Hawke's Bay's largest Lego exhibition has been tipped as a success by local Lego enthusiasts.
The inaugural Hawke's Bay Brickshow drew thousands of people to Taradale High School where around 30 imaginative and unique Lego creations were on display in among a Lego play area.
Hawke's Bay Lego User Group member Mark Wagenaar had his Lego sets on display for the first time and was thrilled with how the show, sponsored by Napier Toyworld, went.
Mr Wagenaar had everything from modified trucks to a Star Wars set, a castle set and a police road train.
"It is a lot of fun and usually they just sit at home so it good to show the public. I am pleased to say none were broken in the process."
Mr Wagenaar got in to the Lego craze six years ago after his daughter brought back a bunny rabbit from one of Napier Toyworld's Lego days.
Ever since then he has spent hours creating Lego with some sets taking two hours and others taking up to 20.
His daughter, who helped him set up at the show, also gets in on the fun and has started collecting her own Lego with Mindcraft and Ninja Turtles her favourite.
The show was organised by the Hawke's Bay branch of WELL-LUG (Wellington Lego User Group) and Mr Wagenaar said this definitely wouldn't be the last.
"I was so impressed by it all and we had around 3000 people on that first day alone so it is something that definitely resonates with people. Lots of people asked me questions and they were really intrigued by it all."
What impressed Mr Wagenaar the most was the Millennium Falcon display.
"It was the size of a coffee table and you could see the interior designs, it certainly gave me a lot of inspiration for next time."
The next Brickshow is being held in Palmerston North in August and Mr Wagenaar said the club would be discussing the Hawke's Bay show at their next meeting and going from there.
"We are really pleased with how it all went and are looking forward to when we can do another one."
