Brickman Awesome at Melbourne Museum
BRICKMAN AWESOME Has Just landed in MELBOURNE
Brickman Awesome marks Ryan’s third exhibition made entirely from LEGO® bricks. It features 39 models – none of which have ever been seen in Melbourne before – and is made up of more than 2 million LEGO® bricks, taking over 5,000 hours to build.
To add to the excitement Ryan ‘The Brickman’ McNaught is unveiling a life-sized LEGO Toyota Camry measuring 616 Lego studs long and 230 Lego studs wide, and will weigh over a tonne! showcased alongside a number of other record-breaking models including the only life-sized Harley Davidson ever made and the largest ever LEGO Caterpillar 797 dump truck , all built in Melbourne.
Adding to the awesomeness is the tallest LEGO® model in the Southern Hemisphere – a NASA SLS rocket standing at a whopping 7.5m tall and built from more than 450,000
bricks! Taking more than 500 hours to build, Ryan has pushed LEGO® building boundaries by installing an in-built lighting system, giving the effect that the rocket is blasting off into space.
Ryan said: “Melburnians are in for an absolute treat at my new exhibition, Brickman Awesome. They will be the first in the world to see my brand new LEGO® creation – a life-sized Toyota Camry made entirely from LEGO® bricks! I’m a bit of a car fanatic myself – as all the brickies out there will know, I’ve already built a small-scale LEGO® Ferrari – so I’m delighted that we have partnered with Toyota to build a LEGO® version of their latest model.
As if that weren’t awesome enough, visitors will be finding themselves surrounded by a life-sized a Legokangaroo, koala, giant orca whale and even a full-sized Lego Australian saltwater crocodile, weighing over 60kgs and built using more than 40,000 Lego
Visitors of all ages can also add and contribute to the exhibition with their very own creations and display them alongside the Brickman displays.
Don't miss "Brickman Awesome" which will open just in time for these school holidays.
