Hi K-Zoners! How awesome is the shiny new K-Zone site, and The K-Zone Blog? Don’t worry, I’ll still be blogging about anything and everything awesome – you can count on me to always be looking for the best movies, books, comics, toys, games, shows and activities.
Now, what’s more awesome than LEGO?
Hmm? Sorry, I was trying to build a very complicated LEGO structure – kind of half lightsaber, half tree… more of a lightsaber tree really… Anyway! It’s that kind of creative LEGO thinking (but about 100 times better) that makes the new show, LEGO Masters, so awesome!
In LEGO Masters, eight teams of two will be faced with a series of challenges, designed to put their LEGO skills to the ultimate test. Their design, creativity, engineering and construction abilities will be judged, and the final team will win the glory of being crowned Australia’s LEGO Masters champion, a suh-weet trophy made completely out of LEGO, and $100,000! There are nine episodes, and the challenges are always changing! Some builds take up to 28 hours to complete, and there are absolutely no instructions involved.
Our fave LEGO Certified Professional, Ryan McNaught, AKA The Brickman, is the extremely qualified person who will be judging the creations in every episode. He’s also joined by another host, Hamish Blake, who… uhhh… doesn’t really have the same level of LEGO expertise, but he does really love LEGO!
I was lucky enough to head over to the LEGO Certified Store in Bondi Junction, Sydney, to meet up with Hamish, Ryan McNaught, and a few contestants.
