May the 4th be with you

Created on May 7, 2014 5:49 am

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.

May the 4th be with you

The LEGO Movie

Created on March 16, 2014 10:19 pm

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!

LEGO Melbourne Star

Created on December 22, 2013 3:28 am

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!)

Sidney Nolan’s Ned Kelly in LEGO

Created on December 18, 2013 9:33 pm

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.
