They’re the champions of Australia’s newest reality show LEGO Masters, taking home the winning trophy and $100,000 in prize money during Tuesday night’s final.

And on Wednesday, Henry Pinto and his LEGO-obsessed friend, Cade Franklin revealed what they will be doing with their $100,00 prize money.

‘I will be buying some more LEGO. I have a list of what I will be purchasing,’ Cade told The Daily Telegraph.

‘And I really want to take my family to LEGOland in Denmark,’ he added.

However, the men later revealed they will share their winnings with their significant others.  

‘Whatever my wife wants to do with it, she can. She held the fort with three children while I did this. If she, maybe, gives me $1,000 to buy some more LEGO, she can do what she likes with the rest of it,’ Henry said.

The two friends were crowned the first ever winners of Lego Masters Australia after building an incredible depiction of the Greek God Poseidon. 

Their 18,000-block mythical construction – which took 28 hours to build – came complete with a large golden trident, a roaring serpent and a sinking trireme.

Poseidon’s head also came with light-up eyes to accentuate the creation’s terrifying look.

Before appearing on the show, both men were recognised for their craftsmanship. 

Cade has won a Guinness World Record for building a life-sized caravan from 288,000 Lego bricks, while Henry has also been recognised for his brick-building ability.   

The show’s finale comes just days after Channel Nine announced they would be renewing Lego Masters for a second season.

The family-friendly offering has enjoyed surprisingly high ratings, topping both MasterChef and House Rules during its three-week run with average national audience figures of more than one million.
