LEGO Masters Australiawill see eight pairs of passionate creators let loose on The Brick Pit, where 2.5 million LEGO bricks await, ready to build mind-blowing models and masterpieces that must be seen to be believed, as they compete for the $100,000 prize.
Kale, 41, and Bilsy, 34 (or Adam if we’re being formal), say they are here to do whatever it takes to win.
Here’s everything you need to know about LEGO Masters Kale and Bilsy.
Bilsy loved LEGO as a kid, but really got back into his hobby with a vengeance in his mid 20s.
It was the premature birth of Kale’s son six years ago that reignited his interest in building. He turned to LEGO to help him cope with the stress of spending hours feeling helpless in the hospital and found he was soon hooked.
Melbourne-based Kale even makes a living from his passion for LEGO, noting his job title as “brick artist and toy photographer”: building LEGO creations and taking detailed photographs which he sells as collectables – check out Frostbricks to find out more!
Gold Coast radio announcer and DJ Bilsy is the entertainer of the pair. He loves to entertain and convert real-world electrical objects into LEGO in his spare time.

These guys sure do love their LEGO!
Bilsy even has a dedicated LEGO room at home, plus two built-in cupboards and half a garage full of LEGO.
Where as father-of-two Kale, who is well known in the LEGO community, estimates his collection is nudging towards being worth a staggering one million bricks.
Kale nominates his favourite LEGO piece as the Minifigure because he loves “creating the small, beautiful and detailed worlds in which they live – and none of that would be possible without the humble mini fig”.
Bilsy, on the other hand, loves the original 2x4 brick. “It’s easy to get and everyone has access to it. And by using that one brick you can make so many things, with your imagination being your only limit.”
Their different styles and personalities might make these two the odd couple of LEGO MASTERS, but their combination should definitely put the competition on notice. Watch out, these two are in it to win it!
