About this creation
Category: 16 or fewer parts
2013 MocAthalon
Team Jigsaw


The rare Wasjig Bird is known for its distinctive beak and its luscious flowing tail feathers. Here we see the Wasjig Bird contemplating its meal. The Wasjig Bird is unable to fly due to its tiny wings and oversized beak, so it spends its days contemplating abstract philosophical concepts and attempting to answer the big questions in the universe.

Some say the Wasjig Bird knows the meaning of life, but others point out that we will never know for sure. It can't speak, since it's a bird.

Breakdown and part inventory:


I put a focus on using obscure pieces and connecting them in ways that the pieces certainly weren't intended to connect by. Almost everything is held in place by friction, but once together the bird is quite stable. My favourite (or most despised) part of the MOC are the eyes, which took me almost an hour to get right, using tweezers to push the levers and rubber band (which ends up being tight to complicate matters) through the Hero Factory mask. Those pieces in the piece photo are actually duplicates, since I want to hang on to this MOC for a while but I knew that I really wouldn't enjoy attempting to reassemble the eyes.

I think Nick was wrong on this one. All about NPU and You have chosen some very unique pieces and gelled them together. Rubber band for eye whites? I mean who thinks of that?! 5 easy points here. This should have been a perfect. ~Thoy

This is the MOC this category was created for. Brilliant design all around. Btw - make the 2nd pic (profile) your main pic. The one you have there now reminds me more of a frog. 5 points.

Well, Nick. I think this is the best 16 piece entry yet. You used unexpected pieces and judicious part selection to create an interesting , fully formed creation that doesn't look sparse anywhere.

Thanks for the breakdown, I was wondering how the fish was made :D In all seriousness though, very unique and creative, and the blob alien things on the back are brilliant.
