Lego projects in 2014
My first ever solo exhibition of LEGO works in conjunction with Sydney Living Museums.
Go along and see what our whole team spent many months building and working on.
This one pushed us to our limits with intricate details, complex curves and architectural geometry.
The exhibition celebrates tall and extraordinary buildings from Australia and Asia. Some are engineering head-turners while others are technical marvels.
(To be honest we are still not sure how we managed to pull off some of these buildings!)
Towers of Tomorrow with LEGO Bricks is on now at Museum of Sydney.

Easily the tallest model I have ever made standing 10m tall. 450,000 bricks and weighing in at 3,500 kilograms.
Everything about this tree and its surrounding models is epic, featured int he Pitt Street mall in Sydney until Dec 27th.
The light and sound show is at 8pm, 8.15pm, 8.30pm and 8.45pm every night.
If you are really keen you can see the behind the scenes timelapse of how we build it
And for more great pictures of the tree don’t forget to check out my Flickr page.
Its footy finals!
Head on down to the MYER emporium store in Melbourne to check out our latest mega model, the 70,000 brick LEGO MCG on grand final day.
There is lots of hidden gems in this model which took over 3 weeks to build.
Head over to my flickr Gallery for a closer look.
For those old enough to appreciate the movie “Ferris Bueller’s day off” you can probably remember this car.
I certainly will never be able to afford a real one (they are over $10 million bucks!) i figured id build myself a real one.
At over 1.8m long and 50,000 bricks, I think you will agree that it is “soooooooo choice”
I’ve always wanted to fly a plane, but I never did manage to get my pilots license, however that didn’t stop me from building the Pilatus P-9 from the RAAF’s acrobatic Roulettes.
(Complete with working propeller!)
It has been 30 years since LEGO introduced Benny the Blue Spaceman (as seen in the LEGO movie).
so we figured he might like to celebrate by getting him a new book, you be the judge!
Whilst this colourful hot air balloon looks pretty it certainly was no easy build, its crazy shape along with colour changes made it one of the more difficult things we have ever built.
(Combine that with the fact that it is designed to be hung from above!)
To celebrate the release of the Hobbit Video game on Playstation 4, I was asked to make the ultimate LEGO Hobbit playstation console.
Its normally hard work to get permission to do licensed product, so this was quite a treat.
The front of the LEGO model opened up to reveal the PS4.
Last year saw us complete a 3m tall Yoda for May the 4th, this year we went a little bit further, a world record 4.6m tall Darth Vader!
One of my colleagues from the USA Dan Steininger came down under and together we managed to pull off the worlds largest LEGO darth vader.
Thanks to everyone who came out to help out we had a blast.
Sometimes, just sometimes we get to have some fun, this poor guy is simply called “Oh Noes!”
When we were contacted by Shell last year, we had no idea just how big a model can get, until we heard about a thing called the ‘Prelude”
At just over 483m long it is simply massive, its a floating Liquid natural gas refinery, extractor and storage facility all in one!
It will be stationed off the north west coast of Australia when it is finished and is a huge feat of engineering.
Here’s a couple of builds we have recently finished for the upcoming release of the LEGO movie.
The LEGO Movie logo is one of the biggest builds we have ever done, weighing in at a massive 360kgs!
It is 5x the size of the original logo used in the movie. As you can see the model had some very special challenges around building it!
The minifig Emmett and Lucy were also a lot of fun to build.
