TO celebrate the launch of NBA 2K21, 2K ANZ teamed up with the legendary Ryan McKnaught AKA The Brickman to build a LEGO version of one the games cover athletes. 200 hours and 42,000 bricks later, The Brickman has finally unveiled his life-size LEGO statue of Zion Williamson.
“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.”
“NBA 2K21 is a significant milestone for the series introducing ground-breaking new features that have been built from the ground up utilising the power of new gaming hardware,” said Ben Seccombe, Director of Marketing & Communications at 2K Australia and New Zealand. “This is a fitting way to celebrate this landmark by rebuilding cover star Zion Williamson out of LEGO® bricks, showcasing his impressive brick wall style physique.”
