Applications for the programme are now open, as the show searches for the country’s most innovative LEGO builders for this one-of-a-kind competition.

The LEGO Masters format has been a hit all around the globe, with everyone 16 years and over able to apply at tvnz.co.nz/LEGOMASTERS.

Teams of two will be put through their paces in a series of challenges designed to put their LEGO building skills and imaginations to the test under the watchful eye of Brickmaster and series’ judge, Robin Sather.

Canadian-born Sather was the first ever LEGO Certified Professional (LCP) — a programme he helped create, of which there are only 21 professionals in the world.

His passion for the LEGO brick started when he was a young boy, and it’s never stopped. In his time he's built incredible designs such as an Egyptian sphinx, a giant globe, and detailed castles.

Sather hopes to find New Zealand’s best brick builders:

"I know that there are a lot of amazing LEGO fans in New Zealand, so I’m excited to have the opportunity to showcase your amazing Kiwi LEGO builders."
