Little bricks make a big impact - Sydney Brick Show (Lego)


Thousands of Lego fans descended on Penrith last weekend to celebrate Lego's 60th anniversary and experience the wonders of toy brick creativity.

They came to Penrith Panthers Exhibition Marquee in all age groups witnessing the wonder of tiny Lego characters through to the enormity of constructions where builders lost count of the number of pieces used (other than saying "thousands and thousands").

To the All Star Arena Precinct featuring Disney on Ice, add at least 400 mini figurines to the massive construction with a stage area that changed shows every 15 minutes.

Equally amazing was a Lego model of The Interlace, a 1040 Singapore apartment building in the heart of the city. It took seven years to build and was awarded the World Building of the Year in 2015 at the World Architecture Festival.

Lego build Graham Draper completed his version a little sooner, managing to get his model completed in only 10 months using between 85,000-95,000 pieces and 13,650 individual windows.

There were Gallipoli tributes for Anzac Day, Star Wars, the Beatles, Westminster Palace, Minecraft, Beauty & the Beast, city constructions, Harry Potter, Where's Wally, Radiator Springs (from our own Trent Weber - Yay!) early 20th century weapons, Transformers, marinas - in fact more than 100 sets adding a new dimension to creativity and construction entertainment.
