I worked on this months ago, and while the end results aren't exactly what I hoped, I still think it looks good. The bird is the official Lego bird in dark gray that I used a black sharpie and paint pen on. I then drilled holes in the side of it to allow the wings to sit into. The uneven edge of the bird's sides made the holes imperfect. I glued in the Brick Warriors wings to keep them stable. I had hoped they'd just sit in there so I could turn them for different poses. I'm still happy with it and think doing more would be fun. Maybe a clay beak or a completely clay molded body would be cool.

Great idea!
I think it came out really good, can't wait to see what other 'upgrades' you give this bird.

Looks awesome, I doubt the little edge from the old wings will disturb anything in a larger context.

Thanks for the comments. I think next time I try one, I'll make the holes bigger so that the wings go deeper and look more natural. Looking forward to trying more in different colors.......someday.

Brilliant work Quickblade, it looks more like a cockatoo than the parrot it once was...

That's pretty cool! You did a good job with the conversion, that'd be an awesome, but somewhat large helm crest!
