After two pairs of builders were knocked out after the first challenge last week, LEGO MASTERS round two airs tonight on Channel 4.
The teams must make moving masterpieces in tonight’s episode of LEGO MASTERS, showing tonight on Channel 4 at 8pm. With the competition hotting up, the first unplanned build really puts the builders to the test before they construct their pre-planned fairground MOCs.
This time the teams must step up a gear and make their models move. They have to build a funfair with at least one spectacular supersized mechanical ride, complete with moving parts and characterful stories in miniature form. While an inventive spinning laser ride draws the crowds to one fairground, a sandwich-stealing shark is a pest at another. The judges also throw them a curve ball with their unplanned challenge, where the teams find themselves having to quickly build a vehicle with no time to prepare. But that’s not the only surprise in store, as halfway through the challenge the judges give each team a new mode of transport and announce that they must create a hybrid of the two.
One team must go home, so who will rise to the challenge and who has laid their very last brick in the Build Room? This week, returning to cast his critical eye over their creations, is The LEGO Group’s Matthew Ashton. Joining him to judge how the models move is mechanical engineer Dr Shini Somara and along for the ride is Pointless presenter and Lego fan Richard Osman.
The series is four episodes long, with the first episode airing tonight on Channel 4 at 8.00pm.
