The longtime friends not only managed to impress hosts Hamish Blake and Ryan ‘Brickman’ McNaught with their storybook design, but they also beat rivals Trent and Josh, and Andrew and Damian in the final battle.
‘The chance to participate in Lego Masters was a childhood dream come true,’ Jackson said after his victory.
‘Finishing with the win has been absolutely unreal. We never thought we would be standing here today with the trophy in our hand.’
Impressed with the outcome, judge Brickman said: ‘Alex and Jackson really took what they had learned over the series and made something truly spectacular.’
It comes after Channel Nine and producers Endemol Shine revealed they were already on the hunt for contestants for the upcoming third season of the show.
