Ryan ‘The Brickman’ McNaught is bringing his interactive LEGO® exhibition, Brickman Awesome to Mac2, Hobart on Saturday, 13 April until Sunday, 28 April 2019.
Built from more than 450,000 bricks and standing a towering 7.5 metres tall, a replica NASA SLS rocket is the centrepiece attraction of Brickman Awesome and is just one of 37 awe-inspiring creations set to amaze children and adults these Easter school holidays. A cutaway replica showing the inner workings of Australia’s new icebreaker, the RSV Nuyina – which will become a familiar sight in Hobart when it replaces the Aurora Australis in 2020 – will also be on display. The diverse array of models on show at Brickman Awesome offers something for everyone, including the only life-sized LEGO® Harley Davidson ever made, and the largest ever LEGO® Caterpillar 797 dump truck.
Visitors to Brickman Awesome 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, weighing over 60kgs and built using more than 40,000 LEGO® bricks
Brickman Awesome marks McNaught’s third exhibition made entirely of LEGO® bricks and has been a smash-hit across other Australian cities and now it’s Tasmania’s turn! The 37 models are made from more than two million LEGO® bricks, taking over 5,000 hours of build.
