Queensland LEGO® fans prepare to be awed, because Ryan 'The Brickman' McNaught's latest exhibition, Brickman Awesome is about to be unveiled in Brisbane.

Brickman Awesome is McNaught's fourth record-breaking LEGO® exhibition displaying some of The Brickman team's awe-inspiring works.

Featuring 39 incredible models – none of which have ever been seen in Brisbane before – made from more than two million LEGO® bricks, taking over 5,000 hours to build.

One of the most 'awesome' models in the exhibition is a full-scale LEGO® replica of the new, eighth generation Toyota Camry, which is 616 LEGO® studs long, 230 LEGO® studs wide, and weighs over a tonne. The Toyota Camry will be showcased alongside a number of record-breaking models, including the only life-sized LEGO® Harley Davidson ever made, and the largest ever LEGO® Caterpillar 797 dump truck.

This is also your chance to see 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. This particular model took more than 500 hours to build. Ryan pushed LEGO® building boundaries by installing an in-built lighting and sound system, giving the effect that the rocket is blasting off into space.

Animal lovers can walk through a LEGO zoo! Spy a LEGO® kangaroo, koala, giant orca whale and even a full-sized LEGO® Australian saltwater crocodile, weighing over 60kgs and built using more than 40,000 LEGO® bricks.

Ryan said: "I'm excited to finally be bringing Brickman Awesome to Brisbane. It's an amazing city and when we brought our previous exhibitions they were incredibly well received – Queenslanders really do have such huge enthusiasm for LEGO!"

LEGO® fanatics rejoice as you will also have the chance to practice your own brick-building skills by helping the Brickman team expand a colony of LEGO® Emperor penguins. You will also have the opportunity to build your very own time machine to put on display next to Ryan's models of Doctor Who's TARDIS and the DeLorean from Back to the Future.

Lastly, help the team smash yet another LEGO® record by contributing to Australia's longest LEGO® model – a giant snake. The Brickman team has already built the head and the tail but it needs you to help build the belly.

The Brickman team have worked around the clock to bring their magnificent models to Brisbane, ready to inspire LEGO® fans of all ages.

The Brickman Awesome exhibition theme is broad and diverse, meaning there's something to please all tastes, whether you're an animal lover, a car fanatic, or you have a love of time travel.

Brickman Awesome will be open daily from 1 December – 22 December 2018 at Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre.
