Throwback Thursday LEGO® brick Pirate Ship

Yearrr! On this week’s Throwback we’re taking to the high seas with our huge LEGO® brick Pirate Ship! Ryan created this model back in 2014 for the Melbourne AFOL event Brickvention and has cut it in half so you can see all the crazy pirate action below decks! We tried to fill it with as many […]

Throwback Thursday LEGO® DUPLO train

LEGO DUPLO Train build team

This week we’re talking DUPLO! Earlier this year we built a super-sized DUPLO train from this year’s new sets so big you can sit in it. Or even ride in! We built the train based on the new 2017 DUPLO numbers train set and it was used to showcase the new DUPLO range at a […]

Throwback Thursday LEGO® Movie logo

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

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 […]

Pieces for Peace Melbourne Bollart

In January 2017 Melbourne was victim to an unthinkable tragedy involving a car mounting the footpaths of Bourke Street and many innocent lives lost. That event coupled with recent attacks in London have lead to the temporary installation of depressing anti-terror concrete bollards on footpaths across the city. In true Melbourne spirit, artists from all […]

Throwback Thursday: LEGO® brick Tokyo Skytree

For this Throwback Thursday we’re going back to Japan and probably the hardest model Ryan had to build for Sydney Living Museums’ Towers of Tomorrow exhibition- a 2m+ version of the Tokyo Skytree tower! The skytree’s distinctive white latticework was hard enough to build, but it was made even tougher thanks to the fact it […]

Throwback Thursday: LEGO® brick Pompeii

mrkFor this week we’re flying back in time to the 3rd LEGO® build we have done for Sydney University’s Nicholson Museum- LEGO® Pompeii! Being a museum piece we couldn’t show the city being destroyed, because we wouldn’t be able to show the history of the city, so we chose to depict the city the moment […]

Throwback Thursday: LEGO​® Elvis Firefighting Helicopter

This week’s Throwback Thursday is probably our most infamous model- The giant firefighting Erickson Skycrane named “Elvis”! Elvis is actually a Canadian skycrane that the Australian firefighting service borrows each summer to help contain and fight bushfires. It was Ryan’s twin boys who told him he had to build Elvis when they saw it flying […]

Throwback Thursday: LEGO® brick A380

This week’s Throwback Thursday takes us right back to 2009 and one of Ryan’s most important models- the A380 model which set Ryan on the path to become Australia’s first LEGO Certified Professional! Long before he became an LCP, Ryan was a long-time fan of both planes and the cutaway books, so when it came to […]

Throwback Thursday: LEGO Sydney Opera House

Considering the construction of the actual Sydney Opera House was started in 1959 on 1st March, it seems appropriate that this week’s Throwback Thursday is all about Ryan’s versions of this Australian icon. Of course it’s even more appropriate that Ryan build the Opera House from LEGO bricks, because the original architect of the Opera […]

Throwback Thursday: LEGO Acropolis now in Athens!

Back in 2013  Ryan built a LEGO model of Athen’s famed Acropolis temple complex and the iconic columned Parthenon. The huge diorama was built as part of a series of models (the first being the Colosseum) built around ancient history for Sydney University’s Nicholson Museum. The Nicholson Museum then donated the model to the Acropolis […]

Mount Panorama in LEGO Bricks

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 […]

Wonders of the World Brisbane Open & Tour Announced!

Great Barrier Reef
