Robin Slater — LEGO Certified Professional

The massively popular reality TV series LEGO Masters will be arriving in Aotearoa — New Zealand in 2022. This will give Kiwi LEGO enthusiasts the opportunity to compete for the coveted title: LEGO Master.

Now LEGO fanatics won’t just be able to marvel at the epic designs from afar — they’ll get the chance to build them under the eye of the series’ judge and Brickmaster Robin Sather.

Based in Canada, Robin Sather will soon be travelling to New Zealand to start the hunt to find the best LEGO builders in New Zealand.

“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! We’re going have a lot of fun together!” he promises.

Robin helped to create and develop the LEGO Certified Professional program, as well as the LEGO Ambassador program.

He has had a passion for LEGO since his childhood which has only grown stronger over the years. This has led him to create some impressive designs.

Robin’s company, Brickville DesignWorks, began in the spring of 2004, with the goal of using LEGO bricks and products to produce events, displays, exhibits, and custom creations.

His exhibits have toured prominent Canadian science centres and museums.

To get a more rounded picture from applicants, there is one question that asks what you consider to be your most notable non-LEGO achievement.

Part of the LEGO Masters format is to have contestants work in pairs. You will be asked to nominate a companion brick buddy as part of the sign-up process.
