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.

Despite being the simplest model, the Hummingbird takes the cake for the most interesting scene overall. Birds is such a refreshing revelation to me as an adult LEGO fan and I really want this set to sell well. Birds represents the best of LEGO Ideas, and despite lacking the star-studded draw of licensed creations, is shaping up to be one of the top sets this year even if it’s only January.From the side, some of the great details such as the use of layered tiles and sharp angles to convincingly recreate the bird’s feathery look. 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. Appeal to builders aged 9 and up with a fun gift to have in time for both spring and Easter – the LEGO Bird’s Nest (40639) kit. Considering all the other options, they were pretty much the only ones likely to succeed based on Lego’s track record for set selection. I was digging a vegetable patch one day and during a quick break I noticed a Robin land on my fork handle.

Another example is the Technic axle going through the underside of the Robin could have been transparent, now it seems as if it's part of the Robin. One advantage with this compared with other birds is that the Robin can stand on its two very small feet without extra support, again heads up to Steen for some really great engineering techniques used. The 9th Ideas set sees an interesting concept brought to life – beautiful brick-built models of a trio of birds: a Robin, Blue Jay and Hummingbird. Being an Ideas set, the instruction booklets are of the premium variety, made of thicker and glossier paper and have a lot more than just building instructions.I await each new quarterly review and announcement with feverish anticipation, curious to see what fan-voted set from LEGO Ideas gets turned into a retail product. I haven’t made a decision yet but I’ll be sure to promise that the quality and integrity of the blog won’t dip at all. Contact Us LEGO, the LEGO logo, the Minifigure, and the Brick and Knob configurations are trademarks of the LEGO Group of Companies. 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. Originally hand-crafted with bricks from a wide variety of LEGO sets, LEGO fan and bird enthusiast Thomas Poulsom pieced together a series of beautiful British birds as a tribute to the natural world that he wants to bring more attention to.

I have two complaints which I have with most LEGO sets: when having SNOT techniques used in a LEGO set is requires you to assemble an opposite colour to the brick/s it will attached on to. The two sloped 'Earth Green' bricks that were used to hide most of the back of the plates is a great addition however it's only conned by one Technic pin which means doesn't stay still. Unlike the criticism I leveled the Robin for having a very rectangular shaped tail, it doesn’t seem to affect the Blue Jay as much thanks to a clever combination of the stripes and narrow tail which gives it much more definition than the Robin’s plain brown tail.However some people may not like this simply because they may look out of place if the pieces are used for your own creations. I feel cheated and I would have preferred them to be 'Earth Blue' I don't understand why LEGO had to be lazy and choose black instead. com Heads up, today is the final day that you’ll be able to score 2x LEGO Insider Points on all purchases on LEGO. Brick-a-brac is a UK based e-commerce retailer specialising in discontinued, rare and exclusive LEGO products. Each Bird has its own stand very similar to the architecture stands but this time we have the green grass with a small pedestal for the birds to fit on.

Now you can build your own tribute to this exceptional flower with this LEGO® rendition of the eye-catching house plant. The stand is also well designed, you can turn the Technic axle 360° to suit the owners needs of display and it can also be easily be separated. The final bird is the Hummingbird (Colibri Thalassinus) which sits on a ‘Plate 6x16’ for the additional flower assembly.

I guess some folks would "fly" them but I feel these are more meant to be built and then displayed and appreciated. It was like building a sphere – you first started out with the core and slowly added all the little elements around it such as its red plumage, tail, wings and legs. The brown 'Plate' would have been nice in transparent but I may be mistaken, but it could be its feet? 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. The Robin looks fantastic, with its signature bright red breast contrasted against its brown feathers.
