Round 8 is officially over!

It is now in the hands of the judges to decide who will come out victorious!

Good luck to both our builders!

Iron Graves

Hey Benjamin, which of these graves do you want? While you were busy watching a movie, I was burying your chances at winning this round! Now if my memory isn’t too hazy, this is my 7th build, meaning that the contest is over! Thanks for watching everybody!

Unscheduled maintenance

Sorry I am late! Busy dealing with some “engine trouble” one my way back from my beach house! It was nice of you to send a boat to try to find me, but you seem to have forgotten the rescue part of your rescue mission!

The movie wasn’t so hot

You still there Grant? I guess my ship didn’t reach you in time. But the movie is just about over, so it’s time to wake up. I’ll drive you home, buddy.

A drop of Nelson’s blood wouldn’t do us any harm

Since I haven’t heard anything from ye, Grant, I can only assume yer reception is bad indeed! Aaargh ye ok? No worries, I’ll just send me ship by yer little shack to rescue ye. For meself, I see only smooth sailing from here on out.

Can you hear me now?

How’s the reception out there on your rock? I’ve got five bars, here. And since this is my ninth build, I’m just out relaxing with my oldest son. I hope you’re not stressing too much, with several more builds towering over you!

Life On The Rocks

You think you’re cool because your Jeep can climb over rocks? Silly Benjamin, I LIVE on the rocks. Prepare to sleep with the fishes!

(Also those tears are tears of JOY!)

Robots make poor life choices

I’m getting ready to clean up this competition with my 51-MO/CS robot. Fairly certain those are Grant’s tears on the floor of Bay 51…

Crossing the Rubicon

Beetles are cool, but it takes a Jeep to cross the mountains. I think I can see your chances of victory dwindling far off on the horizon, Grant, but it’s so small from up here. Better start climbing, or are you like a bicycle and too tired?

The Blue Beetle Brigade

That’s great Benjamin, but you aren’t going to have any wood to use if you don’t first deal with this insect infestation! Now quit bugging me and get back to building.

Every builder needs a garage

No wonder you have been so slow at building – you’ve been lounging about and watching the birds! I’ve been out working in the shop, making some sawsome builds.

A Modern Study

Why don’t you have a seat and take some time to think about how to step up your game. Personally, I will be climbing to victory!

The Legolex Sand Collection

Thanks for watching, folks! It is now time to hear a word from one of our premier sponsors, the Legolex Sand Collection by everyone’s favorite luxury watch company!

The Old Mill

If your tortoise is thirsty after all that walking, he can feel free to mill around in my pond. But I hope you’re not feeling the grind, yet, Grant!

Oh, and the water wheel is motorized and can spin. Check out the video.


Your last build left me a little shell-shocked! Not to worry though, mine is still in tact and heading slowly for the finish line.

Don’t tread on me

With all these creatures about, you had better tread carefully! You can tank me for the advice later. I’m gunning for victory here, myself.

The Experiment

No sleeping over here! Just trying to contain a monster far more deadly than a snake!

The Blue Sand Viper

Sssssstill sssssssleeping, Grant? Better watch your ssssssstep, you might get bit!

Eiffel Tower

And with one last towering achievement, this round comes to an end.

Thanks for an awesome competition Jonas! It’s been a fun month. You are an incredibly talented builder and I was privileged to compete against you. Now let’s both enjoy some well earned sleep 🙂

Need a Straw?

This is the last straw…. or is it?


Time to work out for the last little bit!

Initiate Hyperspace Jump!

Hold on for after the jump!

X-34 Striker

Zoom Zoom, Pew Pew!

Safety First!

Don’t fall over yet, there’s still more to come

Back and Forth

The ball’s firmly in your court and it’s going to stay there

The Jolly Blacksmith

Because I’m about to beat you over the head


My tune is still ringing and I’m still singing


Because I’m going to wash you away with my slew of builds.

Fire! Fire!

Sure have! Now if you’re all done then, let the barrage begin!

Room between the IronBuilders

Ever thought of that we are part of something bigger?

GIGABYTE G4M-XPZ Motherboard

Neither am I, in fact, I’m just getting started.

Photos taken yesterday – I guess that great minds think alike 😉

ASUS P9X79-E WS – Motherboard

You might want to look for extra processing power, I’m not slowing down.

Fishing Rod

After tomorrow we can go fishing and leave this all behind.

