LEGO Creator Parrot (30472) Polybag Review

LEGO Creator Parrot (30472) Polybag

If you were able to pick up the LEGO 2016 Wall Calendar last November/December, there were some coupons that you could redeem at LEGO Brand Stores this year for some promotional items. From January 1-March 31, you can get a FREE 43-piece Parrot (30472) polybag with any purchase, while supplies last.

The Parrot is very simple build with you just stacking bricks up. There is some articulation in the build with the tail being on a hinge so it can move up and down. The wings are on the newer ball joints and so you can rotate them in plenty of directions.

The Parrot (30472) is a middle-of-the-road polybag. It is kind of cute but nothing else beyond that. Since it is free with any purchase, especially will all the newly released sets, it’s a decent pick up. If you don’t have a coupon to redeem it, the building instructions are now available online so you can create your own.

LEGO Store June 2015 Monthly Mini Build Event Parrot (40131) Review

Today was the last LEGO Monthly Mini Build at its current state. If you haven’t heard yet, the event will be a little different starting in July with the upcoming changes. For June, we have the Parrot (40131) which consists of 55 pieces.

In my opinion, the past two months LEGO has really hit homeruns with their Monthly Mini Builds with last month being the Koala (40131) and this month with the Parrot. The build is pretty satisfying by starting at the body and moving up to the head and finishing with the wings. The colors are very vibrant much to what a real parrot looks like. The wings are poseable and the tail can move up and down.

Overall, the Parrot (40130) is a great build for June. As I mentioned before, you are now required to register your child or whoever’s attending to be able to attend July’s Monthly Mini Build. If you don’t, you will be out of luck as only who have registered will be able to attend. Plus, you can’t take the build when you receive it. You’ll have to build it there along with the other participants. If you signed up and don’t attend, then you will lose out and won’t be able to receive the build. Registration lasts until the day before the event but I wouldn’t wait to sign up because most likely there won’t be any more spots open by then.
