See the best and craziest Lego Masters creations so far
Get your brick on!
In Lego Masters, Fox's latest zany competition show, teams of builders must put their skills to the test during ambitious themed brick-building challenges. The winners will win a cash prize and be crowned — what else? — Lego Masters. Hosted by Lego Batman himself, Will Arnett, the show may be full of "amateur" builders, but their builds are seriously impressive. From giant space aliens to colorful mermaids and giant Ferris wheels, these builders bring to life some truly great things week after week. Scroll through for all of the best creations on the show, which we will be updating throughout the season.
Christian and Aaron's "Spaceland"
This theme park built around the site of a UFO crash was the winner of the first episode, and for good reason. The massive Ferris wheel was impressive in scope, and both it and the rollercoaster moved flawlessly. The little details — aliens, a mini Arnett in Lego form — fit the theme well and told a full story.
Mark and Boone's "Timber Town"
OK, so technically their vertical lift didn't work right, but if it had, "Timber Town" would have given "Spaceland" a run for its money as the top build. Mark and Boone's creation was massive, with everything perfectly detailed, down to the leaves on the trees, the log water ride, and the fire pit for roasting marshmellows. The theme was completely realized and unique, and the different levels and size of the roller coaster made this one of the most impressive creations, technical difficulties not withstanding.
Tyler and Amy's "The Sacrifice"
In episode 2, it was this newlywed couple's aptly named build that most impressed us (and the judges). Built to be destroyed per that episode's theme, their massive space alien featured movable, curved tentacles and a well built hero dropping a bomb straight into its mouth. The piece was destroyed perfectly, with the bomb falling right into the alien's mouth just before it all crumbled, as designed.
Mark and Boone's "Spaceship vs Robot"
This build gets extra points for creativity. In "Spaceship vs Robot," a little Lego couple can be seen playing a video game in their living room. Through the window (aka their TV) the video game comes to life. There's a giant Transformer-esque space robot, a unicorn, and more. What's not to love?
Sam and Jessica's "Mermaid"
Sam and Jessica thankfully overcame their issues earlier in the season to produce this beauty. Their task was to create the other half of an item, in this case a fire hydrant, and tell a story with it. From all angles their build shines with color and depth, and you can easily tell what you're looking at. They went the extra mile by adding little under the sea details, such as sea turtles and seahorses, which brought this underwater world to life.
Richard and Flynn's "Clockwork Man"
"Clockwork Man" features a village built beneath a clock that builds a clockwork man to make sure the timepiece never stops ticking, and the result is magical. The eyes and clock tick in tandem and the smile of the man fits perfectly next to the half of a clock that the builders had to work with. The theme is perfectly realized and the sculpting work is excellent, making this build the clear winner of episode 3.
Amy and Tyler's "Superbaby & The Hairball Heist"
Amy and Tyler were tasked with creating a fictional scene that represents both a comedy and a monster movie, and from first glance at their fun build, both genres come through. The Meowster coming through the floor is epic and terrifying, and the little cats and mice attempting to steal the milk in the fridge are adorable and easily recognizable. It's relatively simple but completely effective.
Mark and Boone's "Shark Song!"
Mark and Boone, on the other hand, were given romance and monster movie genres to incorporate into their creation. It's Jaws meets nuclear disaster meets romance, with lots of different levels and ambitious touches to boot. A special shout-out goes to the broken boardwalk with terrified Lego people running away from it. And unlike most of the other builds from this challenge, this one features moving elements in the form of the nuclear shark's arm and the fish sign in the middle of the town.
Aaron and Christian's "Attack on Sustainable City"
Perhaps the most impressive thing about this build is that it exists at all. In one of the season's most dramatic moments, Aaron and Christian's take on a sustainable city came crashing down just as they were wheeling it out at the end of the challenge. Luckily for them, the Lego gods had a trick up their sleeve: All of the builders got an extra four hours to add a monster element to their cities. Not only were Aaron and Christian able to add back all of the height of their original build, but they added a towering smog monster to boot. Each floor of their tower — by far the biggest build of the night — had little details that worked with the story. There was even a fully functioning elevator and wind turbines that spun, helping to make this creation a structural wonder of Lego magic.
