Not only that but they are on hand 7 days a week to answer any of your burning MMB questions and help you with your own LEGO® builds! PHEW!

Meet Alex! 

Alex has been a Master Model Builder here at LEGOLAND Discovery Centre Manchester since we opened way back in 2010, but before he joined the LEGOLAND family, he used to be a Postman! 

Hailing from Oldham he studied art at University to really hone his creative talents, and during his spare time he loves to ramble in the countryside. 

Favourite LEGO® Character: Forestman

Favourite Brick Colour: Yellow Flamish Orange

 

Meet James! 

James joined the LDC family back in September 2018 when he beat off over 1000 other applicants for the job as our second Master Model Builder! He found out he had got the job when a giant LEGO® shark appeared on his doorstep! 

James has loved LEGO® since the age of 5 when he received his very first LEGO® set for Christmas. With a degree in fashion design, he has even made a LEGO® themed shirt! 

In his spare time, James creates cool costumes for him and his friends to wear at events around Manchester! 

Favourite LEGO® Character: Shark Guy & Poison Ivy 

Favourite Brick Colour: Bright Green
