People of Perth, prepare to be awed, because Ryan 'The Brickman' McNaught is bringing his latest exhibition, Brickman Awesome, to Western Australia this winter.

Following successful runs in Sydney and Melbourne, Brickman Awesome, presented by Toyota, will open in Perth, just in time for the winter school holidays. Tickets to Brickman Awesome will be available to purchase from 10am on 1st June.

Brickman Awesome marks Ryan's third exhibition made entirely from LEGO® bricks. It features 39 models—none of which have ever been seen in Perth before—and is made up of more than two million LEGO® bricks, taking over 5,000 hours to build.

One of the most 'awesome' models in the exhibition is a full-scale LEGO® replica of the new, eighth generation Toyota Camry, which is 616 LEGO® studs long, 230 LEGO® studs wide, and weighs over a tonne! This will be showcased alongside a number of record-breaking models, including the only life-sized LEGO® Harley Davidson ever made, and the largest ever LEGO® Caterpillar 797 dump truck.

Adding to the awesomeness is the tallest LEGO® model in the Southern Hemisphere—a NASA SLS rocket, standing at a whopping 7.5m tall and built from more than 450,000 bricks! Taking more than 500 hours to build, Ryan has pushed LEGO® building boundaries by installing an in-built lighting and sound system, giving the effect that the rocket is blasting off into space.

As if that weren't awesome enough, visitors will be forgiven for thinking they have stepped inside a zoo, as they find themselves surrounded by a LEGO® kangaroo, koala, giant orca whale and even a full-sized LEGO® Australian saltwater crocodile, weighing over 60kgs and built using more than 40,000 LEGO® bricks.

Ryan said: "I'm really excited to be bringing Brickman Awesome to Perth. It's such a great city and when we brought our previous two exhibitions here we got the best reception—West Australians have such huge enthusiasm for LEGO!

"My team and I have had a great time building all these record-breaking models so I can't wait to share them with the people of Perth. Because this year's theme is quite broad, the models in the exhibition are pretty diverse, so whether you're an animal lover, a car fanatic, or you have a love of travel, there really is something for everyone—young and old!"

In addition to seeing the models that Ryan and his team have created, LEGO® fanatics will have the opportunity to show off their own building skills at Brickman Awesome. Visitors can help the Brickman team expand its colony of LEGO® emperor penguins and also build their very own time machines, even putting them on display next to Ryan's LEGO® models of Doctor Who's TARDIS and the DeLorean from Back to the Future!

They can also help the team smash yet another LEGO® record by contributing to Australia's longest LEGO® model, a giant snake. The Brickman team has already built the head and the tail but it needs all budding brickies who visit the exhibition to help build the belly. There will be an exclusive 24-hour Toyota pre-sale starting at 10am on Thursday 31st May.

A My Ticketek pre-sale will also run from 10am on 31st May until 10am on 1st June. Outside of school holidays (25th–29th June and 16t–20th July), adult tickets will be at the kids' price of $18.50. A new flexi ticket has also been introduced, allowing visitors more flexibility to attend any day or session time, for an additional $4.50 per person.

Telstra Thanks will be offering a 20% discount on exhibition tickets, exclusively for Telstra customers. Head to www.telstra.com/arts for more details on how to purchase.
