About this deal

Luckily, you’re only really going to be looking at the Robin from the front, so its lackluster behind isn’t really a detracting factor. Birds is a beautiful set that will not look out of place in your LEGO display room, living room or even your office desk. The popularity of his Ideas submission soared, garnering 10,000 votes and beating out several other submissions to become 2015’s first Ideas set.

As an AFOL, most of my sets end up on display so I would definitely be lining up for more sets like this. It must be nice for kids and fans that age to be able to have LEGO sets of the computer games that they play with on their devices.

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.

I really enjoyed that you could build each bird separately, which allowed me and my wife to spend a relaxing evening putting this set together. There are also a few rare pieces in this set: Plate 6x16 (Dark Green), Right Plate 3X8 W/Angle (Earth Blue), Left Plate 3X8 W/Angle Earth Blue), Roof Tile 4X2/18° W/Cor. However, there is market indication that the set will experience a slight annual growth decrease in the coming years, but this should be only by a few percentage points at most. Also, consider your own personal story – if you aren’t particularly interesting or don’t have a magical life story or job, forget it.Brickset, the Brickset logo and all content not covered by The LEGO Group's copyright is, unless otherwise stated, ©1997-2024 Brickset ltd. Heads up for those in the US, UK and EU - today is your final day to score 2x Insider Points on all purchases! I still like Ideas, the sets being put out are consistently awesome so I’ll be voting with wallet as long as they keep creating fun sets. When I saw this set for the first time I was very impressed with this set just like any LEGO Ideas set. I have always loved nature and being a tree surgeon and gardener I get a lot of inspiration from my job.

This set was designed by the very talented Steen Sig Andersen who has been with The LEGO Group for a very long time and it really shows. Features 3 models: a Blue Jay, Hummingbird with flower, and a Robin Includes a presentation stand for each bird featuring its Latin name Enjoy building and rebuilding these intricate models Display the birds using their specially designed stands Recreate the birds that received over 10,000. I mean, Birds was the largest set coming in at 580 pieces, many of which were tiles and cheese slopes– many pieces for a relatively small set. You can tilt the Robin’s tail up and down which alters the shape slightly, but the squarish shape of the plates gives it a rather primitive look. Melding LEGO and Technic in the most ingenious ways, the build is especially challenging but rewarding, especially when you see the functions in action!If you’re on the fence or have never considered adding this set to your collection this year, I hope you change your mind as it is a truly outstanding and innovative LEGO set. 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. These beautiful and detailed models come with their own presentation stands showing their scientific names, so that you can display your birds for allto enjoy or detach and play as you wish.