Mark and Boone's "Pop's Food Carts"
What Mark and Boone's creation lacks in height, it makes up for in creativity. True to form, they brought their wacky and fun concept — a food cart that becomes so popular it grows giant, and gets terrorized when magic lightning strikes and the hot dogs turn into monsters — to life with lots of little details. There are actual cracks in the cement structures, little Lego people who don't want to give up their food even in the middle of a crisis (honestly, same), and so much color. And let's not forget the angry hot dog monsters, which somehow manage to be both scary and hilarious. It's truly a creative marvel.
Amy and Tyler's "Classic Brick Bridge"
The couple's build was the first to do the seemingly impossible: beat the record set by Aaron and Christian, who built a bridge able to withstand 445 lbs. of added weight. Amy and Tyler's managed to withstand 1,000 lbs. before they were told to stop adding weight for safety reasons. Their engineering was clearly impressive, but what helps their bridge really stand out are its romantic and whimsical details, from the butterflies to the Lego ivy covering the old stone bridge.
Mark and Boone's "Beam Bridge"
The second team to create a bridge that withstood at least 1,000 lbs. was Mark and Boone. The bearded builders' creation featured a thicker design than most of the others, but they made use of all the extra bricks in the form of a decorative and futuristic design and colors. Paneling on the sides gives it some extra dimension and uniqueness. The architectural marvel was enough to earn them the Golden Brick — which enables them to avoid elimination should they choose to use it — and they once again walked away the winners of this challenge.
Amy and Tyler's "Storybook"
The task for this particular challenge was to bring to life the Mad Libbed storybook ideas of a child. In Amy and Tyler's case, that meant building a giant carrot monster complete with an army of scary broccoli (clearly this child has issues with vegetables) — and they delivered in spades. Their characters are immediately recognizable and perfectly childlike, with lots of colors and fantastical elements (broccoli bats!). The multiplatform layout gave it some depth and helped separate the parts of the story so that they really stood out. This build was the clear winner of episode 7.
Mark and Boone's "Evil Pizza Lair"
In this heroes vs. villains challenge, Mark and Boone were tasked with creating an evil mastermind scene starring a "villainous bear costume guy" and an "evil pizza costume guy." Their build (seen here on the leftmost table) is appropriately ridiculous. There are pizza minions complete with a pizza oven conveyor belt. Civilians are getting "cheesed." And evil bear costume guy has a super computer, with working flashing lights! From the creation of the little minions (the conveyor belt) to the little guys leaving the lair and terrorizing the fully realized town above, this build tells a story, and manages to somehow make two silly characters super villains.
Amy and Tyler's "EZ-PZ"
Of the three Star Wars-inspired droids built in the show's semifinals, Amy and Tyler's was the one who stood out. EZ-PZ is a Cantina droid, serving Wookiee cookies and blue milk to his patrons, and he actually looks like something taken straight out of the Star Wars universe! The adorable little guy, with his rounded head and wide-set eyes, is nervous because it's his first day on the job, and the tray wobbles precariously accordingly. Despite having major issues during the building phase, Amy and Tyler managed to build a fully movable and memorable droid just in the nick of time.
Mark and Boone's "Imperial Bunker on Endor"
In the show's final semifinals challenge, the teams were tasked with recreating an iconic Star Wars moment. Mark and Boone chose the Imperial bunker on Endor scene from Return of the Jedi, and they nailed it. At a distance, the contrast between the coldness of the bunker and the warmth of the Ewok's world is apparent, and the foliage (different levels, fallen trees, a rope bridge connecting other trees) stands out. Looking closer, you see all the little details, from the primitive tools the Ewoks used, to the clear bricks under the little bear-like creatures to make it appear as if they're jumping and running around, to the speeder bike with Ewoks flying off of it. There's even Han, Leia, C-3PO, and R2-D2. To top it off, their AT-ST, which gave them so many problems towards the end of their building phase, looks amazing. The scene is immediately recognizable, and once again showcases the bearded builders' eye for detail and technical expertise.
Mark and Boone's "Artopia"
Although Tyler and Amy's build ultimately won, the bearded builders' creation was the winner of our hearts. Not only was their build the most impressive in size, but it had the technical aspects and story to boot. They created a paintbrush that activates the walls to turn, completely reinventing the build in the process — you can't ask for more! As always, it was the little, humorous details that further elevated Mark and Boone's build. They had mini-figs flying off of the paint hoses, slipping in paint, jamming out in bands, and more. It was creative, immersive, colorful, and an overall Lego masterpiece. There's no way around it: Mark and Boone got robbed.
