Lego Masters was on a bit of a break, so if a bit of recap for episode six is needed, be sure to click over here. That challenge had players duking it out in a demolition derby. This week, players had to blow the competition away, one brick at a time!
This episode of Lego Masters began with a giant fan blowing all over the studio. This is where we learned about a new challenge called Bricking Wind. The teams had twelve hours to build a windmill that could withstand high-speed winds. The ultimate goal was for the build to withstand 60 MPH winds! While the sturdiness of the build was a significant factor in securing a win, teams also had to tell a story. As always, the participants were asked to throw caution to the wind and blow us away! Let us take a look at the builds and the speeds at which their bricks flew away.
|Participants||Build||Top Wind Speed|
|Zack and Wayne||Oasis||55 MPH|
|Mark and Steven||Wind Power Terraforming||65 MPH|
|Caleb and Jacob||Portal To Atlantis||55 MPH|
|Bryan and Lauren||Tidal Turbine Tango||50 MPH|
|Maria and Philip||New Tinkerton City||20 MPH|
|Dave and Richard||Gnome Matter The Weather||50 MPH|
|Natalie and Michelle||A Child’s World||45 MPH|
The Favorites and Least Favorites
Unfortunately, someone had to go home, which brings us to the bottom two teams. Bryan and Lauren’s build, Tidal Turbine Tango, was considered too busy by the judges. In addition, they felt the build was too gray and, overall, not aesthetically pleasing. On the other hand, Maria and Philip’s piece, New Tinkerton City, was pretty; however, the judges felt it was too simple. It also did not withstand the higher winds the other teams did. So the couple leaving their mini-figs on the shelf this week was Maria and Philip.
Odds and Ends
In conclusion, the competition had players shaken. The builds are getting more detailed and exciting to unfold. While it has been fun watching Lego Masters, I sure am glad I am not part of the show! In the end, if you want to get your brick on, be sure to watch this episode and more on Hulu.
