Just in time for Christmas here I am showing you how to make a round ball from square and rectangular LEGO® bricks as well as a neat trick for turning your new LEGO sphere into a decoration for your Christmas tree!
Over 47,000 bricks went into recreating the 2 sections of the iconic Mount Panorama Bathurst racing circuit, which is now on display in Bathurst Regional Gallery. We had heaps of fun recreating lots of moments from throughout the history of the mountain, from its history with the local Wiradjuri Aboriginal people, to famous race crashes […]
It’s been an epic first week up in Brisbane for our new Wonders of the World exhibition! It was both exhilarating and slightly frightening to show all the models we’ve been working on for over a year to the public for the first time. But seeing the looks on the faces of the kids ( […]

A month ago we were privileged to have Alex and his family visit the workshop courtesy of the amazing Make-a-Wish Foundation. We had an amazing day showing Alex around our LEGO parts library, getting an exclusive sneak peek at all the new models we’re building and meeting our team of builders! Ryan showed Alex and his […]
AMP commissioned me to make a model of their original building, an iconic curved office block at Sydney’s Circular Quay, and their proposed new building- a stunning modern building that’s all angled glass and gardens with a mall underneath it! You can see the old building well in this shot. The old AMP Building was […]

Check out the timelapse video of the life-size LEGO® TARDIS we built last year that appeared on Bondi Beach in Sydney! 75,000 bricks, 400 kilos and 300 hours!
Down here at the Brickman workshop we are running like an express train because we’re gearing up toward a massive new touring show! While the full details are still under wraps we thought we’d tease you all by showing one of the biggest new models we’ve built for the show- the first train in the world to break 100mph, The Flying Scotsman!
I’m back in sunny Townsville for the weekend! This time I’m with the Towers of Tomorrow exhibition me and my team built a few years ago, which includes some of the toughest models I’ve ever built of the many of the world’s tallest buildings! The exhibit also includes hundreds of thousands of bricks visitors can use to build their own model. So if you’re in North Queensland or heading there over the next few months, drop by and check them out!

Here is the giant Clay Moorington from LEGO NEXO Knights which we made for the LEGO booth at toyfair.
The funny part is he was built by Clay Mellington – pictured

If you want to check him out he will be at Fountain gate shopping centre in Melbourne April 9 and 10 for the free LEGO Nexo knights event.
We received a huge number of signed bricks from the last Brick Man Experience show in Brisbane and as with the Melbourne & Sydney shows we’ve used the bricks to build an iconic Australian animal. Behold the Brisbane shark Signature Build!
We call him Mick.
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!
Well its over! Brickvention 2009 has finished. And i have to say what brickvention it was, we had a new record attendance on sunday just over 1000 people coming through the doors, a totally amazing number, and i have to say a couple of special moments for me, especially seeing the mums and dads looks […]
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!
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.
