Last year, the UK reality competition series “LEGO Masters” began to branch out worldwide. Two international editions were announced for Germany and Australia. The latter was picked up by the Channel Nine network, with host Hamish Blake and a panel of judges headed by Australian LEGO Certified Professional Ryan McNaught.
Up until this week the only known info on the premiere for “LEGO Masters Australia” is that it’s this year. Thankfully, Channel Nine has finally broken silence on the date. A new trailer for the program reveals it’s only going to start two Sundays from now. That means April 28.
The teaser rehashes certain scenes from the first full trailer of the show from last month. We get another look at the big brick, minfigure and element depository for the 2-person teams’ use. We also see snippets of either the builds by the contestants or set pieces created by judge “Brickman” McNaught. The space rocket in on scene’s probably his.
Viewers also got to see more screen-time on the part of the teams in competition, from married couples to friends and more. One particularly prominent team is that of a teenager and his grandma. In one scene she reacts funnily to her grandson’s mild oath.
This “LEGO Masters” is brought to Channel Nine courtesy of Endemol Shine Australia. The winning pair that survives all challenges thrown their way will win a cash prize of AUS$100,000.
