LEGO® has been around, well, since most of us were born. The iconic product has been handed down through generations and has probably been a part of all our lives in some way or another (whether it was as a youngster, or as an adult watching LEGO Masters). For those of you who are true fanatics, or can just admire some serious talent, then this is the event for you.
Brickwrecks: Sunken Ships in LEGO Bricks is bound to amaze all those who walk through the door. Boasting some really impressive exhibitions of the coolest LEGO creations we’ve ever seen, these amazing pieces will be on display at the WA Maritime Museum thanks to Ryan McNaught (judge on LEGO Masters AU), the WA Museum, and the Australian National Maritime Museum.
McNaught, also known as ‘The Brickman’ (and for good reason, too) is one of only 14 Certified LEGO Professionals in the world. This exhibition is seriously going to blow you away: in total, the pieces took over 1600 hours to create, plus over 153,000 LEGO bricks. With interactive pieces of different shapes and sizes, it’ll certainly keep you on your toes.
What’s even cooler is that all of the pieces are based on different shipwrecks—ones that actually happened in history. We’re sure Titanic has sprung to your mind, and there for sure is a large scale replica of it. All the models are 1-3 metres in size, and each exhibition tells the tale of different shipwrecks, from all over the world.
The exhibition opens on 27 June, and tickets are only $15 (less for students and kids).
