Harris, originally from West Sussex, England, has previously won multiple awards for his skillful creations. He specializes in recreating movie scenes with LEGO and has garnered a large presence of fans as a result. 

Harris is expected to have a “massive live gallery” and is said to be using “vibrant color and energy” in all his builds both days this weekend.

Additionally, Harris will be signing autographs both days at the convention center.
