Here’s our latest world record build, the worlds largest LEGO flower.
100,000 bricks and over 400 hours to create, all it needed was a bit of water to grow 🙂
Its grand unveiling is at the Ballarat Begonia Festival for the long weekend of March 7-9th and after that the model will be on display as part of my upcoming tour www.brickmanexperience.com.au
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!
Here is the latest model to leave our workshop, Made for the Disney premiere of the movie Cinderella.
(I’m thinking I need to wear the glass slipper as she has me covered for height!)
She was about 2 weeks in the making, and approx 25,000 bricks.
Thanks to everyone who came in and helped at Brickvention 2014, we managed to build 2 of the most amazing LEGO mosaics.
Each mosaic is 170,540 LEGO pieces!
They are 4.2m wide and 2.4m tall.
On Saturday we completed the LEGO movie mosaic and Sunday we did the Royal Exhibition buildings, I’m sure you will agree they came up really well.
My first ever solo exhibition of LEGO works in conjunction with Sydney Living Museums.
Go along and see what our whole team spent many months building and working on.
This one pushed us to our limits with intricate details, complex curves and architectural geometry.
The exhibition celebrates tall and extraordinary buildings from Australia and Asia. Some are engineering head-turners while others are technical marvels.
(To be honest we are still not sure how we managed to pull off some of these buildings!)
Towers of Tomorrow with LEGO Bricks is on now at Museum of Sydney.
Details and tickets: http://slm.is/towers
Easily the tallest model I have ever made standing 10m tall. 450,000 bricks and weighing in at 3,500 kilograms.
Everything about this tree and its surrounding models is epic, featured int he Pitt Street mall in Sydney until Dec 27th.
The light and sound show is at 8pm, 8.15pm, 8.30pm and 8.45pm every night.
If you are really keen you can see the behind the scenes timelapse of how we build it
And for more great pictures of the tree don’t forget to check out my Flickr page.
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.
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.
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!
Here’s my LEGO Melbourne star observation wheel. At just over 3m in diameter it is unquestionably the most difficult thing I have ever built.
It is fully motorised using LEGO power functions using just over 30,000 bricks.
The hardest part was the maths and process in doing a 7 pointed star held by a flying buttress while being powered.
(I have no idea if there are bigger LEGO wheels around, if there is I’m yet to see one)
The model is mounted on permanent display in the gift shop after you ride the observation wheel.
The kids and I are in this shot just for scale!
The Melbourne star opens tomorrow (the 23rd of December, check it out!)
Up at the Perc Tucker Gallery in Townsville my latest mystery mosaic has just been finished.
I’ve always wanted to do this picture in LEGO, and with 23 different colours and just under 50,000 bricks, it was unquestionably one of the most complex ones I have ever done! (Here is the original next to it for reference!)
Pop by the gallery to check it out and enjoy the lots of other activities there.
A fantastic new exhibition has just opened at the Perc Tucker Gallery in Townsville.
Featuring quite a few of my works as well as 53 historical items which have been sent directly from the LEGO Idea House in Billund, Denmark.
I’ll be onsite building some cool stuff from the 13th of December up until the 19th of December so come along and join in the fun.
I’ll be back again in Townsville in February so make sure you keep your eyes peeled for dates and times.
A bit of an update on a couple of events;
Saturday the 31st of August form 12-2pm at the Sydney Opera House concert hall southern foyer for the launch of the LEGO Sydney Opera House, be there or be compound curved 😉
Jamie Berard, the designer of the set will be in attendance and promises to be good times all round.

Ill be giving a presentation on behind the scenes in my job in what is an amazingly cool secret art gallery.