Steampunk Brass Bug

*blare of a trumpet*

One day left to let off steam.


You know the drill.

One more view.

What’s Brewing?

Only a couple days left Jonas and I’m brewing up something special just for you.

VW Dune Buggy

No snow on the dune today.
But seems like you are snowed in.

Snowed In

I sure hope that you’re not snowed in


You may have balls, but are you ready for the final ride?

LotR Pinball

One does not simply tease his way into Iron Builder. But I’ve got balls.

Here you can see more details and a video of the functions.

Tread Carefully

Posting teasers again? You’d better tread carefully….

MP4-29 Mixer

And I’m listening to the best beats

Pizza Surprise

Enjoying the best pizza in the galaxy.

Cloud 9

That’s OK, I’m sitting on cloud nine. How about you?

Ready for a Carrera race?

Your gun won’t help you when you lose track of me.


You’ll have to try harder than that. This time, I do in fact have the bigger gun 😉


Nice try with that Iron-Build-Inator.

Sector AT.10

I think that my gang can deal with any monsters you might have up your sleeve.

Study Time

You might want to start taking some notes, Jonas.


The only survivor huh? It looks like someone just dropped the ball.

The Survivor

You’re a pretty bad scientist, you wasted the whole planet.
But I’m the only survivor.

And a picture of his back.


Stand back! I’m going to try science!

Water Lilies

Just stay in your hole then, I rather enjoy the lovely scenery.

Forbidden Fortress

My fortress is impenetrable!

Under The Sea

I’m swimming with the fishes instead!

Aren’t you a little small for this throne?

If you choose to live with the bugs, I’ll stay here.

Bugging Out

Am I bugging you yet?


That’s nothing to write home about. Holes are not my type anyway.


I’m going to punch some holes through you!

I found a key!

Creativity is key.

Toasted Knight

You disturbed my sleep! I shall roast you, you little Tim can!

I Want to Touch It

I brought some balloons just for you!

Strike From Above

You’d better watch out below, it’s crazy what kinds of things can come from the sky.


I knew it was time to get working!


Your time has come!

Grab and Go

Watch out, or I’ll grab you from behind!

Are You Thinking what I’m Thinking?

I’ve got a nuke!

District 9 Exosuit

I’ve got the bigger guns!

Prepare for Termination

Because you’re about to be terminated!

What’s Your Fortune?

I’ve seen your fortune Jonas, and it isn’t very good.

Architecture – London Eye

I didn’t want to reinvent the wheel but the view up here is amazing.


Time to make the chimi-f*cking-changas!

Fire Truck

I don’t know about you, but I’m on fire.

A Challenger Approaches

‘Tis but a scratch, my good sir. No tears here.

International Space Station

Good for you. Nobody can hear you cry in space.

What’s Cooking?

Let’s skip the haggling, shall we? I’d much rather get cooking instead.

Boba Fett

There’s a price on your head and I’ve come to collect.

Church Organ

Can’t hear you. But better start praying!

Don’t You Fret

My bricklink order might not have arrived yet, but I’ve still got some new tunes to sing.

The Rainbow Fish

Careful carrying that safe across the dock, or you’ll end up sleeping with the fishes.

Is it secret? Is it safe?

You keep them coming if you must. I already have a safe that’s full and just waiting to be opened.

LEGO Factory Kornmarken in Billund

I’ll just keep them coming. I’ve got a warehouse to fill.

PotC – Governor Swann

After two days of birthday party I’m back to bust you!

I Can’t Hear You

I think you were trying to say something, but for some reason I can’t hear you.


There’s no where on the seven seas that you can go where I can’t catch you.

Bon Voyage!

I don’t sea any new builds from you. Where’d you go?

Oil Rig

I’ve still got more than enough oil in the tank. How about you Jonas?


You know what they say, don’t bring a skeleton to a gun fight.

Museum of Natural Science

I have a bone to pick with you!

Choo Choo!

Looks like it’s time to blow off some steam.

Ready to Plunder

Well you might have to wait a while, I’ve taken to the air.

Transforming Viking from Starcraft 2. Check out the transformed version

StarCaft2 Siege Tank – Siege Mode

Got no patience for sitting around. It’s BOOM time!”

Here you can see further shots of the tank mode and how it transforms.

Teddy Bear Picnic

I’d rather say that it’s been a picnic.

Lets light this up!

This looks like a piece of cake so far.

May the blow-dryer be with you!

Sounds like nothing but hot air!

