Aro, Creature of the Skies!

We all know about the creature name leaks. I wanted to make a proof-of-concept, $10 bird set with a function. The results!


How the function works (you need both hands to activate both wings)

He's mountable too!


(Using pins to show what it would look like if function was pressed.)

So yeah, this was a quick build and a lot of fun to do. Comment and tell me how I did!

This is awesome. The accuracy to what a bird looks like is spot on, though it manages to have a biomechanics like feel, too. But the real icing on the cake has to be that nifty function.

This looks really great! Very well done. But, the first thing I thought of when I saw it...

Man, this is awesome!! @SwagMeister is totally spot on, it does look like a gucko!
I'm wondering if you could use the borok neck mechanism and a couple of gears to bring the two wing functions together to a central gear in the torso?
10/10 on the Moc anyway 😀

This is well done, you should contact LEGO and show them this, because this would be a cool thing to see, more so, because it could be used in introducing mote villagers into the sets.

And i want to see more villagers as sets.

Thank you all!

The original Gucko (Kewa) actually looks like a vulture. So thanks :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

IMO, it looks pretty bad on it's own. The wings don't look good at all due to the technic lift arms. I do like the flapping function, though. The legs are also too short. Adding another limb pieces, giving the MOC knees might look much better. Thugh, I can almost forgive all of those because

THE PROTECTOR IS RIDING IT!

I love riding MOCs, especially when a Preotector is riding them. GJ, mang.

Agreed, i hope LEGO would do the same and make animals that villagers or the protectors can ride, it would expand the lore of Gen2 and show a different yet classic way for the characters to get around, remember the Gukko and the Crabs.
