Missing Maine and feeling blue.

A couple of years ago I got to spend a month-long sabbatical from work on the coast of Maine. I really, really wish I could go back. While I was there, I enjoyed quite a bit of lobster, but nothing quite as rare as this blue version from Walter Whiteside Jr. In nature, a blue lobster is the result of a one in two million genetic mutation. In LEGO, the blue lobster is even more rare. In fact, this is the only one I’ve ever seen. With the great organic shaping and realistic details, it’ll certainly do in a pinch. (Get it? Because of the pincers? Okay, that was a bad pun. Nevermind.)

Don’t eat the blue lobster!

I’m not sure how tasty ABS plastic is, as I’m pretty sure it’s not meant for human consumption. But I have to admit I’m a little tempted by Walter’s creation. Maybe with enough lemon…

Don’t eat the blue lobster!
