    Both builds are going to be displayed? Which is good.

    The Best build actually won the Trophy.
    The type writer was great, as were the Jack-in-a-box and the Toy box.

    At one moment I thought they were going to give it to the kid for being a kid..
    although their build was also pretty good.

    I was really impressed by the final 2 builds, and how they managed to achieve so much in a mere 10 days. Very highly detailed builds all around, and I simply could not decide which team was better because they were both amazing in their own ways.

    The right team won (imho), though I have a nagging feeling that Thomas & Kobe only made it to the final because the producers wanted a child in at the last.  I think over the series, J&J had the edge over them.  Plus Thomas was an annoying control freak.

    But fair play - Gnomeworld was pretty cool, and a display like that is more 'typical' of a big Lego diorama than the guys' Sawaya-esqe model.

    Glad that they both get to display their work in the Lego House though - well deserved.

    Here's hoping for another (improved) series.

    It felt very awkward last night, when Kobe was berated by his dad so much. I know there is a certain amount of tension, but I didn't like the way he spoke to his son.

    fingers crossed for another series!

    I thought they were going to have a day like the previous challenges but ten days is insane! I think I'd be sick of the sight of lego after ten days of building (I'm guessing they got the weekend off somewhere in that?).

    Realised that you could have probably worked out the finalists from the clips they showed in previous episodes but really enjoyed the series over all. I wonder how it did among non-enthusiasts?

    Just watched and agree wholeheartedly. I wanted Nate and Steve to win from day one with their Chinese banquet.

    What an incredible build from Nate and Steve - they really were the most well-rounded builders of the competition, and they really created a jaw dropping display with their final effort.

    I really enjoyed the final episode; with fewer contestants, there was much more room for a focus on the bricks and the building process.  Great little series; brilliant to see our hobby - with adult builders at the forefront - highlighted in the mainstream.

    Just watched the final last night. Definitely think the best team won, whether overall or on the final build. No disrespect meant to the runners up, what they produced was brilliant, but for me, Nate and Steve's build kind of epitomized all sorts of things about Lego outside of their intended meaning.

    Yes, I felt that Nate and Steve won partly for the way they approached such a challenging build (so many techniques involved, and with lifesize people being new to them altogether!), but also because their display had a message which is perhaps an important part of how TLG see themselves as a company, and Lego as a product: the idea that regardless of our age, we all have a creative inner child who needs to get out and express that creativity. 

    That said, I was absolutely delighted with Nicolas and Kobe's build: in our house we're big fans of Rien Poortvliet's gnomes (kabouters), and seeing pictures from the books flash up on the screen as the team's inspiration made my day, as did seeing how imaginatively they created their gnomes' world. Really great attention to detail on both the landscape (that tree stump!) and the room contents, with the candlelit loo a favourite of mine, and a lovely rendition of Poortvliet's style. 

    It's great that they decided to include both models in the Lego House; I think visitors will love them.

    just got done watching the last 2 parts.
    both of the master builds was amazing.
    myself going in blind not knowing who build what and seeing the  master builds for myself i would have picked the gnome model but thats just me.
    in truth it would have been a hard call to pick one of the two.
    as i said the gnome model was the winner for me if i had been picking. however i did not get to pick.

    well done to the winners and runners up for the show. both did a amazing job with the last build. i do hope this is done again with age groups. like 8-17, 18-25 and 25+
    the why of picking the last 2. the kid's.. that 6 year old. was brimming with cute!
    and the boys.. lol... my self i could no follow the kids story's. but it made for a good way to get the last 2 teems.

    all in all the show was good and i do hope to see more of this next year.
