Airdate: Lego Masters

Nine has now confirmed Lego Masters will begin on Sunday nights when ratings resume.

The 9 part Endemol Shine series is hosted by Hamish Blake with Lego expert Ryan “Brickman” McNaught as judge.

Eight teams will compete for $100,000 and a Lego trophy.

Michael Healy, Director of Television for Nine, said: “Lego Masters is set to redefine family entertainment in 2019. This program is a celebration of creativity and wonderment and we believe it will have broad appeal across the generations.”

It premieres 7pm Sunday April 28 and is expected to continue across several weeknights.

Eight pairs of passionate creators will be let loose on The Brick Pit, where 2.5 million gleaming Lego bricks await, ready to build mind-blowing models and masterpieces that must be seen to be believed. And there’s not an instruction manual in sight. The competition will be fierce, and only the strongest and most creative team will survive.

In his element as host is Hamish Blake, alongside resident judge Ryan “Brickman” McNaught, the Southern Hemisphere’s only Lego-certified professional. Lego fans and families alike should prepare to witness truly incredible Lego creations being brought to life, brick by tiny brick.

With imagination their sole limitation, over nine episodes – each with a unique challenge – these inspired geniuses will conceptualise and craft some of the most ambitious and impressive Lego creations ever attempted.

Brimming with wonder, edge-of-your-seat suspense and awe-inspiring artistry, the competition will crown one team the Lego Masters, holding the Lego trophy aloft and earning the $100,000 prizemoney.


  1. To my mind this is the wrong timeslot for this kind of program. It does not really fit into the big-scale shiny floor reality slot seeming like a narrower, more niche concept. I would have thought it a great fit for Friday/Saturday nights as a once a week proposition. Treating it like the standard stripped reality seems a bit odd for this kind of program. I suspect the audience will be relatively limited both in gender and other demographic indicators.

    • I’m not sure how limiting this would be to audiences if it is fun and creative.
      It seems to be aimed at families and similarly agree they once a week would be good for 9 weeks.
      The oversaturation of content by programmers the “in your face scheduling” is off putting and generally discourages me from watching anything that is on more than twice a week!

    • MasterChef won’t start on April 29 because Bachelor in Paradise will still be on air. Nine’s press release has said Lego Masters will be shown three times a week across three weeks (9 episodes in total), so the show should finish on Tuesday May 14, with The Voice starting the week after. Depending on how Lego Masters rate, Ten may have to push back MasterChef until after LM finishes.
