From October 29- December 3, 2022, the award-winning Awesome Exhibition – The Interactive Exhibition of LEGO® Models created by LEGO® Certified Professional Ryan “The Brickman” McNaught welcomed builders to a magnificent display of over 30 creations.
Ready for an adventure, attendees snagged their LEGO® Passport and went on an awesome journey discovering international landmarks, exotic animals and pop-culture displays in four thematic zones. But that’s not all, inspiring the imagination, creators were also invited to make their own display and help build the world’s longest LEGO® snake wall for future visitors to see!
An Awesome Journey
The Awesome Journey transported attendees to different landmarks around the globe with replicas of Windsor Castle, Sydney Opera House, the Space Needle and unique wild animals like the kangaroo, platypus, plus a family of penguins and so much more!
Let’s Go to the Movies!
Spectators got nostalgic with the iconic 1981 Delorean time machine reminiscent of Back to the Future, The Simpsons TV with the signature living room on screen, and various movie posters of classics including E.T., Star Trek and Star Wars to name a few.
The Danger Zone
Awesome machinery like a replica of the first submersible to reach the deepest place in the ocean aka the Trieste Bathyscaphe, the largest truck in the world, the Caterpillar 797 Mining Truck and equally thrilling animals like the crocodile and orca made up The Danger Zone.
Brick by Brick

Meet the Artist
Ryan McNaught aka “The Brickman” started making LEGO® Models professionally in 2008 and in 2010 became a LEGO® certified professional, one of only 22 in the world (and the only one in the Southern Hemisphere). Ryan’s models usually combine two very distinct styles– He almost always sculpts using basic LEGO® bricks and plates and overlays that with a “bringing it to life layer”, which involves LEGO® minifigures bringing the scenes to life. Ryan rarely uses sloped or curved bricks, holding a strong preference for the iconic LEGO® 2 x 4 brick.
