FROM LEGO racing cars to cricket to Star Wars, there is plenty on show for young and old at the first-ever Brick Spectacular show in Wagga.
Hundreds of people filled The Range Function Centre today to not only boost imagination and brick-building skills, but to also raise funds for Riverina charity Country Hope.
More than 50 tables of custom-built displays - ranging from architecture buildings to old-school LEGO trains to futuristic Star Wars spaceships - ensured the crowd was immersed.
Among the exhibitors was seven-year-old Matthew Draper from Wollongong.
He built a set, which took about four weeks, based on the popular video game Minecraft.
"I love LEGO and I'm obsessed with Minecraft and The Avengers and things like that," the youngster said.
Asked about the hardest part of the building process, he said it was the dragon.
"It was very hard to get it to stay still and not fall," Matthew said.
His father, Graham Draper, is the founder of the Wollongong LEGO User Group that organised the event in Wagga.
"About six months ago, I looked at different rural areas with a strong charity focused on kids," Mr Draper said.
"I came across Country Hope and thought Wagga's a big rural city, so why not go down there?
"We're all enthusiasts of LEGO and to use that to raise money for children's charities is an incredible thing."
As well as attendees from the city and the region, there were also interstate visitors, including 57-year-old Trevor Clark.
Mr Clark, who has been a LEGO fan for about the past 20 years after following in the footsteps of his partner, brought along his creation: a LEGO painting of The Phantom.
"The hardest thing was to source the bricks and decide how I was going to mount it to the bit of wood," Mr Clark said.
"I used to be the guy who carried the boxes [for his partner] and now I share her passion.
"But she's still a better builder than me."
Country Hope volunteer Jo Carlisle said it was wonderful to have an initiative like this to support them.
"It's an amazing way for us to raise some money to support local families and we're very grateful for their support," Ms Carlisle said.
"Everyone seems to be loving the active play tables - small and big kids alike seem to be getting into that.
"I was quite impressed with some of the chess sets."
The event continues tomorrow from 10am to 4pm at The Range Function Centre.
Tickets will be available at the door. They are $7 each per person, $30 for a family of five and free for children under three years old.
