LEGO® Master Builder Academy sets are divided into different levels of building skills and techniques. Each level is designated by its own color, exclusive LEGO MBA Minifigure, and set of LEGO MBA kits.
Level 1 (Green)
• Space Designer (Kit 1)
• Robot & Micro Designer (Kits 2 & 3)
Level 2 (Yellow)
• Action Designer (Kits 4-6)
Level 3 (Orange)
• Adventure Designer (Kits 7-9)
Level 4 (Blue)
• Invention Designer (Kits 10-12)
While we encourage LEGO MBA members to start at the beginning of Level 1 with the Space Designer set and progress to each higher level as they complete the last one, it is not required to go through the LEGO MBA levels in a specific order.
Although it is not necessary to go through the levels in order, later Design Handbooks do refer back to techniques and skills that were learned in previous kits, and build upon the experiences from earlier levels.
By experiencing the LEGO MBA levels in order, builders will gain the full LEGO Master Builder Academy experience of first learning the fundamentals of good LEGO model design and building, and then progressing to increasingly more advanced LEGO Master Builder techniques and skills!
There is no test for completing a LEGO MBA level. When you feel that you have fully understood and mastered the skills and techniques of your current level, then you are ready to move on to the next level. You can also try a new level if you want to learn its new techniques and building themes!
If you want to test your new building skills and prove that you have mastered your current level, then try earning your Designer Diploma for all three kits in your level! You can earn a kit’s Designer Diploma by completing all of the activities on its Design Desk on LEGOmba.com and earning all five badges for that kit.
Every level of LEGO Master Builder Academy is divided into three kits. Each kit spotlights a particular LEGO building theme, like Spaceships, Robots, Creatures, Autos, or Time Travel. Each kit has its own LEGO Master Builder hosts, its own set of new techniques and tips, and its own set of LEGO models, building steps, and themed minifigure accessories.
In addition, each LEGO MBA kit has its own unique Design Desk full of exclusive tips, articles, activities and videos on LEGOmba.com. See the REGISTRATION & MEMBERSHIP HELP section of this guide to find out how to register additional LEGO Master Builder Academy kits that you have purchased or received.
LEGO MBA kits are numbered to show their recommended order, but it is not required for LEGO MBA members to go through them in order.
Complete tasks on your to-do list and receive 5 new badges per kit! Every new kit will bring 5 different tasks online for you to complete to earn a badge.
