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 […]

Brickvention 2020 Spotlight: LEGO® Brick Steampunk Ship

For his Brickvention model Darren went back to one of his favourite themes- Steampunk! For those who don’t know, Steampunk is a kind of fantasy future based on steam-powered technology.  A long time fan of the aesthetic and and airships meant Darren quickly had a good idea of what his model would look like and […]

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 […]

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 Pirate Ship

Yearrr! On this week’s Throwback we’re taking to the high seas with our huge LEGO® brick Pirate Ship! Ryan created this model back in 2014 for the Melbourne AFOL event Brickvention and has cut it in half so you can see all the crazy pirate action below decks! We tried to fill it with as many […]

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 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 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 Brisbane Hospital

Here’s a Throwback Thursday especially for our Queensland fans! Back in 2011 Ryan was commissioned to build models of the planned new Children’s Hospital in Brisbane, later renamed to Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital​. At the time Brisbane had 2 aging Children’s Hospitals and both were to be closed and replaced by the new hospital, so […]

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​® Elvis Firefighting Helicopter

This week’s Throwback Thursday is probably our most infamous model- The giant firefighting Erickson Skycrane named “Elvis”! Elvis is actually a Canadian skycrane that the Australian firefighting service borrows each summer to help contain and fight bushfires. It was Ryan’s twin boys who told him he had to build Elvis when they saw it flying […]

Throwback Thursday: LEGO® brick A380

This week’s Throwback Thursday takes us right back to 2009 and one of Ryan’s most important models- the A380 model which set Ryan on the path to become Australia’s first LEGO Certified Professional! Long before he became an LCP, Ryan was a long-time fan of both planes and the cutaway books, so when it came to […]

Saturn V Rocket makes the Guinness Book of Records!

Australia’s tallest LEGO model, Ryan’s massive 6 metre tall Saturn V Rocket and Launch tower, has just been featured in the Guinness Book of World Records- Blockbuster edition for 2017! We thought this was a great reason to look back at the Rocket model itself, which was built way back in 2012, and first displayed […]

Mount Panorama in LEGO Bricks

Over 47,000 bricks went into recreating the 2 sections of the iconic  Mount Panorama Bathurst racing circuit, which is now on display in Bathurst Regional Gallery. We had heaps of fun recreating lots of moments from throughout the history of the mountain, from its history with the local Wiradjuri Aboriginal people, to famous race crashes […]
