Coming from the laboratory of builder Kevin H. this LEGO parakeet kaiju will have you running for the hills! The first thing I notice about this figure is the awesome neon green pieces. Makes me wonder if it’s radioactive… I particularly like the band on it’s belly, a panel popular in the Blacktron LEGO toy line back in the early 90’s. And since we’re looking at the details, pieces from the Bionicle toy line, like those claw hooks for talons, abound! They give the mechanical monstrosity a machine-like texturing that would make Mechagodzilla jealous. This build is as beautiful as it is scary, but I prefer it as LEGO than a real mech terrorizing cities. Though I’d watch that movie!
Ah, love is in the air! In India, it’s the tail end of the breeding season for the ring-necked parakeets. These sweet birds are busy raising this year’s youngsters, and looking good while doing it! Leave it to Felix Jaensch to immortalize a pair in LEGO. Many times over, we’ve seen gorgeous animals from Felix, but they continue to impress us. For me, I think I’m most appreciative of the fact that he can show us the same bird in twenty different poses, and they’ll all look great. The realism is exceptional.
While you’re here, I definitely recommend taking a look at Felix’s other animals. We’ve featured many of his creations, but in the spirit of this avian duo, how about some birds? To list a few, check out a magpie, a blue and gold macaw, a kestrel, and even another parrot with a baby (plus a toucan for good measure).
