The long awaited LEGO Master Builder Academy level 3 and level 4 are now available at the Online LEGO Shop! LEGO MBA level 3 was actually released before, but it was taken off the market for several months due to redesign of the packaging. Previously you had to sign up for a mail-order subscription, where each LEGO MBA kit was sent separately in polybags every few months. Now each level (containing 3 kits each) is bundled together in one box, so you can buy the levels separately or all at one time. 🙂
This may sound confusing, so lets recap; the LEGO Master Builder Academy program is designed to give LEGO fans a chance to learn LEGO building techniques directly from LEGO designers in a systematic way. There are four levels of the LEGO MBA program. Each level includes 3 kits and each kit focuses on 2 new techniques. The levels build on each other so as you progress the models will also incorporate previously learned skills. The LEGO Master Builder Academy kits all include a beautifully designed handbook with building instructions for various models, focusing on the techniques featured, as well as inspirations for building your own creations. The LEGO MBA program also comes with a whole online environment where you get further tasks and lessons to advance your skills.
➡ LEGO MASTER BUILDER ACADEMY – LEVEL ONE: The first level of the LEGO MBA program is actually split up into two boxes, with the first box including only kit 1; LEGO MBA Space Designer. My guess is that LEGO kept this kit a separate item so people who want to try out the LEGO MBA program can get a feel for it without paying for the entire first level at once. The second box includes kits 2-3; LEGO MBA Robot Designer and LEGO MBA Micro Designer. BUY HERE
➡ LEGO MASTER BUILDER ACADEMY – LEVEL TWO: The second level of the LEGO MBA program is called Action Designer and includes kits 4-6: LEGO MBA Flight Designer, LEGO MBA Creature Designer, and LEGO MBA Auto Designer, all in one box. BUY HERE
➡ LEGO MASTER BUILDER ACADEMY – LEVEL THREE: The third level of the LEGO MBA program is called Adventure Designer and includes kits 7-9: LEGO MBA The Lost Village, LEGO MBA The Forbidden Bridge, and LEGO MBA The Dark Lair, all in one box. BUY HERE
➡ LEGO MASTER BUILDER ACADEMY – LEVEL FOUR: The fourth and final level of the LEGO MBA program is called Invention Designer and includes kits 10-12: LEGO MBA Time Machine, LEGO MBA World Architecture, and LEGO MBA Inventor’s Lab, all in one box. BUY HERE
I already have the first two levels of the LEGO Master Builder Academy and I’m getting the rest shortly. I have been very pleased with the program, in fact I would say that if you can only get into one LEGO theme, get the LEGO MBA program. It is suitable for both children (recommended minimum age is 9) and adults to learn basic and advanced LEGO building skills. The program is very well designed to get you learning, thinking and building in a structured way, yet at your own pace. Also, the kits include a tremendous – yet complimentary – variety of LEGO elements, so it is also a great way to start out a LEGO collection and pretty much be able to build anything. 😀
As I have mentioned the LEGO MBA level 3 is available again, and also the brand new LEGO MBA level 4. You can find them, along with the first two levels at the Online LEGO Shop.
