Measure up to 38 new models in the third exhibition by the only certified Lego professional in the Southern Hemisphere

What’s more awesome: a life-sized saltwater crocodile made from Lego, the largest ever Caterpillar 797 dump truck made from Lego, or the first official Harley Davidson made from Lego? Tricked you, they’re all awesome!

Our very own official Lego certified professional in the Southern Hemisphere – one of only 14 in the world – Ryan ‘Brickman’ McNaught is heading on tour with his third record-breaking exhibition, Brickman Awesome.

The exhibition opens on Boxing Day in Sydney and runs until early February, and it features a whopping 1.5 million bricks and 38 never-seen-before creations.

McNaught has pulled the exhibition together himself, with help from an expert team, to build a 60kg saltwater croc from 40,000 Lego bricks. Altogether, the team has put in 4,500 hours of construction time to craft all the models on show, which includes the tallest Lego model in the Southern Hemisphere – a NASA SLS rocket standing at 7.5m tall.

The Brickman is smashing records at every turn, from largest to tallest, but his accolades are never enough… Now he’s on the hunt for volunteer brickies (of all ages) to help him build the longest Lego model – a giant snake.

More awesome models in the exhibition include a kangaroo, a koala, and an orca whale. Visitors can also help create more animals, including Emperor Penguins, but also time machines… because, why not?
