For those following the show and all its zany antics (led by loveable prankster Hamish Blake), it's undeniable that these builders are impressive.
Each episode, cameras follow the LEGO experts and enthusiasts as they create to their heart's content. Considering the show itself films for hours on end, viewers may find themselves pondering about what isn't shown on screen.

A key question on many viewers lips; what happens to the builds once they're complete?
They take hours of excruciating work, they're the subject of triumph, the subject of despair... but audiences may be disappointed to find out that competition builds are not kept in tact.
That's right. Once an episode wraps, each team has a sorter who breaks down their model after the episode.
As for the building process itself, competitors have access to the Brick Pit - the mammoth brick supply of LEGO aficionados' dreams.
The famous Brick Pit.
Consisting of a whopping 4 million bricks, the LEGO Masters' Brick Pit is almost never-ending. For finales, an additional 20 000 specialty bricks are also brought in.
How much is it worth, you ask? According to Nine, the vault is valued at $1.2 million dollars.
