Brick Man Experience NZ tour announced
There is only one LEGO® certified professional in the Southern Hemisphere, and his name is Ryan McNaught. Following four sell-out tours in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and Perth, Ryan is finally bringing his remarkable collection of 60 LEGO® works to Auckland and Hamilton.
New Zealand’s largest exhibition of LEGO® works features the complete collection by Ryan McNaught, including sixty original works made up from over 5 million LEGO® bricks! Each model is presented with its own unique behind the scenes story, as well as interactive building zones.
“New Zealand has never welcomed a LEGO® exhibition anywhere near this scale before – it really is an unmissable event for all the family to enjoy!” said Ryan McNaught.
The works include Ryan’s biggest ever Star Wars LEGO® build, a model Airbus A380, a quarter scale LEGO® Ferrari and the world’s largest LEGO® flower.
In addition to Ryan’s pieces, works from other LEGO® Certified Professionals around the world will be displayed, based around the ‘Transport’ theme from their native country – a must see for all LEGO® fans.
“I am really excited that the Brick Man Experience is heading to Auckland these school holidays. All of my works will be displayed together in one place for people to enjoy – but you’ll need to be quick as they’re on display for a limited time only!
Ryan adds, “At the end of last year we took the exhibition to Brisbane and we were blown away by the response – it was our third tour, having already visited Melbourne and Sydney. The response in all three cities was incredible - kids, parents, grandparents, everyone, just loved it”
“I’ve also got a few exciting things for the kids (and big kids!) to participate in, so everyone can enjoy creating brick masterpieces as well as enjoying the exhibition. It’s going to be a lot of fun!”
LEGO® bricks play a cherished role in childhoods across the globe – the beloved bricks have been around for over 50 years! Back in 2010, Ryan took his love for LEGO® to a whole new level by becoming the only LEGO® Certified Professional in the Southern Hemisphere – he now goes by the name of ‘The Brick Man’.
Proud to be one of only 14 LEGO® Certified Professionals in the world, and the only one in the Southern Hemisphere, Ryan ‘The Brick Man’ McNaught used to be a slave to the corporate world before trading in the boardroom for a LEGO® workshop!
Married with twin sons and based in Melbourne, Ryan’s greatest concern is that there are a whole lot of kids out there who want to take his job!
