Michael Peebles won't tell you exactly how tall his outsize mini-figurine is, because he knows as soon as its height is public, someone will build a bigger one.
But Doug the Lego miner towered over the crowd at the annual Bendigo Bricks fan display event.
At round-about 2.7 metres, he's possibly the largest mini-figurine in the world.
As a miner, Doug was an appropriate choice to represent Bendigo's Lego User Group, Mr Peebles said.
And Doug wasn't the only piece of Bendigo paraphernalia on display.
Graphic designer Dale Harris showed off his small-scale Shamrock Hotel to the crowd.
The familiar facade faced on direction, while a cross section of rooms sat on the other.
Some rooms are as they are in the Shamrock itself, others Mr Harris designed to show the type of things that happen in a hotel.
Recreating Bendigo buildings is in certain respects about creativity for Mr Harris, who is a graphic designer.
And, models like the Shamrock Hotel tell a story.
President of the Bendigo Lego Users Group, Mr Peebles spent about three months building Doug the miner.
It took about 180 hours, and maybe 50,000 Lego blocks.
No one's stepped forward to say they've built a bigger figurine, so Mr Peebles has sent the certification paperwork off to the Guinness Book of World Records.
But what's the appeal of hours spent building Lego for an adult?
Mr Peebles rediscovered his love for Lego when his children got their first sets, quite a few years ago now.
They're still into it now, but he freely admits it's less than he is.
The appeal of Lego lies in good hearty fun, and how Lego can be used as art, he said.
"It's ageless. It's been the same system for over 60 years and now it's multi-generational as well," he said.
"It's still an art medium. It's still an ability to express themselves and use that artistic talent."
"It's not timber, it's not clay, but it's in that same group."
