Co-star of LEGO Masters Australia, Ryan ‘Brickman’ McNaught, and his team have built a life-sized LEGO replica of NBA star Zion Williamson.

It’s been constructed to promote the NBA 2K21 game on new-gen consoles, and stands – just like Zion – at just over two metres tall. The statue contains around 42,000 LEGO bricks.

“Working on this project with 2K Australia and New Zealand has been amazing. We had the whole workshop come together to help build Zion Williamson and, thanks to 2K, we’ve managed to create one of the coolest LEGO models we’ve ever built,” said Brickman. “The most unusual aspect about our LEGO Zion was his pose. Getting the LEGO bricks to stay together on these crazy angles – almost gravity-defying – was quite a challenge. Our skills were well and truly put to the test while building Zion, and we’re really proud of the model we’ve been able to build through this partnership.”
