Hold the phone guys—your Christmas present has just arrived, and as per usual, you’ll have to wait until the big man comes to enjoy it*. A life-sized Lego exhibition is coming to Australia and that means a saltwater crocodile, Harley Davidson and 36 other Lego models have come to town.
Dubbed, Brickman Awesome (get it?), Ryan ‘Brickman’ McNaught is the man behind this one and FYI he’s the only certified Lego professional in the Southern Hemisphere. Don’t feel bad if you didn’t know that was a thing—just know that it absolutely is. And this is his third record-breaking exhibition. Just to give you an idea of the sheer scale of this thing, he’s used 1.5 million Lego bricks in his 38 pieces, which took a chill 4,500 hours of construction time—some models are as tall as 6.5 metres. It’s pretty damn extreme.
Brickman Awesome will open on Boxing Day in Sydney at the brand spankin’ International Convention Centre in Darling Harbour.
*It’s officially December guys, so the sooner you get used to our Christmas excitement, the better TBH.
