Melburnians will be the first people in the world to see a brand new life-size car made entirely from LEGO® bricks when it is unveiled for the first time ever at Ryan ‘The Brickman’ McNaught’s new exhibition, Brickman Awesome.
Brickman Awesome, presented by Toyota, 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 two million LEGO® bricks, taking over 5,000 hours to build.
New for the Melbourne exhibition will be a full-scale LEGO® model of the new, eighth generation Toyota Camry. The LEGO® 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.
Adding to the awesomeness is the tallest LEGO® model in the Southern Hemisphere – a NASA SLS rocket standing at a whopping 7.5 metres tall. As if that was not awesome enough, visitors will be forgiven for thinking they have stepped inside a zoo, as they find themselves surrounded by a LEGO® kangaroo, koala, giant orca whale and even a full-sized LEGO® Australian saltwater crocodile.
