Lego Meets Srandebeest

I just played this to my boys… lots of interest, although we agreed that we’d need more pieces (and more specialist pieces) to build it..

There are downloadable instructions for the walker section on the You Tube description..

It’s very clever, and must have taken hours of work. Slightly creepy, though..
The concept is based on the work of Theo Jansen, who builds larger-than-life-size “animals”, which he lets loose on the beach. They’re wind powered, completely, I believe, but I’m not sure..
Just imagine seeing one of these coming at you on your peaceful stroll on the strand..

They’re very beautiful – majestic, even. They’ve been progressively modified to withstand the elements, with the view to eventually letting loose a “herd”, to freely roam the beaches…
Beautiful..
.. but did I mention creepy?
