With only six teams of builders remaining in the battle to be crowned LEGO MASTERS, they once again go head to head in the second episode of Channel 4’s latest LEGO show, LEGO MASTERS. Tonight’s episode revolves around making LEGO move. VP of Design at LEGO, Matthew Aston will be joined by Dr Shini Somara and Richard Osman to help judge the teams final builds. You can catch LEGO MASTERS this evening at 8pm on Channel 4 and if you missed Episode One, you can catch up anytime on All4.
The series is hosted by DJ and TV presenter Melvin Odoom. Each programme tests a wide array of disciplines from the playful to the technical to the unexpected and judging is led by Matthew Ashton, Vice President of Design for the LEGO Group. Joining Matthew in each round will be an array of expert judges from the fields of engineering, art and design and guest celebrity LEGO fans including Richard Osman, Bill Bailey and Dara O’Briain. In each programme, the teams who impress the most will progress to the next round until the finale, where just one pair will be crowned winners.
LEGO MASTERS Episode 2 – Movement
The search for UK and Ireland’s most talented Lego builders continues. 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.
