Here at BrickNerd, we like to occasionally look back at past creations from the community. . .Especially when it includes seeing your favorite troublemaking birds made out of LEGO. To me, it seems that the popular Angry Birds has still remained so to this day. Waaaaay back in 2012, Iain Heath created perfect little models for 3 of the iconic feathered beasts and 1 green ball of bacon. Now all we need is a slingshot and some wooden planks...
I don't really have anything against Angry Birds, well, mostly. I actually own the Star Wars version of the game (of course I do) and I'm pretty terrible at it. When I heard they were making a movie, well I just sighed, for Hollywood is officially out of ideas. I haven't seen it, and probably won't, but that doesn't diminish my appreciation of this brilliant micro build by vitreolum. There's a sense of story here, of contemplation, of calm before the storm. And I'm saying this about a little MOC based on a movie I haven't seen based on a silly game that's 7 years old...impressive.
With the imminent launch of 'Angry Birds the movie' what better than an Angry Birds MOC?! Builder Chubbybots pulls it together with a great back story that Tony Stark has been hired by the Birds to help them defeat those naughty Pigs, and has designed the awesome creation 'Birdronica Mark 1'. This build incorporates one of the minfigs from the LEGO Angry Birds sets as the driving force behind the bird bot. Those Pigs better run home!
This month's LUGnuts challenge is Anger Management, and is there anything more angry than the Angry Birds? Proudlove brings us this fine example of what happens when you combine poultry with power, and add a pinch of unbridled fury.
