Brick Banter – Brickman

FreeStyle Building Challenge – Season 1 Episode 2

This week on Brick Banter we were able to secure Australia’s most iconic big brick LEGO builder Brickman! If you are new to the LEGO world, you probably know Brickman (aka. Ryan McNaught) from the hit reality TV show LEGO Masters Australia on Channel 9. But Brickman has been in the LEGO community for a long time!

Ryan McNaught, as he was known back in the day, was one of the first regular exhibitors at Australia’s largest fan conversion Brickvention. Originally from the corporate world, a Chief Information Officer, Ryan’s creativity was limited and bound by the constraints of his job, however, the ability to express and create through a unique medium offered him an amazing opportunity; the ability to create something that both children and adults alike can be inspired by.

Ryan became a LEGO® Certified Professional in 2011 after years of dedication and commitment to building unique and inspiring builds for many years. In 2019 he joined Channel Nine’s new hit TV show LEGO Masters Australia as the main competition judge along side host Hamish Blake.

We decided to flip the table on Brickman, instead of being the one handing out the challenge, we thought it would be more fun to put the pressure on him! Brickman was given 10-minutes in a FreeStyle Building Challenge, but with all good challenges, there was a twist!

In the spirit of Brick Banter, Brickman was required to be interviewed at the same time as he was building. An easy task you would assume for one of Australia’s best builders!
