Recap | Lego Masters on Channel 9 crowns Team USA wins

Lego Masters on Channel 9 – 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.”