I blow-dried first.

Wild Ride

Oh, I’m more than ready for a wild ride.

Mad Max – Desert Bike

That fancy watch won’t help you in the wasteland. Wouldn’t want to win this just because you got lost in a tiny sandstorm.

Take a look at the other side.

Time’s Up

Too bad your time’s up. I think you’d better run.

Bright Prospects

Sorry, had to get my binoculars first to spot your entry.

War of the Worlds

Watching and waiting is fun and all, but it’s time for war!

Tools of the Trade

Exploring not building? Well I suppose how you spend your time is up to you. Either way we’ve both got a lot of work ahead of us. Good thing I brought the right tools for the job.

Planetary Rover

Jonas to earth: “Just landed. Its a bit chilly here on planet IB-4_8, and totally deserted. Seems like I made it here first, lets see if there’s any competition around. I’ll hop back into my rover and go exploring.”

And the seed part is…

This round’s seed part is the Technic, Pin Connector Round 2L with Slot in sand blue.

I hate to shut the door on your chances Moko, but there’s only space for one iron builder here!

Video of the function.

Time Bomb

I’ve been trying all kinds of new builds lately, so I figured I’d make something right up my alley! I better quit stalling though, I have some builds to finish!


Im really branching out with this one! Soaring to new heights on my flight to victory!

Medieval Market

Your prospects look rather bleak, why don’t you come to this lively market and enjoy a brighter view? I’ll meet you there – I just gotta pick up my trophy.

With a View

Time to finish fencing off and bridge our differences. I’ve been looking for a nice place to spend some time relaxing, found this one with a nice view.

Iron Tools

Better watch out where you’re headed – you don’t have the tools to repair any mishaps. Your direction ain’t bad but you lack the iron, builder!

Blue Shelled

Karting my way to victory, better not stand in the way or you’re about to get blue shelled! Driving you crazy yet? Woohooo!

Seed Part Monster

Your monster bawls for cookies !!


These waters are dangerous alright, but there is always a bigger fish in the pond! Thanks for the deliciousss snack.

Don’t Swim With the Big Fishes

You are swimming in dangerous waters, Cecilie! Better you coral your thoughts, before I fish my way to victory.


Once you’ve run out of tolkiens to play your game, come relax in my shire. Don’t make it a hobbit though, we’ve got an Iron Builder to finish!

Classic Space Arcade

Your maid can totally continue cleaning under my lounger so I can keep blasting you into space with my builds.

Robo Maid 2031

While you’re busy keeping a big house like that clean, I’m mopping the floor with the competition.

Sunset View

Your childhood dreams are too small for this competition. Make sure you don’t get roasted while you take a time-out in my garden!

Iron Builder in the Making

Looks like the desert is making you hallucinate. The heat is irrelephant when I’m bringing out the kid in me.

Bluetiful Temple

While your tiny lander got lost in some deserted place, i cleared some space for my bluetiful Temple. I’d say you pack your gear and crash here but I’m afraid you can’t handle the heat!

Classic Space Lunar Lander

Iron Builder has landed, I’m ready to explore this new seed piece, but we seem to be missing a part of the crew, don’t be a procrastonaut Elias, and get out here!

And the seed part is…

This round’s seed part is the Large Figure Part Shield Holder with Axle in blue.

Season 6 – Round 6 of Iron Builder
– starting April 4th!

This round runs until…

Round 5 is officially over!

It is now in the hands of the judges to decide if it did indeed come down to the wire!

Harvestman – Plague Mech: Amalgam

It would seem the flies around your trashy build have caught the attention of a sinister spider. I’d leg it before you to fall prey to this mechanical monstrosity, the harvestman is here to reap.

I’m Sortin’ My Trash Here

Don’t mean to be a grouch, but your viking’s armor is garbage. Says who? Sesame. Better clean up your act or put a lid on it. Though you certainly deserve an Oscar for those trashy puns!

Chief Ironscale

We’re almost at the finish line! Hope you’re not burnt out. You better whip yourself into shape if you want to best me. I’m the viking of this castle.

Fe-26 Cargo Rover

Don’t worry I can handle sand, rocks, or any sort of rough terrain. Whether on rim worlds or planetary hubs, this truck is in it for the long haul. Soon it’ll all be rover for you though.

Technically A Bonsai

Water you talking about? The way I see it you’re waterfalling behind. My lead only continues to grow until I leaf you behind in the dust. Even though I’m branching out from characters and creatures, my build still rocks.

