Down at the Brickman HQ, for years we have been saying we would love an office pet.
One we could love, look after, be a companion with and generally have fun playing with.
However nobody liked the idea of having to feed and do all the looking after business!
So we compromised! and ended up with "Brutus", be careful though his fangs are razor sharp!
Star Wars - The Force Awakens
- Created on Monday, 18 January 2016 00:17
Last month we, along with the LEGO US model shop and 3 other LEGO Certified Professionals from around the world had the privilege of building models for the Star Wars movie premiere. Our models were for the Shanghai red carpet, whilst my Mandarin is poor, by all accounts people were very happy with them!
The models were designed by the LEGO US model shop. with a special note to the designer of the BB8 Erik Varszegi, one of the best models of another persons design I have ever worked on.
And here we are having some fun:

I'd like to thank everyone who came along to Brickvention in Melbourne over the 16th and 17th of January and helped us build one of the worlds largest LEGO classic space sets at 64 times its normal size! Using over 550,000 bricks, we finished it with a few hours to spare at 3pm on Sunday.
Here's what the set from 1979 looks like:
here is what we got everyone to help us build:
And to give you an idea of just how big it is, here is all of us that put it together:
Life Size LEGO Tardis!
- Created on Tuesday, 10 November 2015 08:44
Occasionally we build something that tops our usual standard of awesome, and occasionally we get to play with really cool stuff, like Dr Who.
I remember as a kid watching the Doctor and his adventures around the galaxy, never for one minute did I think I’d ever get to build a life sized Tardis out of LEGO though!
Our team really did a cracking job on this huge model, and whilst I can’t tell you all the details about its build – The BBC are going to run some awesome competitions on it I can tell you that it was a lot of fun to build.
You can check it out at:
The Zing Pop Culture Store in Macquarie Park where it will be on display from the 10-18 November.
Then The Dr Who Festival at the Hordern pavilion in Sydney on the 21st and 22nd of November. (Peter Capaldi will even be there!)
Pictures courtesy of BBC Worldwide, except for the one from our workshop which was courtesy of one of our builders Mitch - The same guy who made the awesome signage on the front of the tardis.

Brickman Experience Melbourne.
- Created on Monday, 20 April 2015 02:16
A huge thanks to everyone that came along to the Brickman Experience in Melbourne.
I had a lot of feedback that everyone had a great time, there was lots of amazing building happening!
So everyone that went along was asked to sign a random LEGO brick which of course then led to me having a big pile of bricks, So I thought id make something that can travel along with the show from each location and venue it has been to, so here it is for Melbourne!
Head over to Flickr where you can tag yourself as part of the build.
The next question is, what am i going to build with the bricks from Sydney? Only one way to find out, click here to get tickets for Sydney which will have some brand new models on display along with everything from the Melbourne show.
