Ryan ‘The Brickman’ McNaught, the only LEGO® Certified Professional in the Southern Hemisphere and one of only 14 in the world is smashing another ‘awesome’ LEGO® record with his latest Brickman exhibition coming to Sydney this December and he’s on the hunt for Australian brickies to help him along the way!
Brickman Awesome starts its national tour in Sydney this Boxing Day at the ICC Sydney, Convention and Exhibition Centre and has already broken LEGO® records before it has even opened! It will be Ryan's third exhibition made entirely from LEGO® bricks and will be on until the Sunday 4th of February 2018 before heading to Melbourne, Perth and Brisbane.
The exhibition will be made up of 38 never-seen-before LEGO® models, totalling more than 1.5 million bricks and clocking up more than 4,500 hours of build-time! Brickman Awesome will also showcase the only life-sized LEGO® Harley Davidson ever made and the largest ever LEGO® Caterpillar 797 dump truck! Adding to the awesome-ness is a full-sized LEGO® Australian saltwater crocodile, weighing over 60kgs and built using more than 40,000 LEGO® bricks!
Brickman Awesome will showcase the tallest LEGO® model in the Southern Hemisphere – a NASA SLS rocket standing at a whopping 7.5m tall and built from more than 450,000 bricks! Taking more than 500 hours to create, Ryan has pushed LEGO® building boundaries by installing an in-built lighting system giving the effect that the rocket is blasting off into space!
If that’s not awesome enough, visitors will be forgiven for thinking they have stepped inside a zoo as they find themselves surrounded by a LEGO® Kangaroo, Koala and even a giant Orca Whale!
Ryan is not stopping at the current LEGO® records, he'd like to get another one! He wants to build Australia’s longest LEGO® model – a giant snake - but he will need all the budding Australian brickies out there to help him and his team! The Brickman team has already built the head and the tail but they need everyone who visits the exhibition to help them build the belly too!
LEGO® fanatics will have lots of opportunities to show off their building skills at Brickman Awesome – visitors can help the Brickman team expand their LEGO® colony of Emperor Penguins, build their very own time machines and even put them on display next to Ryan’s LEGO® models of Doctor Who’s TARDIS and the DeLorean from Back to the Future! Needless to say this exhibition is going to be awesome - Brickman Awesome to be exact and we can't wait!!
