Master Model Builder performs LEGO magic tricks on TikTok
A master model maker took to TikTok to show off some LEGO illusions as well as a behind-the-scenes look at a LEGOLAND Discovery Center.
Each LEGOLAND Discovery Center has a resident Master Model Builder, a certified LEGO expert who works to care for and create new models, and who apparently reveals some LEGO techniques on the video-sharing platform, TikTok.
Arizona LEGOLAND Discovery Center master model maker Alec Posta created an account on TikTok in early 2021 to showcase some of his work, with a recent video highlighting some LEGO magic tricks.
Alec decided to keep all of the illusions in upgraded LEGO bricks, with the first revealing a secret compartment and a minifigure inside. The last featured what appeared to be a normal black brick, but with an interior full of teeth.
However, it was the second tip that confused most viewers, with the interior of a brick seemingly changing in a fraction of a second. In a follow-up, the Master Model Builder explained the trick with an interior wall separating two interiors and quick hand movements making the detail invisible in the moment.
Other videos on the account include a guide to some references in nearby Miniland and other LEGO constructions. It offers a great way to look behind the curtain of the role in LEGOLAND Discovery Centers at a time when many cannot visit them.
