Brickvention 2020 Spotlight: LEGO® St Louis Gateway Arch

For our last Brickvention 2020 Spotlight we’re focusing on Stephan’s enormous LEGO® Technic version of the St Louis Gateway Arch. Perhaps not so well known outside the US, the Gateway Arch is the largest human-made arch in the world and is a massive 192m tall! Stephan lived and worked in St Louis for a number […]

Brickvention 2020 Spotlight: LEGO® brick Taz Devil

Our resident motorcycle rider builder KC surprised us by deciding to NOT build a motorcycle for Brickvention 2020! He decided instead to create a “life-size” version of his favourite Looney Tunes character, and fellow Tasmanian, Taz Devil. Not only that, he also decided to build the model as a self-portrait. KC created the model from […]

Behind the Build: LEGO® Britten Bike

Building a life-sized Britten LEGO® brick V-1000 motorcycle was a real challenge. Like the other two life-sized motorcycles we have built, we started with the wheels, working around a central vertical channel to allow for a metal support to keep the model vertical and safe for transport. The front wheel was built separately first, including […]

LEGO Masters Australia is back!

LEGO Masters Australia is back! This season is so much bigger, brighter and crazier than last year. We can’t wait to share it with Australia again! Here’s your first sneak peek at the brick-built AWESOMENESS that’s coming soon to channel 9:

Brickvention 2020 Spotlight: LEGO® Brick Sydney Olympic Cauldron

There was never any doubt that our Workshop Manager Clay would build something Olympic related for Brickvention this year! A bone-fide Olympics-nut, Clay has had a passion for the ceremony and spectacle of the Olympics ever since he saw the Sydney 2000 Olympics as a 6 year old. So when Ryan offered him the chance […]

Brickvention 2020 Spotlight: LEGO® Brick Lowrider

Luke is our resident car enthusiast so there was never any doubt that he’d build a LEGO® brick car for his Brickvention model! Building a simple straight model wasn’t going to be enough, so Luke set himself the challenge of creating a bouncing Lowrider! Using LEGO motors and Linear actuators was going to be way […]

A Brickman Brickvention 2020 wrap-up

Halfway through 2019 Ryan decided that the whole team could build whatever that wanted to for Melbourne’s premier LEGO® Fan exhibition, Brickvention 2020. Needless to say, the whole team was pretty excited! The idea was for every team member, from our Inventory Manager through to Ryan himself, to build LEGO® models to showcase their skills […]

Life-size LEGO Honda Civic Type-R

After the mammoth effort it took to build our last life-size car from LEGO® bricks we said that we’d never do it again. But when Honda Australia asked us to build their new flagship Civic, with full Type-R extras, we just couldn’t say no! We mean- just look at this thing: Being our second life-size […]

Life sized LEGO® brick Toyota Camry car

This year Ryan ticked off another of his life goals- to build a life-sized car out of LEGO® bricks! The chance to build one came out of a relationship with our between Toyota Australia and our new touring AWESOME LEGO model exhibition. As it happens Toyota we’re planning on unveiling their brand new 2018 Hybrid Camry […]

Throwback Thursday LEGO® Brick Shell’s Prelude FLNG Facility

In this week’s Throwback we’re going back to one of our biggest and most complex models- a huge nearly 5m long Shell Floating Liquefied Natural Gas (FLNG) Facility! We built the facility in separate sections for ease of transport and construction. This model was built back in the old workshop and was so big it […]

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® 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 […]

Throwback Thursday: LEGO® brick Shanghai Tower

In this week’s Throwback Thursday we’re going back to another skyscraper model and our LEGO​® brick model of the world’s 2nd tallest building- the 632m tall, 128 level Shanghai Tower​! Apart from the sheer height of the building (over 3m in the 1:200 scale that the entire Towers of Tomorrow exhibition was built in) the […]

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 Space Shuttle

The Space Shuttle is one of those iconic vehicles that captures the imagination and Ryan had always wanted to build one, but was at a bit of loss at first as to how best to do it. Ryan normally likes to build in “minifig-scale” so he can feature LEGO minifigures, but at that scale the […]

Throwback Thursday: LEGO® brick 101 Collins St Tower

When Ryan built his version of 101 Collins St Melbourne in 2011, it was Australia’s tallest LEGO brick model at over 2 metres tall! Ryan chose to build this particular skyscraper mainly because he used to look at it all the time in his old job! It was also very square and relatively LEGO friendly […]

Throwback Thursday: LEGO® Brick Ferrari

This week we’re throwing back to probably Ryan’s coolest LEGO® models ever- his 1/4 scale 1961 Ferrari 250GT California! The car features in Ryan’s favourite ever movie, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, and he’s wanted one ever since, but at over $10 million each, he figured building one out of LEGO® bricks will be the closest he’ll […]

Throwback Thursday: LEGO® brick Hot Air Balloon

This week’s model, Ryan’s beautiful rainbow coloured hot-air balloon, is a bit different in that Ryan built it purely for himself and just for the challenge of it! Building a pattern into a complex compounding curving shape like a balloon in LEGO is about as hard as it gets. Ryan started by getting the shape […]

Throwback Thursday: LEGO® Brick MCG

To celebrate the opening of Wonders of the World in Ryan’s hometown of Melbourne we figured we’d throwback to one of Ryan’s most memorable Melbourne models- the legendary MCG! Ryan’s huge version of the Melbourne Cricket Ground actually holds the Australian record for the most number of LEGO minifigures in one model – at well over […]

Throwback Thursday: LEGO brick Love Boat

  For this week’s Throwback Thursday we’re going back to one of Ryan’s biggest and most enduring models: The LEGO brick Love Boat! Built back in 2010, the Love Boat was actually built from the same bricks Ryan used in his first big model, the A-380 and came about when Ryan tried to think of a […]
