A Rooster-tastic creation!

Name of Model: Rooster
Created by: Cameron G.
Found at:
Combining Bionicle, System, and Technic parts in creation sounds like a bad idea in theory. However (as was shown in Tuesday's post) with a bit of imagination and creativity the difficulty of mixing different parts types can well be worth it. While Cameron G's rendition of a rooster is not a terribly accurate rendition of the real thing, the curves of any animal are difficult or near impossible to render with System elements alone. As shown with this creation, a little creativity and out of the [parts] box thinking can make anything come to life. Being "terribly accurate" doesn't count for terribly much, what does count is being creative with what you do.

To all of our readers who exclusively build with System elements: dump all of the Technic, Bionicle and other odd parts you don't know what to do with or how to use on a table and see what you come up with. You might be surprised!

As a side-note, this creation is planning to make an appearance with a group display at Brickfair 2010 (a LEGO convention outside of Washington DC open to the public on August 7th and 8th 2010).
