Brickman plans Lego Sky Tower
An Australian man who ‘‘never grew up’’ will make his mark in New Zealand when he builds a 1.9 metre model of the Sky Tower out of Lego.
The big reveal is being held at Toyco St Lukes on Saturday.
Ryan McNaught, also known as the Brickman, is building parts of the model in his Australian workshop and transporting it to New Zealand to put together in the store.
Mr McNaught is the only Lego Certified Professional in the Southern Hemisphere.
Lego Certified Professionals are adult Lego hobbyists who have turned their passion for building and creating with the colourful bricks into a full-time or parttime profession.
award- winning models are known for small quirks such as minifigures in odd places in the model.
The Sky Tower model will be a long-term feature in Toyco and it is believed it will be New Zealand’s largest Lego model.
People can come to the store to watch the model being finished and children will be able to build their own Lego Sky Tower.
Following an in-store competition one person will win the opportunity to be a mas- ter builder assistant for a day and will help Mr McNaught finish the Sky Tower in store.
