'You have ... one minute to buy this book. Your time starts now. Good luck! (Seriously, though - you should. It's great.)' HAMISH BLAKE Challenge each member of your household to a building competition that is the brainchild of Brickman himself, star judge of the smash hit TV show LEGO (R) Masters Australia and a LEGO Certified Professional. Each of the 30 challenges can be attempted at beginner, intermediate and advanced levels. So whether you're 5 or 105, an infrequent brick builder or a huge LEGO fan, this book will get you off your screen and get your creative juices flowing with even the most basic LEGO collection.

Including: - Maze runner: build a maze with obstacles and design themes - Model mashup: roll a die to determine which hybrid model you need to build in under 2 hours-a Supersonic Banana Plane, anyone? - Self-portrait: one of the hardest things to build with LEGO is curves, but Brickman helps you crack the techniques for building a recognisable 3D portrait of yourself.

Packed with pro tips and suggestions on how to take your builds to the next level, as well as a 'know your bricks' glossary, this book will turn you into a Master LEGO Builder in no time.

Are you up for the challenge?
