Brick­man plans Lego Sky Tower

Auckland City Harbour News - - NEWS -

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.

Mr McNaught’s

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.

Brick­man: Ryan McNaught, aka the Brick­man, is a Lego Cer­ti­fied Pro­fes­sional and will be cre­at­ing a 1.9m model of the Sky Tower.
