Sounds good! After a couple of false starts I'm quite pleased with my effort. There's still some tweaking to be done, but overall it's come together better than expected.

I'm really looking forward to seeing what everyone has made. Certainly the theme is potentially much more diverse in scope, but I took my original inspiration from only four diferent pieces, so it'll be interesting to see if any of us have actually gone down very similar routes due to the limitations of the set.

My design and build are final. Will ping it off later.

I'm looking forward to see if and how similar people have thought and built given the brick limitation.

Gonna tackle this over the weekend, I have an idea for a design in mind, if that doesnt work I have a backup idea to try, if that doesnt work then Ill throw some random bricks together and make up an animal. Either way it should be fun.

I will send picture later too. I got a bit cocky and built some smaller animals with the bits left over... if you squint at them they are kind of ok. :simper:

Oh dear, I hadn't realised that we'd be using the same set again. Mine is currently in bits and strewn about the house:

"Yes, of course you can play with it." :fp:

I'll try and salvage it over the weekend, gonna be pretty tough to come up with something this time!

Finished 8-)

I'm extremely pleased with how it's turned out, which is good because it's the only idea I had. There are a couple of bits where I haven't been able to keep the colours and pieces symmetrical, which is devastating if you're as OCD about these things as I am. Pics this weekend!

Aces. Wondered if someone else might go down the owl route. Some really neat ideas here, guys. I love being able to get so much mileage out of one little set.
