Throwback Thursday LEGO® Movie logo

Created on September 7, 2017 8:00 am

For this week we’re throwing back to the ENORMOUS 200kg logo we made for The LEGO Movie​! Building the logo on the angle it is on was especially challenging as well working out how to super-size the LEGO​® brick parts the sign is made from. Given the specific 15 degree angle (on 2 axis no […]

Throwback Thursday: LEGO® Brick Jetstar 787

Created on August 24, 2017 8:12 am

Throwback Thursday is back! This week we’re going back to Ryan’s LEGO​® brick Jetstar 787 from 2014. As much as Ryan loves building planes, there was a very specific reason he chose to do his Jetstar 787 the way he did;  Jetstar actually lost his luggage full of LEGO on a flight to Rockhampton so […]

Throwback Thursday: LEGO® brick Space Shuttle

Created on July 13, 2017 10:14 am

The Space Shuttle is one of those iconic vehicles that captures the imagination and Ryan had always wanted to build one, but was at a bit of loss at first as to how best to do it. Ryan normally likes to build in “minifig-scale” so he can feature LEGO minifigures, but at that scale the […]

Throwback Thursday: LEGO® brick 101 Collins St Tower

Created on July 6, 2017 12:37 pm

When Ryan built his version of 101 Collins St Melbourne in 2011, it was Australia’s tallest LEGO brick model at over 2 metres tall! Ryan chose to build this particular skyscraper mainly because he used to look at it all the time in his old job! It was also very square and relatively LEGO friendly […]

Throwback Thursday: LEGO® Brick Ferrari

Created on June 29, 2017 8:59 am

This week we’re throwing back to probably Ryan’s coolest LEGO® models ever- his 1/4 scale 1961 Ferrari 250GT California! The car features in Ryan’s favourite ever movie, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, and he’s wanted one ever since, but at over $10 million each, he figured building one out of LEGO® bricks will be the closest he’ll […]

Throwback Thursday: LEGO® brick Banana Heist

Created on June 1, 2017 11:47 am

For this Throwback Thursday we’re focusing not so much on some Banana models we built as what happened to them- they were stolen! Back in 2015 we were invited to display as part of Townsville’s Strand Ephemera festival, where sculptures from local and international artists are displayed along the Townsville beachfront around the trees. We […]

Throwback Thursday: LEGO® brick Hot Air Balloon

Created on May 25, 2017 8:39 am

This week’s model, Ryan’s beautiful rainbow coloured hot-air balloon, is a bit different in that Ryan built it purely for himself and just for the challenge of it! Building a pattern into a complex compounding curving shape like a balloon in LEGO is about as hard as it gets. Ryan started by getting the shape […]

Throwback Thursday: LEGO® brick Ming Vase

Created on May 11, 2017 12:56 pm

For this week’s Throwback Thursday we’re looking at a very different type of model – a model Ryan had to build live! Ryan was exhibiting a few of his big models at the Brisbane Ekka show in 2012 and they wanted Ryan to build something while he was there, so he chose to build a […]

Throwback Thursday: LEGO® Brick Didgeridoos

Created on April 27, 2017 10:11 am

Back in 2012 LEGO Australia celebrated it’s 50th Anniversary in Australia with the “Festival of Play” which included a visit to Australia by LEGO’s CEO. It was decided to build something distinctly Australian as gifts to the LEGO group VIPs and Ryan chose to build LEGO brick versions of the iconic Aboriginal instrument -the Didgeridoo! […]

Throwback Thursday: LEGO brick Love Boat

Created on March 23, 2017 2:32 pm

  For this week’s Throwback Thursday we’re going back to one of Ryan’s biggest and most enduring models: The LEGO brick Love Boat! Built back in 2010, the Love Boat was actually built from the same bricks Ryan used in his first big model, the A-380 and came about when Ryan tried to think of a […]
