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.
My own personal Mount Everest has now been climbed!
Unquestionably one of the hardest shapes to make out of LEGO bricks, my 75,000 brick version shows the famous Australian landmark off inside and out.
(I love doing my trademark cutaway treatment on the big models!)

From Boxing day until January 27th I’ll be at the Melbourne Museum building some huge James Bond themed LEGO mosaics, come down and help build them with me.
The Designing James bond (50 years of 007) is also at the museum where you can see some amazing sets and props from the movies.
Here’s the first, gotta love that car!
