the running as they keep their Flash Jordon Brick for now too.

A mysterious brick-built book arrives and Hamish reveals the theme for today’s build – build a scene from a fairytale. It’s a very open brief with lots of options.

ep-3-s2-lego-masters3

There’s 12 hours for this build.

LEGO Masters Season 2, Episode 2 – Recap

Here we are with episode 2 – and things are going to get explosive.

Warning: Spoilers for anybody that hasn’t seen the episode obviously.

The challenge is officially called Hero Shot and it’s a little bit different to last year’s LEGO destruction episode. Rather than a variety of different ways to destroy the builds everybody will have their model blown up. The difference will be that each team will get a minifigure to be the feature of their build, with the explosion taking place behind them. Hence the Hero Shot name.

ep-2-s2-lego-masters20

Each team will get one of 4 different additions to their explosion; chalk, glitter, ‘water’ (blue slime really) and thick green slime.

LEGO Masters Season 2, Episode 1 – Recap

LEGO Masters season 2 is here with an action packed first episode. Here’s my quick recap of all the action.

Spoilers if you haven’t seen the episode – obviously.

lm-s2-e01

There’s a real sense of excitement as the teams limbo their way under the roller door. It’s like those scenes of people rushing in to Aldi when they have a really good special buy.

The teams all gather for an introduction from Hamish. Before we get in to the actual building there’s a few things to get out of the way. Specifically a comically large wooden crate.
