It’s taken a few attempts, but spring seems to have finally sprung here in Finland. In any case, the birds are a-singing every morning, which puts me in the mood for LEGO builds like Louis Barbedor (Loysnuva)’s. He’s a cute little fella, isn’t he? The bird, that is. I’m afraid I don’t know Louis well enough to say either way. I like the construction of the body – it’s very nicely rounded off with some newer curved slopes and wedges. The branches are a nice touch too; presumably their main function is to support those spindly legs, but it works so nicely as a stand for this little tweeter.
The line of Star Wars themed constraction figures has introduced a number of great parts for builders who dabble in Bionicle inspired creations. This imposing figure by Loysnuva makes use of the large lightsaber blade found in both 75109 Obi-Wan Kenobi, and 75112 General Grevious in its elaborate head adornment. Along with some excellent reverse jointed legs, the model also makes good of some of the most common elements found in sets today, the car tire. Small tires add some bulk to the limbs and tail, while several inverted tires form the torso.