A Familiar Platform

Stars are nice and all but everyone knows the score is what really matters. And unfortunately you just don’t seem to be at my level, as I’m scrolling by with ease. Don’t mind my jumping into the lead, there are plenty more ideas in the pipeline!

The Starlight Connection

Well this has been a blast. But I just don’t think you’re in the right headspace to compete with me. Everyone knows I’m the real star of this competition.

The Lily Realm

Water you thinking? You’re only in the lead in your fantasy. I’m flowering under the pressure, and now it’s going to be tough for you to bridge the gap in points between us. House it feel to always be up against the rocks?


I may have been dragon the chain for a bit, but I’ll have you retractor your previous statements. You can’t clip my wings, because I’m ready to soar back into the lead!

Hey There Farmer!

Oh Deere, Joss seems to have baled out. This must have been the straw to break the chameleon’s back. I know seed part challenges can be tough, but I’m farming this part for all it’s worth. You could even say I’m having a hayday with it!

Terror’s Spawn

What a cute creature! Eye hope he’s wary of the danger spawning in the dark, else this may be his last encounter. Sometimes blending in is your only chance of surviving to hatch another plan.

Cable Clip Chameleon

You have yet to see my true colours… Here’s a flashy critter to scale the leaderboard. But make no mistake, this chameleon won’t blend into the background, he’s here to stand out.

Mechanical Advantage

Technic you say? Well I’ve geared up and now am ready to spring into the lead! You’re crazy if you think I’ll lever quit.

Waia Konekta

A warrior approaches, for what is a headdress without one worthy to bear it? Waia Konekta thinks you out of your element… Technic is his domain…

An Element of Discovery

Look no feather, we’ve discovered the winner of this round already. Though we may as well headdress the elephant in the room – it’s time for some element exploration!

And the seed part is…

This round’s seed part is the Technic Cable Connector in green. 

Now our two contestants have 16 days to come up with amazing and inspiring creations featuring this seed part. Wish them luck! This round will come down to the wire!

Who are you rooting for? Who will take it home? Whose builds reign supreme?

Welcome to Season 6 – Round 5 of Iron Builder!

Who will take home the crown?

Tell Your Story

“What a month. I hope you’ve all enjoyed Cecilie and myself duking it out.

Cecilie, you are freakin amazing and built so many things that made my jaw hit the floor. You didn’t let up for a minute, and beat me to a couple really cool ideas.

As for me, I have one last offering, directed at the audience. We’ve told our stories this month with build after build…now it’s time for you to tell yours.”


“You look like you’re in quite the pinch over there, but I’ve got just the guy to come get you out of that.”


“The other side of the coin. You’ve been pretty quiet, so I assume you’ve either been eaten by a xenomorph, or are about to do something amazing.”

“You’ll have to give me a little bit…I just woke up in Vietnam.”

End of the Road…

“Careful where you step, this is the end of the road for you.”

One Giant Leap

“Since I’m out here, I decided to take a walk, and found a small step.”

Into the Cosmos

“Plenty of time (and a bit of space) til the finish line.”

Pine Cone

“Pining for the end yet?”

Red Hots, Get Your Red Hots!

“Mushrooms go great on burgers…maybe they’d taste good on a hot dog too?”


“My Goomba is coming to stomp all over your flower bed.”

The Flower Garden

“Watch out, don’t let Gramps break a hip while he’s swinging that broomhandle around. Why not find him a new hobby; tending a flower bed, maybe?”

Sensei Action Figure

“Sensei doesn’t shave. But he’s telling you to get up and try again!”

A Little Off the Top

“That beard’s getting mighty unruly; let me untangle my clippers and clean him up a bit.”

Erik the Viking

“Better watch out, your market is in for some pillaging!”

Off to Market

“Looks kinda soggy…come find some firmer footing at the market.”

Happy Valentine’s Day

“Roses are so cliché, have some water lilies instead!”


“Valentine’s Day rose. Massacre not included.”

They Just Won’t Shut Up!

“I hope those fans can cool me down. This thing just keeps yakking, and it’s getting me heated.”

“You call that a big trap? No, if you want to catch Norwegian super rodents, you need something like this.”

To Catch a Rat…

“Holy crap, is that some sort of Norwegian super-rodent?! You’ll need a big trap to catch one of those if they ever infest your house. Something like this.”
