Thomas Poulsom’s British Birds Become Official LEGO Set


Back in 2012 I posted about Thomas Poulsom’s Lego birds, and at that time he was hoping Lego would one day turn his creations into an official set via the Lego Ideas platform. Well that day has finally come! As of January 1st, Thomas’ set of birds is available over on Lego’s website.

The video below shows Thomas’ original idea, a set of British Birds: a puffin, a kingfisher, a woodpecker, a blue tit, a goldfinch, and a robin. You can see lots of images of this series on Thomas’ Flickr page. The set that Lego ended up producing includes a robin, a bluejay, and a hummingbird.

Congratulations Thomas! See the finished set and the video below.
