    The best piece of advice I can offer you: do not pay anyone to make something that simple for you. I did a quick google search, and here's the origin of the figure: https://www.peninsulatrailrunners.com/about-ptr
    You're going to need a few blue bricks and plates as well as a 1x2, 2x2 or 2x3 white brick. The letters are probably a custom-made sticker. The loop at the top appears to be a cable tie - you'd need to look at the real thing to know how it's attached if you want a perfect copy.
    Do you merely want to achieve the same finished product, or do you want the replica to be built in exactly the same way, using exactly the same parts? If the former, the difference won't be noticeable unless you take it apart or look really closely. If the latter, you'll need close-up images of the body and head in order to determine their makeup. I can see that either way you'll want eight 2x2 bricks and two 2x4 plates for the legs, and at least two 2x2 bricks for the tips of the hands. I could give you further advice, but it'd be pure speculation. I apologise that I can't be of more assistance. Perhaps someone with a keener eye could tell you more.

    Your best bet would be bricklink.com. Don't know if you're close to a lego store, or if you even have them in Australia, but you should be able to get some bricks from the pick a brick wall.

    eBay is fine but a little unreliable and pricey. There's a similar site exclusively for Lego: https://www.bricklink.com/v2/main.page
    It's a little unwieldy and not great when it comes to shipping to Australia, unfortunately. Since you only need basic bricks, your best option would be purchasing them direct from Lego: https://shop.lego.com/en-AU/Pick-a-Brick
    This is a lot easier to use. The basic search hardly works so you should use the advanced search at the bottom left of the page. Lego use specific names for specific colours, so blue = "Bright Blue", grey = "Medium Stone Grey", pink = "Light Purple".

    Maybe one of those generic brick boxes they have at all of the big box stores would be easier.

    @Ben1wylie

    I made your original blue running man in Stud.io for you.


    This is the parts list:




    You can view the steps in your browser and spin the model to see how to build it, if you need to view another angle. Just click on step view. Hope I am not patronising you but I don't think you have used bricklink much before.



    Hope this helps and just ask if you need help with the steps.

    As @Baby_Yoda correctly pointed out, don't pay anyone!!

    Elspeth
