LEGO Bird Project: 10,000 Supporters Get LEGO to Mass-Produce Them.
Lego announced that they would be producing a set based on Tom Poulsom’s Bird project submission to Lego Ideas. Lego did an interview with the creator of Birds (21301) where we get a peek at the set and box art.
“I have always been a fan of LEGO, and a big admirer of the natural world, rekindling my love for LEGO two years ago and building what most boys would build, cars, trucks and spaceships, etc. However, being a gardener and a lover of nature I wanted to build something related to my job. One day during a break from digging in a customers garden a Robin Red Breast landed on my fork handle. This was the eureka moment behind what is now the LEGO Bird Project,” Poulsom told twobirdersandbinoculars.
The end result is beautiful and not very far off from the original design, which is a joy. It looks like all they really did was tweak the bases for the models.
