"As much as I love Lego, first as a kid, then once again 20 years later, Birds is the first Lego set to inspire me to want to share my thoughts with anyone willing to read them on this site. As an adult fan of Lego, there are certain aspects to Lego that I'm simply not interested in - once the build is complete, I won't be using them as toys as I did when I was 10. So I like Lego now for the creation aspect, mini-figs of characters I've loved, and finally as a showpiece. Birds contains no mini-figs. But the build was excellent and employed techniques rarely seen in other sets. And with the build complete this set is the perfect example of what a Lego showpiece should be. It's amazing what Lego can be made to look like, and this set will inspire conversation in every new person that sees it. This set is very unique, perhaps sharing some qualities with the Architecture line, but I'd still love to see more like it."
