My husband got some Lego® bricks recently, kits to build various vehicles and space ships. He also got some extra blocks. I could not resist making, (of course), a chicken! I like the robotic steampunk quality, and adding wheels to nearly any sculpture is fun. I like the scientific looking keyboard or display pieces, at the tips of the wings. Angle sided pieces are especially useful. Once I started playing with the bricks, too, we went to the Lego store and got some extra pieces. I’m coveting my husband’s kit-pieces that marry blocks in a way you can have the distinctive pegs pointing both ways, so we might order some of those off the Lego® site. I only like the appearance when the distinctive pegs point “up.” The pieces meant to marry blocks so they can do both seem like they’d open up more possibilities. I’ve made a dozen or so creatures now and photographed a few that I liked best. All but this one have since been disassembled now.
Here are a few more of my creatures.
