About this deal

You can tilt the Robin’s tail up and down which alters the shape slightly, but the squarish shape of the plates gives it a rather primitive look. When compared to the vast majority of set in the Ideas theme, this set is still an excellent investment for collectors. Final thoughts: LEGO Birds is one of the most fascinating LEGO sets that I’ve ever built in my life.

A few interesting SNOT techniques are used, although some parts of the build are a bit repetitive but still enjoyable.He has provided each bird with its own unique SNOT (Studs Not On Top) techniques and very thoughtful engineering which makes the models really strong and durable. If you’re story sucks, you may have we’ll have submitted a three-block Duplo entry indistinguishable from a 2 year old slap-together.

com An in-depth review of the LEGO Dune Ornithopter featuring working wing functions and a great minifig lineup including LEGO Baron Harkonnen! I don’t watch or particularly care about Doctor Who, so I’ll wait till I see the final product before deciding to get it! You’d most likely say, ‘well, it was a way to give back to the community of builders and fans out there who can now, too be a part of the Lego brand. I built him that evening and enjoyed building this bird so much that I decided to build some of my favorite birds from Europe. I mean, Birds was the largest set coming in at 580 pieces, many of which were tiles and cheese slopes– many pieces for a relatively small set.If you’re on the fence or have never considered adding this set to your collection this year, I hope you change your mind as it is a truly outstanding and innovative LEGO set. There are also a few rare pieces in this set: Plate 6x16 (Dark Green), Right Plate 3X8 W/Angle (Earth Blue), Left Plate 3X8 W/Angle Earth Blue), Roof Tile 4X2/18° W/Cor. It has its flaws like any other set: the grey Technic axle used between the Robin and tree branch, black pieces used instead of ‘Earth Blue' for the Blue Jay and the loose ‘Earth Green' pieces of the Hummingbird. While sure, each green-lit product costs them a small percentage going to the person who came up with the design, but think of everything else that’s out there. Yes LEGO have to use as many simple and primary colours in the internal structure of any model to make it easier for the builder to find the pieces when constructing a set.

When I was a wee little kid, I used to be quite chatty and talkative which led to a lot of people drawing a connection with my first name and the Blue Jay’s – the bird is known for being noisy and quite rambunctious, which I thought was rather apt. I just hope all the builders are completely aware of this and just like showing off their builds knowing full well none of it is protected. Flip open the booklet and you’ll be treated to a nice little profile of the set’s designer, Tom Poulsom.Take a look at the other collectable sets in the series including the LEGO Flower Bouquet (10280) and the LEGO Bonsai Tree (10281). The popularity of his Ideas submission soared, garnering 10,000 votes and beating out several other submissions to become 2015’s first Ideas set. The back of the manual has the same illustration as the back of the box except that it doesn’t have all that Ideas branding obscuring the pretty pictures. Features 3 models: a Blue Jay, Hummingbird with flower, and a Robin Includes a presentation stand for each bird featuring its Latin name Enjoy building and rebuilding these intricate models Display the birds using their specially designed stands Recreate the birds that received over 10,000.

However, I cannot fully side with your judgement:"Overall this set it is a must have set for adults.Unlike the Robin which had a relatively easy to visualise build, the Blue Jay packs quite a few nifty build techniques using a myriad of clips, ball joints and angled elements. We restrict the purchase limit available to a single household to ensure fairness for all of our fans.
