Our Wonders of the World exhibition is returning next school holidays! And after the recent Oscars’s stuff ups we couldn’t resist having a bit of fun with the reveal of our next location. Tickets go on sale this Friday 3rd March. Watch the reveal here:
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!
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!
For the first time ever you are welcome to come along and experience my complete collection of LEGO models, along with those of my colleagues the other LEGO Certified professionals who have each created a unique piece for the show.
Come and join in the fun as there is plenty of hands on activities where ill be getting you to help build some giant LEGO models and masterpieces.
Ive got a stack of new stuff never seen in public before so for your only chance to see them come along!
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!
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.
Over the last 12 months I’ve been busy updating the LEGO section in some MYER stores.
Here is some goodies from MYER in Adelaide.
(I really did have fun making the Adelaide over scoreboard! – Take that poms!)
I’ve had a few LEGO stop motion jobs of late, here’s one I did some work on.

Here’s some LEGO recreations I made of some classic Sydney Opera House images.
Here’s a couple of small models which have been made for a department store over in Western Australia.
I’ve been wanting to recreate Australia II winning the Americas cup for a long time now, so this was pretty neat.
Also a real part of WA; a mining truck hauling away some riches. (if you see it in person look out for the secret cave!)
I’ve just finished making some super cool trophies which will be awarded to each state Chima Speedorz Champion.
These were a lot of fun to make, I look forward to seeing each of the winners!
With the release of the new LEGO Sydney Opera House, I have decided to offer its companion, the Sydney harbour Bridge as its own LEGO set.
This is a very rare opportunity for you to own one of my designs and also have an amazing part of Australia made out of LEGO.
All you need to do is click “support” and once it his 10,000 likes it is on its way!
Here’s the details:
LEGO has recently released its new CREATOR expert model, the world famous Sydney Opera House
However there is only one problem, it is missing its equally as famous and just as significant twin, the Sydney Harbour Bridge.
These two inseparable icons form the backdrop to one of the most famous harbours in the world.
So here is your chance to have the companion model.
Designed by Australia’s own LEGO Certified Professional; Ryan McNaught.
The Bridge brings new and interesting modelling techniques as well as an amazing looking model.
• Partner model of the new #10234 Sydney Opera house
• Each tower whilst looks the same uses a different construction technique, thus avoiding the dreaded x4 often seen in LEGO instructions.
• Includes Sydney ferries and a myriad of mini cars and trucks.
• Teaches important concepts such as making curved models out of rectangular bricks.
• Advanced Half stud offset technique used in all 4 towers.
• Measures over 90cm long, 30cm wide and 30cm high.

I recently had the chance to take a trip over to New Zealand.
To say it is a beautiful country does not do it justice.
Whilst I was over there i managed to slot in a slot on breakfast TV, promoting the National LEGO building competition.
Here’s a link to the Interview, and here’s a close up of some flowers I gave to the shows hosts.
I was just playing around tonight and I made up a few picture frames. I have plenty of ideas for different ones, but these seemed like a little bit of fun. I did ask my darling wife if I thought they looked cute, the response was immediate: “LEGO is not cute!”. I think its clearly […]
