LEGO has officially revealed the images of the new LEGO Ideas Birds (21301) set as well as an interview with the project creator, Tom Poulson. It consists of 580 pieces will be available on January 1, 2015 and [email protected] has it listed for $44.99.
The Hummingbird is of the Green Violetear (Colibri thalassinus) variety, the Robin is of the European variety (Erithacus rubecula), and the Blue Jay (Cyanocitta cristata) is native to North America. What’s cool about this set is that the name plates for each of the birds have their Latin names as well as the unique stands they sit on. The Hummingbird has a clear one which makes it look like it’s hovering next to the flower. The Robin is on a wooden branch and the Blue Jay is on a metal perch.
Check out the details of the LEGO Ideas Birds (21301) set below.
