It was rainy as hell in Sydney this weekend, but that didn’t stop hundreds from lining up outside the Powerhouse Museum for Sydney’s answer to Melbourne’s Brickvention and Canberra’s BrickExpo. Organised by SydBricks (an offshoot of the Sydney Lego users group), The Sydney Brickshow was the perfect escape from the elements. Giz was there of course, and we put together this image gallery for those who couldn’t make it…
Minifig Scale Imperial AT-AT
This Empire Strikes Back effort from Mark Curnow took over two years, multiple versions and more than 5000 pieces to build.
Sidney (Sic) Brick Casino
Martin Low spent over 100 hours piecing together 4000 bricks and 800 fairly lights to create this amazing cityscape, complete with highrise (with occupants!) and monorail.
Canberra Lego Users Group In The House
Australia’s only certified Lego professional, Mr Ryan McNaught, spent 250 hours building this model of the Saturn V rocket that took astronauts to the moon in 1968. Oh, and you’re looking at over 250,000 lego bricks!
